That Hulking Cruise Ship at the End of the Street – MV Aurora Graces San Francisco, Briefly – Next Stop: Hilo, Hawaii

Friday, January 27th, 2012

The P&O* Cruises Aurora was just in town up near Fishermans Wharf at Pier 35 South for part of her 2012 World Cruise.

(Man, it must be tough running a cruise ship, with all the passengers having nothing to do on around-the-world trips except colluding on class-action lawsuits.)

Anyway, Bon Voyage, Aurora!

Will YOUR Post Office Be Shut Down? Bayview 94124, Visitacion Valley 94134, McLaren 94134, Civic Center 94102

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Here’s the news of the day, via the San Francisco Business Times: 3700 post office branches are set to be shut down by the USPS.

Here’s what’s on the chopping block in San Francisco:

BAYVIEW SAN FRANCISCO 94124
CIVIC CNTR P O BOX UNIT SAN FRANCISCO 94102
FEDERAL BUILDING SAN FRAN SAN FRANCISCO 94102
MCLAREN STATION SAN FRANCISCO 94134
VISITACION STATION SAN FRANCISCO 94134

Mmmm.

Now the Federal Building PO is just a little thing, sort of a secret for those in the know – no waiting there. And the Civic Center PO Box Unit, well that’s not really a PO anymore anyway.

So.

We’re going to lose three full-fledged POs and they all just happen to be in the southeast corner?

Two in the 94134…

…and one in the 94124:

Uh….

Uh….

WTF, USPS?

What’s that? You spent all your money sponsoring that drugged-up cyclist? All right, but this one is not going to go down well…

See the entire “Expanded Access study list” for California after the jump.
