I Love Big Brother: Check Out This Orwellian Video from BART on the YouTube – What’s BARTtv?

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Here it is, direct from BART:

BART Customers React to Protest Plans

Highlights:

“There are a multitude of groups … flying in from all over the country. They want to do surprise attacks, basically, on BART riders.”

“…but for outsiders to come in…”

“And if that happens, would you be mad at BART or the protesters?”

“At the San Francisco Embarcadero Station, Mark Jones* reporting, for BARTtv.”

(Boy, this one is more maudlin than a CW Nevius column.)

So really, BART,  there were all these people flying in from all over the country to do a protest at the Civic Center station last Thursday?

Really?

Monday, August 17th, 2009

The Pakistani Association of San Francisco Bay Area(PASF) threw a huge party yesterday to celebrate Pakistan Independence Day. Civic Center was all packed up with partying people.

Like this singer. Kind of got a Bono / U2 feel out of him.

Sunset Scavenger vs. Fixie Bike Rider at Golden Gate and Polk

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

Here’s the scene this morning at around 7:00 AM at the intersection of Polk and Golden Gate in the Civic Center/Tendeloin/Polk Gulch area near City Hall – the aftermath of a collision between a Sunset Golden Gate Debris Box transporter and a green, braked-equipped Masi single-speed bike rider. The cyclist had a helmet and her bike light was still flashing.

It’s hard to say who was at fault at this point. This is one of the “routine” accidents” we have in the City that you don’t hear about unless somebody dies. Are bike accidents increasing in San Francisco? Seems that way.

San Francisco Fire Department Wharf Rats on the job:

Here’s wishing a speedy recovery for the cyclist.
