Re: “Oakland’s Professional Polluters

This illegal dumping must be stopped. It should not be as difficult to prosecute or for citizens to report as it has been. Obviously large scale dumping is more serious but multiple instances of smaller scale dumping both mounts up and amounts to the same polluting crime sooner or later. Glad this slime ball was caught.

A Halal Hot Dog is an affront to a real hot dog. Hot dogs need pork.

Re: “Get Your Money, Murray

"By todays standards, it was fairly mild stuff"

Bruce Maxwell ordered food delivered then, while drunk, pointed a gun in the face of the woman who delivered it. That is not mild stuff by any standards. It is abhorrent and I am glad he's gone.

He proceeded to slash ,219/.300/.281 in AAA last year, so in addition, he sucks. Love the anthem stance though.

Re: “Get Your Money, Murray

I too applaud Kyler Murray for playing the leverage game to his maximum advantage. Far too often it is the MLB and NFL owners who have the players over a barrel in contract negotiations. I have no personal preference for which sport he should pursue. The kid should do what will make him happy. There is no doubt that baseball offers a longer and healthier career. However, there is no guarantee he will make it to the majors to make the big money. See Michael Jordan and Tim Tebow. A quarterback signed in the first round normally receives a big pay check right away and some guaranteed money. With all that being said, A's fans should not fooled by all the media attention around Kyler Murray. From a baseball tool perspective, he is not Bo Jackson or even Deon Sanders. Murray at maybe 5-10, will at best be a .300 hitting 2nd baseman who can steal bases and score runs. He will not be hitting the ball 500 feet and driving in 125 runs a year. For that reason, I don't think the A's should spend any more money on Murray. Players like him are not one of a kind. What they should be doing is addressing the starting pitching problem. After signing Kris Davis to a one year contract reflective of his talent and production, starting pitching is their biggest weakness. I agree that losing Lucroy at the catching position will be a down grade this year. He provided a solid every day presence behind the plate. Given the transient nature of the starting pitching staff, a solid veteran catcher is a must for a team like the A's. At the end of the day, in my opinion, Billy Beane should be replaced. He is not the guy with the vision and influence with other teams to get the A's to the next level. If the goal is to be competitive every year and go home early in September, he has clearly shown that he can do that. If the A's want to beat teams like the Yankees, Red Sox and Astro's in the playoffs, they need to spend more money to build up the talent on the roster. In addition, hire a bright young gun in that general manager position who can wheel and deal with teams with undiscovered talent. The Billy Ball days brought no championships and are way over.

Re: “Fremont Withholds Records of Fatal Police Shooting of Pregnant Teenager, Despite New Transparency Laws

This article clearly states that it is being withheld pending a federal lawsuit brought on by the family. Once all lawsuits are over, the records can be released (per the norm). Once again EBX is putting the cart before the horse and expecting (quite accurately based upon the public comments) for their readers to jump to conclusions based upon their own bias instead of reading the article themselves.

It's a real bummer. I love the Express. Hope everything turns out ok for everyone involved, although a bunch of the stuff Buel did recently bothered me.

Re: “State Threatens Viability of East Bay Green Energy Program

If you want to push solar, legislate that PG&E etc. must take and distribute solar-produced electricity. Why set up a layer of "choice" agencies? EBCE did not address this basic question in the information it sent us; it just enrolled us without asking.

Re: “The Express Lays Off Six Employees, But the Paper Continues On

If it was another employer that had illegally denied overtime pay (as ruled in a court case), we would have readers climbing all over that employer disparaging the fact that it was taking unfair advantage of the workforce. "The man"

And, the reporters for this publication would be writing articles showing us just how terribly that employer is acting with lots of coverage of the plight of the disadvantaged employee.

But, with this employer, the droves are looking the other way, the article is "oh poor me (employer)" and the employer is looking for another legal angle. Go figure.

Yeah, I guess sometimes it is hard to let go of same side bias.

I agree having greater transparency in this case will help. What do the police want to hide ?

Re: “Can Building Housing Lower Rents?

"You can't compare the two cities. Don't forget about rent control which changes everything. Building more only invites more people to move to one of the most popular cities in the world. The prices will never go down, only up."

And that is why Japan's population has been steadily in decline for many years.. because of the building. LOL.

Re: “The Express Lays Off Six Employees, But the Paper Continues On

Gammon understands news. A couple of the laid-off staff are opinionators who masquerade as journalists. There is a lot to report in Oakland and the east Bay, and we look forward to reading the Express for news.

Re: “The Express Lays Off Six Employees, But the Paper Continues On

EBX frames the complexity, wonder, worries, and liberties that we enjoy by simple virtue of living in the East Bay. We look into that frame and we see ourselves staring back. We take for granted the publication's continuing existence at our peril.
