Here’s one wagonload right here:
See you tomorow
Our GGNRA feds are not prepared for a dreaded sunny (Satur)day at Baker Beach:
Unless beach-goers are going to pack all their cardboard all the way home, this is as good as they can do, one supposes…
[UPDATE: Herb Caen eventually recanted re: the Frisco Issue – see Comments. Or here’s the short version:“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”]
“Person that comes to your house to remove your used AA batteries because you’re too lazy to ‘dispose of them properly.'”
Here you go – they’ll come right to your place for pickup if you put your used batteries in a baggie:
“Curbside Battery Recycling Service – Most residents may place their batteries in a sealed plastic bag taped to the top of their black bin for curbside collection.”
This baggie system is news to me, as I’m accustomed to the Big Orange Bucket:
“Residents of multi-unit homes (4 units or more) should place batteries in their Orange Battery Bucket. If your building does not have one, ask your building manager to order one at (415) 330-1300. For more information on battery recycling, please visit: SFEnvironment.org/ecofinder
So who says our local garbage monopoly is all bad?
*As opposed to the actual Elon Musk. I’ll tell you, BEM is much cheaper for us than the real deal:
Here’s a block on Laguna:
Of course most blocks in San Francisco get swept waaaaaay too often, even after the recent relaxation in scheduling that some areas enjoy.
So my conclusion is that street-sweeping isn’t 100% a scam for SFGov to make money, it’s just mostly a scam. And who’s going to pay for health care for street sweeper workers a half decade from now? Well, that’s SEP (Someone Else’s Problem), that’s something for the Next Mayor to work out…
As seen at our Randall Museum:
Look for San Francisco Chronicle writer and long-time east bay resident CW “Get Off My Lawn“ Nevius* to decry this type of vandalism, you know, after getting contacted, once again, by Yet Another SFGov Department Head.
Oh, our youth, won’t somebody please decry our youth, won’t somebody please harp against the externalizes they generate while consistently ignoring the externalizes generated by older people, such as our Favorite Writer From The East Bay. Oh well, more street clean-up work for DPW:
“[Appointed Mayor Ed] Lee has placed Nuru in charge of a city department with a $129 million city budget and 1,200 employees, despite Nuru’s proven history of directing his subordinates to illegally campaign for his mayoral benefactors. You couldn’t even make this stuff up, and even Examiner columnist Melissa Griffin flatly calls the move “stupid.”
Perhaps CWNevius is overcompensating for his and his generation’s crimes of the past?
*And that’s just the past month!
