Some people don’t survive the Tenderloin, of course:

Let’s see here, who in San Francisco takes Randy Shaw seriously?
1. CW Nevius (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)
2. San Francisco Magazine (Maybe not a few years back, but these days, certainly)
I think that’s it. (Nobody in SFGov takes him seriously, not really.)
Now here’s the latest:
And here’s part of it:
“Lee’s ‘Neptune Shot’ (a planet far further from earth than the moon) is off to a good start.”
So, let’s get this straight. Being appointed Mayor of San Francisco for nine years (effectively), by breaking a promise about being only an “interim Mayor,” is something similar, in some way, to sending a manned mission to planet Neptune, an ice giant?
Does Randy Shaw think that the moon is a planet? I don’t think so, but I can’t tell for sure.
Is BeyondChron really “The Voice Of The Rest?” No, it’s the voice of a white government contractor who lives in a large house in the Berkeley hills.
Is BeyondChron really the “Best Local Website” per the SFBG? No.
Well then why has that tagline been displayed there for years and years? IDK
This one’s gone viral, this coffee shop video.
Watch the last part first and then watch the whole thing over again:
Note the thief’s ridiculous get-up. Is she really a blonde? Is that a wig under the beanie hat?
Note her dime store purse – see how she asks her original mark to watch it for her, you know, to establish a trusting environment?
And of what use is a MacBook without its expensive power cord?
But I’ll tell you, millions of people will end up seeing this video of the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, up there at Post and Taylor.
The victim feels that SF is “an amazing city otherwise.”
“UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.
Case Number: 140281005
I am a freelance iOS developer. I live and work in San Francisco. A total tragedy happened to me yesterday. My virtual limbs (aka MacBook Air and iPhone) were stolen at a local coffee shop on Post st. and Taylor st. in SF Downtown area. Months worth of creative work I stored on my device will be lost forever, if I can’t catch this girl and get my computer back. Click here for new New Updates
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND HELP GET MY COMPUTER BACK!
Video found at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbrzOLh8Eb4
Location: Post & Taylor
Time of Crime: April 4, 4:35pm (The time in surveillance camera is 12 hours off)
At 3:20pm, This blonde thief comes into the coffee shop and eyes my computer.”
And now a word for the trolls:
“Thank u thank u. All my friends and good Samaritans out there who are helping me in my effort to get my computer back. Had a few people on YouTube and Reddit who claimed they know her. Yay!
The thief still remains at large. Any tips will be appreciated.
On the side note, too many trolls are flooding the posts with hateful comments and are distracting people from finding this thief. Most of those people are putting blame on me. Calling me stupid and deserving to have these expensive electronics stolen from me. I know I shouldn’t have left my computer unattended but I had false sense of security because I go to the same coffee shop every day and I know every single employee and regulars who were there when the crime happened. But how can a decent person defend an apparent thief who came in with one motive in mind, which was to steal someone’s computer. The thief sat there for an hour looking around to find her target and did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportune moment. This could happen to anyone the moment you drop your guard a little at a public place. I’m determined to find this thief for the principle of the matter and hope that no other coders/designers/any other techies around the Bay Area who love their computer more than anything fall victim to this bottom feeding scumbag bitch.
One more note, I got all my codes backed up unlike some trolls bashed me about. What I lost is some of my illustrations and most recent personal files.”

You know Twitter, it’s not too late to pay your taxes under the rules signed into law by Mayor Gavin Newsom in 2004. You know, just put it into SFGov’s General Fund where it belonged in the first place. How much are we talking about here, a $100,000,000 or so? I mean, you left a lot more than that on the table during your recent IPO, right? And then you could amend your federal returns and then you wouldn’t get so much static from the locals. And then you could also do your little charity efforts, you know, in addition to paying your fucking taxes* like everybody else.
*I’m sorry, unpaid Twaxes.
All the deets on TLMade:
Here’s the pitch:
TLMade is a social enterprise centered on bringing out creativity, producing quality products, and creating jobs all within the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. Through the support of City Impact, our purpose is to transform lives through discipleship relationships, and create community through art and work, while creating a sustainable business.
Oh, and here’s a why we exist video, explaining how the Tenderloin District is “300 times more crowded than the rest of San Francisco,” which, you know, is absurd. City Impact, you’re off by a couple orders of magnitude there, which, you know, is a lot.
I’ll tell you, the marketing for the NeMA Building is strange, man.
And the people behind it are the strangest to hit town ever.
Now it’s time to “meet The Designer”
Don’t click to expand
Oh wait, somebody Photoshopped Soviet rocket engineer Sergei Korolev, the so-called “Chief Designer,” into the shot.
Aw, that’s not right!
Now here we go, the real shot, the Chief Designer of the NeMa: “Step Inside the NEMA North Tower Two-Bedroom Model with Interior Designer Liza Evans.”
But who are the other people, the dramatic people? IDK.
All right, now let’s sell some units here:
“Q: Name 3 Feng Shui tips you’d give someone moving into the 2 BDR+Den model floor plan in the new North Tower.”
I’ll tell you, Old Market Street didn’t have any of the feng shui.
Good luck in the Twitterloin, NeMA!
I bought at NeMA
I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you’ve seen me before
I’ll tell you why.
It’s because east-bay government contractor Randy Shaw is in the tank for Mayor Ed Lee.
So whenever Mayor Ed Lee changes his position on some issue, Randy Shaw just might very well put on his cheerleader uniform (it still fits!) and start waving his pom-poms.
“All San Franciscans should cheer Mayor Ed Lee’s plans to return to Sunday free meter parking.”
Is Randy Shaw a “journalist?”
“San Francisco’s Tenderloin is the city’s last remaining working-class neighborhood. And it is the only residential neighborhood in the city without any residential parking program.”
Is that true? NOPE!
“Tenderloin residents cannot park in front of their apartments or SRO’s…”
Suffer the poor SRO residents who can’t park for free all day long right in front of their buildings like a rock star! East Bay resident Randy Shaw weeps for them.
“Free Sunday parking should be sacrosanct.”
All right Randy, you know what we should do? We should poll all the mansion dwellers of Berkeley, CA and then use the results to determine parking policy for San Francisco, why not?
And Randy? Why not work on spending our money better?

Perhaps this was the problem:
For more than 100 years the San Francisco Travel Association has worked on behalf of its partners to promote San Francisco as the destination of choice for conventions and leisure travel. The Association is an outgrowth of the San Francisco Convention and Tourist League, a non-profit, local business association founded in 1909 to reclaim the City’s position as a world-class destination in the wake of the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire.
San Francisco Travel continues that mission today, aggressively marketing and selling San Francisco to attract visitors. San Francisco Travel is a private, not-for-profit, 501(c)6 membership organization, headed by a Board of Directors made up of 45 business leaders from various companies, elected by the membership. Additionally, in 2003, the Association established a 501(c)3 foundation to raise scholarship funds for students enrolled in local hospitality management programs and to produce educational programs.”
