    Another fact free opinion piece from Rebecca Solnit http://www.lrb.co.uk/v36/n04/rebecca-solnit/diary on what’s wrong with the city. Amazing how far afield she needs to send her work in order to get it published.

    Shhhh… quiet about that bike tax, after $6 Muni fares we don’t want Mayor Lee getting any more ideas about how he can subsidize “free” parking.

    Bike tax – so what is the bike mode share in DeSaulnier’s district – and why is he trying to keep it that way?

  • murphstahoe

    Don’t forget the skateboard tax, the roller blade tax, the razor scooter tax, the tricycle tax, the unicycle tax, and the sneaker tax.
