You know those Google shuttle buses, wi-fi and all, that pass by the Mission and Noe Valley to transport some 2,500 daily commuters to Silicon Valley?

Well, a report requested by mayoral candidate Bevan Dufty shows they may be good (for efficient transportation that is). SF Weekly has the story.

On the topic of transportation, SF Streetsblog reports on the bicycle injunction.

The San Francisco Superior Court partially lifted the bicycle injunction that has stopped any new bike project since June 2006.

Late Wednesday evening, Judge Peter Busch issued the order that would allow for the “most easily reversible” projects to go ahead before the larger court hearing scheduled for June 2010.

But don’t expect to see any new bike lanes in the Mission just yet. None of the approved new bike lanes are here, but several of them are in nearby Potrero hill.

What you can expect to see are “sharrows” and bike racks!

Mission Loc@l reporter Viola gives us the first installment of a series about shopping (and looking) at Mission District establishments.

Lily Mihalik reports about a program that helps pregnant homeless women.

Mission Burger gets a shoutout from San Francisco Magazine.

So get this: Lou Dobbs is trying to change his anti-Latino image now that he is considering running as a third-party candidate for senate and possibly the presidency.

He told Telemundo, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, that he is now supporting a plan to legalize undocumented workers– something he has called unfair “amnesty” in the past.

I am sure some community activist will have something to say about it. Mission Loc@l reported about the campaign to get Dobbs out of CNN, and a subsequent party after he left.

Speaking of immigration, a debate about immigrant children has erupted in Israel. The Israeli government is planning on deporting undocumented workers and their children, mostly from South America.

One of the reasons is because they are “diluting the Jewish character of the country,” according to a report from Latino USA. But unlike the U.S., children of undocumented parents born in Israel are not Israeli citizens.

They granted a partial amnesty in 2005, but some 1,200 children born in Israel with no ties to South America will be deported because they were too young when the amnesty was in place.

Lastly, a play in New York may give audience members some understanding about the immigration battlefield.
