Betsy Baker is right about the disturbing rise in un-Alamedan activities lately. I know that Besty mentioned there are certain parts of Alameda that are still strongly pro-Alamedan, but it's not necessarily a matter of geography. For example, on community college campuses, you find people who hate Alameda, and unfortunately some of these people have positions teaching in institutions of higher learning, but you'll find them in all walks of life, all throughout Alameda.
Most Alamedans, Rog, are wild about Alameda, but I'm very concerned that Roy Avery has Anti-Alamedan views. Scottish, Squirrely, and anti-Alamedan: that's a good descriptor for Roy Avery. It's obvious that he has the ear of many of our City leaders, and when Roy gets too close to anyone's ear with those Bagpipes of his, that person is likely to become deaf to all Right-Thinking arguments. The Alamedan Noose media should do a penetrating exposé and take a great look at the views of the people in City Hall and find out: are they pro-Alameda or anti-Alameda? I think people would love to see an exposé like that.
