"Doles"? Rude, crude, and ignorant. All in one word. Mr. Towbes can never be faulted for being anything but socially responsible, kind, and generous.

To hold signs protesting the media is also free speech.

I personally am not used to dealing with programs of safety, and I appreciate how complicated this problem can be. But, UCSB has to do more to provide physical safety to their students. If it means more patrolling police, so be it.

As to the parents of the murderer, parents start out being protective of their child. But there comes a time when what is indicated is protection of the general population from their child. They have to face this moment and take action.

Why are these restrictions taking so long to implement? 8.5 million to update the never right filtration plant?

As allied with poetry, with all his work, publications, and awards, Barry once told me that it was as a teacher that he would like to be remembered. And as immeasurable as stars in night skies, or sparks given off by flames, I think that he will. He taught, and he taught by being. Who could not learn from his welcoming ways? His generosity of time and guidance, whether you were a friend or someone who was not yet a friend, or someone who just saw how he proceeded in this world of humans. To think there is no more Barry is so painful. But there can be more Barry if I, if we, merely emulate his ways. This is what gives me comfort.

Thank you, Ethan, for your beautifully written, beautiful personal accounting of what matters, and offering to tell us about it. No matter our personal circumstance, it is deeply meaningful, and a huge enrichment.

Hi Maureen,

Poetry in fact is read and enjoyed a lot. Check out poetry reviews in CASA Magazine, and lots of poetry ongoing activities. In fact, SB has a brand new poetry journal named Miramar, available at Chaucer's and Granada Books. A group of people meet every 3rd Monday, 5:15 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. upstairs at Blue Agave restaurant just to read poems they like (not their own) to those who like poetry. There's the SB Poetry Series, meeting quarterly upstairs at Paseo Nuevo. Granada Bookstore has poetry readings throughout the week, including Poetry Zone which always includes an open mic in addition to featured poets. There are Poets Laureate of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura. Just wait until April National Poetry Month when a huge number of poetry events are scheduled in SB.

Why is/was a disasterous signal even considered? Only a roundabout will work. What is the problem? (Rhetorical.)
