Consider 1st and Market here:
Sometimes they have four Parking Control Officers here, to do what, watch the lights turn green yellow red? Well actually I think they’re there to make sure frustrated commuters dont block the box of First and Market.

Still, a heck of a shot.

The answer will amaze you, or not:
This is the sun, as seen from a span of our troubled San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
It looked like the moon though.
That could be the troubled Star Princess, which should be norovirus-free these days. Let’s hope so. And if it’s not the Princess, well, let’s hope it’s norovirus-free as well…
