Blog Comments of the Week
Person featured in a blog post responds: Wow! Thanks, Anna Pulley, for writing this blog post ["Meet Cheryl Shuman, the Martha Stewart of Marijuana," the Exhibitionist, 1/24]. I'm thrilled and honored to even be mentioned within SF Weekly. I hope Pulley will follow the progress as [my team] builds the cannabis industry. Thanks again!

Don't get run over by your car: Easy way to remember is to turn the wheels so that if the car rolls then the front wheels hit the curb first ["Driver Dies After Being Pinned by His Own Car in Nob Hill," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 1/23]. Also, if the car is rolling downhill no one should step in front of it to stop it, unless the person is Superman, the Incredible Hulk, or someone similar.


More fresh food options than there used to be: While [some] people in S.F. love to rip on "chain stores," chain stores like Walgreens and 7-Eleven are now stocking actual fruits and vegetables, not just Big Gulps and other crap food ["Bayview Stores Will Finally Serve Residents Something Besides Liquor and Crap Food," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 1/22]. Shocking but true!


Wondering how things would be if marijuana court cases went differently: Gee, I wonder how many DEA jobs would be lost or how much funding would be cut if the courts started making decisions going in the other direction ["Marijuana Still Has No Medical Value, Court Says," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 1/22]. Also, I wonder about the make up of the court and if the majority are Republican appointments (not that the Democrats are any more enlightened on the topic).


Gaga fan disagrees with concert review: I was at the show and I'm an avid Gaga fan, and I thought the show was fantastic ["Lady Gaga's Pointy Absurdity Knows No Bounds at HP Pavilion, 1/17/13," Ian S. Port, All Shook Down, 1/18]. She was born to perform and it's obvious when she is onstage. I didn't want it to end. She was freaking phenomenal, kept me guessing the entire show. It was a spectacle and awesome.


Astronaut's photo could be referring to the Golden Gate Bridge: Both bridges are in the shot, and both shadows can be seen ["Canadian Astronaut Mistakes Bay Bridge for Golden Gate Bridge," Joe Eskenazi, the Snitch, 1/24]. There's no reason to believe the photographer was mistaking one for the other. This is a total non-story.


Not everyone is okay with paying for parking on Sundays: Does this mean MUNI and BART will no longer have holiday and Sunday hours and start running like a weekday ["What Little Parking Relief You Had in San Francisco Is About to End," Erin Sherbert, the Snitch, 1/4]? So all the service people who drive to work on Sunday and park there because BART doesn't open early enough can get to work and not blow their paycheck on parking.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
