Ballot Fun 

Real excerpts from S.F.'s 272-page Voter Information Pamphlet.


While I never claim to be a mathematician, but how can have lower if we first have to pay a whopping 4 billion dollars!
—From Asian Week president James Fang's typo-ridden paid argument against the Clean Energy Act

Uniforms are blue
Fighting prostitution not homicide?!
I'd be embarrassed as hell too!
—Libertarian Phil Berg's poem in support of Prop. K, which would decriminalize prostitution

Prostitution is a racist, sexist activity that drives human trafficking, a form of slavery.
—From an argument against Prop. K

JROTC is a program of a homophobic military.
—LGBT activists' argument against Prop. V, which recommends keeping the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps in public schools

Besides, if we name the local sewage plant after Bush, then what's left to name after Jesse Helms?
—Argument against Prop. R, which would rename the Oceanside Water Treatment Plant the "George W. Bush Sewage Plant"

Need Bush memor'l?
Sewage plant available
How appropriate

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
