The Reason Why Your “Diverse” Private Kindergarten Gets Less Diverse Year by Year – Am I a Kenny? – Oh, I’m a Kenny

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

‘Cause it’s hard to fit in, and the older you get the more you understand that.

So yeah, you might have a “scholarship,” but then you see the line of double-parked nannies, after school, every day, patiently waiting, some with ginned-up school-issued parking passes on the dash, in their Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismos or G-Wagen Geländewagens or even more umlaut-laden GL-Wagen Geländewagen, Luxuriöses and whatnot and then…

…you start to feel like poor poor Kenny McCormick…

…even though you’re not, not really, but then you start to drift away and maybe find another place to go to school.

And then your old school is less diverse at the higher grades, but it’s kind of too late to do anything about it now say the others.

Not complaining, just explaining…

If You Want to Start Renaming Things in Frisco, What About This AVENUE OF OPPRESSORS in the Richmond District?

Friday, August 4th, 2017

These photos show a couple blocks of 13th Avenue, but we don’t have a 13th Avenue because we call it Funston. So IOW, the 500 and 600 blocks of Funston:

Cabrillo benefited from the encomienda system that enslaved the Native peoples of the Americas. In Honduras, for example, he broke up families, sending the men to the mines for gold and to the forest to harvest materials he needed for ship building. The women and girls he gave over to his soldiers and sailors, presumably as slaves.

One down three to go. Oh, I see that the descendant(s) of Funston (you know they’re still around) have gotten to Wikipedia with some pro-Funston propaganda, so I can’t quote it. But how about:

Starr dismissed as folklore accounts claiming that two firestorms naturally swept through San Francisco after the quake. He noted that Funston had “assumed de facto control of the city” and decided within hours of the quake to fight fire with fire, despite having no experience in firefighting. “The army and a reluctant but bullied fire department seemed determined to destroy San Francisco,”

And don’t miss this artwork:

Balboa setting his dogs upon Indian practitioners of homosexuality (1594) engraving from the New York Public Library. The rendering was by the Flemish Protestant artist Theodor de Bry.

And who else, oh de Anza:

Governor Anza led a punitive expedition against the Comanche group of Native Americans.

Oh what’s that, you don’t want to rename everything, just that one thing that you really want to rename? Oh, OK then.

I was only just asking…

New Electronic Sign Literally Tells San Francisco Drivers to SLOW DOWN, SLOW DOWN, SLOW DOWN

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

See?

IMG_6728

At slower speeds, it tells you your speed.

I’m not sure what the limit is here. I was thinking that the sign might know WHEN CHILDREN ARE PRESENT or if it could know the limit based upon the day of the week / month, but now I’m thinking, nah, it prolly doesn’t.

Other signs will flash your speed at you when you’re going too fast or change the numbers to red, but this one equates one over the limit with 30 by telling all speeders to

SLOW DOWN

SLOW DOWN

SLOW DOWN

UCSF Popo Enter the Tenderloin – “UC Hastings Entering Public Safety Partnership with UCSF Police

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

I had missed this news, but you can’t miss all the new UCSF vehicles on McAllister these days. Changing things was quite a big issue earlier this year. Anyway:

“Affected members of the UC Hastings Public Safety officer’s unit have been presented various employment options if they meet required qualifications, as police officers, security guards, or security guard supervisors for the UCSF Police Department. For officers who do not qualify (or elect to not apply) for jobs with the UCSF Police Department or alternative positions with UC Hastings, the College will offer conscientious separation terms.”

So that’s that – the oldest and largest law school in the West is now a little closer to the UC Family.
