    I worked in the military weapons world for nearly 30 yrs, last 13 in the Navy, 17 more at a national laboratory. A female USAF rep was offended by the terms used by electricians and electrical engineers, "male and female" connectors. Those terms work and are well understood.

    Since I had control, I refused to discuss the subject other than stating the obvious. Male and female remained in the documents.

    Being offended by "DEAD END STREET" is another loser. Oh, boo hoo, it reminds the snowflakes of their mortality. Get lost. Don

    Are they out of real issues to address? Or do they think their real issues are caused by words like manhole? I kid, of course.

    You can rag on the city council but they’re just doing what their loony constituents want them to do. This really is clown world.

    Yes it does offend many on the Left, has been the subject of numerous urban comedians, and has had at least one suggestion that at certain times it be lighted in "rainbow " patterns to express solidarity with less than 10% of the population.

    I'm betting that if you asked for a show of hands at the 2nd Democratic Debate on changing the color you'd get several takers.

    Didn’t Obama actually already do that?

    Maybe, don't know.

    I wouldn't be surprised from a guy who wanted NASA to change the mission statement and focus to make Arabs feel better.

    Aside from it being a slow news day and the Berkeley change taking the first 2-3 pages of internet search returns, you can browse for quite a while looking at all the places in the country who have been changing local codes, ordinances, job titles, manuals and official documents over to gender neutral formats for some years. It's not Berkeley came up with it out of nowhere.

    Because a circle is the only shape that no matter how it is turned cannot fall through its own hole.

    Remember the “Ebonics” thing? I believe Oakland gave us that one.

    Ban things you don't like and then something will magically take its place ... overnight. How many movie stars and pols have secret gas generators and storage tanks at their places, as well as armed guards to fan them if their a/c power gets cut off?

    Sigh. Of course it did.

    These are the same clowns, albeit in San Francisco, who are painting over a New Deal Mural of Washington....that was painted in the 1930s by a devout Communist.

    You know it's bad when even a Lefty wants to destroy a painting by a Communist.

    Impossible. People would have a hard time differentiating between a hole in the road, and the city of Berkeley.

    Its all a joke until they own the state. While people laughed they own CA, NY, NJ, MA, Hi, IL, CT, VT, RI, OR, WA, and are on the way to owning several more including that big red state that swings the electoral college to the left forever......FL. But I bet those 4 million people that got welfare in one month are all going to vote republican.

    This is the same city that just banned the use of Natural Gas in new construction starting next year. Better guard your trees. They will become firewood to heat someones home!

    For Obama, rainbow White House was ‘a moment worth savoring’
