San Franciscans, keep those snarky remarks bubbling up in your brains to yourselves. Or at least limit them to Facebook.

The Sacramento News & Review has released the Sac 100, a guide to the “most interesting people in the region.” Those on the list include UC Davis particle physicist Thomas Cahill; fashionista Olivia Coelho; mixed martial artist Urijah Faber, poet, sidewalk chalk artist, and Tourette’s sufferer Ground Chuck; online lit mag publisher Elijah Jenkins; Mayor Kevin Johnson; Johnson’s fiance and school reformer Michelle Rhee; sci-fi author Kim Stanley Robinson; city poet laureate Bob Stanley; SCOTUS Justice Anthony Kennedy; outsider artist Steve Vanoni, and KQED’s own Sac bureau chief John Myers.
