Hit TV series West Wing Lays Bare How Far We’ve Come On Pot In 20 Years

STRANGER THAN FICTION: West Wing–maker Aaron Sorkin presaged arguments on pot two decades early. U.S. Navy photo by Chief Journalist Daniel Ross

In the midst of dealing with the day’s pressing issues, we sometimes lose the thread of how much, and how quickly, things change. A couple of years before the Supreme Court upheld gay marriage in 2015, such a development was almost unthinkable. Tobacco use dropped by 68 percent in the years between… » Read More

Hazy Science: Medical CBD Proponents Rely On Anecdotes and Push for Research

In the summer before she was supposed to start third grade, Rylie Maedler’s teeth started falling out. The Delaware kid’s mom, Janie, also noticed an “asymmetry” in Rylie’s face.

One can only wonder how huge it would be if the federal government were to legalize weed. There are now more cannabis industry workers than there are… » Read More

House Arrest

You wanted a staycation, you said. You need to catch up on streaming, you said. Well, the magic elf that lives in the sky certainly gave you what you wanted. During this period of house arrest, Netflix's cornucopia continues to spill narcos, zombies and real-life crime. Take a hard pass in favor of the adventures of a Suffolk sheep. A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon cites ET, Men in Black, Doctor Who and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The space invader is about a yard high, a sort of mischievous finger puppet shaped critter with tentacles. Topped with an azure puppyish head, he's a deep-space cousin to Peanuts' Snoopy. Shaun helps him phone home, while warding off trouble from the Ministry of Alien Detection, and the authoritarian » Read More

Review: 'The Night'

Given the current political crises, it's hard to see films by the new generation of directors following Jafar Panahi (This Is Not a Film), Mohsen Makhmalbaf (Kandahar) or Abbas Kiarostami (A Taste of Cherry, Certified Copy). Bretow notes, "We were surprised to find out that many American moviegoers weren't familiar with the renown of Iran's national cinema ... With The Night, we wanted to make something that honored that authentic humanity. Like the Iranian cinema that has come before it, The Night doesn't wear all of its secrets on the surface. We set out to create a film layered in meaning." » Read More

Pandemic Poetic

Janice Lobo Sapigao didn't expect her first year as the Santa Clara County Poet Laureate would be sucker punched by a global pandemic, but she's determined not to let that stop her from getting South Bay kids to love their own words. The Silicon Valley native took over the two-year poet laureate position in January. The honorary post comes with a mandate to increase poetry awareness and celebration. Sapigao, a Filipina American poet, author, writer, educator and active community member, has plenty of ideas for that. » Read More

Post No Bills

The text on the marquee said it all: "The Ritz Closed Until Further Notice." The news came as a disappointment to fans of Xavier Dprehpaulezz--the imaginative blues singer and songwriter who performs under the moniker Fantastic Negrito--who was scheduled to wow the crowds at The Ritz on March 19. As the county and state ramp up efforts to prevent a spike in novel coronavirus cases, bars, nightclubs and live music venues are shutting down, and it is unclear when they will open again. » Read More

All Talk, No Sense

Talk, talk everywhere but not a drop of trust. "Opinion has become our driving force," says Quinn, who brings his new show, The Wrong Side of History, to Stanford for four performances March 13 and 14. "Free speech, exchange of opinion, open communication: These things are automatically thought of as evolutionary ways to get to enlightenment. But my whole show is, hey, maybe we've gone too far with free speech, once we have electronically made opinion this thing that everyone gives out all day, every day." » Read More

Silicon Alleys: This Old Haunt

Last week, on a quiet prowl through the half-empty Cambrian Park Plaza, the desolation was inspiring. Amid semi-unhealthy air quality, the doomed plaza made me think of a recent quote by novelist Fatima Farheen Mirza: "Ghosts are misunderstood. So haunted they seek to haunt. But beneath their antics and their anger, their desire is simple, childlike. Look at me, they seem to say, I'm not ready to be invisible yet." One must summon the ghosts and wrestle with them before setting them free. And writing was a way of doing that. » Read More

Free Will Astrology: Week of September 16, 2020

In one of your past lives, maybe you were a Neanderthal midwife in what's now southern France. In another incarnation, you may have been a 17th-century Guarani shaman who shared your knowledge about local plants with an Italian Jesuit missionary in what's now Uruguay. All the powers and aptitudes you perfected in those and other previous ages could prove helpful as you cultivate your genius in the coming weeks. JUST KIDDING! Cancel my previous speculations. For you Aries folks, past achievements are often of secondary importance as you create your future. In fact, your mandate is usually to transcend the old days and old ways. It may be better not to imitate or rely on old stories, no matter how dazzling. This will be especially true in » Read More

Generation Kendrick

After leaving the conference one afternoon, several attendees witnessed a 14-year-old boy at a nearby bus stop being harassed by police, who believed he had an open container of alcohol. When they confronted the officers, they were pepper-sprayed, but they stood their ground, and were able to get the boy's mom on the phone and later on the scene. She demanded the police release her child. To everyone's amazement, they did. In what felt like a rare win against the police, the crowd of 200 spontaneously chanted the chorus to Kendrick Lamar's recently released song, "Alright": "We gon' be alright! We gon' be alright." » Read More

Silicon Alleys: Flying Colors

If the painter Mark Rothko reincarnated as an Indian woman in Silicon Valley, his name would be Chandrika Marla. In a style reminiscent of Rothko, Marla explores the beauty of the female form through vibrant colors. Her new exhibit, "Women in High Chroma" opens on September 17th at Menlo Park's Art Ventures Gallery and runs through October 23rd. On the afternoon that I hit Santa Cruz Avenue in Menlo Park, much of the road remains blocked off and set aside for outdoor dining. Eateries for the affluent and the comfortable dominate the scene. » Read More
