SFGov Embraces the Term UNITY As If We Were North Korea – HANC Recycling —> “CommUNITY Gardens?” – And “Unity Plaza?”

What’s this, GOLDEN GATE PARK COMMUNITY GARDENS?

Is this a joke?

Gentle Reader, check out this recent bit from Calvin Welch in Tim Redmond’s 48 Hills to see how much UNITY there was in getting rid of the recycling center.

So that’s STRIKE ONE.

And what of this, also in the news yesterday:

“Unity Plaza” brings “communities and city leaders together under one roof.” The Unity Plaza, named through a partnership with the community…

So it’ll be something like, “Meet me at Unity Plaza, where San Franciscans and our City Family are as One, Comrade.” (And then Comrade Two will be all, “Oh, you mean Balboa BART? C U THERE, All Hail Our Dear Leader.”)

And there’s your STRIKE TWO.

That’s it, it’s TWO STRIKES AND YOU ARE OUT.

Let me tell you, if your political faction has 55%-60% of the electorate, then that’s like the OPPOSITE of UNITY, in’nt?

END OF  LINE.

Down the Memory Hole – Anti-Gavin Newsom Blog Post Disappears

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Is it possible for a blog post to just disappear in This Day and Age?

Who knows why Cameron Scott’s Thin Green Line bit from yesterday’s SFGate left us. But it went a little something like this: 

“It’s something transit experts imply but never say: The mayor is the problem. Despite his big talk on green efforts, Gavin Newsom does not support public transit when you get right down to it. Two new reports today make that abundantly clear. Last week’s SFWeekly article analyzing Muni’s…”

This off-message message is all gone, and some are compelled to, not unreasonably,  jump to conclusions.  

Anyway, here’s a little more from yesterday’s “Newsom: Not pro-transit

That’s the best I can do.

How about you? Can you find a cached version of the entire bit?

I defy you to try.

Oh! So that’s how it works. I see you what you’re doing there, Google. The N-Judah Chronicles chronicles the story of the cache.

And here are the three other most offensive points from the bit:

“Korean Comics: A Society Through Small Frames” Coming to the Main Library March 13th

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Here’s what’s coming up at your free San Francisco Public Library:

“Korean Comics: A Society Through Small Frames – Exhibition in the Library’s Jewett Gallery, March 13th – June 13th, 2010. San Francisco Public Library is pleased to present, Korean Comics: A Society Through Small Frames, an exhibition of 83 framed works by 21 of Korea’s most talented cartoonists drawn over a period of four decades, on view March 13–June 13 in the Jewett Gallery at the Main Library, 100 Larkin St.”

O.K. then.

I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. Oh, wait a second, this is the cover of North Korea’s version of Animal Farm. I forget which one is the Queen Bee, is it the Dear Leader, the Great Leader? One of them, anyway. Good times:
