And when I say sort of, I mean like this, a rare scene with three of them together in a kind of electric skater / biker gang in the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park…

Is this Our Transportation Future?
Nothing goes unrecorded by the car dash cams of Taiwan:
TransAsia Airways Flight 235 looks to have lost a lot of power from its left engine. But assuming that the propeller blades of the failing engine were feathered to lessen drag, there’s no reason why a properly-loaded ATR 72 shouldn’t have been able to climb out to a safe altitude using the remaining engine.
There appears to be a lot of data recorded on this crash, so they mystery should be solved soon…
I’ll tell you, when you travel hither and yon and you tell people that you’re from San Francisco, what they’ll say in reply is that they visited the 415 and they want to know what kind of glue holds “those crazy rocks from Sausalito“ together.

Do you think the shot is now too jaundice, too yellow, too warm, too Simpsons-esque? Well, maybe, but I think the original shot is way too blue, too cool, too white, Sherman, so there you go.
Anyway, no matter what you make of Gerry’s adianoeta, the second shot is an improvement over the first, IMO.
Now I’m one to talk – I’m as Européen nordique as they come (excepting that my cheveux ain’t blonde and my yeux aint bleu). So, you know, I’m saying that I, too, lack the flava.
But in that way, I’m exactly like many institutions and organizations about town.
I’ll tell you, when you travel hither and yon and you tell people that you’re from San Francisco*, what they’ll say in reply is that they visited the 415 and they want to know what kind of glue holds “those crazy rocks from Sausalito” together.
