D-A-L-Y Is 4-Letter Word

SFGate writes, Supervisor Chris Daly's name is the new four-letter word in 3 supervisor contests.

Daly's at it again, trying to stack the board with his hand-picked cronies. A vote for them is a vote for him and his antics like his resolutions to ban the Junior ROTC and the Blue Angels which have helped him to become the least-popular politician citywide.

The San Francisco Association of Realtors is paying for robocalls in Districts One, Three and Eleven comparing some of the candidates to Daly.

The San Francisco Homeowners Council, a political committee affiliated with the Realtors' group says:

"David Chiu is the handpicked candidate of far-out Supervisor Chris Daly and his radical, ineffective faction on the Board of Supervisors -like Daly's antics, you will love Chiu."
In addition to David Chiu, campaign mailers and television commercials are targeting Daly's "puppets" Eric Mar in Disctrict One and Daly's former aide John Avalos in District Eleven.

Anyone associated with D-a-l-y is a four-letter word. I can't wait to vote him out of office!

Gavin's Flaccid Package

Stimulate this!

Mayor Gavin Newsom unveiled his economic stimulus plan this week revealing a flaccid response to very recent economic woes.

1. Payments from state and federal governments to S.F. are down

2. Property transfer tax revenue is down. From $6.7 billion (gross sales, not the revenue from the transfer tax) in calendar 2007 to just slightly over $1 billion for the first 8.5 months of 2008.

3. SF will be affected by the general macroeconomic slowdown.

4. Retail sales are down in S.F.

5. Business tax revenue will go down.

6. The newly strengthened dollar will hurt S.F., like reduced tourism for example.

The most recent economic data released by the Controller's Office shows the city's unemployment rate was at 5.9 percent in August; a year ago it was at 4.6 percent. Still, the state's unemployment rate, for example, was 7.7 percent in August.

Greenwashing To The Governor's Mansion

Saadia Malik of the San Francisco Bay Guardian [SFBG] takes a look at Gavin Newsom's newest green initiatives:

GREEN CITY Mayor Gavin Newsom has made a high profile push for several new green initiatives in recent weeks, a concerted political move that comes just as he and his political team are aggressively working to subvert a city ballot measure that would make far bigger gains in combating climate change and greening the city's energy portfolio than anything he's proposing.

Julian Davis, campaign manager for Proposition H, the Clean Energy Act, told the Guardian:
"San Franciscans should be ashamed that they have a mayor who is greenwashing and gay washing his way to the governor's mansion."
Newsom opposes Proposition H, which would direct the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission to figure out how to provide clean and renewable energy to the city, and Pacific Gas & Electric Co. has hired Newsom's chief political strategist, Eric Jaye, to lead the multimillion dollar campaign to defeat the measure.

Davis said the steady stream of green initiatives from the Mayor's Office are simply a means to make up for the mayor's severe deficiency in environmental credibility.

Schwarzenegger In Total Recall

According to SacBee.com, a "powerful and well-heeled" correctional officers' union is petitioning for the recall of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The union needs over $1 million to cull the 1,041,530 signatures to qualify a recall for the ballot.

This comes one the 70th day of the 2008-09 fiscal year that California has been without a budget, the longest standoff in California history. If you recall, CA voters "recalled ex-Gov. Gray Davis one year after the second-longest budget impasse, the 2002 budget."

Lance Corcoran, spokesperson of the California Correctional Peace Officers Association, says the reason for the recall is, “In the history of bad governors, this is the worst governor we've ever had." He went on to say:

This is a man who is a poser. That's what he did, that's how he made his living, posing.

Corcoran said the "straw that broke the camel's back" was the governor's executive order this summer to temporarily slash the pay of state workers to the federal minimum wage. The governor did so to conserve cash during the budget impasse.

While some state workers, including the public safety officers of the California Highway Patrol, were exempted en masse, the employees of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation were not.

    Newsom Hosts Unconventional '08 Rock Concert

    San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will host a free indie-rock concert in Denver during convention.

    Critically aware of what the young adult vote means to his base as he considers a run for governor in 2010, Newsom will sponsor honoring Young Democrats of America event in Denver during the Democratic National Convention.

    It will feature an all-star line-up including Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cold War Kids, Silversun Pickups, Nada Surf, DJ Z-Trip and members of Death Cab for Cutie, Rilo Kiley and She and Him, as well as a special appearance by comedienne and actress Sarah Silverman and other surprise guests.

    Obama Snub Still Rubs Newsom

    I stumbled across an interesting post on C.W. Nevius Blog, asserting Gavin Newsom is still rankled by Barack Obama snub dating back to 2004.

    Allegedly, when Gavin Newsom was the poster boy for gay-friendly straight men everywhere, did Barack Obama shy away from having his picture taken with the San Francisco mayor?

    Newsom insiders say yes; Obama insiders call the claim "ridiculous."

    Perhaps, that is why Newsom supported Hillary Clinton? There are some who think this story was a calculated move to drive gay voters to Hillary. And there are others, like former SF mayor Willie Brown, who see good reason why Obama, then running for U.S. Senate, might've have shied away from connecting himself with gay marriage back at a time when the idea was see nas much more "radical" than it is today.

    Read this San Francisco Chronicle story and decide for yourself:

    Blood On Newsom's Hands

    San Francisco Sells Sanctuary: Bill O'Reilly

    The man charged with killing a father and two sons on a San Francisco street last month was one of the youths who benefited from the city's long-standing practice of shielding illegal immigrant juveniles who committed felonies from possible deportation.

    Edwin Ramos, now 21, is being held on three counts of murder in the June 22 deaths of Tony Bologna, 48, and his sons Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16. They were shot near their home in the Excelsior district when Tony Bologna, driving home from a family picnic, briefly blocked the gunman's car from completing a left turn down a narrow street.

    Ramos had been in trouble before. In 2003, when he was 17, he was found guilty of attempted robbery and assaulting a San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority passenger. Last March, he was detained for several days after police found a gun used in a double homicide in the car he was driving. And then came June 22, when Anthony Bologna's car prevented Ramos from turning left at an intersection. San Francisco police say Ramos opened fire with an AK-47 assault rifle, killing Bologna and his two sons, Michael and Matthew, who were driving home from a family barbecue.

    Ramos is a native of El Salvador. He is an undocumented immigrant and an alleged member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang, also known as MS-13. And despite his previous scrapes with the law and his juvenile felony convictions, Ramos has never been deported - a fact that has put him at the center of a debate over San Francisco's so-called "sanctuary law".

    The triple homicide has prompted conservative commentators including Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly and Lou Dobbs to weigh in - O'Reilly called the city of San Francisco "completely out of control and now directly responsible for the murders of three men."

    Jennifer Seibel, Gavin Newsom Wedding

    Mayor Gavin Newsom took a little breather from busy job as a Crime Fighter and one giant step towards a Political Makeover to advance his Gav4Gov ambitions, marring actress Jennifer Siebel on Saturday at Siebel's parents' Montana Ranch.

    It is the 34-year-old Siebel's first marriage and the second for Newsom, who divorced legal analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle in March 2006.

    Newsom met Siebel in October 2006 and they have been together ever since. Siebel was at Newsom's side when he was sworn in for his second term as mayor in January. She also stood by him after he publicly admitted to having had an affair with a staff member's wife and a drinking problem.

    U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi traveled to Montana to attend the wedding as did other friends and family. Conspiculously, Senator Dianne Feinstein was not invited.

    Newsom Back Behind Bars

    Nope, not San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's favorite watering hole, Plumpjack and Balboa Cafe owned by Newsom and former socialite pal, Billy Getty.

    Rather, an unusual jailhouse visit to obtain access codes to the city's computer network.

    City engineer Terry Childs had been accused of withholding the access codes and has been jailed since July 13 on felony counts. Prosecutors said he was trying to block access to a vital city network.

    A team of code crackers brought in from Cisco Systems had been working around the clock to try to decipher Childs' codes, but with only marginal success.

    Then, Childs' lawyer, Erin Crane, called the mayor's office Monday afternoon, offering a jailhouse meeting.

    "It wasn't cheap and I just couldn't see us keep spending that kind of money"

    Without hesitation, the mayor acted to pay a secret visit to the jail and waled away with the codes. He was there inside of thirty minutes.

    • Do not contact City Attorney, Kamila Harris.
    • Do not contact Chief of Police, Heather Fong.
    • Do pass go and collect the code!

    The lawyer says Childs had been the victim of a plot to force him out of his job.I admire both Child's enginuity born of his necessity, not compunction, to leverage his hand to win an audiance with the mayor, attempting to navagate through the murky judicial system as well as Newsom's willingness to quickly grant it on the City's behalf - saving taxpayers money!

    This is just another reason why Gavin Newsom does NOT suck indeed!

    Are Ya Insane?

    If a picture's worth a 1000 votes, the Nader for President campaign likely owes Crow Soup (Flickr) the reminaing 500 (they haven't got) for snapping this gem.

    With Barack Obama running as the Democratic nominee, Nader and company will be hard-pressed to reach Green Party activists/pacifists.

    Too bad, Republican hopeful and genuine Independent candidate, John McCain won't benefit by the hippy vote as George W. Bush did before him.

    But wait! Act now, and you also get Matt Gonzalez. How do we do it?

    Substraction by addition!

    Bottom of the barrel for Bottom of the ticket, Matt Gonazlez too weak to run against Gavin Newsom, wants to be a heartbeat away from leader of the free world. Are ya insane?

    Gonzo's the Major League equivalent of a AAA washout scratching his initials into an All-Star ballot.

    Bush league! This is a National Election, not the Lottery. If ya really care about the environment, stop wasting our time, dime and littering the streets with your worthless signs.

    It was time to hang it up, before you began.

    Newsom Stalker Crashes Car; Walks Into B.A.R.

    Han Shin, the man accused last year of stalking Mayor Gavin Newsom and trying to run over his ex-boyfriend's roommate, found himself in trouble again this week after he allegedly rammed his car into the driver of another vehicle following a traffic accident. It is the second time in 18 months that Shin has been accused of trying to run someone over.

    The latest incident occurred around noon Wednesday, July 9 at the intersection of 9th and Harrison streets. Police arrested Shin, 43, who was wearing sandals, yellow shorts cut above the knee, and a yellow and black patterned silk collared shirt - so sorry to say, no purple latex gloves. He was charged with aggravated assault with an automobile weapon. As of Friday, Shin remained in San Francisco County jail.

    According to police, Shin and another driver were involved in a traffic accident after which Shin allegedly drove his Toyota Corolla LE into the other driver.

    "There was some type of prior contact between the two. When the victim stopped at the traffic light, the suspect drove into the victim's vehicle intentionally," said police spokesman Sergeant Neville Gittens.
    "then the suspect intentionally ran into the other person."
    According to eyewitness accounts, soon after the accident Shin walked toward the Bay Area Reporter (B.A.R.) offices on 9th Street. Another driver warned him that he was leaving the scene of an accident. A B.A.R. staffer was later told that he'd hit both vehicles and had asked,
    "Where's the Bay Area Reporter?"
    According to the staff member, Shin entered the office whimpering and carrying large, rolled up pieces of paper, folders, and a bag loaded with more papers.

    Not knowing about the accident, staff asked if there was something wrong, and if he wanted them to call police. Shin replied:
    "I'm afraid of the police."
    That's when staff members recognized him and one staffer told Shin he remembered him as the person who was found in Mayor Newsom's apartment building.

    Shin adopted a somber, serious tone and asked, "What do you know about it?" After that, he started babbling incoherently.

    When Shin started to open a small gate that leads past the B.A.R. 's front desk, as if he wanted to come back and talk to staff, he was told, "Just leave, just get out."

    Shin got huffy, grabbed his things, and as he turned to leave yelled back:
    "Fucking fags!"
    Back outside, Shin, who'd been screaming during much of the accident's aftermath – at one point, a police officer tugged on his shirt in an apparent attempt to get him to calm down – eventually appeared to be in better spirits.

    As he stood outside the Vagabond Inn, which is next door to the B.A.R., he raised his hands in the air, shimmied, and sang part of the Brenda Lee classic "I'm Sorry." Shin also rambled, invoking the names of Madonna and Benjamin Franklin as an officer stood a few feet across from him.

    Shin, a new age author and beauty contestant organizer, didn't resist as police handcuffed him moments later and led him away.

    In February 2007, Shin was caught trying to break into Newsom's Pacific Heights apartment building and was charged with stalking the debonair politician. He reportedly had been seen photographing the mayor below the waist at a public event and aggressively grabbed Newsom.

    Shin denied the charges, but a San Francisco Superior Court commissioner issued a three-year restraining order against Shin, ordering him to stay at least 100 yards from Newsom.

    Later that month Shin faced numerous charges in Contra Costa County, including one count of first-degree residential burglary, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count felony vandalism stemming from a February 28 incident in San Ramon.

    Prosecutors alleged that Shin went to the home of his former lover to confront him, but when the man wasn't at home, Shin allegedly barged into the residence, took some money and a photograph of the former boyfriend and left. The man's roommate followed Shin outside, according to police, and Shin allegedly tried to run him over three times with his car.

    Separated At Birth: Christian Bale

    Is my mask of sanity slipping or is San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom bearing a strikingly handsome resemblance to one of modern Hollywood’s elite cult figures - actor Christian Bale?

    Bale’s most acclaimed roles are lead in Batman Begins and serial killer Patrick Bateman in American Psycho.

    Suddenly and for no apparent reason, author of the controversial novel Bret Easton Ellis, begins with the lead character, Patrick Batman, stabbing a homeless man.

    Spontaneous Degeneration or Careful Contemplation Evolving, Disolving Inside Out like the Spontaneous Slip of The Stranger's Neck Upon a Knife (Albert Camus) or Perhaps, a Platonic Pull pushing Ellis into Eddy in the Withering Streets of The Tenderloin Heights?

    Not unlike the Newsome administration, Ellis constructed the work with no way to understand the Killer's motives, making it even more frightening. From here, the body count grows to include prositutes, gays, girlfriends and children.

    And, I'm hoping he'll do the same with the Mayor’s purple latex glove wearing Valentine's Day stalker, Han Shin, in a sequel!

    Meantime, Christian Bale rightfully rehearses his lines to an acceptance speech on the not so distant horizon and Newsom readys himself for some punches below the equator as he prepares to follow Actor-Turned-Politician and mentor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, for what will be his first contest since his victory over Matt Gonzalez in 2003 mayorial race - Gav4Gov.com.

    Separated At Birth: Pat Riley

    Pictured on the left is, Pat Riley, now 23-years older than San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and widely regarded as one of the greatest NBA coaches of all time. Riley has served as the head coach of five championship teams and an assistant coach to another.

    Of course, Newsom’s first term was won in 2003, so his best ball is on the horizon. Thus far, he’s grazed on necessary; yet, low-hanging political fruit like, Same-Sex Marriage, Greenery and Scenery not to mention attempting to add WiFi.

    He’s also tried to tackle controversial social issues such as Community Court, Care-Not-Cash and Services or Citation as well as challenge America’s War On Drugs warehousing America.

    Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon be stepping down from a bigger office far outside The City limits and considerably more conservative.

    If Gavin hopes to fill it, he won't be unopposed. He’ll have to at least defeat Los Angeles Mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa.

    And, what’s next for Matt Gonzalez and Attorney General and former Governor Jerry Brown Oval Office?

    SF: Busing Homeless Across The Bay

    After conferring with the Coalition On Homelessness as well as Community and Business leaders, Mayor Gavin Newsom withdrew his veto to allow legislation unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors in which San Francisco will begin busing homeless to Marin County.

    Strangely, the controversial Busing Resolution was a jointly introduced by the unlikely alliance of Liberal Lefty District 6 Supervisor, Chris Daly, and Nouveau Conservative District 8 Supervisor, Bevan Duffy.

    Daly’s district includes the Tenderloin, an area with a huge concentration of liquor stores and one of the worst chronic drugs and alcohol problem in the nation, while Bevan Duffy’s District 8, includes the Castro, a predominantly gay neighborhood, and attributes its increasingly conservative vote to its sky rocketing real estate prices.

    Like a bad ‘80s John Hughes movie (redundant), Daly and Duffy, two warring Supes from different sides of the track bury one hatchet to bury another in the back of a mutual enemy: Poverty/Prosperity.
    Okay. Let's say, they agree on the same antidote not the same poison.

    Daly wants to help his homeless constituants, who earn an average $5.00 dollars a day, panhandling to the Tenderloin's overcrowded, depressed economy, to reach more affluent neighborhoods across the bay:
    “Just because one does not have a home in the Tenderloin, shouldn’t prevent them from not having a home in Marin County too.”
    ... While Duffy wants to serve taxpayers by helping the ambitious few who stumbled upon the Castro to find their way out.

    Regardless, San Francisco's Odd Couple lauded an independent study reporting panhandlers in Marin County earn nearly four-times as much, averaging $19.75 per day. Moreover, Marin County environmentalist advocate busing, arguing homelessness represents a positive, critical externality to the eco-system, long since missing in Marin.

    Homeless contribute to the recycling process, collecting up to three-times their own weight in a 24-hour period; and, as a byproduct, their waste helps to irrigate and fertilize front lawns as well as any dirty needle syringes left behind after entravenous drug use can help to aerate topsoil and improve drainage.
    Just imagine a full, soft clover patch so school children can run barefoot, year round!
    Meantime, liquor store owners remain cautiously optimistic opting for a "wait-and-see" approach to the homeless free trade agreement - hoping their customers will return home with full pockets and empty bellies.

    Having sold liquor to the Tenderloin's homeless for generations, the majority of shop owners, already live in Marin, and would be happy set up shop closer to home.

    "I always dreamed we move business to Marin, close to daycare center and house of worship"
    Conversely, the nomadic crack dealers with far less overhead are equally concerned to stake their claim; and plan to occupy front seats on the earliest buses out of town.

    Great News for Clean, Safe Streets!

    Free Tenderloin

    Dalai Lama meet Daly Drama.

    When District 6 (Tenderloin) Supervisor, Chris Daly aka Boy Robbing in the Hood, isn’t stealing taxes for the poor, he’s busy grounding the Blue Angles or slandering Mayor Gavin Newsom (on behalf of his agenda).

    Now, local Activist/Pacifist boob wants to start a Revolution: Free Tibet.

    We all want to change the world, but when you talk about Boycotts, don’t you know that you can count me out!

    Daly's speaking out at Human Rights Torch Relay protests of the Beijing Olympics as well as wasting our tax dollars passing useless resolutions to condemn human rights violations from 7000 miles away to China (tunneling) while a record numbers fall in the Tenderloin war zone to homicides; overdoses on his watch.

    The Dalai Lama wouldn't be caught dead in the Tenderloin; rather he reincarnate as sleazy politician, Daly Drama.

    Besides, the "Free Tibet" Volkswagon Bus pulled away 50-years ago. Leave foreign police to the Oval Office. The Executive Branch is the appropriate level for dialog with China as well as Congress to decide economic sanctions; and President George W. Bush has already contacted Chinese President Hu Jintao.

    You want to fight the Chinese, get your prayer beads and join the Tibetan Army.
    Meatime, shut the f*ck up! Sport should transcend politics. Our politicians were wrong to boycott the Moscow Games in 1980 and the Soviet Union was wrong to boycott Los Angeles 1984. Not, only did the athletes and the fans suffer; yet, human rights did too.

    Our individual quest for fleeting glory is not so unique while our ultimate defete unites all with humility, reverence and fraternity. Essentially, sport is a model as well a medium for peace... and in the darkest of times escape.

    Never Forget: 911.

    And, don’t forget “Mr. November” (Derek Jeter) who hit a 3-2 pitch over the right field fence to break a 3-3 tenth inning tie in a World Series delayed a week due to the tragic terrorist attacks that took so many lives including James W. Barbella. That homer gave pause to panic and cause to smile; most importantly for the whole world to watch - freedom prevail!

    If closed-minded, shit-for-brains politicians, like Chris Daly, interfered with the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin to protest Nazi Germany, then a Black-American athlete, Jesse Owens, would have had no voice to silence Nazi propaganda of Aryan racial superiority.

    Instead, Adolf Hitler faded into the stands and Jesse Owens triumphed with four gold medals.

    Daly would do well to quit his chirping about Tiananmen Square, Red Square, wherever; and remember his lofty supervisor perch only affords him a bird's eye view of the Union Square... so, start cleaning up San Francisco!
    If Daly can’t run for gold and won’t run for Mayor, how's he to effect any measure of change overseas? And, for all his grumbing, mumbling and stumbling he's looking less John Lennon and more Chairman Mao - ain't gonna make it with anyon, anyhow!

    Imagine all the people signing a petition to Recall Chris Daly. It's easy if you try.
    Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright, alright, alright.

    Bill's Protégé Mucking Clinton's '08 Election

    Mayhill Fowler of the Huffington Post writes of a couple of philanderers in Hillary Clinton’s life, screwing her over – Her husband, Bill, and his protégé, Gavin Newsom.

    March 10, 2008

    San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is one of the prettiest but alas not one of the sharpest in the Democratic pencil box. Chatting with local pundit Phil Matier, in less than two minutes on the early morning news Mayor Newsom confirms the Clinton game plan for winning the Democratic presidential nomination. "It's a very subjective thing--intelligence analysis. You can go either way," Newsom informs Matier. Since when does a city mayor know anything about national intelligence analysis? For that matter, how much do mere senators know?

    The only person currently engaged in Election 2008 who can speak authoritatively on this subject is Bill Clinton. Just returned from junketing with the former President around Texas, Gavin is parroting Bill, who clearly had a good time holding forth in the back of that black Texas SUV.

    "She [Hillary] is the best to go one-on-one against John McCain on the only issue that could stop us in November," Newsom says, "and that's the issue of national security."

    "Do you think that's what will win the cup?" Matier asks.

    Apparently, personal scandals are not an issue in Newsom's mind. It's all about leadership. "Do you think for a second the Bush Administration will take all that objective data and hesitate to manipulate it in the context of this campaign?" Newsom rejoins. Trust me--this reasoning is way too Machiavellian for the Mayor. But the Clintons? They anticipate a trumped-up terrorist scare? Or a manufactured overseas crisis that calls to John McCain's specific expertise?

    "It's a very subjective thing--intelligence analysis. You can go either way. And McCain will do everything to focus attention on every little thing that's happening in Israel, North Korea or Pakistan or wherever else in the world. . . . They will play on fear. We know that fear works."

    Indeed. The Clintons know. And what a national election they are crafting! McCain the fearmaster versus Clinton the fearmonger. Wait a minute. Isn't this allowing McCain and the Republicans to set the agenda for the election? Or is national security the issue--not the economy, not health care, not education--that Hillary Clinton is most looking forward to delving?

    Before she plants that commander-in-chief standard, however, Clinton, like Obama, needs to hone her skill set. It was clear in the last debate, for example, that neither senator knew anything about Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev--not even the basic facts at Tim Russert's command. Clinton couldn't quite get his name, much less pronounce it. While she's mastering all things Russian, she'd better add Kazakhstan. Linking Bill Clinton to the venal Nursultan Nazarbayev could help McCain enough, without any Machiavellianism. Fear may not be needed if Bill Clinton has been engaging abroad in the kind of questionable deal-making that once got him in so much trouble at home.

    Willie Brown: Newsom's Racist

    Willy Brown is “Back in Black,” pimping his new autobiography, “Basic Brown.”

    With all the credibility of former Major League Baseball player, Jose Conseco's Rampant 'Roids tell all book, "Juiced", Slick Willie's written attacks of his successor as mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, of racism in appointments, are biased, unbased and solely motivated by the color of money.

    Today’s City Hall reflects the best and brightest faces of The City – period. On the contrary, I'd imagine a white male mayor would be tempted to leverage minority faces, whether it is sex, race or religion, for political gain.

    MLK's dream is promotion by merit. Add to that equation of equality the law of averages (over time) and City Hall's portrait should bare a picture perfect pallet proportionate to its population.

    Willie contends:

    "When I was mayor of San Francisco I made a point to appoint as many qualified blacks as I could to city posts. Now when I walk around city hall, I see almost no black faces. When I left, blacks were ousted along with me."

    I’m too far away and know too few details about any one of Newsom’s appointees to either defend his selections case by case or cast any speculation.

    Yet, from where I'm sitting, looking at a City Hall's diverse complexion in the reflection staring back at me, I'd have to dissagree. There are just too many high profile minority appointees like Police Chief Heather Fong that come to mind for Willie's words to ring true; and it were, then wouldn't this be an indictment of his former administration, not Newsom's?

    Confirming, Willie, not Newsom, appointed with Race in mind.

    149-Decibels In The Shade

    The current building boom that is taking place in SF Central City area at this very moment will add several thousands of new dwellings to the service area of Fire Station 3 -- already the busiest in the nation*.

    Due to the development and the practice of dispatching a fire truck and an ambulance on every medical call (near 100,000 annually), a significant increase in the already hourly around-the-clock noise from 140-decibel air horns and sirens is to be expected unless effective measures are put in place by the SF Fire Department to reduce the noise.

    The Shake Up!

    • San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom continues to shake things up, ordering police investigators to put on uniforms and patrol streets at night to help combat the city's escalating violence.

      Police officials say an unspecified number of officers from the department's narcotics and gang task force units have been reassigned to beef up patrol units in high crime areas.

      The move comes after San Francisco reported 98 homicides last year, the most in a dozen years. Six people have been killed in the city so far this year.

      A spokesman for the mayor says, Gavin’s upset with the homicide rate and wants more done to reduce violent crime.

      Great news!

    Ace In The Bullpen

    The American businessman-politician has a long and storied history which brings us to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

    This forthright billionaire just may have the right combination of managerial, risk-taking, and political skills to create a new model for public service and new model – starting with restructuring his office itself.

    Bloomberg’s bullpen-style office concept in city government was made famous during his 2002 State of the City address, saying that it was created to “improve efficiency” and foster creativity. The idea comes from the stock-market trading-floor layout in which everyone works together in one big room.

    Today, San Francisco’s reinvigorated Mayor Gavin Newsom is developing a bullpen plan in which to arrange cubicles in Room 201 — which is currently used for occasional meetings — In addition to better exchanging of ideas through improved proximity in the bullpen, the mayor and his staff plan to actually conduct their business there.

    Typically, it’s Local “Loco” Liberal and Resident Nancy Boy, Brock of SFist, whose is too blinded by his love to hate the incumbent mayor (and moderate) to embrace the very progressive (and proven) ideas, he espouses.

    And now, it looks like Brock’s liberal leanings have tipped the scales at SFist such that to include fellow blogger Jon in his (left) brainwashing.

    Check out Jon’s shortsighted, short-fused reaction likening Gavin’s trading spaces to a “Battlestar Galactica” shake up - it’s the journalistic equivelent to getting cut-off by a Toyota Prius with a whirled peas bumper sticker.
    SFist's liberal leanings make 'Left in SF' look like the 'Right Wing News.'
    Borrowing ideas from other mayors is nothing new or unusual for Newsom. In the summer of 2005, Newsom toured Chicago with Mayor Richard Daley and touted that city’s use of surveillance cameras — which has now been initiated in San Francisco — to combat crime.

    Additionally, the Mayor modeled:
    • The City’s SF Stat program — which tracks and reports how well city departments are performing — on Baltimore’s CitiStat.

    • The City’s Community Courts — which will process Quality of Life crimes — on Manhattan’s Community Courts.

    • The City’s 311 24-Hour Hotline — which routes non-emergency city service calls — in the last decade the following cities have adopted a three-digit system: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Dallas and Minneapolis.

    The post also criticizes Newsom for giving raises and new job titles to worthy staff members. I say you get what you pay for. If you want to turn your football team around, hire Bill Parcels.

    Newsom’s Press Secretary, Nathan Ballard, says that all these people are proven professionals, possessing the necessary skill set and experience to help the city and are within budget.

    Meet Joanna Newsom

    Meet Joanna Newsom, a harpist, pianist, singer, songwriter and also the 2nd cousin (once removed) of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

    Newsom's work has become prominent on the indie rock scene, and her profile has risen, in part due to a number of live shows and appearances on The Jimmy Kimmel Show on ABC.

    Both Newsom's harp playing and vocal style are unconventional… and so is she.

    • Dating a musician known as Smog

    • Favorite animal is a Seahorse, but she considers herself a land animal… so she would rather be a horse, but only a wild horse… not one which is owned - Whoa Whoa Whoa lil' doggy.

    • Collaboartions include Cannabis Sativa, Galerina, and Psilocybe.

    My best guess is she votes Green Party and Rainbow Coalition too. Check out her polymetric interview.

    Gavin Newsom: Losing My Religion

    As a Wikipedia Edit War wages leaps and bounds regarding Gavin Newsom’s right to call himself a Roman Catholic, photographer Bill Wilson captures the Mayor campaigning for Hillary Clinton in the hood.

    The debate contests one cannot be considered Roman Catholic under the circumstances of divorce and remarriage - (See example).

    While the consensus disagrees, arguing if the article subject [Gavin Newsom] considers himself Catholic, it isn't for editors to decide amongst themselves that he isn't.

    San Francisco's resident Cougar Cub and renowned blogger, Beth Spotswood, describes the above photo:

    "We've got the Virgin Mary, Hillary Clinton and Jesus."

    ... And, dont forget the Graffiti).

    Meantime, everyone knows, Gavin’s ex-girlfriend, CIA Miami Actress Sofia Milos converted him to the Church of Scientology:

    Actually, The city of San Francisco has ordered a Scientology group to stop using a picture of Mayor Gavin Newsom on its promotional materials, heartily endorsing founder L. Ron Hubbard's writings.

    A group called the Way to Happiness Foundation International sent a box full of booklets to Newsom's City Hall office describing some of Scientology's core principles.

    The pamphlets came emblazoned with the seal of the city of San Francisco and featured a picture of a smiling Newsom with a fictitious letter from him.
