Re: “Fruitvale the New Hipster Hangout?

I am frustrated by the number of people who commented as if there are no "white people" living in the Fruitvale. I live in the Fruitvale. I am white. So are my wife and kids and quite a few of our neighbors. There are also blacks, latinos, Mien, . . . There are also gays and lesbians in the neighborhood; old people and young people. People doing urban gardening, and people paving over their entire yards, The diversity of the fruitvale is what makes it great. The gangs and crime are what makes it less than great. I suspect that the "hipsters" don't stay around at night because most buisinesses close at dark. It is a very working class neighborhood.

Re: “Will Oakland Become a No-Festival Zone?

Undressing the anecdotal evidence that calling a councilperson can reduce fees. How can that happen when councilmemebers are prohibited from directing staff directly? I do not deny that Oakland's various fees are out of line with other local municipalities. I just think your article illustrates another more serious Oakland problem.
