Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow

I know I complain about what sucks about SF all the time, the overpriced homes, the fanatical political correctness, the high number of fudge packers. Regretfully, my complaints are valid most of the time. But this pic (taken a couple days ago) reminds me that underneath all the gay still exists a mystical underground society known as the Tongs in SF's Chinatown. Shown in the pic is Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, who claims to have controlled all Asian gangs in the Bay Area in the 90's. Even though the Chinese Suge Knight supposedly ratted out his homie it appears that he still gets much love at a Chinatown funeral.

More about the recent mob-style killing. Here.
