One supposes that this is the punchline, but I missed the set-up:

Here’s a one-minute hit piece against Christina Olague from Ross Mirkarimi neighbor Ivory Madison:
Yes, she’s coming back for more.
You have the script so here my notes:
1. Your name is Ivory Madison for real? Oh. Really? How theatrical.
2. I think you mean former friend, right?
3. [Sanctimonious line reading but otherwise within the bounds of reality.]
4. I think I’m going to call bullshit on this one. That’s just your opinion, IM.
5. So you “contacted the police on her behalf” but without her permission? And in a maladroit fashion to boot, one might add. Like using your personal iPhone to do so, “anonymously.” You’re not that sharp, are you, IM?
6. [Sanctimonious line reading but otherwise within the bounds of reality.]
7. All right, I’ll bite. How does suspending Ross Mirkarimi protect victims of DV?
8. Uh Madison, I don’t think you can declare victory before a process ends, right? And it turns out that Christina Olague’s vote didn’t matter nohow. You understand that, right?
9. You didn’t want to get involved? Are you fucking serious – who’s going to believe that, Huntress?
10. Voters need to know what Olague did? Don’t they know already? Mmmm…
11. Is Ross Mirkarimi a “convicted batterer” like in real life? What does the word “batterer” mean? What does the word “batter” mean? Oh, what’s that, you didn’t actually have a chance to learn that in colledge because you thought a high school diploma would suffice when applying to Stanford Law? That might have worked for Daredevil Matt Murdock in the comix but I don’t think that kind of thing works IRL.
12. Um, I think Ross Mirkarimi is your Sheriff because your neighbors voted for him, like overwhelmingly, right? Didn’t you host a fundraiser for him?
13. Does Christina Olague really think “it’s OK to abuse your wife?” Any support at all for this, you know, outside of this particular vendetta? Wow.
Hey Ivory. You talk about law school so much, why not just sign up for the state bar exam and study for it? You could pass if you applied yourself.
It’s called The Ropes at Disney’s.

See if you wouldn’t consider this handbook evidence of a hostile work environment, you know, from the standpoint of this day and age. Note that women got twice as many sick days as men, but they weren’t allowed access to the rooftop employee lounge.
Also, back in the day, some dreamed of impractical shoes while others dreamed of dating those who dreamed of impractical shoes. (Oh, well, maybe that’s just like today – nothing’s changed on that score.)
No matter, the long-torsoed guy is quite the ogler.
And check it, Disney pioneered workplace casual dress – it was called “Businesslike Informality,” so neckties were banned.
*Located in San Francisco’s Presidio, not too far from the Golden Gate Bridge.
**I have a color checker that’s just like the one you can see in the corner there, except mine’s all crinkled up now. These things are expensive.
Lots of runners had beefed up strollers carrying a child or two, as here:

Get your results here. It’s not the biggest event in town, but it seemed to have a good turnout.
See you next year.
It’s on the craigslist, so it must be legit:
“Skoda Man Press Seeking Stories for Comic Book Guide to the Mission. San Francisco, February 24, 2010 — Skoda Man Press, an independent publishing company, is developing a comic book travel guide to San Francisco’s Mission District, and is currently seeking anecdotes about the Mission.
“We are looking at a wide range of stories that capture the spirit of the Mission,” said Skoda Man editor Lauren Davis. “We want to see everything from that epic night out to slice-of-life vignettes about the neighborhood. We’re looking for tales of great food, lazy days in the park, and strange encounters with eccentric people. We want people who live in and visit the Mission to be able to open the book and recognize their friends and neighbors.”
Sweet. It’ll be like that time Kramer sold his anecdotes to J Peterman for $750 (except that less money is involved).
Remember dooring that cyclist with your Mercedes S67 after parking in front of Farina? (Good times.) Throw in your account of ducking from automatic gunfire and that’s a graphic novelette right there:

“The editors will choose 20 anecdotes, and then contract with Bay Area sequential artists to create comic versions of the stories. The final book will provide a unique view of the Mission, seen through the eyes of various residents, visitors, and artists.
“Authors of the selected entries will receive $20 and a story credit, plus the opportunity to see their story brought to comic life. Writers should submit their detailed anecdotes to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 20th.
“Skoda Man Press is a San Francisco-based, independent publisher. The comic book guide to the Mission will be its first published title.”
