Re: “Coming Home: My Love-Hate Relationship With the Bay Area

This is really a beautiful, thoughtful, and observant essay.
My only quibble is that "city" in the quote from Danny Glover should be capitalized. In the Bay Area, San Francisco is "The City".

Re: “Kamala Harris, For Which People?

Mr. White: you can share your negativity about Kamala Harris, but your final salvo about them all being "crooked as hell" undermines any specific complaint you were trying to attach to her. Further, your "affirmative action boost" comment sounds racist, and undermines any credibility you may have been able to salvage.

Re: “Can Oakland's Soda Tax Fund a Healthier Town?

Mr. Raphael is dead wrong. The nutritional science underlying the soda tax concept is strong.

Its reasonable to point to the sugar content of fruit juices, but the vast majority of advertising, market-push, and consumption belongs to soda, and thus its an appropriate target for health-focused policy.

As for Dr. Lustig, of UCSF, upon visiting his website (https://robertlustig.com/food-insecurity/ ), it is plain that he understands the science and politics of the topic very well, and that he, in fact, fully supports the soda tax concept.
