  • SFGate really doesn’t realize that 95% of their comments are from right-wing nut jobs that don’t live in the Bay Area? Give me a break.

    Also, C.W.’s column today was a hack job per usual. Tree sitters at the library? Firetrucks with poor access to Lombard? Give me a break. There is a fire station on Stockton one block from Lombard on Telegraph Hill. The fire dept doesn’t need to use that sharp right turn from Columbus onto Lombard. Who gives this guy a pen and paper twice a week? It needs to stop.

    Except the SFGate article doesn’t actually report that outrage affected the BART strike. That’s just its ideological title. The article is actually just a report on how bad economic times brought about the public outcry.
