Our CW Nevius is at it again, celebrating a year of life in the Big City.
Leave us begin:
1. “The Board of Supervisors: …definitely a greater tone of civility and cooperation.”
Well, that’s what happened when we lost your petulant, petulant buddy Gavin Newsom, right?
2. “Twitter moves to Mid-Market: The symbolism cannot be overestimated.”
Uh, Twitter moving from Third and Mission to Tenth and Market, that’s your exciting thing, Nevius? Here’s a little backgrounder for you from Gerry Shih, you know, since the story starts before you moved to town:
“Alvin Dworman, the owner of a Market Street building proposed as the new headquarters for Twitter, gave sharply discounted office space in the same building to former Mayor Gavin Newsom’s campaign for lieutenant governor — a political contribution valued at more than $11,000, campaign finance records show.
“Weeks after the gift last fall, Newsom officials aided negotiations between Twitter and Dworman by offering the Internet company a payroll tax freeze as an incentive to move into Dworman’s building, a 1 million-square-foot art deco structure at 1355 Market St. once known as the San Francisco Mart.“
You’re celebrating this, huh Nevius?
Oh, and is windblown Tenth and Market any more blighted than ugly Third and Folsom? (Not to my knowledge…)
“3. North Beach Library”
This is number three? Boy, your fuel pump is sucking air already, Nev.
“4. Parkmerced development: … there was talk…”
Don’t worry too much about what people say about your buddy David Chiu – he’ll do fine. (BTW, anything that replaces the current Parkmerced, even a toxic waste dump, would be an improvement. You rent controllers, well, things will prolly work out for you. Nothing is Forever, of course…)
“5. Interim Mayor Ed Lee: Admit it, you’ve been surprised.”
Uh, no I won’t admit it. You see, Nev, you’re at the bottom of the intellectual pyramid and Edwin Lee is at the top. Don’t you acknowledge this? And don’t you come off as a little patronizing when you use your words this way? Yes you do.

And this is the point of your entire bit? Basically, this is what you’re saying:
Vote for Edwin Lee, Mayor of San Francisco.
How many times, in so many words, have you said this before? How many times will you say this again?
Face it Nevius, you’re a fraud. You’re extremely lucky to have your job.
Just saying, Bro.
Anyway, welcome to San Francisco….
