Although rumors have spread about possible connections to the particularly aggressive flu season, that does not appear to have been a factor in Gonzales’ death. Since October, there have been seven deaths of flu patients younger than 65 in the county, with the youngest patient being 28 years old. “There have been no influenza deaths in children in our county,” said Dr. Louise McNitt, communicable disease medical director at Contra Costa Health Services. In early January, a 14-year-old student at Liberty High school committed suicide. Since then, his family has begun work on establishing a website to help other parents whose children may be considering suicide.

Loeb’s “Ideation,” which received its world premiere as part of San Francisco Playhouse’s Sandbox Series in November, is a dark corporate farce that spins into chaos as a team of high-paid suits brainstorms about the ethics of a top-secret project. The audience instantly is sucked into a vortex of greed, apocalypse and office politics that doesn’t let up from start to finish. Josh Costello directed the show, which starred Carrie Paff and Mark Anderson Phillips. Loeb, a video game developer turned emerging playwright, is best known for “First Person Shooter” and “Abraham Lincoln’s Big, Gay Dance Party.” In “Ideation,” he draws on both his nimble wit and his intimacy with the idiosyncrasies of corporate culture. Loeb lives in Berkeley and holds down a day job at Electronic Arts.
