Re: “Stop Blaming Artists and Musicians for the Ghost Ship Fire. Blame People In Power Who Screwed Up.

Where do people get the idea that artists should be given affordable housing ahead of manual laborers, low-level office workers, etc.? They don't seem to realize how elitist this sounds.

Re: “Oakland Official Handling Coal Controversy Personally Invested in Fossil Fuels

Questioning Claudia Cappio's integrity is your prerogative but if you look closer you'll see a good and honorable person. She's a pragmatist in the end. When she sees the inevitable approach and it has negatives to it she looks for the best ways to minimize them. She understands constructive compromise but would never compromise principles. As for her small investment portfolio, if you understand stocks you know there are about zero clean stocks; somewhere one is connected to the next. I bet if we looked at most stock portfolios, including those of Cappio's critics, we'd find similar scenarios. Don't try to malign a good public servant in a try to score cheap points. I, too, am certain we shouldn't be mining or shipping coal ANYWHERE, but due process, crossing the t's and dotting the i's, has to be followed.
