It's the drugs! Not the mental illness, unless you mean the mental illness caused by the drugs.
Who are the real perpetrators? The (possibly) over-diagnosed young (or not) people who have serious yet known adverse reactions to the over-prescribed drugs, or the ones who push these drugs, either out of ignorance, or denial ("only small percentage get these reaction")?
It is known that a small percentage of recipients of these antidepressants will react with suicidal and homicidal thoughts that sometimes, unfortunately, lead to actions.

The 1% is certainly happy when the rest of us argue over the little bitty things. (Not that CalWORKS is tiny to those that benefit.)

@DinahMason re: lack of crosswalks
There are actually plenty of crosswalks on Cliff Drive between Loma Alta and Meigs. They are unmarked crosswalks.
Any intersection unless explicitly marked otherwise has crosswalks extending from the corners whether they are painted or not.
Too many drivers do not know this. In any case, when we are pedestrians we need to take care at all crosswalks, marked or unmarked. The paint does not protect us.

Why districts? The idea is for better representation. What do we mean by better representation, and what would be the best type of representation? Let me answer that.
The best representative for me would be someone who agrees with me most of the time. Not necessarily someone who lives in my neighborhood.
This is where Choice Voting, a form of proportional representation, comes in. Everyone in the city votes for x candidates amongst the same list of candidates.
If issues A, B and C are important to me, I would vote first for the candidates who agree with me on A, B and C. If I still had votes left but no more candidates who agreed with A, B and C, I would then vote for a candidate who agreed with, say, A and B.
