Re: “Mid-Week Menu: A Coffee Box, a Sicilian Spinoff, and ‘Broffee’

Matt, I've never found Luke wanting as a food critic, and I suspect that he knows the meaning and significance of "craft coffee drinks."

Here's a hint -- in this case, regarding "artisanal bottled water":

Re: “Cops That Worked at Richmond Schools Now Under Investigation for Alleged Sexual Misconduct with Former Student

Obvious Tong was working during visit at the Guap estate. Was Hill on-duty during visiting? Obviously also Guap received Hill's message (904 in OPD 9 codes) and stopped texting Hill concerning coming over for sex. But why after being so spy like did Hill thank her? I guess he is a polite child molester! Is Tong still working everyday with school age children and "mentoring" the Explorer Post??

So many unanswered questions!! More to come I hope...

Re: “Landlord Being Sued for Allegedly Pushing Out SRO Tenants

This is a very bad landlord. He took out all our belongings without notice. We are using law to protect ourselves. He has a Chinese Wife that's why he believes that he understands our Chinese don't know how to use the law to help ourselves. But don't forget that this is in the USA not in China. We will win the case and we will see.

East bay Express should get an award for breaking this story; you guys are putting the Chronicle and Mercury news to shame.

Re: “Oakland Eases Rules on Secondary Units to Add New Rental Housing

Why is the City of Oakland ordering a friend to demolish their illegal in law bedroom unit?
It is built in their townhouse condo basement and is constructed to code.
It's been there for 25 years and was reported by a neighbor. This 16 x16 room has been home to numerous students and teachers over the years.
I'm stunned to learn there is no other option than to demolish the living space.
Can anyone explain the logic?😠

Re: “California Set for Historic Vote on Cannabis Legalization

"That’s not true."

Great to see a newspaper actively refereeing a debate and educating its readership instead of just transcribing quotes. I'm new to the area and extremely very by the EBE.

Re: “New Oakland-Made Saurkraut Takes Shots at Uber, Mayor

The photograph on the label was stolen, without credit or compensation, from freelance photographer Chris Duffey, a longtime contributor to Oakland Magazine and the East Bay Express. A representative of Phat Beets declined to cease using the photo when informed that it was stolen. So much for the ethics and good works of Phat Beets Produce, I guess.

Re: “Snoop Dogg, Too $hort Endorse California Marijuana Legalization in New Video

Patrick, CCHI is a fool's practice and will never happen. It was first introduced in 1990 and has failed to make the ballot in every election cycle since then, it's time to accept that it isn't gonna happen and move on. AUMA still allows you to grow your own while also allowing for unlimited possession limits at home and onsite consumption lounges, that is legal to me and everyone else I know. Prop 215 has done good things, but the unregulated status quo has caused problems and DEA raids, who said that they would return if a tightly regulated structure for cannabis isn't put into place in California. MMRSA and AUMA are the results of that, the nationwide movement towards ending prohibition cannot afford a loss in California this November, that is exactly what the prohibitionists want and all you're doing is siding with them and helping them get what they want.

Re: “California Set for Historic Vote on Cannabis Legalization

Will the the measure prohibit employers (public and private) from disqualifying prospective applicants from employment? And will it also prohibit employers (public and private) from testing for marijuana usage?

Re: “Landlord Being Sued for Allegedly Pushing Out SRO Tenants

Ahasuerus Christian, what makes you so certain I'm lying? Just curious. We posted notices in English AND Chinese that we would be remodeling common areas, and when our general contractor suggested all kitchens had to be done at the same time, we refused, instead insisting that they completely remodel one kitchen, and only start on the 2nd kitchen once the first one had been completed and put back in service. I get it, "bad landlord" articles are great click-bait, and a great way to further one's career in some cases. Consider that there are honest business people, unless and until there is actually evidence against them. In this case, there is no evidence because we have no desire to ever constructively evict anyone, and 100% respect Just Cause and all other laws. Does anyone else find it odd that we took a Death-trap building with exactly zero smoke detectors and zero carbon monoxide detectors and with raw sewage leaking into the basement (literally) and cured all those items, plus the leaky roof, plus are painting it, and I've said that to every reporter that has contacted me, but none have printed it? I continue to respond to all questions and inquiries and have offered to meet with the city or anyone else with a stake in the situation. They haven't--maybe because they're mistaken and embarrassed, maybe they're too busy writing their next piece of inaccurate click-bait. Oh well. We'll just keep improving Oakland, respecting tenants, and taking punishment while doing it. No love lost Oakland.

Can't someone look for the mailer ID from the mailing barcode to determine who the sender is? who is MID 901486?
