Leaving the poor The Richmond resident circling the block looking for a parking space:
That’s Life In The Suburbs..
Hey look, it’s Erick “Rockclub” Brown and his goat named Deer, straight outta the Florida Panhandle.
All the deets:
And you know People Magazine? Well they have a Pets Section now. It’s called “PeoplePets.” Srsly:
All right, let’s bid adieu, as Erick and Deer strut through a four-on-four pickup blacktop game in our Panhandle:
Take a look at the ballers – click to expand if necessary. They all have the same HEY-BRO-GET-OFF-THE-COURT-WHOA-A-GOAT EXPRESSION, IMO.
Bon courage, Erick
Bon courage, Deer
READER NOTES: Are you aware of the Growing Urban Goat Movement? Check it:
Sarah Hawkins breeds and sells a specific variety of miniature goats. “The Nigerian Dwarf can be for pets and for milk,” says Hawkins, “and for eating weeds – they’ll eat yellow star thistle.” Hawkins owns Castle Rock Farm in Vacaville. Most of her customers live in San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland where it’s legal to keep goats in backyards.
And hey, you know who loves urban goats? SFGov, that’s who. Read up our even-toed ungulate laws here:
“Keeping two or less female goats on private property is legally allowed in San Francisco for the exclusive use of the owner’s family. Keeping more than two female goats or any number of male goats and other hoofed animals (e.g. Horse, mare, gelding, mule, burro, sheep, cow, etc) requires appropriate approval and stable permit according to the San Francisco Health Code. Goats can also be temporarily allowed on public projects for weed clearing and fire hazard abatement activities by special permit with the agency landowner.”
Oh, I have apologized properly yet?
All right, I’ll say “sorry” again.
I couldn’t really tell where it started and where it ended yesterday – all number of blocks were blocked off for one reason or another. Hey, what if Sunday Streets changed the map and just used up a single street? There’s an idea.
Hey now, Airbnb was there, trying to head off Prop F with all its billions:
(I think the logo looks better upside down.)
Here’s what’s going to happen – Prop F is going to pass, and then life will go on, and you’ll still be able to Airbnb, either as a tourist or as a room letter.
And then you’ll look back and say to yourself, you’ll say, “Boy, Airbnbing aint what it used to be…”
One day somebody laid down the black background and then later on somebody put in the white lettering, perhaps on Monday or Tuesday:
I guess they wanted to notify people at each and every intersection.
Special Bonus: Kings Things:
– RPD says the Golden Gate Park Panhandle isn’t in Golden Gate Park. I disagree. Like, is the Florida Panhandle in Florida? Oh yes it is. But I suppose we could make a 51st state by cutting Florida into two states, one called Panhandle and the rest called Florida, but that would be kind of stupid. Anyway, that’s what RPD has basically done, but, like I said, I disagree.
– And why is the surface of this path near Oak so decrepit? Because that’s the way RPD likes it. Rec and Park could put in a new path now and then get working on their long-promised irrigation project later, but it don’t want to. Also, aren’t we in a drought? Why not let’s forget the irrigation and let the Panhandle go natural? Just asking.
Here it is, from the San Francisco Department of the Environment:
So, if you power your Nissan Leaf all-electric car or ZERO all-electric motorcycle with clean Hetch Hetchy hydroelectricity, SFGov is saying that your commute to work isn’t “sustainable.” OTOH, if you ride in a diesel MUNI bus, your commute is “sustainable? OK, maybe.
Hey, what about the method that SFGov uses to fund retirement pay and medical benefits for all its employees, past, present, and future? Is that sustainable, SFGov? Oh no? OK, SFGov.
And if one of my bikes gets a flat tire, have I ever said to myself, “Oh no, it’s an emergency!”
But one supposes that if you had some free money to spend and you wanted to appeal to your bo-bo constituancy, you’d offer the same program.
ASSIGNMENT DESK: Well, this one writes itself. The hardest part will be finding an appealing subject who’s actually used this program already. Take some photos of the victim, you know, probably a her, and make sure have the Financh in the background in the photos, and then throw in a few quotes from a Department Head, and BAM! – you’ve got yourself a Story.
*At some places down in the valley, if you get sick at work your Free Ride Home will be so, so baller, you’ll feel like a billionaire, you know, temporarily anyway, and you’ll tell all your friends about it, and they’ll be so impressed.

Of course back in ’49, you know, 1849, some people were still calling Kearny Street La Calle de la Fundacion – it was the start of the grid system of streets we know today.
Anyway, not much has changed since the founding of the SFPD 166 years ago – a time-traveling gold miner from back then would have no problem understanding this aspect of The Future:

I’m not sure just how serious this woman was. Maybe this was a Truth or Dare situation…
Anyway, here she is, walking down Polk in the 94109, in the part of town I call the Tenderloin, to the contrary of Randy Shaw, an aging white male lawyer who lives in a mansion in the East Bay Hills and who, for some reason, gets eight figures a year from _San Francisco_ taxpayers to basically run the Tenderloin – it’s amazing.*
“Sue Ellen Mischke is Elaine‘s nemesis whom she calls the “bra-less wonder.” Sue Ellen is the heiress to the Oh Henry! candy bar fortune, and has known Elaine since they attended high school together in Maryland. Sue Ellen is portrayed by Brenda Strong.
“In “The Caddy“, Elaine is so incensed that Sue Ellen doesn’t wear a bra that she gives her a bra as a gift, which Sue Ellen then promptly wears as a top. This causes Kramer to crash George‘s car when he and Jerry see her walking in her bra down the street. Kramer calls upon Jackie Chiles to help sue. Despite the suit, Jerry falls for her when she comes in his apartment. The courtroom scene that follows is a broad and obvious allusion to the O.J. Simpson trial, which ends when she tries the bra on, which does not fit.”
“In the pilot for Happy Days, there is a character mentioned named Sue Ellen Mischke. It is unknown if this name is a reference or just coincidence.”
“By the summer of 2008, going “uptown” in San Francisco will mean heading to the Tenderloin.”
This was a laughable statement back in 2007, and it came nowhere close to coming true in 2008 or beyond.
And there’s this:
The “Uptown Tenderloin” is the authentic historic name for the over 16-block area north of Market Street…”
And to that I say, “Nope! It’s not.”
