The antidote to the “born and raised” crowd is the phrase Frisco.
Oh, you Nativists don’t like Frisco? All right, well I don’t like the mentality behind “born and raised” and ASFNATV, how’s that?
In closing, Frisco.
They don’t have an eight hour work day – it’s a little shorter than that, but every day they commute over Pacific Heights / Alamo Heights / Ignatius Heights / Cathedral Hill to find sweet sweet fruits outside of the Northeast Core of San Francisco.
Squawk squawk squawk all the way…
One isn’t sure how one wins a scholarship at the young age of four years old, but anyway.
If you won’t go to Marin, Marin will move to you, at the crossroads of Golden Gate and Masonic
Here’s the copy (that, I’ll tell you, I would have written differently, but anyway):
“Tour our school, learn about our academic program & meet our teachers! Fall 2016 applicants may begin scheduling events in September 2015. This event is intended for, but not limited to, our neighbors and those who are not eligible to join the admission events in the fall.”
I’ll tell you, there are other schools in town [cough, Presidio Knolls*] who’ll look you right in the eye and say, more or less, we don’t want you, we don’t want your kid, and we don’t want your money. Ouch.
(This whole process of getting your kid into a private school after rolling snake-eyes in the SFUSD “lottery” can be like joining a sorority, just saying. Welcome to San Francisco!)
Anyway, there’s an Open House, just saying.
*Located not in the Presidio, but in the flats South of the Slot, oh well. Also, not to be confused with Presidio Hill.
Now I say shadowy ’cause all you see coming out of this official SF department is “SF Environment,” which I suppose the SF Dept of the Environment people think looks better than “SF Dept of the Environment?” (Compare that with the SFPUC calling itself “SF Water” and the claim from at least one of its employees/contractors that the term PUC must surely apply to the CAPUC and not the SFPUC.) Moving on…
And I say cryptic because:
So let’s see here, instead of recycling all my crap what I actually do, apparently, is find a hole and throw it in there, and if everybody did that, then SF County would become a giant cube of garbage going all the way to the troposphere.
This sitch is what I want, and the SFDE wants me to reconsider.
I get it. It took me a while, but now I get it.
(One supposes this SFDE message goes down better than, say, a reckless SFMTA operator lecturing me about transportation safety, or Mayor Willie Brown lecturing me about lobbyist ethics…)
Severely taco’ed rear wheel and kinked seat stays:
But as you can see, there’s nothing left to harvest, so there’s nothing left to do but wait for SFGov or the Recology monopoly to haul it off.
Any harvestable parts were probably gone within a half-hour…
Your green dots show that it’s on somebody’s honeydew list:
SFGov will get to this, someday…
Well here you go, it’s BLOCK THE TECH COMMUNTE via IndyBay.
But read on to see the reply from the Teamsters.
On It Goes…
AN OPEN LETTER TO “BLOCK THE TECH COMMUTE”
We are shuttle bus drivers for bus companies who have contracts with Facebook, Apple, Google, eBay, and more. We are mostly people of color. We live in communities such as East and West Oakland and Bayview/Hunter Point. We share your concerns about gentrification. The Bay Area’s skyrocketing rents and housing prices have pushed many of us out to Antioch, Pittsburg, Tracy, Manteca, and even farther.
Your efforts are hurting us, not helping. We are on the front lines of fighting income inequality in the high tech industry by organizing with the Teamsters union. In the last few months, over 225 of us at two shuttle bus companies won union elections. Those of us who drive for Facebook just won a union contract that includes $9/hour average wage increases, fully paid company health care, 5 weeks paid vacation, sick days, a pension, and higher pay for those of us who work split shifts.
In March, you attacked a Loop Transportation/Facebook bus that one of us was driving at MacArthur BART. You attacked a union bus driver for a good employer who pays good wages and benefits. That did not help our cause – it hurt it.
We call on you to join our efforts to hold high tech accountable to workers. If you want to make the economy work for struggling Bay Area families, then help the other drivers organize a union with us. Help push for affordable housing. But please don’t stop our buses.
May Day is for workers. Respect the shuttle bus workers this May Day.
