Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Eastern SoMA comes in at $4, but Western SoMA has unlimited one dollar cans:

How refreshing!

Gas price go up, gas price go down
Meal price fluctuate all of the time
One dollar can one dollar all the time

It really was a sugar tax, wasn’t it, Santa?

Four Dollar Coke Machine – “Thank You!”

What’s the next threshold – $5 a bottle, or $10?

Oh:

The soda industry has so much money and there’s just no limit.

You know, I think Coke and Pepsi can afford a soda tax on $4 bottles…

Is This an Ad Against Frisco’s Proposed Soda Tax? – Check Out La Mission Market en la Mision

Is this Coke ad / store sign new?

Sure looks like it.

I guess Pepsi and Coke know they’re a gonna lose on the “grocery tax” issue next month, but they just want the margin to be as low as possible?

“The Grocery Tax” isn’t a Grocery Tax – Sry

Here’s what Prop V is.

And here’s how things are working out in Berkeley.

Owner? Former owner? Current owner? Part owner?

And is this the Mi Terra Market the “No on V, Enough is Enough, Don’t Tax Our Groceries, with Major Funding by American Beverage Association California PAC” people are citing? IDK.

Anyway, perhaps it’s this mailer itself what’s “wrong?”

This one’s especially bad, even for Frisco.

Just saying.

Do These Jaywalkers on 30 MPH Masonic Realize That Somebody Died in This Exact Place Doing the Exact Same Thing?

Highly risky:

I’m guessing no, they do not.

I suppose I harp on this Trader Joe’s issue…

The Unit Block of Masonic: A Daily Game of Frogger with Traffic Going 30 MPH in Both Directions

Get up to speed here.

The limit here, betwixt Pine and Geary, is 30 MPH

This is poor planning.

This is San Francisco.

Here’s the view from the north…

…and here’s the view from the south:

Mind you, this is after SFGov originally “planned” things and also after SFGov “fixed” things by “giving” a lane of Masonic to TJ’s.

So southbound Masonic, the Great Connector betwixt Pine and Geary and Pine and Turk and Pine and Fell, and eventually Lincoln, goes down to one lane, oh well.

Mind you, not all the ppl in the slow lane want to shop at TJ’s – some are just stuck there until the fast lane opens up. This of course is also a symptom of the problem.

Just saying…

And here’s the caboose of this jaywalking / jay-running train:

I’ve been tilting at this windmill for a while now. At first on SFist back about 2007 or so and then on this tiny blog. The first TJ’s shopper death came a few years back. The next will come tomorrow or next year or in another five years, something like that.

What’s that, the speed limit here is 25 MPH and cars come through “speeding” all the time? Well, not really. Average speed for southbound traffic is fairly low. And for northbound, it’s not all that fast either. And oh, the limit on this stretch of Masonic is 30 MPH.

What’s that, Planning and DPW and the all-knowing, all-seeing SFMTA have a plan for Masonic and it’s coming soon? Well, not really. The project wasn’t as “shovel-ready as promised so they’ve loaned the Masonic-designated pork for other stuff. A “new” Masonic will eventually come, but not above Geary and TJ’s and all the photos you can see are all from north of Geary.

That’s the update for 2015.
