San Francisco wants to install a broadband antenna that would help get our city up to speed with fast handheld internet access -- something places like Modesto and Stockton already have (Ed. note: sigh). Everything was moving along smoothly until the NIMBYs in Bernal Heights voiced their concern to the Board of Supervisors that in the event of an earthquake the antenna will "accidentally zap residents with concentrated radio waves." We did not just make that up. Today the Board of Supes will consider an appeal of the Planning Commission's decision to "not require an environmental review for the installation of five small dish antennae on the radio tower at Bernal Hill."
