Re: “Cruel Diagonals' Atmospheric Disturbance

The only sure thing about a piece of writing from Sam Lefebvre is that:

- the facts will be intentionally misstated
- the story will be warped by Sam's own anger at being a failure as both a journalist and a musician.

Major Pass on this BS

Re: “Eviction Protections Could Be Extended to Thousands More Oakland Homes Through Proposed Ballot Measure

Society's approach these days are to make decisions at far ends of the spectrum and justify how much it makes sense compared to the other. Extremes rarely resolve issues like these. I am a landlord and a tenant in a owner occupied triplex. I think being a landlord in the bay area is a racket and many landlords use this as their only income which is ridiculous.

I had a tenant for five years paying me good rent, she left and it left me with a couple week's worth of work to get the place in shape for the next tenant. Small price to pay for what I got in return. And the majority of the money I've made off the place to date has been through appreciation of the property (and I bought in a relatively cheap and moderately desirable neighborhood compared to the hotter ones). Again the whole thing is a racket and I'll play the game to not get left behind but it doesn't feel entirely just. Maybe I'm unlike most landlords in that I don't feel entitled to the income I make off the property.

As a tenant of an owner occupied triplex, my landlord has increased my rent 60% in 5 years. I didn't know about the loophole before I moved in. He's kept the rent just competitive enough to my other options that I haven't made the big jump to another unit. Those kinds of increases and more are not unusual for such units and they are not reasonable increases. That being said, allowing increases by CPI is not fair to landlords and allowing unlimited increases to tenants is unfair to tenants. Something reasonably in the middle, enough to meet everyone's needs, is better for society and incentivizes developers to invest and build where they can make a net positive return off their hard work.

Re: “Why Hasn’t Oakland Sued the NFL Yet?

Libby, JPA, A's are all in on the plan to exit the Raiders from Oakland. They are now giving ForeverOakland folks that same treatment, they gave the Raiders. The same foot dragging, constant request for more time, etc. A lawsuit won't happen, because they are afraid of all the insider dealings between them be exposed in public discovery.

Re: “A Path Forward

The staff and reconstituted leadership of the Express should be commended for coming forward and explaining the context of these management changes to their readership. Better to have a clear and honest explanation now, and start off their new era with that, rather than just sweep things under the rug.

Regardless of whether you think individual persons can be redeemed, an institution like the Express is different. It may not be perfect - no publication is - but it serves a vital purpose and can change for the better. it's important to recognize the sacrifices these folks are making, and have been making, and (hopefully) will continue making.

Re: “Surviving in the Hospital Desert

It is true, as Sandra Davenport points out, that both Kaiser Richmond and Alta Bates emergency departments still offer stroke treatment, but that doesn't make either of them a full service emergency room, as neither has a cath lab. My mother had a stroke which turned out to be the result of a heart attack. If any other member of my family had a stroke, I would want them transported right away to a full service emergency department that includes a cardiac cath lab.

It is certainly a very good thing to have a primary stroke center at Kaiser, especially as we will soon be losing the one at Alta Bates, but it does not really solve any of the many problems we face as an area without adequate access to emergency department and other hospital services - and I think Kaiser Richmond people will be the first to tell you their small emergency room cannot handle the emergencies of the whole area.

Re: “Why Hasn’t Oakland Sued the NFL Yet?

I agree with Gary Patton and others who think that pursuing litigation would be throwing more money into a futile effort to keep the Raiders in Oakland. Time for them to leave for good!

Re: “A Path Forward

Interesting in a pathetic way.

1) I agree with Allison Landa.

2) Jason100watt makes an excellent point. Having been the target of a small paper's sloppy yellow journalism, I see these small publications as a double edged sword. They can do a lot of damage to entities they misreport upon, be incredibly self righteous about their errors (as if their "S-word" don't stink, etc), and seem to be cavalier and almost gleeful in the wielding of their rag as a weapon of particular destruction.

3) I read Judy Colley's story, and what she reports really sucks. I feel for her and I get it. But I have to circle back to Allison Landa's comment-airing dirty laundry like this just pulls the entire institution down and distracts from more material concerns.

I am sure everyone associated with this mess has made some sort of mongo error at some time-for to err big time is being human. That is not a rationalization, or a pass for offensive or idiotic behavior, (both reported at length in this news thread). To me, errors are not the important thing per se-it is what is done about them that matters. The rest is noise. There is an AWFUL lot of noise here. Public axe grinding galore. Pathetic. (Maybe Jerry Springer could turn a buck on this.) Grow up-all of you!

To the staff that has been beset with unfairnesses-I feel for you-truly. (Been there, had that 1001 times, and likely always will.) But listen-that's life in the big city gang-and sometimes that life is the tar pits. EBX is a small closely held business-deal with it. You don't like the boss? QUIT. Sue him. Start your own paper and drive that boss outta business. But seriously-all the whining is off putting as hell and makes me not want to read the rag. Is that the goal? You might want to rethink how much you want to sweat the smaller stuff in public. A little sweat cools the skin, a lot dehydrates the body. Think it thru.

I am glad Kathleen Richards got her autonomy, (what good is an editor without that EBX?), but I think she needs to focus on the 80, and let the 20 go.

Get over yourselves people-there are some HUGE fish to fry out there....(the world is a complete mess!) can't fry the big catches if you are absorbed in what smacks as selfish mini me-me-me dramas.

Re: “A Path Forward

I am reading about some of Mr. Buel's conduct. One thing I don't understand is the extremely vague accusation of him using the "n-word".

Just what about his use of it was a problem? Cannot someone use the word at all???? Did he call someone that name? Did he toss it around in some inappropriate way? This part of the accusations against him don't make a lick of sense to me at this point. Perhaps people are purposely being extremely vague on advice of their attorneys, I don't know.

But the question remains, aside from the editorial interference and sexual language and conduct, what was it specifically about "the n-word" that he said was so inappropriate?

Re: “Why Hasn’t Oakland Sued the NFL Yet?

Libby Shaaf needs to go. Oakland is a ghetto needs alot. If this money can go to the tax fund do it. After the lawsuits from the whore who sued the city with no evidence to these wrongful injuries etc WE CAN USE EVERY DOLLAR

Re: “Turning the Page

On the topic of score settling, there is such a thing as restorative justice. there is also such a thing as karma. I sure hope that Telegraph Media will move forward with not just a code of conduct, but a commitment to diversity in hiring practices. , I would also like to note that if you have worked alongside Buel for 13 years, you surely must have witnessed or overheard some things which were clearly inappropriate. Yet you did or said nothing. If this is accurate, you're an enabler, as well as a benefactory. Most of the revealing stories about racial topics which have run in the paper over the years were not written by you. You endorsed Libby Schaaf as a progressive, yet her record is solidly regressive on OPD, particularly around misconduct, and she has done nothing to stem African American displacement while accelerating gentrification. Her sole progressive issue, defying Trump and ICE, is a politically-calculated PR stunt, as well as a position that CM Guillen took months before she did. Maybe it's a moot point if you're not writing anymore, but by Oakland standards, Schaaf is a moiderate at best until her record says otherwise. What isnt a moot point is that now is the perfect time to truly embrace progressive values and address displacement and gentrification in a way Telegraph Media has yet to do sufficiently.
