Tom Prete is a journalist, editor and writer. He has been editor of the San Francisco Independent newspaper and editorial-page editor of the San Francisco Examiner. For the past 12 years he has lived in a little Doelger house just a few minutes’ walk from Ocean Beach, and he grew up near Stern Grove. Tom’s editing clients include the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research association, but he has no involvement in policy matters. Tom isn’t a native San Franciscan, but his kids are -- and they know that if you can’t say something nice, you should say it to a Dodger.
