Re: “The Beat Won’t Go On: Chicago Landlord Evicts Coffee With A Beat, Longtime Adams Point Shops

I'm sure all the pro-big money, Ayn Rand types love this news. Adams Point looks more and more like a frat/sorority house in Santa Barbara exploded and all the bros and Ohmygerd girls landed there

Re: “State Sen. Nancy Skinner: Latest Fatal Oakland Fire Was 'Preventable'

@Anika, that is simply not true. Rent control is NOT stopping landlords from making repairs, greed is.

The problem is rent control in Oakland.
You cannot just evict someone or move tenants out for repairs ... you have to have Just Cause.
Rent control is allowing tenants to stay in dilapidated housing and preventing property owners to maintain their properties. That's why 1/2 of Oakland looks like a ghetto.
Rent Control + Cheap Rent = Ghetto

So they want to build something like the Midtown Beer garden in Sacramento. They were one of the first Cargo Container usages in the Sacramento Area, They were shut down in having the containers be shown to the public, they had to cover them with ugly siding cause they did not understand the concept.Oh well, it's always packed and features great German Beer and craft beers as well.
