A cool as a cucumber Avalos shows he’s no cycling novice, shown fixing punctures and riding his bicycle without using his hands. Not sure if Board Prez and fellow mayoral candidate David Chiu can match Avalos’ skills, but they have at least one thing in common: they’re both vying to impress for the coveted San Francisco Bicycle Club (SFBC) endorsement.
“Get over your fucking self,” Pak responds. “This is about Willie Brown and me. Fuck keeping your word and your fucking promises. This is about me and using you to advance my fucking agenda – and my agenda is me.”
Tony Hall is the target of Melissa Griffin and Beth Spotswood’s latest episode of Necessary Conversation, poking a little fun at the former District 7 Supervisor and mayoral candidate, best known for his stand against corruption on Treasure Island, successfully defending himself against trumped-up allegations of money laundering, and for his silky-smooth, swooner voice.

I rushed to her side and told shameless lies for an hour or more as I introduced her to more luminaries.
Several Foggers have asked that I post more photos on FCJ. Apparently Foggers appreciate my photos more than anything else published on FCJ. So without further ado, the following photos were shot during yesterday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, the first meeting, I should add, when a Mayor of this great city attended a Board of Supervisors meeting (thanks to former Supervisor Chris Daly) to engage in formal policy discussions, as mandated by Measure C on last November’s ballot, with the legislative body.
And, given it’s getting ready to be the beginning of baseball season and we’re cutting players and making them feel miserable and making others feel great … I want to rate the value of the present members of the BOS individually on a scale of 1 to 10. Again, this is only my own humble opinion. Not being a religious man, I don’t claim that these are actually the choices of God. Passed down through me, as it were. Not that at all. No sir.
Public comment afforded many people, young and old, the chance to say how important EDM, rave culture and its values were to them. They spoke of acceptance, hope, and celebration of life.

Saint Patrick’s Day wouldn’t exist if not for the man himself. Only two authentic letters from him survive, from which come the only universally accepted details of his life. Much of the rest is subject to some debate among scholars.

Since announcing our intention to purchase The Buck, I have been excited to see additional segments of our progressive community drop in. This Fall, Drinking Liberally and several other informal progressive circles have found a home at Buck Tavern, and I am committed to continuing to foster these discussions as well as many others. In addition, our public house will be committed to supporting the grassroots efforts for social and economic justice that I have been associated with in this town for nearly 2 decades.
