At the intersection of Sacramento and Francisco, there is a curious  twist on the usual method of  matching up cars and people: cars headed for the Financial District stop at the North side of the newspaper stands. Cars headed for Civic Center pull past the newstands to the South side, and if there is a line, back up to the newstands.  Passengers load up from the middle at a quick, rhythmic  pace, prompted in part by the arrival of passengers from BART.  One fellow held up a brightly colored sign to start a line of his own – guess  he got where he was going.  From 7:30AM to 9:40AM, we handed out 500 flyers!
