Re: “Ike's Place Finally Opens in Santa Rosa!

Why is Elvis Kieth his high school nickname?

Re: “Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

The paper will survive, Gabe. And we all hope you will, too. But we definitely will miss your editorial savvy, your journalistic skills, your damn-fine writing. Be well, keep writing (occasionally), and slow down. Santa Rosa needs folks like you!

Re: “Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

You're a inspiration, Gabe. I'm sorry I couldn't think of anything more literary to say, but that's the plain truth. May your future life be filled with happiness :)

Re: “Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

Oh, no! I am genuinely bummed out upon reading the news that both Gabe and Leilani will be stepping down from their respective positions as Editor and Assistant to the Editor of the North Bay Bohemian. In a day and age when the dull saber of mainstream journalism no longer cuts it for many of us who require more than mere cookie-cutter reporting and bland journalistic pablum, the two of you were definitely bright spots on the newspaper horizon. I can tell you that I always looked forward each week with eager anticipation to see which controversial issues of the day you would report, write and comment on - and, I have to tell you, you never left me wanting. I also appreciate the fact that you have seen fit to not only print many of my letters, but the letters of many other community members as well, thus, giving us a voice on issues and matters which we hold near and dear. My heartfelt thanks for the high standard of journalistic integrity which you are both leaving behind as you pursue your personal paths and your future endeavors. Thank you.

Re: “Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

I second Andy's comments about the 24 Hour Band Contest! I did it in 2013 and it was SO MUCH fun. Please say you'll continue it Boho! Sad to see Gabe go, and hoping anew editor emerges soon!

Re: “Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

Our loss, Gabe, you and your family's gain--Bravo! I remember when you first started--as a cartoonist, right?--at the paper when it was called just that, The Paper. You were the tender age of about 18, I think. Jim and John have loved watching you blossom and mature. Best of luck to you.

Re: “Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

Although you may consider it one of your lesser achievements, the 24 Hour Band Contest is the coolest thing I have ever participated in during my time in Santa Rosa. I cannot fully relate, as a new resident, how much of an impact it had on my Sonoma County experience. Participating in that one night (July 14, 2012) exponentially expanded my circle of friends, musical and otherwise. There I met Deborah, our wonderful singer, who convinced me to attend California Brazil Camp that summer, during which I studied and jammed with percussion masters Mauricio Zottarelli and Airto Moreira. During the contest I was also befriended by random band mates Teed, the stick master, as well as Andy G., inventor of the Slaperoo, and of course Dan, a fine drummer in his own right. You couldn't have drawn a cooler (or weirder) mix from the hats.

Thanks for all you've done to foster the good vibes in this community. May your journalistic saber remain sharp and continue to shred through The Bullshit. See ya at the record store.

Re: “Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

May all the best new adventures involve you, Gabe and Leilani. I look forward to the Bohemian each week, both print and digital versions. You should be proud of what you've achieved. Only question is, who's going to take the helm?
Happy trails!

Re: “Hospital Fever

Sad but true, as a Kaiser patient , I have already taken the precaution of seeking medical help for my heart condition OUTSIDE of America . This because Kaiser would be perfectly happy to sell my pills the rest of my shortened life, instead of doing the heart ablation that will cure me. As a former Cos reduction Manager I perfectly understand the elimination of duplicate processes and redundant activities however cutting employees is short sited, which is what cutting beds at hospitals really is.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: January 22, 2014


Dear Editor: President Barack Obama defended the data sweep and said the American people should feel comfortable with its collection. On Friday, after seven months of increasingly uncomfortable revelations and growing public outcry, Mr. Obama gave a speech that was in large part an admission that he had been wrong.

Americans have really gotten paranoid about their security; they're fearful of any future terrorist attacks and willing to do anything to avoid them. It's provided a tremendous boost for "Big Brother." It's in his best interests that the nations invest billions in new surveillance technology and equipment, pass new laws and become more secretive, repressive and dictatorial.

Re: “Letters to the Editor: January 15, 2014

The West Bank is essentially imprisoned. Its one access to the outside world would be through Gaza—access through the sea, through the air, if there was an airport, and so on. By breaking Gaza from—separating Gaza from the West Bank, that undercuts whatever limited possibility there might be for a meaningful Palestinian self-determination.
these developments will continue.

Israel will keep the people in Gaza on a diet. We won’t let them starve to death; that won’t look good in the international world. We’ll just give them just enough to stay barely alive in this open-air prison. If you look at the history of South Africa, it was pretty similar. By 1960, the South Africans knew that they were becoming a pariah state. The U.S., along with Britain, was still vetoing and blocking resolutions which would call for any kind of sanctions, and supporting South African atrocities and crimes.

This is a kind of a replay of it. As long as the United States, the most powerful state in the world, continues to play its crucially supportive role, unfortunately, these developments will continue.

Re: “Generation Jobless

I wonder also about the demographic of those young people interviewed. Nationally, unemployment is lower among Whites than among African Americans/Hispanics, and the unemployment rates for the later are still in the double digits.

Well he could not approve the XL pipeline for starters.

I would like Bill to state actions Obama could take. Can he outlaw coal exports?
