Re: “Cosby Conundrum

don't buy a ticket that is the best way to shut down the event. the venue is in the market to make money not loose it. If any one can not fill the house no one will produce him the term boycott comes to mind and if you really want the show gone boycott all shows at the venue and see how fast things change.

The petition on Change.org is called "Don't give Bill Cosby a voice, cancel the show". Here is the link http://www.change.org/p/kyle-clausen-cancel-bill-cosby-s-performance-in-june

Re: “Cosby Conundrum

Thank you for writing this article. A friend of mine has gathered over 3700 signatures for a petition to stop Cosby's appearance. The list is growing and this is one show that should NOT go on.

Re: “Hotel Sebastopol?

I personally feel a bit boons-waggled by the Barlow. The majority of the offerings are booze related. I was under the impression it was to be more of a mixed craftsmen "tour, sample and learn" area.

Re: “Game Over

There's a reason why foie gras production has been outlawed in more than a dozen countries: It's an abomination. Anyone who cares about animals should leave foie gras off their plate.

Re: “Game Over

Investigations of foie gras farms have revealed ducks dying because their organs ruptured from overfeeding and birds suffering from kidney necrosis, spleen damage, bruised and broken bills, and tumor-like lumps in their throats. And of course, the birds must be slaughtered for foie gras, so unless they are going cheerfully and willingly to their deaths, there is no way it can be considered anything but cruel.

Re: “Game Over

If foie gras was "natural", it would just be called foie. The gras comes from overfeeding them until their livers become diseased and swell to up to 10 times the normal size, which is categorically cruel.

Re: “Twelve Days of Debriefer

It's nice to see the Bohemian is finally doing police logs.

Re: “Twelve Days of Debriefer

There's nothing unbeautiful about any body on the face of this planet. God made those bodies, therefore there’s nothing ugly underneath your clothing. If you're looking to ease your way into the nudist lifestyle, nudist resorts , nudist beaches and nudist dating site (Google localnudistsingle com) are available that offer a slightly less adventurous experience.

Re: “Teachable Moment

Wall Street vs CA schools budget. Confused by the comparison. The governor has a $6B surplus, march in Sac first. Stop focusing on observers and start negotiating the salaries since the contract isn't even up yet. You'd get 2.5% now and likely another 2.5% in June if you'd get to the table. You're harming yourselves over principle (right or wrong).

Re: “Light Fantastic

Hi There,

Great to see this story in the Bohemian. Last month I attended the memorial for my uncle, J. Woodland Hastings, a marine biochemist who dedicated his entire life to the study of these amazing critters. Uncle Woody died in August.

Anyway, you can read more about his life's work, some of which formed the basis for some of the practical applications of his discoveries mentioned in the story. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/10/science/j-w-hastings-87-a-pioneer-in-bioluminescence-research-dies.html?_r=2

And the book he co-authored about bioluminescence, published in 2013, is available at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Bioluminescence-Living-Lights/dp/0674067169
It is somewhat technical here and there but mostly a very fun read for those interested in bioluminescence.

-Woody Hastings, Sebastopol

Re: “Debriefer: October 22, 2014

asset forfeiture purposes."as they say is just another way for law officers to take what you have and keep it even with no charges being laid. This his happening to more & more people and a stop should be made to it. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Re: “A Nation 'Adrift'

If there ever was a group that threatens civilization as we appreciate it, ISIS is it. I respect Rep. Huffman, but he offers no option other than the quasi philosophical muttering to "rethink the paradigm", whatever that's supposed to mean.

Re: “News Blast

Never has a mission of love been so heart-felt than for United Africa Club founder Okili Nguebari, who has not visited his homeland and small village in the tropical rainforests of Peoples Republic of Congo for 25 years. The baby of 22 siblings, Okili yearns to visit his remaining family there. Funds will be raised for a long awaited reunion with his kin over seas; an African themed dinner - dance, sponsored by The United Africa Club, 501c3, non-profit Org., will be held Friday, Nov. 7 @ The Sebastopol Community Center. Okili’s been unable to travel Africa due to Red Tape with Immigration Naturalization Services (INS) that began more than 30 years ago.
It's been four years since Okili’s last big celebration which was related to his immigration troubles. In the spirit of past UAC events, which became popular, the 1990’s through the Millennium, via yearly African Music Festivals, the upcoming soirée features African drumming through the night; headlined by three bands: Danjuma & Onola (Afro-Beat), Midnight Sun Massive (Caribbean), Rising Signs (Reggae world fusion), & Guests TBA.
Why should anyone care? Because Five years ago heightened publicity of Okili’s Immigration status attracted statewide Media and the assistance of Congressman Mike Thompson when he’d been seized in front of his Santa Rosa home by six ICE Agents, and taken to a remote, privately owned, immigration detention facility in Arizona. Known in the community as a man of heart who hosted fabulous African Events for two decades in Sonoma County, help came from those whose hearts he’d touched, and funds were raised at three Music events at the Sebastopol Community Center. Those funds helped pay attorneys and remove him from detention after three long months. Success was reached via an Amnesty Class Action Law suit and thanks to the help of Atty. Ms. Florence Ndedi, resulted in a Permanent Immigrant Resident Visa after 30 years of insecurity with INS. Today his application for actual Citizenship is in the process.
Okili is known for his giving and loving nature, his belief in helping others, and simply sharing of himself, which always includes good African food. In 1981 Okili came to the US to learn English and improve his Electronic skills. Little did he know he’d build a life, raise a family, and in 1998, found the United Africa Club, which calls for African Countries to be united, to showcase Africa’s positive contributions in the world, and nurture cultural / learning exchanges between Africans & Americans. One UAC mission statement is to promote the beauty of African Arts and Culture; over the years, Okili and the UAC have brought big name African Music Stars to Sonoma County, such as Pepe Kalle, Sally Nyolo, Samba Ngo, etc
The intention: Funds to be raised to bring himself and his wife and grown children who have never been to Africa. A goal of $25,000 is needed to send the family abroad – a minimum $6000 for Okili alone. There’ll be a silent Auction, and additional donations gracefully accepted. A luscious African Dinner kicks-off the evening included in Ticket price; Beer & Wine available. Doors 6:PM. - $15 advance via Brown-paper Tix - $20 @ door. Location: Sebastopol Community Cultural Center, 390 Morris St., Sebastopol, CA 95472. Info: 707-544-3524 - okili@sonic.net

Re: “Making a Splash

Hard to say as they are on the move. Try a local whale watching tour outfit to find out.
