Re: “The Big Interrupt

Your perception of the world, people and society could not be more wrong. You have powered your way through life with deep fears and insecurities. People completely tune you out and tolerate you but will not venture to be truthful with you because its too much of a hassle, and you simply wont listen. You know it all. My guess is that you have had a very, very painful upbringing. God help you. Sincerely.

Re: “The Independent

Good overview of the Bohemian's genealogy; I had looked you up on Wikipedia a while back but got lost in all the convolutions. Seeing you from Boland's PoV really helps.
An example of how mainstream newspapers are transitioning - & so far surviving - is also the Guardian (UK).
Here's to you and another year of excellent local investigative reporting!

Re: “The Rent Kept a-Rollin'

This innocuous and informational article was rolling around fine until about 3/4 of the way through, when the author felt it necessary to promote racism. Why is it ok to degenerate an entire class of people if they are "white". Racism is racism, and this is a clear case. Oh, do you want to say it's true so it's not....welll that is a very slippery slope indeed. Either stop classifying people by their race or let every racial slur stand. But, inserting it into an article, and propagating the disrespect of the Press Democrat is BS!

Re: “Still Crazy

I didn't take Ozanix seriously at first many years ago when I first heard of him and his band, but I kind of respect the guy now. He's still around after 35 years, he's still got it together, and he's still plugging away. Plus I understand he doesn't take himself too seriously. You gotta respect all of that.

Re: “One-Stop Shop

the point is "transparency", and if everything is as it should be there should be no reason to avoid it

Re: “One-Stop Shop

Well done scathing article illuminating possible corruption between builders and banks. Where there is money to be made, business will bend rules to meet their purposes - MORE MONEY. We'd like to hear from Gallaher Homes and Poppy Bank - how did the arrangement come to be?, where is the transparency?, where are other working agreements with other banks?, why is there only disclosure of the relationship at the time of escrow? And so many more questions. Kudos Peter Byrne and The Bohemian for this clear piece of reporting. A news article does not "make points" it presents the facts.

Re: “One-Stop Shop

What is the point of this article? Peter Bryne, are you suggesting that one of the most well qualified home builders in Sonoma County, who also established a successful local bank should not contribute their expertise and experience to rebuilding our community??? If the loan terms at Poppy Bank are inline with those offered at other banks....what is the beef? Kudos to Gallaher Homes and Poppy Bank for stepping up to help rebuild our community. SHAME ON Peter Byrne & The Bohemian for bad mouthing their efforts and spreading conspiracy theories. Maybe you should interview some of the Coffee Park home owners who are rebuilding with Gallaher Homes.

Re: “Drake Detective

"Discover" is an insulting term to a place that is already inhabited. Eurocentric history devalues the true history of our region.

Re: “A Positive Spin

when CDs came out I initially resisted them because I had tapes. Vinyl records do not compare in quality two CDs. Now that people are enthralled buy vinyls I wonder if the message is that they long for the good old days? The good old days are ended. We seem to be going backwards in more ways then one.

Re: “A Positive Spin

I've been an audiophile for 43 years, having only recently finally found my ideal speakers, a pair of Larsen 8's. I brought out my vintage equipment, including a 1978 Yamaha B-2 VFET amp I just had refurbished and recapped, and prepared to rock and roll. I have over 700 CDs that I'm ripping for my favorite songs only, and am looking to expand my collection. So imagine my horror when I found out that about the only music store left with a decent collection of CDs for sale is The Last Record Store on Mendocino Avenue. I have driven all over Sonoma and Marin counties, and am finding that everyone else is going the LP route and dropping CDs. I say horror not because I have anything against the resurgence of LPs, but having been a major collector of LPs up until 33 years ago, there a lot of downsides to them that perhaps many have not thought through. On the short list, they are bulky and take up a lot of room, they melt, they scratch, and they can't be played on your car system (and I've been told that it's nearly impossible to 'rip' them to CD form; for one thing, how do you get the CD to skip tracks?). The new sales pitch is that they sound better then CDs, but that depends on the recording (and of course the downloaded mp3s are barely worth listening to, no question). But what finally turned me off of LPs in the mid-80s was the fact that I was having problems getting even NEWLY pressed LPs that were not defective. I remember the day in 1985 that I returned Boz Scaggs's first album, with 'Somebody Loan Me a Dime', nine (9) times due to the fact that each newly pressed album either had scratches or skipped. I even tried buying the album at different stores, but I could not get a problem-free disc. It was at that point that I said 'never more'. I went CD, and I'm not going back. Good luck to the rest of you with your LPs. Looks like I'll have to order mine on eBay.

Re: “The Exploitation of Pat Tillman

Is it a prerequisite that Bohomian writers are fluent in English? Piss poor grammar. Probably a terrorist. #TillmanForPresident

Re: “The Fate of Chanate

Thank you, Peter Byrne. We need more investigative reporting of this type - and more investigative reporters like you.
