For some reason.
A couple decades back, people at house parties would overload these decks and then come crashing down, due to dry rot people would say.
I suppose SFGov is doing a better job regulating things nowadays.
This coyote was a mere pup last year. Now it’s a yearling in the “wilds” of Golden Gate Park:
Balboa Park, Balboa 31X, Balboa Street – there are lots of examples.
Now let’s check and see what Vasco Núñez de Balboa did to be so honored.
Oh, here it is:
Balboa setting his dogs upon Indian practitioners of male love (1594) The Spanish invader Vasco Núñez de Balboa (1475-1519) shown in Central America with his troops, presiding over the execution of Indians, whom he ordered eaten alive by the war dogs for having practiced male love. New York Public Library, Rare Book Room, De Bry Collection, New York.
Oh and we honor Funston too?
Hey, remember when that woman who was doing nothing at all wrong got killed by that MUNI bus driver last year and the driver said that the woman who was doing nothing at all wrong had not been paying attention?*
“Loggins’ attorney, Stuart Hanlon, told reporters last month that Dunn had also not been paying attention before the accident; apparently she had her head down and was texting while crossing the street, he said.
Well the SFMTAMUNIDPT, that outfit that mismanages MUNI and hands out parking tickets, doesn’t remember.
Apparently, when MUNI drivers and operators kill people, it’s the fault of the peds themselves, all of them, apparently, and especially those in the the Asian-American-businesswomen-walking-about-whilst-wearing-ginormous-Sony-STUDIO- MONITOR-headphones-demographic.
Wow, so verite, non?
By the way:
“Comments are disabled for this video.”
I wonder why.
*Gentle Reader, peds have no obligation to pay attention. None. Zero. Peds need to use crosswalks and not start too soon or too late and not go too fast or too slow and, at uncontrolled intersections, they need to yield to traffic already using the intersection, but they can otherwise do pretty much whatever they want and STILL NOT BE HELD AT FAULT FOR THEIR DEATHS. Emily Dunn made it most of the way across the intersection – that’s proof that the MUNI driver was 100% at fault in this case.

There’s no reason for me to read the actual bit, AFAIAC, ’cause I already don’t like our troubled CentralSubwayBigDigSubwayToNowhere.

Central T Subway: Connecting People, Connecting Communities, Giving Money to Dog Killers
BTW, here are the policies for the ridiculous Central Subway blog, you know, in case it gets a reader or commenter some day.
“Central Subway is Phase 2 of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (SFMTA) Third Street Light Rail Project. It will operate as an extension of the T Third line and will extend light rail service with a surface stop on 4th Street near Brannan Street, and subway service under the South of Market (SoMa), Union Square and Chinatown neighborhoods. The Central Subway project is a critical transportation improvement linking neighborhoods in the southeastern part of San Francisco with the retail and employment centers downtown and in Chinatown, and it will provide much needed and improved transportation to an under-served portion of the City.
The Central Subway Blog is monitored and maintained by the project’s Outreach Team.
