Yakking on a Cell Phone While Driving, the SFPD, and You: The Meaning of “Primary Enforcement Authority”

Friday, June 20th, 2014

SFPD officer to woman driving this pony car, after handing her a citation:

“Why don’t you do me a favor and stay off the phone?”

Enforcement. The police have primary enforcement authority for a violation of this law. That means that an officer can pull you over just for this infraction.”

San Francisco’s Church of Primary Colors

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

Here’s a colorful building in the Western Addition / NOPA area of San Francisco. It’s not really a church, the cross is just a telephone pole. The colours are sort of red, green and yellow, anyway.

It makes a nice complement to this nearby building.

Keep on painting, San Francisco!

[UPDATE] Some have noted that these colors aren’t actually primaries. A quick consultation with Channel One’s Sir Mix A Lot-esque Technicolor EP from 1986 confirms that techni-red, techni-blue and techni-green would be more apopro-priate.

Artist’s conception:

Finally, we have the true Church of Primary Colors. The one shown at the top is is merely a church of secondary or tertiary colors at best. So, that’s all cleared up now.

The Primary Colored Houses of San Francisco’s Inner Richmond District

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

When it comes time to paint your house, consider using only the three primary additive colors - red, green, and blue. But don’t mix them or anything. That would be like cheating.

Building Full of Graffiti No Match for Caterpillar 385c L UHD

Friday, December 5th, 2008

This is the scene today at the old Public Health Service Hospital in Presidio. All that unauthorized graffiti is being terminated with extreme prejudice by a giant yellow Caterpillar 385c L Ultra High Demolition Hydraulic Excavator with green MP30 Primary Pulverizer Jaws.

What will the kids over at phsh.org make of this?

Peace Mom Cindy Sheehan Campaigning at the Steps of San Francisco’s City Hall.

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Cindy Sheehan and one of her intrepid supporters at the main entrance of City Hall during today’s primary election:

(She had at least two other boosters in the area talking with potential voters at this very moment.)

Cindy has been running against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the past eleven months, to the consternation of some. Back in the day, one wag called pushing for impeachment of George W. Bush the “Dumbest Move the Dems Could Make.” Shirley Golub and Cindy Sheehan obviously disagree with that.

But Nancy seems to be weathering this storm well:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in her 10th term, easily beat back local Democratic activist Shirley Golub in San Francisco’s 8th Congressional District. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Pelosi had 89 percent of the vote and Golub had 11 percent. Peace activist Cindy Sheehan is making plans to challenge Pelosi as an independent in November but was not on Tuesday’s primary ballot.
