Re: “Richmond Rent Increase and Eviction Moratorium Blocked by Mayor Tom Butt and Two Councilmembers

Middle-of-the-road Alameda passed a rent moratorium . . . twice.

Re: “Make Voting Great Again: Introducing the Express' Weekly Election 2016 Column

Just to be clear: what I meant by "Goldilocks" was that the rent ordinance adopted by Council in March and that we recently placed on the November ballot rests neatly in between the rent control activists' initiative ("too strong") and the California Apartment Association's initiative ("too weak") -- our ordinance, as Goldilocks would say, is "not too strong, not too weak, but something in between that's just right." Thanks! : )

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.
