You Want to See Some _Real_ Red Light Running? Here You Go, Viral Video From Geary and Gough

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Via Stanley Roberts of KRON-TV’s People Behaving Badly comes this “viral” (just two views so far, but the day is young) video.

The driver of this ride should have his/her license pulled until somebody in authoritah can figure out what went wrong:

But that’s not going happen, ’cause driving is a right, and not a privilege. In California, anyway.

I call this real red light running because it’s obvious that the errant driver entered the intersection on a red light (and I’m basically saying that the color of the light when a driver exits doesn’t matter and that peds need to wait for an intersection to clear whether or not they have a green. In California, anyway.) I don’t know if there was any bad behavior on the part of the ped(s).

The saving grace is that a lot of people who don’t know what they’re doing behind the wheel drive real slow. This is a possible drunkie…

Hey South San Francisco! Or Should I Say “Baden,” Your Real Name? Stop Trying to be Something You’re Not

Monday, November 8th, 2010

I don’t know, S.S.F. Your real name is Baden, right? So why do you try to attach yourself to San Francisco?

And you’re not even contigulous with us, you’re not connected to us – you’re about five miles south. So, using your absurd naming scheme as inspiration, what’s there to stop Inglewood, CA* from reincorporating as South Beverly Hills or South Bel Air? Wouldn’t that be equally as ridiculous?

How about SFO West as a new name on Sign Hill if you hate Baden so much? (And oh, BTW, Sign Hill is the very same mini-mountain that a United 747 almost crashed into back in 1998 because the Pilot in Command forgot what to do when an engine fails – he tried to compensate by turning with his hands instead of his feet – almost killed a bunch of people.)

And another thing, Baden, what’s this “THE INDUSTRIAL CITY” stuff? Your average employed resident is in the service sector, non?

Baden Baden Baden!
