Re: “Summer Blockbuster Movies That Might Be Cool (But Probably Will Disappoint)

No, no, no, no! I beg to differ . . . . "Independence Day" is not, as you say, "soulless, barefaced garbage"! It's great! Really, I think it's great! And I hope Part 2 is as great as Part 1!

Re: “Town Business: Bus Stop Scandal, 'Rigged' City Contract, Affordable Housing for Six-Figure Incomes, and More Body Cameras

For what it is worth: in Alameda County, a three-person household is moderate income if this household makes anywhere between $64,451 and $101,000. A four-person household is moderate income if this household makes anywhere between $71,601 and $112,200. Maybe change the program to make eligible moderate income households with incomes above 100% area median but below 110% the area median? IOW, instead of limiting the program to those moderate income households (3 person definition) between $64,451 and $84,150, extend the maximum limit now from $84,150 (ie 100% of area median) to $101,000 (ie 110% of area median), which is still moderate income for a family of three. Take this baby step before arguing for 150% of area median.

Re: “Remembering Chris Thompson

I'm sorry to hear about Chris' passing. Several years ago in my first go-around on Council I remember mentioning to him that I lived in Barrington in the mid-80s while an undergrad at Cal, and that Kriss Worthington was the hall monitor [ so to speak :) ] at another UCB co-op I lived at later. Whether he lived in the co-ops I can't recall him saying, but we definitely got a chuckle about the Barrington reference. RIP.

Re: “Shakespeare & Co. Books Abruptly Shutters After 51 Years in Berkeley

Oh, no! Bummer. Now when I go back to stroll down Telegraph, I know I'll feel genuinely lost....BTW...if Powell's is that same Portland book store I remember going to about 2 years ago, they will be a nice caretaker of Shakespeare's legacy.

Re: “Ten FBI Agents Joining Oakland Police Department

I don't mean to be, uh, anal. And, I have utmost respect for law enforcement. I think people who know me know this to be the case. But . . . in my **opinion** . . . this is an improper comingling of federal and state-local governments, in so far as the lines separating the two are blurred in the fashion **specifically** described here. Constitution, schm-onstitution?
