Roaring Through the Canyons of the 94111: San Francisco Bar Pilot Blows Three Months Salary on a Ferrari Convertible

Why do they get paid more than double or triple what other American bar pilots get paid? IDK.

Jerry Brown Goes After Those Responsible for the Cosco Busan Allision

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Indeed, who is responsible for the Cosco Busan Oil Spill? We’ll find out for sure sooner or later, but the big news today is the filing of a huge lawsuit by Attorney General Jerry Brown. Read the complaint for yourself, why don’t you? It’s pretty accessible. (These lawsuits are starting to pile up, what with City Attorney Dennis Herrera having already filed his suit on behalf of San Francisco.)

Today’s defendants include:

• Regal Stone Ltd.
• Fleet Management Ltd.
• Hanjin Shipping Co. Ltd.
• Synergy Management Services
• Synergy Marine Ltd.
• John J. Cota, San Francisco Bar Pilot
