IDK, man. I like my corporate buses all black and sharp-edged.

So what’s up what’s up with this? Check out the text up front – “friendly?”

I think I want off of this ride.

(I prefer planes)

Look, It’s the Yale Box, From Bauhaus to Our Car

Staring at this poorly-placed decal in my rear-view would drive me nuts, but I’m not a Yalie…

What’s This, the ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY Has a Scholarship “Raffle” But Only for Children of SFFD Workers?

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

All right, let’s see here, let’s say I’m a Fire Inspector at, IDK, the SFFD Inspection Section of the Bureau of Fire Prevention and I’m a union member and I’m a breeder, with chil’rens, expensive ones, not-so-bright kids with so-so high school grades.

Now wouldn’t it just be a dream come true to enter my teens into the Great AoA Fire Union Scholarship Raffle? I hope I win, I hope I win!

And oh, what’s this, my job is to make judgment calls when I inspect Yet Another AoA Building? Mmmmm…

Are these scholarships handed out each year? IDK. Does the 500-word essay matter at all? Not that I can tell. Is this a four-year free ride? I think so, so long as the yoots keep their grades up. But note that everything’s at the discretion of the AoA, so maybe if the AoA decides it doesn’t like the SFFD so much next year, it will pull the scholarships? IDK.

Hey, do DBI workers get a scholarship raffle for their kids too?

Oh, what’s that, you’re living in the projects and you’d like a shot at a free scholarship too? Well, let’s see, are either of your parents pulling down six figs as an SFFD firefighter? No? So, no soup for you.

Mmmm…

In other news, when will we change the name of Van Ness to Academy of Art Boulevard?
