You are certainly seem to be living up to your name today.
Randy is a very thoughtful guy but his letter is little more than a hit and run piece against Hillary's candidacy.
She will be the best prepared candidate for President we have ever had and certainly one of the smartest as well yet electing her as the first female President will not be easy even with such credentials because of tactics such as this which are simply desperate attempts to undermine her chances
I find electing a female to this office to be a bigger hurdle than the election of a President of color was in electing Obama in 2008.
Gender discrimination not only widely exists in all of business and society today (as does racial discrimination of course) but it is not yet as universally eschewed and opposed as is racial discrimination
Hillary wining the Presidency in 2016, which she will most certainly do if she choose to run, will do much to assist in the important battle for gender equality and advance the cause of women everywhere.

I disagree points.
It is more analogous to the harm to a woman that might result from an illegal back room abortion in a place where otherwise legal abortions are prohibited
The abortion is most certainly going to take place but the potential for harm is far greater when it is outlawed

Actually Foo, if by chance it happens to be true that the Rim Fire was indeed caused by an illegal pot operation in the back country, the continued illegality of pot would bear the primary blame since such remote operations would not otherwise exist if growing pot were not illegal.

It appears that the proverbial apple fell rather near the tree.
Sarcasm clearly runs in your DNA!

I am delightfully surprised that only one cranky comment about Starshine's atheism was posted.
We devout atheists usually experience a far more vitriolic response.

Cant you people at least spell my name correctly?
I proudly use my real name which is more than most of you can claim.
The evidence I have seen does not appear to support the claim that a right exit would be safer.
I don't belong to any Country Clubs and I don't live in Montecito
I agree that improved signage and an earlier placement of signs indicating a "left exit ahead at Hot Springs" would be of significant assistance in eliminating this confusion
Maybe CALTRANS does want that confusion to remain as justification for their right lane exit plan.

Nick it appears that you have been misled on this matter and are now misleading others.
The issue of which plan should be used by CALTRANS directly concerns all of us in the South Coast and not simply those who may live in Montecito.
For those of us who live west/north of the Hot Springs freeway exit on 101, the length of time the freeway be closed or significantly impacted by this construction work (read that as very badly congested all day not just during normal commute times and summer weekends) will be reduced by approximately two and a half years if the alternate plan is adopted retaining the left lane exits.
For any business in Santa Barbara or Goleta, the direct economic impact of that two and a half year period will be significant, as employee retention and morale will decline, customers will find alternate retailers and services, and tourism in general will be reduced.
The burden of that additional two and a half year period will be felt by each and every one of us, not simply by those who live in Montecito whom you have unfairly chastised.
Additionally, there are plenty of well functioning left lane freeway exits elsewhere in California and the accident and safety rate at this specific one is better than the right-lane exits nearby.
In short there is little to support the rigid and unyielding view of CALTANS.

Children don't learn by what we tell them or the rules we impose upon them but rather by watching and observing the way we live our own lives.
That does not mean we should set no rules or fail to tell them what choices we think might be the better ones.
It only means that they will learn to respect themselves and others more easily if we show them that respect and show them that we also respect others as well.
Tracking devices may make us feel more secure but it will make our children feel less secure, less self-sufficient and less independent.
If our job is to make them independent, secure, self-sufficient and whole adults, we need to start by trying to live that way ourselves and not by becoming domineering fearful and controlling parents.

Barney, we are all atheists
Some are atheists as to nearly all religions, and chauvinistic believers in only one chosen religion.
Others are atheists as to all religions and chauvinistic believers in none.
That means they are atheistic as to only one more religion than the others.
It is all a matter of degree.
