Re: “Parking Rebellion Stirs Up Oakland

A challenge to Mr. Michaan of the Grand Lake Theatre. A real leader does not post signs like the one on the Grand Lake right now which says the parking increase is an "extortion racket." That shrill, rabble-rousing, zero-sum, chicken-charlie, demagogery belongs to Palin, Rove'and Limbaugh's Republican America, not Obama's America which includes Oakland. Instead of sloganeering and attacking your fellow citizens, I challenge you to stick your neck out and identify the exact cuts you would make in the City's budget in exchange for repealing the new parking rules. Then post those cuts on the Grand Lake Theatre. I also challenge you to explain why, two yoga businesses on either side of the Grand Lake Theatre continue to be packed, based on my direct observation. I also challenge you to quantify how many others - including myself - have stopped coming to your Theatre because of your Republican tactics, rather than the parking increase. I challenge you to explain why in this economic crisis, you should continue to receive the free parking under the over pass. Finally, I do thank you for providing the City Council's number to complain to; I called it to support them and reasoned debate since the "extortion racket" was the last straw for me.
