Re: “Vote Kalb or Wicks for Assembly District 15

How unfortunate that someone with such a loaded name as 'Buffy' chooses to run in this district! 'Buffy' suggests Junior League charity work while Hubby is off buying and selling the world. And, her being blonde is a real help so, sorry Barack, NIMSD..

Re: “You're Not a Progressive If You're Also a NIMBY

Didn't invite the developers and profiteering clients, I see. The party line here seems to be 'Build Big and Build For Profit, Near Transit Corridors', not 'Build For Need', even if the 'Build Big and Near' becomes an acceptable tradeoff.

Re: “Fans Exploring Legal Options to Keep Raiders in Oakland

Davis pere et fils are sociopaths. Al split once, Oakland and County wet themselves to get back the team, and now Junior is fixing to blow again. Say, was Al here the first time around when he made the Irwindale threat, or in L.A.?
The team--'ray for the team!--and the coach (fired or present) should stay, where they're loved (if you can do that with pirates), but Mark should go--to 'Vegas, or be a Trump stand-in..

Re: “Berkeley To Consider Banning Plastic Straws

The magic of straws went when they started to paper-wrap them so snuggly that we couldn't blow the wrapper across the room.
The greater issue, of course, is plastic wrapping and packaging..of all kinds. Those who recycle can see clearly just how much this fossil-based wonder adds to the trash (or, IS the trash).

Re: “Letters of the Week: March 14 Issue

About this 'Wall' business, and the illegals it is supposed to keep out: Sweep it aside for a moment and riddle me this--Why is there NEVER a discussion about what is required to become a LEGAL immigrant? What do these wretches have to do that they haven't or won't,.. present a fortune in fees, fill out forms in legible English, grease the right consular/embassy palms (as if..), and wait, and wait, and wait, like in 'Casablanca'? This aspect really should be admitted as evidence.. for the source of the problem. Well, one source, the other being US' Monrovian foreign policy..
