Mayor Ed Lee Should Be Forced to Drive Around Solely in This Orange Vehicle Until the Giants Start Winning Again

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Hey, didn’t appointed Mayor Ed Lee inherit a World Champion baseball team?

Yes.

And didn’t he feel bummed out when nobody cared about him in DC when the San Francisco Giants met Obama a couple years back?

Yes.

And wasn’t that the reason he gave for purportedly changing his mind about running for Mayor and thereby, you know,  betray David Chiu and the unaware members of the BOS ‘n stuff?

Yes.

So why shouldn’t Ed Lee suffer when “his” team loses?

Just asking.

Actually, this ride is operated by a True Fan looking for parking on Masonic:

And for the benefit of Vanity Googler Christine Falvey, I’d like to say this:

Christine Falvey!

(Oh and check out Time Magazine online about stop and frisk this week. You might learn a thing or two, CV. Or not. Hey how’s that America’s Cup going for you?)

Just $5000!

Srsly.

Last seen on Fulton in what the pilot of this ride would almost certainly call the NoPA area.

Look for it there if you want to add this golf cart to your life.

Did the SFPD’s Park Station Spend Half a Day Just Taking Shopping Carts Away from Homeless People? Yes – Shift Log

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Well here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

“Our zero tolerance for quality of life violations is continuing. We are recovering many misappropriated shopping carts.”

So that’s why the SFPD’s Park Station spent half a day taking shopping carts away from homeless people

Check it, the log from January 29th, 2013:

Per commenter bd3517:

“According to the 1/24/13 Park Station Newsletter, in that week they recovered 11 shopping carts, describing it as misappropriation of property. An example entry from the report:‘Officer Diskin recovered a misappropriated shopping cart and admonished the culprit who had misappropriated it.’”

This is what it looks like.

Park Station didn’t confiscate shopping carts like this before.

I wonder what led to this policy…

Dude was saying how it was better that he didn’t have some kind of permit, else all of his stuff would gave been taken away instead of just his cart.

That’s how it works in the SFPD’s Park Police District, San Francisco, USA.

Here’s What Tonight’s World Series Viewing Party Will Look Like – But No Alcohol in Civic Center – Vote No on Prop B

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

You’re invited to come to Civic Center tonight to see Game Four of the World Series on a makeshift “Jumbotron.”

See you at 5:07 PM (or earlier, to get a good spot if you want to be able to actually see the action unobstructed.)

It’ll look like this, but probably with more Matt Cain than Timothy Leroy Lincecum on the screen:

The SFPD requests (more or less) that you transfer your alcohol to unmarked containers, thusly:

And, oh yes, speaking of the Rec and Park, Remember to Vote No on Proposition B (November 2012), the so-called “Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond”

Why?

Well, because Prop. B is too costly for San Francisco

And also because Reform is Needed at San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Department.

Also because area lawyer Philip Alan Ginsburg would consider passage of Prop B (November 2012) an endorsement of how he’s running the RPD.

That’s why.

Now, let’s hear from San Francisco Mayor Ron Conway,* after the jump. (Spoiler: He wants you to go to Chipotle’s and spend your money before you blow town.)

PS: The after party will be in the Mission District – spread the word, bring fireworks.

*Poor Sony. It appears that any television-like contraption bigger than 100 inches now gets the generic term “jumbotron.”

Oh well.

Displays similar to the Jumbotron include:

That’s how it goes on the Mean Streets of San Francisco, the innovation capital of the world, or something.

San Francisco’s Creme Brulee Cart is Powered by Delicious Gasoline: Chugga, Chugga, Chugga, Chugga, Chugga, Chugga…

Never seen a Yamaha generator before.

What, it costs $1000 for one of these things? (In that case, I think I’d secure it with a bike chain on the mean Streets of San Francisco…)

Chugga, Chugga, Chugga, Chugga, Chugga, Chugga…

Somebody get this man an AC hook-up, stat.
