Rather theatrical, non?

And here’s the view down low:
And here’s the building next door, or at least this is how things used to be – I didn’t notice it last time I was up there…
Another Fixer-Upper in the Richmond: Golden Onion Domes of the Russian Orthodox Holy Virgin Cathedral Shrouded by ScaffoldingTuesday, February 23rd, 2016
The Outer Richmond District on a recent Dreaded Sunny Day:
Those domes have real gold on the outside, as real as the gold flakes on the highly regrettable Big 5-0 Sausage from our highly regrettable Bay Area Super Bowl 50.
Our Holy Virgin Cathedral at 6210 Geary will be back in shape in now time, I’m sure.
Sinner Parking, Weekly Sabbath – On the #2 Lane of Bush Street, Blocking Traffic – How NOT to Double-ParkWednesday, October 14th, 2015
These Sinners break at least two Parking Commandments each and every week:
Let’s read them, from TK
“DO NOT DOUBLE PARK:
a. Anywhere near an intersection.
b. Anywhere, at any time, on Fell, Oak, Gough, Franklin, Turk between Van Ness and Divisadero, any of those little tiny streets in Bernal Heights or those alleys in the Mission, or anywhere else you’re going to royally fuck up traffic.
As we can see here, assuming that you’re going to make and take illegal parking spaces every week, because you can, THOU SHALT NOT:
Put your cones so close to an intersection.
You see how that works?
Oh what’s that, the City knows what you’re doing but it’s afraid of blowback from your parishioners come Election Day? Well, Jim Jones got away with similar things, and worse, when he was pushing SFGov around decades ago.
Do you want to be like Jim Jones?
I’m thinkin’ Wiccan, but I could be wrong.
Cf. the star-less window below:
(Hey, Did you know that you can get a pentacle put on your tombstone at Arlington National Cemetery, you know, if you’re a Wiccan soldier?
Anyway, some tenant did an art project in the bustling Haight Ashbury, so passersby will be noticing it for the next hundred years prolly. This is a kind of immortality.
This really stands out to me, perhaps it does to you as well:
Of course it’s the giant cross atop Hill Davidson
Now I’ll ask you, does crime pay? Or did it pay back in aught-seven, when metal “recyclers” stole the hundred-something pound bronze plaque up there to sell for hundred-something dollars? IDK.
Anyway, some people are still mad how the cross and all that land up there got sold for just $26K in a sweetheart deal, but byegones.
I never understood how SFGov could have a cross up there when I first moved to town, but now it all seems kosher…
