Is MUNI getting ready for its 100th Anniversary celebrations?

When Stan and Kyle are leaving the Foley family’s house, Mr. Foley tells them to marry an Asian woman to avoid having ginger children, saying “I know a guy who’s marrying a Japanese woman very soon for just that reason.”

The Oldest Police Car in the World: Still in Service for the City and County of San Francisco, CA, USA

Friday, July 1st, 2011

On duty in the corrupt Twitterloin,* a 1980′s-era** Ford LTD Crown Victoria, still operational, idling, with a driver just waiting for something to go down.

As seen at Sixth and Market, June 2011, close to the location of the recent Pride Weekend Shooting what sent a handful of peeps to SF General:

And believe or not, this brick was the updated LTD Crown Vic, with “improved aerodynamics.”

Keep on trucking, policeman.

*Hey, do you know who signed the horrible, terrible, horrible, so-called San Francisco Twitter Tax into law back in 2004? I’ll give you just one guess, muchacha. It was the same dude what spent the better part of 2010 railing against the so-called San Francisco Twitter Tax. Isn’t it ironic, dontcha think?

**Truth be told, this rig could have been made as recently as 1991, and actually, it looks to be in great shape. Still, it’s a least two decades old…

This Fell Street Manhole Cover Has Seen It All Since the 1960s – How Long Will It Last?

Monday, May 17th, 2010

There aren’t many things from the 1960′s that work as well as they day they were made.

When will this person-hole cover near Divisidero wear out?

Born: October 2, 1969. See that, no fudging of the birthdate, it’s right there, for All to see. How refreshing! (The fact is that if you we’re born in 1970 or thereabouts, you’re middle-aged – welcome to the club.)

(It says PG&E on it. Shhhh…..)

How old is San Francisco’s oldest manhole cover? No one knows…

The Tadich Grill Reopened Today for Lunch, As If the Fire Never Occurred

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

See? About a dozen or so early birds were knocking on the door of the Tadich Grill this morning, looking for a meaty lunch despite yesterday’s dramatic flue fire. (For some reason, the MSM has this fire at 11:20 AM, but in fact it was on, manifestly, at 11:00 AM.  This particular mistake is trivial, but typical. Once one MSMer makes an error and that error gets past an editor (and why wouldn’t it, really?), it’s as if it were etched in stone, forever unchangeable, enshrined, perpetual. Oh well.)
