Feedback: More on BART
Last month's letters to the editor.
BART in Alameda
Not only would it be great for Alameda, [“Going Tubular,” May] but also for other underserved localities. There are too many transit agencies muddying the waters to effective and simple public transportation. The Bay Area needs to invest in itself.
Can they dig under the homes without disturbing them? People from the East and West Bays are isolated from each other and it’s sad. I had to drop out of an SF group I loved due to traffic.

Good for you, Pauline. Enjoy.
Bye, Bye, Jill
“Alameda City Manager Jill Keimach to Step Down” [The Briefing, May 16] drew these comments:
Wow, so sorry, Jill. Another bad story and history for Alameda.
Wow! I’ve pissed off more for a lot less.
Readers said this in response to “The Last Straw” [Word on the Street, May] on banning straws:
Compostable straws. It’s as easy as that.
I’ve started asking for “no straw, please.” whenever I eat out now.
