    I’m sure the whole state will subsidize the damage costs. Along with shareholders.

    Oh yeah, the CPUC will definitely see to it that the CA ratepayers and general taxpayers bail out PG&E.

    Heading into SF tonight on BART. The late "party" return trip is always amusing on a weekend. After 11pm it pretty much falls into three groups:
    1) Couples that are making out and need a room fast
    2) Groups that didn't hook up and they trash talk loudly about the people who rejected them at the bars/clubs/parties
    3) The rest of us

    Speaking of BART, there is a guy who has a website the BARTidiothalloffame.com and he posted this photo:

    Downside protection?

    She's picked up two, so either someone else is involved or they'll have to be positioned quite carefully.

    OK, I actually need some advice. Just got hit up by my Mom's cousins visiting from Canada. Where to take three merry but not super mobile (70s & 80s, ages not decades) widows for a memorable lunch in the city?

    Scoma's would be a good alternative for a more rustic environment. My dad’s (80 yo) favorite and a must when he visits.

    Neiman Marcus Rotunda is a big hit with that demographic. “Ladies who lunch” also like the Fairmont.

    Back here for a few days...man I guess I'm happy they are building condos everywhere, but who the hell decided they all have to look like futuristic prisons with wooden paneling? They're all basically identical, and terribly ugly. Seems like good design got left out of the triple constraint of speed, cost, and aesthetics.

    Actually, San Francisco has been far behind the curve when it comes to architecture for decades. It's odd to think that would be the case when the city was such a center of creativity for music, art, design, film, etc. for so long. But, how many significant, architecturally speaking, buildings have been built in SF since the the mid 1900's. Moma is about as close to one that I can think of. Everything else is pretty utilitarian with, at best, a little window dressing.

    I dunno man, SF is leading the way in alley-front tent property, and cardboard structures with ikea bag insulation. Haven't seen anything quite like it.

    And now there's Salesforce Tower and the Transbay Terminal.
