Oakland Tribune’s Angela Woodall’s Wronghead View Of Downtown

Grrr. Oakland Tribune reporter Angela Woodall’s done it again: wrote another completely wrongheaded account of my Oakland. The first time it was a Twitter tweet that implied there was corruption at the Oakland Coliseum (she was correct), only to completely back away from the accusation when this blogger pointed to it. This time, the second […]

Oakland School Shooting: One L Goh “Cooperative”

UPDATE: There may be a question on if the photo is of One L Goh, which I got from a TV news broadcast. More later. The words “Oakland School Shooting” are still a shock to this blogger, because it just seems not right that Oakland should be impacted in that way. Yet, here we are, […]

Oakland Coliseum JPA Called Corrupt By Oakland Tribune Reporter
