Coffee-break reading: from SF Appeal we have a look at the revised term sheet for the America's Cup agreement. Hammered out between the Mayor's office and Team Ellison during the Christmas holiday, up to now details have been vague. Turns out there are no details- the agreement was said to be within the parameters of the agreement put out last fall but the result reads more like an agenda of items that remain to be negotiated. And in a very short time, folks, because this race is like tomorrow in yacht-years. Supervisor Mirkarimi- a friend of the race, not a foe- has called for hearings into what it all means. Stay tuned. Looks like we have many months of land use (pier use?) follies ahead.
