Prop L / Sit-Lie / Civil Sidewalks Update: The Reverend Billy at 1:00 PM Today – Praveen Madan’s Viewpoint – FTC’s Backyard

Monday, October 25th, 2010

First up comes the Reverend Billy, who plans to “exorcise” Proposition L today en La Mission. (Now, “Wheezy” wants me back at the Help Center so I can’t go, but this event should prove amusing.) Deets after the jump.

Next up, comes The BookSmith‘s Praveen Madan, who doesn’t like the sit / lie.

And here’s Scott James, who points out that “Without Cash, Sit/Lie Won’t Share Santa Cruz Program’s Success.”

And finally, let’s a take a look at a pro-Prop L rally from a while ago – it was held at FTC Skate Boarding, a close of neighbor of the aforementioned BookSmith book sto’.

This was the scene on Haight Street, with these people voicing opposition to L:

And here’s FTC owner Kent Uyehara a few door down, talking about why he’s supporting Civil Sidewalks, with SFPD Police Chief George Gascon in the background there:

Now I can’t tell you all the shenanigans planned for this rally by some of the anti-L people because I don’t know all the deets, but nothing occurred because FTC’s secured and ginormous backyard was the venue. See? Look, Michela Alioto-Pier was there:

And here’s Paul Henderson, of the office of District Attorney Kamala Harris:

And speaking of District 2, candidate for Supervisor Mark Farrell was on the scene as well:

You get to this private backyard via a tunnel between two buildings on  Haight Street – it’s amazing. (Come the Revolution, this thing will become Peoples Park West, no doubt.) Note old-school bathtub:

And, oh, here’s District 4 Supervisor Carmen Chu carrying water for Civil Sidewalks in the Middle / “Outer” Sunset (The Midset!) on Irving in the rain yesterday:

So that’s your Prop L / Sit-Lie / Civil Sidewalks Update.

The Rev. Billy, and more from Carmen, after the jump
