I’m thinking that this kind of scene is pretty much what you could have seen in each of the past 13 decades…

Attention Tour Bus Operators: After a Fender-Bender, Get Your Rigs Out of the Middle Lane of Oak Street – Don’t Be Calling Your Insurance AgentWednesday, October 29th, 2014
So, yes, you had a little fender-bender with your big bus, and yes, it was related to the endless tinkering done by the SFMTA MUNI DPT DPW bowl of alphabet soup. So what! It’s not that big of a deal. CSI San Francisco isn’t going to send it’s Go Team and the NTSB isn’t coming neither.
Therefore, get your bus out of the roadway, pull it over. Sure, take a couple iPhone shots first, sure. But then get outta the way. THIS IS SFPD POLICY. Don’t you know this? You had at least two employees on the scene, why not have one, I don’t know, let’s call him the Driver, drive the bus to one side of the road or the other. Did you call the SFPD? IDK, but if you did, don’t you want them to show up? Now, how are they going to do that if you block the road, which, as stated, is a noteworthy bottleneck already, due to ongoing construction efforts, for umpty-ump minutes?
I cry foul.
Ooh boy, I can tell I’m in hot water already, so I’ll have to pay off on this headline tout de suite
So there I was, years ago, riding up Market coming home from work, as I am want to do, and I noticed an ad, 17 foot tall, for a local network affiliate’s new weather woman and I thought, wow, that’s not very Bay Arean, it’s more old-school, 50′s-style, come-look-at-our-beautiful (that was the actual word on the ad) new weathergirl.
So I took a shot of the ad and posted it.
So now, years later, I have a rough gauge of how many people are Googling her name at 5:00 or 6:00 or 7:00 AM on any particular day. On a day she’s wearing something particularly revealing, this site will get hundreds of visitors looking at the old post, which means thousands(!) of people must be Googling her name that morning – isn’t that a lot?
As stated, this has been going on for years. And this isn’t a small effect, this outfit-based popularity, it’s a huge effect. So, a frumpy outfit might generate ten times less “interest” than, how shall we say, a non-frumpy, more revealing outfit.
Here’s what it looks like when that old post is bringing in 17% of the audience to this small WordPress blog:
Now I don’t look at the TV news myself, as I don’t have cable and I live in a high multipath area, what with the hills* and all, but this is my peek into what’s going on in the news biz, TV-wise.

Here She Is: Le Grand Doyenne de San Francisco – Cruising the Financh with Driving Gloves in a Jeep Grand WagoneerWednesday, July 30th, 2014
Saw this woman a couple years ago on Battery in the Financial – very striking, like something out of a movie.
Anyway, I just saw this ride parked on the street in a location that would make you say, “Well of course that’s where this lady lives.”
