Sometimes old running grounds are my favorite running grounds. There was time when I used to run in Golden Gate Park every other day. I had not run there by myself in quite some time. Some things never change. There are scattered groups of Chinese doing Tai Chi, bikers starting their ride all decked out in vibrant colors, homeless waking up for a restless night, dog walkers and running buffs like myself. One thing is different now. With the opening of the Academy of Sciences there are now families lining up to get into this amazing, yet overpriced attraction. I went by the other day later in the afternoon and the line must have been 2 football fields long. Glad to see science and education are still thriving in this economy.
