What the Oakland Zoo should be doing if they have a funds problem is laying off staff and eliminating exhibits just like our school, fire departments, police and families are doing throughout the county.

Proposition A1 is an arrogant attempt to divert public money to a private (non-profit) organization. You see the cutsy signs going up on lawns. The Zoo appears to be spending some of the $1 million war chest they accumulated last year to buy a 25-year theft of your money. If the Zoo can do this, why not the Boy Scouts?

If we defeat a parcel tax for the education of our children and pass one to fund habitat destruction at Knowland Park, I despair at the ignorance of Pleasanton.

Now here is the mind boggle. If we invested the funds from A1 at 5% annual interest, at the end of the 25 year term we would have $170,000,000.00!
