“It’s the responsibility of the person who’s driving,” she said. “People need to make better choices. Period.”
I agree and would add, that includes your friend. I'm sorry she is dead, but she was a willing participant in a stupid activity that went horribly wrong. He needed a better lawyer. There was no way he deserved 14 years for this. DA overreached and got away with it.

So they fired him before his trial? I'd be interested on what grounds. Did he lie about his record when applying for the job? Not in any way defending this schlub, but is Capps's office being set up (or setting itself up) for a wrongful termination suit?

I'm sure she will do a fine job, but have to ask: with a salary of $230K/yr, why does she need a $7K/yr car allowance (with mileage reimbursement!)? If she has to drive somewhere on County business, isn't there a motor pool she can use? This is another example of why our "leaders' are out of touch with those that pay their salaries.

"When asked if she supported suspending Congressional pay, Capps said she is already part of efforts to ensure members of Congress are not paid during the shutdown. "
What does that mean? Is she working during the shutdown? I think it means endless wheelspinning that will accomplish nothing but look like something is being done.Why can't she just say "I'm returning my check to the Treasury" or "I'm donating my check to FoodBank in Santa Barbara"?
This is why we need term limits in DC. Politicians are incapable of speaking a simple sentence.

"While Caruso enjoys considerable cache throughout ..."
I believe the word you're looking for is cachet.

Anybody want to guess that it'll end up like SBCC? Fire someone and then have to buy out the remainder of their contract. She should have been canned for not letting the supes know she was looking elsewhere (but only if that wasn't allowable under her contract).
