Oakland Mayor joins blogosphere
Oakland, California Mayor Jerry Brown has joined the blogosphere this week, with the first post slamning critics of Oakland’s 10pm curfew for criminals on parole.
“These zealots can’t accept the fact that strategic police work is saving lives in our city,” Brown wrote in the post.
He has also taken the opportunity to blast “Gonzo” journalist Hunter S. Thompson, who aptly committed suicide this week, with a post that describes him as an outlaw journalist who took “muckraking to an outer edge”.
The blog is hosted on SixApart’s TypePad service.
