As part of its punishment, it was barred from selling CA lottery tickets.
Well, looks like it’s back in the LOTTO biz now. See?
IDK, I don’t think California should even have a lottery.
Here’s shot of a 2000-something square foot knoll from a couple years back, in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle – keep off our expensive new turf, man is what RPD was saying with the temporary cyclone fencing:
Nice and green, huh? This was the color of the Mound when these volunteers installed a (fake) Rain Garden, seen on the other side of the benches:
But now here’s how things stand today betwixt the Panhandle Bathroom Building the and Panhandle Bike Path:
This brown mound will become a “planted area,” whatever that means:
Trot out any RPD spokesmodel with an explanation and I’ll have a counter for it. Hey, maybe the Panhandle shouldn’t be a lawn? Hey, maybe decisions about how to handle Our Current Drought shouldn’t be driven by the concerns of Area Realtors? Hey, maybe we should repave the Panhandle’s currently abysmal Oak-side walking path now and worry about installing a bunch of “irrigation” later? Or, hey, maybe just forget about irrigation and let Gaia take its course?
The thrown shoe on this ride was manifest, but if that’s been the only thing wrong with it the past week then hauling it off with this mobile crane seems a bit much…
In mitigation, they could have used an even more expensive medivac chopper to airlift it out of there…
I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.

So Prop 29 is about a $1-per-pack tax on cigarettes that we can vote on in a month? Well that’s news to me.
But look who’s against Prop 29 – it’s that famous convenience store what’s on Fulton and Masonic what can’t sell lottery tickets no mo owing to what some people, mind you, just some people, might possibly be tempted to label LOTTERY FRAUD.

Now here’s your Convenience Store Triad:
1. Alcohol sales to underage students from neighboring high schools and the University of San Francisco.
2. Cigarette sales.
3. Lottery ticket sales.
So, if you lose one leg of your triad, you’ve got to make sure not to lose the other two, that’s one conclusion you might draw…
Here’s what you do, you imagine this old guy on the left taking a picture of himself naked holding his wiener and then sexting it to you. Can you imagine?

I guess that’s what MSM-guy Chris Hansen dude recently did to some younger woman.* (That must have come as a surprise to Chris Hansen dude’s wife. Or not.)
Anyway, as you can see, Chris Hansen the sexting perv came to San Francisco recently.
Why? He came to punk unsuspecting store clerks who foolishly told their fake customers that their faked lottery tickets were losers only to try to cash the fake winning tickets in for themselves.
Check it, cold busted:
(And oh, I see, you give the $10,000 winning ticket to your gf for her to cash it in, you know, cause it might look a little suspicious if you, the Kwik-E-Mart owner/clerk, yourself did it? Wow, that’s using your noodle. Or not.)
I’m sorry, why do we even have a lottery in California? Seems like a magnet for fraud and other unhealthy activities, just saying.
And like your lottery ticket money goes to pay the State of California to go around and bust store clerks? Seems kind of pointless to me.
All right, signing off from the stoop of the Fulton Food Shop, kitty corner from Chris Hansen’s stand-up in front of the Fulton Street Lucky a few weeks back.
I didn’t see him touch his wiener or nothing…
**Sorry, you can’t buy lotto tickets at these stores anymore as the State of CA no longer deals with them.
