In keeping with the spirit of the Bureaucrash activism in Cancun, I see an opportunity for some creative outreach coming up on October 9.
That's when the Neighborhood Parks Council will be hosting their posh annual gala at South Park ($100 a head). It's a period-themed event: "Stroll among mystics, musicians, and costumed characters of the late 1800s, while you enjoy a bounty of delectable delights and libations — all under a sparkling canopy of lights."
I believe it was sometime around the turn of the century that the city municipalized the private competing streetcar lines servicing San Francisco, creating MUNI.
Imagine a "Save our Streetcars!" flier warning of the imminent threat by the responsible mayor or Supervisors of the time to dissolve these companies, and warning of the poor service and higher costs that could result from government control of public transit: "If we create MUNI, San Franciscans 100 years from now will be saddled with a dirty, costly, inefficient mode of transportation with a lousy safety record and terrible customer service!"
This project would involve a bit of research, some work in creating an authentic-looking 19th century flier, and, ideally, period costumes for participants. We wouldn't have to actually pay to go in, could just flier outside the event.
Anyone interested? 8)
