*Oh, not really. Actually, after watching on a friend’s big screen (’cause I don’t I have cable ’cause I want the Comcast monopoly to die die die) I had to ride my bike on up to Pac Heights. The city was electric, all over, not just in the Mission and in the Haights.
“To my great dismay, I stopped by to get my hair cut today, only to find the place boarded up. It seems the barbers have moved on to other places.
Kevin has moved to 1315 Fillmore, just down the street, while Al and Gail have moved to Esquire Barber Shop at 1826 Geary Blvd.
I’ve been getting my hair cut her e since 2006, and it’s a shame to see such a place just disappear. The barbers were nice, remembered me even after I left the city for a couple years, and always fixed me up right. Plus, the moment you walked in you could feel the history of the place, there was a nice feel there.
I wish the staff all the best, and I’ll be seeking out Kevin soon at his new location.”
“You think I give a fuck about a Willie Brown at the end of the day when it comes to my community and the shit that people like Rose Pak and Willie Brown continue to do and try to controls things. They don’t fucking control me – you go ask them why wouldn’t you support London because she don’t do what the hell I tell her to do. I don’t do what no motherfucking body tells me to do.”
Hey, you think maybe she’s watchedYouTube, just a little?
(Hey, you know, the two times when Mayor Ed Lee did a little independent thinking since Willie Brown and Rose Pak got him appointed Mayor are when he appointed the fairly stupid Christina Olague to replace Ross Mirkarimi and when he advocated for the complete non-starter “stop and frisk program.”Perhaps he should just do what he’s told 100% of the time instead of 90% of the time?)
In any event, HERE COMES LONDON BREED:

Hey, SFMTA! Is this your new set of wheels? Oh it is? Well then, what are those attachment things on the roof detecting? Are they detecting a whole bunch of license plates? Well, good for you, SFMTA, good for you.
On McAllister Street during last night’s evening drive:
O.K., all the deets. I hope our meter maids have all the features shown here:
License Plate Reader
SkyCop® – Mobile License Plate Recognition & Video Surveillance System Pan & Tilt LPR Unit with Thermal Imaging Camera and High Resolution Day / Night CameraHideaway Touchscreen Radio System
The SkyCop ® Mobile License Plate Recognition & Video Surveillance System (MLPRV) is a complete License PlateRecognition System packaged in a platform to provide mobile, on the fly, license plate reading, video surveillance and analysis. The most advanced of its kind, the MLPRV system incorporates all of today’s advanced technologies to provide on board storage, and remote access for database updates, data offload, and video records retrieval. This technology allows officers to instantly check license plate information as they drive through their patrol areas. Information such as:
People driving on revoked licenses
Stolen plates and/or stolen vehicles
stolen renewal decals
Actual vehicle registration info
All of this information is provided instantly to the officer while they operate their vehicle, without any user action.
Designed for use in Law Enforcement type vehicles the MLPRV system can also be used withSkyCop® Trailer units and other types of vehicles to increase access protection on a temporary basis for special events. All MLPRV systems provide advanced user friendly features such as the dash mount Touch Screen Control / View Panel with “quick touch” keys for preset positioning of the License Plate Reader and Video Cameras.
Complete with full Pan and Tilt capabilities users can position the License Plate Reader Module in any position desired for precision read areas. Five (5) preset positions are available for frequent positioning. In addition to control functions the dash mounted Touch Screen provides real-time read display and live video display information to the user. “Hot List(s)” information can be entered or imported into the on board computer system to provide flag and alert information to the operator for License Plates that have been designated as plates of interest through local and national databases. Other advanced options and features allow for full integration into other SkyCop® products such as Thermal Imaging Cameras and High Resolution Day / Night Cameras that can be mounted on the Pan & Tilt device. The MLPRV System can also monitor and control other citywide deployments of SkyCop Camera systems for advanced monitoring of a scene. Command Center can also display the MLPRV System while in operation.
The MLPRV is a vehicle-mounted system for license plate image capture and video processing permitting autonomous operation (requiring no direct action of a user) to read license plates and match against various hot list of wanted vehicles.
The Mobile Video Surveillance Platform will record video and audio using H.264 compression and have the ability to record up to eight (8) analog cameras for on board video and audio storage with remote streaming to a command center. The system will include a 7” In-Dash Touchscreen for control and monitoring. The License Plate Recognition System (LPR) will use dual-camera imaging (high-resolution cameras for license plate reading, secondary cameras for evidence gathering), GPS (with or without) moving map display, back-end evidence and reporting software, and a wireless communication capability for transferring data between the back-end and each mobile unit. The LPR and Video Surveillance system is mounted on a Pan & Tilt drive system and can be installed on the center light bar or other preferred areas. The LPR and Surveillance Cameras can be automatically positioned on all sides of the vehicle while in operation.
If you voted for Ed Lee for Mayor, your choice for the next D5 Supervisor is London Breed.*
OTOH, if you voted against Ed Lee for Mayor, your choice for the next D5 Supervisor is Julian Davis. Throw in a couple other choices if you want, but make sure neither one is London Breed or Interim Supervisor and Total Sellout Christine Olague. (Or should I say Christine “8 Washington” Olague? Or should I say Christine “Perjurer Accomplice” Olague?)
Come out and say hi to Julian, I’m sure he’ll be there, this Sunday:
(I wish San Francisco had just an average kind of utility monopoly instead of motherfucking PG&E. Speaking of which, a while back they inquired about how much it would cost to advertise some PR campaign on this tiny blog. I was like GTFO – I ignored it. Interestingly, presented with a similar offer, the San Francisco Bay Guardian said bring it, and so then PGE’s signature blue banner ads started appearing at SFBG.com, I’m seriously. Ah memories. )
Anyway, see you at Sunday Streets Western Addition 2012.
*I’m sure he’d be delighted to have her on board. Now, she’s a little PO’ed these days about how she kind of got screwed over by Interim Mayor Ed Lee earlier this year, oh and by Willie Brown and Rose Pak and all, but I’m sure Mayor Lee and his minders would adapt to London’s election swimmingly. (Of course Ed Lie said he would stay out of this particular race and of course now he’s now picking sides in D5, you know, just a few months later, but he also said he wouldn’t run for Mayor. In fact that’s why he became Interim Mayor, based on that other promise. Hence the sobriquet Ed Lie.) Anyway, Republican billionaire Ron Conway threw her a few bucks a little while ago – that’s telling, IMO. Oh, and DiFi just endorsed her, and you can’t get any more Establishment than DiFi I don’t think.
