Except you are lying or have a bad memory as an expired meter fine is currently $65 (actually $55 if you went to the Noe Valley Whole Foods). And you are an ass for parking that far off the curb. And Pay the fucking meter, they take credit cards and you can text to them.

You really think that is expensive? How much do you drive? How much do you pay a year on your car, include everything, gas, insurance, registration, parking tickets, maintenance. If you live in SF you realize that zip cars have parking, so you should include the hassle of finding parking. Lastly, you don't just have a car, you have the car you need for what you need it for. Do you need to go to the lumber yard, or buy a sofa, well then you have a truck or a van, do you want to pick up a pretty lady, well you can get a mini convertible. Unless you are driving more than 15k miles a year, it's really hard to beat $8 an hour of usage (including sitting in a parking lot) for owning a car. (and I do own a car)

What FA are you speaking of? There isn't one here. Also in the summary, or the "Ask Slashdot" question, it points out that the child is currently, after being homeschooled, a below average reader. That nugget of information makes it sound like the homeschoolers are not competent teachers, which asks the question "Why are they homeschooling"?

Why are people who are asking this question in a brusk manner being moderated "troll"?

When Full House being filmed, Alamo square (upon which lie the painted ladies the fictional location) was nearly a war zone. Just 13 years ago the San Francisco Chronicle had a front page story about 6 murders in a year only a block away due to the drug trade. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/1999/08/14/MN46914.DTL

Logic is a pretty flower that smells bad.
