Does our giant SFMTA/SFGov operate giant Navistar International trucks painted yellow? Apparently.

Now, there are bigger classical domes in the Old World, sure. And there are bigger domes in the New World, but they isn’t classical, they’re like football stadia ‘n stuff.
So does that mean it’s taller than the U.S. Capitol Building? Yes it does. On purpose.
If you want to see something gothicker and bigger, you’ll have to head to Europe.
That’s your San Francisco City Hall
It’s Now Safer to Raise and Lower Flags on Top of City Hall – I Guess – Just Look at This Ugly WalkwayThursday, June 23rd, 2016
First, things were all like this atop City Hall, the highest* classical dome** in the Western*** Hemisphere.
But now they’re like this, with a more prominent walkway up there:
Safety First, I s’pose, consarn it. Really jumps out at you is what I’m saying…
*Yes, higher than the U.S. Capitol Building Back East. By design. Just ever so slightly. On purpose.
**So yes, it’s lower than the Superdome football stadium and whatnot.
***And yes, the Great Countries of Europe have domes what are bigger and older. They were the ones we copied from. Yet still, we have the Biggest Classical Dome in the New World, so we have that going for us…
Here’s* the problem, maybe…
…and here’s the solution, maybe not?
*This looked like casing to me.
It Begins: SFMTA Rolls Over Irate Neighbors, Installs Corporate Shuttle Bus Depot on Fell Near MasonicTuesday, May 24th, 2016
Here’s the background and here’s what the first day of terminal operation looked like yesterday:
I didn’t see it in operation, but I did see a Nest* (wherever that is) Bus heading away from this area this AM so maybe this 116 feet will be a nest for Nest, and others. Who uses this terminal is a secret, kept by our incompetent SFMTA, for some reason.
I think all these pissed-off people would have needed the relevant city Supervisor to go to bat for them against the SFMTA. I suppose that didn’t happen.
(I’ll tell you, one block away on Hayes, there’s a bus stop for the #21 what’s nine (9) seconds away from another bus stop for the same line. Our weak-willed SFMTA wanted to get rid of one of the stops but a while back but a local bidness owner hired on craigslist to get a “grass-roots” campaign going to sway our swayable Supervisor London Breed. So that’s democracy in action, or not, depending on how you look at it.)
Anyway, the signs say that all this will expire on May 27th, 2016, so we’ll just have to wait and see what the SFMTA wants to do next. Perhaps they’ll install permanent signs soon, IDK…
*Yeah, I need me an expensive Nest thermostat for my 100 year old radiators – I’m sure that would work out real good.
A Tattoo for Your Car? – This City Car Share Chevy Volt Doesn’t Know It’s a Gas-Powered Hybrid, But Nice Kitty!Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
As seen in Civic Center:
Hey, does this ride have a fuel tank? Yes it do. 9.3 gallons worth.
Hey, does this ride have a tailpipe? Yes it do again. But it’s hidden away, the better to fool you.
Does the artist what tagged this car know all this?
Anyway, if this ride is an “EV,” then so is craig Newmark’s old-school ’99 Prius, just saying…
