Yes; next door, in fact. Did you not see any of the earlier coverage about this? See today's Daily Sound for more details.

Independent editors, can't you give your newbies a crash course on local place names? First "Mission Valley," then "Anacapa Park." Please.

And that comment is presumably written by a college student. God help us all.

On What's Wrong with Fun?

I really want to like Jill's Place but have been disappointed. The last two times we ate there, the sirloin I ordered medium rare was overcooked and dry. It took a long time to get the attention of the waitstaff so I could send it back, and a very long time to get a replacement steak that wasn't much better. A frustrating experience and a sad waste of Shalhoob's excellent beef. Now we buy their sirloin at Tri-county Produce and grills it at home -- far better than I've ever had in their restaurant.

Mourning doves do not eat worms. Seeds are 99% of their diet, with insects eaten only rarely. Does the Pet Psychic have any greater insight into domestic animals' thoughts than into those of wild animals?

On Some Like It Wet

Silvercloud, we've been through all this before. SBBG is a GARDEN, not a "natural area." Nearly everything growing there was planted on purpose, and the buildings have been inadequate for years. The Garden cannot carry out its research and education missions if the collections, classrooms and Library are moved off-site to various scattrered locations. While there are a few things in the Vital Mission Plan I'm not totally pleased with, it's time to move forward, not keep going around and around in the same circles. Grrr....

On High Noon in the Garden of Controversy

Right you are, Nitz:
"Board member Robinson makes the same disastrous mistake in the article that others are making here in the comments, confusing support for/hostility to Schnieder, Symington and the Board, with support for/hostility to the VMP. Robinson justifies ignoring all criticism of the Board as mere hostility to the Plan."
These are two separate issues. Many people DO support the one but not the other.

ljp, you have another chance to see it this Wednesday at the Museum of Natural History, 7:30 pm, and meet Ernestine and the others who brought this story to reality. DVDs of "Six Generations" will also be for sale at the Museum

We've always carried Medaglia de Oro instant; not as good as real coffee, but better than most instants. And yes, coffee is really that important.

On Starbucks Leaves a Bad Taste in a Very Needy Guy

micaelm, why can't you people grasp the fact that SBBG is NOT a "natural public place." It is a GARDEN, which means nearly everything there was planted on purpose. Also, it's a private nonprofit institution, despite being open to the public. It is not a public park!
