As far as Grant running again, he is termed out. So please tamp down your revenge fantasies.
On House Not “Snookered”

Really? You want this guy to state his re-election intentions before he replaces a guy who was seeking to leave his post from the get go ( during both terms) and never intended to serve out either term? And perhaps someone should publish a list of the progressive/non-progressive restaurants and bars, the political ties of their owners so everyone can do the right thing. Hell, why stop at that, every business should have to post their stand on all pressing issues in a position paper in their windows. It might be little labor intensive in terms of enforcement but at least we would know what to do when we need to eat, drink or shop. Now that is a Santa Barbara with values! Really?

The previous poster has no clue what they are talking about. I was there and the professionalism it takes to treat the victim, the driver, protect all of their rights and preserve a crime scene while someone's life drains away, you can't possibly understand. This is serious, don't be so cavalier.

On Community Mourns a Man of the Mesa

Balash compares his defense of a pedophile to a recent murder case. Are you kidding? The 14 year old in the other case ran after another boy, stabbed him repeatedly in the back and killed him. In broad daylight, downtown. In this case the 13 year old was the repeated victim of a pedophile, Balash's client, almost 30 years older than him. Hope this clears up the difference for you Balash.

Why are there no comments from the DA's office on this case in the article? Balash had free reign with no counterpoint from the prosecutors.

If Balash is reduced to this level of rationalization with this sick woman, it is time to retire. He sounds like a complete fool.

Okay Bill Clauson, I understand.

"In some cultures" 7 year olds are making Nikes for pretentious Santa Barbarans who are so, so above the fray. Cut the relativism. This isn't Thailand. This isn't anthropology class. This is Santa Barbara Superior Court. 12 felonies, deal with it.

Before leaving this discussion I want to pose a question for the apologists: What if there turns out to be more boys? 2 or 3 or 4 or 5? It is still then some roll in the hay adventure or will you then think that maybe, just maybe a crime has been committed?
