Re: “Oakland Readies for Housing Boom

"But that effort is just getting off the ground, with the city earlier this month approving a $1.1 million study on impact fees with the goal of approving the recommendations of that research in early 2016."

So, a year later, and $1.1 mil in consultant's fees, we still don't have a commitment for a decision on impact fees. Why not build some accountability into this splurge, first? And second, why hire someone for $1,000,000 when you can hire a good data analyst for $100K who will do what you say? Third, isn't there already impact fee studies that have been performed for other California cities that might be instructive? Fourth, has anyone reviewed the existing literature to see if such a study could be scaled back or eliminated?

Re: “A Rush to Judgment on Fracking

Just stop. Pennsylvania released info this week about over 200 contamination incidents related to fracking. Stop pretending that fracking is OK. It isn't. This is just embarrassing.

Re: “Weed-Infused Sex Lube Hits Market: Meet, Foria

My gyn provided me with a prescription for a compounded testosterone cream that has really helped me regain my libido. I have three conditions that cause me problems in that area and the testosterone helps one. Maca helps the second, and cannabis helps the third. This gives me the ability to enjoy profound and deep romantic relationships, which prove to be very healthy for me overall at age 62.

Re: “Do Disabled Motorists Need Free Parking?

The solution to the placard problem is not to charge disabled people, but rather to check whether the placard is legitimate and whether the driver has the proper documentation in the vehicle. Make the fines high for using the placards illegally. When a privilege is abused there are consequences. Those consequences should follow from the enforcement of the law, not punishing the disabled. I have trouble walking. I would rather be able to walk. The ability to park where I need to without having to worry about meters and time is invaluable to me.

Re: “Lanesplitter Workers Quit in Protest

Sheesh. You make it sound like there's jobs all over the place. Did you ever think that people are working as much as they can, trying to support their families? Workers need to be paid enough to at least survive. And why wouldn't a food-handling establishment want their workers on health insurance right away?

Re: “Breaking Bad

Hilarious. Sits just this side of the line of being tasteless.
