Remembering GARFIELD – He Hated Mondays, Loved Lasagna

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

As seen in Golden Gate Park not far from NANCY PELOSI DRIVE. (And just look how happy she is. “You like me, you really like me!”)

And that’s his shorty down there – I think her name was Odie:

Hey, wasn’t Golden Gate Park supposed to be free of statues and other monuments to politicians?

Yes.

Yes it was.

A standing ovation capped the debut of Dreamgirls the other night at a packed Curran Theatre in Union Square. Here’s where you get your tickets.

San Francisco Democrats Boo Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at Gala – How Wude!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Pity poor Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger – tonight he crashed the annual San Francisco Democratic Party Fundraising Gala and Auction at the Fairmont Hotel atop Nob Hill and he was rewarded with a loud round of booing.

Poor guy. Did Assemblymember Tom Ammiano spontaneously yell, “You lie” at Arnold, ala Congressman Joe Wilson? Haha!

Don’t Believe in Clinton/Obama Unity Yet? Then You’re Delusional!

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Comes now Randy Shaw of Beyond Chron (oops, try here or here instead – you know, if a bunch of people want to get something deleted from Wikipedia, they can do it. Man, what is it with some people?) who pronounces:

“Anyone who tells you there is disunity at this [Democratic National] convention is not simply delusional—they are flat out lying.”

Mmmm. That certainly matches the Party Line. Check out this “Joint Statement from Maggie Williams, Senior Advisor to Senator Clinton and David Axelrod, Senior Strategist to Senator Obama” regarding “THE FACT” of unity states this:

“Anyone saying anything else doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Period.”

However, this is all spin. People, there is disunity at this convention. All conventions really, but this one in particular. Some are unusually outraged.

At least these folks were unified, back in the day:

The people over at PUMA (Party Unity My Ass or People United Means Action) PAC would certainly beg to differ. (Might need to update this entry if PUMA talk keeps up.)

And speaking of which, was James Carville wearing Puma shoes on the convention floor? Perhaps this was just a wardrobe malfunction?

Oh well. San Franciscans might want to come down to the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in the Financial District on Thursday night, August 28th, to check out some genuine unity when Obama speaks.

San Francisico Police Captain Proposes Mandatory Hand-Stamping to Track Nightclub Goers.

Friday, June 13th, 2008

It’s been printed in the San Francisco Examiner, (so it must be true):

Captain James Dudley of Central Station in North Beach plans to ask the San Francisco Entertainment Commission to consider making mandatory handstamps specific to a bar or club so police can more easily make connections between specific locations and drunken behavior.

According to the Cap’n, “it would be helpful to be able to track people.”

Will this idea pass constitutional muster? Is it justified? Feel free to read the Captain’s weekly newsletters to see what he’s dealing with  on a nightly basis in the world-famous North Beach area.

Be sure you don’t spend too much time showing off all your temporary tracking stamps to your friends on the street, as loitering too long in front of a club will soon get you into hot water as well.

Stay safe and have fun!
