Re: “Corporate Beer Overlords AB InBev To Open Golden Road 'Craft' Beer Garden in North Oakland

I agree that this seems a great development for North Oakland. I don't follow the editorial sub-text that runs through this report that somehow AB InBev's involvement is a bad thing - unless it's a personal bias harbored by the author?

ICE is racist just like Trump and the Republican Party.

Re: “Lady Esther’s Rises Once Again, Now in Downtown Oakland

I am pretty sure Lady Esther's opened on 7th Street before 1968. I remember it as a child. Glad to see it back

Re: “Corporate Beer Overlords AB InBev To Open Golden Road 'Craft' Beer Garden in North Oakland

I'm excited for the development this can bring to the neighborhood! Of course we hope for more small local shops, but having an anchor like that as an attraction is a great start!

Hopefully Richmond's share of funds go to my city.

Re: “UC Berkeley Students Inspire Legislation That Would Make California Colleges Provide Abortion Pill On Campus

This is a common sense approach. Like most good ideas, it's so obvious in retrospect.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

What about only the tip, just for a second, just to see what it feels like?

Kidding aside, isn't this a more healthy way to explore a relationship?

If Uber wants to follow the Warriors over to SF, let them try and ride the coattails of success.

They might find Oakland offers a place to live and work that's better suited to keeping it real. I'm just saying. San Francisco can get a bit caught up, it's in the history books if you look.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

the gig economy is independent contracting that really doesn't benefit you. All the expenses fall on the driver, taxes, upkeep, etc. After putting 100,000 miles on a 2014 Avalon a part time driver for Uber will soon need a new car while still paying for the old one.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

How is the gig economy rubbish ? As a second job (not Uber or Lyft ride sharing), the "gig economy" EASILY, without much of a sweat puts an extra $400-$500 a week in my pocket. I know what I got into and am ABSOLUTELY satisfied with the arrangement.

Good riddance to bad, unethical, gig economy rubbish.

Re: “Alameda Sheriff's Letter Supporting Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions Draws Criticism From Immigration and Civil Rights Advocates

Good for Ahern, he is following the law...I know that is odd for the "progressives" but for law abiding people it is refreshing. Next thing the "progressives" will want to empty the jail as most of them are political prisoners. Thank you for protecting us from criminals.

Re: “Alameda Sheriff's Letter Supporting Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions Draws Criticism From Immigration and Civil Rights Advocates

Great article, but I would love more information about how someone who clearly doesn't represent the interests of the majority of alameda county became Sheriff and if there is any effort to replace him with a progressive sheriff that better represents the values of our community.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

I wonder what Uber saw in Oakland in the first place? What changed their minds? Did the city put up its usual anti anything road blocks and discouraged them? Is their business model stalling?l wonder.
