I totally disagree with the above comments. Barbara Boxer is at the top of her game and is an example of where experience is a good thing, not a bad thing.
Her small business plan would give tax breaks to those who hire unemployed workers, her environmental stances are real and she is a much better choice than the competition.
I saw her speak yesterday in Santa Barbara and she is smart, compelling and she walks her talk.

We practice a combination of "natural medicine" and western medicine and I found this book very helpful in its pragmatic approach to explaining the philosophy and application of various alternative healing approaches.
Thank you Ms. Gruver for a very thoughtful and straight forward book, without any "woo".

I truly hope the person that did this will come forward, or be found. With so many witnesses, I doubt people are afraid to come forward, even if the murderer is in a gang.
If it was a gang member who did it, it adds such a layer of complexity. Gang violence is so tragic and in a way, driven by economics and societal breakdown. I am reading Enrique's Journey right now, a Santa Barbara Reads book, and it touches upon how gangs come into existence--a long broken chain of dysfunction, poverty, lack of opportunity and abuse, combined with a sense of belonging and safety that gangs provide. I'm sure there are many more details to it.
The hardest thing to understand is the sociopath, if that is the right term for people who have no conscience, or ability to determine right from wrong, or those void of feelings about the value of human life. Are people actually born like this, or is it a result of wearing down of feelings and values for others over a lifetime of tragic situations?
Now that more and more gang activity is spilling over the boarder, we rely on our police and laws to protect us, but how do we get at the root of the problem? And who is the "we" in this case?
I am so sorry for this loss of a human being and my heart goes out to his family and friends.

What an amazing organization! I am so inspired by what they do for the community! Today, I will be donating $1 of every bicycle handkerchief sale to Bici Centro at the Lime Green Monkey / Women's Economic Venture Booth at Santa Barbara Earth Day, from 11am to 5pm today, (Sunday, April 18th). And, $1 of every online bicycle sale for the rest of April.
Thank you for all of the work Bici Centro does in our community to promote cycling, educate all ages about cycling and teaching us not only how to ride better, but how to repair our own bikes and empower people in the process!
