Re: “These Bay Area Businesses Want to Build Trump's Border Wall

You might want to check your references before including incorrect information in your articles.... RIO lasers in Santa Clara, which is owned by OptaSense in the UK, actually manufactures semiconductor lasers and has NOT made any bid on the FedBiz website for a border wall.

Re: “What Was That All About?: Colossal

You hit it right on the head. I assume the film thinks itself quirkily original when it is in fact just plain odd and unsatisfying.

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Fire Department Still Seriously Under-Staffed

Wrong about the police department. It has 39 vacant sworn officer positions - 5 percent, not 2 percent. Mr. BondGraham makes the same mistake he made last December. The 39 authorized but unfilled positions are listed in the OPD Personnel Distribution Report for the beginning of April. But Mr. BG insists on using a report based on a convoluted definition of vacancy. That report lists some sergeant vacancies but not one police officer vacancy! Not sensible and not true (there are actually 21 officer vacancies), but with Mr BG, ideology trumps facts.

Re: “Oakland's Poorest Neighborhoods Will Be The Most Susceptible to Flooding Due To Climate Change And Sea-Level Rise

Sounds like time to build on higher ground. In San Francisco we have the opposite situation with most of the "high-value" property at risk of floods and sinking into the landfill mud. How will the wealthy cope? Will they lose their fortunes or sell out in time to beat the tides?

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Fire Department Still Seriously Under-Staffed

The Chron article points out yet another aspect of fire-safety failure in Oakland--recently there have been serious fires in homeless camping areas in Oakland.

It's a double-whammy. More people displaced by gentrification and poor development policy who are also vulnerable to fires when they have to squat on our streets.

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Fire Department Still Seriously Under-Staffed

Here he goes again... Half written, half done work by the carpet bagger. Here's a real article on the problem:

See how it should be done?
