At least it was not a rape awareness meeting.

We're not on the same "getting a kick" page apparently, but I was robbed in the Rockridge district. Wannabe gangstas know no boundaries

Rockridge... Rockridge.. splendid.

Oaklanders are fond of their crime.

Do not attempt to deprive them.

farkmedown: How's that disarmament of the law-abiding working out for you, California?

You can own guns in California.

Bit'O'Gristle: Why no description of the robber? Don't they usually give one?

The SF Gate does not print descriptions if the suspects look African American.

Oakland is really nice. Of course it's no Detroit, which ranks first in violent crime, car theft and aggravated assault, and it's no New Orleans, which ranks first in murder, and it's not even close to Minneapolis which ranks first in rape, or Cleveland, which is first in robbery and burglary, or St. Louis which ranks first in property crime, and it's no San Antonio where Larceny and theft are king, and it can't touch Toledo for the lead in arson. But if it makes you feel better to bad mouth Oakland go ahead, we don't care. We probably make fun of where you live too.

So Al Davis had put together the perfect Raiders team for '98. The only thing he was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges, and even the high schools, and he couldn't find a ringer quarterback that would ensure a SuperBowl win.

Then one night, watching CNN, he saw a war zone in Bosnia. In the background, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a young Bosnian soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand grenade straight into a 15th story window 200 yards away, ka-boom! He threw another hand grenade into a group of about 10 soldiers a good 110 yards away-ka-blooey! A car passes going 90 miles an hour-bulls-eye! Right into the barely open window.

"I've got to get this guy," Al says to himself. "He has the perfect arm!" So he brings him to the states and teaches him the great game of football. Predictably, the young man breaks all the NFL records for completed passes, and the Raiders go on to win the SuperBowl.

The young Bosnian is lionized as the Great Hero of SuperBowl XXXI, and when Al asks him what he wants, all the young man wants to do is to call his mother. "Mom," the young man says into the receiver, "I just won the SuperBowl." "I don't want to talk to you,"
the old woman says. "You deserted us. You're not my son."

"I don't think you understand, mother" the young man pleads. "I just won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm in the middle of thousands of adoring fans."

"No, let me tell you," the mother implores. "At this very moment, there are gun shots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lifes last week, and this week your sister was raped in broad daylight...." I'll never forgive you for making us move to Oakland.
