A new non-profit report says the Bay Area’s roads are the worst in the nation. Why are our roads so bad?

· No justice, no roads.

· We haven’t got an “Uber for quarterly transportation funding allocations and infrastructure maintenance.”

· Illegal immigrants are taking our Quikrete!

· One man’s “pothole” is another man’s “three-dimensional negative space graffiti installation.”

· Ross Mirkarimi, if Ed Lee can possibly pin this on him.

· Cyclists' refusal to come to a complete stop causes severe wear-and-tear on asphalt.

· So much smugness makes Google buses really heavy.

· Jerry Brown's "rainy-day fund" inadequate for covering massive repair costs incurred on that one day it actually rained.

· San Francisco’s 2015-17 budget only $9 billion.

· Our roads aren’t “bad” – they’re artisanal!

  • 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.'"
