I’m sure there’s a story behind this…
Look at me, aren’t I pretty! I’m the former Mayor’s granddaughter, did you know that? Vote for me, one, two or three! Do you know all that I stand for? I stand for corporate welfare for San Francisco biotechnology companies. And I stand for, uh, women, like you (unless you’re that horrid Janet Reilly woman, yish). And I stand for, uh… Hey, I’m the former Mayor’s granddaughter, did you know that? Vote for me, one, two or three!

Of course MAP has no chance of winning on November 8th but that won’t stop her from using your taxpayer dollars to hire internationally-famous consultants and using your dough to pay for posters and ads what place her in a favorable light.
This is what we get from our current public financing system…
As far as these Kingfishers are concerned, the girls are the pretty ones and the boys have to make do without the namesake rust-colored belt. Wiki calls it reverse sexual dimorphism.
As seen on the island at South Lake in Golden Gate Park, 40th Ave and Lincoln:

This is the closest I’ve ever been to a Belted Kingfisher, as seen through one of these, which cost 100 times as much as the tripod I used it on. (I can’t be lugging monstrous $700 carbon fiber tripods all over town easily so these days I only have lenses in the 6-pounds-and-under-category. Tripods are not for me, I’ve decided.)
I don’t know, what motervates people to spend their weekends wandering Golden Gate Park gathering signatures for the election of somebody who said he’s not running?
I don’t know, it must be something. (I don’t think it’s anything grass-rootsy though.
See the rainbow and the leather cap? That means that Mayor Ed Lee is Good For Gays, apparently. Anyway, these gals seemed to be having a good time:

Well, it looks like we have the German Consulate and the Teamsters to thank for today’s showing of the final match of World Cup 2011.
(Did Rec and Park make a special website to promote this event in Civic Center? Looks that way.)
All the deets of the U.S. vs. Japan:
The weather was looking like it was going to be a little kosame (Japanese for drizzle, something like “a little bit of rain”) today but Civic Center is generally sunny even when there’s drizzle in the West Bay, so it should all be good.
Hey, you know who has World Cup fever? SFGate, that’s who. SFGate just seems to loooooove frolicking female soccer players.
*Oh, I guess they added more shots in there on that bit. Before, it was like seven frolicsome honey photos with just one sports-type shot. But it looks like they were just getting started when I first noticed. Still, you don’t get too many frolic shots of men’s soccer on the SFGate…
But is at least one of them out of uniform?

Possibly, despite the fact that women seem to have more flexibility in this area than men:
5. JEWELRY AND ORNAMENTS (also see DGO 11.08, Grooming Standards). On-duty officers shall not wear jewelry or personal ornaments that are visible except:
a. A wristwatch.
b. A total of 2 rings that are consistent with officer safety. An engagement and wedding ring set will be considered as one ring.
c. A conservative tie bar or tie tack.
d. Female officers may, in addition, wear the following:
1. Hair clips or pins that match the color of the hair.
2. One ear post in each ear. The post must lie flush with the ear and be plain metal, gold or silver colored. The face of the post is not to have a diameter of more than three-eighths (3/8) inch. Nothing shall hang from the post.
But, as always, You Make The Call.
Now, you kids are too young to remember the 80’s, but your parents certainly know that:
“The Go-Go’s were the most popular all-female band to emerge from the punk/new wave explosion of the late ’70s and early ’80s, becoming one of the first commercially successful female groups that wasn’t controlled by male producers or managers. While their hit singles — “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” “Head Over Heels” — were bright, energetic new wave pop, the group was an integral part of the Californian punk scene”
Well, OMG, they’re back and they’re going to play the Fillmore Theatre August 16th. Deets below.
Oh, here they are, Meet the Gogo’s:

Maybe they weren’t as big as the Spice Girls, but the were a little more real than the SG. (The GG’s weren’t put together by some dudes placing a classified ad in the papah and then picking a crew from 500 respondents…)
Anyway, all the deets of this summer’s Ladies Gone Wild Tour, after the jump.
