Tweet Follow me After a long day of a lot of research, help and great advice, I found and talked to my father. He’s at a rest home in Niles, Illinois and was working at the Walmart last year before this happened. He fell right on his head which may have triggered the problem. Anyway, I could not have done this without a little help and a lot of encouragement from a lot of people who sent e-mail and called. Thanks. What happened was that his number was not working, after I called and then that number was...

Tweet Follow me While eating with a friend who’s a local developer (and that’s all I’ll tell) I learned this Wednesday evening that a centerpiece of Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown’s so-called effort to revitalize what was once Oakland’s theater district is in trouble. The 400-unit “Uptown Housing Project” approved by the Oakland City Coucil last year and to be built on part of a 19-acre tract of land that was the focal point of a new baseball stadium for the Oakland Athletics,...

Tweet Follow me This is one of the best trades in the NFL’s 21st Century. Randy Moss has 90 Touchdowns and is a constant threat to catch the ball for a big play on every down. The Vikings made a massive mistake in letting him go…or did they? Perhaps, given that he’s a seven-year veteran and has been injured, the Vikings may feel that he’s seen his best years. I personally doubt it. I’ve always believed that Randy Moss was never placed in an offense that fully showcased his abilities....

Tweet Follow me I had to write this, or at least get it started, while it’s on my mind. Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown has failed his city. Jerry has used the City to bring attention only to himself, and has no real notable victories to crow about. I write this because the San Francisco Bay Area media gives him a free pass. For example, the San Francisco Chronicle had an extensive interview on him in the middle of last year. But it only focused on the issue of crime and how the rate of crime had decreased. I...

Tweet Follow me According to this CNN article Paris’ Hilton’s personal information, including cell phone numbers, was stolen and then posted on the web. My question is why? Why would I want to have the phone numbers of entertainers that don’t want to talk to me? This is — in my view — entirely different than the Associated Press reporter who managed to send out his phone numbers of every notable sports person in the World. If you’re a sports writer, that’s of value. Plus,...

Tweet Follow me Today, CNN’s Carol Lin said that Bloggers are less than credible. But actually Blogging is replacing investigative journalism, which has been removed from the mainstream media by the explaination of “budget cutting.” This started with CBS News President Van Gorton Sauter in 1981 and continues today. So, with information technology at our fingertips, more and more people can ask questions, research, interview, write, and report. That’s what journalists do, and that’s...

Tweet Follow me Hey, I was checking out the videos reporting the progress of the production of Lord of The Rings Director Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong and came away quite impressed with everything from the way they’re recreating the New York of the 1930s, to the development of an environment totally devoid of African English, African American, or just plain black folks. Before you — if you’re White (or black, but such is rare) and are about to scream “race card” please don’t...

Tweet Follow me Folks, a friend of mine sent this. You’ve got to read this and pass it on. There’s more to the story than was on Fox or CNN. Geez….sortid, too. This guy’s some kind of Gay escort, hiring out at $200 per hour ! I’m not making this up. Read carefully… Zennie Bush’s Barberini FaunBy MAUREEN DOWD Published: February 17, 2005http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/17/opinion/17dowd.html?hpWASHINGTON I am very impressed with James Guckert, a k a Jeff Gannon.How often...

Tweet Follow me My good friend Beth Schnitzer and her brothers, my friends Steve and Rayzin, were thoughtful enough to write down the events of their trip to Jacksonville for me, and trying to see it as a competiting Super Bowl Bid head (me) would have looked at it. Below is what Steve sent to me today, formatted cursorily to preserve his chatty writing style. But some notes, before you start: “Jayville,” is of course, Jacksonville. And they stayed on one of the cruise ships that were brought in to double...

Tweet Follow me HEY! I’m watching NFL Network as I work on the computer, and the Minnesota Vikings are being sold..To a BLACK MAN! Yeah! His name’s Reggie Fowler and he’s from Arizona! Real great. Let’s see what info the Internet has…Check this ESPN link I also found this from the AZReporter: Business interests: Owner of Chandler-based Spiral Inc., which has supplied non-food items to grocery stores. He owns manufacturing, aviation and real estate companies, plus a cattle ranch.Personal:...

Tweet Follow me Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending my fourth Fox SportsNet Bay Area Baseball Luncheon, held at Treature Island. For those of you not aware of the event, it’s considered the “kickoff” baseball season event for the media of the San Francisco Bay Area. The featured speaker was Bob DuPuy, who is the Chief Operating Officer of Major League Baseball and someone I wanted to meet to talk about SBS’s Oakland Baseball Simworld and ask him about how MLB deals with excessive...

Tweet Follow me Hey, will someone tell me why we have this rash of teachers bedding their students? I mean elementary school teachers, as I seriously doubt anyone really cares what professors and college students do. Well, OK. Maybe someone. But show me the last time someone was thrown in the slammer for that. What’s the deal here? Is it in the water, or has it been going on and only now noticed? Also, the women are not ugly ducklings, so forget that “They can’t get a man” idea. Plus,...

Tweet Follow me Ok, now that the Super Bowl is over, the question of the day is “Are the New England Patriots a dynasty.?” Well, if you hate that the team wins all the time and consistently root for their loss and demise, then yes. The New England Patriots are a dynasty. I give Head Coach Bill Belichek credit for keeping his players consistently hungry. It’s not like they’re the most talented team in the league; they have great players, but they are weak in areas like the defensive secondary....

Tweet Follow me I returned to Oakland on Friday but felt real guilty that I didn’t stay longer with my folks. I called my Stepfather’s brother and wife to really encourge them to fly down to Georgia. I think they have some issues around the perception of Georgia as racist (I think it’s not much different than the Bay Area, but the kind of racism here is more subtle but none the less visible…When one’s eyes are open) Anyway, to my surprise, they did fly there on Sunday. That made me...

Tweet Follow me I am as excited as anyone to see New York City build a new stadium for the Jets and the 2012 Olympics effort, but I think they’re dropping the political ball. They’re forcing a design on the people of New York, when they should have a public party and design competition. The time clock is clicking so to salvage this PR problem, they should just have a public party where people get to actually come up with changes to the stadium design. Yes, they’re going to have hecklers, but I...

Tweet Follow me After over four years, I finally got my chance to publically explain what really happened to our Super Bowl Bid. If you’re wondering what I mean read this column penned by the Oakland Tribune’s Monte Poole. ...

Tweet Follow me Last week, I learned that my Mom has Breast Cancer, and was due to go into the hospital on Monday of this week. So last week, I decided to cancel my Super Bowl trip and come here to Fayetteville, GA, to be with my Mom and Stepfather, who has been battling Prostate Cancer. My Mom’s upset that I didn’t attend what was to be my 4th Super Bowl, but I’ll tell ya I feel a lot better being here than worrying. Besides, the 2005 Super Bowl should be in Oakland, not Jacksonville. ...

Tweet Follow me This story is unfortunate. I don’t blame her though. I hope the LA County Sherriff’s Office has better things to do and drops the charges…read on: January 22, 2005 (Associated Press)— Paris Hilton is being investigated for suspicion of petty theft, authorities said. “There was an incident, and she is alleged to have taken something,” sheriff’s Deputy Steve Suzuki said without disclosing further details. Calls to Hilton’s publicist, Gina Hoffman, were...
