You want “leadership?” Here’s your leadership. Here’s the next Mayor of San Francisco, District Three Supervisor and President of the Board of Supervisors David Chiu, seen last night on his Trek electric bicycle heading from a regular Tuesday meeting at City Hall to an engagement in North Beach featuring una poca cucina dell’Italia.

What’s that, SFPD, the black SUV is necessary for “security” and whathaveyou? Maybe. Park it and keep it in a safe place until the next Big One, OK fine. I’m sure you could drive the thing to Panama or Montana and say that the trip was “necessary for security” as well – then people could laugh at you all the more.
What’s that, it’s raining? Fine, just take MUNI.
What’s that, what about the entourage? Well, have ‘em ride around in a rig like this. Just anything but the current vehicle.
Thank you, drive through.
*Ooh, you leaking!
