I’d never noticed this before, this WEST PORTAL sign near Carl and Cole just outside of the Sunset Tunnel
Do people drive their bikes and cars through this thing?
Asks James Corrigan, who took this shot:
“Seriously, would you let your kid ring the bell at this West Portal house on Halloween night?
Note the blood on the blade – a nice touch.
Also note the dead grass front lawn, of which I also approve.
If you can’t make it out there, you can always try 400-700 Belvedere Street in the 94117…
Ah, let’s see what’s on the agenda today – oh it’s a tour of the City, a kind of victory lap to celebrate yesterday’s big news.
Mr. Mayor will drop by Districts #4, #7, and #10 with area Supervisors. Check it:
“Mayor Lee to visit Sunset neighborhood merchants along Irving Street with Supervisor Carmen Chu to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Sunset Super”
“Mayor Lee to visit West Portal neighborhood merchants along West Portal Avenue with Supervisor Sean Elsbernd to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Squat & Gobble”
“Mayor Lee to visit Portola neighborhood merchants along San Bruno Avenue with Supervisor Malia Cohen to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at North East Medical Services (NEMS)”
Fair enough, but oh, here’s another one – it’s in District #3, you know, the realm of Board of Supervisors President David Chiu.
“Mayor Lee to visit Chinatown neighborhood merchants along Stockton Street to discuss jobs & small businesses.
Merchant walk to start at Self-Help for the Elderly”
You notice anything? That’s right, Supervisor Chiu isn’t invited to a merchant walk in his own district.
Do you think that this is a mere oversight on behalf of the scheduling secretary?*
This is WillieBrownRosePakEdLee saying Foxtrot Yankee to poor DC for, among other things, Speaking Truth to Power a few months back.**

Soon, if not already, he’ll be in supervisorial campaign mode once again. What do WillieBrownRosePakEdLee have in store for David Chiu for 2012?
Well, we’ll just have to wait and see…
*Will Ed Lee be the first San Francisco Mayor since the 1990’s to NOT have sex with a young, attractive, female, SFGov mayoral scheduling secretary? Why yes, you can bank on that. How refreshing!
“’So, Ed,’ began David Chiu, recounting a private conversation he claims the two had shortly before Lee reversed his longstanding insistence he wouldn’t run. ‘You told me you didn’t have the fire in the belly. You’d looked in the mirror and said you didn’t want to run … but you didn’t know how to say no to Willie Brown and Rose Pak.’
OK, there’s a genuine gotcha. Ouch.”
