Here’s the Proof that the Real Estate Interests of the 94117 Have Given Up on the Mickinley Statue Fence in the Panhandle

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

I’ll tell you, I don’t know why local real estate interests have such sway over what goes on in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle, but that’s the way things are.

And I’ll tell you further, I don’t know why local real estate interests ganged up on the mostly harmless Panhandle Bandshell, but they did, oh well. So that’s the background.

These days, the Eye of Sauron has fixed its gaze upon the east end, upon the McKinley Statue. It wants “period-appropriate fencing” around the whole deal, like this:

As you might remember, there was a big push for The Fence last year, detailed here.

But if you’re trying to get popular support for an iron fence, you have to leave the graffiti on and not even try to clean things up until you get your goddam fence, right?

So the above shows how things looked in the autumn of 2013. I allege that the people who wanted (and still want!) the fence decided to not clean things up in order to better make the case for the fence.

Anywho, the fence concept got put on the back burner late last year, obvs, so this is how the statue looks these days, more or less:

Postulation: The People Who Want a Fence Around the McKinley Statue in the Panhandle Have Stopped Cleaning Up Its Graffiti

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

You see, because they’re wanting to make the case for putting up a fence, right?

So, it’s better to leave the graffiti up until our City Family gets what it wants, right?

We’re through the looking glass, people!

The Current State of the Graffiti on the Golden Gate Park Panhandle McKinley Statue – Fence Coming Soon?

Friday, November 15th, 2013

And actually, there’s a bit more on this statue since this shot was taken a few days ago.

You know, if I wanted to put a fence up around this statue, I’d probably stop cleaning up the graffiti until I got my fence, just saying.

How Racist is the San Francisco Association of realtors? Well, Chinatown Doesn’t Appear on Its Official Map

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Now I’ve seen maps what eliminate San Francisco’s troubled Tenderloin district – that’s nothing new.

But here, our San Francisco Assoc of realtors (“REALTORS,” heh, like they’re special or something) makes room for the SRO Duchy of Randy Shaw but it omits Chinatown entirely.

Now, our SF Association of realtors could get away with this iffin Chinatown were a part of the Nob Hill district, but Chinatown isn’t a part of Nob Hill. It’s near Nob Hill of course, but it’s not a part of Nob Hill.

Appears as if rich white people don’t like the idea of living too close to C-Town…

Hey little kid, do you think that that might be a little, you know, racist, just a little?

Ah, thought so.

But don’t ever change, SFAOR [cough, transfer tax increase, repeal of Prop 13]. 

Just keep on keeping on.

The San Francisco Association of REALTORS® Takes Another One on the Chin

Monday, October 27th, 2008

To start off, the somewhat cheesy ALL CAPS and the circled R registered trademark symbol come from the website of the “san francisco association of REALTORS®.”

There was a rally at the home office in the Civic Center / Hayes Valley neighborhood the other day. Hundreds of enthusiastic people showed up, including Ted Gullikson, Ross Mirkarimi and Robert Haaland. They were supporting the supervisorial campaigns of Eric Mar,  David Chiu, and John Avalos, while at the same time opposing the campaigns of Sue Lee, Joe Alioto Jr., and Ahsha Safai.

That’s the gist of it. More details here.
