SF resident here. The high rent is due to a combination of increasing demand and an artificial restriction in supply. We (the city) can't do anything about demand, unless you count the jerks blocking Google buses, but we can increase the supply. The city has a ton of abandoned buildings that just aren't worth developing because of the draconian building restrictions here. Lift those restrictions and supply will increase, causing rent to fall, making almost everyone (except current property owners) better off.
EDIT: I'm off to r/lounge, peasants!

I think he was talking about buying tickets late at night or early morning, not when the flight actually is.

Oh, they still exist. I live in a major city and there are several in my neighborhood.

Based on polls I'd bet that Biden wins, but it's going to be close.
