Here’s the “Solution” for the Deadly Pedestrian Problem at Trader Joe’s #100 on Masonic – Is It Enough? Maybe

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

You see this sign? It’s the one you see as you exit TJ’s #100 on Masonic near Geary, assuming you’re not driving or riding.

It was put in as a response to all those shoppers who jaywalk to their cars on the other side of Masonic.

People still jaywalk of course, owing to the ease of parking on the northbound side of Masonic and the difficulty encountered trying to park in the TJ’s lot.  (There’s a lot of history here on this example of bad planning.)

Did I call for this sign? Yes I did. So it’s good that it’s there now. It wasn’t there a couple of years ago, so good on you, SFGov.

But can SFGov and TJ’s do more? Sure. Hey, why don’t the Powers That Be take the opportunity revisit this whole situation before others kill themselves?

Right? I mean I’m not talking politically, ’cause the politics part of getting a new gro sto here is already done. But, you know, morally.

Just asking.

Moving on…

Now here’s an example of people actually taking the several minutes required to get back to their cars by walking down to Geary and waiting for the four-way signal.

This gal here broke from her shopping group to jaywalk while her friends did things the legal way.

(Until this, I’ve never noticed a person not  jaywalking,)

So here she is, sitting pretty whilst waiting for her friends, exulting in her ability to not get hit by a car on this occasion:

I don’t notice this kind of scene as much these days so that’s good.

That’s the update.

The Most Joyous SFPD Park Station Routine Stop Imaginable

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

I’ve never tried this strategy when dealing with the fuzz.

(And I seriously doubt it could work  for me.)

But who knows what happened in the end:

And speaking of Golden Gate Park Park Station,you know what’s not so funny was the 1970 San Francisco Police Department Park Station bombing possibly involving The Weather Underground, possibly involving  Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn,

That’s not so funny at all.

Achtung Baby! SFPD Sting Op Comes Down Hard on an iPhone Thief – A Nice Video Featuring Retractable Baton

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

IDK, I think this dude’s court-appointed mouthpiece would be happier if dude hadn’t turned off Find My iPhone before negotiating the $180 finder’s fee.

“Uploaded on Jul 10, 2013

A friend of mine dropped her phone. This guy found it, and demanded $180 to get it back after disabling ‘Find My iPhone’. The police agreed to set up the sting. The guy you see from the back in the hat is the undercover cop. He goes to pay the guy and the three others move in. Especially notice the one flick out his baton. At this point, I am asked to stop filming, but allowed to continue after informing the officer of my rights. He only asked I moved a little down the block, which I complied with.

Food Truck Employee Lounge: The Nearest Alley – Bring Your Cell Phone – Is This Better Than Working in a Restaurant Kitchen?

IDK.

Anyway, this alley off Bush has become the break room for one* of the Curry Up Now trucks:

*OMG, the line. I’ve never seen a food truck line as long as CUN’s over such a length of time. Check it out at Bush and Sansome around lunchtime. It’s been that way for months and months and months. CUN is making food truck history, I’ll tell you.

Street Chess in the Mid-Market: It’s Back, Baby! After a Few Lean Years, Market Street is Back Up to Ten Tables Sometimes

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Frisco street chess hasn’t been this vibrant in years.

Things hadn’t been so hot since the Great Street Chess War of 2010, when the traditional location at Fifth and Market got eliminated. Get the deets here from Chris Roberts of the SF Weekly.

And even last year, you wouldn’t necessarily see that much activity.

But we’re in a more active era now, with a noticeable increase just the past few months.

Appears that this out-of-the-way location is hitting critical mass…
