Falun Gong Show: What You Need to Know About “SHEN YUN Dec 31 – Jan 8,” Playing at Our War Memorial Opera HouseThursday, December 22nd, 2016
Well let’s see. There’s this:
(I think it’s the 10th anniversary of this piece of service journalism, back when blogs were big.)
And there’s the Yelp entry.
Oh, a red, white, and green theme this year – how Christmassy!
And oh yeah, the government of the Unitary Communist State known as the People’s Republic of China just hates this show, so you can find a few “facts” from the propaganda arm of the PRC on the web, pretty high up in Google searches, as well.
IMO, one should be able to know a bit about this show afore seeing it, that’s all…
How to Ask Our SFMTA to Not Give a Ticket for Excess Parking? – ONE SIMPLY TRICK! – Use an Orange Traffic ConeTuesday, October 4th, 2016
I’ve seen this all over town:
Does it work?
But the owner of this car is telling/asking PCOs to not get ticketed, either due to being an SFMTA employee, or some other SFGov employee or being a minimum wage contractor hired through The City or some Community Benefit District to sweep up the sidewalks, or having some color of authority…
Anti-Blight Fix-It Project from 1992 Becomes Blight Itself – Mostly Empty PedMount News Racks are the New “Blight”Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

The City instituted a pilot program which resulted in the development of a pedestal mounted newsrack. The response was positive and the Public Works Code was amended to create pedestal mounted newsrack zones. Due to the decline in printed news circulation, these racks have become a contributing factor to cluttering and blighting our sidewalks”
Well, let’s see, some things are just wrong here, with this self-serving account, and other salient matters, like the huge costs this program has stuck all of us with, have been conveniently omitted. Anywho, what comes through is that the ugly busybodies about town collectively known as San Francisco Beautiful got just what they wanted but now they’re not happy.
What would you call this – a tax on the media, a fee on the media? These workers drive over from the East Bay to lovingly maintain mostly empty PedMount news racks and then send the bill whatever media entity what’s still operating in Frisco. It Takes A Village to maintain a news rack – look at all this paraphernalia:
And then they beep the bar code to prove they really came. What is this for?
What a horrible idea this was.
How much has it cost us, over the years?
Just as the Tenderloin has Ace’s, for the New Yawk crowd, the Lower Haight has DANNY COYLES, apparently, on Any Given Sunday:
