Here in Frisco, we now have thousands of smaller-but-still-quite-prominent FORD logos all over the place for Ford Motor Company’s FordGoBike rental bike service. I think I’d rather have a beefed up patrol at Ocean Beach, where sometimes a half dozen people drown in a year.

Anyway, this is How Los Angeles Does It.

SFPD “Horse Mounted Officers” in Traffic – A Herd on Kearny – What’s Changed in 166 Years?

Friday, February 20th, 2015
