Hunger Games, Frisco-Style, Dog Division – President Snow’s Granddaughter and Pooch Delight the Swells of the Capitol

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Oh, I meant Willie Brown’s granddaughter, seen at  the recent “Haute Dog“ contest.

Meanwhile, the canines of District 12 have nothing to eat…

If only Katniss Barbie could put an end to the Dog Hunger Games.

Actually IRL, part of the reason why we’re going to get the Central Subway to Nowhere in Chinatown and why we’re not going to get public power anytime soon is so that Willie L. Brown Jr. can pass along ever more riches to his progeny by the time he kicks off. It’s so that WB’s granddaughter (and not yours!) can be seen giving the money from AECOM and PG&E and all the others to a “worthy” charity.

You might think that that’s the hallmark of a healthy democracy

And you might favor naming a span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge after him.

Or you might not.

“Telstar Logistics is Marginally Prepared!” – A Lecture about Earthquake Preparedness on YouTube from the State of CA

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Check it:

“In this week’s episode of Totally Unprepared, we visit the San Francisco home of Telstar Logistics founder, Todd Lappin, and his daughter Miel. Our host Ron Haralson quizes Todd on his earthquake preparedness, and takes he and Miel for a ride in the Big Shaker.”

All this is brought to you by the California Emergency Management Agency, the California Earthquake Authority, and the Alfred E. Alquist Seismic Safety Commission.

The Dubious Charms of This Leftover Website: http://mayorlee.com – “Edwin M Lee, Official Mayor of San Francisco

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Surprised that MayorLee.com is still up and running.

This one-page website gives me a headache, so I don’t have the patience to watch it to see if it loops its catchphrases in order or if it makes them appear randomly.

Anyway, take a look for yourself, below – you’ll get the idea of the attitude of the person(s) what put it up.

Here are some of the standouts:

Ed Lee is unrelated to Ex-Supervisor Ed Jew (now in federal prison)

Ed Lee is best buds with Willie Brown and Rose Pak

Ed Lee never hesitates to embarrass his daughters in public: Tania and Brianna, Daddy loves you XOXO

O.K. fine.

Run, Ed, Run: Wow, Take a Look at the Media Scrum at Today’s Mayor Ed Lee Campaign Announcement

Monday, August 8th, 2011

There he is, San Francisco Interim Mayor Ed Lee announcing his election campaign.

At this moment, he was dodging questions from The Bay Citizen’s Gerry Shih

Click to expand

The deets:

I ask Ed Lee if he’ll keep giving exclu. intvus/news/polls to chron. Nevius comes up after, sez “maybe when you work for a bigger place’ Heh”

And somebody got arrested because Mayor Lee is an “oath breaker?” Didn’t see that.  (Hope it wasn’t David Chiu!) Here are some peace officers outside of City Hall dealing with the aftermath of that little scuffle:

Here’s the audio of heckler Charles Kalish, addressing the Mayor: “Sir, are you going to step down?” Well, Chuck got carried away by six Sheriff’s deputies, I heard.

Anyway, it was over in a flash, with Ed journeying up to Room 200:

And, oh look, here’s a fresh statement from Senator Leland Yee:

“I have always said that whoever wants to run should run. I look forward to discussing the important issues facing our city with the interim mayor and finally seeing him at the candidate debates. While Ed Lee entering the race today is newsworthy, I am more focused on our campaign’s message to voters and continuing the dialogue we have had over the past 8 months. What I hear from the people of San Francisco is that we need to clean up City Hall and have a mayor who is independent of the power brokers. That is why I have released a 21-point ethics plan to restore the public trust and return city government to the people of our great city. Fighting for them is a promise I will keep as mayor.”

One of those “power brokers” referenced must certainly be Chinatown ward healer Rose Pak, but she wasn’t on the scene today in the basement of City Hall.

And here’s Board of Supervisors President David Chiu on the KQED News Fix Blog:

“Today there are many San Franciscans who are disappointed that Ed broke his promise,” he said.  “For many months Ed Lee told San Franciscans one thing but it’s clear now he’s going to do just the opposite.”

Ouch.

On It Goes…

Botox Mom Doesn’t Live in San Francisco, Despite “Published Reports” to the Contrary – Also, Nobody Ate My Hamster

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

[UPDATE: All right, well then tell me where. You need somebody to cross-examine the woman who gave birth eight years ago at 26 with a husband who was like 80, per the Sun? I can do that. Just show me where that suddenly-shy news hound is and I'll go ask her. (Oh, and I'll need some cash for her interview fee, if she demands one - hey, did she get anything from the Sun? Mmmmm...) And she's entered her daughter into beauty pageants, like plural? In San Francisco? In California? Those pageants that have no presence on the Internet in this day and age? And do beauty pageant stage moms really use botox, that's like a technique IRL?]

Let’s see here, does “Botox Mom” Kerry Campbell live in any of the 47 square miles of San Francisco?

Noooope!

And yet:

According to published reports, Campbell lived in Birmingham, England, and recently moved to San Francisco.”

Let’s see here, who published these reports?

The Sun:

Now, did somebody make a live hamster sandwich and then eat it in England?

Nope, the reporter made it up.

And yet, that’s a “published report”  in the Sun as well.

Oh well.

Earn $40 Per Hour at Stanford’s Study For Mom’s Who Have Had Depression And Who Have a Daughter Aged 10-14

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

This deal is kind of a rip-off because you and your kin have to visit Stanfoo three times and you might only get $80 for the both of you.

Seems as if MUNI might make more money on this affair than the participants.

(Maybe if they actually paid the moms/daughters a fair amount for their time, it would warp the study or something.)

Oh well.

“Moms and Daughters Wanted for Paid fMRI Brain Scan Research at Stanford

Are you a mother with a daughter who is 10-14 years old? Have you had episodes of depression during adulthood?

If so, you may be eligible to participate in a study of how moms and their children think and process emotional information. The study takes place in the Psychology Department at Stanford University. You and your daughter would participate in interviews, fill out questionnaires, and have a scan taken of your daughter’s brain.

Eligible mother-child pairs will receive $40/hour for their time. The study would last from 2-6 hours over the course of two or three visits. We will schedule the sessions around your availability (daytime, evenings, or weekends are all fine).

To be eligible for this study:
** you must have a daughter between the ages of 10-14
** you must be a US citizen or non-citizen with a Green Card
** you must read and speak English
** you should have no immediate plans to leave the Bay Area

If you would like to receive more information about this study, please email mood@psych.stanford.edu or call (650) 723-0804 to reach the study coordinator, Hannah Burley. Please refer to study #287. For general information about participant rights, contact 1-866-680-2906. Thank you.

A Unique Birds-Eye View of the Bay Bridge When Traffic is Jammed Due to a Hostage Crisis, The Way it is Right Now

Mayor Gavin and Jennifer Newsom Vote This Morning – Montana Tags Along – Provisional Ballots on Upper Terrace

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Mayor Gavin Newsom and wife Jennifer Siebel-Newsom cast their ballots this AM in a garage up in the  Upper Terrace neighborhood.

Montana tagged along to learn about the voting process:

Click to expand

This voter waited a bit for a chance to meet San Francisco royalty:

Plenty of Giants fans are still showing their colors today:

Appears as if the Newsoms are signed up to be vote-by-mailers, so they had to vote provisionally today, AFAIK. (I should be up-to-speed on this issue but I’m not. But logically, you can’t vote at the precinct and also by mail, so they let you vote and then check to see if your ballot arrives in the post.)

A Kennedy-esque scene at precinct 3808:

And all the while, dude here is just down the street watching the media circus travel back and forth.

(For some reason contractors are all over Upper Terrace these days, building and rebuilding houses everywhere.)

The Newsoms then took off for an 11-hour non-stop day.

They’ll most likely be rewarded with good news after 8:00 PM tonight…
