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?

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).

Donald Rumsfield was recently interviewed by Kai Ryssdal on his Marketplace show (a daily business wrapup). It was very obvious Rumsfield is living in a bubble of his own making. The man refuses to acknowledge any of the onerous errors he made with Iraq and at one point even blamed Bush. Robert McNamara may have screwed up in Vietnam, but he eventually came clean. Rummy on the other hand seems destined to go to his grave thinking he's a hero of the nation.
