Re: “The Munchies Kill

I’m not a medical professional but must comment on this opinion piece. His line of reasoning appears to be “Phytocannabinoids stimulate the vagus nerve causing compulsive consumption of confection”. At best, this is an oversimplification of a compulsive eating disorder; at worst, it is absolutely misleading. This much is correct: the vagus nerves are stimulated by a neuropeptide (ghrelin) produced in the GI tract when the stomach is empty. Specifically, this neuropeptide stimulates vagus nerve receptors, signaling the lateral hypothalamus, initiating appetite and increasing gastric acid secretions. Obviously, the individual’s response to this stimulative process varies and there are people less affected than others. Some people develop an over-sensitive response and have difficulty controlling their food consumption, whether they use cannabis or not. Medical “pot” is clearly not integral to the story and appears to be a red herring.

Re: “Old-Fashioned Love

Times sure have changed. The thing that bothers me most about the internet is that not many people are real. Angles, Photoshop, and editing can completely alter someone's looks.

Re: “Scalia Via Anagram

Friends and admirers of Scalia think you are a "maggot tool" and that you should eat some "mo' goat log". And by goat log, I mean goat shit.

Coming up with the most insulting anagram of a dead person's name sounds like a "moot goal, g."

Re: “Letters to the Editor: February 10, 2016

Dear Bohemian,
Thank you for last week's article on the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. The ongoing struggles and successes of the indigneous peoples of America are important and I'm hoping you'll consider making this type of coverage a monthly feature. A lot of Americans seem very concerned about the suffering of oppressed peoples on continents halfway across the globe... and yet these same passionate folks seem quite ignorant of the genocide and oppression that continue right here, today. Articles like the one you cared enough to publish can shine a beam of light on an area of American culture that cruelly stays hidden, far too often. My hope is that with more frequent coverage, we all can bring our awareness and compassion to those right here at home who have suffered for too long and help empower them to thrive again.

Re: “Pesticide Use in Sonoma County

"PAN wants the DPR...to create an easily accessible Internet database on the use of particular pesticides on particular pieces of land, so you'd know exactly what is being applied in your neighborhood."

Has this happened? If so, how can one access it?

Re: “Old-Fashioned Love

Older, Classic Mercedes Roadster. Good power under the hood. Engine runs smooth with occaisonal backfires. Paint older, chipped in a few areas, interior faded a bit, white walls, service history included, well maintained for an older 1951 model. Enjoys short fast drives having just returned from a long tour. Looking for a warm cozy garage to park in overnight, maybe longer.

Re: “SBA loans for California crabbers as feds declare Dungeness season a disaster

Loans won't help those that are already having trouble paying their bills it will only add more debt to the list. A disaster declaration is the only thing that would help at this point.

Oh..I wistfully hope that after losing my mate to cancer almost 5 years ago and being suddenly ready to move forward, that I should someday find someone like the happy couple, who found each other, in the beginning of this lovely article. xoxo

Re: “Pipette Up

Wow, thanks so much. What a surprise! I walked out of the tasting room to the stack of North Bay Bohemian to see a story on wine blending. I was so surprised to see it was about Ravenswood, I can't thank you enough!

Re: “So Far, So Near

There are a number of State Parks locally (Sugarloaf Ridge, Armstrong Redwoods) which sit mostly empty most weekdays, but do fill up somewhat on weekends. In any event, you can call Sugarloaf and ask about availability if you don't want to go through the Reserve America, admittedly clunky, and State Parks usually have a set number of first come, first served spots. They are both spectacular natural areas and, while maybe not hip like a winery, truly provide a close-up look at nature, for real. I know, because I was the campground host last summer at Sugarloaf! Awesome job.

Re: “Not Ready

President Obama is as much white as he is black. He handles the issues in his own ways based on advisors and staff inputs. He will go into history as a great President. Not perfect but truly a President looking out for his people both black and white.
