Sue Ellen Mischke, 94109 – Cruising the Tenderloin Wearing a Bra as a Top – Was This a Sorority Initiation?Monday, July 28th, 2014
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.”
Well, Here’s What the New Signs in the Panhandle Look Like: “PARK HOURS – 5AM-Midnight – PARK CODE 3.21”Friday, May 23rd, 2014
Apparently, our Board of Supervisors is unaware that the paved path on the south side of the Panhandle, the one that goes along right next to Oak, is NOT a bike path.
Joshua Cassidy of KQED has all the deets on the soon-to-open Devil’s Slide path.
And here’s what it looks like to coast down, via CoastSider:
A modern-day warrior
Mean mean stride,
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean mean pride.

No, her mind is not for rent
To any god or government.
Always hopeful, yet discontent,
She knows changes aren’t permanent,
But change is.
Exit the warrior,
Today’s Tom Sawyer,
She gets high on you,
And the energy you trade,
She gets right on to the friction of the day
Photo: If You Park Your Car Like This on the Sidewalk in Front of Your Garage, Some Pedestrian Just Might Kick ItMonday, November 11th, 2013
Boy, if I parked an aging Honda like this and then came back to find part of its right side all stove in like this, I’d think, “Gee, maybe some ped got mad and kicked my car right where s/he wanted to walk.”
And the I wouldn’t park on the fucking sidewalk anymore.
As seen on Masonic, home of absurdly wide (22 feet(!) in some places) sidewalks filled with not too many pedestrians and a whole bunch of cars:
