They're trying to figure out what to do with the Presidio Parade Ground, and they have architects working on it. They have no clue. One lady says, just plant some grass. Maybe she's right. I remember going through there and seeing all the old brick barracks perfectly kept up and full of soldiers I guess. As I was passing by, one poor guy was mowing grass under gunpoint if you can imagine that. A guy in uniform was just sitting there with his gun "supervising" the cutting of the grass. Uniform in those days was Vietnam synthetic all green. Seems like they could still do that, except kind of urban camo CCC and forget the gun, but the Presidio is so market rate it will never happen. It will be a largely vacant office park.
