This gesture conversation with an Interceptor IV jockey went on for a while. I don’t think the SFMTA’s new “customer” was pleased with the transaction:
I know that the PCOs “make money” for the City, but you’d think that part of the money they “make” would be used to fund their pensions / healthcare for life. You know, instead of sending the bill to The Future.
Someday, SF will get some de facto pension reform going.
IDK. I’d need somebody to spell out all the rules.
Anyway, this skateboarder was prolly a tad too aggressive to be in compliance with Frisco’s rules, whatever they are…
Insert “sliver” building here, right in the middle, just to the left of Geary:
1481 Post is like 8 Washington, and yet not like 8 Washington…
Spot the Missing Building: Motorcyclist’s Polished Helmet Offers a Fish-Eye View of the Western AdditionMonday, August 4th, 2014
Take a close look at this motorcyclist’s helmet on Geary – in between the two tall buildings, you can see the coming construction site of 1481 Post.
Dude gives off a Hank Schrader vibe:
Some people who opposed the 8 Washington Wall on the Waterfront project just might support a tall spire on the top of Cathedral Heights, right?
I think so.
Anyway, all moto helmets should be chromed, huh?
All the deets on this “emergency” cleanup that will occur today, July 21st, 2014
“There is a lot of trash littering the streets of Japantown following the massive crowds of 100.000+ visitors this past weekend for the J-Pop Summit and Ramen Yokocho Festival. If you are available, please join other concerned members of the Japantown community TONIGHT as we pitch in to clean up the trash on the streets. We’ll be meeting at Japantown Peace Plaza starting at 6pm and will provide disposable gloves and trash bags. Any help or additional cleaning supplies or equipment you can contribute would be greatly appreciated.
Event organizers are unable to completely clean up the mess, although they are providing steam cleaning for the sidewalks where ramen vendors were situated.
Let’s take care of our community together and clean up Japantown! Thank you so much to everyone coming to help tonight.”
This news comes via Akit:
Look at these poor lost souls on Geary staring towards the west in a futile attempt to spot the next inbound #38 Geary.
You can tell when things get bad at a MUNI stop when people just plop themselves down out on the street on the stop itself.
Is Geary a “livable street?” I have no idea. And actually, it doesn’t matter if this is how the SFMTA does its primary function. Should SFMTA directors be boasting about their junkets to “other cities across the globe?” I don’t think so. Hey, it’s headshot day! Hold it, hold it, hold it, say “cheese!” Snap.
Would SF be better off without the relatively inconsequential “Sunday Streets” program if it could get a functional MUNI in exchange?
I think so.
Would SF be better off without Cheryl Brinkman on the SFMTA board?
I think so.
Here’s another example, from 2012:
SFMTA director Cheryl Brinkman said that she supported the proposal because she has been considering the reverse situation. “How would we defend making parking free on Sundays if we’ve been paying all these years?” she asked rhetorically.
OK fine, but then in 2014 she voted to make parking free on Sundays. Oh well.
And is this true? I don’t know:
Mayor Ed Lee apparently has no concern over conflicts of interests where Ms. Brinkman is concerned. Her husband’s company benefits directly from the North Beach tunnel project, and she has economic ties to the SFTMA and the SF Bicycle Coalition and the other “non-profits” that profit from the city’s many contracts from managing housing to street calming and car sharing.
In any event, the Directors of the SFMTA don’t seem to be concerned at all about making MUNI work better using the money we already give them. The SFMTA doesn’t need more money, the SFMTA needs to manage the money we give it more better. IMO.
