››LETTERS Better to be silent and thought a fool than write the editor and remove all doubt In regards to Marcia Blackman’s letter [“That Moat Will Require an EIR, Ma’am...” March 15], vilifying the “scumbags” who have come into the county since she moved here 40 years ago: Dear Marcia, I have been here 61 years. That makes you one of the scumbags that have ruined my once peaceful and wonderful county. What have you done for Marin? You seem to have a lot of time on your hands to write blowhard letters, (ad nauseum), bitching about everything you deem unworthy. Your use of the term DemoCRAP is ignorant and childish. I, for one, will never complain about the Sun giving you so much ink; it amuses me to see an insignificant, self-righteous woman such as yourself prove her ineptitude with so few words. Please keep it up. I need a good chuckle now and then. John Cross, Tiburon

Sorry, John, but you asked for it... I thought the purpose of having a tax-funded community college here was for the benefit of students who wanted a higher education—not for the benefit of the good old boys’ relatives and friends who received huge sums of money from the College of Marin Trustees under the guise of “professional services” and “administrative expenses.” President David Coon called it “misspent and improperly used student program funds”; most of the taxpayers might call it “idiotic/irresponsible and possibly criminal”....with no one ever responsible for seeing that the money

went to the students—and not spent on bulls--t. I salute David Coon for putting lipstick on the pig; I salute him with my middle finger. And as for Ann Hill (the former foundation board president) who thinks “people should get down on their knees and thank the board for spending money to get the mess straightened out”....I am on my knees so you’ll just have to bend down lower to kiss my butt. Marcia Blackman, San Rafael (former COM student)

Some people are like that. Martin Russell, Mill Valley

White John and brown Barbara Brown. Wow! Heaven on earth. A boy and a girl. Meeting on a beautiful Village evening. Barbara and Virginia went home. And I went home. To 540 Hudson Street. (Isn’t that a gas station? It is. Eddie let me sleep in the cars that parked there.) Barbara and John got together. Walking around her wonderful neighborhood. Dancing in her living room. Walking to her mother and father. Or, necking and touching each other. In Riverside Park. And, on her living room couch. 1959 was a giddy time in the Village. MacDougall Street. Jim Atkins. The kettle of fish. The park. Turk and Mary just back from Mexico. Bill Quinn. Barbara Turner, my buddy. As Turk would say, wow. Classes at HB with the greatest actress and the greatest woman, Irene Dailey. God, do I love you, Irene. January 1961 was the last time I saw Barbara Brown. I was sleeping in the subway. (Didn’t pay my rent at the Albert Hotel.) I went by her house and we talked. She said she was getting married. Well. Some lucky guy. Now, she is the girl I always think of. What might have been. John Van Koppen, San Rafael

A sequel 40 years in the making! I had a poem published in the Pacific Sun in the early ’70s, “Remembering Maria, Part 1.” Here is another poem for you to consider, “Miss Barbara Brown”: We met in a doorway next to Rienzi’s. May 1959. Then, with her girlfriend Virginia, we walked up to Washington Square Park. Virginia sat down on a bench, and we laid down on the grass. Kissing and rolling on each other. Happy. Groovy. Twenty-year-old me and 16-year-old Barbara. Me from Paterson, New Jersey, and she from Edgecombe Avenue. In NYC. A delicious Oreo cookie.

We’re drawing a blanc on this one... Why do stores only sell red wine vinegar in 4 ounce bottles? Are they afraid it might turn into Chateau Mouton if it isn’t used fast enough? Carlo V. Gardin, Fairfax

Because it’s harder to be indignant when you’re well-informed... It’s too bad the recent contributors to the Letters page—who were roused to indignation by Joanne Williams’s article [“Johnny Got His Gun,” March 15], about the young man, John Walker Lindh, from Marin who became a Muslim—didn’t bother to read the article before blowing their tops. As the article told us, John Walker Lindh converted in all sincerity to one of the world’s three great religions, one to which millions of patriotic Americans belong. He traveled to a Muslim country not to renounce his own country but to learn Arabic and study the Koran. His parents respected his decision and continue to do so. Lindh’s mistake was to join the Taliban in their fight against the warlords who were terrorizing the countryside with extortion and rape. But he had no way of knowing the U.S. would take revenge against Al Qaeda by going to war against the Taliban or that the warlords would become our allies despite their record of brutality. Finally, if the letter writers have evidence that Lindh was “complicit in the murder of a CIA agent,” or “was “prepared to fight the U.S. armed forces,” let’s have it. Rachelle Marshall, Mill Valley

infamous 19th-century Irish playwright, poet and wit. While some San Francisco gays are advocating to rename the airport “Harvey Milk Airport,” Milk is a decidedly obscure figure from a national and international perspective. Oscar Wilde, however, is an important and compelling personality. Imprisoned for two years for “gross indecency with other men,” Wilde suffered and endured a lot for his belief in gay rights. Also renaming San Francisco Airport as a tribute to Oscar Wilde would appeal to antigays as well as pro-gays; not everyone likes gay rights, but everyone enjoys a witty epigram. Wilde penned many famous quotations before he died, in poverty, at the age of 46. Beatrice Portinari, San Rafael

We were thinking of a different bodily function... Reading my letters is like masturbation: Everyone does it, but no one will admit it! Craig Whatley, San Rafael

Hey, at least they’ll be near a hospital when you hit them... Bon Air Road stretches from Sir Francis Drake to Magnolia in Larkspur. There are four crosswalks from east to west, yet NONE is located near Marin General Hospital. Crossing Bon Air Rd to get to either the hospital or the Bay Club or the new park is hazardous to both pedestrians and vehicles. The county says they have no money, the hospital says they are going to do a rebuild soon, Supervisor Katie Rice says it’s not her job, [Larkspur mayor] Len Rifkind says it’s out of his jurisdiction. So here we are a year later and nothing has been done. I live on South Eliseo Drive (over 35 years), have almost hit two pedestrian jaywalkers that popped out in front of me from the median, this year. Maybe I should buy the paint and go out in the middle of the night and paint the crosswalk myself? Joel Cohen, Greenbrae

An atypically quite moment along the gauntlet.

‘We are all in gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars’–Oscar Wilde I propose that the San Francisco Airport be renamed “Oscar Wilde Airport” after that

Plastic bag ban inflating in Sacto Assembly bill would pull the ties on big grocery, pharmacy retailers by Pe te r S e id m an

A

dvocates of single-use plastic bag bans are hopeful about a bill introduced by Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael. Levine’s bill would create a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags in large grocery stores and pharmacies. It’s one of the first pieces of legislation Levine, a former San Rafael city councilman, worked on after taking his seat in Sacramento representing Marin. It’s not the first time a state legislator has introduced a bill to ban plastic bags. Levine’s legislation is similar to legislation former Ventura County Assemblywoman Julia Brownley carried in 2010 and 2011. Her legislation failed to pass by a narrow margin after strong opposition from the plastics industry and bag manufacturers. The failure stalled the move to create a statewide law to ban single-use plastic bags. The failure in Sacramento, however, did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm among cities and counties across the state to ban single-use plastic bags. More than 70 cities and counties in the state now have singleuse bag ordinances in place. Although some jurisdictions have rejected bag bans, the total number of entities passing bans has been climbing. The move to pass local single-use bag bans is a case of taking action on the local level when Sacramento fails to move on a comprehensive plan. The number of local ordinances is evidence that the time

may have come for a statewide ban, say advocates. And according to Levine, positive reaction to his proposed legislation underscores that point, although there are opponents. Levine’s bill, which has several co-authors, passed through the Assembly Natural Resources Committee, its first hurdle on a long way to possible passage. “The conversation has progressed in California,” says Levine. “We now have jurisdictions that have created a patchwork quilt of bans throughout the state. And now fully onethird of Californians live in these jurisdictions.” The political dialogue espoused by supporters of a statewide ban has focused on the relative success of the bans in local jurisdictions. “Now,” says Levine, “we can do something for the environment statewide. (State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Pacoima, has introduced a bill similar to Levine’s legislation.) Levine’s legislation, AB 158, calls for grocery stores with more than $2 million in annual sales and retailers with more than 10,000 square feet of floor space that include pharmacy or grocery sales to stop using single-use plastic takeout bags at checkout stands. The ban would exempt bags used to hold produce and bags that contain prescriptions. Those two exceptions are written into bag bans across the sate, including the one Marin County adopted in January 2012. Fairfax banned plastic bags in 2008 10 >

Hospital gets seismic extension; will there be voter aftershocks? Marin General Hospital is out of seismic-upgrade critical condition for the time being, as the state has granted the hospital district a 10-year deadline extension to earthquake proof the Greenbrae complex. A state reassessment of the seismic risk found that the the hospital could withstand the event of an earthquake; MGH now has until 2030 to meet state seismic requirements. The seemingly good news doesn’t come without tremors for the district, as officials gear up for a campaign to win voter support this November for a $350 million bond measure to construct a $500 million seismically enhanced facility. The environmental impact report on the project will go before the Marin Healthcare District Board in May. What effect, if any, the delay in the deadline for a new building will have on voters remains to be seen; if the bond is approved, property owners would pay $15 to $25 per $100,000 value. Libraries welcome new chief ‘shusher’ Former Nevada State library director Sara Jones was appointed director of the Marin County Free Library by the Marin County Board of Supervisors on April 16. The current director of the Carson City library, Jones begins her new role in Marin on July 8. Jones’ starting salary will be $150,134. A longtime resident of Nevada, Jones is completing the final stages of a Ph.D. in library science from the University of North Texas. She leaves a relatively small staff of 55 library employees in Carson City to a team of nearly 200 and a budget of $16 million in her role as the new director. Fielding Greaves, tax watchdog, dies at 90 Fielding Lewis Greaves, one of the county’s most vocal and determined tax watchdogs, died Monday following a long battle with myodysplatic syndrome, an illness similar to leukemia. He was 90. Born in Norfolk, Virginia, in 1923, Greaves followed in his WWI-veteran father’s footsteps, serving as a second lieutenant in WWII and seeing action against German infantry in France. Upon retirement from the service in the mid-1960s, Greaves worked part-time in films, landing bit roles—as a cardinal in Shoes of the Fisherman, with Anthony Quinn; as an officer in Patton and as a Soviet spy in the TV show It Takes a Thief. In more recent decades, San Rafael resident Greaves was the most prominent member of the Marin United Taxpayers Association, a group that keeps a keen eye on how local, state and federal dollars are spent—often preferring the dollars not be spent at all. Greaves was the longtime president of MUTA, which formed in 1976 during the debate over the Jarvis-Gann property-tax-limiting initiative, known by Californians today as Prop. 13. Though MUTA’s influence on the generally more progressive Marin voter was limited, Greaves was a thoughtful, if at times terse, voice for the county’s fiscally conservative. His frequency in the Pacific Sun’s letters to the editor page was a testament to both his vociferousness and his brevity—as well as the flabbergasted response letters he typically elicited. In a 2007 story about MUTA, Greaves had this to say about his and organization’s legacy: “Contrary to popular belief, MUTA is not opposed to all taxes. But when called upon by overtaxed citizens for help, we tend to pick up our lance and shield and mount up for the fight [to defend] property owners from overzealous, overreaching government taxing and spending agencies and their sometimes rapacious practices.” Greaves is survived by his wife, Jean, and sons Steve and Jim Greaves (eldest son, 10

WA man attempting to run across Highway 101 near North San Pedro Road was struck by two cars and pronounced dead at the scene last Tuesday night. The first driver remained at the accident site and waited for the authorities. Unfortunately, the second driver fled. We don’t claim to understand the magnitude of fear and emotional trauma suffered by the motorists involved in this incident; however, there is no excuse—legally or morally—for not pulling over. If you’re the MIA driver, we encourage you to contact the Cali Highway Patrol. In the meantime, fornia the CHP is investigating the accident and asking witnesses to call 707-551-4100. The second vehicle is a silver or gray sedan and will likely have damage to the front end. — Nikki Silverstein

VLast week, the California Highway Patrol honored the officers and firefighters who saved a Tiburon man’s life. Leonard Sellers, 68, was enjoying his coffee at the Taste of Rome Cafe in Sausalito last October when he suffered a massive heart attack. Fortunately for Sellers, CHP officers Burrage and Nispuruk were taking a coffee break at the cafe. They immediately radioed for help and began CPR on the unconscious man with no pulse. Firefighters soon arrived and restarted his heart with a defibrillator. Sellers was then rushed to Marin General Hospital, where he fully recovered from his ordeal. The Southern Marin firefighters honored were Capt. Mike Martinez, Capt. Josh McHugh, Jeff Chance, Peter Falk, Joe Frazier, Toby Hart, Tim Pratt, Benjamin Pope and Larry Yoell.

< 8 Plastic bag ban inflating Sacto in all retail outlets and restaurants after residents passed a ban with a 79-percent majority vote. Several other California cities have passed bag bans that affect all retailers. Fairfax took a bag ban to a vote to sidestep threatened legal action aimed at stopping the bag ban using alleged violations of the California Environmental Quality Act rules that call for an environmental impact report. Levine’s bill would start a statewide ban in 2015. Stores would provide free recycled paper bags that contain at least 40 percent postconsumer recycled material though July 2016. Small paper bags could have 20 percent recycled content. After 2016, stores could charge for paper bags-and that “could” is a sticking point for bag-ban advocates who believe that charging for bags is a crucial element in preventing single-use bags from polluting the environment. Paper bags are in many ways more polluting than plastic bags. Paper bags use more energy and water to produce, and they are not easily degraded in landfills. The goal of most bag-ban proponents is aimed at banning all take-out bags. The Marin County bag-ban ordinance mandates that stores charge at least 5 cents per bag if customers fail to bring their own. The vague language concerning a charge for bags if customers fail to bring their own is a point Carol Misseldine raised with Levine recently. She is a former Mill Valley sustainability coordinator. She also is the director of Green Cities California. That organization created a model bag-ban ordinance and a master environmental assessment to help local cities contemplating local bag bans. The documents are like boilerplate that cities can use to tailor their own specific laws. Misseldine was married to Supervisor Charles McGlashan (who died suddenly in 2011), viewed single-use bag bans as a priority. Misseldine says Levine told her the language about the bag charge is deliberately vague at this stage. “He said they were keeping it vague now as a strategy, but there would be a fee.” Misseldine told Levine a 10-cent fee works the best to discourage customers from using singleuse bags. She says that a 10-cent fee yields about an 80 percent reduction in single-bag use. A 5-cent fee yields “about a 45-percent change.” Members of Green Cities California are in wait-and-see mode. “We haven’t signed on to it because we need to see the details,” says Misseldine. “We are heartened to see,” she adds, “that it looks like it would not pre-empt local ordinances.” Levine says his legislation is designed to allow local ordinances, some of which could be more stringent than the statewide legislation, to remain intact. “There also are concerns that [the statewide ordinance] won’t affect as many stores as some of the local ordinances” because of the size parameters written 10 PACIFIC SUN APRIL 19 - APRIL 25, 2013

into the Levine bill. “That’s why we are particularly keen that it not preempt more aggressive local efforts,” says Misseldine. “We certainly believe that there should be a statewide solution to this problem. Even getting it in more than 70 jurisdictions is not as powerful as getting it statewide.” Although a statewide single-use bag ban would be advantageous, Misseldine says, “those jurisdictions that have stepped up to the plate and are really addressing this issue in a comprehensive manner” need continued support. Because plastic bags are ubiquitous and light, they account for much of the litter that ends up in the environment, according to Californians Against Waste. (Bangladesh was the first country to ban single-use plastic bans. That country took action because the bags blew through the landscape and clogged irrigation channels.) Industry spokespeople say the rate of recycling for plastic bags is much higher than bag-ban proponents claim. But those proponents point to the California program to recycle bags at grocery stores. Even with the bag-return program, they say, most plastic bags get thrown into the trash or escape into the environment. According to Californians Against Waste, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates that California spends $412 million each year to prevent litter from the land polluting the ocean. Using data from San Jose and Los Angeles County, Californians Against Waste estimates that between 8 percent to 25 percent of that cost can be attributed to plastic bags. And it’s not breaking news that plastic bags are part of the garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean that is circulating in a never-ending gyre. Although the bags account for a small proportion of the plastic garbage in the gyre, they present a clear danger (pun intended) to marine animals that mistake the bags for jellyfish and consume them. Given the nature of the problem, why would Levine restrict his legislation to relatively large stores and exclude most retail establishments? Political reality restricts the type of retail establishment the bill would affect. Stores that have a grocery section or a pharmacy would fall under the bill’s mandate, and that includes more than stores that sell only groceries and pharmacy merchandise. It also would affect big-box outlets like Walmart and Target. But it would not include stores like Macy’s or Nordstrom because they do not sell groceries and pharmacy merchandise. When McGlashan worked on bag-ban legislation, his hope was that eventually a countywide bag ban in Marin would extend to all retail outlets. “We wanted to make sure we are as inclusive as possible of businesses that use plastic bags and make sure that chain stores and big-box stores will follow the law,” says Levine. “But we also want to make sure that we are able to cobble together the votes of [Legislature] mem-

bers who are concerned about impacts on mom-and-pop stores, which give out far fewer of these bags than large retailers.” The problem in past efforts to pass bag-ban legislation, says Levine, “has been making sure the votes are in place to make sure a bill can be passed. We’re trying to build consensus to effect the broadest number of stores possible that the political will [to act] is behind while leaving local ordinances in place.” The subtext there is that if a local jurisdiction wants to enact a bag-ban law more stringent than Levine’s statewide measure, it would be free to move in that direction. A host of environmental organizations have signed on in support of the Levine legislation. Two groups so far have stated their opposition: the American Forest and Paper Association and the Association of California Cities in Orange County. In a letter to Assemblyman Wesley Chesbro, chairman of the Natural Resources Committee, the Association states, “AB 158 would prohibit grocery retailers from distributing thin plastic bags.... After the ban goes into effect, affected retailers will have to sell paper bags or re-useable bags to customers. After 18 months, retailers would have to provide only reusable bags.” That roundup of the proposed legislation is accurate and encapsulates the objection. “This will cost retailers a significant amount of time and money, as our economy slowly emerges from the worst recession in recent history.” The letter ends with an admonition that the role of the state and the Association

should be confined to supporting “the rights and abilities of cities to do what is best for their communities.” It’s a local control argument that stakes a position that if a municipality decides it does not want a bag ban, the state should not force one on it. Levine has a different perspective on a statewide single-use bag ban. “It gives people a sense of security that they have a law to follow, and they don’t need to worry about the plastics industry threatening a lawsuit, which has been a huge problem for many cities and counties. Of course, opponents could wind up suing the state should Levine’s bill pass. Bag-ban opponents say the unintended consequences of the bans include lost revenue at stores required to follow bans. They also say recycling plastic bags can be a better strategy than banning them. But proponents of the ban say potential negative effects are fleeting, people get used to bringing their own bags when they shop-and they even get used to washing their cloth bags. That last is a response to a charge that bag bans promote health hazards because people use cloth bags that become contaminated. The pushback against bag bans remains alive in California, but during the last few years proponents have become increasingly optimistic. “It’s night and day,” says Misseldine about the changing attitudes toward bag bans. She adds that “all modesty aside,” Green Cities California made a big contribution in moving the ball toward the bag-ban goal. < Contact the writer at peter@pseidman.com

Golden Gate transit shuts down WiFi The wheels on the bus will be going ‘round and ‘round without free WiFi, as the Golden Gate Transit Authority announced last week that it was shutting down its free internet service. According to the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, internet on the 120 buses throughout Marin was just too unreliable. The WiFi, which had been costing GGT roughly $6,000 per month, has been increasingly spotty, due in part to the hilly terrain that the buses travel through north of the Golden Gate. The wireless was set up in 2011, to the tune of $245,00; GGT hopes to find a solution, possibly in the form of a 4G system upgrade. Golden Gate Transit officials are hoping to have bus riders surfing the web again by the end of the year. — Dani Burlison ‘Move over, Marin!’ says Caltrans... Commuters should take a little extra caution this week as Caltrans employees are out in full force, installing “Move Over” signs along Highway 101. “We’re asking motorists to slow down, watch out for highway workers and CHP, and safely move over a lane when they see flashing amber lights on Caltrans or other emergency vehicles,” says Caltrans director Malcolm Dougherty. An increasing number of casualties on California freeways have occurred as emergency personnel are struck by traffic. In 2007, the Move Over law was instituted, adding Caltrans vehicles to the list of emergency vehicles to watch out for in 2008. The 700 existing highway safety signs will also display the Move Over message to drivers, reminding them that law requires these safety measures. According to Caltrans officials, highway construction and maintenance work is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. Since the 1920s, 178 Caltrans employees have died while on the job.— DB

PLANET-LOVIN’ EVENT TO RAISE UP A STORM OVER CLIMATE CHANGE

M

arin, the land of milk and honey— and, er... environmentalism? We’d sure like to think so! For decades Marin has been an innovator, or followed closely on the heels of innovations, in the environmental movement. But even in Marin, change is slow. As a county, we may be gradually moving toward that utopian dream of a green lifestyle but, in many ways, we’re dragging our feet—our very large carbonfootprinting feet. We’ve got land preserves and protected open space. We’ve had Green Party city councils and passionate sustainability groups. We’re biking more, greening our energy consumption and toting our reusable bags to the shops. There’s no place more willing to do the small things for the planet-but what about the big things—the lifestyle-changing things? Take climate change, for instance. It’s a problem of which Marinites—a highly educated, earth-loving crowd if there ever was one—are quite conscious. So why, in the name of all that is green and good in the world, is everyone still driving so much? Why are huge new homes being built? What is up with people purchasing products that are shipped from across the planet, wrapped in plastic and weighed down with the heavy cost of massive carbon emissions? It’s enough to make one question whether we’re taking climate change seriously. Shouldn’t we be taking a more active role in cooling down the planet? Earth Day Marin organizer Hannah Doress sure thinks so, which is why she’s realigned this year’s planet-fest in a more pointed direction. “I think we would all like to make positive changes and make a difference,” says Doress. “But it’s very hard for the average person to know what to do, particularly in our overtapped, over-worked lives.” To that end Doress has tilted the scales of the raise-awareness12 PACIFIC SUN APRIL 19 - APRIL 25, 2013

and-take-action event a little more toward the takeaction side. Doress, an event organizer who has been working on Earth Day Marin since its launch in 2009, has switched gears for 2013. In addition to the usual environmentally focused information and a feel good entertainment lineup, Doress and her team have created a program to offer on-site activities and clear information about how we, as individuals, can address climate change. Since the inaugural Earth Day Marin, Doress says she’s been looking for a way to make it an action-oriented event. “I want to help people efficiently and effectively make changes. I think one thing that is really critical for anyone out there that cares about environmental issues is climate change,” says Doress. “It presents a paradigm shift.” And so this year’s Earth Day celebration comes with a greater sense of immediacy than previous years. Focus 2013: climate change. “Climate change has different parameters than our past way of looking at sustainability so it’s really urgent that people get educated about it,” she says. “We’re not going to lie and say there aren’t problems, we’re going to address the problems and continually go back to the solutions.” Concern about the environment should include and transcend the quick-fix solutions of recycling and cleaning up litter from our streets and our water ways. The current state of the planet has also moved well beyond Reagan-era concerns over the ozone layer and acid rain. As Doress points out, climate change involves different parameters than

previous environmental crises, and they can feel horribly complex and overwhelming to the average person. To bring it down to earth, in a manner of speaking, Earth Day Marin 2013 will feature a lineup of climate change experts, including local climate change educator Dr. Peter Joseph. A local emergency physician and cofounder of the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility, Joseph was trained by Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project in 2007 and has since become the project’s district manager for Northern California. A mentor to new project presenters, Joseph delivers news about climate change with a factual, easy-to-understand, actionbased approach. First and foremeost, Joseph says, we need to understand that it’s an inherently unstable system that “humans are messing with.” “Earth’s climate has changed many times in the past and will flip into whatever state it is pushed, and because it has built-in [natural laws], once certain tipping points are reached, the climate will careen out of our control,” says Joseph. “In other words, it will be too late to reverse changes once they’ve been locked in, like a missile that cannot be recalled after its launch.” Humans have never faced such a situation, he adds. “We are behaving as if we will be able to fix the problem when it gets bad enough. Climatologists understand that by then it will not be fixable.” There’s one area in which Joseph agrees

with global-warming deniers—and that’s that climate-science predictions have been wrong. Except in Joseph’s eyes, “they have been too conservative.” He says impacts once thought to be due in the year 2100 are happening today, such as an ice-free summer Arctic. The pace of both climate change and its understanding is quickening, he says, yet we still have “obstructive politicians” who deny the facts, backed up by vested interests who have much to lose if the government takes serious climate action. “We are in a race against time, and time is not on our side,” says Joseph. “Climate change is unlike any other issue that humans have faced because we are dealing with nature, and nature obeys only the laws of physics, chemistry and biology. Nature does not negotiate or surrender, nor does nature care whether humans live here or not. Mass extinction is no big deal for nature. If we wipe out biodiversity, and with it ourselves, it will return within just 10 million years or so. We are so smart. We can do better.” Nature may not care if the earth’s nearly 7 billion inhabitants drive themselves into extinction, but it may be safe to assume that most of those 7 billion would like to stick around, watch their children grow up, plant gardens, swim in unpolluted water that isn’t rising up and flooding our coasts. But with these drastic projections about the planet’s health looming on the horizon, it may be that Marin isn’t ready for the drastic measures we may need to engage in to save ourselves. Are we in denial or are we just too overwhelmed to take on one more change that may or may not make a difference? Joseph doesn’t believe Marinites are in denial—he points to our willingness to purchase insurance for earthquakes, floods, mudslides and wildfires as evidence of our precaution to natural threats.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there are two problems with global climate change that make it different,â&#x20AC;? says Joseph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s global, so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see most of it with our own eyes. Out of sight, out of mind. And second, is also that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s globalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;so many people feel overwhelmed by its scale and complexity, feeling that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have an impact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure many of us have changed light bulbs, lowered thermostats, turned off the lights, taken shorter showers and when possible have bought more efďŹ cient vehicles. But with afďŹ&#x201A;uence comes opportunity, so we ďŹ&#x201A;y

I

was all set to write another story, one I had been researching and musing over for days, but I was swept away by what can only be described as spring fever. It was the way everything exploded in our landscape, almost overnight; trees were suddenly completely leafed out, the hillsides covered with wildflowers, our gardens exuberant. All I could think about were flavors and textures at their best right now. Green was what I wanted: tender plants, tastes bitter as well as mild, and foods perfect at this time of year. I fantasized about gathering them myself in the woods or fields, remembering when I did just that. I learned from my grandfather which leaves and stems were safe to chew (or more importantly, which were not), sourgrass and peppergrass and wild mint. Later I learned from books like Stalking the Wild Asparagus, by Euell Gibbons, one of the first and most authoritative back-to-nature guides, published in 1962. Collecting old cookbooks from other times I discovered ways to use ingredients from beyond the backyard. Living in Manhattan made foraging impossible; happily summers found us in vacation houses. On the tip of Long Island my kids and I found blackberries growing in the woods. I taught them to crush the leaves of sassafras trees and smell their root beer scent, or chew the wintergreen leaves of the Eastern wildflower, pipsissewa. Toward the end of the season when beach plums ripened on the edges of dunes I gathered those and made dark, tart jam. Two summers on the big mesa in Bolinas in the late sixties led to hunting for more than blackberriesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I picked elderberries for dusky jam, watercress by a spring way up on a hill where the water was safe, bay leaves and fennel seeds to dry for my winter kitchen in New York. And I have to admit that one of the things that drew me to the house we eventually bought in Mill Valley was the discovery of minerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lettuce growing next to a redwood grove. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m restless, yearning for wild tastes. These days I can fulfill my fantasy without going far. Many of our markets offer produce once available only in uncultivated places. And I have just the right cookbook to use. I cherish Honey From A Weed by Patience Gray, a work described in her obituary as combining cookery, folklore and learning in â&#x20AC;&#x153;a disconcerting and inimitable manner.â&#x20AC;? A strongminded British artist/scholar, Gray went off in middle age to the Mediterranean with her lover, Norman Mommens. (Throughout the book she refers to him only as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Sculptor.â&#x20AC;?) Remote places where they chose to live (cheaply) had few conveniences but plenty of atmosphere peopled with fabulous characters.

After moving from Spain to Greece to Italy they settled in 1970 in Apulia, at the tip of Italy. Her writing about these years circles around the simplest of foods and how they were gathered, grown, raised and cooked, narrative-style recipes accompanied by stories of neighborsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;shepherds, hermits, eccentric nobles, artists and crafty countrywomen who lived off the land. The book is a cult classic, and it is still in print. In order to find some ideas for satisfying my longing for spring foods I went to that source. I love opening the heavy book at any page to read the strong prose and lose myself in one of the adventures, imagining the rough wine, olive oil, rustic bread and tender plants. Try some of the recipes yourself. Look for the ingredients at farmers markets or independent grocers. --------In this first sample Gray describes how her artist prefers to eat the dish, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good suggestion for us in April when local goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk cheese is especially rich and delicious. Note: Use dark green leaves of celery in place of the herb, sedano.

Bietola da Orto (Spring beetroot) Spring is the time to acquire a bunch or two of little round beetroots. Boil them in salted water for 20 minutes, slip off their skins, and serve whole, dressed with olive oil, pepper and a thread of wine vinegar. They taste like fruit. Color: magenta, when grown in Tuscany. In Apulia a variety quite unknown further up â&#x20AC;&#x153;the bootâ&#x20AC;? is cultivated; it is a glorious pink and of a much finer texture. Prepared as above, but flavoured with the chopped leaves of sedano (green celery) and served with goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheese, in the Sculptorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion â&#x20AC;&#x153;a heavenly marriageâ&#x20AC;?. When Gray lived in Castelpoggio, above Carrara, she and the Sculptor lodged with La Dirce, a widow. She wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Foraging was her way of life...Going for a forage with Dirce was keeping an eye needled on opportunity; it was bearing in mind the specific needs of calf, hens, rabbits, the kitchen cauldron and her son Alfredo, who came back up from Carrara

at night. It also involved a kind of eager childish delight in the sudden springtime warmth, the breeze on the mountainside, the freedom of leaving the village.â&#x20AC;? Together they picked weeds as they went, sat in the grass to eat pine nuts from cones that dropped from the stone pines. When she gathered weeds Dirce used a penknife and cut plants along with parts of their roots, then stuffed them in a cloth inside her foraging sack. A tender large-leaved sorrel grows wild in Italy, appearing in vineyards and waste-places in late March. The cultivated variety is often found in produce sections here. This is how it is made into a soup.

Spaghettini coi Piselli (Fine spaghetti with peas) 14 ounces spaghettini 2 and 1/4 pounds new peas 3 and 1/2 ounces sweet butter 1 sweet white (spring) onion, finely chopped Salt Leaves of fresh mint (torn into strips, if large) Curls of butter

Shell the peas and blanch them in boiling water for 2 minutes. Strain, and reserve their liquor. Melt the butter slowly in a pan, then put in the chopped onion. Simmer for 5 minutes, then put in the peas, salt, mint leaves and a very little of the pea liquor.[Remove from the heat.] Boil the spaghettini rapidly in plenty of salted water for 4 or 5 minutes, strain and put into deep soup plates. Spoon the peas into the center of the pasta on each plate, with some of the sauce, and crown each center with a curl of butter. No parmesan with this. Grayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude when she finished Honey From A Weed in 1986 was prophetic: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The recipes in this book belong to an era of food grown for its own sake, not for profit. This era has vanished. If cooking and eating were all I had in mind when writing them down, the pleasure they might afford would be largely nostalgic.â&#x20AC;? What she took in through her experiences in those wild places, though, can quite possibly teach us to stop and appreciate the simpler ways, learning, as she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;...from people who have never read a book.â&#x20AC;?< Appreciate Pat at patfusco@sonic.net

T

his month brings the Jazz and Heritage Festival to New Orleans, with all its funk and flash...and foods. Tents operated by hometown nonprofits and churches sell everything from crab remoulade to dusky gumbo, oyster poâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boy sandwiches and steaming bowls of boiled crawfish with trimmings. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re as jealous as I am of those who will be there for all that, plan to get yourself to Larkspur on April 28 when Yankee Pier kicks off its own season of crawfish boils with a special event. Be there (2-6pm) when live zydeco music will be the background for handling crawfish cooked in a spicy boil and served with new potatoes, artichoke hearts, French bread with roasted garlic cloves and Abita beer, fresh from the Big Easy. Cost is $35 per person (exclusive of beverages, tax and gratuity). Crawfish boil will also be offered as a special menu item through May 4. Reservations: 415/924-7676.

All Panera venues use antibiotic-free chicken and turn out baked goods daily (unsold remainders are donated to local nonprofits). 415/897-1056...Chipotle Mexican Grill (Northgate Mall and Novato) has added a nonmeat choice to its menu with the introduction of soffritasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; shredded tofu combined with chiles and spices, that can be used in burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads. Local angle: all the tofu is made by Oaklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s respected producer, Hodo Soy...Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now possible to order up a big picnic-to-go for a crowd from the organic quick-service spot Blue Barn Gourmet in Corte Madera Town Center.

I think I’m the only connecting link with this lineup, having played with each of the other players, but I know that, personality wise, this is going to be as much fun for us as it will be for the listener.” For Gerken, the community aspect, creating a gathering of players and fans of acoustic-guitar music, is as rewarding as the music itself. “This show is a perfect example of this, as I’m able to connect three dear friends with whom I’ve played in various places around the world and who happen to be coming to where I’m based,” he says. < Connect with Greg at gcahill51@gmail.com

›› SPiNS of the Week Someday My Prince Will Come, ‘Round About Midnight, Milestones by Miles Davis (Columbia) In a harmonious convergence, 4/20 (aka the Great National Marijuana Smoke Out) and Record Store Day (the worldwide celebration of indie record stores) fall on the same day this year. To mark the latter event, these three landmark albums have been reissued as limited edition mono LPs pressed on audiophile-quality 180-gram vinyl. The first title is one of the jazz trumpet legend’s best ballad sessions; the second finds sax legend John Coltrane with Miles for the first time; and the third, Davis captures a powerhouse sextet with Coltrane and saxophone great Cannonball Adderley.

â&#x20AC;şâ&#x20AC;şSiNGLE iN THE SUBURBS

Smooth operator If this lube doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, at least I can use it in my banana bread... by Nik k i Silve r stein

W

hen scientists speak of the miracle of the human body, keep in mind they are referring exclusively to the male body. Someone fell asleep on the job during the female design phase. If I were a guy, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be gay. Seriously, what man in his right mind would willingly choose to deal with the horror of a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hormonal fluctuations and her ever-changing hoo ha? Lesbians are my heroes. They cope with vagina times two, while I barely adapt to my bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mid-life metamorphosis. I remember a column I wrote years ago about a dating event that I attended. The women were older and discussed the necessity for lubrication during intercourse. Not only was I bored, but I found myself completely unsympathetic to their plight. Clearly, such an unsexy condition would never happen to me. Wrong, as usual. Eight years later, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the drugstore examining little bottles of gooey stuff containing unnatural sounding ingredients. Though concerned about putting a potion with propylene glycol into my private place, I pick a concoction and bring it home for a try-out. Marginally helpful at best. I enlist Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help. Instead of going to the beach, we spend our entire afternoon Googling for remedies to what is commonly called â&#x20AC;&#x153;sandpaper sex.â&#x20AC;? The assortment is overwhelming and prices range from reasonable to outrageous. In a state of utter confusion, I look to the man who knows everything about my body, Dr. Oz. Silicone lubricants are the answer. Slippery, long-lasting and nonirritating, though synthetic and somewhat pricey. I return to the drugstore. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not one bottle of the stuff on the shelf. Another visit to Dr. Ozâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website indicates that an erotica store will carry a nice selection of silicone lubes. Rick isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keen on joining me for this sexpedition, claiming heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed at the volleyball court. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about sports, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m well aware thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no such thing as a volleyball emergency. I let him off the hook anyway, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a kind, giving person. This is where my girlfriend, X, comes in. (Regular readers of this column know her; however, she requests I hide her identity for this story.) We meet for breakfast on Saturday morning and I ask her if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to shop for lubricants later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should try coconut oil,â&#x20AC;? X says. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Y and I use.â&#x20AC;? I pepper her with questions. She heard about it from her neighbor, who swears

  by the stuff. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all natural and smells good too. Her doctor confirmed the oil is safe and effective. Trader Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Whole Foods carry it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inexpensive. What more could a perimenopausal woman desire? The following day, Rick and I go to Trader Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. My proper Japanese beau becomes embarrassed that other shoppers may think he engages in sex, so he wanders off. I stroll to the body products aisle. Soaps, moisturizers, scrubs and bath oils, but no coconut oil. Of course, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see every product, because a young clerk is stocking the shelves upon which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gazing. We get in each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way a couple of times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;May I help you find something?â&#x20AC;? he inquires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have coconut oil?â&#x20AC;? I ask. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have this lotion with coconut in it,â&#x20AC;? he responds, handing me a plastic bottle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No,â&#x20AC;? I say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for 100 percent coconut oil.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;For cooking?â&#x20AC;? I pause for a few beats. I thought it was for sex. It hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t occurred to me that you could use coconut oil for cooking. By now, the clerk is looking at me as if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surely the stupidest person heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s met in a long while. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ah, yes. For, um, cooking,â&#x20AC;? I stammer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let me show you,â&#x20AC;? he says. We walk from the body products to a food aisle. He hands me a 16-ounce clear jar full of milky white stuff. The label identifies the contents as organic virgin coconut oil. It mentions nothing about lubricants or sex or sandpaper. Indeed, its intended purpose is for cooking and any other use is your own affair. Rick and I hurry home and get busy. The coconut oil starts out as a solid, kind of like butter, and quickly melts in your hands. After just one use, we agree with X and her neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;coconut oil is magical. Later in the week, I phone X to thank her for the recommendation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel 20 years younger.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nikki, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad you called,â&#x20AC;? says X. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to the gynecologist today. The coconut oil caused an infection, or at least exacerbated it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used it for months, but the doctor says no more. You might want to reconsider too,â&#x20AC;? X suggests. I throw away my unmagical, super fatsaturated coconut cooking oil. My friend Z is touting extra virgin olive oil as the new miracle lube. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give it a try. At least I know what aisle itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in.<

erkeleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shotgun Players have done it again! For several years now, this tiny company, under the visionary leadership of founding artistic director Patrick Dooley, has been presenting the most exciting seasons of any Bay Area producer, large or small. Drawing on a core of directors, designers and (mostly) nonunion actors, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve managed to make their converted old church on Ashby Avenue, with its wooden pews and cramped stage, a mandatory stop for local lovers of live It was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;reactionary responsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; such as this that killed theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all on an annual budget that Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Second Republic. wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fund a monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operations at mores that should govern themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but he is ACT or Berkeley Rep.

Through a combination of talent, less interested in opinions than in the relationships among the well-known historical dedication, shrewd judgment and a fearless approach to risky projects shunned by characters who hold them. This creates rich opportunities for the the more conservative regional giants. The latest example is Tom Stoppardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actors involved. Among the 22-member Shipwreck, the middle play in the British cast, Patrick Kelly Jones is terriďŹ c in the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trilogy (collectively entitled The pivotal role of Alexander Herzen, the Coast of Utopia) about the 19th century young democratic socialist reformer who intellectual ferment that prepared foes of attempts to reconcile the opposing views Czarist rule in Russia for what became the of anarchists like Michael Bakunin (Joseph 1917 Bolshevik Revolutionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and also, not Salazar) and the father of authoritarian incidentally, profoundly affected politi- communism, Karl Marx (Dan Saski).

Our free student-centered instruction in reading, writing and speaking releases the full potential of MLP learners back into their families and communities.

Soft boiled

It’s rare luck indeed to have Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini and Ray Liotta star in your art film about the mob, and director Andrew Dominik, who last teamed with Pitt in the acclaimedThe Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, has run with it. KILLING THEM SOFTLYis a strange and elusive beast, a character-driven noir that will suddenly veer in the direction any of its quirky leads take it, with a storyline that lives in the moments of wind-up between all Whoa, this is nothing like the Roberta Flack song... the mayhem. It’s also about the crash of ‘08—Obama/McCain/Bush announce their emergency measures from every barroom TV—and the eerie parallels both government and mafia face from not running their ships tight. Pitt stars as the enforcer brought down to New Orleans to collect payback from a couple of teenage hoods who knocked over the organization’s card game. Mob politics being what they are, blame will have to fall on the pit boss Liotta, who’s innocent if not exactly clean, and Pitt’s OK with that. But what he doesn’t like is complication, and the messy feeling of knowing one of the young perps, so he brings in Gandolfini—a hit man who’s off his game, to put it mildly. The studio cut the film by a third—strange to do when popcorn pix now regularly top two hours—but for setting a mood, Softly can’t be beat. —Richard Gould 04/24: Youth Music Showcase 8-11pm.

Fanta is one of the sweetest dogs you are likely to meet. Shy at first, she quickly warms up and then is your best friend. She’s not too sure what toys are for, but once she has settled into her new home she is quite likely to love chasing a squeaky toy or fetching a small ball. Fanta is affectionate and enjoys the company of people. She is respectful of other dogs and may enjoy a second small dog in the household. She would also enjoy herself in a small dog training class as she is quite smart and loves treats. Fanta is fantastic! Fanta is available for adoption at the Marin Humane Society www.MarinHumaneSociety.org or Contact the Adoption Center (closed Mondays) 415-506-6225 www.MarinHumaneSociety.org

››ADViCE GODDESS® by Amy Alkon

Q:

I work 9 to 5, and my girlfriend of two years is retired and pretty much free all day. I’ve asked that we treat dinner as our special time to reconnect and ignore incoming phone calls. Sadly, instead of embracing this request, she has resisted me with full force. Whenever the phone rings during dinner, she answers and stays on as long as the call takes. We don’t get urgent calls. She counters that if the phone rings, you answer it, and that it could be some problem she can just address and be done with. She deems my request “controlling,” yet I’ve never made a demand or thrown a tantrum. I’ve just explained that I’d appreciate it if we could carve out 30 minutes of together-time. I’ve also asked her to ignore the phone when we’re in bed, but her tendency is to answer it—even if we’re having sex. I’ve explained how unwanted this phone thing makes me feel, but she doesn’t seem to get it. —Ignored

A:

What will happen if one of these calls goes to voicemail? Kim Jong Un will unleash an electromagnetic pulse bomb on the U.S., and the power grid will be fried for 40 years—or the neighbor will have to call back to tell your girlfriend the ingenious thing she did to perk up her banana cake? Two years into your relationship, the point when so many partners are just getting good at taking each other for granted, you’re telling your girlfriend you want to carve out special time to focus on each other—just 30 minutes out of her unbusy, retired-woman day. She, in turn, responds like you just demanded she cut off her three favorite fingers and feed them to the pigeons. It’s possible that she isn’t entirely conscious of why she’s treating you this way. She may fear getting closer and then getting dumped or think you’ll value her more if she makes you feel like less and less. It’s possible she is punishing you for something or is trying to abuse you into leaving. What is clear is who’s the controlling one here—the self-appointed dowager countess of the relationship, making the unilateral decision that the phone will be answered no matter what. As for you, her significant serf, keep quiet and eat your gruel while milady has a nice chat with Rachel from Cardmember Services. It must get hard to parse whether you’re in a relationship or a call center. Perhaps you, like many people, assume that being in a relationship means having a partner who loves you and cares about your happiness. Your girlfriend does seem to—as long as it doesn’t mean having to call somebody back after dinner. Even if she doesn’t fully understand what’s motivating her behavior, if she does love you, she can behave lovingly while she figures it out and stop answering the phone like she’s one of the town’s two sober volunteer firemen. Telling her how unwanted you feel obviously isn’t enough; you also have to have standards for how you’ll be treated and be willing to walk if they aren’t met—ideally, into the arms of a woman whose screams of passion in bed don’t include “Who’s calling, please?”

Q:

I met this very attractive woman who works at my local bank. She has twice called me regarding the bank’s offerings, and I’ve gotten a vibe that her interest isn’t wholly professional. Do I drop by on a pretext and blindside her with “Let’s go out sometime”? Is there another way to get her attention? —Stuck

A:

Many men have had success getting the attention of a woman who works in a bank by coming in wearing pantyhose over their head and handing her a note. Unfortunately, this approach also tends to draw the attention of the woman’s co-workers (unimaginative sorts who, at the first sign of creative headgear, are quick to summon the SWAT team). Even if you forgo the pantyhat, asking her out in person is a problem, as nothing turns the workplace into a junior high school cafeteria faster than having your co-workers looking on as somebody hits on you. (Unless your “local bank” is Citibank’s world headquarters, she probably sits at a desk in the middle of the place.) So, do go in on some pretext—so she can attach a face to your name—and then phone her to ask her out. If she turns you down, just act like you’re cool with it and you shouldn’t have a problem showing your face in the bank—tempting as it might be to go in wearing a Richard Nixon mask and try again: “No dye packs or marked money, and can I interest you in dinner and a slow-speed police chase?” < © Amy Alkon, all rights reserved. www.advicegoddess.com.
