Re: “Oakland Council Prez Wants June Cops Measure

Pensions have nothing to do with the city budget. Public safety for example pays more in Oakland than any other large bay-area city. Keep dreaming if you think that bankruptcy would help to do anything to public safety budgeting.

Re: “Riesling the German Way

If you honestly think that "real people drink sub-10 dollar wines" you shouldn't be writing a wine column. Wines that are in the under 10 dollar category have to be produced on such a huge scale to overcome the cost of packaging and importing, that 99.99% of the time they are barely representative of what a region, grape or even a winery can offer. Real people should drink wines that are worth the price that they paid for them. This is just reverse snobbery, in that insidious Chuck Franzia kind of way, i.e. "no wine should cost more than $5 to produce. Go to your local SMALL wine retailer, tell them your budget and what you want and I guarantee you that they can find you something amazing. When you go to bevmo, you are purchasing the Budwiser of the wine world, when you could get a "microbrew" for the same cost at your local shop.
