I’m not up to speed on this issue.
If I were to be in a situation involving a missing family member, would I be well-advised to hire a PR flack? IDK..
And does Mayor Ed Lee typically say that SFGov is to blame for a death at such and early stage? No he doesn’t.
Here’s the press release, just issued. (Sorry, no OCR.)
UCSF is finally getting off its ass and doing something about all those eucalyptus trees and this is the response?
I cry foul.
Now, leaving aside the fact that the Mount Sutro “cloud forest” aint a cloud forest and it aint a forest* neither, UCSF does stuff.
What do the whiny millionaire NIMBY neighbors of UCSF do? Nothing.
Of course, there are impoverished hippies who similarly oppose UCSF doing anything to manage this area, so I’m going to look into this when I can.
But the assumption is:
WHY SHOULDN’T UCSF BE ABLE TO MANAGE ITS LAND?
See? UCSF does stuff. What do YOU do?

*What is it really? A stand, a grove, a wood? (Which is the most insulting?) Alls I know is that Christopher Robin used to play in the Hundred Acre Wood, not the Hundred Acre Forest, right?
I’ll tell you, I haven’t seen this much drifting since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

To the right of this accident scene is Octavia Boulevard.
And to the left, a block away, is Octavia Street.
And in the middle, you’ll see NIMBY Green with a newish Mercedes Benz CLS sitting on top.

You see, Octavia used to be a regular old street until Redevelopment (a bad idea from the 20th century) and the failed Octavia “Boulevard” experiment (a bad idea from the 21st century) came along.
Anyway. this is what results when “activists” are valued more than traffic engineers…
I don’t care what they say on the Yelp.
What’s that, a bad billing department? Crummy elevators? Difficult street parking?
Points cheerfully conceded.

You’re too young to remember the era before the Internet, but back in the day, MTV was all we had.* So it was a BFD when the MTV came to town to stage a reality show back in 1994.
Pamela Ling was one of the characters. She played a medical student, which wasn’t hard, because, you know, she was a med student at the time.
Anyway, she became a doctor at UCSF and that where she labors some 18 years later.
Oh, and there was Puck, who pretended to be a bike messenger.
Man, some real bike messengers didn’t like him. That’s what I recall.
*Well, not me. Cable’s for suckers, these days and back in the day. I think my friend would videotape this show and then we’d watch it off of the VHS.
