Hunter Cobb's letter “No revenge for Mueller, but...” addresses the problem of the prolonged and debilitating attack on the presidency over the past two years, but clearly, the release of the Mueller report has not ended the problem. One matter which would go a long way toward ending this controversy and liberate the country, is to let out the secret known by Mr. Bill Binney.

Binney was for many years the technical director of the NSA, but quit in disgust at how the agency was being turned against American citizens, in the wake of 9/11. He is an expert in electronic communication technology and has much to say on the issue of Russia's alleged hacking of the DNC computer.

Supposedly, Russia hacked the DNC computer and gave the damning material to Wikileaks, who then published it. Julian Assange has maintained that he did not get the material from Russia. But there are those who do not want his proof of this to see the light of day, and would wish Julian Assange to disappear.

Last year, President Trump had then CIA Director Mike Pompeo meet with Bill Binney on these matters, but Pompeo, who sometimes seems to be on a different track from Trump, did nothing to follow this up.

Binney has demonstrated that the transfer of data from the DNC computer could not have occurred over the internet. It must have been a download to a thumbdrive or other storage device. It was a leak on site, not a hack over the internet from Russia!

Mr. Binney should be invited to testify to Congress. This is a very big. If it can be proven that the villification of Russia for interfering in our election was a hoax, then we can begin a new phase of better relations with this important country.

I was visiting Alameda from Oregon recently and was able to attend the final performance of City Island Opera’s La Rondine at the Alameda Elks Club. Having been an opera subscriber in Portland, Ore., for years, I was interested to see how a local community production  differed from “city opera.” I was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of this opera, performed by a community organization and sung by many singers from San Francisco Opera and Opera San Jose. 

The room was beautiful and the acoustics quite brilliant. Perhaps the Tiffany dome above had something to do with that, but the glow of the light was very unique. 

Being so close to the performers was very different from my usual opera experience. I was impressed that there didn’t seem to be one bad seat in the house. Ticket prices were very reasonable indeed!

The quality of the voices was impressive to say the least. In truth, I found the performance much more emotionally satisfying than a city opera performance.   Tears of joy were shed. Another benefit was being able to meet and visit briefly with the performers after the opera and feel part of a true community opera experience.

How fortunate the East Bay is to have this amazing opera company.  I cannot think of another like it where the audience feels such a connection with the performance.  I hope that the population of the East Bay will continue to support this jewel of an opera company.

Who is correct, former Mayor Trish Spencer or Alameda Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft? (“Point, Counterpoint” April 4, Election Section) The problem for voters is that both were correct. Measure A will help the homeless (Ashcraft) and it will bring homeless people from outside the city (Spencer).  

We would be rewarded with a feeling that we are helping people who need help, and subjected to a loss of quality of life in our city, especially around the proposed facility. Yes, Alameda city homeless will probably benefit from the drop-in clinic, but anyone from Alameda County is invited.  

Low-income seniors would be eligible for housing which will be apportioned, presumably based on population or need, among all Alameda County communities.  Relatively few Alameda city seniors would get one of these units. We would be doing something to help, and it would not be free.

It was so difficult to decide how to vote. Look around at the heart-rending, shuffling, staring individuals in dirty and tattered clothing. Was this the opportunity to help them? On the other hand, we pass littered homeless encampments at our doorstep in nearby cities. That surely is a problem we would have to live with. 

There was no easy answer. I, for one, closed my eyes and marked my ballot.
