We had terrible news this week. San Francisco Chronicle Assistant Managing Editor David Wiegand, my founding co-anchor on The Do List, was found dead in his home on Tuesday. He was omnivorous in his approach to the arts, and together we crafted The Do List out of that ideal, embracing everything from classical to rap, from Shakespeare to the weirdest performance piece, from veteran to young talent. David would have wanted the show to go on, and this week’s episode is dedicated to him, and his memory.
