Point/Counterpoint: Former Mayor Willie Brown Opposes Renaming SFO Havery Milk International for One Reason Only

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

“Supervisor David Campos is making a terrible move with his call to rename SFO for Harvey Milk.

WELL, THAT’S YOUR OPINION, ISN’T IT, WILLIE? HEY, HOW’S IT GOING WITH RENAMING 3RD STREET “WILLIE L BROWN, JR BOULEVARD” THE WAY YOU SO DESPERATELY WAN?. YOU KNOW, LIKE THIS:

OH, WHAT’S THAT? YOUR IDEA “BOMBED?”

WELL GEE, WHY WAS THAT? WAS IT DUE TO HOMOPHOBIA? NO. SEXISM? NO. RACISM? HEY THAT MUST BE IT, RIGHT? ALL RIGHT, GO ON, WILLIE.

If it makes the ballot and loses, it will be a disservice to Harvey’s memory.

NO IT WON’T. HEY, REMEMBER WHEN YOU WANTED TO RENAME SFO THE WILLIE L BROWN JR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT? HEY, THAT IDEA BOMBED TOO, RIGHT? BUT I’D BET YOU’D BE WILLING TO TAKE THE CHANCE ON A BALLOT, WOULDN’T YOU? YOU’RE LYING AGAIN, AREN’T YOU?

It will only create divisions within the city. Not because Milk was gay, but because renaming the airport after him makes no sense.

WELL, I DON’T KNOW. IT CERTAINLY WOULD MAKE SOME SENSE. THE QUESTION IS ABOUT WEIGHING THE PROS AND CONS.

Moscone Center is named after Mayor George Moscone because he negotiated the deal with various factions to get the place built, and a lot of low-income housing along with it.

WELL THAT WASN’T A GOOD IDEA NOW WAS IT? PERHAPS WE SHOULDN’T NAME ANYTHING AFTER POLITICIANS? AND WHY IS JFK AIRPORT NAMED AFTER JFK?

Harvey had no relationship with the airport. What Campos is doing is trying to heighten Milk’s symbolic stature as the liberator of gays.

WELL, IS THAT A CRIME?

It’s a mistake, and I hope enough gay leaders say so before this splits the town.

NO, WHAT YOU HOPE FOR IS THE WILLIE L BROWN JR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. WHY DON’T YOU JUST COME OUT AND SAY IT?

OH, AND IN NEWS FROM OTHER LYING POLITICIANS:

“I just want to make sure there is clear thinking about it, and the whole city family should be engaged in it.

OR MAYBE THE VOTERS WILL DECIDE AND THE “WHOLE CITY FAMILY” WILL JUST HAVE TO DEAL, HUH?

THAT’S THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING NOW. C’MON, THINK. HEY, WHAT ABOUT THAT LETTER HARVEY WROTE TO  JIMMY CARTER? WHY DON’T YOU PUBLICIZE THAT? OR GET BEHIND  SOME OTHER CANDIDATE? CAUSE, RIGHT NOW, THE WILLIE BROWN ED LEE POLITICAL FACTION IS LOSING ON THIS ONE.

JUST SAYING…

The Real Cost of Renaming SFO as Harvey Milk International Airport is Much More Than $250K – It’s Billions and Billions

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

The real cost of renaming SFO for Harvey Milk would be the losing the equity of the highly-recognized SFO “brand.”

What’s it worth? IDK, but it’s on a par with the annual budget of the City and County of San Francisco.

Check out the effort those crazy kids down in Millbrae make in order to curate SFO’s brand identity. To wit:

Like, go around the world and show people the letters SFO and they’ll tell you what it means.

SFO is a “world-class” IATA code, right up there with LAX and JFK, right?

Also, what if we kick-off an SFO renaming campaign for Harvey and the process gets hijacked by San Francisco Shadow Mayor Willie L Brown Jr.?

You know he wants something like that, right?

Real bad.

Just saying.

PS: Oh, and what would the new IATA code be? MLK? Well, that code is already taken, by someplace in Montana. And also, well, MLK, just don’t go there, girlfriend. If you wanted to say something like “SFO, An International Airport from Harvey Milk” or something like that, the damage would be lessened.

Which is the World’s Most Expensive Photograph? “Approaching SFO Over Presidio Yard” or “Rhein II?”

Better A…

…or B?

Hint: One is worth $4.3 million and the other is worth $0.0 million.

Oh well.

Speaking of which, does MUNI pay full market value for the land it uses up at the Presidio Yard?

I wonder.

And for the record, here’s your SFO approach cheat sheet:

OMG, OMG, OMG, It’s Back! Free Beer, Free Show at the Dos Equis Most Interesting Show in the World October 5

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

It’s ba-aaaack! It’s the Dos Equis Beer Most Interesting Show in the World and it’s coming back to town on October 5th at the Ruby Skye at 8:00 PM.

So, stop what you’re doing and get your free tickets right now, before they’re all gone.

See photos from past year’s efforts below. The deets for 2010:

Ruby Skye, 420 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 View map, Ages: 21 and Over. Price: $ 0.00

This fall, Dos Equis presents The Most Interesting Show in the World hosted by party aficionado, Andrew W.K. Featuring exotic acts cast from the most notorious parties and celebrations from around the world, this year’s show will deliver the excitement to 17 cities! Join Andrew W.K. with the likes of Hungarian escape artist, The Great Merlini, Persian burlesque legend, Cherie Lily, the incredible Ice Sisters and other indescribable acts of extreme entertainment!
 
I’ll tell you, the catch, if there is a catch, is that you and your friends might need to queue up (on the 400 block of Mason) early to get in / to get good spots. You see, I don’t know if  your printed-out tickets get you in for sure. And then the opening acts probably won’t start at 8:00 PM. It’ll probably more like 9:00 PM. But then again if you show up at 9:00 PM you might not be able to get in, see what I mean? So, take the extra time to commune with your buds with some free beer.
 
The line early on last year in the SoMA:

Sorry Visa, But Your New Black Card is Not the World’s Most Prestigious Credit Card

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Visa Inc. claims its new Black Card is “the world’s most prestigious and versatile credit card.”

Srsly, Visa? Haven’t you all ever heard of the Centurion Card from the American Express?  That thang is certainly more prestigious than your Black Card.

Visa, please correct your ad campaign. Forthwith.

Capture1

These cards are made with carbon, just like a rusting, broke down Ford Pinto.

Did Visa actually apply for a patent for the idea of carbon-fortifying these rectangular pieces of black plastic? Sadly, yes.

In Visa’s own words:

“For those who demand only the best of what life has to offer, the exclusive Visa Black Card is for you. The Black Card is not just another piece of plastic. Made with carbon, it is the ultimate buying tool.

The Black Card is not for everyone. In fact, it is limited to only 1% of U.S. residents to ensure the highest caliber of personal service is provided to every Cardmember.

Become a Black Card member today and enjoy our 24-hour world class Concierge Service ready to assist you with all your business, travel and leisure needs.”

And:

“The Black Card is made with carbon, creating a more unique card, guaranteed to get you noticed.”

O.K. fine.

If your sugar daddy and/or mommy ever tries to impress you by whipping out a Visa Black Card, you ought to end it right there and start yelling about how you “don’t want no scrub.”

Anyway, just don’t know what you’re thinking here, Visa. Using this new piece of plastic/carbon merely serves to show how somebody doesn’t have a Centurion, right?

In closing, hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Twitter Shootout – Are Gavin Newsom’s Tweets More Useful Than a Common Squirrel’s?

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Who has the more useful Tweets out there? Is it San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, with hundreds of thousands of Followers, or is it Common Squirrel, with an amazing 2,115 Updates already and thousands of Followers as well. Some feel the squirrel’s pithy postings are the “best thing to follow on Twitter.”

Let’s take a look and make a head-to-head comparison. First up is the prolific common_squirrel, click to expand: 

And here is Gavin Newsom’s effort, selected randomly:

By the Numbers, the Twitter Shootout:

1. Isn’t it _Tom Ammiano‘s_ Universal Health Care Program? Yes it is. +1 for Squirrel.

2. This entry conjures up the famous City Hall marriages a half-decade back. A timely posting of news. +1 for Gavin.

3. “If you are in D.C.” – that’s a big if, in’nt it? Nevertheless, this could be useful info for a few. Squirrel is going to need to pick up his/her game – ’cause merely relying on the other side to fail isn’t necessarily a winning strategy. +1 for Gavin.

4. Drawing attention to being on national TV – that’s a fair Tweet. +1 for Gavin.

5. Denying Miss California USA (people always leave out that “USA” part) her due, really? The People Have Spoken, so the only appropriate response is to have your people contact her people and book an agreeable date +1 for Squirrel.

6. OTOH, using Twitter to conduct the poll itself is a GUOT (Good Use of Twitter). +1 for Gavin.

7. See #6 Above. +1 for Gavin.

8. Does Shai Agassi really believe he’s going to save the world with his “battery replacement scheme?” His sweeping statements are redolent of Charlie Manson’s as well as other charismatic, messianic leaders’. Refreshingly, Squirrel lacks certainty that A Better Place is the only Path to the Future. Shouldn’t we save taxpayers dollars for more useful things, like subsidizing the real estate industry? A big +1 for Squirrel.

9. Again with teh Agassi? +1 for Squirrel.

10. Are 385,000 Followers really reading this message for just one person? All right, if that’s how Twitter works, that’s how it works. +1 for Gavin.

11. Again with teh Agassi? +1 for Squirrel.

Well, this one was a squeaker, but it appears that Gavin Newsom’s Tweets are more useful than Squirrel’s.

How’s that?
