Congrats to the Frontier Group and to Mr. Unterreiner.... The Frontier Group sounds like a great resource.... And in our own backyard! Maybe, they could shed some light on the wisdom (lack ?) of Caltrans persistent desire to pave over Summerland and Montecito to solve 21st century traffic problems w/ 20th century solutions.

On Taps for Arlington West

Arlington West was such a loving and moving memorial to the killed, maimed, and psychologically damaged Americans of the Mid East wars.... Thank you to all who made this possible. I wonder, if they had erected crosses for ALL the human beings who were killed, if West Beach would have been big enough??

So Mr Rughe wants to make Cito to look just like Santa Maria, Ventura, and Goleta.... HMM... And he wants to hire the Chinese to do so?? He blames the "Self-serving people of Montecito" for "killing the remodeling of the Miramar". I think perhaps he may be suffering from a little wallet envy, as well as being a tad (a lot) delusional. To blame the demise of the Miramar on the citizens of Monticito is strange too. I wonder if he's aware of any market forces that have been standing in the way of big developers for the last 5 yrs.? Prolly not. Why would the Indy give any space to this rant?

Stagger the work schedules, schedule commuter rails at 7- 8AM and 5-6PM, throw in an HOV lane between 7-8AM & 5-6PM problems solved. A smart man who is now an elected official told me the same thing about the work schedules... What ever happened to THAT?? We need to send Caltrans back to LA, Fresno, and Bakersfield.

This is just redonkulous... The problem(s) w/ traditional energy sources like hydrocarbons(Goo) and nukes is that they have unlikely but extremely catastrophic consequences if things go wrong. As seen in the Gulf, Santa Barbara Channel, and Japan.... Can't believe Venoco is gonna try this again....
On Revised Carpinteria Oil Proposal Unveiled

I saw the lecture last night. For me the Q and A at the end was the best part. Kucinich launched a lengthy sometimes emotional indictment of Dubya, Rummy, Cheny,etc... Much of it prolly true... But, the most encouraging/inspirational parts of the program for me, were the FORWARD looking UCSB/SBCC students who were asking questions about alternative energy/transportation options during the Q and A. Alternative energy/transportation is the way forward... not potential indictments of potentially criminal acts by PAST administrations. IF we can get rid of our dependence on foreign energy sources.... much of our probs will take care of themselves. Kudos to Frank Kelley/NAPF for fascilitating the dialogue in such a constructive manner!

"Alcohol may have been a factor"...Drugs and alcohol continue to cut down so many young people in their prime... UCSB leaders need to get w/ it and educate these kids that they can't party themselves into oblivion on Fri and Sat nights.
