Friday, September 8th, 2017

[“The Golden City?” What the…? You can say Frisco, I’m srsly. Here’s the latest scholarship, as of 2017:

SFGate predicted awhile ago that the young and hip would revive it. Joe Eskenazi wrote for SF Weekly that it’s mostly old white people who don’t like it. And Buzzfeed launched a “Call It Frisco” campaign last year.]

Frisco Can’t Do Math: “PARK AT 90 DEGREES” = 45 Degrees or So, IRL

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

I’ll tell you, I can’t figure our if our SFMTA hearts parking spaces or not.

The only thing that makes sense is that it favors some citizens over others – if you go down there and yammer at them enough, they just might “create” more parking in your ‘hood* by putting up PARK AT 90 DEGREES signs, thusly:

7J7C3966 copy

(Sweet Ford Mustang LX 4.9 litre. I sold mine more than a quarter century ago. It was the lighter notchback version without that heavy liftback glass panel. It had a Holley four-barrel carburetor what made the engine H.O. – High Output, a whopping 165 horsepower. Engineers from Old GM called it The Best Damn Ford Fairmont Ever Made, which was sort of true given the lowly Fox Platform heritage both nameplates shared. What else, oh, paper grocery bags wouldn’t stand up straight in the tiny trunk – they were too tall you see. Ah, mem’ries.)

But then somebody sidles on in at an angle and then all the sheeple (the sheeple, man!), well, they follow along and all that extra parking is “destroyed,” if only temporarily.

Park better, Frisco!

* A particularly egregious example is a couple blocks of Fulton west** of NoPA. Our SFMTA “created” parking spaces, so outbound bike riders are more less invited to “take the lane” and scan for cars backing up. Less than ideal, one thinks.

** Which is the area west of north of east of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle, I’m srsly. Thx realtors!***

***The word realtors should always be in lower case, you know, put those ppl in their place. If you ever capitalize realtor, well then you’re a pansy, a daffodil. Oh what’s that, them realtorses are one of your main advertisers? Well, never mind then, (pansy).
