Hopemayberry nailed it. Sadly by the time these highly agile thugs reach college they are untouchable as far as teaching any ethics and treated like rockstars. A whole bunch of entitled Justin Beiber's on roids. As they are coddled through school, while any normal student has to work their ass off, it seems many have a problem with the most basic of phonics in speech. Or maybe they just talk funny to be cool? What is the end product of this machine? A highly agile, poorly educated, entitled and now angry (because they didn't make it) wannabe pro athlete/criminal with a chip on their shoulder? The college athletic system needs to grow a pair of balls and teeth and start thinking about the long term well being of it's students rather than the big business of college athletics. One thing I do like about UCSB is that it seems to hold it's athletes to task as far as grades and the athletic monster hasn't grown out of control...yet.

I wonder how the Habit would fair against the infamous Jalama burger? We need to have a burger-off. Both outstanding.

Walking down state street last night, I heard a commotion. Noticed tall skinny motorcycle cop with bad attitude blocking off the street. Looked behind him and noticed a mob (27 people) chanting..."Katich Sucks!" I felt like I was at the Santa Barbara Super Bowl. Battle of the titans. Yawn.
On <em>News-Press</em> Vandalized for 'Illegals' Headline

The politically correct jury has spoken. There is nothing inaccurate with the term illegal immigrant. Remember how we all got a talking to about using the term Illegal Alien? I am wondering how would they all vote to have their behavior described? Latino migrants that have chosen to ignore the law? I would say if anything the only guilty party here is the New Press Brass being morons and writing something that would knowingly inflame a local latino population that has ties to ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION as a front page TOP HEADLINE. One can only ponder if one of the picketers signs read: "Wendy, who mows your lawn?" They made their bed, now they can lie in it.

JarvisJarvis..I want to press the like button on your comment. Mr. Dozer actually seemed to have a good grasp on many of the cases he ran and manged the press well too which is a daunting task itself. I hope as the top comment mentions that Dozer puts his efforts somewhere further, perhaps in a Police Conduct Commission to review some misconduct cases since there is no real independent oversight in existence. Maybe he is just done and ready to enjoy retirement.

Helene made her bed. When she has Marshall and Rose speaking out against her ridiculous moves, she needs to take heed. The sharks are circling. She needs to pull her head out of the sand and look at the big picture rather than the few yappy gimlets in Montecito. Geeze Independent, that one picture looks like JR is trying to smooch her!

Gosh Helene, you seem to know more about traffic than anyone! This is painful to read. Were you having another blonde moment? Is this article more about ego than fact? The bottleneck is ridiculous and last I checked every freeway exit has a stop light on it. So if there were a back up problem, wouldn't that end up on the freeway itself and be controllable by the settings on the lights?
On Highway Project Promises to Ruin City Traffic

Awesome! Maybe this will slow down some of the mansion momentum out there. Who is going to want their mansion right next to a thriving oil field? Now if the State will shove 3 lanes through Montecito, and make the Gaviota coast up to Point Conception a state park we may be getting somewhere. I will say it is ironic in light of the fact that there are Marine Protected Areas (MPA's) immediately to both sides of this.

I agree JarvisJarvis, the MPC is bummed they don't have as much money as Slick Rick and it is turning into and entertaining ego driven sword fight. GAME ON!
On Miramar Languishes in Limbo Amid Parking Concerns

Ok, you got me. Part me of can't wait to watch the fur fly after it is built and Montecito gets its own little version of the Camino Real Marketplace because it will absolutely become a traffic parking cluster#%$. The other part of me would like to see some hot SLAPP action. Either way, it is fun to watch people with $$ squirm and get a dose of reality. I don't think that is anarchy, I think it is karma. Or they can all just play nice. Yeah right.
