Lobos Creek Doesn’t Look Very Frisco at All

Wiki has a critical stance:

Broken pipes also leak raw sewage into the creek, causing a pool at Baker Beach and Lobos Creek where children play to be the most contaminated in the Bay Area.[5]

I would say, AT TIMES most contaminated, sure.

(It can’t be so so contaminated all of the time, right? Else our ER’s would be full, right? I mean, people swim in these pools on Baker Beach…)

2014 Flashback: “FORTY Fuckin’ NINERS”

2014 seems such a long long time ago these days:

And speaking of flashing back, the ribald T-shirt is Joe Montana-approved, so there’s that.

The Signage Where Lobos Creek Drains onto Baker Beach Says What Now? – Something About Water Quality?

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

FIrst of all, I think our Feds could do a better job with signage here, at Baker Beach:

And second of all, I think the sign should say that this water is generally OK for kids to play in/around, except for times after it’s been raining. I think.

And there’s this:

San Francisco and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which has jurisdiction over Baker Beach, are working with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on monitoring studies in an attempt to locate the source of the coliform, fecal coliform and enterococci detected where Lobos Creek meets the ocean. “It’s a spring-fed creek. We don’t know what’s causing it,” said Michael Kellogg, the supervising biologist for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. “Runoff is not an issue at Lobos Creek, which is percolating ground water.”

Anyway, this is the sign I can remember seeing, but it’s gone now…

Instead of Concentrating on the 7th Game of the World Series, Mayor Ed Lee is Playing Ping Pong at a Political Event?

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

In the words of the great John MalkovichWTF to that:

“…fundraiser for Evan Low is happening tonight in SoMa from 6-8 PM! With an open bar, amazing food, a live DJ set, and Mayor Ed Lee playing ping pong, this is an event not to be missed.”

And this official fundraiser graphic is odd, certainly, and “500 DOLLAR BUY IN” seems very “off-message.”

Oh, there’ll be some TVs on that the Mayor Airbnb can glance at, perhaps in between sets with Ron Conway? All right.

(Hey, who’s Evan Low – what does he have to do with San Francisco?)

No wonder Senator Mark Leno is ahead in the polls, already, in next year’s mayoral race…

[UPDATE: And here it is, as advertised, incredibly.]
