Commented on Mayor: Mirkarimi Video "does allow people to view what happened at that time"
Ed Lee declined to meet with Eliana Mirkarimi to hear what she had to say and has never seen the video himself. He pulled the trigger only to find that his gun wasn’t loaded with any evidence. We would all...
Commented on Former East Bay Resident Ed Lee Didn't Vote For An SF Mayor Until 1999
Rose Pak, it might be noted, still isn’t a San Francisco registered voter. Kind of amazing, isn’t it?...
Commented on What Did Ed Lee, Rose Pak Do In Alleged Meeting With PG&E? What's Up With That $54 Million Line Item? Room 200 Isn't Saying
Good job of sleuthing out this episode. I’m afraid this is what we would get for the next four years. I have known Ed Lee for more than 20 years, and this is not the Ed Lee of 20 years...
Commented on Aspiring Police Commissioner Faces Questions About Domestic Violence Incident
“aspiring” certainly seems the appropriate adjective. Mr. Turman recently applied to serve on the Ethics Commission, and withdrew at the hearing on his qualifications began. Now he is applying for the Police Commission. He currently serves on the Human Rights...

Commented on D6 Supe Hates America's Cup; Says "Billionaire Yacht Race" Won't Benefit SF
One thing is for certain: no one has asked what entity receives the 75-year rent-free lease along our waterfront. Supposedly it goes to an "Events Committee" which turns out to be two groups -- the Golden Gate Yacht Club, where...
Commented on More LGBT Woes For Target: Chain Could Lose SF City Contract Over Same-Sex Benefits
Apparently Ms. Sparks and others have never been to SFGH late at night and needed a prescription. The emergency room staff will gladly point you several blocks down the street to an all-night Walgreens which can receive the prescription via...
Commented on Mayor: Feud With Media Over, Moving Forward On Budget
Take a look at Newsom's interview with Hank Plante at KPIX to judge for yourself whether Newsom's feud with the media is over. Should be on their website. You can bet it won't be on Newsom's web site....
Commented on The Chronicle/Gate's Contradictory Views Regarding "Credit" And Linking
What I'd really like to see is attribution to political consultants and hit men when they plant stories for their clients, like Gary South in Carla's frequent reports on Jerry Brown, or laudatory reports on Newsom. Why give cover to...
