  1. I am new to Berkeley (one year). I discovered Berkeleyside.com very recently. Now I check this site out daily and I assume you want to grow your readership.

    I am disappointed that berkeleyside.com has devoted quite a lot of what used to be called ‘ink’ (what would be the online equivalent?!) to the permitting process as it relates to Anish Kapoor’s planned behemoth but you have not told your readers about Ryan Lau.

    Ryan Lau, a public servant, paid to enforce construction permits, has admitted he broke the laws he is paid to enforce. Clearly, there is corruption at city hall.

    How could Berkeleyside overlook that story? I am certain that all your readers who are interested in zoning variances for the very wealthy would be interested to know that the zoning department is run by a guy who just publicly admitted he knowingly violated the zoning laws.
