Both the Jogging and Bicycle Paths of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Should be Resurfaced and Widened ASAP – JMO – PhotoFriday, January 8th, 2016
Consarnit, back in the day our Panhandle Bike Path was just eight foot wide. But then people started using it more, so it got widened to 12 foot. We should up that 16 foot, why not.
And on the Oak side of the GGP Panhandle, we should certainly redo the crazy wavy surface ASAP, and widening, well again, why not?
Oh what’s that, you’re waiting to get the irrigation installed? All right, well that’s already been taking a long long time, and one questions why we’re irrigating in the first place, and walkers and joggers are falling down all the time, due to this outrageous neglect from SFGov.

PROP F Fever Hits “West NoPA” – A Great Debate at USF Sponsored by Local NIMBY Org PRO-SF – Tuesday, Oct 27th 2015Monday, October 26th, 2015
Here’s the info – just try finding it online via Google. It’s hard.
And here’s what’s funny – if the only reason you can stay in SF and pay your mortgage is because you’ve been breaking our regs for, what, the past
decade or so eight years, well, maybe you shouldn’t be living here. Some ppl out in the west side operate illegal grow houses or cat houses and that’s how they pay their mortgages, but that’s not right neither, right? I’ll tell you, all Airbnb rentals the past decade in SF up ’til February have been agin the rules, right? And most of them rentals right now still are, right? So what kind of ppl are we legalizing here, one wonders.
And it’s hard to tell how our local millionaire property owners who live, and I’m srsly, west of north of east of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle will come out on the illegal hotel issue. One suspects that the West NoPa crew would generally be supportive of Prop F, but that’s just a guess…
Oh look, here are all the semi-native parrots of West NoPA what are flying to USF right now to parrot the Airbnb line:
Let’s hope dese boids are getting big bucks / stock options from the Airbnb. Let’s hope they’re not mere “volunteers” working on this most expensive of political campaigns…
Semi-Automatic For The People: The Armed Guards at the End of Haight Street – Whole Foods + McDonaldsMonday, July 6th, 2015
Sometimes, when you have a sidearm, all you need to do is grab your belt buckle and lean against somethin’.
The Man With No Name, at the West End of the Haight-Ashbury:
At the current time, there are handguns all over the intersection of Haight and Stanyan. Whole Foods has always had a large security crew here (some armed, some not, one supposes) and starting the past couple months or so, the McDonalds across the street now once again has an armed guard.
Do you think that’s groovy, Man?
Anyway, this is how things stand during the Summer of 2015
Wow, the Terms of Service (ToS) You’re Supposed to Read Before Entering Whole Foods on Stanyan is Pretty LengthyThursday, December 4th, 2014

“Please no shopping into your reusable bags?” Oh, I’ve done that. Didn’t know the term for it. I suppose you’re halfway to being a shoplifter once you start doing that, in the opinion of the (quite large) Whole Foods Security Squadron.
What else, oh, follow the rules or you might get banned from the store for five years, or something.
Read the whole list. I’ve never seen a lengthy ToS like this for a store…
