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: “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.

Re: “Hospital Fever

It is refreshing to hear the voices of RNs, the actual caregivers who work at the bedside and see first-hand the impact of the decisions of those working in the corner office. Health care services are shrinking, and privatizing, and becoming more expensive and exclusive, even in the face of Obamacare. Hopefully for the rest of us, Nurses like these will lead the way to a place where health care is a human right. Go Nurses!

Re: “My Son's Ashes

Thank you to the Bohemian for the continuing coverage on this story. I pray to God that Andy Lopez's family would get the attention their story deserves.The other local news media outlets coverage of this story are neither informative or noteworthy with only a few seconds of their airtime. Please continue to have coverage of any upcoming events in Andy's honor.
Thank you again.

Re: “After the Verdict

As a friend of Mark's, I think there are other circumstances that came to play in this terrible tragedy. There was clear and irrefutable evidence that there was drug use involved with Houston, the son. It was never well established during the trial that Houston was free of the amphetamines that he had been using, or whether or not he was experiencing withdrawals.

At this point,those factors are no doubt irrelevant. But, they are worth noting to those of us who stood on the sidelines and suffered the loss of Mark's friendship and his wonderful music. God rest you Mark --- we mourn your loss, but celebrate your life and the joy you brought to so many of us.

Re: “Culture of Guns

could we have more information about the Defense Department study and your apparent claim that the government has worked or is working to make us all more likely to kill somebody in combat? I like a lot of what you say but that paragraph seems like it could use some references.

Re: “Monkeywrenching the Data Mines

This idea might actually work. I'm nervous that if I like everything my pages will be full of stuff I don't like, like Michelle Bachmann. But I can see how snoops and commercial profiling would fail if I feed the beast way too much. If we all do it in a short period of time..... Ya never know. It might back up like a cybernetic sewer.

Re: “Self-Checkout Blues

I like self-checkout and the newly redesigned Novato library entrance, with the new books right at the front. They've even removed the anti-theft sensors, so the whole process is very friendly -- like they trust you and they aren't too worried about people stealing information :-)

Sure, the 21st century takes some getting used to. But Kate should get a dog if she wants a friend. Librarians are too valuable to waste checking out books. They are available and happy to help, based on my recent visit.

Let's get real: there is not an infinite amount of money available for libraries, so automation is a good thing. And the Novato library is a beautiful place right next to a park and a bakery, so be happy, eh?
