It doesn’t get any more iconic than this

Look for this Airbus 330 just after 9:00 AM, over the Financh, heading west with a little south thrown in – that’s what you can see lately:
Now back in the day, people told me, “Don’t fly Hawaiian.” But geez, zero passenger deaths over the years and decades. Hawaiian is a winner airline and this jet, an Airbus 330-200 widebody, is a winner aircraft – better all around than any stretched-out Boeing 757 narrowbody that, say United, might choose to get you to the 808 State…
Jupiter Descending, Over a Benihana – Along with la Luna y Venus – Conjunction, What’s Your Function?Monday, June 22nd, 2015
Check it, it’s the moon together with Jupiter, the Gas Giant, up high and Venus, the Evening Star on the right, all converging, equilateral trianagularily, over a Benihana Japanese Steakhouse.
As seen during Summer Solstice 2015:

The answer will amaze you, or not:
This is the sun, as seen from a span of our troubled San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
It looked like the moon though.
That could be the troubled Star Princess, which should be norovirus-free these days. Let’s hope so. And if it’s not the Princess, well, let’s hope it’s norovirus-free as well…
Berkeley Contractor Randy Shaw’s Adoration for His Paymaster Has Gone Over the Moon – How Can Anyone Take Him Seriously?Thursday, May 8th, 2014
Let’s see here, who in San Francisco takes Randy Shaw seriously?
1. CW Nevius (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)
2. San Francisco Magazine (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)
I think that’s it. (Nobody in SFGov takes him seriously, not really.)
Now here’s the latest:
And here’s part of it:
“Lee’s ‘Neptune Shot’ (a planet far further from earth than the moon) is off to a good start.”
So, let’s get this straight. Being appointed Mayor of San Francisco for nine years (effectively), by breaking a promise about being only an “interim Mayor,” is something similar, in some way, to sending a manned mission to planet Neptune, an ice giant?
Does Randy Shaw think that the moon is a planet? I don’t think so, but I can’t tell for sure.
Is BeyondChron really “The Voice Of The Rest?” No, it’s the voice of a white government contractor who lives in a large house in the Berkeley hills.
Is BeyondChron really the “Best Local Website” per the SFBG? No.
Well then why has that tagline been displayed there for years and years? IDK
San Francisco Viral Video: An Uptown Tenderloin Thief Patiently Waits to Steal a MacBook Air – Blonde vs. BrunetteMonday, April 7th, 2014
This one’s gone viral, this coffee shop video.
Watch the last part first and then watch the whole thing over again:
Note the thief’s ridiculous get-up. Is she really a blonde? Is that a wig under the beanie hat?
Note her dime store purse – see how she asks her original mark to watch it for her, you know, to establish a trusting environment?
And of what use is a MacBook without its expensive power cord?
But I’ll tell you, millions of people will end up seeing this video of the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, up there at Post and Taylor.
The victim feels that SF is “an amazing city otherwise.”
“UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.
Case Number: 140281005
I am a freelance iOS developer. I live and work in San Francisco. A total tragedy happened to me yesterday. My virtual limbs (aka MacBook Air and iPhone) were stolen at a local coffee shop on Post st. and Taylor st. in SF Downtown area. Months worth of creative work I stored on my device will be lost forever, if I can’t catch this girl and get my computer back. Click here for new New Updates
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND HELP GET MY COMPUTER BACK!
Video found at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbrzOLh8Eb4
Location: Post & Taylor
Time of Crime: April 4, 4:35pm (The time in surveillance camera is 12 hours off)
At 3:20pm, This blonde thief comes into the coffee shop and eyes my computer.”
And now a word for the trolls:
“Thank u thank u. All my friends and good Samaritans out there who are helping me in my effort to get my computer back. Had a few people on YouTube and Reddit who claimed they know her. Yay!
The thief still remains at large. Any tips will be appreciated.
On the side note, too many trolls are flooding the posts with hateful comments and are distracting people from finding this thief. Most of those people are putting blame on me. Calling me stupid and deserving to have these expensive electronics stolen from me. I know I shouldn’t have left my computer unattended but I had false sense of security because I go to the same coffee shop every day and I know every single employee and regulars who were there when the crime happened. But how can a decent person defend an apparent thief who came in with one motive in mind, which was to steal someone’s computer. The thief sat there for an hour looking around to find her target and did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportune moment. This could happen to anyone the moment you drop your guard a little at a public place. I’m determined to find this thief for the principle of the matter and hope that no other coders/designers/any other techies around the Bay Area who love their computer more than anything fall victim to this bottom feeding scumbag bitch.
One more note, I got all my codes backed up unlike some trolls bashed me about. What I lost is some of my illustrations and most recent personal files.”

District Five Recovery: LONDON CALLING – “You think I give a fuck about a Willie Brown at the end of the day?”Wednesday, November 7th, 2012
All Hail London Breed:
“You think I give a fuck about a Willie Brown at the end of the day when it comes to my community and the shit that people like Rose Pak and Willie Brown continue to do and try to controls things. They don’t fucking control me – you go ask them why wouldn’t you support London because she don’t do what the hell I tell her to do. I don’t do what no motherfucking body tells me to do.”
Hey, you think maybe she’s watchedYouTube, just a little?
(Hey, you know, the two times when Mayor Ed Lee did a little independent thinking since Willie Brown and Rose Pak got him appointed Mayor are when he appointed the fairly stupid Christina Olague to replace Ross Mirkarimi and when he advocated for the complete non-starter “stop and frisk program.”Perhaps he should just do what he’s told 100% of the time instead of 90% of the time?)
In any event, HERE COMES LONDON BREED:
