I think it’s an eagle:
I can’t tell, and that’s sort of my point…
Leaving you with this
“It doesn’t matter whether a cat [PET FOOD STORE] is white [LOCAL] or black [A CHAIN], as long as it catches mice.”
AKA WallyPower 118, AKA Wally 118.
This thing gets 15 gallons to the mile.
As photographed by Paul Kaplan at Gas House Cove in The Marina on January 2, 2015:
And look, it super-impressed the SFMOMA in SoMA a decade back:
“The WallyPower is … being honored by the San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art as the sole boat in its major architecture and design exhibition, “Glamour: Fabricating Affluence,” which runs from October 9 2004 to January 16 2005.”
And hey, did thing get pulled over by the US Coast Guard last year? I think so.
That’s your James Bond Villain Yacht In SF Bay Update.
It’s hiding in plain sight!
First things first, you tell me how big a deal this is:
And don’t niss this part:
“Theoretically speaking, I think they then become the same campaign,” said John St. Croix, director of the Ethics Commission.
Kaboom. Did an effort (from Janet Reilly, or some other Reilly)…
…lead to this…
…almost four long years later?
OBSERVATIONS / QUESTIONS:
1. Why does big news always seem to come out post meridiem on a Day of Frigg, you know, like on a Friday evening? Funny that.
2. Could this situation explain why Mark Farrell nominated (law student(!)) Katy Tang as interim Board of Supervisors President?
3. Is Mark Farrell going to serve out his second term? IDK.
4. If he doesn’t, who’s going to replace him? Mmmm…
The election that District 2 held four years ago was narrowly lost by Janet Reilly, but I can’t see her ever getting appointed D2 Supe in today’s political environment.
Now, what about the people who came in third and fourth, the people who myabe could have / should have formed an ANYBODY BUT JANET ranked-choice voting troika / three-way with Mark Farrell?
Meet Ivy Leaguer Abraham Simmons:
Does he still live in the District? IDK.
Now meet Stanfoo-educated Kat Anderson:
I’m thinking either of these two attorneys could slot right into the job.
You know, if necessary.
Here’s what people have been talking about over the weekend:
Agenda – December 16, 2014
I suppose we’ll find out more tomorrow…
Check the Yelp.
Let’s take a look here, aging Rolls Royce* on the left and lots of stalled cars ahead, starting at the 2000 block of Chestnut – this is just another day in the Marina Landfill:
Oh, here’s the culprit:
And here’s the payload, trying to hide behind a passerby.** Hey, take your time, Coca Cola!
Do the vaunted “planners” of San Francisco have a plan for this kind of thing? Oh no, you all just don’t want to deal?
Don’t you think this kind of situation lowers your credibility, Planners?
And oh yes, Prop E 2014 itself. Well, all the money coming in from out of town certainly has had the effect of making certain local institutions look foolish, that’s fo sho. There are pros and cons to it, of course. Direct intake of liquefied sugar certainly can be a factor in getting the diabetes, but there are others too, right? Perhaps Dr. Scott Wiener will help you work on those after the election…
*That would be your Old Marina, you know, Facie Terraemotus. Now make sure you don’t say nothing bad about Saint Joseph DiMaggio, the Patron Saint of the Marina, in front of Old Marina – they’ll get super pissed off. But, you know, before Joltin’ Joe had left and gone away, he was known for being a big jerk on Chestnut Street. Yelling at barbers for no reason, stuff like that. There’s an appointment system, Joe – what makes you so special? Anyway, area Supervisor Mark Farrell remains a big fan of DiMaggio, for some reason…
**That would be your New Marina, you know, Post Terraemotus.
