Re: “Poetry Express Readings

Featured readers are often well awarded and published poets, yet the sessions in a private room in the restaurant are receptive and this is a good place for Open Mic where even a 1st-time reader can feel comfortable among the more established voices.

Re: “Tambo Peruvian Restaurant

the restaurant is located close to the federal buildings if you are driving by is hard to see it. The food is really good and different good presentation and ceviches is a must. If you are looking for Peruvian food now don't have to go San Francisco Tambo is the wat to go.

Re: “Oakland City Council Questions Need for Court-Appointed Police Monitor, Delays Renewing Contracts

We've had oversite for many years. I not sure what it's supposed to accomplish. I remember the "riders" they were fired along time ago but what deficiencies in the department is the continuing oversight trying to correct?

Re: “Court Orders Landlord to Fix 'Inhumane Conditions' in Lead-Contaminated, Fire-Damaged Fruitvale Building

That's a nice looking building. I wonder why the owner doesn't fix it up. Rent control? It can be very difficult to repair apartments while long term tenants live in an apartment. You can't do lead remediation while perplexed are living there. I guess the owner will be forced to evict?

Re: “California Traffic Tickets Amnesty Program Leaves Many Behind

Santa Clara County is one of the most corrupt Counties I have ever encountered. I am eligible for this amnesty program and they denied me. I sent in 4 applications and they denied me for different reasons each time, on one app they claim there was no citation under my name. It took them 8 months to deny me, to deliberately run down the clock. They said 14601.1 is not eligible because it was a reckless driving. Really? hmmm cause when I look it up that is a driving while suspended which is what this program is for.
I am so fed up with these people and the courts. I even have documents where SCC actually changed the dates to appear as tho I missed the cut off. Now where do you go with this proof. Not the DOJ or the Grand Jury. They are not interested in that.

Re: “Critics Say Oakland's Entertainment Permit Process Too Arduous, Contributes to Unsafe Spaces Like Ghost Ship

Ummm... Possibly a silly question, but how is it that other have managed to navigate this "too arduous" process? And how is fair to those who have jumped through those hoops that other want to bypass them?

The primary effect of the vaguely requested changes are that more events are held. What are the things the process are intended to block?

I arrived at Madison Park at 10 am and it was jammed packed.

Re: “In Oakland, Massive Crowd Of 100,000 Turns Out For Anti-Trump Women's March

Just a quick correction - attendees had gathered well before 10am at 9th and Madison. I arrived with my group at 10am and there were already several thousand people there.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

AND the Chronicle's coverage of the Women's March in the Bay Area is dismal. Despite over >200k having marched locally, the cover photo is from Washington DC. And the piece about the SF march had minimal real information - e.g. turnout numbers.

Re: “In Oakland, Massive Crowd Of 100,000 Turns Out For Anti-Trump Women's March

I particularly like the sign with the great drawing of Trump that said, "I'm not a real President, But I play one on TV." What great Oakland artist created that? I want one.

Re: “In Oakland, Massive Crowd Of 100,000 Turns Out For Anti-Trump Women's March

OPD told CBS 5 later on that it was closer to 85K. It felt that big today, moving like molasses.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

In other news, the Chronicle has banned its entire newsroom staff from going to restaurants, so that no one will think the paper's food critic is biased.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

John Q: Please note that reporters did not feed Hillary debate questions (current DNC head Donna Brazile advised Hillary that a debate in Flint, Michigan, would include a question about Flint's water crisis -- Whoa! If true), but Sean Hannity did vouch for Donald Trump's otherwise invisilble opposition to the Iraq invasion. Meanwhile, Hillary's use of a wrong email server got more coverage than all of Donald Trump's scandals, conflicts of interest, defrauding of Trump U. students, and sexual assault combined.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

How many of those covered by the Chronicle's ban ever, under any circumstances, have even the tiniest bit to do with covering national politics? Three, maybe? I'm not real concerned about Mick LaSalle's politics.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

Perhaps it would be helpful for people to read the position of the Ethics Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists.

I would think they do not come up with their best thinking regarding ethical issues by reacting to the heat of the moment (or our disgusting new leader) but that they create guidance on ethical issues based on careful and thorough information, thinking and discussion.

I would think that posters here may benefit from doing some homework before forming their own opinions.

See here: http://www.spj.org/ethics-papers-politics.…

Their opening:

"The SPJ Ethics Committee gets a significant number of questions about whether journalists should engage in political activity. The simplest answer is No. Dont do it. Dont get involved. Dont contribute money, dont work in a campaign, dont lobby, and especially, dont run for office yourself."

They go into very good detail here on what is OK and what is not OK. A news reporter (with extremely significant requirements of objectivity) have much more firm boundaries than a political commentator, as an example.
