I pee outside in my back yard all the time. Not only does it feel great, it keeps away the skunks and saves water. A win-win-win!

This is getting interesting. While I hate the thought of a carpetbagger like Laura (who just moved back from DC so she can run for mommy's seat) winning, because I agree with others the whole dynastic politics thing sucks, I think it would be entertaining to watch someone not-predestined by the local Dems take them on. Their whole world might collapse. After all, which candidate will the public employee unions dump money on this time? A real nail-biter, all so we can get continued mediocrity in our representation.

Sounds like, at the very, very least they need to put the entire No. County Jail project on hold until they can re-assess the situation. If they truly need a facility in the north county, I would think it could be designed so that a much smaller facility is constructed, with the plan that expansion could be done at some point in the future if it truly becomes necessary. The mere fact that he's thinking of housing 600 inmates in the new facility and only 300 in the main jail tells you this isn't being planned out correctly.

A few corrections:
1. Steve Vandenberg is not Gregg Hart's assistant at SBCAG. They are in differing roles, and both report to Jim Kemp, the SBCAG Executive Director.
2. You always seem to quote Rob Dayton. Why is it that a mid-level staffer gets so much press, and willingly offers comment as if he represents the City? One might ask if he has an agenda other than the City's? Last I checked, the Council sets the policy and staff implements the policy.
3. If you get into the weeds of the various analyses, you'd notice the traffic data Rob uses to make his arguments is an unreliable, inaccurate subset of the regional traffic data shown in the report.
Can we move the project forward at this point? This has now gotten beyond ridiculous.

@Hershel, that's an understatement.
"I used to sweep the barges". Yeah, like John Boehner used to sweep up the family's bar as a kid. Sure you did.

Anyone remember our beloved city council member Cathy Murrillo standing arm-in-arm in solidarity with PODER during the gang injunction trial? I do, and when she's up for re-election next time I'll be sure to send her back to the hood.

Least believable exaggeration? That it had a chance of passing.

Why hasn't the Board of Supervisors been keeping this in check? Why is the Sheriff acting so autonomously in acquiring this gear? Why are we and not the local media/journalists/reporters making this investigative inquiries?

I was there as well and loved the show, even more than during their last visit. Wasn't impressed at all by the opening band.
