More headlines over at Streetsblog Capitol Hill.

  • Well, if the city won’t listen to the residents on how stupid the Central Subway is, but a huge retailer with some financial pull can shut the waste of money down.

  • I meant to say ” but maybe a huge…”

    Also, I can’t believe that story about the Sonoma family getting robbed. It is a sick world out there.

  • Isn’t that awful, Mike? I was thinking of titling that headline with something much more rueful.

  • I’ll be honest, I rode BART on Thanksgiving to go for a ride in the East Bay Hills and the trains were just crawling with cops. While I feel safer and appreciate seeing SFPD on Muni more and more now, the BART cops seem like a thuggish and roguish bunch.

    It’s probably their recent spats of violence, but it is also just how they comport themselves. The one cop in the car I got onto gave me shit for asking him if I could slide my bike near him to put it in the disabled/bike space in the car–some shit about how I could just leave it there and not hold onto it. No shit man.

  • meant to write: “how I could not just leave it there”
