Re: “Tuesday's Briefing: Oakland's rate of homelessness is skyrocketing; Shooting shuts down a portion of Interstate 880

"Of course the number of homeless in Oakland has skyrocketed... It's tolerated excused here"

Not at all a credible statement. Simply hateful spew from a reactionary.

On the other hand, the reactionary can provide a factual comparison between Bay Area cities with some specific numbers on exactly how "tolerated and excused" the poor are...

Re: “That Old Gas Stove Is Not Your Friend

Also, I think the city of Berkeley should look into the feasibility of banning the release of intestinal gas. Perhaps a bond issue could be floated to provide public dispensaries for Bean-O or similar products.

It's worth looking into!

Re: “That Old Gas Stove Is Not Your Friend

I dunno, but I like cooking with gas. Makes better food for reasons known only to those who actually cook I guess. Readers of this rag must dine out or order in a lot. Judging from the content and ads.

Why not ban SUVs? Going to much smaller cars and bicycles makes more sense to me than messing with the environmental damage caused by my woking and baking.

Re: “Fires, Refugees, Traffic, Gentrification ... So Why Isn't Anyone Talking About Population?

"Until there is sufficient resource to "teraform" that emptiness into something people can easily inhabit..."

Heh. Writer doesn't understand the word "terraform" nor does he know how to spell it.

Worse, obtaining the "sufficient resource" for changing "that emptiness" into his favorite urban environment would mean yet more environmental destruction.

No wonder the average reader simply has no understanding of environmental processes and problems.

Re: “Berkeley and the Road Not Taken

Good coverage of an important topic, especially given that some local folks are gradually become aware of the problems of carbon-based transportation and climate disruption.

Sad thing is that this kind of effort is 30 years behind what European cities and towns have been doing.

Late better than never one can hope.

Re: “Two Japonist Artists

"Seriously affordable." Now that's a new phrase for me.

Re: “Monday's Briefing: Kaplan's budget proposal includes cutting Department of Transportation

No transpo department and more psilocybin make for a fabulous future for Oakland's public streets.
