When he arrived, Chief Magnus had a tough assignment, and he got to it with intelligence, creativity, integrity and compassion. He set a high standard, and the City Manager and Council know will be hard pressed to find a better leader - but there is surely talent out there, and I think all of is in the City of Richmond are united in wanting to see the Chief's legacy continued.
What a piece of crap the Another Planet people are! If I was there I would have asked for my money back! And don't the SFPD got better things to do?
We live in Pt Richmond just a few blocks from the refinery. And almost every day, our mail contains Chevron produced hit pieces against one or more of the independent progressive candidates, and slick brochures making Nate Bates look like the hero he isn't. It's very dismaying to watch them try to buy the election. But corporations are people too, right?
I echo Mary Eisenhart's comment. It's a crime to steal visual artists work, but no one seems to care that musician's are ripped off every day. Such is the age of all things digital. My suggestion: work in life-size bronze. It will be a while until 3D printers catch up to that!
This is good reporting. It was sickening to see the money that the Beverage Industry and Chevron pumped into the Richmond election. It is a shame that the Soda Tax lost, and a shame that Corkey Booze decided that his ticket to fame was being a constant irritant to all his colleagues but Nat Bates, who is obviously bought and paid for by our neighbors at Chevron.
Smart growth = real estate development.
I've seen the Jonah Kit live, and Watchman does a credible job writing and performing his caffeinated folk tales of modern life. I think that while its the lyrics that may be Dylanesque, perhaps he's been listening to Bowie for vocal inspiration. His voice is quirky, but perfect pitch isn't everything - if it were, we'd have to condemn such talented songwriters as Jonathan Richman and Lou Reed to the trash bin.
