I didn't know about his work with the Living Room, but he was/is a good and honest contractor.

I think the problem is there are too many victimless crimes and so too many people in jail. America locks up far too many people. So I will vote against it. Anyway, If they want a new jail, they can take my share out of my property taxes.

Bicycling has improved my quality of life immensely, and I run my errands by bike. The main reason non-cyclists tell me they don't bike is the safety issue - too many wild motorists. Better police enforcement of traffic rules would go a long way.

It's interesting the Mr. Sterling does not tell us that AOAG, his company, stands for Arctic Oil And Gas.

To comment on some of his points, items 1 through 5 are unsupported self-serving comments. Where's the evidence? Further, many people believe that energy prices should be even higher than they are, via a carbon tax, which would be offset by a decrease in, say, income tax. This seems to be the only way to decrease consumption.

Points 6 - 9 - less pollution from natural seepage - again, where's the footnote directing me to the supporting data?

Points 12 and 13, I agree that more offshore drilling would provide more good-paying jobs and enhance the treasury, but the environmental price is too high.

And as to points 16 and 17, they are just sops to the commmunity that will probably never come true. How about AOAG builds all that infrastructure and put a few billion in our treasury first? Then we can talk contract.

Prolonging our addiction to oil is only going to make the day of reckoning more painful. Let's bite the bullet now and hope that future generations will not speak too harshly of us.

It's hard to argue with people that want to split off and form their own government. Self-determination - that's a big deal for Americans.

I have to agree with RCMeltzer, the Independent is doing a great job.

Wow, a lot of soot in my S. Noleta driveway this morning, and strong smoky smell.

Keeping fingers crossed . . .
