Today's Chronicle reports MUNI vehicles have been in 2,256 accidents involving passengers and vehicles between July 2006 and July 2007. The number has made safety a priority for MUNI's parents, the MTA, but the position of safety and training manager has been vacant. A city report released yesterday shows funds allocated to hire a new safety manager were diverted to hire Newsom aide and Director of Climate Wade Crowfoot who will earn $160,720 this year.

Newsom excuses the diversion of funds by saying the climate protection director will focus partially on public transit. Since MTA vehicles are killing SF citizens faster then climate, we call bullshit. -Andy Wright

  • 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.'"
