Re: “Updated: Buffy Wicks Defeats Jovanka Beckles in AD 15

Thanks to buffywicksisachildofthecorn for a great summary of the East Bay body politic. I'm circulating. And I question any celebration or congrats given that $3.7 million was spent on this race with Buffy outspending Jovanka by 4 to 1.

This is way too early to call despite Buffy Wicks's wide opening margin. More ballots were cast than have yet been counted. They include early votes, absentee ballots, and provisional ballots.

There are far more ballots to be counted than have been counted, so this is way too early to call.

Re: “Breaking: Berkeley's KPFA Radio Facing Ruin as New York Real Estate Corporation Considers Seizing Station's Assets to Settle Lawsuit

"KPFA's property" is actually Pacifica's on MLK Way in Berkeley. Empire State could put a lien on it establishing their interest upon sale but they could not "seize the building" or force KPFA staff to quit. Nor could they seize KPFA's broadcast license or others in the network. They could seize KPFA's cash assets, which would make KPFA's utility bills and other basics the biggest challenge to keeping KPFA on the air.

And this is not "this financial mess created by its parent foundation." KPFA representatives served on the national board as this crisis developed and not all of their votes were benign. On the contrary.

Re: “Dems Try to Rescue Jerry Brown

I can't say I care, knowing who Jerry Brown is. Laura Wells, http://www.laurawells.org/, or Deacon Alexander, http://www.newmenu.org/deaconalexander.

Re: “PG&E Funds Anti-Green Measure

This is awful. I didn't know the vote was in June. Thanks for coverage.

Re: “KPFA Elections Mark Station's Latest Turmoil

Under current management KPFA is close to becoming an anachronism because it's Web presence is negligible and rapidly becoming more so.

This is not trivial to those of us who depend on the otherwise little heard voices that KPFA puts on the air.
