Because you always need to know which gang’s territory you’re visiting when you go to the bakery.

Or something. But seriously.

MissionLocal provides this map of bakeries in the Mission and gang territories. It doesn’t exactly map (pun intended) with the story about gang violence that follows it. In fact, there’s barely any mention of the bakeries in the story.

The map, it seems, is a total nonsequiter. The headline, for one, is misleading, in that the map shows bakeries as well as cupcakeries. And it’s questionable whether these two items—bakeries and gang territories—have much relevance to one another.

The connection is tenuous at best, but hey, it is nicely designed.
