Supervisor Matt Haney spent his 37th birthday walking through the Tenderloin talking about trash, needles and poop. And then he got a special gift: his shiny black shoe made contact with a smear of feces ground into the sidewalk.
He barely seemed to notice. But he did notice as another man stepped in a fresher pile as we rounded the corner of Eddy and Leavenworth streets.
“Look, he just stepped in it!” Haney said. “He’s now got poop all over his shoes.”
It turned out the two men had more in common than foul feet. They also shared a last name. Malcolm Haney, who said he lives in the Tenderloin’s Hamlin Hotel, took his misstep worse than the supervisor did.
