Apr. 22, 2016 Prince Dead

Prince Rogers Nelson, known to his fans simply as Prince, died at the age of 57. The multitalented musician and songwriter also produced and directed films and videos. His messages for peace and love reached a global audience. I am reminded of the line at the end of his song 1999:  “Mommy, why does everybody have a bomb?”

BART Broken

The San Francisco Bay Area Transit system is popular. Unfortunately it is breaking down so often that many can no longer can depend on it. BART is over forty years old and in need of serious overhaul. For comparison, how many people are still driving cars from the 1970s to work everyday? It is time to spend the time and effort an resources on one of the great assets of this region.
