I don't think an expensive permit would work. Even a $500 annual parking permit is cheaper than paying to store one's crap at a storage facility. These storage lockers on wheels (ratty old vans) take up extremely necessary parking spaces and shouldn't be allowed at all.

The fact that Maldo is the best the Republicans can do is why I left the party years and years ago. Between the religious element that hijacked the Republican party during the Reagan era, and the smarmy hangers-on like Maldo, the GOP seems hell-bent on self-destruction. Maldo is a Democrat's dream--a highly beatable candidate who will seemingly run for any office.

For more on the McCormicks, read T.C. Boyle's "Riven Rock." It's a quasi-fictitious account of those wacky--and I DO mean wacky''--McCormicks, who, McCormick's mental illness aside (or maybe because of it), seemed to be early Montecito's premier fun couple. "Riven Rock" is one of the most interesting books ever written about early SB.

I wonder if the Jackson woman got similarly riled when the very next day on "Chelsea Lately," a bunch of Chelsea Handler regulars did a parody song directed at men, called "They Showed Us Their Junk."

I find this whole horse meat thing quite amusing. During and immediately after WWII you could buy horse meat at pet stores, ostensibly to feed your dog or cat. "Real" meat was rationed during that period, so my mom--and I'm sure others--would go to Downie's Pet Store (on Milpas Street, as I recall) and buy horse meat to feed us. Even though I was just a tot at the time I do recall eating horse meat as pot roast. It was actually quite nice. Horses, cows, pigs--I really don't see what the big deal is. It's all mighty tasty.

Why in the world is this joke still here? Is there nothing we can do to get rid of him? Is the City Council really THAT obtuse that they can't see Sanchez is a liability? Oh...wait. Never mind.

It costs $72,000 to see if signs are still reflectorized? Really? You can't just send a staff worker out for an afternoon or nighttime drive to tell if a sign is still reflectorized? Gawd!! Your tax $$$ at work!
I'll tell you one thing: the street signs along Milpas Street are so faded they're now completely unreadable. The tourists must really like that. How's about taking some of that $72K and replacing the signs that very obviously NEED replacing?

This was approved despite the fact that the majority of community members who offered input were against renaming the terminal for Rickard. The key steamroller behind the renaming was Marianne Partridge, publisher of the Independent, who is apparently some sort of relative of Rickard. Just what SB needs--another newspaper publisher who uses her paper as a tool to get what she wants. My respect for the Independent has dropped about 10 points.
