When Lynn said he expected to be fired if he lost the election, he was also alerting the public that he'd fire Dudley if he won.

It's his own fault for crashing and burning, both during the election cycle and in the days afterward. It's quite evident that the two of them wouldn't fit in the same department after the election unless they were both team players and checked their egos at the door; that's where Lynn failed, and Dudley won the seat, so there you go. Glad I voted for her!

The Markowitz's understandably support Lynn, and who wouldn't if that were your child who was murdered, but they need to see the larger picture, as well.

Kudos to Anne Bramsen...and I, for one, take her at her word on this matter. Good luck and all the best to Ms. Dudley.

Outrageously flippant of Berti to express a desire that the Gottesmans use the settlement to advocate for pool safety...what does he think this entire process has been about? Why else would the parents of this boy have struggled for so long to get some form of justice for the extreme negligence that lead to the death of their young son? He could at least have the courtesy not to step on their toes now and to cough up more from his very deep pockets toward their pool safety foundation, as well as acknowledge and apologize for his personal culpability in the death. Prayers and blessings go out to the Gottesmans as they pursue further avenues of justice in this sorrowful matter.

Just a reminder that many wonderful Adult Ed classes have been offered over the years at the Wake Center on Turnpike also...

This is TOO distressing...bring bullhorns on 10/27!!!

Feeling cynical much, Kratatoa? Goods of all sorts get trucked all over creation every dang day...why belittle this generous gesture with a crack like that?

Perhaps Julia was put off by the idea that Julie was racing through the cookbook; she knew, after all her laborous and detailed work on MtAoFC, that in one year there would never be enough time for the recipes to be savoured and executed properly...that, and mooching on her name, must have been disturbing for Julia. The movie was fabulous, though...Meryl Streep channeled Julia in a way that is such sublime artistry...can't wait to buy the DVD! JC would be pleased to know that her books are flying off the shelves and that she's responsible, once again, for inspiring cooks, new and old, everywhere.

here's a good map of burn area, with Gap and Tea fires perimeters as well: (i have no idea why this is so lengthy! copied it right from my browser though)

if anyone comes across a map that also includes the perimeter of the Zaca fire, please share the link...thanks!

what an invaluable, much-needed and super-appreciated community service your reporting has been, including this listing of streets/addresses...

can recall a reporter on the radio (not sure which now) who walked from street to street back during the wee hours at nighttime(s) of the Painted Cave fire, just calling out saved/gone addresses...couldn't turn the radio off, it was hypnotic and the wait seemed interminable, but we just needed to know...

On Assessing What's Burned

well...if you read the article, SBMommy, the journalist did attend a meeting of the GNC but there were no attendees...what does that tell ya?!?

excellent article! what a highly disturbing issue -- and it was obsessively-well-researched (mind you, the obsessive part is NOT a perjorative here) and presented in a straightforward manner...much appreciation for the education on CEF.
