Prostitution more popular in SF than public power

Public power advocates---take a bow, Bay Guardian and Ross Mirkarimi---need to take a close look at the more or less final election numbers and compare the vote on public power with the vote on legalizing prostitution:
Proposition H (public power): lost 61% to 39% (210,963 against and 132,499 for).
Proposition K (legalizing prostitution in SF): lost 59% to 41% (201, 482 against and 139,471 for).
More people voted to legalize prostitution (139,471) than voted for public power (132,499).

Congestion pricing in SF?

It's bracing to read the online comments on the congestion pricing article in this morning's Chronicle. There are so many---and they're still coming in---I don't have time to read them all. At last count, there were 944. The comments are running about 99% negative on the ultimate anti-car measure planned for us here in Progressive Land. Of course Mirkarimi, McGoldrick, and Ammiano like the idea. Can the Murk really think he'll ever be a viable candidate for mayor of SF?

"Leave the city alone"

Anonymous has left a new comment:

"Rob, please. Tend to your ailing mother and leave the city alone."

Gee, Anon, you sure leave a lot of comments. My mother isn't "ailing," unless you consider old age itself a disease. She's 93-years-old, which suggests that longevity is in the Anderson line and that you'll have to endure many more years of negativity from District 5 Diary about the damage you smug, self-righteous progressives are doing to the city.
