When Oh When Will San Francisco Be Rid of Vaillancourt Fountain? It Riffs Off a Freeway That’s No Longer There

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Vaillancourt Fountain was a comment on its former neighbor, the Embarcadero Freeway. But the freeway is all gone, so why are we still stuck with the fountain?

Remember when SFGov shut down this fountain back in 2000 to save on operating costs?

Why not let’s do that again?

(Hey man, nice shot!)

Or better yet, let’s just take this whole thing down.

Keep Your Brothel or Growhouse Secure with this 16-Camera CCTV System for Just $800

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

These days, you can’t just sit back and let the cops to all the work protecting your bidness from the criminal element. So why not spend a day installing cheap cameras all over the place so you can record 16 video streams 24-7?  You’ll be the Hero of Haight Street, or wherever, and then you can start making your own videos about “The Gauntlet” or whatever.

Wide angle, telephoto, infrared LED lighting, hook it up to the Internet for free, watch it live from you smart phone, hook up more hard drives for extra storage – this thing has it all.   

Or maybe, you could point some of your extra cams at a nearby intersection, such as problematic Fell crossing Masonic or horrible Octavia Boulevard crossing everything – Market, Haight, Page, Oak, Fell, the works. You’d be the hero of the hood by being able to demonstrate just how somebody got injured.

Or just do it to impress your neighbors in the Richmond or Sunset districts. You wouldn’t even need to hook up the cams - just mount them all over the place and then everybody will go, “Oh, that must be the new brothel and/or growhouse in the neighborhood.” Don’t think they’ll mess with you after that. Respect! 

Get cracking.
