I’m srsly, they’ve got a whole Have You Seen The Bear thing going on these days

Monarch was last seen boarding a Greyhound bus headed to Dallas, Texas.

Who approved this California-backed marketing campaign? Was it Lou Avery?

Cat Burglar and Cat Woman Steal a Bubenreuth Cello from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music? Photos

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

The Reddit Community is going crazy over this one.

Is this what it would look like if Anne Hathaway / Parker Posey (on the left) and Bobby Flay (on the right) conspired to steal a little violone from San Francisco’s world-famous Conservatory of Music in Civic Center / Hayes Valley?

From yesterday:

“Hey Reddit, my son’s very expensive cello was stolen from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music yesterday. Here are the surveillance pics from security that show a young couple making-off with my son’s primary instrument. FWIW, this instrument is one of the most expensive things I have ever owned. It was stolen around 4:05 PM on Sunday, September 16th, 2012. These people are nonchalantly making-off with a full-size cello that was purchased when my son graduated from a smaller cello when he was 12. We’ve owned it for 11 years. He’s in the collegiate division at the San Francisco Conservatory and it is not only the vehicle for his ability to obtain a classical music degree, but is also his sole source of income, as he uses it in performances and recordings. We’ll be doing a media blitz tomorrow with local stations and the SFPD, but I’m hoping the community can help. Any leads are incredibly appreciated.”

All the photos.

Do you have enough Clues? Who will solve this mystery? 

(Is it Mrs. Peacock in the Conservatory with a Revolver?)

The Scene of a Possible Pedestrian Fatality on 101 North Approaching Cesar Chavez

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Read about this accident at the high volume ActionNewsSf  Twitter page:

“TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Accident involving a pedestrian on the North 101 off ramp. CHP lists the incident as a ‘possible fatality.’”

Lots of CHP cruisers were on the scene just before 9:00 PM tonight. You can see officers focusing a flashlight on one area while taking measurements near the dark-colored Honda Civic sedan.

Not sure what happened but obviously there’s not much room on the shoulder for walking down to Bayshore if your car breaks down.

Will update.

Per unconfirmed reports to 911, an African American man on crutches walked up the offramp. Appears that he may have died.

[UPDATE: Joe Eskenazi has the sad story of Willie Speights.

Look for it the next time you pass the second Alemany.

They’re calling it a cold case now, but the reward is still out there.
