Congratulations and have a great honeymoon! But before you leave for Rome make sure you take care of sideshow containment.

And don't forget, if you neglect OAKLAND too long , the murders are going to start racking up and Oaklanders might not be too happy about that.

We wouldn't want to have to fly to Rome and crash the honeymoon.

Many congratulations!

My family and I wish the two of you an enduring happiness, and the best of fortunes.

God bless you both!

P.S. Jerry, I think you should consider a run for national office next year as opposed to the AG's race. In any event, good luck.

I read about it in the Chronicle. It actually brought tears to my eyes. Your the man Jerry and good luck as Attorney General. Congrats. You are one lucky fellow.

Mayor Moonbeam--

You're a kook, and a nut. But despite that, I wish you and your new bride all the happiness, a healthy, long life, and all the patience that love requires. Congratulations and God bless--I think we all can agree you married up. ;)

Growth is in relationships, especially intimate relationships. Congratulations in making a lifelong commitment to another person. I echo the feelings of others in wishing that yours is blessed with love, longevity, fun, and energy. We need you in state and national politics. Personally I would love to see you run for President again. The timing may finally be right.

I thank you for continuing your commitment to public service.

May the universe bless your union.

While you were enjoying your marital bliss, some former business owners who had their property stolen by your Stalinist, omelette making regime were trying to figure out how to rebuild their businesses.


'"I know Revelli," said Brown. "He fixed my brakes, twice." Brown lives seven blocks away from Revelli's shop. He admitted that Autohouse and Revelli Tires are not blighted, but told of other buildings nearby that were crime-ridden and vermin-infested before the city pushed for redevelopment.
"There is a greater good here," in eradicating the blight and replacing it with homes.'

How does it serve the "greater good" to trample people's individual rights? Did you ever occur to you that individual rights serve the greater good far better that your little pet projects?

If there is such a thing as karma, your next brake job will be botched. How the hell do you sleep at night?

Kind of a conundrum calling seizure of property of one capitalist by another in order to make greater profit "Stalinist". A bit of a contradiction I'd say if one didn't understand that the marketplace advances only by maximumizing profits.
Do people who actually support capitalism expect it to be "humane"?

Jerry, Congrats!

Be safe and at peace - I wish you both joy in your marriage.

Who would ever think that in the 70's, you, Linda, and I at the El Adobe would be around long enough to see this day. We even talked about it.

Best Wishes Jerry... it is about time and long overdue!

Jerry, your Mother Bernice once told me that she thought "Jerry needs a wife, because a good wife was very important to a politician"

Your Dad was close by, and knowing that she did not hear out of the ear on that side said "Yes, I always said that if I had one I'd have been President of the United States."

Bernice turned to me and said "What did he say?"

Pat just laughed and said "Nothing."

I'm sure that she was right; you have changed since your marriage.

Beautifull...I made these crackers last night and they're lovely! Slightly sweet and without any bitterness. The sesame seeds make for an interesting texture.
