BART Swears It's Not Responsible for Transit Stickers Calling Unions "Brats"

Sticks and stones ... - FACEBOOK/ BART IDIOT HALL OF FAME

If you're a regular BART passenger you might have noticed these somewhat new stickers appearing on train cars in the last few weeks which, without naming names, refer to the unions as "brats."

While the obvious culprits are BART managers, Rick Rice, spokesman for the transit agency told us that in no way was the BART District involved in the childish and inaccurate sticker art.

"We have been seeing and removing those stickers for several weeks," Rice told us via email. "The District has no idea of the source -- it certainly isn't anything we have done or approve of."

That's good news. It would be somewhat distressing to find out that amid a serious dispute over money, the district spent money on a name-calling campaign.

On another note, the two sides were back at it today, and, no, things are not going well.

  • 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.'"
