Re: “Oakland’s Most Iconic Tree Is Named After A Socialist Firebrand: Jack London (Of Course)

Thank you Annalee Allen for finding the funding for a new plaque and arranging the redefication ceremony.

Jack continues to be an inspiration. Readers, do you know that Jack was a co-founder of the venable California Writers Club, calwriters.org?

The question is: was he a founder or an "honorary" founder? Records describe him as both.

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

Ever notice that you never see a beautiful picture of Biff's as it looked the last year it was open in any of these articles about how beautiful it was?

That's because they don't exist. The only beautiful picture of it in circulation is an architects drawing that doesn't look anything like the actual building looked.

It was only slightly more distinctive than a Pizza Hut, because it was basically just a round Pizza Hut.

Now, in it's place, there will be homes for hundreds of people. Given the recent restaurant boom, Oakland needs this much more than it needs a restored diner.

Jack London was a champagne socialist who lived on a ranch in Sonoma County. Hypocrite.
