This Is an Outrage:
Regular Meeting of the Alameda City Council, January 20, 2009

Editor's Comments:

The Alameda Daily Noose and I don't much care for Council meetings, but this one didn't seem nearly as horrible as usual. Call us crazy, but it was almost as if the mayor were a completely different person.

So Many Things to Get Annoyed About:
Regular Meeting of the Planning Board, January 12, 2009

Editor's Comments:

The only redeeming value of this video comes at the 34-minute mark. None of the rest makes any sense whatsoever…nothing but bureaucratic gobbledygook and sanctimonious lectures from so-called planners.

Nothing Worth Complaining About:
Regular Transportation Commission, January 14, 2009

Editor's Comments:

The Alameda Daily Noose and I have watched the entire five-hour video of the January 14 Traffic Committee meeting three times now, and we are simply astounded at the utter and complete lack of things to complain about. We realize that some crazy people might consider boats to be some kind of third-rate form of transportation, but showing five straight hours of nautical pictures hardly seems like a worthy use of taxpayer dollars in these troubled times. The sooner we scuttle this wasteful Transit Board, the better.
