A Progressive Alamedan

Various writings from a resident of Alameda regarding the political scene. The local perspective of local, state and national politics and a few other odds and ends of local concern. May not be particularly interesting to people outside of the Alameda area.

An Alameda Hero

Tonight I finally had the opportunity to meet Allen Michaan, owner of the Grand Lake Theatre. He's an Alameda Resident whom I consider a true hero for the messages he puts on part of the Grand Lake's Marquees. Usually confrontational, always political, they are a breath of First Amendment fresh air!

The Grand Lake Theatre is truly world-famous - Allen told me he has gotten letters and emails from all over the world. A newspaper in England regularly prints photos of the marquees!

Some examples:
