Re: “Most Active Activist

I invite Richard Lee to come to southwest Florida (bring friends) and help the movement explode here when amendment 2 passes in Nov. I would love to help you make a difference Mr. Lee down here in this wonderful sunny state. We need help, seriously. The little guys.... We need y'all to come show is the California way.

Re: “Best Places to See Holiday Lights

If you go on the Arlington (Berkley side) you will see a home that looks like it is right out of Las Vegas. People come from everywhere to see it. Also, Moser Lane (towards the top of the hill) has a HUGE plot of land that they do an almost life-size nativity scene.

Re: “Best Baby Massage

Baby massage is really essential for our tiny tots; as it helps to improve their muscle strength, flexible and strong. Apart from muscle it also helps to make bone stronger; therefore approximately from 1 month our baby needs right massage and to perform these acts we should go for expert advice. I hope from here also we can learn some crucial facts and I am sure we are able to perform good baby massage.

Re: “Best Breakfast Sandwich

HI Russel - NJ bred & born here, and I beg to differ. Taylor Ham refers to the real deal, made by the Taylor Provisions Co, "Pork Roll" is the cheap imitation that lesser diners would serve.

On a recent visit to the homeland, I figured out the source of the difference: only Taylor Ham is subjected to a lactic acid fermentation (like many traditional sausages), while Pork Roll is just the chopped pig and spices.

Re: “Best Tenants Rights Organizers

I have been more impressed with this local campaign than anything that has happened in years in Oakland. Shutting down the City Council meeting seems to have been an effective strategy in gaining time and media attention. It's hard to come from behind and organize neighbors effectively. A million thanks to the City staffer (?) who leaked the memo from City Attorney Barbara Parker that might have killed the sweetheart deal with UrbanCore. So many of the most important City decisions happen in "closed session" and that's a shame for those of us community activists who should at least have a chance to weigh in. Same thing happened with the 5 new Bay Bridge billboards (although we at Scenic East Bay were able to help pull the plug on 2 of them.) Kudos EUJ!

Re: “Best Police Watchdog

I agree with this perspective. Mr. Finnell has brought professionalism, experience and commitment to police accountability in Oakland. We expect that he will continue to strive to strengthen police oversight and confront the racial disparities that continue to exist in police encounters.

Re: “Best Twitter Hashtag for Oakland Politics

Actually I have the honor of tweeting #oakmtg first, in July 2009, when I entered it into a hashtag dictionary. It was Echa Schneider's idea and she ran the blog which was a forum for civic discussion before Twitter came along. A few days later the two of us and Sean livetweeted the Council meeting of July 28, 2009.…

Re: “Best Political Race Heading into 2016

Maybe the top-two primary won't exist in 2016. The lawsuit against it filed by the Green, Peace & Freedom, and Libertarian Parties is still not over.
