Actually, given that the News-Press just ran a ridiculously long series excoriating DUI driver Raymond Morua and calling into question his employment at the time, his prior record, and the hiring practices of his employer, it would have been shoddy, irresponsible journalism to not mention the connection between another alleged DUI-death offender and her recent employment history. That, in fact, would be burying the news.

I like carrots. And you people should get jobs.

On UCSB to Host International Mother Language Day Conference

Foo, now it's clear you are missing an "L" in your nickname. If you bothered to do even elementary school level research, you would find that vitamin supplements are far different than basic nutritional needs, which are actually quite hard to come by and expensive in the developing world. Your hateful, misinformed commentary should go elsewhere. It has no place in a piece about people actually bettering the world. Feel free to continue your anonymous, inane diatribes everywhere else but please spare us your idiocy here.

On Vitamin Angels’ Fledgling Fight for Filipinos

Though most of us independent readers have taken to reading your trolling vitriol with a bit of embarrassed pity, you now seem to be crossing some imaginary digital line, italiansurg, in that you are issuing what appear to be responses to arguments that no one has made.

Nowhere in this story does anyone complain about anything related to Target, nor are there any commenters here raising any concerns over Target being a chain.

So two questions immediately come to mind:

1) Do you actually read the articles and comments or just spit out ramblings that uphold your one-sided view of a complicated world?


2) Do you have a job? If so, please let us know what it is, for most of us would love the kind of time you have on your hands during the day to troll these comments boards.

On On Target

Had you folks never read articles about trials before? As usual, the reporter covers what was said in court that day, which usually amounts to what one side said. It's not a reporter's job to then spend hours tracking down the other team's side. That's ridiculous. Nonetheless, Robbins does try to get that side here anyway, but runs into another standard response in court reporting: No one from the law enforcement side can can comment even if they wanted to because the case is still ongoing.
I know commenters here arent usually for following any code of respect, but let's try two things from now on: 1) let's actually read the article before commenting and 2) stop shooting the messenger, who is ony trying to do a fair job of relaying the information provided.
As to whether this alleged forgery actually means anything (none of the prechecked boxes in question seem all that scandalous: weather, road type, basic states of suspect, etc), it seems rather weak.

Maybe it was more of a campaign stop than a fundraiser but it did happen and a simple two seconds of Google research confirms it:

On Rowse in the House

Geez, another Indy page littered with uninformed rantings. What a surprise....

Did you people even read the article? The VT2U guy offered to let Earl's stay in the business with the pop-ups, but State Parks said no. And he doesn't seem to be a corporation, just a guy with a business idea.

Luckily, most SBers aren't so lame as these commenters.

On Campground Conflict

1) a job of mayors in any economy involves traveling to other cities to help/examine/spread goodwill, so it's not a waste of tax dollars but a normal, accepted, and welcomed way to spend them. SB would be a backwater laughing stock if we did not have public officials who took time away from their schedules to travel.

2) Lars' incessant DA ramblings now make perfect sense. He doesn't even know that the job is a county one and has very little to do with the city. As well, the article explains that the mayor has already returned. So it seems that our chap can't even actually read.

You guys should stop littering this website and instead have a pity party to toast the fact that most of the world can have a couple drinks and not fall off the deep end. Fermented grains, in fact, may have given rise to civilization as we know it, so fermented grapes can't be so bad. if you don't like it then leave. Please, at least, stop peppering this site with your lame and lackluster diatribes. We're all old enough to know better.

Maybe the above commenter's name is mispelled? The "R" at the end of Disturber should probably be a "D"
