Julian Guthrie, the Oracle for Oracle’s Larry Ellison, Thinks That Larry is “Funding” the America’s Cup – WTF?

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Oh poor Larry Ellison!

Apparently, having the taxpayers of San Francisco fund his boat race debacle is taxing his nerves.

Per sycophantic Julian Guthrie:

Larry talked to me candidly about the challenge of working with the city. So if he wins again, I would guess that unless the city comes up with a lot of money to keep the cup here, it’s going elsewhere. Larry’s not going to keep funding it himself. Personally, I can’t imagine that there would be an America’s Cup in San Francisco again.”

Now, does Larry have an official spokesmodel? (I don’t think so. Else Larry might have issued a statement after the death of Andrew Simpson.) So I guess Julian Guthrie is serving in this capacity? OK fine.

Uh, Larry Ellison/Julian Guthrie, don’t you realize that the City of San Francisco is funding the 2013 America’s Cup? 

So, Larry Ellison, it’s you who owes us money, not the other way ’round.

That’s Issue One.

Issue Two is this: Julian Guthrie, you’ve ridden this douche canoe so far upriver that you’ve lost touch with reality. You have access, but what have you done with it?

Kaboom! MUNI Bus Engine Blows Up, Spilling 32 Quarts of Oil All Over Geary

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

This was the scene today in the Inner Richmond on Geary Boulevard – artic 38 Geary bus #6243 had its biodiesel engine spill its guts on the street right in front of the Mel’s Drive-In. That shiny black stuff isn’t coolant, it’s 32 or so quarts of motor oil. It got tracked around a bit by impatient drivers.

Click to expand: 

The mechanic sent to help got started spreading sawdust with a quickness so the oil wouldn’t get into the sewer system. He was looking forward to the hazmat team showing up, it appeared.

Maybe the engine threw a rod or something. It’s soul is probably already up at the MUNI service yard in the sky.
