Earthquakes are a bit scary.

You see, if the roadways/freeways collapse, then you can't travel on them, or under them, or over them.

You are trapped!

This is a bit nerve wracking.

We hope that the strengthening that CalTrans did after Loma Prieta and Northridge, will prevent the damage shown above. This pic is from Chile on Saturday.

Hey! I'm only running a quote.

(From today's Health Summit at Blair House) (That's VPOTUS above. He said this.)

"I'm always reluctant after being here 37 years to tell people what the American people think. I think it requires a little bit of humility to be able to know what the American people think, and I don't, I can't swear I do. I know what I think. I think I know what they think. But I'm not sure what they think. And the second point I'd make is..."

Now, back to our regular programming.

San Francisco Municipal Railway (aka MUNI)

I follow @sfappeal on Twitter, and 3 or 4 times each day they report on a collision/injury/death on the San Francisco Municipal Railway, aka Muni. Hence, my affection for the trollys, ancient or otherwise.
Now, I just have to get rid of these images. (I've never ridden Muni!) Enjoy.

(I think there are several messages herein)

Housing Crisis?

Only in the Socialist Demcratic Republic of Berkeley. Nevermind the inherent conflict between "democratic" and "republic." This is Berkeley, after all.

And, for any housing-deficient birds out there, take your pick.
