On viscous news days such as today, we reach into our inbox to see what readers have on their minds. Here's something:

I’m now a car owner living in Russian Hill and am scared to death of having to search out parking every night, and I don’t want to spend $300/mo on a parking space.

Is there a good Google map mash-up that shows best places to park in the city? Or do any readers have tips on how to street park in Russian/Nob Hill?

Any vehicle drivers out there want to help out one of your brethren?
