I agree with free speech and all, but we are talking someone who should be on death row for his crimes against humanity. Who will they have next charles manson? Does that sound like a silly question? Kissinger's crimes make manson's look like child's play. This man mesmerized the already criminally mesmerized Nixon administration into some of the worst war crimes in history, and Westmont thinks he is an 'educational opportunity' for it's students? Pardon me but students should be reading about Kissinger's execution on the gallows, hardly witness to him alive and on stage.The empire crumbles....................

Mayor Schneider would be wise to immediately appoint the man, who has quietly and efficiently watched over this property for more than 30 years. He should be director of whatever this property becomes. He is as much a part of Bellosguardo as anyone living. He lived and worked on the property for over 30 years, no one else has ever lived there other than this man, is there any question in anyone's mind as to who should remain in charge of Bellosguardo. Lets hope she makes an obvious and intelligent decision!

The person who should be in charge of whatever Bellosguardo becomes should be the person who has watched over the property since 1979. No one knows more about this property. Mayor Schneider should consider this man for director immediately, he would provide a smooth transition.

They'll all be gone in five years. The players will have moved on to their next project in another community (sic) who's constant transitions keep it from ever establishing itself. Santa Barbara is a 'plaything' for these imaginative but self-absorbed travelers. It used to be at least several generations could enjoy a restaurant and make it a part of their family's and friend's living traditions, now people are lucky if it lasts two or three years. So what, you say? If that is your attitude, there isn't enough space here to explain to you that this lack of 'cultural-connective-tissue' has destroyed what's left of this city. Santa Barbara has become an amusement park and these carnival hucksters offer you a midway full of their short lived narcissistic two dimensional rides and amusements.

The big question is why can't Target build it in the mission style with white stucco walls and a red tile roof? Are they broke? Would this open the floodgates of architectural anarchy all over the USA? Could it be that the banksters know this building will be empty in 10 to 20 years after the financial blood has been sucked out of the area? The streets of LA get longer and longer...........

sezme brings up a point that confounds me as well. Whenever this newspaper prints stories about these projects they (almost) never include a picture of the proposed structure. In this instance you can actually see the drawing of the project in the background .............???????
