How did S.F.'s Dogpatch get its name? It starts with a murder

But the word "Dogpatch" emerged in American lexicon in the 1940s, when Al Capp's comic strip Li'l Abner was peaking in fame.His characters lived in the fictitious hillbilly town of Dogpatch, Ky., a ridiculously exaggerated collection of backwater stereotypes.
...
"A 35-year-old San Francisco man was shot to death last night in front of a hotel where he lived in what police called 'the Dogpatch' on the fringe of the Potrero District," the Chronicle reported on Aug. 4, 1972.
...
That's the breaking news in this column: Dogpatch was likely named by the cops.

Joyce Carol Oates: He was a monumental literary presence' Photograph: Kyle Kielinski/The Guardian American writer Paul Auster was an anomaly: a thoroughly warm, witty, sympathetic, laughter-loving individual, with insatiable intellectual curiosity and a gift for friendship; at the same time, he was a monumental literary presence, somewhat intimidating for the zeal with which he immersed himself in his writing, near-overwhelming in the abundance of his creative energies.
