Virgin San Francisco
The lighted gels at City Hall have been getting quite a workout lately, with an orange glow in anticipation of Barry Bonds breaking the home run record followed by a pinkish red glow for most of the last week.
It seems we are celebrating the arrival of Virgin America to SFO, that previously delightful and presently overbuilt and overdesigned, not-enough-runways-unless-they-pave-the-bay airport.
I'm also not sure why local taxpayers are being asked to pay for expensive signage everywhere in Civic Center to welcome Virgin America, but maybe that was in Richard Branson's contract with the city. At least they are nicely designed.
