Crystal Balls

Santa Barbara has the best weather, best beaches, best seafood (and local, too), lots of money, short commutes around town (to the bank, library, museums, stores). What else do you need? It’s easy to live here. And also, our best medical services! Doctors, nurses, and all work so hard to make everyone feel comfortable, live better, and live longer … when needed.

But don’t forget there’s also a “natural law” in play, i.e., “opposites attract.” Do you know there is a wide congregation of “volunteers” also at work to undo the work of our medical staff based upon the same science: to give comfort (misery) live better (worse), and longer (shorter).

Look out, Santa Barbara.
