    BART is 5 weeks late on that…

  • On the Bay Bridge Celebration website, you can sign up to get info about a bike ride across the bridge before it opens labor day weekend.  Whether this will be like the walk, just one-way going east to west (I guess us San Franciscans would take BART to get to the east side?) isn’t clear, but it would be pretty great to ride across the entire bridge car-free. A once-in-a-lifetime event.

    Fresno sounds like one of those places that should have a sign reading “In case of air attack, come here.  No enemy would want to bomb this place and put in out of its misery.”  From what I’ve heard, downtown Stockton isn’t much better, but Fresno sticks out in my mind because my daughter had her car stolen there about 25 years ago.
    Of course even suburban shopping malls can have problems drawing enough customers; there’s a website called “Deadmalls.com” that chronicles the decline and fall of shopping centers that time has passed by.
