Wow this is a really interesting read for a few different reasons.
1. You wonder if the the litigious hobbies of the uber rich will ever come into play? Remember that show Celebrity Deathmatch? Wendy vs Ty.
2. The whole eccentric MJ no friends alienated kids crappy sibling childhood Howard Hughes mean mom thing is pretty gnarly.
3. The way a fad takes over speculative buying. It actually reminds me of the music industry in the way there is an effort to create a "buzz" about a band even if they are crappy as all get out.

Great article Indy. I hope there are is no weird backlash like the Montecito Journal received. But then again, who cares, that is why they call it the Independent right?

Screw the neighbors on street parking. If they live out there, they should have a driveway big enough to accommodate normal needs. Won't I get a ticket if I park on "their" street currently? If they want to have a party, hire a valet service like anyone else out there. Too bad so sad Montecito, now you are going to get a taste of what is like to be in Goleta. Just wait until the freeway work is being done at the same time construction is going on. Look at the bright side, maybe Justin Bieber will come stay at the hotel when it is done.

Next @#$%ing April? are you kidding me? I agree with Greg, at last someone is trying, but much in the way Cal Trans chief came by and put the kibosh on the left hand exits, I think they should have a word with Union Pacific. I think the key word/problem in that title UNION Pacific is UNION. Further more, I didn't know that a TV has such sensitive feelings that it can't travel the tracks in off business hours. Shortsightedness on the Union Pacific peoples part. Less commuting time means more time for people to consume the crap that goes on their trains.

On All Aboard the Commuter Rail?

the drought? I thought it was all the crap people were buying at Home Depot and spraying around in their back yards?

Too many episodes of the Walking Dead.

On Weapons Charges for Standoff Suspect

So much negativity..I think this is a start albeit a very late one. A commuter rail line next to the regular tracks is the ticket. Probably could use a smaller train too instead of gigantic antiquated amtrak monsters. Sounds silly, but think monorail Disneyland people. This would be a boom for down town business all those people being dropped off at the train station, and you could probably put a few more stops in. Look at the Carp train station. Takes 10 minutes from SB, instead of the 45 you all sit and burn gas in your cars. Instead of an inner city subway, create one along the tracks with numerous stops. I believe this should be done before the 101 project is started. It is funny, the high tech world of the USA, all the UCSB technology and innovation and we want to go with 1950's locomotive technology or even worse, just let it sit there idle during rush hours. Does it piss any off you off while you sit there (0 mph) and watch empty giant antique trains go by? I see this high speed rail project as a misallocation of funds and resources, instead a central coast commuter line should be done. It is amazing to me local business does not not get behind this 1000%. Regarding tack use, there has to be away to cut who ever is in charge in on the deal. Let the business sharks earn their keep and do their thing.

Regarding the 101, lots of Cal Trans surveyors doing their jobs the last couple weeks from SB to Carp. Yay! Oh and it looks like someone is cleaning up that dump of a freeway in Montecito. Funny, with all the $$ there, no one would do a sponsor the highway gig and clean up that dump.

I love this guy! We need him back here now to have a look some of the SBPD all stars and their shenanigans and the DA's lack of will to do anything about it.

Well regardless who owns the tracks, a couple trains running during rush hour each way would probably be a scheduling hurdle that could be jumped, or add another line next to the existing track. Seems pretty foolish to look over and see idle train tracks during rush hours when cars are lined up 5 to 10 miles deep going 10mph.

Actually Samblabababblebuttface (OMG I have resorted to name calling too!), you have made a number of assumptions about me, none of which I will address, but I will say am on the outside looking in regarding prop 13. This is why I stated that I think prop 13 should be reevaluated. I totally agree with your comment, but I am not sure at the age of 50 if you are set at all. I think you are about 10 years off (60) unless you were very lucky. The bummer about prop 13 is that many of our boomers are now on a set income and an abrupt change in property taxes might send a few over the side.
