For the only-in-San-Francisco department, this letter asks sex and relationship adviser Andrea Nemerson whether it’s a good idea to have sex with somebody you’ve broken up with and can’t stand to be around.
And the SFBG editors make a good case for making SF the vanguard in the fight to preserve the public sector, although I really could care less whether the city privatizes the golf courses. But I don’t understand the push to privatize the city’s wireless system.
And here’s a listing of the Summer of Love 40th anniversary events, including the 2B1 event on September 2 which I will attend if I don’t have a trial on the third.
And I don’t know why a reviewer bothers to critique a movie like Transformers for its political content, but I did enjoy the very last paragraph of the review.
This is possibly the only part of Transformers in which Bay attempts to grasp feebly at political relevance and make something other than a zoomy truck commercial. Of course, he fails miserably. If you want to enjoy this flick without guilt, you will have to ignore the whole Middle East issue. Of course, one could say the same thing about living in the United States. Maybe Bay has succeeded in pulling off some social commentary after all: welcome to the United States — ignore the Middle East stuff, but stay for the masturbation jokes and cool special effects.
And an SF ballot measure in the works to protect cars from local parking regulations and the like. Three guesses as to who’s backing it.
Somebody posted something about this on one of the threads today, but it didn’t register. I had to work late tonight. Just got home a short while ago. As I was turning off of Redwood Drive I saw a police vehicle parked at the Baptist Church with the lights on. As I got closer I was directed off of Redway Drive by the officer. I took the detour and came to the Redway/Birdie intersection and saw another police vehicle a few houses down.
I walked my dog a few minutes ago and heard a girl scream. It was just kids playing around, but it rattled my nerves briefly. There was some sort of party at Par and Redway – kind of a surreal to hear the music and laughing as the whole neighborhood is lit up flashing red and blue. Kind of like partying at Armageddon.
It’s been a long day. Good night and good luck.
Speaking of satire. Read all about the trials and tribulations of the land of Humboldtistan.
I’ve received several e-mails with this link. We done have some good writing talent around here!
