1. 125 degrees in Baker, over 100 even in some nearer Bay Area places (Fairfield, Livermore). Maybe 80 in Berkeley? No contest, Berkeley wins!
2. Waste Management, Inc. locks out their workers, jeapardizing trash collection throughout the East Bay. Except Berkeley, because the city does trash collection itself. So Oakland will stew in their own stench, but Berkeley will wave to the friendly trashman! Hopefully!
