That was the windup, now here’s the pitch.
They look almost ready to open at this star-crossed building what’s been shut down for years and years, IIRC.
Oh, the Seattle location has surprisingly low Yelp rating, IMO.

“LEGION CORPORATION” Spotted in the Twitterloin – Using SFChron/SFGate to Spread Your Message in a Post-CWNevius WorldTuesday, December 6th, 2016
It’s sort of funny how a man who likes to threaten to sue the San Francisco Chronicle ended up with this, this thing placed(?) on SFGate to praise him.
(And now with CWNevius gone, how else will this character get such laudatory coverage, one wonders.)
Anywho, this is the LEGION CORPORATION what paid for the above to appear on SFGate, ostensibly.
As seen Golden Gate Ave n the northern part of the taxpayer-funded Twitterloin Enterprise Zone…
Now, last I heard, Randy Shaw was mulling over suing the San Francisco Chronicle over something to do with this bit here, but now SFGate is hosting “sponsored” stuff like the above? (What’s that – SFGate aint the Chronicle? Well, yes and no. It sure’s hell looks like the Chron. Moving on, “Beyond the Chron”…)
To this, Comrades. The LEGION CORPORATION. Achtung, baby!
WTF to that.
And then we’re supposed to click on About Sponsored Stories? IDTS, Brother. That’s just what The Man wants me to do. So IDK what’s on that link.
Now let’s do some reading:
“There are so many people that have stood at the forefront freeing these neighborhoods and their citizens from crime and blight like Randy Shaw. Randy Shaw is an ikon in the development of the Tenderloin. He has practiced law in the protection of the Tenderloin and its residents, developed housing as Executive Director of the Tenderloin Housing, co-founded Uptown Tenderloin, Inc., a nonprofit organization that helped create of the Uptown Tenderloin Historic District in 2009 the Tenderloin Museum.”
Is this a translation from another language? Sure seems that way. And the kicker is that he/she/they spelled icon with a “k!”
I don’t know what the hell’s going on here. Who will set it straight/ this Watergate?
Specifically, I wanna know who wrote this, and why.
That’s the important part, the why.
(‘Cause you can’t have a real blog page without links and a Comments section, right?)
I’ll tell you, Gentle Reader, the Tenderloin hasn’t changed a bit since the 1980’s. Sure, it used to have a Sizzler Family Restaurant with All You Can Eat salad bar, but now it don’t, big deal. Fundamentally, not much has changed, at all.
All right, I dare anybody to read the whole* of HOW A HANDFUL OF BUSINESS OWNERS ARE HELPING THE TENDERLOIN.
And then explain it to me, like I’m a Golden Retriever.
‘Cause I aint never seen this.
*I just skimmed this one, using the Control F to get to what I think the nuf graf is. Hey, how many people would actually read this, this thing? How many real readers did it have? Who’s the target, Airbnbers from Italy staying in the Twitterloin? Or Japanese tourists suckered into staying at a bedbug hotel “near Union Square” for $299 a night? And how much did it cost to post? And how much per actual Reader? $10 a Reader? $100 a Reader? Does it make any sense at all to do this kind of thing? Or maybe there’s some other point to this exercise? I gots to know!
Look for this Airbus 330 just after 9:00 AM, over the Financh, heading west with a little south thrown in – that’s what you can see lately:
Now back in the day, people told me, “Don’t fly Hawaiian.” But geez, zero passenger deaths over the years and decades. Hawaiian is a winner airline and this jet, an Airbus 330-200 widebody, is a winner aircraft – better all around than any stretched-out Boeing 757 narrowbody that, say United, might choose to get you to the 808 State…
And another in the Financh:
