The range of dese boids has increased a lot since I first saw them on the Filbert Steps some 11 years ago:
Speaking of which, they still hang out there, but they aren’t as approachable as back in the day:

“3442 21st St,
San Francisco, CA 94110
Experience the pinnacle of San Francisco living – be inspired by bridge-to-bridge views from this trophy property atop the Liberty Hill Historic District. This grand scale Marina-style building sits on a 30′ x 114′ lot and features two full-floor flats and a two-level garden apartment (unwarranted). The home is detached on 3 sides providing abundant light and a serene sense of openness to each of the units. The top 2 floors feature over-sized, light-filled rooms, hardwood floors, crown molding, and wood burning fireplaces. A lush rear garden, abundant storage, workshop and parking for 3 cars finish this home perfectly. Located at the crest of Fair Oaks, the home is dramatic from the entry facade to the panoramic views from each level

Here you go, start here.
And now check it out:
Is that a legal space? Nope.
Now let’s talk window tinting for the driver and front passenger windows.
Just raising the issue.
Looks pretty dark to me.
OTOH, he _did_ just buy naming rights at SFGH – so those are your pros and cons…
Your pet-store Cherry-Headed Conures certainly are handsome animules (see below), but our Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill don’t really belong in Frisco, not really.
So the Hooded Oriole takes the crown
Here’s one [oh, if you want to add your comment to all the others, use this link] at Golden Gate Park’s Stow Lake from, IDK, a decade ago? This male has a blush of orange, as is typical for this time of year – they generally have more of a pure yellow color at other times:
Now here are your beauty champs from the 415’s Import Division:
A friendly pair in the Presidio.
They love to fly…
and eat flowers.
Look to the skies…
Well, here it is:
Um, but I think Bill Gates is the philanthropic alpha dog, right? And others in the Bay Area have given more as well, and they did it, um, more quietly.
This is part of a coordinated push from Benioff’s PR people. One supposes the San Francisco Chronicle is too hostile a journalistic environment for this type of message, so San Fran Mag and the San Francisco Bidness Times will have to suffice
All right, here we go.
1. Don’t just look at the title, read all or part of this bit here:
This is how others perceive you, MB. Is this perspective totally wrong? Is it from Crazy Town?
2. Now here’s MB in his own words:
“They are using the Ellis Act during this unbelievable boom time, to toss everyday residents out of their homes. I think is unfair and I think it has to change. I think that our government, our industry leaders and everyday citizens — all three stakeholders — need to come together in a conversation and change that. I think these buses — which if you hang out in the Mission, [they come] every five minutes — they’ve got to be massively regulated, we have to get them off our streets”
All right, Marc. Well, why not just throw a couple hundred grand at every Ellis Act evictee in SF County? You could afford that, easily. I “call upon” you to do it, how’s that? And there’s a reason why we have the Ellis Act – it helps to make rent control constitutional. Do you know that, MB? And since when do you care about the Ellis Act, MB? You’re a follower and not a leader, huh MB? And since when are the streets of San Francisco your streets?
3. Here’s his 1-1-1 plan. Hey Marc, I call upon you to upgrade this to the 5-5-5 plan. C’mon! I’ll hector you the way you hector Zuck. Let’s dream into action. I’m the best person in philanthropy because I say I’m the best person in philanthropy! It’s as simple as that.
4. Sean Parker. Whoo boy, aren’t you supposed to temper the Billionaire Boys Club, Marc? Isn’t that your role? No, you’d rather add fuel to the fire, you’d rather encourage them?
“Amazing post by Sean Parker. One of the great visionary leaders of our time. I could not agree more with his view. http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/27/weddings-used-to-be-sacred-and-other-lessons-about-internet-journalism/
Here’s what you could have told Sean Parker, you could have told him that having a wedding like that in that location is HARD. It takes a lot of work, which is why most people don’t attempt something like that. But why do a half-assed job on it, why didn’t Sean Parker know enough to do things the right way? He’s not stupid, right? He just lacked perspective. Kind of like you, MB.
5. Mission Bay fiasco. Oh, that’s right, you’ve moved on, after all that bluster, you’ve moved on. Fair enough, enough said.
6. America’s Cup fiasco. Why not call upon your great pal Larry Ellison to pay our general fund about $11,000,000?
7 Twitter Enterprise Zone. Why not call upon Twitter to pay its taxes under the old rules? Shouldn’t Twitter “give back” as well?
Well, those are a few recent things ever since you became almost famous by giving big bucks to UCSF the first time. People applauded you for it, as did I. But you, Marc Benioff, aren’t the King of Philanthropy. Not yet, anyway.
So it’s sort of funny to hear you spout off like this.
(But oh, if you want to start doing something, why not start with Jimmy’s Old Car Picnic, which has recently been fee’d out of existence by the very government you so admire. Or why not do things like that in addition? You know, instead of criticizing those who don’t line up behind you like ducklings just because you ask them to?)
All right, get up to speed here and then check out demiurgic Chris Roberts right here in the San Francisco Examiner.

See how that balances out?
Actually, I don’t think these ads are necessarily pro or anti semitic.
But I didn’t see how the prior ads were “anti-gay.”
On It Goes…
Are you up to speed on this one?
Laird Harrison of KQED has the deets on the original “My Jihad” campaign.
Then some lady spent money on ads making fun of that campaign. An example can be found here.
But then the SFMTA responded by quoting Maya Angelou since it couldn’t figure out any different way of responding to pressure.
Which, at the time, wasn’t clear to me because Maya Angelou is still alive, right?
So now, I see this ad and now I understand:

OK fine, a mystery solved…
