Re: “Update: How Hasta Muerte Coffee Successfully Secured Its Building

TS Edison, you don't seem to have a grasp of what gentrification means. Here's a hint: there were coffee shops all over San Francisco long before the housing crisis started - including the oh-so-trendy Mission District.

Re: “Big Crime Bust in Oakland Is Welcome, But Will It Have a Lasting Effect?

I know that there was a huge drop in crime in my neighborhood in West Oakland after the multi-city Acorn gang bust during the much-maligned Mayor Dellums term. Without even checking the statistics I knew things had changed because there was suddenly so much less gunfire to be heard at night. So I'm hopeful this will have the same effect.

Re: “READER CONTEST: Help Robert Gammon Find a New Life's Mission

I think Gammon's next mission is clear: A thorough investigation and background check of Chip Johnson. Why is he so unthinkingly obsequious to the corrupt East Bay political machine? Did he REALLY think Ron Dellums was supposed be out personally patrolling the streets of Oakland at night fighting crime? Is he allergic to the air at Oakland City Hall or something? How could he devote some many column inches to shilling for Perata without ever actually explaining why he'd be a good mayor, let alone why he wasn't a crook?

Yeah, yeah, you can just say the Chip writes what he writes because the Chron pays him to, but that just raises another question: when, why, and how did he decide to sell out so absolutely?
