This place might look good on the inside, but it’s in a high-crime area, oh well.
Oh AVA Building, will you ever win?

Oh Apple, will you ever win?
All right, let’s check in with some recent clients of San Francisco-based Singer Associates, Public Relations, Public Affairs.
But first, let’s review some vocab at the Wiki:
“A negative pregnant (sometimes called a pregnant denial) refers to a denial which implies its affirmative opposite by seeming to deny only a qualification of the allegation and not the allegation itself. For example, “I have never consumed cocaine while on duty” might imply that the person making the statement had consumed cocaine on other occasions, and was only denying that they had done so while on duty.”
See how that works? Let’s get to cases:
All right, if you add up the leather pants and the other stuff Mary Hayashi took out of that store in Union Square, I think the total is $2400-something.
And if you looked at the video of Gurbaksh Chahal, wouldn’t you see punches and kicks and whatever making up the total that the SFPD is alleging?
So what’s the point of all this? Is this what “crisis communications” is all about?
Of course I don’t know what Sam Singer or whoever says to earn all that money, but how about this instead for his numerous clients:
YOU ARE ONE SICK PUPPY – WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU? WHY DON’T YOU FESS UP AND WE’LL SEE ABOUT GETTING YOU THE MENTAL HELP YOU DESERVE?
How about that?
Anyway, it sure seems funny that both these convictereenos came up with the same “clever” kind of denial.
And what do you think, Gentle Reader, do you think that these crises were properly “managed?”
Let’s see here, who in San Francisco takes Randy Shaw seriously?
1. CW Nevius (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)
2. San Francisco Magazine (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)
I think that’s it. (Nobody in SFGov takes him seriously, not really.)
Now here’s the latest:
And here’s part of it:
“Lee’s ‘Neptune Shot’ (a planet far further from earth than the moon) is off to a good start.”
So, let’s get this straight. Being appointed Mayor of San Francisco for nine years (effectively), by breaking a promise about being only an “interim Mayor,” is something similar, in some way, to sending a manned mission to planet Neptune, an ice giant?
Does Randy Shaw think that the moon is a planet? I don’t think so, but I can’t tell for sure.
Is BeyondChron really “The Voice Of The Rest?” No, it’s the voice of a white government contractor who lives in a large house in the Berkeley hills.
Is BeyondChron really the “Best Local Website” per the SFBG? No.
Well then why has that tagline been displayed there for years and years? IDK
”‘I would not call it less pure at all. I would call it very high quality water,’ says SFPUC Assistant General Manager of Water”
And oh, here we go:
You see how that works? The groundwater sources that the SFPUC wants to provide to us don’t pass muster with the Feds as drinking water. So they want to cut it with Hetch Hetchy water and then, and only then, will it meet standards.
Our drinking water will become less pure, right? I mean, that’s the whole plan, that’s the what the SFPUC has decided to do to save money, for better or worse.
Comes now, SFPUC Assistant General Manager of Water Steve Ritchie to state: “I would not call it less pure at all.”
All right, well, the reason why SFGov can’t pay Steve Ritchie his inflated, six-figure salary with Monopoly money is because it doesn’t pass muster with the Feds as lawful currency. But what if we cut it with real money, so Steve Ritchie ends up with his salary being paid with 90% real money and 10% fake money?
I wouldn’t call that a pay cut at all. I would call that a “very high-quality” salary, one well above whatever our Federal government requires for the minimum wage.
What say you to that, Steve Ritchie?
