Cliff House Closed by Federal Government and Citizens out of Work - Really?

Honoring the Cliff House and its long and Storied history in San Francisco

Cliff House #2 c1890

The second Cliff House, built by Adolph Sutro in 1896, was an 8-story Victorian structure. It offered fine dining, panoramic views, and art and natural science exhibits, which made it a popular attraction for the City's elite. It survived the 1906 Quake, but was destroyed by fire in 1907.

In case you have not been following this story, spirited entrepreneurs trying to keep unemployment of their staff and their enterprise afloat were shuttered by policies and rules of their landlord, the Federal Government, claiming that they cannot be open or serve the public or provide employment with Washington in its tizzy.   Really?  This is necessary why?  This helps who?  What kind of point are [t]hey trying to make? 

Are we lemmings or are we men?

I will add more to this and share the rest of the Cliff House history here later as I have more time
