Labor unions would rate much higher on the list if dark money numbers were included.

That's pretty funny JJ. Sorry, Starbucks baristas are only permitted to talk about race.

That is an interesting link. The underpasses cost $58M in 1991. Although it seemed horrifically expensive at the time, that's only the cost of a couple of roundabouts in today's SB.

That should show us the price we pay for delaying the freeway expansion.

Uh, in case you didn't know Dan. ALL newspapers have lost subscribers in the last 10 years. There's something called the "internet" where former newspaper readers have transitioned to getting their news.

On Commuter Train Service Expected by Spring 2016

I have a vision of the future on this stuff. You will never get people out of their cars. It's just too inconvenient to take one mode of transportation to a train, then take a train, then take another mode of transortation to one's final destination. Trains will never be popular with the public.

The future is driverless cars. With driverless cars, speed and safety will increase because the "driver's" reaction time is the speed of light. The cars will probably be emission free and will get people to their destination faster. The freeways will be able to handle more traffic at a higher speed because "safe" following distance is reduced. But we're talking 20 years here. But that's the future. About the time that the high speed rail comes on line.

DD, PATCO was a union that deserved to be crushed. They were the greediest bastards on earth. I wish the government had the guts to do the same thing at our ports where longshoreman extort the taxpayer out of huge salaries and benefits.

Ah, Ken longs for the days of PATCO, the Iran hostage crisis, wicked inflation and lines at the gas pump!

Actually, it's "cheesiness" is part of the attraction. However, the big problem in my eyes is that the parade gets so separated out. Five years ago, it was organized and sequential. The last time I went, there were quite a number of 20-30 min. gaps between parade participants. It was about 3 hours between the first parade group and the last with more time waiting in between than actual parade.

I won't be going again.

Cleveland and Santa Barbara are different worlds. Taxes, regulation, cost of living, salaries. Maybe you could build your $20K roundabout in Cleveland, but SB? Forget it!
