Do you you think the rise of selfie photos suggests something negative about “today’s generation?”

Word on the Street: The Aggressive Pit Bull Lady of Alamo Square – “With One Word, My Dogs Could Kill You”

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Allegation:

Two pit bulls came rushing up to him on the east side, and when our walker asked the owner to call the dogs away, she became extremely aggressive and told our walker, “With one word, my dogs could kill you.”

Sounds credible to me.

And here’s your takeaway:

If you see this woman & her dogs, it’s best to walk away. She clearly has no interest in being a good neighbor.

Aggressive dog owners, you might think that you have a friend in Supervisor Scott Wiener and if you all keep giving him money, you’re probably correct, but not everybody in town is a weak-willed politician. A lot of people in town don’t like you.

So straighten up and fly right, why not?

Seattle Had Its Spoon Man, But San Francisco Had Pigeon Man – Remembering Civic Center’s #1 Pigeon-Feeder of 2012

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Forget about superwellknown Spoon Man from two decades back.

Just two years ago, San Francisco had its own icon – Pigeon Man.

All the pigeons of Civic Center knew Pigeon Man was coming – they’d walk with him down Larkin, Pied Piper-style. See?

They used the crosswalk better than the average San Francisco pedestrian:

Here was the reward, some kind of grain, like what the Road Runner used to peck at:

Hurray!

Monomaniacal Single-Issue Voting Run Amok: “DogPAC: I Have a Dog and I Vote!”

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

I’ll tell you, Supervisor Scott Wiener, for one, lives in fear of running afoul of these people, the very same people who vandalize the “no dogs allowed” signs our Feds put up on certain parts of our Federal lands:

Our Feds wonder why Bay Aryans can’t abide the rules the rest of America accepts with no trouble at all…

So look out, little Western Snow Plover. The dog pacs of the world say that you’re nothing special and that, in fact, you don’t even exist – they say there’s no such thing as a Western plover anything. OK fine.

As seen at Ocean Beach near Taraval, 1200mm focal length:

Good luck, little plover.
