San Francisco to crack down on recycling poachers

Judge orders scavengers to stop raiding trash

As in: people who steal the recyclable material from your trash.

Small groups converge on a neighborhood on the night before regular weekly trash and recycling pickups. Runners go from bin to bin, gathering glass bottles, plastic and aluminum, which are thrown into a pickup truck - often rickety and modified with tall, wooden boards to carry bigger loads.

When the truck is filled, the drivers take the cargo to a recycling center or scrap yard.

Depending on the prices offered for the material, the crews can net hundreds to thousands of dollars on each load.

The garbage company says those figures add up quickly - totaling $2 million to $5 million a year. Ratepayers ultimately pick up the tab through higher trash bills, said Robert Reed, spokesman for Sunset Scavenger.

Dear Giant Squid, It is a disagreement in our group as to whether cheesecake is in fact a "cake" or a "pie." Please, Giant Squid, settle this argument for us. signed, The Prescriptive Bakers Union ---- Dearest Cheesecake-Enthusiasts, It is fortunate that you bring thisquestion to one such as me, for I happened to own and operate, for a brief period, a popular little alcohol dispensary with cabaret functionality on No Name Key, in the string of islands reaching down from Florida's tip, and yearning to tickle Mexico in her moist and gulfish crevices.
Fiction: Be A Man by Eric Bennett
Begin the conversation by baring your throat, a sign of submission. Lower your eyes. Hide your contempt. Think bunny thoughts, mouse thoughts, and small, furry critter thoughts so he doesn't feel threatened. Let him know he can devour you in one bloodless gulp. This is the way to keep your job.
Poetry: Egg by Anthony Liccione
First to arrive to the scene all the kings horsemen and all the kings men, just looked upon the yolk shattered eggshell pieces and the slime of snot running down the wall and into a soul puddle—only to turn broken hearted knowing that their swords and knights were unable to bring unity and peace.
Rant: History of the Necronomicon by H.P. Lovecraft
Composed by Abdul Alhazred, a mad poet of Sanaá, in Yemen, who is said to have flourished during the period of the Ommiade caliphs, circa 700 A.D. ... Of his madness many things are told. He claimed to have seen a fabulous Irem, or "City of Pillars," and to have found beneath the ruins of a certain nameless desert town the shocking annals and secrets of a race older than mankind. He was only an indifferent Moslem, worshipping unknown entities whom he called Yog-Sothoth and Cthulhu.

Dateline Sacramento, 2023: Pleblicite decrees Caucasian civil rights "a bother"

It could happen, if you combine these magical elements: No rights are inalienable! Ken Starr said so
In yesterday's CA Supreme court case, advocating to uphold Prop8, Kenneth Starr argued that there are no inalienable rights for Californians. Under his argument, he admitted that free speech, racial discrimination, (presumably even voting rights themselves!) under the California constitution are subject to a simple majority vote, without any legislative process at all.
Justices seem to be leaning in favor of Prop. 8
"Here we are dealing with the power of the people, the inalienable right, to amend the Constitution," [Justice Joyce] Kennard said.
White America a minority-to-be
Across the airwaves yesterday was a report that by 2023, minorities in the US - non-whites, but meaning mostly Hispanics - will make up the majority of all children in the country. That means white children born in the US today will be in the minority of all children in the US before they even finish high school.
