Is this to thank the feds for all the pork over the years? Or a way to get tax and fee payers to like the MUNI just like 1% more? Or a way to play with a new feature of buses?

IDK. But I aint never seen this, in all my years…

International Incident in Chinatown: Elephant Flag Appears to be Much Larger than Neighboring US and PRC Flags

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

I don’t know my US Flag Code, but I’m thinking you shouldn’t have your jumbo elephant flag flying at the same height as neighboring national flags.

So, to fix things, you gotta shrink the jumbo flag or embiggen* the PRC flag, then you gotta fly the oliphant flag at a lower altitude, and while you’re at it, make sure your PRC flag looks natty instead of ratty, you know, the way it looks now…

* A perfectly cromulent word, right?

Presence of Run Ed Run’s Victor Hwang Mars Tonight’s SFPD Hate Crimes Symposium in the Castro

San Francisco Police Sponsor Hate Crimes Symposium
11-111

On Thursday October 13, 2011 the San Francisco Police will sponsor a Hate Crimes Symposium. This symposium will be held at the San Francisco LGBT Community Center Rainbow Room located at 1800 Market Street, 2nd Floor from 7:30PM to 9:30PM.

The symposium will be an informational presentation followed by a Q&A format. The event will be held during National Coming Out Week and one day after the anniversary of the death of Matthew Shepard on October 12, 1998. As the Federal Hate Crime Statue “Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 (18 U.S.C. 249)” was named after Matthew, it’s a poignant time of year to host this discussion.

Agenda of presentation will be:
* Deputy Chief Denise Schmitt to welcome attendees, discuss the Chief’s LGBT Forum and introduce panelists
* US DOJ Attorney SUSAN BADGER to discuss the US DOJ’s role in prosecuting hate crimes
* FBI Special Agent MELISSA PATRICK to discuss the FBI’s role, resources and limitations
* SFDA Asst District Attorney VICTOR HWANG to discuss how cases are prosecuted and why some are kept at the local/State level while others become Federal cases

* SFPD LT. TERESA GRACIE to discuss the police department’s role and how SFPD leverages with the FBI and works cooperatively with them
* SFPD Chief’s LGBT Community Advisory Forum to discuss the importance of crime reporting, resources and support organizations for survivors of hate crimes
* Moderated Q & A from the audience and answers from specific members of the panel or responses from all panel members as appropriate
* Final closing comments from panelists
GOAL OF THE EVENT: To establish the Forum as a publicly known entity with a defined mission of representing the LGBT community City-wide to the SFPD and Chief Suhr directly.
