Re: “Best Broadway-Star-Turned Folk Diva

Yes, indeed, she kills. She's our fabulous Choir Director at Plymouth United Church of Christ, also known as "the Jazz and Justice Church," and she kills -- every Sunday. That's us at Plymouth UCC -- "slain in the Spirit" as the old saints used to put it!

Re: “Bar with the Most Diverse Clientele

A person from Castro Valley looks like a cross between Paris Hilton and Jimmy Hoffa and sometimes sporting a cute little beauty mark on the left cheek of its buttocks. The beauty mark always gives them away. Sure-fire sign.

Re: “Best Trainspotting

I love Brennan's. When I worked nearby it was my lunch spot at least one day a week. Great sandwiches made to order.

Re: “Best Trainspotting

Great choice - this is a terrific spot for lunch or dinner but the best time is in the late afternoon when the sun is going down. Have a few cold beers and a sandwich and see what you think...

Re: “Best Dispensary Lounge

Despite the lead in, Harborside does not have a better selection; BPG's selection is actually quite comparable. It is much more comfortable now with the wooden partitions, the mirrored windows that let in the natural light (and let you look out without people on the street being able to see in) and newly painted lounge area, but BPG does not have a wood floor (it's ceramic tile). Seems like the author of the article hasn't been in the place in while. Maybe they should swing through it again sometime and experience how magical the place has become.

Re: “Best Cannabis Physician

Dr. Lucido is the most compassionate doc that Ive ever been to. There are alot of $49 and $59 dollar cannibas doctors, but none of them come even close to the expertise of Dr. Frank Lucido. He is interested in your health and well being. He is so informational about the pros and cons of cannibas. Thanks Dr.Lucido.

Re: “Most Dedicated Campaign Volunteer

I had an opportunity, largely due to Jeans husband, Floyd to become involved in this campaign, and, I can tell you, that both Floyd and James Vann helped to make this one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Not only was I able to work with many great people, people who genuinely care about all of Oakland, but, because of the nature of Jeans campaign, I was able to help give voice to my community, something that has been missing historically from city hall, or those campaigning to inhabit it. I am happy to point out that my community continues to have a voice "downtown, because of Jean, and the hard work of people like Floyd Huen and James Vann. Hats off to both of these gentlemen for reminding us that, in the words of Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Re: “Best YouTube Celebrity-Turned-Theater Actor

It's a shame that the rumors about Rasputin, fabricated by the aristocracy, continue to be viewed as history. For a view of the real man, read "Rasputin and The Jews: A Reversal of History" (on Amazon). This book is a well-documented account of Rasputin as a healer, equal rights activist and man of God, and why he was so vilified by the aristocracy that their vicious rumors became accepted as history. For nearly a century, Grigory Rasputin, spiritual advisor to Russia's last Tsar and Tsarina, has been unjustly maligned simply because history is written by the politically powerful and not by the common man. A wealth of evidence shows that Rasputin was discredited by a fanatically anti-Semitic Russian society, for advocating equal rights for the severely oppressed Jewish population, as well as for promoting peace in a pro-war era. Testimony by his friends and enemies, from all social strata, provides a picture of a spiritual man who hated bigotry, inequity and violence. The author is the great-great niece of Aron Simanovitch, Rasputin's Jewish secretary.

Re: “Most Dedicated Campaign Volunteer

Stillhere, rumor has it when City Attorney Russo left office he said privately to a few colleagues "The City is f**cked" You can't fix it by footing the bill to the next generation. How many murders are we at now? The Crime Lords of this City who also run the prisons and manipulate Oakland's children to do their dirty work, know that OPD is understaffed. Not too long ago 7 people in East Oakland were wounded within the same time frame. One person was killed. The bloody summer is not even over yet. Of course I care, we saw the conditions and lack of jobs this City has to offer them. China can't be bribed with wines or Oaklandish t-shirts. Were a city of 499,000, an average city in China is 4 million. Why get Oakland wine when now they can afford Napa Valley or French brands? The PRC already owns a slice of Oakland because they own the US debt. What a waste of taxpayer's money if you ask me. A parcel tax is going to fix all our problems?
