The News in Haiku

Because the work day is long, but your attention span is short.

We’re excited to launch a new series here at the Express, The News in Haiku, where we let you know about East Bay news, culture stories, and events you may have missed each week, all told in around seventeen syllables. If you’re interested in delving deeper, simply click on the title and read the full story (or bookmark it to savor later).
