Chronicle columnist Cynthia Millner's last two columns were about words with a San Francisco origin. Best she has been able to come up with is "hella," which I think is really more NorCal. She's asked for help. All I can think of is "hoodlum," which sources say was a corruption of the name of a San Francisco thug named Muldoon. Any suggestions?
