Here’s the promise, from Randy Shaw‘s “Uptown Tenderloin” initiative:
“The neighborhood is now being transformed into an exciting and desirable area where restaurants, theaters and other small businesses prosper, and low-income people of diverse ethnicities can still afford to live.”
And here’s the reality:
Mind you, these are studios in the high-crime Tenderloin area.
Does anyone think that “low-income people” of any ethnicity can “still afford to live” in the Tenderloin?
This is just part of the SFPD detail what follows Mayor Ed Lee about when he ventures into the corrupt Twitterloin.
As seen on Market Street at Sixth Friday AM:

Do I think the SFPD is far too obsequious when dealing with San Francisco Mayors?
Do I understand why the the World’s Highest Paid Cops are that way?
Can you spell obsequious without IOU?
No. Try it.
Am I happy that the current appointed Mayor (appointed by handsome man-child Gavin Newsom (IQ: 95), who, of course, got his start into politics by getting appointed by WIllie Brown) doesn’t have the SFPD drive a god damn SUV to Montana or someplace on the taxpayer’s dime?
Am I happy that the current Mayor doesn’t treat the SFPD VIP security detail as kind of a personal motor pool, like when Gavin Newsom would get picked up at SFO in the GM hybrid SUV shortly after other elements of the SFPD chauffeured the then “First Lady” (which really isn’t the right phrase since she wasn’t even married to the Mayor at the time – she was First Girlfriend, let’s say, you know, at the time) to and from, I’m srsly, Quince restaurant in the stretched Lincoln Town Car?
Five foot nothing, barefoot, and wearing white PJ’s in Randy Shaw’s corrupt greater Uptown Tenderloin Twitterloin area – she has the fight in her but she lacks the stuff she needs, you know, like reach:
So she spent most of this squabble caught by her hair, oh well:
Well, at least he didn’t Break My Window to get the purse out of this aging BMW:
After you see your gf’s purse disappear into Randy Shaw’s corrupt Uptown Tenderloin, all you can do is point as the perp flees. (Is that a moose tattoo on his now naked torso?)
The purse snatching definitely led to a brief cessation of hostilities:
And the, in the end, a swift sucker punch, you know, to say good-bye:
“Request for proposal for General Contractor Services for tenant-improvement build-out of a quick-serve kiosk restaurant, San Francisco Soup Company, in the food court of the Metreon, located on the ground floor at 135 4th St., San Francisco, CA 94103.

“There is a privilege to being white in this country. I’m not saying that if you’re white, you have a lot of power as an individual. But if you’re white, you might be more likely to find* a white President,** a white Senator, a white police chief. I mean I’m just saying, right?”
Have you been to college? This is exactly what it’s like.
I mean I’m just saying, right?
*No comprendo. Do not copy. Repeat transmission, Good Buddy. So if “you” aren’t white, then you’re less likely to find a white…
***I mean, I’m just saying, right?
UPDATE, from the Comments section – Twitter, Randy Shaw, the non-profit mafia, etc:
“sorry bout that, it seems out of context, but she actually wasn’t even asked about race, but rather gender relations…she brought up the race issue all by herself, – out of context
you might even find this even more strange, actually…but that’s still not the whole thing…the whole thing is 55 minutes long and it was a meeting at one of randy Shaws hotels, the hartland…in fact, it appears there’s quite a bit of questionable stuff in there, especially about the corrupt twitterloin tax break
notice how one of Randy Shaws clients specifically says that it’s ‘unfair to put people that are just homeless into a hotel like that full of heroin addicts, meth addicts and crackheads’ and how THC staff and Jane Kim completely sidesteps the question and takes it to another context:
[UPDATE 8-1-2011: As expected, the very same post that got put up and taken down Saturday AM, is now back in all its glory. How does little old Randy Shaw know way in advance when rallies will take place and how "large" they will be? Hey, is Randy Shaw a journalist? Okay, hold that thought. Now, is Willie Brown a journalist? Is your answer the same for both questions? Does Truth dance, does Truth sing?]
Sure looks as if a big “Run Ed Run” Rally for Mayor Ed Lee is scheduled for the steps of City Hall on Monday, August 1, 2011 at noon.
This is news to me, or at least it was until today’s BeyondChron post got taken down.
Seems as if City-subsidized “journalist” Randy Shaw jumped the gun this AM:
