Gotta love corporate translations. An "accidental release" is a leak or spill to the rest of the English speaking world.
They make it so easy for us to hate them.

On Photos of Ruptured Pipeline Finally Released

The above commenters are right. What an ignorant and foolhardy thing to build right to the sand embankment. They will do it because they can. They will market it to compete with Bacara and The Biltmore, and they will tout the features those two places don't have.
Joke will be on it when they, unlike the other resorts, vanish in a sea swell. But they will have made their killing, so why should they care?
I also love the GIANT lawn at the center of the resort. More ignorance of reality, but great for a pretty picture or giant profit.

On New Miramar Hotel Design Unveiled

I was just at the San Francisco Ferry Building last week. I thought about how when it opened it, it was a one-of-a-kind and cutting edge way to buy food ingredients and giftwares. But now? Now it is dated and its trendiness is nothing but annoying and trite. The Alma De Pueblo is an idea behind its time, too.

On A Public Market Divided

Wow, decent article...until the end with HORRIBLE advice!! Do NOT put out rodent bait in the open under any circumstances. Pets and kids can be exposed and injured or have permanent liver damage, and it's very bad for the ecosystem with raptors (owls, etc.) ingesting it...then you have a net gain in rodents with predators poisoned. And cats should be indoors only. Cats DIE getting caught in the fan belt of a car when they go their to seek warmth. Sure, they "like the warmth," but that doesn't make the suggestions in the article sound.

On Critters Cause Car Challenges

Really, you had to include the comment about square nuts? That's crass, not appropriate to quote in a journalistic situation, and makes me wonder what the analogous quote would be if a woman was the focus of the story.

It's pretty petty and short-sighted to object to a photographer using photos on their website, or giving away prints here and there. After all, the photos themselves bring attention to stories the News Press covers. It's free publicity for the paper the more his photos are seen. Cant' they see we see through this? I think he should sue, and get a nice settlement. It smacks of retaliation.
I wonder how Wendy will feel on her deathbed some day. Will she finally feel like she got even enough and rest in peace THEN?

What a cruel person to transport horses crammed together in inadequate space, then take a turn too fast and cause their suffering and death.
He will probably only get a minor conviction. Shameful.

On Horses Die in Crash Near Highway 154

For fun, do a search online of "Danielle Steel Hedge" to read about the attack on her gargantuan 20' hedge in San Francisco. Gives our hedge wars some perspective!

Funny to protest privacy breach by publicizing your confidential matters.

PLEASE leave the East Beach Grill alone!! It's a nice, laid back, easily accessible, and affordable place for students, locals and tourists to get a nice meal at the beach. Not everything has to be a high end monstrosity.
