When I was a kid I had that stuff from a can. So I'm probably biased against. I prefer lo mein.

Gosh I hate that kind of architecture in cities. It creates a walled off enclave with no street life. In SF's case, it would be a magnet for the homeless sleeping on the grass and in the bushes with no "regular people" to bother them because such people would have little reason to go into that maze of buildings. It reminds me of the 50s era "projects" except it's office buildings.

It really saddens me to think of all the great architecture that SF lost due to the earthquake.
