Re: “Delage to Softly Open at Swan's Market with Michelin-Starred Sushi Chef at the Helm

"Somewhere in the ballpark of $40–$60 a person. While that isn't cheap, it's exceedingly reasonable for omakase."

Sure to draw lots of diners from Deep East Oakland for a welcome break from the usual humdrum. While they await the $12 an hour jobs City Hall has promised them.

Re: “Richmond Developer Pushes Two Ballot Measures

Mr.Poe - I realize this is a shot in the dark; however, if you would take a moment to contact me I believe I have an opportunity that would be of great interest to you. It involves a large piece of real estate in Richmond that is available : benochson10@gmail.Com

Re: “Oakland to Disclose Information on Police Misconduct

Summary reports are only better than no reports.

We have to publicly demand a promise from every one of our locally elected state Assemblypersons and Senators to rewrite the California Public Records Act sections aka the "police officer's bill of rights." That set of laws in conjunction with the 1996 Copley Ca Supreme Court decision, makes it near impossible for the public and even civilian complainants to find out the details of police conduct investigations regardless of whether (as is typical) conducted by police officers, or by civilian authorities.

Every time reform of those laws comes up the California police unions flex their political strength to crush the attempt.

Before this June primary, and continuing to November elections ask every one of the candidates running in your district for state office, to commit to overturning Copley and the police officers bill of rights. Don't assume that just because the politician is progressive on other issues that she or he will stand up the police and sheriff unions on this issue. You'd be surprised by their voting records but not if you looked at the campaign contribution records.

We have to make our elected officials think real hard before they accept any campaign funds or endorsements from the police and sheriff unions. Think twice before they accept the fund raising dinners sponsored by police unions.

Re: “Marijuana Could Lose Its Federal 'Most Dangerous Drug' Status By June

Our Governments attitude toward MJ is only going to allow the black market to thrive.The only way to impact the black market.Is to allow people to grow and consume there own Mj. No demand no reason for a black market.The current regulation and taxation is only going to allow the black market to flourish. The black market can all ways under cut the Governments prices by 30 cents on the dollar.Shush now,our government is working hard to keep the black market alive and well. Law enforcement should remain silent.They should have no voice in this matter. The Law has had 80 years to solve this problem. It would be nice if the Law had the courage to admit they have failed miserably.

Re: “At Mien Tay, Pho is Not King

Nice article, I love pho and grew up with Vietnamese ninjas in Salinas/Seaside. One of the dishes reminded me of catching striped bass off the beach in marina and having my friends mom cook it. She would sear it and simmer it in a fish sauce with shallots and peppers. Amazing to say the least. If someone out here has a recipe please share, I love to cook and never was able to get the full recipe from my friend Bin.

Re: “Rock the Bike is Greening the Festival Experience

I have a ton of respect for Paul and Rock The Bike and all these musicians who load up their extracycles with sound equipment and bike to their gigs and use people power to power their shows. If the planet is healed it will be because of dedicated people like them.

Re: “Goodbye, Express Readers

Thank you for your reporting and your snarky writing, when such was not just appropriate, but required. Telling truth to and about power i.e. our senior Senator; the rot at the Coastal Commission and private profiteers in our national park are but a few examples. You published stories that other so-called news organizations turned a blind eye to or dumbed down for click bait. So, thanks, Bob. Long may you run. I've set up a Google Alert in your name and look forward to your ongoing outstanding reportage. With deep bows. Susan Ives

Re: “Oakland to Disclose Information on Police Misconduct

Rather than advertising "pride in progress" (and stalling for a mere 16 years following a legal mandate), it would be a small step in the direction of transparency if our "leaders" could say something about why we have waited so long. With an apology.

But, sadly, they can't.

Re: “Deadly Oakland Fire Ignites Tenant-Landlord Dispute

Jill Connaway thank you for your concern. It took a very long time to find housing. Many of us are living in substandard or painfully expensive situations, and most of us had to leave the neighborhood temporarily. After doing nothing progressive for ten months post-fire, Marienthal finally filed a preapplication for updating to 2016 code on Nov 30th. I hear the plans are done and that it's out to bid with contractors. It's heartbreaking that my former home and recording studio has been destroyed by rain and mold in the meantime.

Re: “Deadly Oakland Fire Ignites Tenant-Landlord Dispute

And still the warehouse on 24th Street stands burned out and empty. No construction has been done. It's so sad to look out my kitchen window and see this mess. And I hope the former residents have been able to find housing in this ridiculous market. Sad all around.

Re: “A Green Car Buyer's Guide

"They don't do any harm and are not any inefficient when they stay unused."

A car is a costly resource sink. A car is the embodiment of an enormous amount of waste of natural resources and of environmental pollution which are involved in making it and keeping it running.

Just sitting, your car takes up space, along with the millions of other cars out there, that could be used for people and plants, for parks, gardens and creative play spaces.

On the other hand, public transportation uses up far less space and the natural resources required and resulting environmental pollution are far less consequential.

I think there are introductory classes in most colleges and even in high schools with words like "ecology" or "environment" in their titles. Look for a class and take it.
