Re: “Alameda County Supervisors to Reconsider Banning Some Rodeo Events

RE the potholes. I ride all over Oakland; the side roads in the hills are way bad. They're often worse than what I've seen in the flats. Check out Escher Drive, for instance. And, no, I don't live in the hills.

Re: “State Threatens Viability of East Bay Green Energy Program

Ditto what Al Weinrub said: "How to determine PCIA fees is all arbitrary, and the question is whether you're going to be arbitrary on the side of our communities or arbitrary on the side of the monopoly utilities."

Re: “A’s Swing for the Fences at Howard Terminal

What he said.

The transportation issues alone are likely overwhelming. Put the money into the Coliseum site, both sides of the freeway.

Re: “OPD Cop Caught Making Apparent False Statements After Injury Crash

Now we can see how the OPD gets away with so much crap--many Oaklanders defend them no matter what. Of course, this cop-love isn't unique to our city. It's ubiquitous. Probably related to widespread Stockholm syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder. A lot more people need to be in therapy.

Re: “The Forces Driving Gentrification in Oakland

Zachary Murray wants to bring the community into the conversation. That's good, although many Oakland neighborhoods are already well represented. But why does he worry that only black neighborhoods need to be "brought into the conversation"? Aren't Asians and Latins worth listening to? And refugees from the Middle East? Don't they have critical housing needs as well?

The Express seems caught up in the racial disparities of the 60s. Your writers are trying to bring back black residents when they should be more attentive to the other people of color who live here now.

Re: “La Marcha Team to Open Alcalá in Montclair Village

A non-review of a restaurat that doesn't exist. What a tremendous service to your readers!

Re: “Oakland Failed to Spend $2.2 Million on Anti-Displacement and Homeless Assistance

A little reality is in order here. First, the money wasn't spent, so at least the worst didn't happen--spending it on something else. Second, losing two managers and four upper-level administrative staff in a single department is a big deal. It's bound to hurt the department's ability to fulfill its mission. It doesn't let the director or the council off the hook, but it doesn't earn them such contempt.
