The Port of Oakland showed respect for the SF City Limits – can you see how the landfill project in the upper right ends abruptly? That’s the border. But the US military just didn’t care and it kept filling until it was satisfied. (You can see how the SF part looks different – it’s a wetter / greener area.)

Ans here’s another way of saying it – see our little homeslice?

Anyway, lots of people still don’t believe me. But you do, right, Gentle Reader?

OMG, Our Bloated SFMTA was Simply Too Busy to Process Faxed Citation Protests, So It Shut Off Its Fax Machine?

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Here’s your lede, buried:

“When Fixed began faxing its submissions to SFMTA last year, the agency emailed the startup to stop using their fax machine. When Fixed pointed out that it was legal to do so, the agency simply shut off their fax.”

All’s I know about Fixed is the first few posts here.

IDK, I was always skeptical of Fixed’s success percentage claims and, IMO, its employees / contractors should never have touched any official ticket placed on any car, but it’s sort of amusing to see how far our SFMTA will go to protect its big cash cow…

What the SFMTA really wants, in its dreams, is a household transit tax, what would cost you about $500 a year, whether you ride the MUNI or not, and then it wouldn’t have to begging for money as much, and then it wouldn’t have to pay so much heed to any random San Francisco Board of Supervisors Member, you know, fucking Supervisors…

Dream on, SFMTA. And until that day, WAKE UP, SFMTA:

Ouch, this one hurts.

Boy, Our SF “City Family” is Really Counting on Stealing the Oakland Warriors from Oakland – “LET’S GROW WARRIORS?”

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Is there anything wrong with leaving the Golden State Warriors in Oakland?

Anyway, here’s the scene in Golden Gate Park – I can’t imagine this arboreal/sports clothing line program “makes money” for our City Family, but rich like having fun too, and this is one way for them to do it:

Boy, the SF Marathon is Almost as Wacky as a Bay to Breakers – Oakland Warrior Juggler Dribbler, Firefighter, Die Hard

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Straight out of Oak-Town comes this Warriors Juggler – bounce toss toss, bounce toss toss. Stephen Curry here was in the zone.

And he doesn’t at all look like a money-hungry, anti-UCSF billionaire, but you never know…

And here’s the fireman, who might have been promoting an alcoholic drink – I couldn’t tell. But he did have the oxygen tank. And Die Hard here was wearing a marathon t-shirt from Europe. He kept on keeping on…

I was just passing through, but I’m supposing if you wanted to wait around for more wackiness, you’d find it here, at our annual San Francisco Marathon.
