Uh oh, this is new for 2011 at the annual Bay to Breakers street party:
“Installation of fencing along the portion of the race beside the Panhandle will begin at 12:01am on race day”
What will the fence be made of? Mmmmm….
Will it be an impenetrable paywall such that spectators (and non-spectators) won’t be able to get from the north side of Fell Street to the south side of Fell Street for hours and hours?
Did the residents sign off on this? Don’t think so. Appears as if the Great Fence of the 94117 is the brainchild of the co-sponsoring Western Addition / Inner Sunset NIMBY groups what are partially in charge of the show this year, you know, along with the “owner” of BtoB, that guy that supported anti-gay Proposition 8 even though he doesn’t live in California. Isn’t that funny?
Actually, most of the people who live near the Panhandle aren’t the rich, uptight, old, white, homeowners that the MSM loves to quote all the time.
Typical non-NIMBYs of the Panhandle area having a good time and drinking on a dreaded sunny day. See how non-uptight and non-judgmental they are?

Anyway, let’s hope the new fencing doesn’t kill anybody…
