Re: “Advocates Criticize Alameda Sheriff’s Cooperation with Immigration Enforcement

A lot of folks complain that undocumented workers have broken the law. Have you ever considered that slaves in the pre-Civil War South broke the law when they set foot off the plantation? Or that the Surpreme Court ruled that no black person was a citizen, North or South, and could never BE one? The law was immoral then, and it is immoral now. If we benefit from the sweat of another human being's brow, then we must repay him or her. People who pick our crops and hoe our fields and tend our children are being hunted down on our streets and cities and farms. This must stop. Undocumented workers cannot change the laws but We the PEOPLE can, and it is our responsibility as decent people to do so.

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

We can continue to build nice tall, generic buildings if that's what people really want, but a restored Biff's would have been a hit with the new Millenials as architect Roy notes. We've seen a resurgience in bowling at the Plank, and restored Kwik Way/.Merritt, which someone will probably try to raze again soon. That leaves the classic Alley on Grand which has become a hit with Millenials despite it's run down state. And that's exactly what pepole want; not another expensive skyscraper. Oakland has had a rebirth of modern ,, trendy restaurants , which is great , but lets not let the town loses its old soul. Thank god for the Paraount and Fox theaters https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=7299998174811532615#editor/target=post;postID=4427836600293029248;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=0;src=link

Re: “ACLU of Northern California Asks Immigration Courts to Immediately Provide Media Access on Behalf of Express

Jim Mzt, in this case the public is allowed. Reporters are specifically targeted for removal, even though they "obey the policies or laws that the public must obey." So what justifies removing the reporters?

These protestors should follow the immigration law. If they are not legal residents they have to leave that is the law. The Sheriff Department is doing it's job correctly. UI applaud them for that.

Re: “ACLU of Northern California Asks Immigration Courts to Immediately Provide Media Access on Behalf of Express

We need to make some changes to the so called rights of the press. They should have to obey the policies or laws that the public must obey. They don't get a free pass to anything only to what that are allowed.

Re: “Maggie Smith Triumphs Again in 'The Lady in the Van'

I've been a bit dissatisfied with many films of late, but it looks like Kelly and I share similar tastes, so I'll check this one out.

Re: “Casey Affleck A Misfit Again in Manchester By The Sea

I wish I'd read this review before I tried to sit through the film. It was the second-worst film I'd ever seen, behind the abysmal Riding in Cars with Boys. Dull, lifeless, painful, dreary doesn't seem to explain it well enough.
I imagine it's actually quite difficult to make a movie both simultaneously boring AND confusing, but Manchester by the Sea did it. That alone deserves some kind of award. I got through about 80% of it before switching it off.
Like I said, I wish I'd seen this review first. I want my 90 minutes back.
