TweetA modern day warrior Mean, mean stride Today’s Tom Sawyer Mean, mean pride Though his mind is not for rent Don’t put him down as arrogant His reserve a quiet defense Riding out the day’s events McAllister Balance, control and effortlessnessness – this Bro knows how to get around the Big City in a way […]
TweetMost of San Francisco’s murders take place in the giant “S” that snakes from the Twitterloin through SoMA, through Hayes Valley, through La Mision, and then on down to Bayview / Hunters Point and Visi Valley. Year after year. But occasionally we get murders out in San Francisco County, in the Avenues, the suburbs. And […]
TweetThe white truck on the left is parked on the sidewalk. The SFMTA “knows” this because a dozen SFMTA-employed eyeballs have just passed by to see it. Yet, it didn’t get ticketed. OTOH, the white car on the far right _did_ get a ticket, you can see it, for blocking a street sweeper on street […]
TweetThey used to hang out on Market near 7th, but now they’ve been pushed north, closer to the Tenderloin Crime Containment Zone: This is what happens when you give food to a food bank. Oh well.
TweetWhat’s that, when you were a mere pup cherry trees blossomed in March or April and now you’re seeing blooms in late January and the start of February? Like here on Grove yesterday, and all over SF pretty soon: But actually, the trees you’re seeing are actually flowering plums, which are known for their early […]
TweetAs seen near the end of Turk, which looks like Cuba sometimes what with all the 1950’s cars parked about: Which angle is your favorite?
Tweet(Well, sure it’s not an actual bike-only path, it’s a multipurpose trail, or something. But most call it the bike path cause bike riders are allowed on it, as opposed to the ped-only path near Oak on the other side of the Panhandle.) I’m a polite ped so I generally stay off the paved part […]
TweetIt looks like this, with about 20 people queuing up about 20 minutes before the event begins: Would SFGov / Rec and Park consider these fliers “illegal?” Yep, they would. Anyway, that’s what it looked like.
TweetThis effort appears to be similar to the SFMTA’s attempt to add traffic signals on Haight at Scott and Pierce. This isn’t the worst example of NIMBYism, but I’d say it’s fairly alarmist, fairly absurd. I’ll just say that, generally speaking, it’s generally harder to get around town these days by car, by bike and […]
TweetApparently, we, as the second largest town in the bay area, are all saying NOPE to e-cigs and we’re spending money to send that message all the way to North Carolina: Ok fine.
TweetShe hectored only the riders who stopped for her at the crosswalk. She was angered by the riders who went through the red, but they were too far away for her to hector. Her unfocused rage came out against those who were already doing as she wished. Then after she passed by, riders began to […]
TweetOn the back of a flatbed tow truck, again: Oh Maserati drivers, will you ever win?
TweetKing-American hauled off to UC at least one Jetta occupant: The area around USF seems more like a college town these days, with tons of stus milling about the surrounding blocks, as compared with a couple decades back – IDK why, perhaps that’s just my impression…
TweetGet your 2015 coyote update from Hoodline. Coyotes are small, brownish, wild dogs, basically. They run with their non-bushy tails held down. Thusly, as seen on JFK Drive near the Bison Paddock, shortly before Fish and Game plumb blew this critter away, with a rifle: Lots of people don’t notice them, cause they hide most […]
TweetSo, taxpayer spending on the ineffective Tenderloin Housing Clinic empire is up 2000% the past couple decades and what has that gotten us? Why don’t other cities do things the way we do in the Tenderloin – why is SF so unique in this regard. Why doesn’t Randy Shaw lay out how his operations benefit […]
TweetAnd of course, get the Mercedes first, the better to enjoy your free parking space a stone’s throw from City Hall, you know, when you get the chance to move in. Thusly, as seen on McAllister, pulling into the PJs near Gough. Did I mention that this is a gated community? Yes, it is. One […]
TweetAll the deets, via Hoodline. When they were building this thing last year, I thought it was going to be a tall apartment building…
TweetHere’s your search: And here’s the kicker, in super small type: Reuters is not responsible for the content in this press release. Oh, so it’s a press release. OK. What the Walk for Life people are really touchy about are crowd estimates. At the beginning, they’d have realistic crowd estimates, then a few years […]
TweetHere’s what the signs look like around the corner: Good, because it was a Friday. Oh, here we go: But then you get a ticket, anyway. Whoops. Here’s what the signs actually say: (At least this street tree didn’t topple over and kill me, as street trees have killed and injured so many others.) I […]
