Why does it need a person's name? What's wrong with "Santa Barbara Airport"?

No Excuse... but I did notice that all the Ladies were (allegedly) raped by this guy.
Had he not raped them maybe they wouldn't have gotten raped.
Is there a lesson here?

The store is "moving to" lower State Street? From where? Shouldn't that be "opening on" lower State Street?

Goleta does not need an ice skating rink. I'd rather our taxes go to support a park or some other public space that would be open to everyone. I appreciate that there are folks out there like The Eeebs who like to play ice hockey, but that doesn't mean that a skate rink should be build on public lands with public support. It would be a better service to the community to put something there with more universal appeal.

Appeal, JohnLocke? I suppose the fact that he actually committed the offense doesn't really matter, does it?

This is not a good deal, and it should be opposed. More of our forests should be protected, and not at the expense of opening up other areas to increased degradation. For too long we have pillaged too many of our pristine natural resources. It is time that we preserve them, to ensure that they will be able to be enjoyed by future generations. These forests aren't here for our immediate and temporary enjoyment, to be used at the expense of our grandchildren. Our legacy should be the gift we give to the future, which has been here for generations before any of us stepped foot in this area.

The issue of privacy is paramount in this siutation. Contrary to the naiive notions that smart meters simply record "that Bob Smith used 327 kilowatt-hours last month" or "they just do what the analog meters do", in fact they do far more than that. They are, after all, "smart".
By having an interactive interface with the power company, the smart meters transmit data constantly. The data collected allows the power companies to not only measure consumption, but also to analyze usage patterns... when you turn on/off appliances, when you are home, when you are asleep, when you are on vacation, etc., etc.
This type of surveilance is an invasion of privacy. And this data can be shared with anyone that the power company wishes to strike a deal with. Worse than that, the data is freely available to anyone who can intercept the radio signal. Police in some jurisdictions are already using this data for surveilance -- without a warrant. Wiretapping is illegal in all 50 states, but there are no laws regulating the use of this data.
