    Since I’ve been on one big Central Subway rant the last week or so, might as well keep the ball rolling. $57 million more into the black pit!

    Regarding the BART shooting incident, it appears that the “transient” forgot an important rule of self-preservation: “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.”  This was proved back in 1958, when a record-label owner got into a business dispute with a songwriter.  The owner pulled a knife, and the writer pulled out a pistol.  Guess who went to the morgue later that day.  Also, most of the comments in SFGate are on the side of the cops, not the now-deceased bum.  If someone in SF city government advocated rounding up all the “winos and weirdos” and shipping them off to a stockade in some remote area, many citizens would whole-heartedly back the proposal.
