Re: “Updated: John Knox White and Tony Daysog Win Alameda Council Race

PRESS RELEASE
Early Morning 11/7/2018

"I am deeply honored and humbled by Alameda voters' decision to allow me to return to City Hall. With their decision tonight, Alamedans have entrusted me with the keys to City Hall. I will be forever mindful of my duty to show residents that I am worthy of the trust bestowed on me tonight by voters.

"So I pledge to do my part in promoting a City Hall that is open, transparent, accountable to the People of Alameda, and, above all, fixated on solving our pressing problems of today and tomorrow.

"Tonight, Alamedans said 'yes' to my positive campaign about our future. And, in returning me to City Hall, Alamedans also said a resounding 'no' to the ugly, negative political mail we received recently. Thank you for allowing me to return to City Hall -- now it's time to roll-up our sleeves and get back to work."

Re: “Berkeley Reconsiders Controversial Twitter Tactic

Just curious: what is the etymology of the word "doxxing"? What other word is it referencing, and\or building off of? Without proper context, I can't tell if "doxxing" is good or if it is bad -- or both depending on the context. So, dear EBX editors: please keep in mind that there are 50+ y.o. readers like me who aren't up to speed on all these new phrases and terminologies that have come into use especially after November 2016. (Example: I'm still trying to figure out the curious use of the word "woke" especially via social media. Gramatically, it doesn't seem right: "I am 'woke'). Thank you!

Re: “Former Tribune Tower Owner Settles Fraud Case

Dear editor: this was very hard to read. Too many sprawling pieces.

Re: “Gruden’s Honeymoon Is Already Over

It's possible that Gruden let go Mack for the draft choices because he has a ten-year view of things that begins, first and foremost, by rebuilding the team the way **he** wants. You get several high drafts from the Mack decision, then, because the Oakland-based team is so-so to sub-par, you get decent draft for having consecutive 6 and 10 seasons in 2018 and 2019. So, maybe, Gruden asked himself, can I win one or two Super Bowls over the next ten years (say, in 2023 or 2025), and, if so, what does it take me to do that -- and then retire a happy camper in 2027? Looked at it this way, the GM and Gruden recent signings of so-so free agents who won't take you anywhere n-o-w makes sense, however diabolical. So, maybe Gruden is really planning for his time in Las Vegas and the fans and team in Oakland are just cannon fodder for that bigger picture Gruden has in mind.

Re: “Gruden’s Honeymoon Is Already Over

Any way you look at it, letting Khlalil Mack go made no sense. The most reasonable thing to have done -- had the impasse continued -- was to declare Mack a franchise player, making him play one (maybe even TWO) more years at the his current salary. Even if he played under that cloud this year, the Raiders could STILL have then traded him next year. So, pulling the trigger like the Raiders did NOW had no up-side to the team. Sorry, but the PALTRY drafts that the Raiders got from Chicago (yes, two #1 drafts **is** paltry) does not make up for the fact that Mack was and is a once-in-a-generation player.

Gruden's non-sensical Mack decision-making notwithstanding, there **is** sense to what he says about the GM's recent free agent hiring decisions. They've been absolutely terrible. The GM has been signing players who are ranked sub-par at the positions (ie defensive back signees) or are on the down-side of their careers. Jordy Nelcon? The guy is practically 40 years old!

Re: “Oakland's BayTech Charter School Violated Multiple State Laws

Wow . . in reading this from start to finish, I didn't see the last bit coming, i.e. the part about possible connections to someone interested in Turkish affairs. I mean this has "intrigue" at all possible levels, including international! To think, I thought this was just about paying $10 to attend a charter school graduation ceremony!
