Re: “Noteworthy

How is it that neither the man on the front cover of your paper nor the play he is directing are covered in this story? You talk about a play that is already over (Shotgun's excellent Twelfth Night), and a play at the same venue (Ragged Wing's Redwolf), but inexplicably fail to mention that Michael French is directing THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, currently running Thurs-Sun at The Flight Deck through Sep. 21.

Are there any plans to redress this massive oversight?

Re: “Little Mokka Takes on Big Starbucks

I don't get the Starbucks hate—if you have a better local business, God bless, and you'll be fine. Competition is not a bad thing. Ashby & Telegraph is pretty tame as far as busy intersections go, and it should have better transit service anyway. If traffic becomes a problem, then maybe we can finally get bus rapid transit (BRT) built out to Berkeley :) But I don't see the Starbucks attracting any more traffic than Whole Foods already does.

Re: “The Art of Neighborhood Creation

Gentrification is bad; any change may be gentrification; any change may be bad. For Oakland gentrification is the new axis of evil.

Re: “Little Mokka Takes on Big Starbucks

If Mokka is in fact so well liked by the locals then hopefully an additional coffee shop will just make Mokka be even better and try harder to be the best they can be. It seems rather arbitrary to not allow another coffee shop within a certain distance of Mokka. (If that's what people were really hoping for.)

I think the "traffic" issue was a red herring, and Starbucks isn't exactly the Evil Empire anyway. Mokka is going to need to get on with business and be the best coffee shop / sandwich place they can be and they will do well. (Specially since the locals like them so much.)

Re: “Your Home and Climate Change

Must be nice to live in a world so privileged to restrict your diet as you desire. It's nice, the excess allows Americans to supplement proteins and other nutrients readily available to them with other's that are even more plentiful. Takes most people in the world hours, sometimes days; of calorie burning effort to catch, clean and prepare their meal. All the while we jump in our "eco friendly" nickel/ lithium-ion hybrids with their gross sulfur oxide emissions enrout to Whole Foods. Let's buy this acid rain soaked organic kale, and care more about the rights of the abused humans who ultimately slaughters the cow. Human rights ARE animal rights.

Helping PEOPLE solves your 1st world concerns.

Re: “How Cyclists On Telegraph Mean Business

The problem with the bike/anti-car folks is you can't rely on their version of the facts. I don't know about the East Bay, but the claims about Valencia Street in San Francisco are deceptive because only a traffic lane was removed, not street parking, to make those bike lanes. That's why business owners on that street weren't upset when the bike lane was created.
http://district5diary.blogspot.com/2013/04…

The opposite is the case with the bike lane project proposed for Polk Street, which could remove more than 100 parking spaces on Polk to make protected bike lanes. That commercial corridor has many restaurants and small businesses which, not surprisingly, oppose losing all that parking for their customers.

The reference to the Polk Street survey is also deceptive, since it found that only 5% of visitors to Polk Street arrived by bicycle.

Re: “Electricity May Go Green and Local

Thanks for covering the exciting news out of Alameda County. One correction: AB 2145, the Utility Power Grab of 2014, wouldn't "reform" Community Choice, it would destroy it by making it impossible for Community Choice programs to enroll new customers. If East Bay residents want a choice other than PG&E, they should contact their Senator and tell her to VOTE NO on AB 2145. You can learn more at www.no2145.org.

Re: “How Cyclists On Telegraph Mean Business

I wish these improvements had been completed a few years ago … my decision to buy a car was influenced by the lack of adequate bike facilities on Telegraph, and my health has suffered since. Here's to a healthier, bike-friendly future!
