so Maurer you're calling Ken mendacious when he answers Roger's question about his state of mind: "[I'm] Happy, because I love where I live and what I do, and because I see so much potential for Santa Barbara. I work and live in paradise!" The VERY strong inference is that he lives in SB or at least SB County. Where DOES Ken really live most of the time??

speed up the commuter train ( 6 am to 8 a.m. is too long to get to SB!) and ditch this entire widening BS. Then geeber can keep his beloved leftside ramps.

and of course Woodrow Wilson was a harsh racist, promised NOT to get us into WW I, and while he had the idea for the idealistic League of Nations, he couldn't get his own country to join. Poor choice.

surely none of us are shocked at Rep. "Shock's" thievery, only bemused at his clumsiness. [Oh, it's Downton Abbey by the way]. Corruption seems endemic in democracies going right back to 450 BCE in ancient Athens. PM Netanyahu of Israel is under investigation for using government funds for his princely private lifestyle, including $120,000 in takeout meals alone!SCOTUS unfortunately is not very likely to undo Citizens United, which eminent philosopher Ronald Dworkin called about the worst Supreme Court decision of the last 100 years. Many of us have been screaming for serious campaign finance reform, and Ben gives some examples of how that could work. Both parties have members doing this stuff, and recently Democrats in Calif. had 3 members forced to resign for corruption (remember Ron Calderon?) due to financial corruption. The numbers cited are boggling, but do note that labor unions are fifth in this stuff.

Validated, you've seen what we all learn about JJ: aging brain with OCD that everything's "a waste of taxpayer money" ... boring and repetitious, nothing better to do than rant about taxes....jeeze, read a book or something.

oh yeah, I lament the loss of Borsodis [before your time], hate soy lattes, drive a 16 year old truck, and if you like the writing in the Sentinel that tells me all I need to know about your standards!

dig a little deeper, Sam, Sentinel was started by MontJ...just a shallow spinoff, try doing a little research, eh?

We learn this troubled man had eight firearms, seven swords, two fighting knives and thousands of rounds of ammunition, and he is being charged with possession of an illegal shotgun and illegal rifle magazines. We need more gun control: who needs thousands of rounds and 8 firearms?!

as a poster said on this site -- http://www.santabarbaraview.com/santa... -- "frankly they're giving the paper away in order to keep the circulation numbers up" -- only they are NOT up. Get rid of Caldwell, Malkin, et al.

true, and the N-P according to my sources has dropped from about 48,000 to less than 25,000 BUT, as many note, when it shrunk to a 2-section THIN thin version it has become essentially a throw-away. Further, as I see on my street, they often just throw the paper on various driveways in a blatant effort to stoke their circ. number so they can charge more for the advertising.
