S.F. planning director's companion held on $1 million bail {boys will be boys}
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 2/27/8 | Steve Rubenstein

Bail was set at $1 million today for the San Francisco planning director's companion, who is accused of setting fire to historic Nob Hill residence of the fire chief where the couple were living.

Lance Farber, 47, pleaded not guilty to felony arson and vandalism in a brief appearance at the Hall of Justice, shortly before Superior Court Judge John Conway set bail.

"I am concerned that this is a public safety issue," the judge said.

Farber was ordered to return to court Friday after being evaluated for migraine headaches. His lawyer said the headaches have worsened since Farber was arrested Friday night.

Farber, a chiropractor who moved to San Francisco from Seattle in January with incoming Planning Director John Rahaim, was presented in court with a stay-away order forbidding contact with Rahaim.

The defendant was accused of violating an earlier stay-away order when he tried to contact Rahaim from jail by telephone Friday night following his arrest, police said. The first order had been issued that evening.

Farber's lawyer, Randall Knox, said it was an "accurate assessment" that the dispute was a lovers' quarrel. Farber set fire to the couple's mattress, then called Rahaim to tell him that he had done so before leaving the residence at 870 Bush St., where the men were living while they were looking for a permanent home, Knox said.

Knox said $1 million bail was excessive because Farber's is "not a typical arson case."

Now remember, these sexually confused people are completely normal in every way and not mentally unstable or other wise troubled. Say it over and over again.

I guess the Fire Chief’s ladder wasn’t tall enough for his boyfriend.

The Dennis T. Sullivan Memorial Fire Chief's Home, which honors a fire chief engineer killed in the 1906 earthquake and fire, was built in 1923 and is an official San Francisco landmark. The current chief, Joanne Hayes-White, is believed to be the first fire chief not to live in the house.

The boyfriend is the new city planning director - that's rich enough - not the fire chief who, I hasten to note, is a politically correct female, probably a lesbian.

...the dispute was a lovers' quarrel. Farber set fire to the couple's mattress...

Is this what they mean by "flaming?"

From an earlier article on the subject:

Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White does not live in the home at 870 Bush St
I suspect that the Fire Chief is in no danger of having a boyfriend run amok at her house. Since she doesn't use the house, the City used to let high-ranking bureaucrats use the house as a place to crash. They may want to re-think that policy.
