Re: “Protest Trump's Inauguration in Oakland, But Please Don't Be Violent

I ask the OPD and their covert operators to not seed demonstrations with provocateurs who are the ones who start the violence and then quickly disappear, letting the cops assault nonviolent protestors.

The vandalism that has plagued Oakland protests has been virtually always started by some white thugs, then blacks are attacks by the cops. And sometimes the cops attack nonwhites, of course. But the provocateurs are hired thugs. Not the demonstrators.

Re: “Barry Jenkins Walks Out in the Moonlight

This is the best picture I have seen in 2016. It is kinda holy, in addition to being superbly written, acted and directed. Like life itself, its all about love. I've seen it twice so far and will likely buy it when it is available for sale. I am glad we are seeing more and more films about black lives. Now show me some Latino stories and Asian stories. Please.

Re: “Berkeley Progressives Win Big, but Lament Trump Presidency

I have been told, and this has been confirmed by countless longtime Berkeley residents, that anything south of University is South Berkeley.

The article could use an edit, for it does not make complete sense. Nancy Armstrong Temple was arrestsed at the Adeline encampment AND the encampment at Milvia & Allston is in S. Berkeley, it is where the Adeline campers moved when evicted from the Adeline spot.

Judge Seligman totally rocks. And the investors are vermin.

Re: “Take a Dip into 'Hockney'

I thought this movie was a bit of a failure. After seeing Hockney's stunning recent work at the Deyoung last year, I kept hoping, through this VERY long documentary full of a lot of repetition and meaningless trivia (IMO), to hear something of Hockney's current thinking. But nope, the end of the film barely hints at Hockney's latest works. Many of the pieces at the recent DeYoung show were monumental, some of the most stunning art I have seen in years and the most stunning stuff was video paintings. The film shows, only in passing, that Hockney began to use iPads but never addresses the deep scope of what Hockney was doing to create the stuff I saw at the DeYoung.

But we heard ad nauseum about his best friend. And we saw voyeuristic hints of his sexual partners, which only should be included in terms of how he integrated his sexuality into his art.

A lot of this film was a snore. And Hockney is still alive. Why not have some contemporary footage of him talking about what he is doing NOW?

Re: “Access Denied

Being a taxpayer or not being a taxpayer has nothing to do with Next Door, a privately owned entity that is positioning itself to make huge sums of money. Private websites have nothing to do with rights. And since when do rights only accrue to taxpayers? All humans have rights and human rights are never dependent on whether or not someone pays taxes.

Re: “Access Denied

If the U.S. Post Office, through their agent a postal carrier/worker, recognized Mr Zint's address, it was not up to Mr. Friedman to unilaterally declare he had no legal address. And it was not up to ND either.

Boundaries, rules, respect: ND is not overflowing with it.
