Re: “A More Fitting Way to Honor Oscar Grant

Nobody is seriously talking about doing this. The people who are talking about it are not serious people, and should never be taken seriously. And no, BART is never naming a station after a famous lawsuit against them. Please. Maybe someone will sue them into doing it, but I don't think it would succeed.

Re: “The Express' New Commenting Policy

Trib/Mercury news don't have a facebook only policy. They use Oauth open id, which allows comments via several different services. You also fundamentally do not understand the purpose of it - one thing it isn't used for is elimination of anonymous comments. That policy is shifted to the individual services, such as yahoo,, aol. Among them only facebook demands user's real identities, and even then policing is lax. And you should go look who actually comments on the Trib using their real facebook, if you want to see how that elevates the discussion. Bona fide morons, nearly all of them, and pretty nasty as well.

The fact that you specifically forbid anonymous comments reveals you to be cowards and frauds, and terrified of critisism as only the truly mediocre and pretentious can be. I hope in the future you have the good sense to refrain from editorializing on privacy issues, or drone controversies, since you've outed yourselves as massive, smelly, sanctimonious leftier-than-thou hypocrites.

Re: “Alameda County DA: We Don't Want Oaklanders in Alameda

David Howard - but race baiting is so much easier than research and reportage! And actually, O'Mally's figures were on track for the year total. Don't know why she fluffed it in her speech, naming the wrong year for comparison, but she was essentially correct, and while I'm a fan of In-And-Out, every one of their stores that I've ever seen is swamped with traffic around the clock. I don't know what's in the immediate vicinity of the proposed location, but it's going to be very different there once this is in operation.

Carol Lee Maddox - Probably no one wants your 'poor me, I'm a victim' whiny ass around, and it has nothing to do with where you live.
