Giant Cargo Plane Leaves Its Back Door Open – USAF C130, 2015 Fleet Week Airshow

Concrete and Clay and General Decay: San Francisco Wants to Landmark Our Ugly Japantown Peace Pagoda?

TweetHere it is: IDK, Japantown has a sizeable seismic safety issue, non? ICYMI, Japantown is nothing but an earthquake-unsafe concrete mess, courtesy of the idea of REDEVELOPMENT. If we cared more about people, we’d stop to think afore preserving the mistakes of the past…

OMG, Our Bloated SFMTA was Simply to Busy to Process Faxed Citation Protests, So It Shut Off Its Fax Machine?

TweetHere’s your lede, buried: “When Fixed began faxing its submissions to SFMTA last year, the agency emailed the startup to stop using their fax machine. When Fixed pointed out that it was legal to do so, the agency simply shut off their fax.” All’s I know about Fixed is the first few posts here. IDK, I was […]

SFMTA Spokesmodel Paul Rose Costs Us Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Per Year, But He Sounds Like a MUNI UNION Flack

TweetYes, over $200,000 in his Total Cost of Employment (TCOE). (You want to get into this, well, we can get into this.) Here’s the new stuff: “It does not appear the bicyclist was traveling in a bike lane,” said Paul Rose… I’d expect this kind of sophistry from a MUNI operators attorney, but not a […]

Let’s Knife: Standing in a Parking Space on Geary to “Reserve It” for Friends Driving Around Blocks Away is Unhealthy

TweetWhy? Because somebody just might cut you, you know, in a knife fight that you just might get involved with in the 94118, despite the fact (or, especially because?) you yourself don’t ever carry a knife: Or, in other words, you can’t really save a parking spot by standing in it because it’s agin the law.

Let’s Check Up on How Well Getaround Car Rental Company is Maintaining Its SFMTA-Designated Parking Spaces – Uh Oh

TweetI’ll just start with this: The fundamental purpose of the SFMTA’s massive street sweeping program is to make money for the SFMTA. So that’s been the situation over the years, but then came the rise of the rental car companies, you know, like Hertz and whathaveyou. So then the SFMTA made deals with Hertz and […]

Getaround Rental Car Parked Just Outside Its Designated Space on Fell – Gets SFMTA Citation for Parking During Street Cleaning?

TweetSo let’s see here. The Getaround rental car company is now leasing formerly public parking spaces from the SFMTA, right?

Dubious Claim: “THE FUTURE OF SF HOUSING WILL BE DECIDED NOV. 3RD” – How Could This Possibly Be True?

TweetProp A? That thing’s a nothingburger, sold as free money, something that won’t raise taxes. Well if it’s not going to raise taxes, then it’s not really much of anything, right? Prop F? I don’t think that it has much to do with THE FUTURE OF SF HOUSING, not really. In conclusion, the future of […]
