Isn't the purpose of the health department to keep people healthy. The County enforces these policies to keep people from getting sick. From my understanding no one, in 15 years, has ever got sick from the food provided by Food from the Heart. Why? Because they genuinely care about people they are feeding. Unlike the plenty of for-profit eateries I've gotten sick at with 'three sinks'. When the county shuts down the accessibility of food to disable peoples because of a technicality we should definitely reconsider the people we have in those positions. They clearly need to reminded that there job is to keep people healthy not 'bang-non-profits-over-the-head-with-the-book.'

When did the general slogan for banks become:

"Serving YOU by serving ourselves first**"
(**because if the bank goes down you're all screwed - so suck it)

I tried to get a small loan of working capital for my business just over a year ago from SBBT. Despite having all the necessary (qualifying) paperwork and a lifetime of successful experience with the bank, I was denied. I talked to many other people, even if they were approved, they just couldn't get cash from the bank. A few months later they remodeled all of their branch lobbies, but only after PCB got $180 mill. from the tax payers (us). See slogan above.

That may be the car of the future but it looks bleak. A nutritional cake that taste like socks and cardboard may keep you alive but it's no way to live. All in all if this is the far side of economy it's great as a reference point. Maybe we will find a more tempered solution from this. Sounds like a fun project but in the mean time I'll just take the bus. Do you know how many bus rides $10K buys you... Well I don't either but I'm sure it's a lot.

I'm not versed in the inner workings of School districts, Deputy Superintendents and the like, but when Bob No»l Says "We are all going to have to share the suffering." Does that means he is going to take a big pay cut? He should unless he's a volunteer? Also how much money would firing the board save? Seriously. They're not teaching any kids. Like I said, I'm not versed in the inner workings so if any one can fill me in please do.
