My 84-year old neighbor who lives downstairs from me was struck by a car last year, breaking both of her legs (in multiple places). Luckily, she's got a lot of spunk and has recovered rather well. I'm not sure if something like a bulb-out would have helped her (or Mr. Brilliant), but I'm in full support of efforts to make our city's streets safer for pedestrians (and bicyclists).

Thank goodness for the Coastal Commission! I'm glad that someone is invested in protecting our natural resources, and has not yet been bought out.

Could you please elaborate on this statement: "The election’s office is hoping to reach 70 percent participation in this year’s general election, a little bit higher than the historical turnout of about 65 percent in gubernatorial elections every four years."
A voter participation rate of 70% seems extraordinarily high, especially for a non-presidential election year. Does this mean a 70% response rate for just the mail-in ballots? If so, this should be made more clear.

First, the so-called "Ground Zero mosque" is actually located in an area within several blocks radius in the vicinity of the World Trade Center. It is densely populated, and incredibly diverse: it already includes a couple mosques, along with strip clubs and hundreds of other buildings. The proposed mosque is actually only one part of an entire community center,
Also, despite how 9-11 has been portrayed, the act of terrorism was not an act of war between "Muslims" and the U.S. It was the act of a group of people who do not in any way represent all Muslims. The would-be builders of the mosque and those who would worship there cannot and should not be held responsible for the actions of others, even if the terrorists acted in the name of Islam. Those behind the attack would like the world to think that the U.S. is at war with Islam. By opposing their religious freedom in building the Islamic community center, we are proving they are right.
