Paul Cobb and Zennie Abraham Talk Old Times



Two of Oakland's more colorful characters, Oakland Post publisher Paul Cobb and blogger/sports business geek Zennie Abraham, chat about Chauncey Bailey, Ron Dellums, and the state of the city in general. Cobb, for whom Bailey was working when he was murdered, has never been our favorite city leader, and Zennie's a real piece of work when he wants to be. But they're an important part of Oakland's unique civic culture. Skip past the tedious Martin Luther King Jr. worship and listen to them riff. It's a work of art, in its way.
