As an added benefit from my suggestion, it wouldn't just be for "Chinatown commuters." A free tram running right down the side of Union Square would attract tourist, pollinating them all the way to North Beach (money-money-money-money...). This commute is currently a headache even for residents. Most tourist end up walking it, which is why a lot of them decide to stay downtown. Plus our progressive anti-car people must love the aspect of closing down one more street in the city! A cause I usually roll my eyes to, but in this case it actually creates progress.
I hope they smite this monstrosity. Did anyone ever measure the distance users will travel down to and back up from this underground system? If its anything like other Bart stations, the distance will be about the same distance from central Chinatown to Market (1st main stop) It's only about another 100 yards to Catrain. For an independent line servicing this congested route, I suggest surface tram on rails. From Columbus to Catrain. Close Stockton to traffic (aside from 2 outer service lanes) and run this route frequently. To make it work, it wouldn't be like current rail system on Market. But open sided trams like they use in most large amusement parks. But heres the real shocking part... don't charge (oh, my!). Yes, make this a free connection, it would speed up loading time, and save commuters lots of up-and-down walking time, not to mention congestion down below. And it could be built for a fraction of this budget. Realistically, under a 100M. It would be easier to dismantle in 30 years when they change to a better solution (my money is on exterior moveable sidewalk) but until then this system would save time and money all around.
Simple solution: Don't build the apartments. Let the welfare recipients move to Oakland.
Slap on the wrist, but they better not laugh too soon. Now Apple can sue them in Civil Court, maybe take them for hundreds of thousands based on damages/losses to their business. They probably wont... but they should.
Ann Coulter's new best-seller DEMONIC - HOW THE LIBERAL MOB IS ENDANGERING AMERICA explains the psychology and idiocy behind this crap. It's almost prophetic given the current events in England and now here. But most important, it explains how to deal with it. It must be stopped, they need to start shooting these mofo's.
I give credit where credit is due; I applaud the SF Examiner for finally relaying factual descriptions of crime suspects. Whitewashing the details (no pun intended) made reporting the stories meaningless. At least with an accurate account people are aware of what is occurring in the city. Will a disparity arise in these reportings regarding the demographics of crime suspects over time? Probably. But hiding facts from the public is not going to help in solving our crime problems. Awareness is the first step, and its news outlets responsibility to get those facts out there.
