Like on Masonic Avenue, for instance:
Some other places too.
California allows us to make these calls on a case by case basis…
I don’t know, man:
And yes, that’s a real security guard, locked and loaded for bear.
And when I say infamous, I mean this flash mob thing from aught-ten.
And, oh yes, no photos allowed, of course.
I just don’t know, man…
You know, finally.
Perhaps the Bike Path To Nowhere will be sort of finished soon…
First I’ve noticed this one:
I like it better than this one, which, in any event, reminds me of the Deflate-gate cheaters…
So that’s 100% white guys. (Of “course,” our n=3 here, but even so. I mean, the people who take advantage of this golfing subsidy skew white, male, older, wealthier, right? I mean, am I wrong here? Disabuse me, Gentle Reader, if necessary.)
These are the only people I’ve ever seen at the white elephant known as Sharp Park, which, oddly, is operated by San Francisco even though it’s not even located in San Francisco.
So, why would Interim Mayor Ed Lee go against the Board of Supervisors, who wanted to sell off / give away / otherwise rid ourselves of this light-skinned loxodontine from Way Down In Pacifica? Well, middle-class welfare tends to be hard to eliminate.
And then there’s this constituency:
“City management of the golf course is handicapped by a sclerotic labor contract that has some employees earning six-figure salaries* for work that pays less than half of that on most golf courses.”
Oh well. I suppose our southernmost “run-down” golf course will continue to make us a national laughingstock.
And who’s going to pay for the $20-$30 million* worth of deferred work what this ball-and-chain needs?
I don’t know.
*Practically everything in Frisco is “sustainable” these these days. But what about Sharp Park? And then there’s this, from our drought-addled Year of the Lord 2015:
Dan Noyes: “How do you respond to this not being fixed for four years?”
Gavin Newsom’s Jogging Buddy / Political Booster / Lawyer: “Well, that’s probably not exactly accurate. There are a series of leaks in the system and we manage them as best we can.”
50,000 gallons? That’s a Cosco Busan bunker oil spill-worth of water daily. Oh well.
I think food manufacturers test-market a lot in Sac County ’cause it’s like a small snapshot of America, demographically speaking.
Anyway, here’s one voter:
(This was right by the freeway what has, about 80 miles away, a metal highway clean-up sign thanking “FRIENDS OF OBAMA” – I’ll have to try to get a shot of that sign the next time I pass through…)
…and here’s San Francisco – for this ride from Oakland with tabs expired less than six months, the cost is $117 + $117 + $117 + $117 + $117:
Do you think the SFMTA “makes money” from issuing citations and towing cars? Should it?
Why are the tickets $117 – why shouldn’t they be $517 or 1517?
