Here is a useless Government Agency, that should be shut down or greatly reduced.

Think the City will cut back on the number of cars it puts on the road?

How about police officers share a car? How about they ride a bike? How about they walk their beat?

All the city work trucks I see driving around with one person in them.

Do as I say, not as I do. That should be the logo on every city, state, and federal building.

I often wonder why one market is allowed to spew so much smoke across a neighborhood. Walking Castro Street near El Camino seeing, breathing so much smoke from Rose Market's barbeque every day of the week from 10:30am-8:00pm is terrible. Why are they allowed to do this every day, let alone on Spare-the-Air days?
