Appointed Supervisor Katy Tang Goes Off on Twitter over “Supervisor slams brakes on L-Taraval changes”Friday, May 6th, 2016
Here you go:
And then came the blowback. First, from the long-time, SFG0v-connected, right-of-center SPUR:
So what does that mean? The hed’s sensationalistic – well why’s that? I don’t get it, man. Katy Tang’s certainly not jamming the pedal to the metal, right?
And what “betrays the truth?” Hey, you know what the phrase could mean IRL? It could mean that somebody’s unintentionally revealing something, like, hey man I didn’t steal a _red_ car and then park it in a barn down near the big cafe in La Honda. Anyway, that’s what that phrase could mean.

Also, “news” in quotes? OUCH. The ‘Xam isn’t news?
And here’s your stinger:
Oh, so all this is Twitter’s fault? I think that’s what I’m hearing.
Of course, our local transit activists won’t ever be happy, but I don’t see what’s wrong with the SFMTA changing Taraval. If I were Traffic Czar, I’d put in a mess of traffic lights west of 19th, to like 25th or so, but that’s just me. And if I were Traffic Czar, I wouldn’t care what local small business owners think – that’s what would make me a czar, the lack of pressure from the Taraval Historic District Business Owners Association, or whatever these people might call themselves.
Anyway, this is what you get with appointed Supervisors, IMO.

19th Avenue is the New Alternative to Poorly Designed and Administered Sunset Boulevard, Believe It Or NotWednesday, October 21st, 2015
Here it is, 19th Avenue in the Sunset / Parkside, with traffic going about 38-40 MPH through green light after green light in sections marked for 30 MPH:
Historically, Sunset has been the alternative to congested 19th, but things have changed lately. Of course, Sunset was a bad idea, a big wide boulevard with pointless medians up the yingyang. The question now is what to do about it.
