Well I suppose it’s really for adults, you know, legally!

Speaking of legalities, I suppose it’s actually sparkling wine and not champagne*
Kanpai, keiki, kanpai!
*You can sell “California Champagne” legally in the USA, but only the stuff from certain operators. If, for whatever reason, it ends up in France, they’ll call it counterfeit and then destroy it, oh well.
So, really, you should work extra hard instead of sitting on your ass waiting for Mayor Ed Lee or Police Chief Greg Suhr or D.A. George Gascon or Willie Brown or Rose Pak (just guessing on this one) or Randy Shaw or Supervisor Sean Elsbernd or Supervisor Mark Farrell or Travel San Francisco or Plan C or the Chamber of Commerce or the SFFD Union or the SFPD Union or the Union Square BID to call you up to tell you what to write in your next insipid column.
You are the Homer Simpson of Bay Area journalism.
Now, speaking of transit protests, here’s your old column from last month:
What’s this? Spin? Wishful thinking? A mistake? Do you believe everything the SFPD tells you right when they tell you? Even when you wrote this, the story of the .45 was highly questionable. And now, of course, it’s been proven wrong. Any correction there? Any misgivings? No? All right, moving on…
“So far the only group that has gotten satisfaction out of this is the small group of nihilists from Tuesday’s protest. News blogs said they were 150 strong, but I counted only about 80 of them gathered in front of the TV news trucks at Dolores Park.”
“News blogs?” Plural? Which ones? Were they, by chance quoting Chronicle reporter Marisa Lagos? Let’s see what she had to say:
So what’s your point, Nevius? That news blogs suck? That Marisa Lagos, somebody who is much smarter than you and somebody who works harder than you, is wrong? That you don’t want to insult Marisa Lagos so you’ll put blame on SFist or some other entity that you don’t like anyway? That you’re merely a part-time columnist who just blew into town so you’re entitled to do a half-assed job?
It’s got to be something like that.
Oh, BTW, Nev, do you consider yourself, “The Voice of Reason?” Really?
Now actually, the Tweets and whathaveyou that you’re relying on, Nev, consistently stated that “over9000″ protesters were expected at the Monday evening Anonymous happenings. The reason why that’s important is because you’re dealing with an Internet meme.
“The project is a collaboration between Schwarzenegger, branded entertainment firm A Squared Entertainment, comic books publisher Archie Comics and POW! Entertainment – the company headed by former Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee. The show is loosely based on Schwarzenegger’s recent political career, with an animated post-governor Arnie fighting crime and natural disasters while trying to “make it home for dinner every night”.
