    Hooray for crime on MUNI. I’m sure glad SFPD rides with us prols on a regular basis.

    Also: Who’da thunk that Mayor Rose Pak wouldn’t give a shit about MUNI? I, for one, am deeply shocked. Shocked, I say.

    SHOCKED!

    So Ed Lee thinks America’s Cup a higher priority than Muni? Good god. A shame, too, since he seemed pretty decent.

  • Being a Wisconsinite, it’s killing me watching this union busting taking place. Then I read this and see that WI could lose federal transit dollars.

    -the Federal Transit Act “requires the continuation of any collective bargaining rights that were in place when the employer started receiving federal funds.”
