Chris Matthews To Obama: Sue Congress!

Occasionally Tweety has a decent idea. This is one. He says President Obama should sue Congress for failure to provide services.

A Query at the Lucky Super: “ARE YOU ARMY STRONG?” – Our US Military is Now Actively Recruiting in the 415 / 628

TweetI used to see these military recruiters on Davis Street like every day. They’d park their small American-made cars at the meters all day long, but they’d never pay, oh well.

The Unpopular SFMTA Used to Poll Neighbors Before Permanently Installing Traffic Circles, But Not Anymore – Why’s That?

TweetI’ll tell you why. It’s because the SFMTA dramatically overestimated its popularity and the popularity of traffic circles being plopped down in the middle of intersections. Isn’t that pathetic?
