(ClearChannel cleaned up all this glass. which I hadn’t noticed, the next day, but this bus stop gets attacked often, oh well.)
Lemme just say I don’t understand/am confused by the following on this page:
“Community over Profits” [A Capital “P,” right, Comrades?]
“Because CleanPowerSF is not-for-profit…” [Our SFPUC is a not-for-profit?]
“Your choice will localize energy, create jobs and stabilize energy prices.” [Doesn’t PG&E “create” jobs too? “Stabilize?”]
“Small Premium, Big Impact” [Or Big Premium, Small Impact? Just saying.]
“SuperGreen pay the applicable Green rate plus an additional $0.02/kWh.” [SuperGreen – who dat?]
“That’s a small investment with big returns for the environment and the local community.” [Or extremely small returns?]
“Upgrade your service to SuperGreen…” [But it’s the same service though, right? It’s the same juice from PG&E, right?]
And what’s up with the rates for regular PG&E v. Non-SuperGreen?
So, best case scenario is that, after a monthly PG&E fee you gotta pay to NOT have PG&E, a “typical” bill will be $66.40, as opposed to … $66.40?
Note that I rounded the numbers there, to the nearest nickel. Speaking of which, why not round PG&E’s percentage up to 30%, you know, why not?
Hey SFPUC, your desks inside the windmill building in Civic Center cost $20 grand each? Hey, is that “sustainable?” Oh, yes, and no? Hey, how about financially?
So many questions about the CleanPowerSF…
Well, here’s the news:
“Competitive” means more expensive, right? Maybe not now, but next year, right?
Not that PG&E is so great…
…but I don’t think our PUC should be so proud of the low opt-out rate for its new program.
Anyway, just by doing nothing, you, the SFPUC customer, are “combating” global climate change. OTOH, if you opt out for the PG&E you’ve had for decades, well, you’re a horrible monster.
That’s the update.
You Know, the San Francisco Chronicle Has Always Been a Middle-Of-The-Road Publication – This is a Parked Delivery TruckTuesday, July 12th, 2016
So, if you park on the double yellow line, it’s OK?
I remember when they used to use big trucks, like this one driven by William Randolph Hearst III in an Examiner ad from back in the day.
Anyway, the driver stops in the middle of McAllister, drops off his load, and then idly chitchats with bodega operators while his minitrucks idles – this makes the block look like a crime scene, if only temporarily.
This is How We Live Now, in 2016…
Ferry Bocce: Historic OccupySF Site Now Used for Bocce Ball – A Playground for Children was the AlternativeFriday, June 17th, 2016
I’ve never seen this bocce court at the south end of Justin Herman Plaza used for league play, but it looks like somebody’s making a stab at it now.
This was in the middle of the day. serving alcohol to passersby?
And here are your sponsors:
Well at least they’re finally using this wasted space for something. Except for Occupy, this place has been a town for ghosts the past half-decade
A playground would have worked better here, IMO. They put one in at the extreme north end at Washington, yes, but what I’m saying is that a playground would have worked better here…
A Pickup Truck So Long It Requires an Expensive SFPD Police Escort – Life in This “World-Class” CityThursday, May 19th, 2016
IDK, filming something, prolly.
And the flat black paint reduces reflections, that’s what I’m going with.
But when you film in SF, you face a lot of costs. That’s what killed Nash Bridges after a few years and that’s what also helped to kill Trauma after a few months worth of shows got aired.
Anyway, we’re no Vancouver, that’s for sure…
Historic Koshland Mansion, Frisco’s Most Expensive Listing, is Taken Over by HandyCam-Toting Skateboarders – Another Indignity at 3800 WashingtonWednesday, April 27th, 2016
For one brief shining moment, some thought Taylor Swift would buy this long-empty fixer-upper up in Presidio Heights.
Then there was the art-thieving squatter – he’s imprisoned now, AFAIK.
And now this is how things looked last week:
I count five sk8tr boyz recording their tricks up there.
Look for the results on the YouTube.
Our poor, poor Koshland Mansion…
Just Saying, But Frisco Is NOT 49 Square Miles: Get Your Kicks in the 46 vs. “Shop & Dine in the 49”Wednesday, March 9th, 2016
First of all, let’s play a game of identifying the northernmost, southernmost, westernmost, and easternmost points of San Francisco. If you guess, you’re going to make mistakes.
Hint: They’re all islands, some are mere “rocks.”
All right, in no particular order, here are the answers:
Seal Rock, aka Saddle Rock
North Farallon Islands
How’d you do? Check here.
Now, add up all the San Francisco County land area amidst these points and you’ll get 46.something square miles. Sry.
Anyway, this is wrong:
So that’s your answer, 46 square miles. Oh, you want to round up to 47? OK. No but really you want to round up to 49, you know, for the poetry of it all?
Well, then why not round up to 50, or 100 square miles then?
Of course, back in the day, 49 square miles was a fair guess – 7×7 right? But the problem with that is geography. We were forgetting the Great San Francisco Bight, the part of SF’s northwestern corner that just aint there.
These days, of course, we have the tools to be accurate.

Rather striking, non, on a dreaded sunny day?
