Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Jennifer Siebel Newsom Take a Strong Stand Against Jim Harbaugh over 49er Ray McDonaldMonday, September 15th, 2014
Well here it is, for Roman Catholic Jim “Due Process” Harbaugh, who’s just six or so years off of probation himself, on the subject of Ray McDonald:
“‘…zero tolerance’ are empty words…”
Yesterday’s press release:
**News release** Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Jennifer Siebel Newsom, filmmaker, and the founder and CEO of The Representation Project, joint statement on the 49ers decision to continue to play Ray McDonald
“The City and County of San Francisco and the entire Bay Area has long stood staunchly on the forefront of domestic violence awareness and prevention. That’s why the 49ers’ continued insistence on playing Ray McDonald during his ongoing criminal investigation is a painful affront to every victim of domestic violence and sends a troubling message to our community and especially our children that ‘zero tolerance’ are empty words, not real actions. In light of the increased public awareness of this issue in the wake of the horrific Ray Rice assault and today’s decision by the Carolina Panthers to deactivate Greg Hardy, we strongly urge the 49er organization we grew up revering to do the right thing — right now — and bench Ray McDonald, pending the outcome of his felony domestic violence investigation by San Jose law enforcement.”

Of course, if you want to head west on Fell on a bike at leisurely pace like 7 MPH, you’re better off on the sidewalk as opposed to the middle of the slow lane. (And, indeed, you’re probably best off on the multi-use path on the south side of Fell.)
But during the current Santa Clara 49ers winning streak, you have carte blanche to do whatever you want whilst showing your true colors on a victory lap.

New Warriors Arena to be Slightly Lower, Assuming It Gets Built in the First Place – Artist’s ConceptionTuesday, November 12th, 2013
So, unlike the disastrous America’s Cup and 8 Washington campaigns, the Golden State Warriors project is based around stuff that San Franciscans can actually benefit from.
So that’s a good sign.
Remember, the more you complain now, the better this deal gets for San Francisco. You the public are the bad cop and genial SFGov figurehead Ed Lee is the good cop. And of course the good cop won’t be able to get the best deal possible for San Francisco without the bad cop.
If Ed Lee doesn’t like this game, then he can just retire, right? Or go back to his old job the way he promised to in the first place, right?
It’s too bad that Oakland will lose its team.
