Tourism is big business in San Francisco, bringing in $9 billion dollars a year to the city’s businesses.
Now, a major medical convention expected to bring in 15,000 visitors and drop $40 million in less than a week has decided it will stop bringing its members to the City by the Bay because they don’t feel safe walking the streets.

If you’re going to San Francisco
51 years ago, or what they used to call “the summer of love”, Scott McKenzie had a song in the music charts about San Francisco.
It was a tune about love and flowers and became the “hippie” hymn or so I heard in a History or Rockn’ Roll show.
If you’re going to San Francisco these days , please see this headline because you won’t be greeted anymore by gentle people with flowers in their hair: “Major Medical Convention Abandons San Francisco Citing Street Safety“.
This is from from the article:
The decline of San Francisco is another exhibit in the decline of liberalism, or better put a philosophy where “anything goes” and everybody is a victim of something.
Like the black on black shootings in Chicago, the problems of San Francisco are largely ignored by the media. I guess that it’s not convenient to talk about blacks killing each or drug addicts on the streets when the Democrats run a city.
It makes sense that conventions are looking for another city. Why would you want to visit an unsafe city? My guess is other cancellations will follow.
