Re: “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

The director, Michael French, is on the COVER of the latest EB Express Arts Preview Edition without explanation... but come and see what he has made of this brilliant, intelligent, and funny exploration of The World's Worst Sinner. Witnesses called to the stand include Mother Theresa, Caiaphas, Sigmund Freud and Satan himself, with appearances by a filthy-mouthed St. Monica, "Mary Mags," some Apostles, and Jesus himself. Amazing performances in an exciting little black box — Oakland's first dedicated theater space! Downtown where Broadway and Telegraph meet, about a block from the Fox.

Re: “Oakland City Council Passes Divisive Proposal to Establish Violence Prevention Department

The comments here explain why such a common-sense move would seem "divisive." Shame, judgement and fear of minorities "taking" from middle-class whites drives the cycle of hatred. An ounce of prevention is worth a (at least) pound of cure, and not enough has been done to build the safety net of girls who are being sucked into sexual slavery or boys who are vulnerable to the peer pressures of violence. Coordinated and sustained efforts are needed to create safety for all. I have high hopes for this project and applaud the city council and the people. We can change the dynamics of bullying.

Re: “Jack London Square to Get Bowling Alley, Beer Garden in New Entertainment Complex

Actually, that's a fun plan to bring this space alive again. I do miss the literary aspect, though!

Can we get an Old Spaghetti Factory in there somewhere?

Margaret Cho as Mayor, yes!

Samuel L. Jackson as Jordan.
