What We Were Reading While We Should Have Been Working

Your Monday afternoon lunch break link bait.

Day Four of BART Strike: No end in sight, as a weekend accident takes the situation from aggravating to tragic. [H/t: SFGate]

A Former BART Operator on Why to Support the Strike: "Those pesky work rules that management keeps shooting its mouth off about [...] are designed for safety and [so] the operator can function as a somewhat normal human being during her shift." [H/t: Drake Talk Oakland]

Five People Shot During Oakland Weekend Crime Spike: Stay safe out there. [H/t: SFist]

One-Party State Flags Flying over SF City Hall: Well, when the Google Flag gets raised sometime in 2016, you can't say you weren't warned. [H/t: SF Citizen]

Inside Re-Opened Tosca's First Week: Our favorite part of the interview with head dude Ken Friedman is when he says it "seems tacky" to name drop the celebrities who have been there, only three paragraphs after he bragged he "was pretty surprised opening night to be sitting with Mayor Ed Lee, former Mayor Willie Brown, and Joe Montana." We're not surprised about Ed, but better not tell Joe or (especially) Willie that they don't count as a celebs. [Eater SF

Tips for Managing Those Pampered, Egalitarian Millenials: Our advice? Make them write up the link bait every day. That'll keep them quiet enough for the adults to do the real work. [H/t: SF Business Times]
