Word on the Street: A Touching Plea to Those Who Break Car Windows – “Have Been Five Times in a Very Short Time”Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
Via San Francisco photographer James Corrigan:
You know back in the day a plain “NO RADIO” sign sufficed. Those were simpler times…
It’s exactly like this:
But Ed Lee has a plan for the West Coast Capital of Bike Theft.
Here it is, going to Brasil to lecture about how to lose billions on the Olympics? Well, maybe not, but Flying South To Rio must be more fun than doing the job six people appointed this longtime SFGov bureaucrat to do…
I’ve Never Seen a New-School LED Traffic Signal Not Working, But Here’s One – On Hayes Street – But It Got Fixed, Quickly, Via 311Thursday, February 11th, 2016
[Oh look, it’s me being “upbeat.” WARNING: Boredom ahead – feel free to click off somewhere else.]
I’ll tell you back in the day, traffic signals used to get busted all the time, cause incandescent bulbs would burn out. Then we got LED lights instead – a bunch of little points of light, so if one two go bad it’s no biggee because there are tons of others telling you to stop.
Of course it’s possible for the entire assembly to lose its power for other reasons, as here, on Hayes:
I’ve never seen this before. (This is the point of my post, sorry.) So I called 311 and (unlike the cases where low-level RPD workers beg me, literally beg me, to call 311 to get whatever issue right on up to the Big Guy in McLaren Lodge the next morning) I got through with a quickness and then I never noticed this busted signal again, like the next day.
IDK why 311 thinks I need some case # – it’s like my duty is extinguished as soon as I hang up. It’s on you guys now.
(I’ll tell you, one time I called the 911 for a missing manhole (personhole? I lack the proper vocabulary, obvs. In my day we called ’em “manhole covers” ’cause THAT WAS THE WAY WE LIKED IT) cover on Fell at Lyon in the Western Addition. And 911 was like, oh, we’ll contact DPW (with the implication being that that’s what I should have done instead) and I’m like, thinking to myself here, uh, no, if somebody on a moped on Fell runs over this giant hole, IT’S GOOD-NIGHT NURSE. Ergo, that’s the emergency.)
Anyway, the System works, sometimes…
