        Sure glad I bought a house in San Francisco, instead of the suburbs,
        like suburb-lover told me to do.
        \_ May I refer you to the crime stats of Oakland?  Or should I take
           the bait to point out that there are good suburbs and bad suburbs,
           just like good cities and bad cities?
           \_ Oakland is a suburb. I don't know of any diverse, walkable
              suburbs that one can navigate with a bicycle and bus pass.
              But you and I define "good" and "bad" quite differently, I

5/20    Suburbs sucking wind, cities recovering:
        \_ 2 hours of commute a day could mean nothing (e.g. a young blue
           collar worker who has all the time in the world) or it could
           mean everything (e.g. really busy city person who has little
           time and/or energy to spend with kids).

3/5     What's a good place in the south bay for families where you can
        meet other stroller moms and dads? So far people tell me that
        Santa Clara has a bad school district, San Jose is cheap but
        only if you can tolerate the commute, Mountain View Castro is
        better for singles, Los Altos Palo Altos is great if you can
        afford it. Where else is good?

        Car driver gets 5 years for assualting bicylists with car.
        \_ How many years do cyclists get when they run red lights?  I almost
           hit one last week when a cyclist ran a red light in front of me
           while I was about to start moving on my green light in Fremont.

1/21    The brakes on my bicycle lose a lot of braking power when they are wet.
        How come I don't feel the same problem with brakes on my car?  Do car
        brakes sense the braking power and automatically increase the brake
        pressure when there is less power than normal?  Thx.
        \_ Car brakes don't touch the road and the pads are much wider.
        \_ Car brakes don't get wet in the rain. At least not disc brakes.

           care of their own stuff, let alone stuff that are not theirs.

At about 11:28 pm, Vallejo police responded to to reports of multiple shots fired and a subject shot in the driveway of a home in the 100 block of Sawyer Street, police said in a statement released early Sunday. The victim, an 18-year-old male, was taken by his family to a local hospital with numerous gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at about 12:53 am after being treated at the emergency room, police said. Vallejo police are withholding the man's identity pending notification of next of kin. At least two suspects are believed to be involved in the shooting, which took place while the man was in the front driveway of a children's party he was attending, police said. In addition to the man, a 2-year-old pit bull was also shot and taken by animal control officers to a local veterinarian for treatment, police said. The case follows a string of violence in the city during the last two weeks, including a double homicide and two officer-involved shootings. Anyone with information can call the Vallejo Police Department at 1 (800) 488-9383.
