See? Dude’s in the Zone:
Remember this, from earlier this month?

What’s going to happen to all these bikes?”
Here’s the answer:
“Most will go to the Reno Bike Collective and other bike organizations, some will be repainted and added to the BRC Yellow Bike program.”
See how that works? You want to warn your fellow riders that there are cops handing out speeding tickets on Highway 37 (aka Sears Point Road) up there in the Great White North, so all you have to do is to tap your head in an exaggerated fashion when you see others going the opposite way.

I have no idea what happened in this incident here,* involving a serious head injury and a MUNI bus on Market Street, but check out Famous Akit‘s recent first-hand experiences of people who don’t know enough to stay behind the yellow line right here.
Da Law is the Da Law, both above and below ground, right?
Here’s how it works, peds, and this applies the world over, you need to stay behind the yellow line and leave that airspace free for people who are driving buses and taxis and cars and motorcycles and bicycles, and, I don’t know, skateboards and Segways.
Leave us review:
“Use X-Walk to Cross Street, Stay Behind Yellow Line, Use X-Walk to Cross Street, Stay Behind Yellow Line…”

If you spend any time at all driving any kind of vehicle up and down Market Steet, you’ll know that, for some reason, San Francisco pedestrians feel:
1. It’s their innate right to jaywalk 24/7/365; and
2. There’s no reason for them to actually look for oncoming traffic before jaywalking because of #1 (see above), their innate right to jaywalk 24/7/365
The biggest threat to any pedestrian is the pedestrian him or herself, obviously.
And that goes double for the 415, home of the Worst Pedestrians in the World.
*I’m thinking that the initial reports of this tragedy had more certainty over what occurred. The ped in this case might be 100% not at fault.
And here are some of their vids:

You know how to read, right? So have at it – I just found a nice link for you that I couldn’t find last month. Hai, doozo:
So, the “unit-cohesion” rationale, the concern about risking “the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability” and all the underlying foundation of Bill Clinton’s antediluvian, pre-Lewinsky Policy Concerning Homosexuality in the Armed Forces is out the window due to changing attitudes over the past couple of decades.
Or if all that .pdf is too much, here’s the elevator pitch.
(President Barack Obama will end the policy, someday, maybe.)
All the deets, after the jump.
