Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred three score and six.
When Visiting Chinatown, Be Sure To Take a Selfie with a Banksy – “Peaceful Hearts Doctor” at 799 Commercial Near GrantWednesday, June 25th, 2014
Thusly. Strike a pose, mate:

Of course this shot was from back in the day, from back before the Black Paint Attack of 2013, which damaged the appearance of the famously peaceful heart doctor.
But a genuine 2010 Banksy is a genuine 2010 Banksy, right? So check it out the next time you’re on Eddy Grant Avenue – it’s electric!
Sure you can!
McKinley Statue Update: Fenceless and Defenseless, Graffiti Attacks Continue – Nevertheless, It’s a Meeting PlaceFriday, May 2nd, 2014
If you want to learn yourself about the William McKinley statue and the Golden Gate Park East End Girls and Boys who hang out at the eastern end of GGP, click here.
What do you see in this photo? Are you a realtor* who sees the graffiti or are you a dirty hippie who sees other hippies hanging out after riding their bikes?
(I see both, actually. And I don’t have any objections to the current situation, not being a NIMBY or a real estate broker myself.)
Anyway, local real estate interests and the silverbacks at RPD still want their damn “period-specific” fence to keep out the dirty dirty hippies and their spay paint cans.
I don’t know how you can look at this illustration and not chuckle, but they were serious about this.
Hey, RPD and the arts people, can you think of another solution?
*Lower case “r,” always.
Impressive verticality, relevant message, such graffiti:

It’s Bayshore, baby!
“Essentially the discarded skin of the 101 freeway - Bayshore Boulevard used to be the freeway, until the currently used “James Lick Freeway” was built in the 1950s.”
Here’s the Proof that the Real Estate Interests of the 94117 Have Given Up on the Mickinley Statue Fence in the PanhandleThursday, 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.
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:
On It Goes…
