Isn’t It a Shame that People Have to Wait Until 12 Noon to Get Into Our Main Public Library on Sundays?

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Yes. Yes it is a shame.

Just look at these poor wretches, queuing up for the big library to open.

Shouldn’t this place open at 9:00 AM instead, you know, on Sundays?

I think so.

The Hard-Working Candidates of District 2: Janet’s 3000 Door Knocks, Kat’s 15,000 Brochure Handouts

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Well, it looks as if some more candidates for Supervisorial District #2 are wearing out their shoe leather – it’s not just Mark Farrell pounding the pavement these days.

Take Janet Reilly, for instance.

She’s counted up all the doors she’s knocked upon during her campaign so far and she’s hit 3000. Wow, that’s a lot.

See? Here’s her release from yesterday:

O.K. then.

Not to be outdone, Stanfoo-educated Kat Anderson handed out her 15,000th brochure just today. The legal eagle reports that #14,999 went to a landlord named Benny and #15,000 went to Ed and Kevin at the JetMail business at the southern reaches of the district.

  

If you print up 15k worth of brochures and you hand them all out, then it’s easy to keep count, I s’pose.

Anyway, appears as if the typical resident and the typical small business owner in District 2 are going to run into more than one candidate before all is said and done. Don’t know if that’s true in any of the other districts…

All six declared hopefuls should be at the big forum coming up next week. See you there.

The Devil Strikes Prada – May Day Attack Actually Improves Look of Italian Retailer

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

Just look at what los diablitos did to Prada on the evening of May Day in San Francisco’s Union Square – the anarchists done tore up storefronts on Grant Street. Well that’s par for the course, but the aftermath of the attack on these massive glass doors at the Prada outlet looks so cool that customers couldn’t tell that vandals had dropped by.

People pay good money for this kind of effect, of course.

Store clerks just propped open one of the doors so you could tell that they were open for business and life went on as before. Click to expand:

That looks much better than gauche plywood, doesn’t it? How banal!

Busted tempered glass looks interesting:

You’re probably thinking that converting the front doors of your car to Lamborghini style scissors would be pricey, but you’re wrong.
