Did a Rec and Park cart get stuck in the middle of the Panhandle again? Sure looks that way from this photo, ’cause as we learned from My Cousin Vinny, tire tracks don’t lie.
Instead of working on aesthetics all the time, why doesn’t the PRD work on tasks they’re supposed to work on, like drainage ‘n stuff?
Just asking, bro.
Rampant Baldism on the Streets of San Francisco: Meet the Schwalbe Kojak, a “Bald” Bike Tire from IndonesiaFriday, December 3rd, 2010

Now, you’re too young to remember but back in the day, there was a meme thing where this Telly Savalis guy would lick a lollipop and say, “Who loves you, baby?”
Ah, memories. Well, for dissing the “City by the Bay” in that link back in the ’80’s, we’re getting a little payback.
Or maybe this line of tires is what they call an homage. Irregardless, I don’t think he’d mind.
Who loves you, Baby, indeed.
[UPDATE: And look who’s at the top of my Twitter this AM – it’s popular area senior PR ad exec Kevin Kopjak – maybe his name has a similar derivation…]
And here is how that Historic Sugar House looks today:
That’s quite a change, huh? Looks like DHL Worldwide Express done moved in. (Which is apropos, since DHL got it’s start in San Francisco. Speaking of which, the “H” in DHL created DHL while he was going to UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall. (I’m probably still on their waiting list, oh well.) Read his fascinating life story about how he killed himself with a seaplane and also read about some suspicious acts by the people employed the aforementioned University of California here.)
Anywho, the graffiti eradication program is all documented right here in “Warm Water Cove Graffiti Vandalism Project 2007″ at SFGov.org. This pdf has it all, it even shows how the SFPD catches anyone who would dare throw some urban art on the empty walls.
The mellow artists were no match for the determined City and County:
I’ll tell you back in aught-seven, it was widely predicted that the graffiti people would come back with a vengeance. I know that there have been subsequent incidents, but the City is still putting enough energy into this project to keep the place graffiti-free.
Score this a minor victory for Mayor Gavin Newsom.
More deets after the jump.
