- A small white goat was scene running loose on Folsom Street in SoMa this afternoon. The video below was taken by a person stuck in traffic trying to get on the Bay Bridge at a time when several lanes were shut down due to an individual having a mental health episode — but where did this (possibly juvenile) goat come from!?
Currently stuck in traffic and trying to get on the Bay Bridge. But in other news, I saw this goat running down Folsom Street. I hope he finds his way home 🥺 pic.twitter.com/6ZBfDfIWho— Kayla E. Galloway (@kaylaegalloway) March 8, 2023
- The SF Unified School District remains, administratively, a mess, and they just admitted that they failed to file three quarterly wage reports last year, which will impact thousands of teachers and staff.

- A vintage Muni train car, a Boeing model from the 1970s that was decommissioned and turned into an office in Richmond, has found a buyer after its current owners were looking to sell — and it will be going up to Geyserville where it may be rentable for Airbnb-type overnight stays. [Chronicle]
