Samuel L Jackson Selfies Show Him Going from Glad to Sad on His Recent Trip to Beijing, China – Air Quality

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Here’s SLJ on a small, snake-free plane on his way to China:

“‘Bout to go wheels up from London to Beijing. Might have to get my slumber on!”

But when he got there, he was dissatisfied with the Air Quality (AQ) level:

“Even w/ lights, you can only see 2 1/2 blocks…maybe! AQ 312!!”

Poor SLJ!

Haight Street Whole Foods Offers Tiny “Charlie Brown-Ass” Christmas Trees for Sale – “Elf Trees” They’re Called

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

I believe the quote proffered by a passerby / loiterer was “sorry Charlie Brown-ass Christmas trees.”

At first I thought they were $30, but now I see that they’re just $20, which is fair enough, I suppose.*

They sell bigger Christmas trees as well.

Hey, will WF’s tree sale cut down on sales at longstanding tree lots?

Oh yes.

Anyway, Merry Christmas!

*Maybe I’ll buy one, we’ll see.

Huge Anti-Abortion Rally Coming to Civic Center January 21st: Walk for Life West Coast Has a New Starting Location

Monday, January 9th, 2012

The 8th Annual Walk for Life West Coast will start at Civic Center this year.

Will organizers lie about attendance by simply adding 5000 people to the previous year’s estimate as is their custom? We’ll just have to wait and see. Somebody will document the crowd overestimating, but I don’t know if it will be me this year…

Click to expand

All the deets:

“Due to a scheduling conflict, the Walk for Life will be unable to follow its familiar route from Justin Herman Plaza and along San Francisco’s waterfront to Marina Green. Instead, we will be gathering at Civic Center Plaza at 11:00 am for the Info Fair to be followed by the rally at 12:30 pm. At 1:30 we will start walking down Market Street to Justin Herman Plaza. There will be no additional events at Justin Herman Plaza.

We are excited about this new opportunity and believe that this new venue will give us the chance to grow our numbers. More information to come so please sign up for our email blasts to keep informed of these important changes.

HOTEL UPDATE: We have sold out of the rooms at the San Francisco Marriott Fisherman’s Wharf Hotel. We were able to negotiate a discounted rate at the Kabuki Hotel in Japantown (very close to the Cathedral) for $139/night. For further options, gohere.

FLYERS: Color flyers are now availble for download. If you would like to receive copies of the flyers, please send us an email with your address and how many you would like. Help spread the word!

Confirmed speakers include: Lori Hoye, Dr. Vansen Wong, Rev. Clenard Childress and Jacquie Stalnaker.

Once again this year EWTN will be broadcasting the event live via satellite on TV andImmaculate Heart Radio will be broadcasting the event live on the radio.”

Today’s Mayor Ed Lee Electoral Victory Lap Around San Francisco is Nothing But a Big F.U. to David Chiu

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Ah, let’s see what’s on the agenda today – oh it’s a tour of the City, a kind of victory lap to celebrate yesterday’s big news.

Mr. Mayor will drop by Districts #4, #7, and  #10 with  area Supervisors. Check it:

“Mayor Lee to visit Sunset neighborhood merchants along Irving Street with Supervisor Carmen Chu to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Sunset Super”

“Mayor Lee to visit West Portal neighborhood merchants along West Portal Avenue with Supervisor Sean Elsbernd to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Squat & Gobble”

“Mayor Lee to visit Portola neighborhood merchants along San Bruno Avenue with Supervisor Malia Cohen to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at North East Medical Services (NEMS)”

Fair enough, but oh, here’s another one – it’s in District #3, you know, the realm of Board of Supervisors President David Chiu.

“Mayor Lee to visit Chinatown neighborhood merchants along Stockton Street to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Self-Help for the Elderly”

You notice anything? That’s right, Supervisor Chiu isn’t invited to a merchant walk in his own district.

Do you think that this is a mere oversight on behalf of the scheduling secretary?*

I don’t.

This is WillieBrownRosePakEdLee saying Foxtrot Yankee to poor DC for, among other things, Speaking Truth to Power a few months back.**

Oh well.

President David Chiu (along with Dr. Malcom-esque District #1 Supervisor Eric Mar) in mayoral campaign mode last week.

Soon, if not already, he’ll be in supervisorial campaign mode once again. What do WillieBrownRosePakEdLee have in store for David Chiu for 2012?

Well, we’ll just have to wait and see…

*Will Ed Lee be the first San Francisco Mayor since the 1990′s to NOT have sex with a young, attractive, female, SFGov mayoral scheduling secretary? Why yes, you can bank on that. How refreshing!

**Play us out, Managing Editor James Gardner:

“’So, Ed,’ began David Chiu, recounting a private conversation he claims the two had shortly before Lee reversed his longstanding insistence he wouldn’t run. ‘You told me you didn’t have the fire in the belly. You’d looked in the mirror and said you didn’t want to run … but you didn’t know how to say no to Willie Brown and Rose Pak.’

OK, there’s a genuine gotcha. Ouch.”
