Oakland wants change
in its management

The Oakland mayor and Metropolis Council have defunded and demoralized the police to such an extent that they’re unable to correctly do their job. The district lawyer has bent over backward to launch incarcerated thugs to proceed committing avenue muggings, carjackings, retailer break-ins and the like.

These elected officers are straight chargeable for the concern we expertise dwelling and buying in Oakland and not directly chargeable for a rising racist, anti-democratic, pro-Trump sentiment. Vote these clowns out of workplace as quickly as doable.

Lee’s critique of
excessive courtroom is spot on

Re: “Name to remake courtroom proves Lee is unfit” (Web page A6, Might 26).

With all due respect, I have to reply to Dick Patterson’s letter. U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee has been a devoted servant of the folks for a few years. Her accusations in opposition to America’s highest courtroom are most actually not baseless.

U.S. Supreme Court docket Justice Clarence Thomas has tarnished the courtroom’s picture and its credibility together with his monetary shenanigans. His refusal to disclose monetary privileges given to him by Texas billionaire Harlan Crow are details, not rumors. From the affirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court docket has been step by step weakening, not strengthening, our democracy.

So far as sabotaging the effectivity and equality of the courtroom, former President Donald Trump has written the ebook on undermining reality and justice. For all intents and functions, Lee was spot on together with her critique of the courtroom. Reforms and adjustments are wanted now.

Let Feinstein serve
the remainder of her time period

I used to be a part of the refrain saying Sen. Dianne Feinstein is dysfunctional and will retire gracefully. I’ve modified my thoughts on this situation and help her staying till her time period is over for the next rationale.

The Republican senators have been doing every thing they’ll to dam the actions of the Senate Judiciary Committee in advancing judicial confirmations. If Sen. Feinstein resigns, they’d refuse to let Democrats fill her seat on this committee. Sen. Feinstein’s resignation would solely end in leaping out of the frying pan into the hearth. We can’t depend upon the statements of senators like Lindsay Graham that they’d help the substitute if Feinstein resigned now.

Sen. Feinstein has a wonderful observe file and can go down in historical past as among the best senators we’ve ever had. Let the forces be together with her as she battles her well being points and completes her time period.

AI nonetheless leaves
a lot to be desired

I’ve heard rather a lot about AI just lately, how college students can use it to do their homework or write ebook reviews. This, to me, appears form of juvenile; a mere device of the lazy. If we actually have such “intelligence” at our fingertips, why don’t we use it for one thing extra substantive?

I requested one “How we are able to resolve the homeless drawback?” “What can we do to finish the conflict in Ukraine?” Hoping for some enlightenment, I anticipated an excessive amount of and was disillusioned by the reply “Looks as if we hit a snag. Are you able to strive one other variation?”
