CA residents: sign the petition to protect housing affordability.
The Affordable Housing Bonus Program (AHBP) conversation may be quiet in San Francisco at the moment, but the state’s density bonus law is front and center in Sacramento! SFHAC has been a strong supporter of the local AHBP, a proposed local tool that would give concessions and benefits, or bonuses, to housing developments that include a...

The NYT editorial section has been waging a full court press against Bernie Sanders. (To be fair, I can't blame the pundits for supporting Hillary, she's a supremely qualified, entrenched establishment candidate.)

I like this response to one such editorial from the comments section:

What frustrates me as a millennial is that I was brought up being told that Franklin D. Roosevelt was one of the greatest presidents in history because he was so liberal, and not just for his time. His economic bill of rights (which sadly never saw the light of day) guaranteed, among other things, that every citizen in the country has the right to a paying job. Many living politicians in the Democratic establishment sing the praises of President Roosevelt, calling him one of the greatest presidents to ever live, comparing him to Lincoln, and claiming that the New Deal saved the country from economic ruin. He was so popular that the Constitution was amended so that no future president could be elected as many times as he was.

Now, seventy years after President Roosevelt died, a candidate comes along with an awfully similar message, and the Democratic establishment completely turns their backs him.

And don't lecture me about how his agenda will never get passed. The New Deal didn't exactly sail through Congress, and a lot of what did got struck down by the Supreme Court. FDR was called a tyrant and a communist, among other things. Still, his courage, his leadership, and the boldness of his vision survive, despite the political realities of his time--it lives on in Bernie Sanders.

Despite doing well with a number of voter groups, so far Sanders has not brought about nearly enough of the political upheaval he is counting on.

We urgently need more housing options of diverse sizes and price ranges. Any environmentalist or humanitarian should realize how irresponsible it is to have a massive imbalance between housing and jobs in an area, which guarantees that people have longer commutes, which means more traffic, more loss of life in accidents, more carbon dioxide emissions, and more wasted hours of life. The jobs housing balance hits the poor and working class hardest.

This is what I've been saying. In SF or SJ, we're not having the argument about whether global warming is a hoax perpetrated by money-grubbing climatologists (?!) and the Chinese (?!), thankfully. Yet people won't put their zoning laws where their mouth is.
We're pro-environment but anti-density, pro-immigration but anti-migration, and pro-equity but anti-housing. Our ideology is completely detached from our policy outcomes, and its killing our cities.

If you found a black bike bag in Mountain View tonight with "Jeremy Hoffman" IDs in it, that's mine. :-(

Edit: I wrote "back" instead of "bag"! Just lost the bag.

Hearthstone announced the biggest change in the game's two-year history: they will introduce a Standard format, where cards will rotate out after two years. This was a very necessary step, taken by all collectible card games, that keeps the game fresh and approachable for new players. The original card set (the "Basic" and "Classic" cards) will stay in Standard perpetually. Since those cards will always be around, they need to tweak some of the most problematic cards so they don't limit variety of gameplay year after year.

I wrote an article on Reddit listing the cards that I think should be tweaked.
