Re: “The Oakland Museum of California's New Gallery of California Natural Sciences Is Awesome

The reopening turned out to be a terrific event. A perfect Friday night distraction for my family. I highly recommend the exhibits.

Re: “Are More Cops the Answer?

The LA Times looks at the problems understaffing are causing inside OPD instead of looking at some study that has nothing to do with OPD.

Re: “Are More Cops the Answer?

This article describes "Councilwoman Libby Schaaf" as a "Founding member of Make Oakland Better Now."

This is not technically untrue, but the short sentence is somewhat misleading. Ms. Schaaf was not a Councilwoman when she was a founding member of Make Oakland Better Now. She was not even a candidate, in fact she resigned from the board, as would be appropriate, before she became a candidate. She has not returned to the board since then.

An uninformed reader could get the impression that Make Oakland Better Now is a front group for Ms. Schaaf's agenda, which is simply not true. This is in stark contrast to the Block By Block Organizing Network, which is not only a front for Jean Quan, but is also not registered as a PAC, a 501c3, or a 501c4, or registered in any way in fact, while they have spent money that is arguably campaigning expenses.
