Life outside the island?


I've been surprised to see so much discussion about people who might think about leaving the island of Alameda. As a fouth generation Alamedan, I can tell you real Alamedans never even think about leaving the Island.

I've heard talk of "Bay Farm Island" some sort of imaginary "island" that I'm pretty sure doesn't exist. The dock at the end of Otis appears to connect to something, but I'm not clear on what it is.

That's the trouble with all these new people moving to town. They just don't have the necessary mindset to live here. They need to keep their mouths shut until they understand the special uniqueness of Alameda. Once they do, then they can join in civic discussions.
