List: Bridging the safety gap 

Wednesday, Nov 18 2009

In light of the recent structural failures on the Bay Bridge — even after repairs — how is Caltrans planning to ensure that the bridge remains safe in the future?

• Next time, use double-sided tape

• Positive thinking

• Include a wolf on the construction team: Wolves have supersharp senses

• Pay off Willie Brown, like the man asked

• Make it a "community bridge"that any San Franciscans can come and repair in their spare time

• Add more S-curves

• Ask the Board of Supervisors to pass a resolution urging the bridge not to collapse

• It doesn't matter: The Internet is making bridges obsolete

• Have everyone drive lighter cars

• Weatherproof it

• Gavin Newsom's secret recipe for hair product will keep anything in place

  • 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.'"
