STARSKY HEARTS HUTCH: Another Bizarre Ad Campaign from Our SFMTA – But Let’s Read the Fine Print

February 23rd, 2017

Ah yes, yet another ad campaign from/for America’s Slowest Big-City Transit Agency, the MUNI. So this fare inspector is vouching for his partner – it’s kind of a Starsky and Hutch thing I figure.

Anyway, we’re getting down to basics here, identifying SFMTA employees as actual people, as opposed to them being monsters or whathaveyou.

And somehow its your job, Gentle Reader, to KEEPTHEMSAFE as they drive their cars home after an eight hour shift of handing out transit tickets to scofflaws such as CW Nevius.

And here’s the kicker – the disclaimer on the lower right states that this ad campaign what promotes the SFMTA and what’s from the SFMTA does not necessarily reflect the views of the SFMTA. Click to expand Gentle Reader. You’ll see.

“Retired” Right-of-Center Columnist CW Nevius REBORN as an “Emerging Solo Performer” – “Chuck” Nevius Plays The Marsh March 13th & 27th

February 23rd, 2017

His new one-man show at The Marsh inside of the Hotel Utah is called “COMING SOON*” – sounds like it could get a little blue.

So borderline septuagenarian CW emerges as friendly “Chuck,” who will be the cleanup hitter after three one-woman shows.

Let’s hope he hits a home run (and that he pays his MUNI fare on his way to the theatre.)

From MNF to Monday Night Marsh – WALSTIB. (I recommend the $100 per ticket reserved seating option for these shows, Gentle Reader.)

Break a leg, “Chuck.”

*TWSS!

McAllister Street Shantytown, One Block Away from Appointed Mayor Ed Lee’s City Hall

February 23rd, 2017

The blue structure is at McAllister Franklin and two-square block City Hall starts one block away at McAllister and Van Ness so that adds up to one block away in my book

Anyway, all this temporary sidewalk housing is on the north side of one block of McAllister between Gough and Franklin

Hey, what are the changes here asides from the long long lines?

Like, has the product changed? Like are labor-saving devices in use, to up production?

A far longer wait for lesser product – that’s the allegation. That’s how a longtime customer feels.

I know not, I’m just the messenger…

I suppose a giant propane truck, the kind you see all over West Marin, gets a pass from this area resident, as its driver prolly isn’t yelling to his bros stuff like, “Hey Bro! Did you see that…”
