Re: “Get Away and Spread Some Cheer

When all the "you must go there" types have gone elsewhere, peace and quiet returns to my neighborhood. Its true beauty reemerges.

Then I find I have gotten away from what is most annoying and irritating about contemporary urban life: the presence of all those fast lane travelers obeying orders to hit the road.

If you choose to go to Big Sur, please be aware that the traffic footprint has resulted in horrible littering, traffic, and people using nature as an outhouse. It's not much fun to find toilet paper and turds in turnoffs or back in the canyons. Please be considerate.

Re: “Best Landlord History Lesson: Andrew Mousalimas

Gabrielle:

Great appreciation of Andy. When I moved to the Piedmont Avenue Oakland in 1975 Andy and Mary were running the 1st Tuesday Club at the Kings X. It was organized by Nick Petris (Oakland Senator from 1966 1996 pre term limits) district staff. I got invited by Bruce Black, a long time Democratic activist and log time member of the Oakland Planning Commission in the early 1980s. In the days before e-mail it was a time for democratic electeds (and a few activists) to get together and return phone calls. By that time I started going, Mary had stopped running the kitchen at the Kings X every day, but she served lunch for the 1st Tuesday Club. Andy and Mary were great and the 1st Tuesday Club gave people a chance to talk fact to face at least once a month.
