Re: “An Identity Crisis at Mills College

I am parent of a child who graduated from Mills College, as well as chair of the MFA in Writing Program at California College of the Arts, where we have a small book arts program begun by the great Betsy Davids. Her retirement left us with a quarter-time instructor who teaches in other programs and many fewer students who take advantage of the one course we can offer every year. I completely support the great artist Kathy Walkup's remarkable years doing this work. Thank you for the article. Organize students, organize CW faculty to sustain this important program.

Re: “An Identity Crisis at Mills College

Keep BOOK ARTS! I am retired, a former artist in the book printing Industry.

I believe it is extremely important to offer this program not eliminate it.

It is important to learn the manual skills involved to create a book to fully appreciate the power of books in the past as well as the continuing potential of books as tools for learning; equal to electronic media!

Re: “Maria Guzman Capron Makes Clashing Cool

Hi, Do you do write-ups about the events at the Osceola Gallery in Emeryville and the Mythos Gallery in Berkeley?
Recently, the Mythos Gallery has produced art shows of significant quality, from historical themes to the upcoming contemporary abstract work. Osceola Gallery has recently held an open house and I saw works there from mid-20th century that are that are a collector's dream. Both worthwhile art news, Janet Norris

Re: “Oakland's Most Defiant Book Vendor

This little bookshop was for me a major draw to living in the Temescal area. It's terrible that there is no longer room for independent printmaking and bookselling in the neighborhood.

Re: “Oakland's Most Defiant Book Vendor

Yess Oakland needs more Bookstores, but what about the density issues in Oakland. What about the resistance and keeping Temescal a Historical District. If no one resists, Nautilus will demolish all of the beautiful historic buildings like 4770A Telegraph. Bookstores Are nice, but what about the displacement of the locals due to Nautilus?

Re: “The Superheroes Behind the Scenes

This story of this beautiful project coming out of AHC Art Esteem as visualized by Amana Harris and her amazing parents, co-creators, and artists, who run AHC, breaks my heart. I am at a loss for words in expressing the grief I feel for the family and friends of Antonio Ramos. Oakland is my home town and I will continue to pray for it's healing and love for all!

Re: “Burning Man Cofounder John Law Spent Burning Man at Tribune Tower, Thinking about Bridges

Well played, John.

The current adventures notwithstanding (just try to catch up with John that isn't at a well-attended event—the man is always-active, consummately involved, and a member of at least 6 other Communities/organizations he didn't even site (probably because he's busy *doing* stuff )—the Past has inspired the Present and will the Future.

*IF* he has time to document the last and current decade when it's over (and the Statute of Limitations have expired) it will be fascinating to read how many spectacular mud pies he's had his fingers in. Better than fiction, because it's all true.

As for getting laid, someone once told me that the one thing you won't be saying when you die is "Regrets? Yeah, I wish I hadn't had so much sex!"

Janna Ashton, if that's your real name, I hope you are having a productive. joyous life, and this flash of vicious bitterness was not a straif from your true self. If so, maybe try getting laid...? Jus' sayin'

Re: “Stick a Fork in Alexandra Naughton

I liked how this article explained the current use of the Internet to reveal an author. I am impressed with the statement: You want to sleep with me because of my writing.
