    That Ingleside Light article, by the by, is entitled “Only the Community Can Fix Up Balboa Park Station.” Wait, what? Are we really at a point where we’ve thrown up our hands and declared our transit and planning agencies can’t do their jobs anymore?

    See, this is what I’m talking about. Some little neighborhood blog in Ingleside is pretty much all we have for reporting on ‘progress’ toward doing something about the intractable disaster that is the Balboa Park transit hub. Meanwhile, 3 miles north, Mission residents are complaining basically that they’re getting too much attention from SF Planning and want to be left alone to deal with their pedestrian hazards and blight.

    Jesus criminy, who is minding the store around here these days?!?
