Woeful White Women Seek Princessa Parking Permits

San Francisco - I live, work, bike, and drive in San Francisco on a daily basis.  Part of my job includes delivering prepared, Organic meals to wealthy clients in Cow Hollow (How Shallow), Pacific Heights (Specific Whites), and the Marina (Farina) Districts.  I often see cars double-parked for 10-15 minutes in those neighborhoods, only to see a stay-at-home mom emerge from the home to dump her child into a nannies waiting car to take the child on a playdate, or other activity.  

     I often walk into homes with 1, or sometimes 2, nannies present, yet am shocked to find the mother of the child(ren) at the residence when i arrive.  Why should these affluent women be given more privilege than life has already blessed them with. Parking is for city residents ONLY.

     My mother worked and raised 2 children with help from NO ONE.  That's a mother!

     Do these mothers (and i use that term lightly) expect neighbors to give up their access to public, residential parking (or what is in actuality publicly-funded, private vehicle storage),

Bikes Without Brakes, Brains

San Francisco - I recently caught wind of an incident through the SF Examiner.
Apparently, riding a bicycle in San Francisco with no brakes doesn't kill people, bicyclists with no brains do.  The inherently dangerous act is only magnified by the fact that this city is one of the most topologically diverse urban areas on the planet. 
A little forethought goes a long way in turning a bicycle-bearing hipster into a respectable citizen.  A desire for constant style sense and nostalgic conveyances don't justify blatant law breaking and pedestrian smashing.
