Angels in America was and is a wonderful and compelling film, and I got to see Mormon magical underwear!

Re: “Tuesday's Briefing: Oakland Unified cuts budget by $22 million; California Supreme Court rules on pensions

The cuts in Oakland have only started. There are many schools that need to be closed, and the agreement just postponed that for five months.

Re: “Thursday's Briefing: PG&E faces more trouble; Oakland has $43 million budget shortfall

Apparently the author doesn't even know that Oakland's debt ( which drives budgets directly) is dire and huge, and still growing. We are borrowing money to pay pensions and have yet to even pay off the ancient "Police and Fireman's Pension Fund", a millstone around the neck of the city. Oakland is operating on borrowed time, and the clock is ticking.

Re: “Oakland Schools Go Back to the Future With Vo-Tech

This is great news, the best I have heard from OUSD in decades. I would also like to see "Home Economics" brought back, and a mandatory class for all boys and girls. It would be a positive force in shattering gender lines that relegate women to menial work, and teach boys valuable skills.

And all of the kids would benefit from learning to balance a checkbook, a skill that is not even taught in high school.

Re: “Thursday’s Briefing: Oakland Schools May Lay Off 150; Housing Crisis Causes Displacement to Exurbs

Finally. The OUSD is a mess. Close half the schools and it will be less of one.

Re: “The Path of Breast Cancer

Let's get something clear. Alternative medicine for cancer is how you die. Conventional medicine might save your life. Avoid these quacks to save your life.
