The downtown library has posted driving directions to the nearest branch for patrons to use while both the new and old downtown branches are closed. Sure hope you didn't lose your home and car when the city cut library staff and hours. Working class and poor people without cars aren't visible to the new palatial library elite--or aren't wanted.

Q- many trolly cops does it take to issue a ticket to one person?

A- minimum of 5

 one to find that you don't have fair

 that one and another to try and tell you your under arrest

 those two and another to make sure their capture doesn't get way

(after all you are under arrest)

  one of the above three and yet another to stand there and talk crap

  and finally,  the one that is actually able to write the ticket,

because none of the goons above are able to issue tickets

It's called trolley (not "trolly"). It's called fare (not "fair"). It's you're (not "your") under arrest.

It's a Miracle.

A perusal of available residential hotels (SROs) on the list available from the San Diego Housing Commission has revealed that the famed Hotel San Diego is still open for business and housing tenants despite having been demolished for Federal construction years ago. How authorities worked out how to provide Federal offices and beds for the poor has not been revealed. It is hoped that revelation of the trick will allow housing of the indigent in locations currently occupied in business towers, military installations, and zoo enclosures.

About ten years ago a friend of mine named Brian and I were walking west bound downtown on C street between 7th and 6th avenues. We both worked for Moe at San Diego Bikeshop and were on a sort of break and as we approached the corner a panhandler comes up to us and said more than asked, "...spare some change bro?" Without missing a beat, Brian matter of factly replied, " change comes from within man." Now you must know this. Brian is a smartass so he was just being snide and not mean but I thought it was hilarious! Of course every chance I get, I must use it. Not all the time mind you, only when I deem it appropriate and spontaneous. How can you be spontaneous after a thousand uses? Well, make it sound so, of course. Anyways CHANGE DOES COME FROM WITHIN! So if you're at a point were you're not happy, change your reality and push yourself hard. Not slacker hard, but real hard. If nothing changes, well my friend...nothing changes. Push!

City of San Diego to eliminate affordable apts in the city. Said an undisclosed spokesman for the city, "By not updating our information regarding affordable apartments, or by not providing complete information regarding which, we are encouraging the indigent and destitute to move out to other parts, and thus saving apartment space for decent, upright human beings."

San Diego expects to be 'poor frei'...(I mean)...poor free by 2016. At which time San Diego will be declared an inhabitation restricted to only the rich and well to do. The remains of the last of the housing refugees should be eaten by scavengers in 2015.

Almost 500 San Diego residents crowded around the downtown library on Sunday, March 16, 2014, waiting for the doors to open at 1:00 p.m. Within minutes all of the library's approximately 400 computers with broadband internet access were in use by patrons, and reservations were being made for the next available computer an hour or two later.

San Diego, like most cities in the U.S., has a much larger population of low income people than of wealthy people. For many, broadband computer connections, such as those available from Cox Communications and AT&T, are, at what appears to be an artificially controlled price of about $39.00 a month (after introductory offers), simply unaffordable. These are some of the most expensive, and also the slowest, "high-speed" internet connections in the world.

While library computers are usually available during the day on weekdays, many students and workers can only get to the library in the evening or on weekends.

I was one of the naysayers when the new library was being built, believing that the money would have been better spent on homeless shelters (the term "affordable housing" in San Diego seems to refer to housing that homeless people and minimum-wage workers cannot afford). One of the things I told all and sundry was that I doubted if the new library would have enough computers to meet the needs of the community. But when the new library opened, I apologized, as it did seem to have plenty of computers.

Now it appears that I was partially correct in the first place. At times of peak need, like evenings and weekends, access to computers can be a scramble. Like homelessness, the lack of affordable internet access is a problem that San Diego can sometimes alleviate to a degree, but can never solve as long as profits take priority over the needs of people.
