What do you call these, pocket doors?

Hey BART! Are you up to speed on this?

Imagine installing these automatic safety doors at just one station, like at Powell. It would be an implementation nightmare, just saying.

(OTOH, those cool-looking exposed bulb chandeliers, well putting those into a BART would be a snap…)

Anyway, hop to it BART/MUNI – get on this, like stat.

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Well, this photo doesn’t show a real bullet train, you know, whooshing past Mount Fuji or anything, but it does have a so-called “Baby Bullet” down at the bottom – that’s the best I can do at this time.

You know, San Francisco is the most corrupt large city west of Chicago, probably, but you wouldn’t know it by solely looking at paramedic response in the 415. I’ve never seen dysfunction from this part of the “City Family.”

The Crazy Windmills of Pier 23 Plus Those “Free Leonard” Banners

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Our Seemingly-Always-Muddy Golden Gate Park Panhandle is Quite Muddy These Days, As Per Usual

Monday, December 27th, 2010

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.
