Re: “Bicyclists Get a Sharrow on Oakland’s 40th Street

I had a car get right on my backside when I was in the new lane and then he raced his engine and laid on his horn expecting me to get out of his way. More education for both riders and drivers is needed.

Re: “Fish Without a License on Independence Day

The little line that is added to this story that says, "can fish in any and all of the states freshwater lakes" changes the facts of the story. The fact is that you can fish in any place in California whether salt water or fresh water and lake or stream or whatever not just in fresh water lakes like the story implies. Here is the California Dept of Fish and Game link where this story was taken from except for the words about the "freshwater lakes": http://www.dfg.ca.gov/licensing/fishing/fr…

Re: “A Father's Quest

I do not want to comment on this case in particular because there just isn't enough information contained in the article. However, all parents have rights to be a part of their children's lives. Prostitutes can be perfectly good parents and so can bank robbers. If the state removed every child from areas with gunshots because it is dangerous for kids then there would be millions more children in foster care. Ideally in my opinion "family court" should be abolished and replaced with a non confrontational system where both parents have equal rights regardless of financial, employment, health or any other status currently used by the courts to dictate controls. As long as the parent isn't blatantly harming a child any parent deserves joint custody. If there is a perceived problem with one or both parents then there needs to be a timely method to correct the concern. Currently the crawling pace of "family court" allows the plaintiff to maintain custody for years at a time before a resolution is ordered. The children suffer the most under the current dysfunctional system. I know that this current system will never change because there are too many people including attorneys, judges and mediators making lots of money out of the disarray caused by this adversarial system. I can only dream of a better way I can't change this system. I was personally victimized twice by this system but my children suffered more than I did. Now as adults we can talk about it but what's done is done. Think long and hard before you enter this "system". Settle your problems out of court if you really love your children because all the children get hurt once "family court" gets involved Good luck.
