KRON-TV’s Big Stanley Roberts vs. the Little Lebowski of the Southern Wiggle: “I Don’t Want To Release This Footage”Friday, April 24th, 2015
Via Stanley Roberts of KRON-TV’s People Behaving Badly comes this “viral” (just two views so far, but the day is young) video.
The driver of this ride should have his/her license pulled until somebody in authoritah can figure out what went wrong:
But that’s not going happen, ’cause driving is a right, and not a privilege. In California, anyway.
I call this real red light running because it’s obvious that the errant driver entered the intersection on a red light (and I’m basically saying that the color of the light when a driver exits doesn’t matter and that peds need to wait for an intersection to clear whether or not they have a green. In California, anyway.) I don’t know if there was any bad behavior on the part of the ped(s).
The saving grace is that a lot of people who don’t know what they’re doing behind the wheel drive real slow. This is a possible drunkie…
DON’T MISS THIS! – Short “Oak Street Bicycle Red Light” Video – People Behaving Badly, Stanley RobertsFriday, May 9th, 2014
I’m a little too close to this one, so I wasn’t sure if this kind of thing would be People Behaving Badly-worthy.
Well, obvs, it is now:
I don’t know how intentional the Great Oak Street Airlock is, you know, how the lights are poorly timed for traffic on Oak but also poorly-timed for cyclists using the Panhandle bike path to get on to Oak and beyond. I suspect that “teaching drivers a lesson” about how they shouldn’t be driving might be involved, but it also could be incompetence/neglect.
Speaking of which, just try to find a street sign what says “Baker” at Oak and Baker these days. Shouldn’t like SFGov like care enough about tourists ‘n stuff to like put up just one fucking street sign at an intersection? Yes, but it’s been this way for months. (If I were Ron Conway AND if I cared enough I could make a one-minute phone call to get the wheels rolling on the let’s-give-Baker-street-signs-what-say-Baker-street project, but I’m not so oh well.)
It’s just like a nighttime bear attack at a Yosemite parking lot:

Opening of San Francisco’s Classiest New Steakhouse, the Penthouse Club, Covered by Our Classiest News Station, KRON-TVFriday, March 16th, 2012
I think that’s Vicki Liviakis* doing a stand-up** in front of the VIP line last night at the Grand Opening of our brand-new San Francisco PENTHOUSE CLUB & Steakhouse.
Looked like kind of a sausage-fest, actually:

But, oh, the reviews are in, already. Let’s hear from from the “Yelp Elite” cognoscente:
“My boyfriend got the 28-day dry aged bone-in ribeye with chimichurri sauce and I got the grass fed filet mignon with shallot confit and sauce Diane. We were both getting full at this point, but not full enough to not devour both of these beef dishes. The chimichurri sauce was the best we have ever had and really enhanced the juicy ribeye. My filet mignon was tasty and rich and the shallot confit added a nice sweet touch to the dish. We had the Jordan Cab with the meat dishes.
“This was one of the best food experiences I have had in a long time! Every single dish was eaten in its entirety and the bits were scraped off the plate with our forks. I would have licked the plate had I been at home. Executive Chef Mike Ellis has created an amazing and versatile menu that is guaranteed to please anyone’s palate.”
Bon Courage, San Francisco PENTHOUSE CLUB & Steakhouse!
*At first, I thought she might have been the talent, you know, coming out of the limo. (That’s a compliment, I suppose…)
**I can’t recall ever seeing a real live person holding a KRON 4*** video camera, cause, you know, usually a tripod does the job. That’s the “VJ” concept.
***If I were in charge of KRON, I’d apply to the FCC to change the name to KORN**** and then I’d beg NBC for an affiliate contract, you know, so it’d be like the old days. That would improve ratings 150% overnight, I’d wager.
****And actually, it would have a Cyrillic R, you know, like this: KoЯn-TV
DPT Stakeout at Costco – Disabled Placard “Street Team” – Expired Permit – Jersey Plates – Lonely PoochMonday, November 21st, 2011
(Check it, my first pro-SFMTA post.)
This cute pup was guarding an Acura parked on 10th Street while its owner visited our SoMA Costco (I assume, I mean, why else would anybody park down there?)

Problem? The disabled placard hanging from the rear-view has expired. See?
So guess who was waiting for this car’s owner to show up – it was DPT’s Disabled Placard Street Team with their bright blue shoulder patches.
Les mise-en-scene avec Etat de Jardin* license plates sur la Acura bleu:
This issue could end up costing the driver thousands of dollars, when all is said and done.** (I can’t say for sure because I don’t get paid by the City Family to stakeout cars, plus I had to split. Oh well.)
Now, WWSD? Like What Would KRON-TV’s Stanley Roberts Do if he came upon this scene? Oh yes, something like this.
But, you know, I might possibly be beefier than Stanley (I know I’m taller than he but I could actually outweigh him) and, you know, I wouldn’t want to get into an another Elmo situation.
Bon courage, Acura pooch. Your owner will need all the love she can get today.
*Garden State – it’s a Jersey Thing.***
**The funny thing is that Costco has plenty of free parking. And honestly, I don’t think the good people of Costco would care all that much if you parked in their garage while shopping elsewhere. As stated, there’s nothing else going on ’round that area so it’s not like they’re on the lookout for renegade parkers.
***YouTube, you’re too funny. Oprah + Snooki = ???
