MUNI Goes After the T-Shirts of a Harmless Local Blogger – The SFMTA Simply Can’t Manage Its Affairs

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

So Ed Reiskin went to Harvard so he could be a do-boy for Willie Brown / Gavin Newsom / Ed Lee?

It looks that way.

Hey, why isn’t the head of MUNI an elected position? Mmmm…

Anyway, here’s the latest. Our SFMTA / MUNI / DPT, speaking through the City Attorney’s Office, doesn’t like being made fun of, so they’re going after individual Zazzle T-shirt makers.

Read all about it here and here.

In related news, remember this one, about the MUNI* Death Spiral? Look to see who, along with Joe Eskenazi, wrote that.

In closing, MUNI sucks, even harder than you think.

*Man, the stuff hit the fan at MUNI after that bit came out. There was a big meeting presided over by the guy who preceded Ed Reiskin. Actually, that guy later claimed to have not even read that bit. Anyway, this epic meeting that never happened is now enshrined in local lore. Ask your favorite City Family member about it sometime.  

San Francisco’s Hottest New Website: ANYONE BUT ED LEE dot COM – aka #EdLeeNot4Me for Mayor

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Rigoberto Hernandez of Mission Local is all over this new website: StopEdLee.Com.

Check it:

“Mission District resident and blogger Kevin Montgomery, Greg Dewar of the N-Judah Chronicles, and former SF Weekly Colunist, Patrick Connors launched stopedlee.com listing four reasons to vote for anyone but Ed Lee. None of them are connected to any candidate in the 2011 San Francisco mayoral race, the website notes.”

#EdLeeNot4Me

“We have to beat Ed Lee on his own medium. Using millions in donations from out-of-town millionaires and billionaires, he has gamed social media to spread the deceptive message that he represents San Francisco’s best interests.

Let’s get the message out there that Ed Lee the next chapter in a 16-year-old political machine that has notgotten it done for SF. Join us in making #EdLeeNot4Me a trending topic right before Tuesday’s election.

Tell your friends and followers on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr why you are not voting for Lee. If you cannot think of what to say, copy and paste what we said—we won’t mind.

If you’ve already decided who you’re voting for, volunteer on election day for the campaign. And most importantly, VOTE!”

All right, get on it.

The Streets of San Francisco: SFMTA Rips Off Famous MUNI Critic Greg Dewar and His N Judah Chronicles

Friday, July 1st, 2011

This bus ad doesn’t say The Streets of San Francisco, oh no, it says The Treats of San Francisco.

See? (The fine print in the ad says that MUNI has permission from CBS to run to use the SoSF logo, so everything’s nice and legal.)

Click to expand.

Isn’t this ad kind of a rip-off of Greg Dewar’s N Judah Chronicles?

Signs point to yes.

Speaking of whom, here’s MUNI’s Death Spiral from Greg Dewar and Joe Eskenazi. (Boy, the head of MUNI at the time just flipped out, I mean, really flipped out over this bit in the SF Weekly from last year. He hosted a big meeting in response to this one article. It was epic, I’ve been told.)

Anyway, do you know what that “treat” is, the one referenced in the MUNI ad?

It’s the price increase what starts today.

Hurray!

Congratulations to N Judah Chronicles on Its Fourth Anniversary!

Friday, June 26th, 2009

Who turned out to mark the fourth birthday of the famous N Judah Chronicles in the prideful Inner Sunset district last night? Well, how about Matt Baume of Curbed SF and Sweet Melissa Griffin and Beth Spotswood and the Heinekin Girls and even chief MUNI flack Judson True (hey, let’s all hope lying about CultureBus pays more than telling the truth about CultureBus, ’cause telling the truth about the CB don’t pay a whit) and a host of others too numerous to enumerate.

Here’s NJC’s grand poobah Greg Dewar addressing the crowd last night on Irving Street near 9th Avenue at the Blackthorn Tavern. Chanted the mob,“Four more years!”

And here’s the NJ itself,  just a stone’s throw away from the party, rolling along in the wind and fog.
