I think things were a lot more wholesome at the Pacific Stock Exchange Building when it was the Pacific Stock Exchange. You know, back when Kevin Bacon filmed that Quicksilver bike messenger movie in 1986 before you were born. It went a little like this, with KB acting as a besuited yuppie stock broker at the PSE at Pine and Sansome.
You see, back then, everybody wore clothes and open outcry was the order of the day.

The dude on the left is Ghiberti and I’m pretty sure that that’s Donatello in the blue cap.
You know, when I see all the “improvements” what have come to the Mid-Market since Willie Brown stooge Ed Lee worked to undo the tax signed into law by Willie Brown stooge Gavin Newsom in 2004,* I think, wow, how much better would things be in the Mid-Market if Mark Pincus had donated $100,000 to Mayor Ed Lee (you know, instead of just $50,000) so that the City and County of San Francisco would have then “invested” $3.5 million into Zynga (you know, instead of just $1.75 million).
In closing, please remember that all social problems can only be solved through investments in real estate.
*Yep. Gavin Newsom the Tax Raiser, the Job Killer. It was a different era.

If Mayor Ed Lee is All About Creating Tech Jobs in San Francisco, Why is His Website from a D.C. Firm?Wednesday, August 10th, 2011
A fair question, one might think.

Oh, and since I have the floor, was former Mayor Gavin Newsom a “Job Killer” when he signed the notorious and now-dead Twitter Tax into law in 2004? I think so.
I mean, didn’t we have stock options and tech companies back in 2004?
Yes we did.
I’ll tell you, there was never anything too much wrong with the Clinton-era Lexus SC400 / Toyota Soarer. The 1UZ-FE engine inside these rigs was built to last so there’s nothing stopping these vehicles from rolling into the future, excepting for the small stock wheels they came with.
The owner of this ride is saved from that embarrassment by a set of aftermarket wheels, 24 inchers if I had to guess.
See? You can’t say these wheels are too small, that’s for sure.

This car is totally ready for the twenty tens, certainly.
(But don’t go crazy and try to use 26 inch wheels. You want to make sure your car still can turn of course.)
