Updated with Editors Note: Cobra Malt Liquor Through a Straw
A lot of you objected to the publication of a photo that rider Matthew took on the 19-Polk, of someone who he thought was a dead-ringer for Whitney Houston. Your comments are really valuable to us at Muni Diaries as we constantly walk the fine line between democratic forum and editorial integrity. We don’t often turn your posts away because we want to create a place where you can tell your stories, but we definitely don’t want to do this at someone’s expense. We’ve taken the picture down but left the text of the story here in the post. Agree or disagree with our decision? We want to know. Please tell us in the comments section. – Jeff and Eugenia
Muni rider Matthew writes to tell of a possible celebrity-sighting on a San Francisco bus.
Tell me this wasn’t Whitney Houston! She was a “BOBBY!!” shriek away from a dead ringer.
Seriously, her makeup looked professionally applied, if a little too glittery for 3 p.m. If she wasn’t so wasted and her top wasn’t so stained with spilled liquids, I really would have thought it was the Diva Herself. God I hope those stains were just her drinks…
“Whitney” fell asleep long enough for me to snap her photo. She woke up soon after to root around in one of her bags for another Cobra Malt Liquor (which she drank through a straw, because as you can see, she is a LADY).
I can snap photos and poke fun because lord knows I’ve been that drunk lady on the bus a time or thousand.
Matthew has just become the first Muni-razzi. Seen any celebs or dead-ringers on Muni? firstname.lastname@example.org
