Re: “What East Bay Trivia Nights Say About Our Collective Knowledge (or Lack Thereof) of Non-White History and Culture

This article brings up an interesting issue: what should the questions actually reflect? Should it be the demographics of the USA? Of Oakland? Of the people at the particular bar?

Re: “The Wolf in Oakland Modernizes a Cal-Cuisine Legend

Thanks for another well-written review. Would it be possible to add a sentence describing the noise level? I frequently go to restaurants with my parents, who are a bit hard of hearing, and it can be difficult to find a spot where we can easily converse. Thanks.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

As noted by previous poster, this headline is misleading at best. You weren't kicked out; you chose to leave.

This is a good article and you are shedding light on an important topic, but please refrain from such hyperbole.

Re: “Were Oakland Police's Tactics Against Anti-Trump Protesters 'Excessive'?

It sounds to me that OPD did a good job. No violent force was used on either side and no vandalism occurred. Given Oakland's history of night-time marches and what happened on inauguration day in other cities, this sounds like a positive result.

I don't believe that "clamping down on the movement of the march" equates to preventing freedom of assembly or speech. A couple hundred people gathered in front of city hall and then marched through Chinatown and Downtown. It might not have lasted as long as the protestors wanted, or covered the distance that they wanted, but they were still allowed to express themselves.

Re: “A Look at Who is Financing Oakland City Council Candidates

It would be helpful to have a map (or a link to a map) of the geographical boundaries for each city council seat. Thanks.

Re: “'Big Soda' Is Suing Oakland Over Beverage Tax Measure

Impressive chutzpah by the Soda Industry. Despite re-branding the soda tax as a "grocery tax," Big Soda are the ones suing over "patently false" language.
