Re: “New Ballpark Could Devastate Lake Merritt's Birds

Sacrificing the Lake, it's wildlife and the neighborhoods around it for the gain of a privately held business is horribly wrong. The whole idea is built on the assumption that folks will be coming to games from downtown when the majority of fans come from elsewhere in the Bay Area. This location is wrong for the environment, the neighborhood, the college, and Oakland.

Re: “The Laney College Opposition

Thinking that the ballpark won't kill Laney off and that all the fans will suddenly take public transport to get there and we Oaklanders won't be paying for any of the improvements demanded of the infrastructure is blindness caused by dollar signs. Build out the Coliseum site with a great, human scale, attractive ballpark, help create a support community around that. Ballparks do not need to be superimposed on an existing neighborhood.

Re: “Justice League Is a Cheap-Looking Spectacle

This is an idiotic review. The movie is fun and exciting. Not as good as the recent Marvel movies, clearly, but much better than past DC efforts and headed in the right direction. Affleck and Cavil were good as well as Gadot and Ezra Miller. The problem was the dialogue, angst for Cyborg and Aquaman, who were played by mediocre actors. Nolan damaged the DC franchise with too much pretentious style and Zack Snyder is a so-so director. Warners made a huge mistake

Re: “Justice League Is a Cheap-Looking Spectacle

Well, you're right about showing the audience contempt... only that it didn't come from the movie, but the critic who can easily state that fans will convince themselves they are watching a good movie ...

Only if I could do the same about reading a review...

Re: “Citing Possible School Closures and Fiscal Problems, Oakland School Board Denies New Charter School Petition

The student on the board has been poorly trained in Public School governance. Not really her fault; the adults do not seem to understand their jobs either. The Board members may not legally "vote against the proposal out of philosophical opposition to charters." The Board's role is to see that the laws governing public schools are implemented fairly, consistently, and without bias and/or discrimination. They are NOT legislators. Charter law is clear and OUSD staff knows that this school meets all requirements. Too bad our Bd of Ed is more interested in grandstanding than good governance.

Re: “New Oakland Law Fails to Protect Low-Income Residents

So the owner of the hotel can't sell it because people live there? Well, is it that entity's obligation to keep things status quo instead of exercising the right of ownership to do with the property as what is most economically viable? Get government and activists out of private property where it doesn't deal with zoning and usage. Have the City buy the property then if they want to continue having it adorn the streets as a flop house. Might as well.
