Re: “Ethiopian Café Anfilo in Oakland, Where The Food Is As Strong And Bold As The Coffee

Ethiopian Food is good. Them Ethiopians got North Oakland on lock. They got lots of businesses on Telehraph. Traditional Soul Food ain't really popping like that no more. You got a few left in Oakland but there fazing out, even Chinese restaurants are fazing out. People, especially in the Bay Area are all about new things and exploring new plateaus. That's Ethiopian restaurants and other African restaurants thrive. The bay area is a great place, I grew up there but its too expensive. But anyway, Ethiopian restaurants are on the rise all over

Re: “Sen. Nancy Skinner Asks Contra Costa Supervisors to Cancel $95 Million Jail Expansion

We need more money for early childhood education and later for rehabilitation and diversion into programs like Kamala Harris's Clean Slate Program which saved San Francisco about $250,000 per first time offender. This program made them plead guilty first and then gave them a 5-year intervention with H.S. diploma mandatory, job training, a job, affordable housing, Psych services, parenting classes and so on and if they stayed clean for 5 years and didn't reoffend -- aged out of crime -- then their slate was wiped clean. We need more creative programs to grab these first time, young, non-violent offenders and help them get an American dream life, with housing and families and jobs and at least H.S.education with job training. That's the Compassionate Solution and it saves money.

Re: “City Emails: Many Dublin Residents Think Undocumented Immigrants Are 'Felons' Who Will Turn Their Town Into a 'Cesspool'

Dublin City Council could have chosen another word like SAFE HAVEN to "make undocumented members of the community feel comfortable contacting the police, sending their kids to school, or seeking care at a hospital"

Dublin, do you really want the children of your housekeeper and lawn man and guy doing your remodel to live in fear that Dublin is trying to deport their parents and they will be gone when the kids come home from school? Do you really want the police rounding up the Berkeley PhD graduate student whose parents brought her here at 6 months of age to be deported? There is great hypocrisy surrounding this issue.

Many of these immigrants having been living here for decades. They didn't just run across the border. We let them do our menial labor for wages no one else would accept, but we want them also to live in fear? USA is their home. We need reasonable paths to citizenship for our neighbors and friends in the immigrant community, not deportation from the only lives they know.

Flashbang grenades? Get a grip. They were throwing firecrackers. You think they couldn't get a pepsi can in but they could get grenades past the cops?

I think BPD did good. Free speech lives, those who got hurt in the melee came for the melee and less likelyhood that the city will face lawsuits. I believe the people of Berkeley approve.

Thank you so much Senator Nancy Skinner. We need money for social services not jail expansion.

Until the non-violent offender breaks into your house and steals your belongings, then you want them locked up.

Re: “City Emails: Many Dublin Residents Think Undocumented Immigrants Are 'Felons' Who Will Turn Their Town Into a 'Cesspool'

Sounds like the residents of Dublin have drank in the extremist, alt right, Fox New, Brietbart, white panic propaganda from the Trump Regime. I fear more from the white extremists, zealots, Trumpsters and gun nut Oathkeepers than from any illegal immigrant. Funny how they don't seem concerned about the murders and violence these racists are committing!
Thanks for giving me yet another reason to laugh at the ugly suburban sprawl joke that is Dublin!

Re: “Nyum Bai Wants to Expand Your Vocabulary of Asian Noodle Soups

I was all excited about this place, but the use of Maggi seasoning means that there is MSG in the food which strikes it off my list. I get migraines from MSG and it also typically means that the food is not good quality enough to stand on it's own without flavor enhancers. Oh well....

Oh no....tomatoes cost more. Yes, let's spend billions of dollars for people who lie, cheat, and steal to be here.

There are millions of people who spent tons of money and time to be here the right way.
