SPJ's Monthly Mixer with Chance Martin and Doug Ferrari 
Get a new view of San Francisco's infamous homelessness crisis at SPJNorCal's January mixer. Chance Martin, editor of San Francisco'sStreetSheet, will talk about its unique perspective in covering homelessnessissues, usually written by writers with first-person experience. SanFrancisco's Street Sheet is the oldest street newspaper worldwide, andhas broken numerous stories since its launch 16 years ago, includingan investigation of a lavish expense account run up by a homelesscenter director who was also cutting budgets for an indigent foodprogram. That coverage resulted in the director's dismissal. A 2001story, called "Blood on the Clownsuit" publicized the homeless plight of famed comedian Doug Ferrari, which led to Chronicle coverage andthen Ferrari's friends coming to his aid. Now back on the comedycircuit, Ferrari and his wife Beth Ferrari are the brains behind a newpolitical humor column in Street Sheet that will be written, on analternating basis, by various San Francisco comedians.
