Re: “Rebecca Kaplan Is Out and At Large

Speaking of identity politics, why does Kaplan say she's a lesbian when, for years, she identified as bisexual? As recently as 2008, the Bay Area Reporter identified her as bi. In the 1990s, she co-edited a collection of essays called "Bisexual Politics: Theories, Queries, and Visions," which was a milestone in bisexual literature at the time and helped bi people define themselves as decidedly separate from not only straight people but also gay men and lesbians. I'm not sure whether Kaplan has changed the way she identifies or the mainstream press believes that being bi is the same thing as being gay or lesbian.

Re: “Alameda's Measure B Loses By 70 Points

Didn't the measure lose by 70 percentage points? 85 minus 15 is 70. Isn't that how it's calculated?

The western span of the Bay Bridge runs between Yerba Buena Island and San Francisco. Its replacement can't be behind schedule, as it's not being replaced.

Re: “Judge Speaks Her Mind

The admonishment came from the state Commission on Judicial Performance, not the state Commission of Judicial Practice. The latter body does not exist. The CoCo Times got it wrong too.

Re: “Facebook Under Fire for Breastfeeding Policy

It's the Hayward Daily Review, not the Hayward Daily News. The latter does not exist.

Re: “The Bay Guardian is Right! Who Knew?

The Blue Angels are U.S. Navy planes, not Air Force -- although I guess seeing the Blue Angels *could* make kids want to join the Air Force.
