dirty, dirty, dirty movies.

Some day a real rain will come:

The back of a dump truck delivering 20 tons of dirt to businesses on Sixth Street in San Francisco tipped and crashed into an adult video arcade this morning, narrowly missing three patrons. The back of the truck tipped over to the side and into the wall of the store, shattering windows and dumping dirt into the part of the store that houses booths for video peep shows.

Firefighters used a thermal imager to ensure that no one had been buried dead or alive under the mound of dirt. Then they closed off the area and waited for a building inspector to deem the building structurally sound.

This is the second accident in as many years to damage adult stores at the corner of Sixth and Mission streets. On Dec. 15, 2003, a 14-Mission bus slammed into the Golden Gate Adult Superstore across the street from the Liberty Bookstore. Seventeen people were hurt in that accident.

    I'm sorry, but this has to be asked...

    Truck fetish, or dirt fetish?

    I guess where that truck driver is from, drive-thru porno shops must be the norm.

    Don't you think it's marvelous what fine businesses line the "UN plaza"?
    judging by the signage in the bart station they're trying to make it more UN plaza less civic center or something.
