Here’s what you see on the Fillmore side, an African animal:
And this on the other side of the dividing line, a yin-yang symbol, for Japantown?
Co-opting The Mission Burrito sure takes a long time, huh?
Artist’s conception of what the mighty sign on Masonic will look like, sooner or later:
Appears as if Panera Bread will win the race to further chainify the Western Addition…
And it looks like not a single soul in the world will raise a voice against the Chipotle chain coming to 2675 Geary.
Here’s what it’ll look like, buried deep inside the City Centre Mall at Geary and Maosnic, you now, the former home of Sears and then Mervyn’s and now the current home of City Target West:
And speaking of chain sto’s, drink it up, Gentle Reader:
Now you’d think one person, perhaps just one solitary millionaire NIMBY, would take two minutes to register an objection, but you’d be wrong. WRONG WRONG WRONG! Not a single soul raised a peep, so here comes Chipotle to San Francisco’s District Two.
The gritty nitty from our Planning Commission.
Westeros, the West Side of Frisco, loves, just loves, chain stores, is what I’m saying.
In closing, The Mall Has It All.
Here it is, from a the guy who wants to replace District One Supervisor Eric Mar.

BUS RAPID TRANSIT PROJECT UPDATE!
The Geary Corridor Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project is a cost-effective way to improve bus service and enhance street conditions for Geary from Downtown to the Outer Richmond.

The Transportation Authority is leading the environmental study, in partnership with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA). The Study Team and other public agencies are working collaboratively with the Geary BRT Citizens Advisory Comittee (GCAC), as well as inviting public participation through community meetings.
Before Andrea Koskey became yet another San Francisco Examiner writer who sold out to The Man by taking a gig* with political scion / man-child Gavin Newsom, she was writing stuff like this about the unused ped bridge over Geary at Steiner.
So like SFGov “improved” the Western Addition by tearing down a mess of Victorians (which would be worth 7 figures a piece these days) to replace them with concrete and clay and general decay.
Next, it’s going to improve things by tearing down some of the concrete, when it feels like it. (Is “chop shop” a verb? Yes, it’s become a palliative cliche in D5.)
Here’s how things stand today, with the recent changes to the newish crosswalk.

Here’s the latest from the Eric Mar campaign:
“Supervisor Eric Mar First Candidate To Qualify for Public Financing
SAN FRANCISCO, July 2, 2012 – Late on Friday afternoon, Supervisor Eric Mar’s re-election campaign received the official word from the San Francisco Ethics Commission that he is the first candidate in the city, from any district or any race, to qualify to receive public matching funds.
Supervisor Mar’s campaign will receive their first $20,000 in qualifying public funds from the city shortly.
Campaign spokeswoman Nicole Derse said, “This accomplishment highlights Supervisor Mar’s broad community support and the strength of our grassroots campaign. We are proud to be the only candidate in the city to have met this goal.”
To receive public financing, a candidate must collect at least $15,000 in qualifying contributions from San Franciscans for donations up to $100. Although many candidates, including Supervisor Mar, have raised substantially more funds than that, the threshold for public financing measures the quantity of low-dollar donations. Supervisor Mar’s campaign has received donations from over 450 individual donors, the vast majority of them from San Franciscans in amounts from $5-$100.
“I am incredibly honored to be the first candidate in the city to qualify for public financing. I look forward to engaging thousands of Richmond residents in our grassroots campaign over the next four months,” said Supervisor Eric Mar.
Supervisor Mar is running a strong grassroots campaign, and signature gathering and voter contact efforts will further intensify in July.
Supervisor Mar’s re-election campaign will open the doors on their new Richmond office at 5812 Geary Blvd. (at 22nd Avenue) this week and will hold an office opening celebration and signature gathering mobilization next Saturday, July 7th at 12:00 Noon.
Supervisor Mar will be updating information on his campaign regularly at his website www.ReelectMar.com“
Aslan, the Lion of the Richmond, is, once again, on the move, the same as four years ago:
Sorry, CW Nevius. The conservative-faction victory you, for some reason, so desperately seek won’t be found in District One. Not this year.
She seemed to be doing it responsibly, and she was on a stretch of road famous for drunk drivers, and she just left another road famous for drunk drivers.
