    This is a no win proposition. Their approach is horribly flawed, despite the appropriateness of the statement being made.

    And, in the end, we need BART to remain around (because if they were actually competent enough to organize even just a one-day boycott, that would cripple BART financially). We just need their police to be less murderous. On that note, why not go after the division responsible for hiring BART police?! It's totally fuckall.

    All these people who get on without pushing their ticket have to get off somewhere and eventually push a ticket through a gate at another station. Are they assuming BART is going to have to shut down their entire systemwide gate system and just let everyone on for free no matter where they are just in case they got on or will get off at Powell?
    Ugh, yes. Not to mention that even if some commuter was gleefully rejoicing over the prospect of ONE free BART ride from these protesters, that commuter would still have to go to a BART official at their destination stop and explain their case to that official and hope that the official believed them/was sympathetic enough to let through through the exit turnstile without paying. STILL KIND OF INCONVENIENT, YOU FUCKS.

    Back in December of 2010 Ike's Place said they were opening up a shop at SFSU. A few months later the sandwich shop in Caeser Chavez student center closed and I have been waiting anxiously for Ike's to open but there is literally no news about when or if it is ever going to happen. I'm so fucking hungry.

    I went to SF on Monday with a friend. We ate dinner at this noodle place called Katanaya on Mason street, anyone heard of it? I had Udon noodles and they were delicious, though a bit hard to handle with chopsticks and a spoon.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Today, I saw the sunrise while driving North over the GG Bridge. Looking East, I noticed a large white shrouded structure on Alcatraz. Apparently, the National Park Service, is renovating the water tower for a cost of $1.1 million. The repairs are an effort to stabilize the structure and preserve/restore Native American graffiti. This graffiti is political in nature and stems from when thousands of Native Americans belonging to numerous tribes occupied Alacatraz. The occupation lasted from Nov. 20, 1969, until June 11, 1971. Actors and musicians, including the Grateful Dead and CCR (whom played a show aboard a boat stationed off the island) were involved in supporting and supplying the occupiers. Due to the resoluteness of the tribes and an outpouring of popular support, Pres. Nixon instituted policies allowing for self-determination amongst Native tribes.

    Before today, I had absolutely no knowledge of this seminal event. Props to the money strapped Parks Service for making the effort to preserve such an important moment in Bay Area and National history.

    Housing prices are fucking nuts right now... my lease is up in a month and I'm moving out anyway but my landlord is raising our total rent $700, and on craigslist it looks like prices in general have gone up pretty significantly in the last year. I'm going to spend like a grand a month for a place with no living room, looks like, or live in the outer Sunset.

    How do you party when you live in the Sunset? any tips?

    I've had good luck parking on Mission North of PW, just after the overpass. If there aren't spots there, make a Right onto S. Van Ness and a right onto 15th and start looking on those side streets.

    Trick: you come to my place? I dunno, I live in the richmond and I go out more than when I lived downtown (as now I can afford to). There are 24 hour buses, and the occasional taxi fare isn't too bad.

    kataneya is the most popular ramen joint in SF.

    You'd think they'd have more competition but there's really not a lot.

    That would explain the small crowd outside the place.

    In a city where fog is a fact of life, the Richmond holds a special place. You know that when San Franciscans think of an area as being especially foggy and cold that you are in for some truly gloomy weather. Virtually every night a white carpet unrolls over Richmond, often never retreating entirely until late in the afternoon. But the weather is unpredictable throughout the day, with refreshingly cool sea breezes one moment, followed by a sudden clear calm, that will only give way to a hard driving rain in a moment. Put simply, visitors should take a hint from the locals and carry a jacket with them no matter how pleasant the weather seems when they first step out onto the Richmond streets.

    It also sometimes rains there; but is generally less foggy than the Richmond district of San Francisco.

    Yea, Richmond (the city) is... a bit different than San Francisco. The weather is a little warmer (while still pretty moderate) -- upper 60's/low 70's for the middle part of the year and mostly upper 50's highs in the winter. It doesn't get quite as cold as SF in the winter, nor as much rain, and it's sunny more days than not. Perhaps a nice change from the PNW?

    ...It's known for having crime problems though. It is one of the least safe cities in the US (in terms of per capita violent crimes). IIRC, North Richmond is particularly bad. Choose your neighborhoods carefully, I guess?
