    Larry has done more for our city than most people who live here. His mad skills on the drums and buckets and his huge smile give everyone who passes 4th and Market a shot of sunshine. He is the least of anyone problems and the purveyor of happiness.

    God bless Larry! Ambassador of goodwill, generator of happiness and treasure of the city of San Francisco.
    Larry is constantly badgered by police, over "noise", etc. Construction at 4th and Market is 20 Db louder - but the cranes and tractors don't make children dance or their parents smile.

    STOP HARASSMENT of Larry Hunt! Make a day in this man's honor, and offer him the key of this city, before you lose the last of your soul.
