Thank you, Steve, and your Christian brothers. Your mom and dad would have been proud of you. Dang, you look so much like your dad. Say hi to Suzie for me.

Loonpt, Bill Holzer was a good person who was trying to keep his family together. Stop your terrible postings. Your behavior is so hateful. This is such a tragedy. I don't know if Bill and his wife Sheila knew how ill their son was but Bill was working at age 73 to keep the family fed, clothed and housed.Your hateful comments make me cry.You are an awful person.

This is about assault. The prof assaulted people. Anti- abortion folks assault folks who disagree with them. That is why the 8 foot bubble ordinance should stand.I used to live 2 doors away from the doc at Planned Parenthood. He later moved where the major assaults to him occurred. Nevertheless, the anti abortion protesters used to block my car as I tried to drive down the street. The last straw broke when they assaulted my son coming home from Mt. View school on his bike. He came in the house crying. That's when one should call 911. I went outside and told them that I was going to do just that if they didn't disperse. They did. 8 ft it is!

I used to live in Santa Barbara and now live on Whidbey Island where there is a naval air station. On the central part of the island, there is an outlying field where the pilots train to do landings on a small strip the size of an aircraft carrier. The practice landings were over twice the number that the environmental impact statement included in its very old EIR. A citizens group had to sue the Navy to get them to update the EIR. I hope the Navy is more forthcoming with folks about what is happening on the islands but letting Rep. Capps and your senators know how you feel may be the only way to get more information.

I used to live 2 doors down from the doc mentioned in the article. Protesters used to block the street and harass drivers and cyclists. They stopped my son on his way home from elementary school. I went out and told them to get the heck off the street or I would call the Sheriff. They left.I don't know how protesters behave in other places but assault charges might be in order. Trying to harass children is also an issue. Free speech is okay and 8 feet seems reasonable.

http://www.cis.org/vaughan/obama-depo... Sorry some folks believe Obama and Napolitano. Deportations are, way down. I have no faith in Napolitano. She lies. These facts are neither Republican nor Democratic. They are federal government facts.I hope Napolitano is better at solving the problem in UC campuses than she was as head of DHS. She was dreadful.

I hope she is better at this than she was at controlling the border when she was DHS head.

The mental health team is great. I volunteered hundreds of hours for mental health non profits and I also worked for the County. This is a very difficult issue trying to balance treatment and protection with the right not to be locked up for being mentally ill. In my experience, mental health professionals are the best folks to do psych evaluations about who is a danger to himself or others under Ca. Welfare and institutions code 5150.Also, parents have a hard time because they love their children and fail to take aggressive steps to protect people from their potentially dangerous children. I think that this may have been a problem. Last, checking mental health issues should be required for gun purchase. This would have tipped off law enforcement about the danger this man posed.

Public sector labor laws are not the same as private sector labor laws. Ditto pension laws. To change the retirement systems would require the state to change the laws. There are many, many differences in public sector and private sectorlaws. Even retirement systems differ among city, county and university employment. Nevertheless, unfunded liability of pensions in both public and private sector pension plans is a huge problem.
