The Battle’s Over and the Canada Geese Have Won: Bird Poo’s All Over Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park

Monday, November 21st, 2016

(I suppose that Strybing has a new name these days, but I don’t approve of the change (and also the new paywall – up to $8 per capita these days), so oh well. Hey, is Strybing for People Who Visit or is it a vehicle for some garden “society” to, somehow, attain “world class” status – that’s the choice, it seems.)

I ‘member when just a few geese would hang out in GGP year ’round, back in the 90’s. Well, that was then and this is now:

Now IDK if numbers are up over the past decade or so, but what I’ve never seen is goose poop all over the Great Fountain. I expect to see poo on the lawns, but not up here, is what I’m saying.

In the words of one tourist, “Eight bucks for this?”

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Here’s what’s coming up at your free San Francisco Public Library:

“Korean Comics: A Society Through Small Frames – Exhibition in the Library’s Jewett Gallery, March 13th – June 13th, 2010. San Francisco Public Library is pleased to present, Korean Comics: A Society Through Small Frames, an exhibition of 83 framed works by 21 of Korea’s most talented cartoonists drawn over a period of four decades, on view March 13–June 13 in the Jewett Gallery at the Main Library, 100 Larkin St.”

O.K. then.

I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. Oh, wait a second, this is the cover of North Korea’s version of Animal Farm. I forget which one is the Queen Bee, is it the Dear Leader, the Great Leader? One of them, anyway. Good times:
