Anyone can read James F. Tracy's paranoid blog postings on the internet. To him, every mass shooting is a government conspiracy to justify gun control. Go ahead and Google him as I have.
But that's not all, he also has a hard-on for climate change skeptics. Yep, it's all a conspiracy by the government. In an earlier generation, James F. Tracy would be supporting op-ed pieces denying man ever landed on the moon.
There's a difference between critical thinking and ad hoc hypothesizing driven by personal biases.

BTW, the Old Mission's lawn is beginning to get brown. I noticed yesterday Sandpiper is still pretty green. But Goleta has a lot more groundwater reserves than SB.
On City Customers Not Saving Water During Drought

Looking at the problem mathematically, I suspect there are lots of residential water users compared to hotels, commercial users, etc. So if residential water users cut back a little, that could results in large savings. Possibly larger than just a few big water users cutting back.
Of course, we'd need to see a breakdown of water usage by category to figure out where the biggest net gains could come from. And how much needs to be cut back in each category. I wouldn't be surprised if the City hasn't done this already.

Had no idea water districts could be a private business. I thought they were all public agencies. Who was responsible for that transfer in 1995?
Git a rope.

I meant off-market. Clearly I was thinking of something illegal.

The last time I saw Eloise, we were both little kids growing up in SB. How this town has changed since then.
Rosenfeld and his associates own at least three large properties near the beach (California Hotel, La Entrada, Chapala One). There have been sooo many large property purchases in that area by out-of-town interests, many of them off-book. More than ever, this town is just a capital investment for those who could take advantage of the 2008 recession and low cost of money.

Minoofar's is an excellent apolitical analogy. It really gets down to brass tacks.

Good karma. Every rattler I've heard has been pretty loud (like something inside a shaking paper bag).
