Re: Housing. It would be interesting to know how many homes are now “ghost homes” owned as investments but not occupied.

Josh Becker is another out-of-state carpetbagger who has decided to locate here in California. Just like Weiner in San Francisco, he will toe the party line and want to enforce housing mandates, inflicted on us by the democrats who now control the state.

He has betrayed the vast majority of city and counties who DO NOT want single family housing OUTLAWED, by voting yes for SB 9. (It really doesn't matter what the voters want, it matters what the party agenda is!).

Liberals a question for you? HOW OFTEN WILL YOU CONTINUE TO PICK UP THAT BAR OF SOAP THAT SLIPPED OUT OF YOUR HAND IN THE PRISION SHOWER?

First, let's start with the fun part of today's SF Comicle piece about the drought. They note that they now have a "Data Spotlight" where "The Chronicle this year hired five journalists who will use data-driven techniques to cover news stories across the Bay Area. The team's work will appear in the newspaper on Sundays and Mondays."

Yikes! So what the hell were they hiring before. Data idiots? And what about the paper on Tuesdays thru Saturdays? Are those issues just Herb Caen fishwrap? Well, you know the answer to that rhetorical question.

Now on to the drought. Headline "Drought water restrictions unlikely in the Bay Area". Our five little data mavens apparently missed the Santa Clara Valley declaration last week. How can something be "unlikely" when it has ALREADY HAPPENED?

Nevermind. At least they are getting up to freshman-level knowledge about where we get our water and what the current levels are. But man, it's gonna take a lot of youthful "data-driven techniques" and homework to just get the basics right. Here. Read the firm grip on the obvious for yourself:

“The consequences of running out of supply are too great,” said Steve Ritchie, assistant general manager for water at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. “That cannot happen.”
