The Devil Dogs of Corona Heights: A Standard Poodle

Friday, January 9th, 2015


Corona Heights dogs be OOC, out-of-control, and I’m not even talking about all the poop being left around by thoughtless owners / guardians.

The owner of this pooch is probably oblivious, oh well. But I’ll tell you, at least one person in this photo was temporarily horrified by the poodle. Man, she looked pissed. And for good reason.

If this is the way Corona Heights Park is operating, then something is wrong with Corona Heights Park.

Or, in other words:

“The dog people own this park; it’s not for kids or anyone else who doesn’t enjoy seeing leash laws broken, dog piss everywhere, and taking the chance that one might bite your kid.”

The Trouble with Moving to a Place on MUSEUM WAY and then Getting Testy During THE MUSEUM’s Busiest Four Hours of the Year

Monday, October 27th, 2014

The problem with doing that is that you end up looking like this noticeably-irritated turkey in the Nissan:


Cf. living on AIRPORT DRIVE and complaining about airplane noise.

Cf. living on Lombard Street and complaining about how all those tourists make you not want to go on living any more…

Those are the more interesting buildings I recognize.

Anyway, it’s your Corona Heights Park, so enjoy – get up there like these two and just take in the Financh as if it were the biggest HDTV in the world:

An Everyday Vehicular Pas de Deux in San Francisco’s Corona Heights

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

When the 37 Corbett MUNI bus cruises through Corona Heights, everybody else needs to get out of the way. If not, you end up in this kind of minor traffic jam, a slow-motion vehicular pas de deux with a communal effort to head off/mitigate the incipient collision.

How can you tell this scene is from 2009?

The WhyIslam? bus ad;

The ubiquitous (#1 luxury vehicle in America these days) Toyota Harrier / Lexus RX “tall Camry”, crossover SUV, avec tiresome “gold pack” badges; and 

The green BioDiesel sticker on the bus

There’s your 2009 right there.

(Ir)regardless, this starfish-like intersection isn’t the problem – it’s the narrow streets combined with parallel parking, that’s the problem.

Please be patient when visiting…
