The Great Schlep: Students at the University of San Francisco Have To Bend Over Backwards to Move In and Move OutThursday, June 11th, 2015
This is just one part of The Trek – can you see them all, laboring their borrowed carts up Lone Mountain going to where – a moving van somewhere near Geary in the Inner Richmond?
Come to think of it, USF goes out of its way to avoid pissing off its neighbors on Moving Days
I guess that’s the price you gotta pay when you’re an Urban University…
The “Innovation Capital of the World” Uses Old-School Tech: Leaning Over with a Piece of Chalk at the End of a StickFriday, May 15th, 2015
There are pros and cons, of course, to using a stick to chalk-mark car tyres and then coming back two or three hours later to see if the car has moved away, in accordance with the 415’s infamous Residential Parking Permit Program.
Here’s what it looks like:
An actual world capital of innovation would employ GPS and license plate scanners, these days, right?
Anyway, on the pro side, this method works, sort of. What some people do to stick it to the man is to rub off the chalk marks to buy a few more hours of free parking, until the next round of SFMTA marking and checking, but that’s agin the rules – you could get in trouble for that, one supposes.
On the con side, our PCO’s are routinely Bending Over with Piece of Chalk at the End of a Stick. The reason why it costs our SFMTA an excessive amount of money to run the RPP program is because there’s no market discipline at work here, there’s no incentive for the SFMTA to save money because of how CA state law works, oh well.
Anyway, just because your Interim Mayor says that your town is the “Innovation Capital of the World” doesn’t necessarily mean that your town is actually the “Innovation Capital of the World”
White Over Raspberry – The Smartest-Looking GO-4 Intercepter Three-Wheeler in Town – But Is This Legal?Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015
Can you legally perpendicular park your Frisco Family Car in a parallel parking area?
I know not.
This kind of thing is agin the rules if you used a four-wheeled SmartCar, but SF could have special rules for three wheelers…
If I were the Super Pretzel pushcart people on Market at the cable car turnaround, I’d push these carts somewhere else before the lengthy loading and unloading process:
But these people don’t care – on they go with lifting and the lowering, on they go as westbound traffic backs up behind them…
Mayor Ed Lee Should Be Forced to Drive Around Solely in This Orange Vehicle Until the Giants Start Winning AgainMonday, July 29th, 2013
Hey, didn’t appointed Mayor Ed Lee inherit a World Champion baseball team?
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?
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?
So why shouldn’t Ed Lee suffer when “his” team loses?
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:
(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?)
