Well there’s this:
“Though many of the folks who supply content to DCist aren’t full-time employees, Freed, as editor-in-chief, is. He earns — actually, earned — a salary in the $40,000 range plus health benefits, vacation and sick leave.”
News to me.
And there’s this, from the newly-opened Bustle.com:
“Bustle.com is seeking a freelance morning news writer to start ASAP to help fill its news vertical with intelligent, thoughtful content. The writer will cover the biggest stories of the day and should be well versed in both national and int’l news as well as politics, tech and more.
The freelance news writer will be expected to produce roughly 4-5 posts per day, 3 of which would be ready for edit by 10 AM, EST and the remainder produced throughout the early afternoon. Posts will mostly be informative news summaries and intelligently curated galleries, though original reporting will be encouraged. We are not looking for auto-pilot re-blogs, and applicants should be experienced writers/reporters/bloggers.
A minimum commitment of at least 3-4 days per week is required, with the possibility for additional days should a writer prove themselves indispensable. Starting pay is $100/day, but is somewhat commensurate with experience.
This position can be remote, and is especially well-suited to early risers, or writers living abroad. We’re looking for someone with at least two years of blogging and reporting experience (a must!), a unique voice, pitch-perfect news judgement, and speedy delivery. Applicants should also be familiar with Bustle and our news coverage.
To apply: Please send a resume, short note about why you’re interested including your availability and 3 clips (links are preferred) to email@example.com with the subject line ‘Morning News Blogger.’ Only eligible applicants will be contacted.
Questions/ applications: firstname.lastname@example.org”

Hurry on down to Union Square before the holiday ice skating rink leaves us on January 21, 2013.
This was the scene on December 6th: Drag Queens On Ice 2012: Bigger, Better and Bawdier!
Simply everybody was there to cheer on the queens, including members of the San Francisco Bulls hockey team and the concomitant Cow Belles:

Today’s ‘Xam has an ad for a singles night - maybe they’ll have another one of those soon.
All right, see you there, in the square!
I remember it as if it were yesterday:
Boy, what could be more off-message for the marketing department of San Francisco’s worst-run agency than this one, huh?
Tell me, is there a viable candidate for District Five Supervisor who isn’t being supported by Republican billionaire Ron Conway?
Now isn’t this one of RC’s bullshit Republican PAC’s?
So what’s up with this?
Now, here’s the latest on RC, from writer Gerry Shih.
(And actually, that bit should serve as a guide for kiss-ass “access writer” David Talbot.)
So I guess I’m left with John Rizzo?
I mean throw me a bone here, people. How many defective, DNQ’ed leading candidates can one supervisory race support?
I’m going to have to ponder this one…
Hey ladies! You already have white tops and black bras and short black skirts and black tights and white shoes in your closets, so all you’ll need is a road flare or two.

Bringing a friend or two with you? Well then have them wear pencil skirts and follow you around.
And your guy friends can bring their bikes along – it all comes together.
Two women with tickets for the theatre did not take kindly to the 20th anniversary ride of Critical Mass last Friday night.
They did manage to rescue an SUV, but that’s the extent of their accomplishments.
Here it is, like a candle in the wind, a woman with a road flare in the Tenderloin:
