- Comic book lovers gather for 25-cent books in SF
By Sarah Ravani - Saturday Jul 8, 2017
Comic book lovers gather for 25-cent books in SF Scattered around Ed Minasian’s feet were copies of Bat Girl, Wonder Woman and Spiderman — just a few of the comics he had snatched from boxes haphazardly spread throughout the San Francisco library donation center in Potrero Hill. Minasian was one of the dozens of comic lovers who lined up outside the donation center at 10 a.m. for Saturday’s Friends of the San Francisco Public Library’s comic book sale, with proceeds going to the library. For the less earnest collectors, like 24-year-old June Park, the book sale was a chance to peruse tens of thousands of comic books for inspiration. “I think I’m picking them out on a design and arts point of view,” Park said, patting the 10 or so comics she had set aside for purchase. Nearby, one child had escaped the herd of excited people by sitting under the tables of books with a comic in hand. Brenda Salguero, the manager of volunteer services for the book sale, said it wasn’t long ago that serious literature readers turned up their noses at comic books. From Marvel’s Pakistani-American Muslim superhero, Dust, who debuted in 2014, to the upcoming movie release of Black Panther in February 2018, Salguero said she “really appreciates” Marvel’s commitment to bring diverse stories to the forefront. [...] he was going back for more, though he said his wife would groan at the sight of more comic books, which included a copy of Superman vs.

- Critics throw shade at Cuomo's plan to light NYC bridges
By DAVID KLEPPER, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 13, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Critics are throwing shade at Gov. Andrew Cuomo's pricey plan to install high-tech, color-changing lights on New York City's bridges, questioning whether the investment is the best use of public money.A government watchdog group this month called for a state probe into what it says are conflicting explanations for how much the lights cost and where that money will come from.De Blasio, who has frequently sparred with his fellow Democrat, urged Cuomo to reallocate the money for emergency repairs on the subway system, which has been plagued by mounting delays, derailments and other problems caused by decades of neglect.Despite initial reports that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority would foot the bill, the state now says the money will come from economic development funds and proceeds from the state's Power Authority, which often works on big energy efficiency projects.
