That heavy-duty chain and tiny U-lock probably outweigh this wooden push-bike:

Does the kid wear the chain bandolier-style when s/he’s riding? That’d be sweet…

Presidio Trust Executive Director Craig Middleton has the news, below.
A few changes for the Board:

All the deets, after the jump.
Remember that whole thing with U.C. Hastings (the largest and oldest law school in the West) getting into it with the Christian Legal Society? Well, it’s over, with Hastings winning in a 5-4 decision.
(That means that there will be one less thing for incoming Dean Frank H. Wu to worry about when he takes over on July 1.)
The flag of Victory, or something, flying above The Tower at 100 McAllister:
The Supreme Court of the United States affirmed the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, et al., signifying an important win in the country’s highest court for the College’s policy on recognition of student organizations and for higher education generally.
In the ruling authored by Justice Ginsburg, the decision stated: “Compliance with Hastings’ all-comers policy, we conclude, is a reasonable, viewpoint-neutral condition on access to the student-organization forum.”
“We are very pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision. The College’s intent has always been to ensure the leadership, educational and social opportunities afforded by officially recognized student organizations are available to all students attending public institutions. The Court’s ruling validates our policy, which is rooted in equity and fairness,” said Leo Martinez, Acting Chancellor and Dean, Hastings College of the Law.
Justice Ginsburg delivered the opinion of the Court, in which Justices Stevens, Kennedy, Breyer and Sotomayor joined. Justices Stevens and Kennedy joined the majority opinion in full and filed concurring opinions. Justice Alito filed a dissenting opinion in which Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia and Thomas joined.

I don’t know, I think they could have figured out a way to have Pride Weekend and the World Cup at the same place at the same time this A.M.
Or, in other words:
They were still setting up this stage when the action started in South Africa:

Fans forced indoors tried to make the best of it, craning their necks as if they were in the front row of a Metreon movie theatre:
(Of course, batting practice precluded AT&T Park’s JumboTron from showing the contest.)
Fans arriving at Civic Center this morning were told to go to “some bar” to catch the match. One fan announced that he was “mega-bummed.”
You don’t see too many bikes around there, but you sure see a lot of busted locks near the bushes. Do thieves just dump these things there on a regular basis for some reason? Apparently so.
