Re: “Peña's Bakery Is The Bread of Life in Oakland's Fruitvale

Best pan dulce mexicano in the world. I've been enjoying their bread for many years. My kids are grown and still love their pan dulce. You can go to any other pan dulce store and see the same type pan, but it doesn't taste the same. Thank you Panaderia Pea for not giving up. I comend you on your excellent service! See you Sunday! thanks you for staying within our community. Saludos a toda la familia

Re: “Lake Merritt's Weird, Polluted — And Stinky — Legacy

Nice article. As long as the trash gates under the 10th St. bridge remain in operation, the lake will never be able to host all the aquatic life that resides in the Bay. On the other hand, we're probably going to have a pollution problem, if we remove the trash gates.

Re: “Oakland’s Most Iconic Tree Is Named After A Socialist Firebrand: Jack London (Of Course)

Claiming Jack London was a "champagne socialist" is to be completely ignorant of the man. Learn about him rather than spout and expose your ignorance.

Re: “Oakland’s Most Iconic Tree Is Named After A Socialist Firebrand: Jack London (Of Course)

Thank you Annalee Allen for finding the funding for a new plaque and arranging the redefication ceremony.

Jack continues to be an inspiration. Readers, do you know that Jack was a co-founder of the venable California Writers Club, calwriters.org?

The question is: was he a founder or an "honorary" founder? Records describe him as both.

Re: “Biff’s Coffee Shop In Oakland Was Googie Glory

Ever notice that you never see a beautiful picture of Biff's as it looked the last year it was open in any of these articles about how beautiful it was?

That's because they don't exist. The only beautiful picture of it in circulation is an architects drawing that doesn't look anything like the actual building looked.

It was only slightly more distinctive than a Pizza Hut, because it was basically just a round Pizza Hut.

Now, in it's place, there will be homes for hundreds of people. Given the recent restaurant boom, Oakland needs this much more than it needs a restored diner.

Jack London was a champagne socialist who lived on a ranch in Sonoma County. Hypocrite.

Re: “Downtown Berkeley

Hello guys. At the risk of sounding too promotional, I would like to recommend an alternate computer store. I have been consistently using the services from http://macrepairberkeley.com/">Mac Repair Berkeley and they have been really amazing! Compared to the service linked in the above list, the prices are quite lower and the services are top-notch.
