At the same time, Don Roberts celebrated 20 years of talking about things without knowing what he’s talking about with special guest Pat Bail!

Cleaning out the old mental file cabinet, today’s post is a bouillabaisse of fishy thoughts. First, Notadave asks about the Navy’s letter to the city about their desire to get moving on Alameda Point. For your reading enjoyment, here it…
