The Cosco Busan oil spill, now called the "greatest Bay Area maritime disaster in twenty years" is now spilling, figuratively speaking, beyond all the oil-soked birds and crab season hiatus into the territory of terrorism and security issues.

At a House Subcommittee meeting on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, some publication I've never heard of called Logistics Management reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised the specter of deliberate attacks on the San Francisco Bay:

“What would happen if terrorists decided to try something like this? ... That is why DHS (Department of Homeland Security) should get involved."

Oh great Nancy. Way to give the terrorists ideas. First they attacked our democracy, next thing you know they'll be coming for our Cioppino too. Is nothing scared?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
