I don’t know, doesn’t look like the Return of Nevius to the 415 is helping him all that much. But, as always, You Make The Call.
Start by checking out Chuck’s latest three-dollar-per-word effort right here.
Item The First.
1. Wasn’t it obvious from the get-go that San Francisco Supervisor Sean Elsbernd could get his MUNI pay reform concept on the 2010 ballot if he tried hard enough? Yes it was, so your Hail-Mary-Pass-Pays-Off trope is inapropo.
2. Is Elsbernd really ”showing a great deal of political courage to take on this [purported] confounding sacred cow?” No, he is not. If this proposal came from somebody like Eric Mar, then you could fairly call that ”showing a great deal of political courage” or if Elsbernd were proposing something that the police or fire unions really, really, really, didn’t want, you could fairly call that “showing a great deal of political courage.” Sean vs. MUNI workers – that fight doesn’t show political courage at all. See how that works, Chuck?
3. Wasn’t Elsbernd hisself in favor of the proposition that birthed the second-highest-pay-in-the-land deal back in aught-seven? Yes he was. So, he was for it before he was against it, right? Do you realize this Chuck? Or maybe this issue is too nuanced for your simple-minded pieces? Actually, Sean could probably explain and then you could do his bidding all over again, you could carry water for your minority faction once more. Wouldn’t that be nice?
4. “Trash talk” should involve something about “your mama” or some similar objet de risée. Saying that the Board of Supervisors is “woefully out of touch” is simply repeating the Party Line that comes from your faction all the time. Here is what trash talk is – something like this.

Item The Second.
1. So, you know for a fact how what trash got where in lily-white Russian Hill? No you don’t. Sorry. Calling people you don’t know “criminal masterminds” or “lunatics” based on a single, biased source - is that your journalism?
Item The Third.
1. Actually, you can give the name of that popular sushi place out in the Avenues, whether or not it appears to have a name on the front. It’s called Tekka and it’s at 537 Balboa Street at Sixth Avenue. Easy, see?
2. And actually, you can give the name of that popular sushi place out in the Avenues, whether or not the owner gives you persimmon. It’s called Tekka and it’s at 537 Balboa Street at Sixth Avenue. Easy, see?
You are failing your probation already, Chuckles. If you don’t start to fly straight, we might send you back to the 925, or at least to a half-way house in the 510.
Try harder, C.W.!
