“New sign in the doorway of Marinello’s School of Beauty in Mid Market, San Francisco, where all this takes place“
“Help us have four more years of this. Vote for
Randy Shaw Jane Kim for District 6 Supervisor in San Francisco.”
Here it is:
The long street on the left side is Van Ness, the big diagonal is Market and the part shooting off down and to the right is 6th Street.
Anyway, this is what people mean when they refer to the Tenderloin:
I can’t think of a thing that this map is missing.
What an excellent map!
Here’s some graffiti placed on the Bay Bridge by people who didn’t work hard enough to ensure that it was built correctly for a good price.
See it? It’s says, “Mike Sucks Big Titties…” Hilarious:
See? It says “Chocolate Starfish.”
Even more hilarious.
In other news, California High Speed Rail will never be “high speed” – it will be medium speed at best.
“When a friend of Sheryl Sandberg’s was looking for a stock image of a female plumber, all she found online were women posing in lingerie and clutching wrenches.”
Mmmm. What if I tried to find stock images of a “female plumber?” Here, take a look, no foolsies.
Well, wrenches, sure, that’s the whole point. Holding a plumber’s wrench = plumber, right?
But “posing in lingerie?” Not so much.
In fact not at all! But this one is close, I ‘spose:
Gentle Reader, I’ll make the impolite suggestion that billionaire* Sheryl Sandberg’s conveniently-unidentified millionaire* friend doesn’t know what she* is doing when she hunts for images online.
Why not sell books and lead by NOT (re)telling lies/stories that don’t add up?
END OF LINE.
I guess the Epoch News does real news now? News to me. Anyway:
“Another thing Elizabeth Stampe would like to see is “road diets.’ ”They take a road that’s kind of fat, like Sixth Street, which has a lot of lanes, and they reduce the number of travel lanes,’ Stampe said.”
This guy is still out there.
He is the Bringer of Earworms.
No pay but the perks just might be out of this world…

Hey, let’s take measure of the “world-class” image of our “world-class” Mayor’s “world-class” City:
“OH: “In no other place in America would you see so many crack pipes between Nordstoms and Bloomingdales.” A DC-er’s take on #sanfrancisco :)”
I’ll tell you, I don’t think I have ever seen the flames of a crackpipe IRL, but Bluoz has, certainly.
“Congratulations to Mayor Ed Lee for winning the mayor’s race.

4 more years of this – yay,
Yep, he ‘get’s it done’ all right”

Let’s see here, can you spot the PG&E Tower of our Golden Gate Bridge in the lower left? Good, now check out vertical elements of our old and new San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridges.
Not much has changed with the poorly-managed 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake-related fix-up job that’s due to finish up sometime this decade, so there’s no reason to think that America isn’t still laughing at us.
Of course you should try to not to stare at the new ornamental tower when you are cruising by on the temporary S-curve. Safety First, right? Anyway, it’s a little higher now. See?

And, of course, Mike still sucks big titties.
That’s your Bay Bridge update for 2011.
