Appears as if The City That Knows How doesn’t know how to maintain its garbage cans, sometimes.
All the deets on this “emergency” cleanup that will occur today, July 21st, 2014
“There is a lot of trash littering the streets of Japantown following the massive crowds of 100.000+ visitors this past weekend for the J-Pop Summit and Ramen Yokocho Festival. If you are available, please join other concerned members of the Japantown community TONIGHT as we pitch in to clean up the trash on the streets. We’ll be meeting at Japantown Peace Plaza starting at 6pm and will provide disposable gloves and trash bags. Any help or additional cleaning supplies or equipment you can contribute would be greatly appreciated.
Event organizers are unable to completely clean up the mess, although they are providing steam cleaning for the sidewalks where ramen vendors were situated.
Let’s take care of our community together and clean up Japantown! Thank you so much to everyone coming to help tonight.”
This news comes via Akit:
Here’s your bible story and there it is, having been thrown onto a crosswalk of Grove by a homeless person about 30 seconds earlier:
But lo, a passing jogger picked up the bible and put it back from whence it came, on top of a garbage bin:
The whole transaction from bin to street to bin took about a minute.

Your Commonwealth Club has gone stark raving mad for the Grand Old Party this week!
Check it here are the top three joints that the CC is promoting right now:
And Tiger Mother Amy Chua* et vir,** well, they sure sound Republican.
But rest assured, the following week features Barbara Boxer and other Dems flogging their books and causes and whatnot, so everything’ll be back to normal soon ‘nough.
This concludes OMG, It’s Republican Week at the Commonwealth Club: P.J. O’Rourke, Tom Perkins, and Amy Chua & Jed Rubenfeld Feb 12-14.
*”Provocative and profound, Chua and Rubenfeld will transform the way we think about success and achievement.” Uh, nope!
**Namely, Tiger Mother Baby Daddy (TMBD) Jed Rubenfeld. Who’s he? Let’s check his Wiki – “Personal life: Rubenfeld is Jewish.” OK then.
Take a look – what do you think?

In aggravation, SFGov, the official government of the city and county of San Francisco wastes world-class drinking water on everything. San Francisco has never ever recycled water in all its history. We could, but we don’t feel like it…
Anyway, I don’t know who these people are and I didn’t take this shot, so there you go.
A big-old van!
And this wasn’t even all that late at night, on McAllister in the so-called Alamo Square Historic District, which is what real estate-obsessed white people call their part of the Western Addition.
I’ve never seen this!
Dude just double parks his ride on McAllister inbound and then tips over a green bin of aluminum cans and bottles into a garbage bag.
And then yet another load goes into the back, thusly. A victimless crime?

In other news, the Recology monopoly wants to raise its rates like 50% or something. (Oh not now, you’ll wait until next year to raise rates 50%? OK fine.)
Do other towns in the bay area have garbage monopolies the way Recology has fixed things in San Francisco?
