In this lively, first person narrative, Lloyd Kraal documents his twenty years experience working in a variety of construction capacities for the City and County of San Francisco. Everywhere he went, he encountered institutionalized corruption, fraud, widespread alcohol and drug abuse, intimidation, racism and violence. Lloyd captures the grittiness of his experiences with vividness and wit. In his culminating employment as the maintenance supervisor for the San Francisco Zoo, he witnessed first hand and attempted to correct the appalling neglect of facilities and abusive conditions that led to the fatal tiger attack of Christmas Day, 2007. There are many illuminating parallels that may be drawn between this insider account of the corruption in San Francisco and other large cities across the country.show more
