That’s all I got, the headline.
I wonder how far they carried it, or if they rode MUNI with it.
Anyway, at the very least they lugged it from a parking lot off the Great Highway, and that’s a workout in itself…
Brace yourselves, Liberty Hill, brace yourselves, Castro / Noe Valley. Here’s what could be in store for you:
“Applicant: Stephen Fowler – 38 Liberty Street (3608/044A); Project Review meeting to discuss the following: Property is part of the Liberty Hill Historic District. Applicant would like to raise building, add a garage, and add a vertical and horizontal additions as well as restore Victorian facade. Applicant is requesting a preservation and environmental planner.”
Hey, didn’t Stephen Fowler just wear out his welcome in Noe Valley just a few years ago, before decamping to the ‘burbs of Marin? I think so. Remember that whole deal, when the denizens of Noe went down to City Hall to argue with the San Francisco Wife Swapper et ux. It was a fiasco. Hey, remember when octogenarian Mr. Hanamura, who got “evicted” in World War II, as a Japanese American, had somebody drop a dime on him to SFGov to get him out of his illegal in-law unit? (Hey, who made that call, I wonder.)
And then up in Marin, there was the Tree Topping Issue, but I won’t get into that.
All right, I’ll show my “work.”

And look, does he still want to “restore” the front – a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down? IDK.
Who knows what’s in store…
Anyway, that’s the update on our infamous Wife Swapper / House Flipper / attemptive Victorian Lifter
“Signs we have reached peak-app? Cabbie in SF running 5 dash mounted phones”
Yowzer, what a photo.
All right, your move, SFMTA.
All right, your move, Ed Reiskin.
Read all about it here.
Whoops, maybe not. What happened?
Well then, read all about it here, below.
Poor Sandra! Poor Kristy!
[UPDATE, APRIL 30, 2013: Pulled. Come back May 1 for details, if you want.]
[UPDATE, May 1, 2013: Oh, you’re back! Well, you know, the same basic info has been posted here by SideCar and it pays off on the headline of cars getting impounded. So I guess that’s that, for now. Thank you, drive through,]
Erin Sherbert has the story of today’s ceremony honoring the recent lifting of the San Francisco Bicycle Plan injunction.
(Leave us remember that the four-year-injunction was 100% not the fault of Judge Busch.)
Anyway, look for something like this to go down on Townsend today at 1:00 PM, somewhere near Fourth Street in the SoMA:
But this event will probably push some over the edge. Like the snarky people at Enough, we say, enough:
“OK, we get it, now the city can paint some stripes on the road and call them ‘bike lanes.’ Stop shitting yourself.”
Judge Busch finds that City has complied with CEQA, grants City’s request to allow remaining safety, usability improvements
SAN FRANCISCO (Aug. 6, 2010) — San Francisco Superior Court Judge Peter J. Busch issued an order late this afternoon finding San Francisco in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act, or CEQA, in seeking to implement its Bicycle Plan citywide. The ruling effectively dissolves an injunction that continued to prohibit City engineers from moving forward on some planned bicycle route improvements intended to enhance the safety and usability of streets for bicyclists. A previous order from Nov. 2009 lifted significant portions of the original 2006 injunction, but left limited restrictions intact while the adequacy of environmental review for certain projects was adjudicated.
“I am very gratified by the ruling from Judge Busch, who carefully considered an enormous amount of evidence in this case, and found that the City met its environmental review requirements,” said City Attorney Dennis Herrera. “Today’s decision clears an important hurdle toward making San Francisco safer for bicyclists, and healthier for all of us. I am very thankful to the many dedicated public servants involved in this policy initiative and meeting the stringent legal requirements to fulfill it, including Mayor Gavin Newsom and the Board of Supervisors, the Municipal Transportation Agency, and the Planning Department.”
The case is: Coalition for Adequate Review et al. v. City and County of San Francisco, San Francisco Superior Court No. 505-509, filed July 28, 2005
So there you have it. “Crazy”* Rob Anderson has driven his dead-bang winner of a lawsuit, one that put him on the front page of the Wall Street Journal…
…and made the City and County** look like a bunch of fools, into the ground. He didn’t know when to quit. (The time to quit would have been when the City finally complied with the requirements of CEQA.)
Who knows, maybe he’ll come up with another beautiful lawsuit idea, another slam dunk, but don’t count on it.

*That’s what they called him, out of frustration, back when they had to pay attention to him.
**”Hey remember when we said we were going to start working on those reports earlier and go faster? Forget all that. Actually, we’re going to start later and go slower. We were going to tell you sooner but…”
[UPDATE: The Mayor would like to add a few words. See them after the jump.]
Is this the FBI undercover? Probably not, so this must be a genuine Muzak vehicle. Can you believe that they’re still operating after all these years?
They’ve got ladders and everything. As seen recently on San Francisco’s Geary Boulevard:

Now this is what rocker Ted Nugent had to say about Muzak a while back:
“It’s an evil force in today’s society, causing people to lapse into uncontrollable fits of blandness. It’s been responsible for ruining some of the best minds of our generation.”
In fact, the Motor City Madman actually offered to buy the company for the sole purpose of shutting it down. Harsh.
But let’s hear from the Muzakians themselves:
“Music is art, but Muzak is science. And when you employ the science of Muzak: in an office, workers tend to get more done, more efficiently, and feel happier. In an industrial plant, people feel better and, with less fatigue and tension, their jobs seem less monotonous. In a store, people seem to shop in a more relaxed and leisurely manner. In a bank, customers are generally more calm, tellers and other personnel are more efficient. In general, people feel better about where they are; whether it’s during work or leisure time. Muzak is all this and more. That’s why we say Muzak is much more than music.”
O.K. fine. This incomprehensible MUZAK STIMULUS PROGRESSION CHART proves something, just not sure what that is:
Don’t stop believing, Muzak. Never stop believing.
All the Muzak channels, after the jump.
