TweetNuala Sawyer of Hoodline just snapped this photo in the Western Addition – all the deets here: Disturbing Footprints Leave Neighborhood Concerned Via Nuala Sawyer: (Now I’ll tell you, whenever I’ve leave bloody footprints, the trail generally, how do you say, attenuates as I move on.

TweetI suppose somebody is selling something here? Well, sure, the stop is less crowded, but at that point, the cable car itself is super crowded, right? And how many people are going to get off to make room for you, Gentle Reader? About zero, right? I cry foul. And the next stop up the hill? […]

TweetSo, you can be a sergeant working for our inefficient SFMTA? Well that’s news to me. but see those stripes? Mmmm, I guess “Parking and Traffic” calls its supervisors sergeants, so this guy isn’t SFPD or any kind of peace officer?

TweetYou know, back in the aughts, I was thinking that De Avila Elementary / Dudley Stone School was going to keep its name after it reopened to become a Chinese-language immersion school.

TweetAt first I thought Brocephus was simply standing in the crosswalk, but no, he was waiting for the green in the #2 lane of 7th Street. And off he goes, looking like an Apollo astronaut exploring the Moon: Forward, ever forward…
