Just assuming on the millionaire part, but this very clean 80’s-style orthogonal Beemer has been garaged for decades, obvs, so that and the white hair suggests long-term bay area house ownership, and all that suggests millionaires to me…

Word on the Street, From Aging Millionaires in an Aging BMW Convertible: “BILLIONAIRES CAN’T BUY BERNIE” – Poor Hillary!Monday, March 28th, 2016
The Pro-Bernie Sanders “BernBus” (Metaphorically) Runs Out of Gas at the Fell Street DMV, San Francisco, California, USAMonday, March 21st, 2016
You know, metaphorically:
California doesn’t really have much input on presidential elections (and even this year, we participate more by giving money, rather than by voting). If only Bernie had had more fuel in the tank…

Mayor Ed Lee Decries Comparing the Super Bowl to the America’s Cup, But He Himself Does It – A Lot – ExamplesWednesday, January 27th, 2016
“I’ve heard some people try to compare the Super Bowl to the America’s Cup. That’s like comparing football to yachting, it doesn’t make sense”
So that’s the Party Line these days, Comrade. But let’s travel back in time to get a different take.
“We have proven we can successfully host the world’s biggest events, including the MLB World Series in 2010 and 2012, the America’s Cup in 2013 and Super Bowl 50 in 2016″
And on and on.
The report found that the increase in overall economic activity in San Francisco hosting the 34th America’s Cup could be on the order of $1.4 billion, almost three times the estimated impact of hosting the Super Bowl ($300-$500 million).
So, if the “East Coast Media,” that monolith, mocks us from New Yawk, DeeCee, and Bahstahn, well, perhaps we deserve it, non?
Your view of the Lafayette Hillside Memorial whilst speeding by on the 24:
Also, the more ppl become exposed to Airbnb, the less they like Airbnb – that’s what the Airbnb’s Prop F “victory” shows us.
Let’s see how 2016 shakes out in the STR industry – look for some rules to get passed that weren’t actually written by Airbnb itself. This leg. could pass by 6-5 or 8-3 or 11-0 or something like that. But it aint going to get vetoed, that’s for sure.
A Pro-Development “Takeover” of Our Local Sierra Club: When Playing the WOMEN CARD Reveals a JOKER, Named DonaldFriday, December 18th, 2015
Well, here’s your news:
“Sierra Club SF election and cyber bullying: this is our story, told in our own words.
But wait a sec – let’s hear more about this group, from our Paper of Record:
“One of its members, real estate agent Donald Dewsnup, is the engineer of the attempt to take over the executive committee. He joined the Sierra Club in February…”
(It’s A Man’s World, After All)
Now what’s the phrase again, cyber bullying? Let’s Google That! Let’s Google:
Ah, the first hit, from Disney VICE:
So, who’s the cyber bully now?
Hey, do I care if our Local Sierra Club Chapter goes pro-developer? Nope, not really. Not at all, actually.
But this campaign goes Beyond The Pale, so YELLOW CARDS for all.
And oh, these kinds of process complaints, this amount of whinging before the election has ended, make me think developers will have to try try agin to “take over” our Local Sierra Club Chapter.

Turns Out That You Can’t Win a District Election by Handing Out Cooking Oil in Chinatown – An Unforced ErrorFriday, November 13th, 2015
Here’s the scene some ten days after November Election Day, 2015:
You’d think Ron Conway would have enough money to clean up quickly after losing an election…
…but you’d be wrong.
Somebody should go out into the field and remove any last vestiges of this failure.
“Per witnesses, Conway said, “Well, I think we heard it pretty clear from the mayor. We’d better not have anybody here give to Aaron Peskin, or there’ll be problems with Ed Lee.” Conway then purportedly confided that he had contributed heavily to swamp David Campos’s 2014 assembly run, but feared that if he did the same for Christensen, it would bounce back on both of them. Conway then allegedly informed the assembled movers and shakers that they must pony up for Christensen. He would in turn make them whole by giving to their preferred causes.”
The thing is, he used to be a hobbit.
“Arguably the most significant development is his relationship with tech mogul Ron Conway, an early investor in Airbnb, the short-term vacation rental company. Sources say Lee and his staff have sometimes chafed at Conway’s repeated boasts about his influence with the mayor, but couldn’t refuse his money.”
