County alone is staggering. Millions have been lost and jobs have disappeared. Opening the railroad is the only option for the economy to improve. And once the tracks are reopened commuter trains can start running. The original plan for passenger services was for it to run from Eureka into Marin. Having a commuter train go from Ukiah to Marin would make a significant improvement on both the economy and the environment. Those opposing the reopening of the railroad are not seeing the forest through the trees. Rail ties can be replaced without polluting the ground around them. The other group just wants to protest. It really is sad. William French, San Francisco (formerly Ukiah)

Anti-Scientology book ‘slanted,’ say Scientologists... Recently you ran a piece [“Master of Illusions,” March 1] on Lawrence Wright’s book, Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief. The book is extremely slanted and contains many falsehoods. The Church of Scientology International’s statement on the book is as follows: Mr. Wright’s book is so ludicrous it belongs in a supermarket tabloid. The book is an errorHistorians believe the real Humpty Dumpty may have been filled, unsubstantiated, bigoted anti-Scientolthe name of a cannon. ogy book.

describe Lawrence Wright are corrupt and bigoted. A self-described atheist, Mr. Wright apparently feels that Scientologists have no rights to express their religious beliefs. In a letter of Oct. 14, 2011, a full 15 months before publication, the Church offered full cooperation to answer any questions so as to provide all information Mr. Wright would need to accurately represent the religion, the Church, its leadership and Founder. The Church repeated this request 15 times, as many of the letters went entirely unanswered while others resulted in only about a dozen fact-checks consisting of obscure or mundane subjects out of context. As a result, Mr. Wright produced a travesty of falsehoods. Millions of Scientologists around the world embrace the religion. Since Lawrence Wright began his research, 30 new Churches of Scientology, known as Ideal Organizations, opened across the world—12 in 2012 alone—and our humanitarian programs are bringing help to thousands of people from all walks of life on a daily basis. To find out the true story of Scientology and its Founder, one can visit,, or one can read Mr. Hubbard’s books, which are available worldwide.

The ‘curious’ case of John Walker Lindh... In “A Boy and His Dogma,” [March 15] Pacific Sun reporter Joanne Williams does not tell us that John Walker Lindh is in prison simply for being on the other side of a U.S. war. She does not tell us that when the Northern Alliance handed Lindh over to CIA interrogators, the Alliance was already serving as the U.S. ground force in its war against Afghanistan—a war Williams mistakenly attributes to tribal enmities, rather than the long and bloody U.S. overthrow of the progressive, Soviet-backed Afghan government in the ’80s and ’90s. These errors are important, since a great many of us here and abroad consider the U.S. invasion, destruction and occupation of Afghanistan a crime against humanity, committed for economic and geopolitical reasons. An accurate article might force the reader to consider whether in 2001, when Lindh was taken prisoner, Afghans and supporters like Lindh might believe the invasion worth resisting. That would make Lindh appear very different than the exotic curiosity Williams makes of him in her condescending article. The editor will now remind me of the 6 PACIFIC SUN APRIL 12 - APRIL 18, 2013

Like most ‘bargains,’ you get what you pay for... Recently President Obama found the voice many have waited for and called the sequester dumb, and while finally using this adjective to describe Republican antics is about four years late in coming, it does give one hope. Up to this point Mr. Obama has been seeking a “grand bargain” with the Republicans and the Tea Party that controls them. The reality is that he has aided in the abrogation of the “grand bargain” that we’ve long tacitly enjoyed. The ill-informed and the proudly ignorant would inhabit the margins, a vanguard protecting us from fluoridation, the United Nations, commies, aliens and most recently big government, taxation, and again, aliens. This crowd was benignly tolerated in such lunacy, and for its part never really sought or expected a seat at the table. Thus the bargain. At some point this bargain began to unravel. It was a spectacle when so many villages could afford to send their idiot to Tea Party gatherings to demand that government keep its hands off their Medicare. And the tricorn hat is a most apt symbol for a group that doesn’t know whether it is coming or going. Somehow this spectacle became the spectacular. These modern-day Know-Nothings now offered a seat at the table, seemingly as honored guests, were courted and their inanities celebrated as viable and worthy discourse. So yes, Mr. Obama should seek a grand bargain. By reviving the old one. J. S. Danielson, San Rafael

One good thing about the rise of the Tea Party—we now know these things are called ‘tricorn’ hats.

Say it—don’t spray it! Herbicide critics choking at grand jury nod to chems in the watershed by Pe te r S e id m an


Marin grand jury report issued last month encourages the Marin Municipal Water District to include limited use of herbicides in its arsenal to control nonnative plants on its watershed. It came as a surprise to water district officials. The report essentially stakes a position that the danger of catastrophic wildfire on watershed land poses more of a risk than the careful use of herbicides. “The grand jury strongly believes that the high risk of wildfires far exceeds the very low risk associated with the controlled use of herbicides.” That conclusion is drawing skepticism and disdain from opponents of herbicide use. The report supports one of the two approaches included in the water district’s vegetation management plan, now called the Wildfire Protection and Habitat Improvement Plan. The name change is a masterful public relations stroke; it’s also a more accurate interpretation of the management plan, say water district officials. Frank Egger, former Fairfax mayor and current board member at the Ross Valley Sanitary District, questions whether the water district suggested that the grand jury look at fire danger in relation to herbicide use. In 2006, Egger ran for the seat on the water district board vacated by Jared Huffman, who moved to the state Assembly. One of Egger’s major campaign planks in his unsuccessful election bid: The water district watershed should be a pesticidefree zone.

“We did not approach them,” says Libby Pischel about how the grand jury got involved in looking at fire danger in relation to a vegetation management plan. Pischel, public information officer at the water district, recalls that members of the grand jury attended a public information meeting. “We did not know they were members of the grand jury.” Those who attended the meeting contacted district staff and asked them to present information about the management plan “to a larger group.” They didn’t say they were focusing specifically on the vegetation management plan. “They said they were looking at wildfire issues in Marin County in general.” They interviewed board members and toured the watershed. “I was quite surprised when I saw the [grand jury] document and saw that it was 100 percent focused on our plan. I had no idea that was what was coming out,” says Pischel. The grand jury report focuses on 18,900 acres of the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed, which borders Lagunitas, Forest Knolls, San Geronimo, San Anselmo, Ross, Fairfax, Kentfield, Mill Valley, Larkspur, Corte Madera and Woodacre. There are 13,200 structures within one mile of the watershed boundary. “Three hundred structures are on or within 300 feet of the boundary,” according to the report. “These 13,200 structures are in imminent danger of a devastating wildfire similar to the 1991 Oakland Hills firestorm, which 9 > Poll Results The College of Marin Foundation has come under fire for using $464,000 of student program money on lawyers and consultants.

Wanted: Former sewer czar Brett Richards The former manager of the Ross Valley Sanitary District has landed in the stink—as Brett Richards is facing nine felony counts filed against him this week by the Marin County District Attorney. According to DA officials, the charges against Richards allege that he “misappropriated and diverted $350,000 loaned to him as part of his compensation package.” The loan was made to Richards in 2010, expressly to be used for the $197,000-a-year sanitation czar to purchase Bay Area housing. But when reports surfaced two years later that no such purchase was on file with any county recorder in the state, Richards abruptly resigned. An eight-month investigation, say DA officials, “developed evidence that the $350,000 was moved by Brett Richards through a series of bank accounts and never utilized for its intended purpose.” So far, Richards has repaid about $12,000, or 3.5 percent of the loan—but, according to the RSVD, no payments have been received since the autumn, and correspondence has been limited to letters from Richards posted from a Florida post office. Richards hasn’t been completely silent all this time, though. His website, which he created apparently to expose corruption within the sanitary district, provided the former GM with a forum to vent about the RVSD board, district staff and other “key players.” The website is no longer active. Richards’ current whereabouts are unknown, according to the DA. There is a warrant out for his arrest and bail’s been set at $1,000,000. Among the charges against the skedaddling sewer superior are misappropriation of public funds, embezzlement, as well as money laundering allegations. If anyone has info on his whereabouts, call the DA at 415/473-6450 and ask for Chief Inspector Rob Guidi. British tabloid apologizes to Neal Schon Journalism lesson No. 1: Always verify statements made by an ex-husband’s former mother-in-law. That’s what the British tabloid the Daily Mail found out this month after using blog entries by Neal Schon’s former mother-in-law as a primary source for a story that alleged the Journey guitarist was a deadbeat dad. Judy Kozan issued her blog postings this January in the wake of Schon’s victory in court over Kozan’s daughter, his ex-wife Amber Schon. The former Mrs. Schon had taken him to court seeking an additional $2,700 in monthly support payments. To the disappointment of Kozan and her daughter, the Minnesota judge ruled in favor of the Marin-based musician, saying that he’d already paid Amber more than $1.3 million since the couple divorced in 2007. Unfortunately, editors at the Daily Mail didn’t take that into consideration when it sourced Kozan’s personal blog and ran its story: “Exclusive: Journey guitarist Neal Schon left ex-wife and daughters ‘so broke they can’t buy food’...but he gave Real Housewives of DC fiancée $1 million ring.” Schon, in turn, filed suit in March against Kozan and the Mail. Today the Daily Mail issued this apology and explanation: On 22 February we published an article about Journey guitarist Neal Schon and his fiancée Michaele Salahi, entitled ‘Exclusive: Journey guitarist Neal Schon left ex-wife and daughters “so broke they can’t buy food”...but he gave Real Housewives of DC fiancée $1 MILLION ring’. It claimed falsely that Mr Schon was a deadbeat dad and repeated allegations that he had neglected his exwife and two young children, leaving them in such a precarious financial position that they have no money for food or bills and that their home would have to be sold. It also reported claims that Mr Schon was a “drunk and abusive man” who had become “increasingly spiteful and vindictive” 9> using his money to bully his ex-wife and that his fiancée Michaele Salahi had turned him APRIL 12- APRIL 18, 2013 PACIFIC SUN 7

VMarilyn Geary recently received an interesting call from CVS Pharmacy; however, it wasn’t about picking up a prescription. The operator connected her with Lorraine Allen, a volunteer at Friends Books on C Street in San Rafael. (This charming bookstore benefits the San Rafael Library.) Though Marilyn didn’t know Lorraine, the volunteer knew a little about her. A coin purse containing $70, but no ID, had been sitting in the bookstore’s lost and found since last December. Lorraine noticed a CVS receipt tucked in the purse and called the pharmacy to request their assistance in identifying the customer. Thanks to Lorraine’s diligent investigative work, Marilyn was finally reunited with her coin purse and cash. What did she do with her windfall? Bought books, of course.

WTo tip, or not to tip? That is the question that will determine this week’s Zero. Joe Thibodeau of West Marin recently enjoyed a 90-minute massage at a Fairfax day spa. He paid the $100 fee in advance. When he departed, he was approached in the parking lot by the desk clerk. According to Joe, he was “shaken down” for a gratuity, and even asked what he did for a living. The massage therapist didn’t get a tip, but Joe did. He is no longer welcome at that particular hot-tub spa. We believe in tipping service providers, yet a quick scan of the spa’s website came up with zilch about tips. Require it or honor your customer’s decision. Otherwise, you’re a Zero. —Nikki Silverstein

< 7 Say it—don’t spray it destroyed 2,900 structures and killed 25 people. The watershed is rated high or very high for fire risk by the California Department of Forestry.” Egger says he knows from firsthand experience what a wildfire on watershed land would look like. “In 1945, I was 6 years old and I was out looking at the fire that came over from Mill Valley with my dad. We took a ride out to Samuel Taylor [Park] to watch the fire. It had burned right down to Sir Francis Drake, to the pavement. It was smoldering and logs were burning. Not a fire truck in sight because the county just didn’t have a huge firefight operation in 1945. That’s changed today.” Egger says using herbicides to clear nonnative plants on the watershed in the name of fire prevention is an operation that simply isn’t needed because efficient firefighting strategies and personnel preclude a repeat of the wildfires that have in the past swept across Mt. Tam and the watershed. “With the crews we have available, the planes we have available, I have full confidence in our ability to get a handle on a fire very quickly.” But the grand jury report contradicts Egger’s position. “Previous Marin County grand juries have reported on these dangers from different perspectives,” the report states. “All of these reports dating back to the early 1990s have acknowledged the danger to property and life.” In addition to a risk assessment, the issue of what methods to use to reduce fire danger and protect the ecology of the watershed also brings to the fore that old analytic tool, the cost-benefit analysis. The invasives are spreading by about 30 acres a year despite the district’s current arsenal of removal tools (minus herbicide use). The district’s budget can’t handle total eradication, even if it were possible. According to the management plan, “the cost of full implementation would far exceed the district’s current vegetation management budget of approximately $875,000 per year....” But by using herbicides in the management toolbox, the district could stretch its dollar and get more removal punch. The water district is compiling an environmental report that looks at two main ways to control the nonnative plants that have invaded watershed land and pose, according to the district, a threat to biodiversity and present a fire danger. One approach under consideration, weed control without using herbicides, would cost about $5,600,000 a year in a battle of attrition to the invasives. A second approach, weed control with limited use of conventional herbicides, will cost about $1,600,000 a year to meet the plan’s goals. Because the district has insufficient funds to totally eradicate the invasives, the management plan lays out five zones for varying actions. Zone 1 comprises 87 percent of the watershed and is the least disturbed acreage. It includes numerous populations of rare and endangered spe-

cies of plants and animals. Protecting that habitat will become increasingly important as the effects of climate change take hold in California. The management plan calls for taking the most widespread effort to eradicate invasives in this zone, which is most removed from habitation. The zones progress down to Zone 5, a limited action zone, which is about 3 percent of the watershed. “The zone is characterized by little to no maintenance or operational activity. Ecosystem functions are degraded, invasive weeds often are the dominant plants in the area, and there are few to no rare or otherwise significant species present,” according to the plan. Because eliminating the invasives in Zone 5 would be difficult or impossible and consume valuable budget dollars, these areas would receive the least attention. Prioritizing the zones for varying levels of action will allow the district to improve the efficiency of its fuel-break system. It also will allow the district it “turn back the tide [in some areas] and protect really valuable resources,” says Janet Klein, natural resource program manager and vegetation ecologist at the district. The management plan also “sadly, identifies areas where we just don’t think we have the resources to even hold it back. That’s primarily in the Deer Park and Phoenix Lake areas of Fairfax and Ross. We don’t have the resources to make meaningful gains there to restore habitat and hold back the weeds.” The main culprits are various varieties of broom plants. According to the grand jury report, “Broom infests over 1,200 acres of the Mount Tamalpais watershed and spreads at a rate of 30 acres per year. It is a highly combustible weed that during a firestorm will spread fire to the tree canopy and lead to potentially larger and more frequent fires.” The water district used a combat plan that included herbicide use, but in 2005, the water district board called a moratorium on using herbicides to control the nonnative species. Since that time, during which the water district used hand-pulling and other non-chemical means to control broom spread, the weeds have spread to an area that equals about 210 football fields. The district says that using herbicides in its arsenal of weed control can accomplish the best result at the lowest cost. The environmental report the district is compiling will start by looking at three herbicide products in the vegetation management plan: AquaMaster, with the active ingredient glyphosate; Garlon 4 Ultra, active ingredient triclopyr; and Transline, with clopyralid as its active ingredient. In addition, the environmental report will look at the efficacy and effects of what are called surfactants, which promote the uptake of an active ingredient like glyphosate into plant leaves, including Competitor and Sylgard 309 surfactants; and assess three organic herbicides, Scythe, Matran and acetic acid (vinegar). “It’s possible that alternative chemicals might be proposed,” says Klein.

After a scoping meeting in the fall, an initial step in the environmental report process, the district received comments from the public about what should be included in the environmental report. Because of the large number of comments and suggestions during the process, the environmental report, which will include responses to the comments, won’t be ready until late fall or winter. The chemical that receives the most attention from critics is glyphosate, originally introduced to the world by Monsanto. It’s now the most-used herbicide in the world. “Glyphosate is effective on many different plants,” says Klein. “It has a lower toxic profile than most other synthetically manufactured herbicides. It’s not completely without risk, but it has less risk” than many other herbicide formulations. Critics of using glyphosate on water district land say they don’t buy the seal of approval that the grand jury report—and the water district—has stamped on its use. The grand jury took note of the opposition in a left-handed sort of way: “some community activists refuse to consider any information showing that a managed application of herbicides approved by the EPA can be used in any form. Decisions concerning the use of herbicides to control fuel load on MMWD lands should be based entirely on science, economics and the broad public welfare.” Critics of herbicide use point to numerous studies that show negative effects from the use of glyphosate on humans and animals. But Klein says there isn’t compelling evidence to absolutely prove that glyphosate poses a danger if it is used with caution. That’s essentially what the EPA says. But Egger counters that the EPA assessment comes from chemical manufacturers, not from independent scientists. It’s fair to say that the jury is still out, at least to some extent. The EPA is conducting an investigation to re-register glyphosate, which will be

completed in 2015. Re-registration is a routine process that takes place every 15 years. Critics of using herbicides say the district should wait until that study is complete. “We have a responsibility to protect the watershed,” says Pischel, “and we need to keep moving. If information comes, we will of course consider it, but we can’t delay.” Bill Rothman, a staunch critic of herbicide use on the watershed, says the grand jury took a superficial look at the issues. He says the grand jury failed to assess the true toxicity of the proposed herbicides. For instance, he says that glyphosate persists in the environment for a long time. He points to a study that shows that the chemical remained potent three months after application. But Klein points out that glyphosate remains potent only on plants that are alive. And the kill rate for the application is about 99 percent. In addition, a dye will be sprayed that will show workers where the chemical has landed. The district is compiling a full risk assessment study to round out the investigation into possible herbicide use on the watershed. But Ginger Souders-Mason, director of the Pesticide Free Zone, says the district—and Marin residents—would be better served if the district embarked on a multi-prong strategy “so you don’t need the application of herbicides.” A multi-prong strategy is just what the district is proposing. But to the consternation of critics, one of the prongs is the use of herbicides. “At a philosophical level, I am right there with them,” says Klein. “I am opposed to using herbicides on the watershed. I live in Marin. My children have grown up here. At a personal level, I appreciate the degree of scrutiny that is taking place in the district. If this decision is going to be made, it is going to be made well, with a maximum attention to safety.” < Contact the writer at

Suspect eludes Sheriff in West Marin manhunt Law enforcement agencies from Marin and Sonoma counties suspended their search April 5 for a man suspected of stealing a vehicle, threatening an officer and fleeing authorities through several West Marin communities. An “incident command post” was established in Woodacre, and the Marin County Sheriff’s Office reports that about two dozen officers from a variety of agencies participated in the search. As of this writing, the suspect remains at large; investigators think he may have slipped away after stealing a dark blue 2009 Toyota Highlander from a West Marin residence. Here’s what we know: At approximately 6am April 5, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department began to investigate an auto theft report in Windsor. They tracked the vehicle, a darkcolored GMC SUV, into the Petaluma area. Law enforcement officials attempted to contact the suspect and were threatened by the man. A Taser was used in an attempt to subdue the suspect, but he fled in the vehicle. The suspect headed west on Petaluma-Point Reyes Road into West Marin and was spotted by a Marin County Sheriff’s deputy near Nicasio Reservoir. A short pursuit took place before the deputy lost sight of the suspect vehicle. More officers were called in as the suspect was tracked via the OnStar system equipped on the vehicle. The man drove through Point Reyes Station, Olema and Bolinas before heading back east on Fairfax-Bolinas Road into the town of Fairfax. Later in the morning, the suspect left the vehicle in Woodacre and continued on foot. APRIL 12- APRIL 18, 2013 PACIFIC SUN 9

You can’t judge a book by its cover—but you can certainly judge an album, says Eric Christensen

Christensen pulls out the Steve Miller Band's psychedelic 'Children of the Future' album from an LP collection numbering in the thousands.

“I saw [John Lennon] as a cardboard cutout on an album cover.” —Mark David Chapman


ome people take album covers very seriously. Mill Valley filmmaker Eric Christensen counts himself among them. From such beloved covers as Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Velvet Underground & Nico to the craftily created controversies of Mom’s Apple Pie and Blind Faith, the shot on the cardboard covering an LP has sometimes been as memorable—or more so—than the music on the vinyl.

To that, Christensen would wholeheartmusic, I have a great collection of art.” edly agree. Like many music obsessives, Christensen Christensen and his love of music came for years owned pristine prints of Warhol, of age in the 1950s—just at the time when Crumb, Leibovitz and dozens of other galleryalbum covers were becoming more than quality artists—all stacked like pancakes on merely a grinning headshot and a name on his record shelves. a label.

Christensen was none-too impressed by the small art provided by CDs, and downright annoyed by the “sociological change from the album to digital download.” “In the late ’60s early ’70s I’d get promo albums and you’d pass it around and listen— it’s a communal experience. It’s sharing,” says Christensen. “True of books and music, the way we consume info now has profound changes.

promising gig as a documentary filmmaker. His 2007 debut, The Trips Festival, brought to life one of the seminal events of the ’60s—and his latest, The Cover Story, is an ode to the album artwork that can often define a record before a single note is played. We asked him what the big deal is about Jagger’s zipper, Warhol’s banana and the Beatles’ creative play with dolls...   


What makes a great album cover? Concept, boldness and giving some sort of clue to what is in the grooves. Jim Flora's 1947 illustration for 'Louis Armstrong's Hot 5' was like a visual representation of the bebop era.

From Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley to Victor Moscoso and Ethan Russell, Marin’s been home to some of the alltime great album artists. Is it, er, something in the air? As the creative scene that began in San

Francisco—first with the Beats in North Beach, then with the hippies in the Haight Ashbury—changed, as what I call the “vicarious” people came—those who just came and wanted to look the part and experience what

the artistic people started—the scene dissolved and many of us moved to Marin. This also coincided with a “back to nature” and a more organic lifestyle that many of the artists craved.

Jacket required Eric comments on some of rock 'n' roll's most famous covers: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band One of the greatest of all time, we all spent hours looking at it while listening to the groundbreaking music.

London Calling One of the iconic images that screamed Punk.

John and Yoko: Two Virgins A bold statement of putting it all out there and not caring what others would think.


Nevermind One of the great covers of all time, it was an image that the viewer could interpret in many different ways.

The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan It made you wish you were in Greenwhich Village during the early sixties.

Sticky Fingers How can you miss with the combination of Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger and a zipper.

The Velvet Underground and Nico Another Warhol classic, as Warhol did with the Campbell's Soup can, he changed the way we all looked at bananas.

You talk about how album covers are the late 20th century’s Renoirs, Picassos, etc. But can an album cover truly be disassociated from its music source? Or to put it another way, how interesting is Alton Kelley/Stanley Mouse’s the “kid with the ice cream cone” if it weren’t on the back of the Dead’s Europe ‘72? When people 100 years from now look back to the artwork that would explain the ’60s they will focus on Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, Victor Moscoso and Rick Griffin as the artists who represented the era, just as Picasso and Renoir now stand out representing their era. Their work would stand out apart from the music, but the fact their art represented the music with a visual component forever links them with the soundtrack of our lives. Your movie features many notable musicians—from Elvis Costello and members of the Dead, to Carlos Santana and Yoko Ono. Was there anyone you’d tried to get an interview with, but couldn’t? My greatest regret was not getting Joni Mitchell to appear on camera in the documentary. She of course is mentioned and others talk about her, but I was particularly interested in recording artists who do the graphics for their own albums. I’m amazed at anyone who has those multi-faceted talents, and to me both musically and artistically, Joni Mitchell is one of the best. She was contacted by me and other friends of hers, but politely declined to appear on camera. Name a couple of your personal favorite album covers. Jim Flora’s fantastic drawing of Louis Armstrong for his 1947 album Hot Five Volume 2; Flora’s graphic images were the visual representation of the bebop era and Flora’s style influenced many artists that followed. Bob Seidemann’s photo of Mariora Goschen for the Blind Faith album, a controversial cover that couldn’t have been done in the years before the late ’60s, and couldn’t have been done after. Seidemann always pushed the envelope and his execution of concept is still amazing to me. The story behind this cover is the centerpiece of my documentary. Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake by Mick Swan for the Small Faces, simply elegant. 14>

The Beatles’ “butcher boy cover” for the album Yesterday and Today; it was considered a controversial cover and was pasted over with an even worse image. I never got why dismembered dolls and pieces of meat in the laps of the Beatles wearing butcher coats would offend anyone, especially while at the same time, the reality of killing Vietnamese babies didn’t outrage the entire country and end the war immediately.

but not overtly sexual. The reason I wanted to talk to the woman who posed for it was to find out how she felt about it at the time, 1968, and how she feels about it now.

Yoko Ono’s 1981 album Season of Glass features John Lennon’s blood-stained glasses on the cover, and was released within six months of his tragic murder. Do you think the criticism she took, and still takes, for that is warranted? Yoko’s talking about that powerful cover was one of the most powerful moments in my film. I didn’t bring up the topic out of respect for Yoko, but she brought it up and The Blind Faith cover is probably more wanted to talk about it.

Capitol Records ordered plant managers to destroy undelivered copies; today the extremely rare 'Butcher'cover sells for as much as $39,000.

Of the living artists, Storm Thorgerson. He was not only a great designer, but a performance artist who created the scenes he photographed and did this without the use of Photoshop.

In this age of digital, are album covers a dying art? While I embrace the digital age and all the advantages it offers in accessibility to information and entertainment, are we losing artifact in the digital age? It is something worthy of discussion. I value artifacts that you can touch, hold and relate to in a tangible way. Digital images exist in another realm. I liken listening to a 12-inch album while passing the cover around in a communal setting to a nice meal with wine and conversations. The digital age, with people listening to music alone using earbuds, is more like a meal from a fast food drive-through. <

There’s no shortage of lists, books and websites dedicated to the greatest album covers (and worst album covers). How do you explain this new fascination with album covers? It’s part of our collective consciousness, and these were the visual beacons associated with the soundtracks of our lives, and each one of them conjures up a memory that often is associated with the best times of our lives.

A tip of the toque Local chefs, premier wines has ‘great’ written all over it... by Pat Fu sco

Luv and Lewis will lounge around for Lifehouse April 20 in Novato.

‘SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL’ Maybe April isn’t the easiest month to come up with the three-figure fee for a food event, but if anything is worth the admission it’s Great Chefs & Wineries, Marin’s premier fundraiser that takes place April 20. Lifehouse is the organization behind it, a nonprofit agency serving individuals with developmental disabilities since 1954; last year the event raised $415,000. Culinary host Heidi Krahling (Insalata’s, Marinitas) rounds up the talent—chefs from more than 25 top Bay Area restaurants— and they’re joined by an equal number of wineries, brewers and producers of spirits. Master of ceremonies is comic lounge singer Bud E. Luv and honorary chairman is Huey Lewis, whose group Huey Lewis & The News will stage an intimate concert to close out the evening. All of this happens at the modernist headquarters of Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company in Novato, where there will be a huge outdoor tent for appetizer service before the indoor formal dinner and live auction. New Marin restaurants taking part this year are 123 Bolinas, Copita, Lincoln Park, Odalisque Cafe and Saltwater Oyster Depot. Hours are 5:30-11pm; cost is $300 per person. Elegant cocktail attire is the way to dress. Details and tickets: EAT, DRINK—BE MERRY Most intriguing news on the restaurant scene this week might be titled “The Little Burger That Could.” Marinwood’s tiny home for tiny burgers, Weezy’s Grass-Fed Shed, will be opening a venue in Mill Valley’s Hawk’s Tavern location, taking over part of the Miller Avenue site. Owner Louise Clow hopes this will happen within a couple of months so she can add her Prather Ranch beef patties to the town’s seemingly insatiable appetite for upscale fast food...Forget wine dinners for one night and try a 16 PACIFIC SUN APRIL 12 -APRIL 18, 2013

tequila dinner at Saylor’s Restaurant and Bar in Sausalito April 13 (6pm). Featured will be what is touted as the world’s only single ranch, single vintage: Tequila Ocho. Shots will accompany a menu of tequilaenhanced dishes, including dessert—a tequila flan. Cost is $35; reservations required. 2009 Bridgeway; 415/332-1512 or Also in Sausalito, Poggio has introduced a weekday Negroni Hour featuring an imaginative menu of cocktails inspired by the classic Italian aperitif. Five distinctly different versions are offered at $5 each, 4-6pm, Monday-Friday. 777 Bridgeway... Live music now brightens Friday evenings (6-9pm) at Boca Pizzeria in the Village, Corte Madera, where there are fresh spring additions to the food selections; 415/924-3021. GET OUT OF TOWN! Here are a few events close enough to make them hard to resist: April 13-14 and 20-21, the Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival. This cultural happening in San Francisco’s Japantown invites crowds to experience music, dance, martial arts, crafts demos, a film festival and food booths serving Japanese and Japanese-American favorites. Always the biggest draw is the colorful grand parade April 21; it begins at noon at City Hall and ends around 3pm in Japantown. For details, check out http:// 17 (6:30-9pm): With all the enthusiasm for Southern food in restaurants these days, one would think somebody would be teaching us how to do it ourselves. To the rescue comes Soul Food Soiree at La Cocina, the San Francisco incubator kitchen for aspiring restaurateurs. Fernay McPherson (Minnie Bell’s) and Dionne Knox (Zella’s Soulful Kitchen) will demonstrate and feed you gumbo, succotash and other home-style classics. Cost is $80, $150 for couples. 2948 Folsom, 20-21 (10am-4pm): April in Carneros is a multi-winery open house in the nearby region. Twenty wineries in the area that covers parts of Sonoma and Napa valleys will participate, with food and/or entertainment at almost every one. Examples? Salsa music at Ceja Vineyards, Cajun sausages at Meadowcroft Wines, Yucatecan food at Homewood Winery and catered treats from The Girl & The Fig at Tin Barn Vineyards. Cost is $30 in advance, $45 on event day with a $10 admission for designated drivers. Information (including maps) and tickets: < Contact Pat at


Ponsford’s Place 117 Shaver Street, San Rafael. Whenever I learn about someone in the food industry who attended the California Culinary Academy around the same time I did, I always cheer the person and wonder if I might have been frantically whisking up my first mother sauce next to him, or barely containing my delight at the sight of a luscious 5-kilo block of dark Callebaut chocolate. When Craig Ponsford graduated from CCA in the early ‘90s, he opened Artisan Bakers in Sonoma County. Over the years he has received international awards for his breads and has spent time teaching his passion for baking at the Culinary Institute of America. Most recently (about two years ago), he returned to his hometown of San Rafael and opened a bakery/innovation center. Fortunately, the postage stamp-sized white- and green-trimmed building that houses Ponsford’s Place, is a cozy neighborhood spot and bears little resemblance to what I would envision a “center” might be. Instead the little clapboard building is tucked away on Shaver Street between Third and Fourth streets (in the neighborhood now known as the West End) and serves up an array of gluten-free cookies, savory quiches, breads and even housemade jams, including such delights as blood orange butter and persimmon apple. Everything I have sampled here, such as the flaky croissants, bright lemon curd and challah, is clearly made with a deft hand. Ponsford avoids processed ingredients and much of his offerings promote a “healthy” good-for-you message. I appreciate the experimental nature of Ponsford’s approach and applaud him for using and combining such interesting ingredients from almond flour and coconut sugar to his toothsome American walnut bread prepared with hard red wheat, corn and rye flours. We are lucky to have a baker with the experience and craftsmanship that is so obvious in every tasty morsel that comes out of this quirky little space. The only downside: It’s only open to retail customers on Friday and Saturday. But if you haven’t already, include Ponsford’s in your weekend plans—it’s worth it. Oh, there’s good coffee and tea, too. —Tanya Henry



Andy’s Local Market, 688 Point San Pedro Road, San Rafael. 415/456-5730 One of my favorite places to get lunch or pick up a quick dinner is Andy’s Local Market in San Rafael’s Loch Lomond Marina. The chicken pesto sandwich is gooey with fresh mozzarella and herbaceous basil sauce and the succulent chicken is grilled to perfection. I’m also partial to the tuna melt with red onion and fresh tomato, camped under a melted dome of Swiss, all served on their terrific focaccia. If a deli sandwich isn’t your thing, Andy’s has a pizza oven and turns out an impressive selection of flatbreads and pizzas. There are usually a couple of kinds sold by the slice or you can pick up a whole pie for an easy dinner or lunch for a crowd. The Pt. San Pedro Road is a winner with olive oil, spicy marinara, provolone, mozzarella, Italian sausage, jalapeno and fresh garlic— yum! The deli case is packed with salads, entrees like meatloaf or enchiladas, appetizers and seasonal veggies—and there are always two hot, homemade soups. A small coffee bar and petite bakery counter with a few tables make for a perfect place to get a quick breakfast. Besides all the fabulous foodie things one can get at Andy’s, the location in scenic Loch Lomond Marina is a stunner. Take your food out to a bench along the waterfront, count the boats, watch the birds and dream of what you’ll get the next time you go to Andy’s. —Brooke Jackson

It was 20 years ago today! Two decades later, the search for the ultimate ‘post-film conversation’ reels on... by David Te mpleton


ickey McGowan is searching for the right words, words that best describe a particular vibe we’ve each experienced many times. “It’s that vibe you get in a movie theater, that tribal-family-of-man vibe,” says McGowan, artist, collector and observer of the human condition, best known as the founder of the legendary Unknown Museum, a sprawling, underground not-open-to-thegeneral-public collection of pop-cultural artifacts and collectibles from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. The museum, which once drew visitors from all over the state to its former site in Mill Valley, was known for its own hard-to-describe vibe, not dissimilar to the theatergoing vibe McGowan is now conjuring out of thin air. “That vibe is a vital part of the moviegoing experience,” he says. “Yes, you can always watch movies at home and, of course, I watch movies alone in my studio all day long, and I love it!” He gestures toward a tower of DVDs stacked up beside a small television set in his cozily crammed San Rafael studio. “But I know,” he continues, “that there’s nothing quite like gathering in the dark of a theater, with a group of total strangers, to watch a film. It’s a sacred place, the movie theater, and watching movies is sacred thing, or it can be if you approach it properly. “And then,” he adds, leaning in to emphasize that he’s about to make the salient point, “then there’s the very important element of the post-film conversation.” McGowan now gestures, graciously, toward me. “As you, David, have devoted 20 years— two complete decades—to demonstrating,” he says, “the post-film conversation is a sacred part of that experience, a sacred ritual one might and should observe after going to the holy shrine of the cinema.” The “post-film conversation.” McGowan speaks a-right. It is a sacred ritual, and yes, as of Feb. 7, 2013, I have been pursuing it—the ultimate post-film conversation—for 20 full years. It was 20 years ago that, out of the blue,

McGowan feels he’s been typecast as ‘the guy to take to movies based on old TV shows.’ 18 PACIFIC SUN APRIL 12 – APRIL 18, 2013

I looked up McGowan’s number in the phonebook, called him up and invited him to see a movie. The film was Joe Dante’s Matinee, released Jan. 28, 1993, a film about a 1960s horror film director (played by John Goodman) who debuts his new “Atomovision” fright-flick in a small Florida town in October 1962, smack in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The impulse to invite McGowan, who I’d never met, to see Matinee, came after reading a review of the film in the Marin IJ, where I worked at the time as a paste-up artist in the production department. On the same page was an interview with McGowan, who’d just opened an exhibition at the Falkirk Mansion, turning the upstairs gallery into a kind of miniature Unknown Museum, featuring piles of Lincoln Logs, stacks of classic board games (Candy Land, Mystery Date, Cootie), and—in the section of the exhibit known as The Boys Room—countless Wolfman movie models, Frankenstein masks, Creature of the Black Lagoon figurines and other paraphernalia from the golden age of monster movies. As I read the two articles, I muttered to my wife, Susan, “Wouldn’t it be fun to see this movie with this guy?” To which Susan replied, “Well, give him a call.” I did. Despite the fact that I was a total stranger, inviting him out on a movie date, McGowan said yes, and one week later, Susan and I met Mickey and his wife, Finnlandia, at the movie theater, and watched Matinee. Afterwards, on a hunch that I was on to something, I tape-recorded our postfilm conversation—I hadn’t technically coined the phrase yet—and was delightfully surprised at how rich, insightful, funny and tangential our 90-minute conversation proved to be. As I said to Susan, driving away from Bogie’s Cafe—where our foursome met after the film—”I think I’m going to have to do more of these.” And that’s how Talking Pictures was born. Since that day, I’ve discussed hundreds of movies with nearly 900 people. My guests have included artists, authors, musicians, actors, scientists, doctors, chefs, filmmakers, explorers, veterinarians, comedians, cartoonists, psychologists, surgeons, circus clowns, directors, radio hosts, ex-cons, exhookers, ex-ministers and various members of my own family. I saw Clint Eastwood’s In the Line of Fire with writer Sam Keen (men’s movement leader and author of Fire in the Belly), saw the WWII flick Paradise Road with singer Joan Baez (and taught her how to sing the lyrics of “Amazing Grace” to the tune of “Gilligan’s Island”) and saw the suburban teen comedy Dazed and Confused

I was in the first generation of people who were able to own our own movies, on VHS, right, before the invention of DVDs. Before that, you had to go to the theaters, or wait for the movie you love to be broadcast on television. But now we can see movies 24/7, any movie we want—even on our phones.”

London. He studied at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and befriended calypso singer and civil-rights activist Harry Belafonte. In 1967, he scored a Top 20 hit with a jazz-pop cover of the Fifth Dimension’s confection “Up, Up and Away.” That same year he joined Jimi Hendrix, the Who, Janis Joplin and other rock elite at the landmark Monterey Pop Festival, leading a hard-driving, funk- and jazz-grooving Afro-pop band that was far removed from his pop image. In the hit single “Monterey,” a psychedelic tribute to the fest, Animals singer Eric Burdon paid homage to the heavily African-influenced performance noting, “Hugh Mas-e-ke-la’s music was” “I had graduated from the Whiskey A-Go-Go,” Masekela explains, during a cell phone interview from a noisy tour bus driving from Detroit to Atlanta. “I already had a big rock following because of my friendships with David Crosby and Steve Stills and all of those people

[Masekela’s trumpet can be heard on the Byrds’ “So You Want to Be a Rock and Roll Star”]. The audience just kept increasing.” But the success of “Grazing in the Grass,” which knocked the Rolling Stones’ “Jumping Jack Flash” out of the top spot on the Billboard singles chart, caught the classically trained trumpeter by surprise. “It was a big hit—a phenomenal song. It definitely wasn’ t planned,” he says with a laugh. “I was young and to a certain extent reckless, and it put me smack dab into a world I didn’t know. “Certainly, it brought me a major audience all over the world.” Though the U.S. hits eventually dried up, Masekela continued to tour and record, refining his “township bop” and releasing the highly regarded 1972 jazz album Home Is Where the Music Is and 1975’s underrated The Boy’s Doin’ It, an electrifying blend of jazz, funk and Afro-pop. He regained international acclaim with 1987’s “Bring Him Back Home,” a defiant plea for the release of South African political prisoner Nelson Mandela. The song came to Masekela after Mandela sent a birthday greeting from his prison cell on Robben Island off the Cape mainland. “I was living in Botswana and he was encouraging me in everything I was doing,” he marvels. “I was blown away that somebody who had been in prison so long could think about someone on the outside. “I went to the piano and started singing the song—it just came to me. My wife walked up to me and said, ‘I don’t know that song. When did you write it?’ I told her, ‘I didn’t write it—Nelson Mandela just sent it to me.’” Following Mandela’s 1990 release, the song was used as the theme for the human rights icon’s world lecture tour. Masekela’s friendship with Mandela extends back to his childhood. Mandela and his then-wife, Winnie, had known Masekela’s family long before Mandela’s involvement in the anti-apartheid campaign. Masekela’s mother helped train Winnie as a social worker and the couples socialized frequently and maintained close contact. Masekela’s sister, Barbara, served as Mandela’s chief of staff from the time of his release from jail until 1994 when he became president of South Africa. As president, Mandela, a former ballroom dancer, often invited Hugh Masekela and other artists to lunch. “He liked to talk about the old days,” Masekela 24 >

‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude...’ Lincoln is more about the 13th Amendment than the man, and that’s all to the good, since a Spielberg treatment of a national hero wouldn’t really suit the mood. In fact the movie starts to slow whenever it veers into powerhouse Daniel Day-Lewis’ monologues, which is a lot, but this story has one great redeeming feature—horse trading—that lifts it above all the Honest Abe turns on the ol’ charm... smoky window silhouettes and keeps things barreling right along. Central to the amendment’s passage, we learn, is a jobs-for-votes scheme targeting the House’s lame-duck Democrats, who have no hope of future office in a reunited Union. With a peace delegation making its way north and a weary Congress looking for any excuse to stop the war, Lincoln seeks to delay—staking everything on a long-shot bid to ratify his amendment before Reconstruction so the South can never pass slavery again. Flanked by advisers who are more pragmatic (Hal Holbrook’s Francis Preston Blair), more honorable (Tommy Lee Jones’ Thaddeus Stevens) and sometimes even more powerful than he, Abe has to thread the needle and guide a near-suicidal piece of legislation to ratification. (A model for Obama with the public option? He has the numbers too.)—Richard Gould

MIND & BODY HYPNOTHERAPY 1 year old neutered male Pit Bull mix. This very sweet young pit bull named Hawkeye was found wandering the streets, hungry and underweight. He is all that a nice Pit Bull should be – friendly, affectionate and gentle. He’s a little shy when meeting new people, but comes around when approached gently with a soft voice and touch. Enrolling him in a training class will help him gain confidence and really cement the bond with his new family. Hawkeye met several dogs here and although he appears to prefer the company of people, he does enjoy a good play session with another appropriate dog. With just the right home, Hawkeye will be a great ambassador for his breed. Available for Adoption at the Marin Humane Society

I was seeing a guy for four months—a guy I liked better than I’ve ever liked anyone. Two months in, he was calling me his girlfriend, putting me on the phone with his mom, and saying that I shouldn’t look to be dating other people. Yet, I noticed that he remained on the dating website we met on and was checking in there daily. I asked him whether he was seeing other girls on the site, and he said, “Only a friend I work with and she is older anyway.” When I’d ask whether he was sleeping with other girls, he’d always say no. Well, he left his email open on my computer, and I searched it and discovered he’d been contacting several women daily on the dating site and sleeping with at least one other woman. I contacted her and told her he’s contacting numerous other women so she’d know he’s a sociopath, a sex addict, a liar and a cheat. Now I’m thinking about warning other women he’s contacted. Is that crazy?—Badly Betrayed


We all want to believe—in the tooth fairy and talking dogs, that Santa got to the mall on his airborne sleigh and not the bus after his car got impounded for DUIs. Sticking to your preferred version of reality works when you’re 6. At 26 or 36, it tends to end badly. You, for example, tried to ignore the wildly obvious: A guy isn’t logging in at a dating site daily because his mouse gets lost on the way to the sports scores. Eventually, reality popped up to ask you, “Am I really going to have to bite you?” So, you asked the guy whether he was seeing anybody from the site, and he said, “Only a friend I work with.” Note that this was not a no. To a woman seeking the truth, it sounds like what it was—a truth-flavored lie. But, determined as you were to keep believing you’d found your Mr. Husband, you cut up all the red flags and did a remarkable job repurposing them into throw pillows. The fact that your suspicions finally got too big and stanky to ignore didn’t give you the right to plow through the guy’s email—the techno-quivalent of breaking in to his house and reading all his mail. People are entitled to privacy. Even scummy people. Even scummy people who are sleeping with you. If a guy’s level of sharing doesn’t match your need to know, find the door—not an opportune moment to go all Nancy Drew on his Gmail. Railing about what a bad guy your ex is and contacting every woman he ever said “’sup?” to on some dating site is a great idea, as it will keep you far too busy to admit that you made it possible for him to skeeve you. (Your not wanting to know coincided rather neatly with his wanting to keep his options open.) You can’t control whether somebody lies to you. You can only control whether you do—and whether you treat reality like the 50-foot brick wall it is or pretend, for as long as you can, that it comes with an elastic waistband like fat men’s pants.


I’m back in college in hopes of changing careers, and I’m interested in a woman I’ve become friendly with in one of my classes. Our schedules rarely seem to mesh, so it’s been difficult for me to find a time to express my feelings. In fact, there’s never an appropriate time to ask her out due to other students always being present. Still, I think it would be a shame not to let her know that somebody really cares for her.—Continuing Ed


There are sometimes great barriers to two people coming together—warring nations, conflicting religions, violent family feuds and other students seated in nearby desks. You’re taking college classes, which suggests your problem-solving ability exceeds that of most boiled vegetables. This, in turn, suggests you could figure out the obvious solution: Pull this woman aside and ask her out. But maybe what you’re most interested in is a convenient excuse for spending the rest of the semester staring at the back of her head while drawing little hearts in a notebook, allowing you to feel connected to her without risking rejection. The problem is this can cause your feelings to fester—to the point where you have such a huge one-sided relationship with her that you become unable to speak to her without seeming creepy. If you do want to date her, ask her out now, before “Wanna knock a few back at Kelly’s bar?” comes off like “You know, you’d look really pretty chained to my cabin wall.” < © Amy Alkon, all rights reserved.
