Re: “JR Valrey Is an Agent Provocateur

So, I'm reading the paper edition of the EBE. On one page is an article detailing how empty the Uptown apartment complex is, despite its amenities; seems the location in downtown Oakland has been a turn-off to potential renters, who must be holding the same widespread perception of Oakland as corrupt, lawless, and unfriendly to non-thugs as every other business and householder who has passed up our town.

And on the other page opposite this dreary story is a profile of some clown who runs his mouth on local radio, spouting a lot of stale Sixties jingles, doing big fat nothing for the most oppressed people in the black community, who are the women and children held hostage in their dwellings by the violence committed by a bunch of strutting machos ("political organizers?!" When did the EBE become _The Onion_?).

Poor old Oakland.
