The San Franciscans: Kevin

Kevin, 11/23/02.
Kevin is a fixture in front of the Hyatt Regency at California and Drumm streets in the Financial District. When Mister SF arrived in San Francisco in the early '80s, Kevin was one of the very first people he saw. At that time, Kevin was sitting on this bench near the cable car stop. He was shouting about Ronald Reagan. For nearly 25 years, the Republican president has been a recurring topic in Kevin's rant. For startled tourists, the most important thing to know about Kevin is that he won't hurt anybody. He's just another character in the story of a City so little even its street people are famous.
