Critical Mass Has Become a Pain in SF's A--!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jul 28, 2007

The monthly Critical Mass bike ride will take place today beginning at 6 p.m., according to San Francisco police. Critical Mass is a bunch of idiots who feel like they’re making a difference by riding their bikes recklessly, clogging up traffic, antagonizing drivers and pedestrians and basically acting like obnoxious a-holes. For some reason, they think they’re making some type of statement about freedom and independence and the supposed rights of cyclists. But, in the end, all they’re doing is pissing people off. I have witnessed at least half a dozen Critical Mass rides and I’ve... (more)

...game will go. That’s why the NBA keeps their officials’ game schedules a secret. If Donaghy leaked any of this information, it could have disastrous effects on the integrity of the game and mean that maybe hundreds of NBA games were compromised. In further developments today, police staked out former NBA referee Tim Donaghy's home after he received two telephone threats following disclosure that the FBI is investigating him for betting on games he worked. Both calls seemed to come from the same unidentified caller, Manatee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Randy Warren... (more)

San Francisco is Going Bonkers for Bonds

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jul 21, 2007

...week's games are selling for upward of $300. He figures that's just the beginning. "It's going to be very crazy," he said. "People are going to want to be there for the tying or record-breaking home run. When he's on 754, each game is going to be a premium game." The Giants, San Francisco police and the Coast Guard are preparing for the craziness by beefing up security in and around AT&T Park. The Giants normally sell several hundred standing-room-only tickets for big games, and many of those ticket-holders congregate in the arcade section. That's going to be harder to do this... (more)

Red Light Cameras: Accident Reductor or Money- Maker

By Sheena B, published on Jul 19, 2007

...a driver is trying to avoid the camera and not going through a light. A person can easily cause a collision if he slams on his brakes to avoid running the light. So officials should propose a better system with traffic lights, that way it would not lead to an accident. Statistics from Houston Police taken from 11 intersections from the start of the project conclude that accidents in seven intersections have decreased, while four increased. Even though red light cameras are used to protect drivers, it shows that people will still disobey the law no matter what's in front of them. Now... (more)

By sanity check, published on Jul 19, 2007

... levels knew about these things. "Baby Killer" was a common term in the 1960s and early 70s. Just pick up an old National Lampoon or copies of any of the underground newspapers of the time. The 1960s were extremely violent times. Quick read of the AVAILABLE newspapers and you have stories of police officers and antiwar protesters fighting in the streets. And for the record, spitting by both men and woman is easily documented. A sampling? Antiwar demonstrators instructed to spit on LBJ's car. Bob Hope's car was spit on when it was stopped by antiwar protestors as he tried to attend the... (more)

Maroon 5's Latest Album "It Won't Be Soon Before Long"

By Sheena B, published on Jul 12, 2007

...have the record just right to deliver to their fans. Their plan worked, because It Won't Be Soon Before Long is an arresting change from their debut album. The band has come a long way from its humble beginnings as Kara's Flowers. With help from their influences, which include Prince and The Police, the group symbolized an assorted mix of pop dance tracks to liven a party to a little jazz to smooth the album out. "If I Never See Your Face Again" provides a funk filled sound that is nonexistent in today's music. "Makes Me Wonder" brings out the electronic beats that a person can easily... (more)

Taking Responsibility For What We Do As A Nation

By Steven Blake, published on Jul 10, 2007

...newspapers. If you answer with the first one, shame on you! You have just said our 3,606 troops have died for nothing? I for one refuse to believe that. As a nation we are trying to help rebuild this nation and make it a better place for the people. We are training their security forces and police. We are giving time to the new government to sit down and work out the different issues between different factions. It is going to take time. There is a lot of deep seeded anger over there against each other and us as well. But I am so tired of hearing the media only talk about the bad things... (more)

The Necessity of Foresight

...state here in the boundaries of America, causing our global neighbors to respond to this global occupation and control with contempt, distrust, and suspicion. America has historically unseated foreign leaders and governments in order to meet its own objectives and to further control or police those foreign governments. Are there consequences to these actions by our government and is the sudden rise of terrorism one of these consequences? There is also another offender which has gone unnoticed by the American citizen and that is this dictatorship will also infringe on the... (more)
