Double-Parking: It’s Your Right as a San Franciscan, Particularly When You’re Riding in a Convoy

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

On most streets, nobody’s going to stop you, so why not do it?

The only downside would be causing an accident, ’cause you could have some liability there.

But see? These gals are Doin’ It Right – they parked in the middle of the block. Whatever you do, don’t park too close to a cross-street:

Ah, breaker one-nine, this here’s the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me, Big Ben, c’mon?

Ah, yeah, 10-4, Big Ben, for sure, for sure. By golly, it’s clean clear to Flag Town, c’mon.

Yeah, that’s a big 10-4 there, Big Ben, yeah, we definitely got the front door, good buddy.

Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy…

Look Out, Golden Gate University! Former Students are About to Sue Your Law School for Overly Rosy Employment Data

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

I think that’s the right way to describe it.

Here’s the news of the day:

“Attention Golden Gate Law School graduates We intend to sue 15 law schools throughout the country — including 4 in California — shortly after the New Year for allegedly inflating their employment data. One of the schools we intend to sue is the Golden Gate University School of Law (we’ve just added them to our list). Our general rule is that we won’t sue a school unless we have at least three name plaintiffs, and while we’ve secured the requisite number for most of the schools, we still have not reached that number for Golden Gate Law. If you have graduated from the school in the past few years and would potentially be interested in serving as a class representative please visit my law firm’s website (http://www.anziskalaw.com/) to learn more about the Law School Litigation or give me a call at 914-216-3540. Now is the time to make your voices heard and finally hold law schools accountable. Regards. . .David”

Actually, maybe it’s good news that this attorney needs to hunt on the craigslist for GGU grads. (You’d think that former students would be coming out of the woodwork already during this Great Recession.)

Oh, and USF too – you’re gonna get sued as well.

The schools on the list currently:

“1) Albany Law School                                                

2) Brooklyn Law School

3) Hofstra Law School                                               

4) Pace University School of Law

5) St. John’s University School of Law                      

6) Widener University School of Law                        

7) University of Baltimore School of Law

8 ) Florida Coastal School of Law                               

9) Chicago-Kent College of Law

10) DePaul University School of Law                        

11) John Marshall School of Law

12) California Western School of Law                       

13) Southwestern Law School

14) Golden Gate University School of Law

15) University of San Francisco School of Law”

That’s it so far. To Be Continued…

KALW Does a Bit on Bolinas, That Marin County Town That’s Friendly, and yet Not Friendly

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

KALW‘s Steven Short finds Bolinas, CA a “friendly town” – check out his new CrossCurrents bit here, why not?

Now, here’s my version of the story. Enjoy:

Inbetwixt the friendly elephant seals of the Point Reyes National Seashore…

(This was from at least double the official keep-away distance, we’re talking hundreds of yards, so I don’t want to hear it. Made using the remarkable 1999-2010 Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS USM and EF 2x II Extender, handheld.) 

…and the friendly regular seals of Bolinas Lagoon…

…you’ll find the unfriendly town of Bolinas, CA:

The reason why the locals, some of whom, for some reason, feel quite empowered to bully auslanders, always tear down the road signs on the Pacific Coast Highway is because their USPS letter carrier already knows how to get there.
