Re: “Monday’s Briefing: Oakland Gets 255 Legal Pot Permit Applications; Another State Legislator Accused of Sexual Harassment

Back in the day, many decades ago, when it was cool to be a stoner (especially as opposed to an alky), no one could even have hallucinated that pot would become a mainstream economic sector.

Personally I still think it's an hallucination, but I haven't had a toke yet today.

Re: “The Return of the Crematorium

Hey EM, if you are going to co opt my comments about the General Plan and Zoning being the problem in an article you wrote to the Tribune, next time at least give me some credit in a footnote. It is what writers with integrity and not a political agenda do. Also, if you want to play the race card as your main offensive weapon, at least be historically correct. In the case of West Oakland, in the early 20th century, most of the residential populations around industry were Italian, Portuguese and Irish. Blacks did not make the great migration to Oakland from the south until the 1940's and 50's. Similarly, in East Oakland, many industrial land uses predated the construction of residential neighborhoods that came later and ultimately served that same migratory population. Just because Black people are there now does not always mean that these uses were placed there because Blacks lived nearby. Not that there are never cases where that is a factor. But just as historically correct is that these uses chose locations because of economic factors like proximity to the Port as well as convenient rail and truck transportation.

Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

Yeah. I put this all on the venues.
No matter the genre, all parties can fail. The venues should take 2-3 chances on every party. New parties should start monthly on a weeknight, and if they are successful, either be offered a weekend monthly or take their party elsewhere.

Some parties may need more than 2-3 tries to get off the ground. Word of mouth still works. And venues should know which parties will need more than 2-3 tries to marinate into something that will last.

If you're a Latinx DJ or promoter, please, please keep trying. Last year, last month, last week might not have been the time for your party to jump off. But this month, or next, it could be CRACKIN'.
