(Hey, does Willie have a heretofore unknown skin condition or something?)
Wonder if this is a one-time deal or a permanent, Mr. Gorbachev-tear-down-this-wall! kind of deal. You could say that these particular columns this week might lose their effectiveness while waiting to get published but that’s true pretty much all of the time anyway, right?
“Willie Brown has named 4 or 5 people as the “next San Francisco mayor” over the past several months–and none of them were Ed Lee. Yet today Willie writes a self-congratulory column boasting Ed Lee was “noted here 1st”! Yeah, sure, whatever you say, Willie. The truth is Willie wrote his prediction AFTER word had already started circulating thru San Francisco on local radio and other non-newspaper outlets about Ed Lee as next mayor.”
You know, I’m thinking the portrait photos used at the Chron are generally not meant to be seen 300 pixels wide. Speaking of former Mayors, check out this obscenely magenta “photo” / illustration / image the Chron uses:
(You’d be better off with a cell phone shot.*)
And speaking of the hair-gelled:
Anyway, the other news of the day is that frustrated San Francisco Police Chief George Gascon is a fully-licensed California attorney eligible to become our next District Attorney. Did not know that. (See below.) Thanks, M&R!
Just asking, bro.
Bar Number: 182345
Address: San Francisco Police Dept, 850 Bryant St #525, San Francisco, CA 94103
*I don’t know where to begin with the issues this image has. A longer lens was called for, for starters. And the hair, what’s up with that? And here’s a tidbit: “90% of all you need to know is that you can never let the yellow % fall below magenta % on anyone’s skin unless you’re trying to show sunburn. Your camera may capture images with less yellow than magenta in skin; unfortunately, unless you fix it they won’t print without customers complaining. Nor will magazines accept them for publication.”
