Re: “Pieces of Oakland

Pieces of Oakland is a mashup of visual images and maps from the past and the present, and plans for the future. Love the true Vision that is the heart of this exhibit. Oakland is alive, a place with history and character, and can be found through this exhibit. It is easier to get to the next place if you know where you are starting. The future of Oakland I got from this exhibit is Hope.

Re: “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

The director, Michael French, is on the COVER of the latest EB Express Arts Preview Edition without explanation... but come and see what he has made of this brilliant, intelligent, and funny exploration of The World's Worst Sinner. Witnesses called to the stand include Mother Theresa, Caiaphas, Sigmund Freud and Satan himself, with appearances by a filthy-mouthed St. Monica, "Mary Mags," some Apostles, and Jesus himself. Amazing performances in an exciting little black box — Oakland's first dedicated theater space! Downtown where Broadway and Telegraph meet, about a block from the Fox.

Re: “Thank You for Making Dan Siegel a Best of the East Bay 2014 Winner!

Is there a typo in your award. Did you mean to say that Mr. Siegel is the most REgressive candidate?

Bringing armed police into OUSD in 2000 is not PROgressive, is it?

Touting Oakland Public Bank, yet using Wells Fargo for the campaign account is not PROgressive, is it?

Running a conventional campaign that compels him to lend (not donate) $100k to his fund in NOT PROgressive, is it?

Please forgive my unwavering determination to expose the dirt in our politics.

Re: “Thank You for Making Dan Siegel a Best of the East Bay 2014 Winner!

What we need in An Oakland Mayor is a fiscally responsible moderate . You hail Dan as your progressive poster boy but he's more then that. Being a leftist, I wouldn't vote for him for anything. Not all EBE are progressive and I find your publication biased

Re: “Laurel Street Fair

I have been the coordinator for 3 years now, after this review was written. Each year we have more and more people (8,000 people came last year alone). We have a great line up of entertainment on the stage, kid's carnival rides, a petting zoo, over 90 community and craft vendors and over 15 food vendors.

Bring the whole family - if you want to beat the crowds, come at the beginning, as it gets full of folks later in the afternoon. Personally, I think it is a wonderful, family oriented and neighborly fair.

Dear Dick and Jane, Thank you for the great performance last Saturday. I am always skeptical when I see acoustic instead of electric

and sometimes as we get older, performers mellow and tone down their performances. (Some call it their "mature" phase.) I see that time

and time again. Maybe I need to grow to appreciate that more but This was not the case with Dick and Jane. The powerful performance

evoked the anger and sparse nature of early punk rock/experimental genres. Linda and Dave are reunited to create the magic that they

did together 25 years ago when they played on the same bill as No Alternative at Gilman st. I look forward to seeing them again!
