Frank ran into some trouble back in the 1980’s but I’ve never had any issues with him, after hundreds of encounters at area events over the decades.
If I had to guess, SHEPARD is for astronaut Alan Shepard and AIRCRAFT CARRIERS is a reference to the Russian-built Admiral Kuznetsov / Varyag / Liaoning and the like. I mean they’re sort of like aircraft carriers:
Expensify is paying the bills these days:
This guy from Quiznos sandwiches cut an ad deal with Frank a long time ago, and that put then-unknown Quiznos on the map, or so the story goes.
Leaving you with this – here he is from a decade back at the final Castro Halloween, when he encountered some dude dressed as Frank Chu. (And later that night, a kid from the projects shot nine people on Market near Noe and that was the end of Halloween in the Castro.)
This has been Frank Chu and His Signs, December 2016.
That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.
They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.
Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

And then you head to the website and it’s all, “As a LoveSac Member…”
As seen on Market somewhere:
And I’m like, “Heh, you said ‘member.'”
Oh, as seen on TV.
Bonus: Happy Fun Slander* via Yelp:
This store and brand is a huuuuge waste of money. The mark-up is ridiculous. It may cost them 50-75 TOPS to make these BEAN BAGS that are made with “Memory Foam” but they sell them for upwards to a thousand bucks. Not to mention the Manager is extremely obnoxious and the associates are purranas. They tell you the couches have a lifetime warranty when in fact each little piece to the couch has about a 2 year warranty and the only thing that’s lifetime is the wood frame… Umm.. that’ll do me a lot of good. Save your money and time and go somewhere else.
*Potentially, you never know. And unless you’re super sure about all the deets, you should always say defamation, as that’s the umbrella term for libel and slander, mas or menos.
Else you might soon be living in a ghost town…
But IDK. I’m pretty sure that Reno, NV doesn’t have dozens of public employees whose sole job is to say how great the local transit system is, the way our local SFMTA SFCTA is set up.
Anyway, there’s this:
And this, which looks like a BRT system:
I guess what I’m saying is that it appears that Reno’s transit system is run for Reno, as opposed to the employees of its transit system…
Hey, how many times do you think our SFCTA could possibly insult this pedestrian bridge over Geary at Webster in just one report? Well, 23 times,* by my count. Earlier, it seemed that the destruction of this bridge was vital for the success of the Geary BRT scheme, yet the SFCTA caved and now the bridge has a new lease on life, Geary BRT or no.
On It Goes…
*Mostly having to do with the ADA, but lots of things are grandfathered in, as the SFCTA well knows.
San Francisco Superior Court Judge Denies SFPOA Attempt to Block Use of Force Policy Implementation
San Francisco, CA – Supervisor Malia Cohen issued the following statement today regarding Judge Richard Ulmer’s denial of the San Francisco Police Officers Association’s (POA) request for a temporary restraining order to block implementation of the updated Use of Force policy for the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD):
“We are committed to supporting progressive, forward-thinking policies that provide necessary reform for SFPD, including giving the 20 year old Use of Force policy an update that brings it in line with 21st century policing strategies and our 21st century values as a city,” said Supervisor Cohen. “Judge Ulmer’s dismissal of the POA’s unnecessary lawsuit sends a clear signal that it is time for us to move on from this dispute over shooting at moving vehicles and using carotid restraint. The City will continue to work towards the highest caliber of reform that is in the best interest of both citizen and police safety. It is time for the POA to join that reform movement.”
The policy was passed by the San Francisco Police Commission last Wednesday, December 21, 2016. The lawsuit, filed by the POA last Tuesday, focused on two components of the new policy: the ban on using carotid restraint (a tactic that can slip into a fatal chokehold) and the more notorious restriction on shooting at moving vehicles.
Chief labor attorney Katie Porter defended the City’s right to update the policy with better practices that are in line with the recommendations of policing experts, such as the Department of Justice and President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Judge Ulmer agreed with the clearly written case law: setting a comprehensive Use of Force policy for SFPD is in the City’s scope of management decisions.”
