Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

I suspect terminating some buses to some public schools (while, outrageously, providing bus service to private schools -- how can this be legal? Seems like the Civil Rights Act comes to bear on this) is really about gentrification. The poor kid families are supposed to leave Oakland so more rich folks can move in. Then the buses will return. And the schools themselves will improve.

Re: “Berkeley's Special City Council Election Zeroes In On Housing, Homelessness Issues

Looks like this website not-so-subtly endorses baby Ben. Look at the front page photo for this article: it shows Ben fully and cuts Kate off so one cannot recognize her. The photo should be recropped or removed. Or put a full presentation of Katie's face and clip Ben's face untl he is unrecognizable. You know, act like journalists and be fair.

Re: “Berkeley's Special City Council Election Zeroes In On Housing, Homelessness Issues

Ben Gould has no experience but school and is in his early twenties. Kate Harrison has worked in government for at least twenty years. She is also invited as a consultant around the world as governments try to improve their system of governance. Kate managed the SF entire court system for years.

This kid, Ben, tells completely different speeches depending on his audience. He's a classic flip flopper: he says progressive things to progressive audience and conservative things to real estate interests.

We need honesty and ingegrity. Kate has it and Ben's wildly divergent campaign speeches suggests he'll say anything to win, which indicates a lack of integrity.

Interesting that you only have his campaign donations through 2016. He is said to be raking in real estate money and he has been seen meeting with Tom Bates, our finally-gone bad mayor.

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.
