SF: Prop A – Clean and Safe Neighborhood Park Bonds, 2008

To my surprise, there are a couple of bonds measures that affect the residents of San Francisco to be voted on along with the primaries and State propositions.

Proposition A calls for issuing general obligation bonds worth $185,000,000 to be used to improve and repair the City’s public parks. This bond is the first step in the City’s 10-year Capital plan to renovate and retrofit the City’s infrastructure; the plan was passed by the voters last year.

Drama in the Primaries all but over

This is disappointing.

In the past, the primaries have always been predetermined before the 2nd wave of states can contribute to the match. This year was suppose to be different.

President Bush’s State of the Union Address ’08 Cliff Notes

When a person as strongly polarizing as President Bush gives a speech to a split audience, watching the audience reactions is always entertaining. The atmosphere feels like a college basketball rivarly game where one side claps loudly after every pause while the other side sits quietly with arms folded wearing an expression of distaste.
