Re: “The Governor Has No Clothes

Brown needs to lead the way in shutting California's last, aging, unsafe nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon, which sits near 13 earthquake faults in a tsunami zone. The NRC's chief safety inspector at Diablo, Dr. Michael Peck, recommended closing the plant in 2013 until it can be made safe.... so why isn't the CPUC immediately calling for the plant to be closed? As young Governor Brown he promised to prevent Diablo from being licensed, so what happened? That scary nuke is our Fukushima waiting to happen. Governor Brown, do the right thing and protect the citizens of California. Shut Diablo now!

Re: “Berkeley City Council: Good News for Bradley Manning; Not So Much for Gitmo Detainees

Berkeley City Council members who voted for the Resolution-- Arreguin, Anderson, Worthington and Moore-- are to be commended for their support of human rights and for having the courage to take a stand for truth and justice. In addition, they were saying that cleared Guantanamo detainees should be allowed to resettle and leave the Prison, in support of our President's wishes. The others would appear to be more concerned about what Fox News says about Berkeley than what's good for Berkeley and the Nation. Shame on you, Mayor Bates, Linda Maio, Laurie Capitelli and Susan Wengraf. You appear to be under the thumb of the right-wing spinners who it appears are now making policy for Berkeley. The City Manager is seriously out of line telling the City Council to take no action, not based on fiscal implicaitons, of which he said there were NONE, but because someone on the Council asked him to get them off the hook so they wouldn't have to face the Fox News pundits. Am I right? Is our City Council working to please the right wing now?
At least Gordon Wozniak has the courage of his convictions to vote "no", but we didn't appreciate his attempt to skew his public opinion poll towards "no" by leaving out one of the most important facts about the resolution== that it would cost the City no money whatsoever. I wish I could be proud of Berkeley today. Instead I'm ashamed of how easy it is for the right wing to push our City Council around. The citizens of Berkeley need to take heed--- the fear-mongers, haters, liars and screamers are in charge now-- not us. Our Berkeley values of compassion and truth-telling have been sold out to the worst human values-- hatred, racism, lying, manipulation, cowardice and fear.

Re: “Court Slaps Down John Yoo, Again

You're exactly right in your analysis Mr. Gammon. I appreciate your coverage of John Yoo, a hypocritical, unethical, traitor to democracy. Our next Yoo protest is at his house on April 18, 2-3 pm, 1241 Grizzly Peak. This is a "tea party" style protest, so don't wear tie-dye and Birkenstocks--- dress in your Republican finest.
