And the beat goes on (From NRO)...

Just Say No to Frisco - Reason to Vacation Elsewhere [Steve Schippert]

In the semi-autonomous North American region known currently as San Francisco, fierce independence is proudly on local display. Disenchanted with traditional federal governance, the indigenous coastal-Pacific population bravely and boldly rejects the oppressive liberty afforded by its security assurances.

The Bay Area’s ABC affiliate reports that San Francisco’s film commission Executive Director, Stefanie Coyote, denied permission for the [Marine Corps] drill team to film a recruiting commercial. She claimed that it would interrupt traffic.

Police Captain Greg Corralles, who commands the traffic bureau that works with crews filming commercials, reminds Ms. Coyote that, “the Film Commission often approves shoots for rush hour.” Corrales, a Marine veteran and father of a son serving his fourth tour in Iraq, adds of Ms. Coyote’s action, “It’s insulting, it’s demeaning.” Corrales also said that, "Ms. Coyote's politics blinded her to her duty as the director of the Film Commission and as a responsible citizen."


The U.S. Marine Silent Drill Platoon performed Monday morning in New York's Times Square. They filmed part of a recruitment commercial through the start of the morning rush hour — something they could not do in San Francisco on the anniversary of 9/11.
Marine Corps VietNam veteran Bruce Kesler has the rest. (They hate it when you call their autonomous region 'Frisco.' Frisco, Frisco, Frisco.)

I may be a midwestern boy originally, transplanted only by quirk of fate, but let me say it for the first time:

I Love New York.

God forbid, but if my mother's will dictated that her funeral and burial were to be conducted in San Francisco, I would teleconference.

Thus, family vacations to the semi-autonomous North American region of provincial San Francisco are clearly out of the question. Completely out. Boise sounds nice.


I guess three pink hang gliders doing aerobatics to the tunes of the Village People would be more fitting for the local population.
