Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I agree with Eddie...Bun Mam Soc Trang has the best Vietnamese soups I've had in either Oakland, SF or NYC. Well, at least since V's on Webster closed down about 10 years' ago.
Different of course from omnipresent Pha...and thus possibly to Vietnamese homey for some americans. But oooohhhh so good.
We'll get Bun Mam Soc Trang a place to open again soon enough!
Len, "bad schools" is simply not true for all Oakland schools anymore. There are many many good schools too. Oakland's Middle Schools are improving and as they reach a certain level they will create a transformative pipeline that will have a snowball effect.
This means more students staying in OUSD all the way, and more families staying in Oakland. Especially if Oakland can solve its crime problem too.
The Middl Schools are following the Elementary Schools and getting a lot better.
We're not quite the next Brooklyn, but we're very very close.
Any Council President is going to have a hard job during public speaking when rules are set and many speakers (mostly those rude to council members) don't follow them. The Council President is damned when they don't stick to the rules and damned when they enforce them and are then called all kinds of names.
As for the feud between Reid and Quan, there are two side to that feud. That Gammon (who IS an Oakland resident) blames only Reid without any supporting information (like journalists are supposed to) shows the bias of both this "journalist" and "news"paper.
I think both Reid and Kernighan have strengths and weaknesses, but overall I like both and wish them the best of luck with a difficult job.
