Hey, everybody you know what...this isn't about politics, Al Qada, Barbara Boxer, nothing...it is the saddest situation, ever! The Syrians who work so hard in this community, who have taken over failing markets and little stores, are stunned...talk to them, about this situation, they can't even speak. They have been told, "Come to the USA!...such a great life!...." and in Santa Barbara, this BUCOLIC TOWN! Now this! This is a dreadful time, that this should happen in THIS BUCOLIC TOWN. Bucolic, really? I am really sad about this.

Mikey deGruy - you are my hero once again. You tell it like it is. How wonderful of you to drop everything and get out there and look this thing square in the face. I can't wait to hear your whole story and probably see your film or footage, and in the meantime, Ethan, thanks for writing this excellent interview.

Nick, you are one of the best writers in the world, really...how you capture it all in one sweeping armful of stuff and facts, mixed up with humor and insight - is pretty dang cool. Thanx. HH

GO, KARL!Matt Kettmann, what perfect coverage (again)....How wonderful, Karl Hutterer, to take on this huge challenge with sensitivity to cause and history, the changing need of the physical building and embracing the changing times of natural history itself - AND the neighborhood AND the community. I applaud you mightily. Hillary

I love this interview! It is honest! Eva Marie Saint is an icon, and she is telling us things we'll not hear otherwise...I can't wait to read the next installment...I think this is really well done!

Hughes Morton was probably the gentlest, kindest, neatest human being in the world....I send my love to Cece, Jamie and Caitlin...I send my tears and admiration to them all. I am grateful the notice about this beautiful man makes mention of what he lost the battle with...it is time it comes out...because so many of us who have been in these pits know we need to talk about it and compare notes, and help each other...there are negative doctors and negative meds out there, I know firsthand.... I send my love to Hughes Morton's whole family, and all of his friends who grieve now, including me, bigtime.Love, Hillary

Elyse - I LOVE YOU TO PIECES FOR DOING THIS! You have helped me in the past with the 5 or 6 doz. rescue dogs I've rescued....oh, to know the bliss and glow of a RESCUE DOG! they are so grateful. I love the YouTube video of what you're doing...I loved your shop in Montecito, I love it even more now on the Mesa...and I love you forever for doing this....everyone who wonders about price - believe me, it costs a BUNCH to rescue a dog, I've pulled them out of pounds right and left, you pay the adoption fee yourself, the med/vet fee yourself, and you're lucky if you get 5 cents. You just feel grateful a little life is saved. Elyse! this is just the best, you go big time, and good on you! big love, Hillary

"40% contained" means the fire is less than half contained? And yet mandatory evacuations have been 'downgraded" to "evacuation alert" so that people can "repopulate" their homes?. Moving back into areas of "evacuation alert" still means you have to be ready to leave, doesn't it? Why is everyone moving back into alert areas and unpacking, when this fire is not fully contained? I don't get this. And there is no up to date map, or any information that I can find - anywhere - that shows what is going on as of this moment. A little frustrating.
