    Scott Wiener put in a Yelp Review of Google – stating that he would not use their search engine until their bus drivers were given better wages and working conditons.

    Yelp deleted the review. Not germaine to the customer experience.

    RPP just passed in Alamo Square/ North of Panhandle. Woohoo!

    That’s why companies like Lyft and Uber are doing what they’re doing, because they don’t trust municipal politics.

    I’m curious about the injury at 17th and Diamond. There’s a lot of construction going on right there, and the sidewalk is closed on one side a few houses up from that intersection. There’s definitely more pedestrians than usual having to cross every which way and more visual clutter with a lane closure just beyond the intersection. I wonder if those were factors. Either way, people are always in way too much of a hurry coming up 17th Street, and the stop signs seem like an unwelcome suggestion at best. I can hear the sigh and the eye rolling every time I actually use the crosswalk at that intersection and delay a car by 2 seconds.
