Actually, this van was parked on Divisadero at a place the real estate ladies now call NoPA, so I guess you are changing, Western A.

Gee, what’s wrong with appointed Supervisor Christina Olague, you know, if she can’t even get endorsed by her own Assemblymember?
Anyway, here’s the news of the day:
“Assemblymember Tom Ammiano Endorses John Rizzo for District 5 Supervisor
SAN FRANCISCO — Longtime San Francisco activist and California Assemblymember Tom Ammiano has endorsed John Rizzo for District 5 Supervisor.
Ammiano has served San Francisco for three decades as a teacher, civil rights leader, SF School Board President, Supervisor, and Assembymember. He cited Rizzo’s leadership experience, both with City College and as a Sierra Club leader, as well as his commitment to finding creative and effective solutions to today’s biggest problems.
“In the years I’ve known John Rizzo, he has proven his dedication to public education, a greener San Francisco, and civil rights,” said Ammiano. “He’ll bring the kind of progressive policy solutions we need to City Hall, and has the experience to get them passed.”
“I am honored by Assemblymember Ammiano’s endorsement,” said Rizzo. “We have always shared values on issues such as education and the environment and I’m proud that he supports my bid for Supervisor.”
The endorsement comes at a great time for Rizzo’s campaign, which has been building momentum through an intensive field program that has seen campaigners on the ground in the District every day.
John Rizzo is also endorsed by Senator Leland Yee, Supervisor Eric Mar, the Sierra Club, and other elected officials and community and business leaders.
John Rizzo was twice elected to the Community College Board and is the former chair of the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club. He has a proven track record as an effective leader in government and education, in protecting the environment, parks and Muni, and in bringing jobs to San Francisco. Some of his accomplishments include spearheading adoption of the GoSolarSF program which quadrupled the city’s solar capacity and created hundreds of jobs, and creating a “local hire” initiative at City College, which ensures that San Franciscans are put to work on taxpayer-funded construction projects.
As a 27-year resident of District 5, John raised his daughter through San Francisco public schools and is a dedicated MUNI rider. He is committed to fighting for our neighborhoods, our schools, and our city.
So, add that to this list of Endorsements:
The Sierra Club
Leland Yee, State Senator
Eric Mar, Supervisor
Jake McGoldrick, Former Supervisor
Milton Marks, Trustee, College Board
Natalie Berg, Trustee, College Board
Chris Jackson, Trustee, College Board

Saturday night crime in the DivCo:
“I obviously locked/alarmed/blahblah’d it, but am still feeling very upset about it. The ipad was a gift from my father and not something I could dream about affording on my own. AND, more frustratingly, the dude who took it had just hit on me like five minutes beforehand. I don’t know. I guess if anyone sees an ipad with a TARDIS background on craigslist, PM me? Whatever.”
“I was outbound, so I was right in front of the Honeybaked ham store. I honestly pretty rarely use my ipad in public, but it was the end of a very long day, the bus said it was going to take 30+ minutes, and the dude who robbed me had hit on like ten minutes prior to it happening (needless to say, I was charmed), so I didn’t really expect him to, you know. Punch me.”
Oh, here’s one.

Keep on chasing those rainbows, area real estate interests.
So many NIMBY meetings to attend, so little time…
Remember back in the day, when Little Star Pizza had a GroupOn type of 50% off deal?
Well, that one didn’t last long – sold out with a quickness.
But now, a similar deal is back, courtesy of Google Offers.
Note that this if for Early Birds only, so you’ll need to be seated by 6:30 PM. (Little Stars are busy enough during prime-time dinner hours already, right?)
Also, Hurry! As this deal won’t last long.
So far, all of the other deals offered by Google Offers since it began in San Francisco have been good as well.
Now, you know Little Star, right?

(I’ll have to check and see where the stairs lead to now – it looks like an M. C. Escher subject at this point, IMO.)

Now, a scrappy kid called Nicolas Kim Coppola (aka Nic Cage) took a different approach back 15 years ago. Check out his tacked on garage monstrosity at 1945 Franklin.
In conclusion, rich people in San Francisco just loooooooooove car garages – they just can’t get enough of them.
