You cannot shame or bully people into shopping local.

Re: “The Town Kitchen: Food Delivery for a Cause

Gawd I love this place. The past 10 years have been amazing to watch. Viva La Town!

Re: “Turning The Volume Up On Oakland

Love the statement: "We're capturing a certain moment of time in Oakland," said Tavella. "We were having trouble confining it to a certain sound, since there is so much good music here." Ah, just like our amazing denizens. Spicy variety!

Re: “Setting the Record Straight About Oakland

Elmano Gonsalves is my new hero. I get so tired of trying to "defend" Oakland to old, closed minds near and far. Many of them are here in the East Bay -- even working with me in Oakland -- and they still seem to think it's the 90's (and it has nothing to do with their outdated wardrobes ;)
Seriously, though, I get very frustrated. I often throw my hands up and tell them, you are right! It's terrible here. Tell your cohorts and do STAY AWAY! We don't need their kind anyway, right? After all, they're the first ones to run out to the news crew with the proper soundbite of fear.

Re: “Oakland's New Playground for Artists

Rad. PS He probably meant commodify not commodity ("I don't want commodity fetishism to create these distances between me and my own heritage")

Re: “Stingray Spotted in Lake Merritt!

I saw one about 8 years ago near Alameda (in "the estuary") so it's not surprising. But, it's probably a really good sign for the health of the Lake. Of course, the water quality folks could probably elaborate on that ;)
