    Re: “HSR would swipe…”

    At least the Merc didn’t write HSR will “STEAL” airport customers like Channel 2’s talking heads declared on this morning’s newscast.

    Swipe? Steal? This is the charged language of possession and of crime, not the dispassionate and fair language of journalism. It indicates bias–and corruption. WTF?

  • @CW, You are you my favorite. I hope you never lose your soap box, even after the Chron has died a slow painful death. I can’t wait to read all your stories decrying the huge salary increases to fire and police! The view of San Francisco from the East Bay must be exceptional today with the clear skies and tail lights in every direction. Oh, to sit on your pedestal. Someday! At least I have something to aspire to…

  • Nat Ford thinks we should all be more careful around MUNI? Sure there are idiots out there who turn in front of or walk in front of busses but the bus drivers could really learn a lot more about the size difference between a bus and a bike.

    And sure, I’ve seen my idiot fellow cyclists out there cutting in front of busses and pulling scary stuff out there but to have a bus driver cut you off, buzz you or race around you in a manner more fitting for a sports car is an experience I do not wish on others. There are plenty of MUNI operators who are just as culpable in accidents, attitude and reckless driving. I mean, can you blame cyclists, pedestrians or motorists on all the light rail incidents lately?

    I’d suggest they spend some of the budget for MUNI on meditation classes so we can all breathe easier.
