When in the course of Oakland's events
I don't want to detract from DS's important question about start dates, but I just saw this item on CNN about a proposal by Oakland to tax fast food and convenient stores to help pay for cleaning up the litter around schools. I normally wouldn't care too much about this but for two things. First, this is why we revolted from England. They kinda wanted to tax us to help pay for the mess we created in the French and Indian War. Second, the closest Jack in the Box is within Oakland's city limits. Am I now going to take my business (for the number 4 combo) to the one on San Pablo? Oh you betcha. But I'm hoping that the Berkeley City Council will take a cue and allow more fast food restaurants here in Berkeley to offer comparatively cheap food. Free trade baby, free trade.
