As part of its punishment, it was barred from selling CA lottery tickets.
Well, looks like it’s back in the LOTTO biz now. See?
IDK, I don’t think California should even have a lottery.
Man, this is not how I’d cross wide, wide Geary, I’ll tell you:
The driver of the car heading inbound in the fast lane didn’t see these peds, so a passenger held out his arm as a way of apologizing, oh well.
The way to cross Geary would be to wait for reds at adjacent intersections OR to cross where there is a signal.
That’s what I’ve learned as a walker on the mean Streets of San Francisco.
Instead of going on a massive signal installing campaign, SFGov would rather promise you Pie In The Sky, a promise to repeal the laws of physics and human nature by the year 2024, you know, by the time that all the pols what voted for said Pie In The Sky have termed out, conveniently.
VisionZero they call it.
All these items espied near Fulton tell quite a story.
A sad story.
The junkie who breaks into your car at night doesn’t really want most of your stuff. The junkie can’t use most of it, so it gets tossed. Value = 0. So why does the junkie take it? This sitch isn’t good for you and it’s not good for the junkie.
First, it was all like this:
Get all the deets here.
You see I’m six-foot-one and a ton of fun, so things were a bit wobbly on the staircase going up, back in the day. Empty beer cans are what you’d find up there.
But now the Presidio isn’t a military base – there’s no need to have an observation tower for training recruits anymore.
Radio communications, that’s the present need on this ridge, and it’s The Future as well.
Here’s how things look these days:
This scene makes me think of the Old Days.

Here it is, a crop from your Western Neighborhoods Project, the OutsideLands.Org
“21 Hayes line streetcar on Fulton Street at 5th Avenue, with Safeway grocery in 1938.

Of course, the Safeway is now a Lifestyle Store, and it’s moved a few blocks out, and the 21 Hayes is a bus line now, and the 21H doesn’t make it all the way out to 6th Avenue no mo, but even so, this is pretty close, IMO.
This person never looked. This person shouldn’t be jaywalking:
But bygones, moving on, ever so slowly moving on…
…to this. Starting across Geary with a cane, waaaaaay too late:
Assuming you start when it’s legal, then tout le monde need to wait for you. But if you start too late then you’re just another jaywalker.
I start late, sometimes. But I pay attention.
That’s the difference.
Well here it is, a compendium, below.
I’ll tell you, right about now is generally when the board of directors of a typical organization would be holding an emergency meeting to assess, and then take action. But my experience in such matters is limited to non-Catholic orgs. Would these matters indeed go all the way up to the Pope, the Bishop of Rome, Italy? IDK.
