Given where the dominant educational model has taken our country: governmental corruption and incompetence, "rectal hydration" and other repugnant torture of prisoners, popular fascination with silly "selfies" and "reality" shows, gang rapes on university campuses, police brutality, institutionalized racism, and other niceties, it seems like maybe we could use a few more Waldorf School graduates in the mix. We sure could use a resetting of our moral compass.

Jarvis, why the hate speech? Have you or has anyone in your family tried Waldorf education and found it lacking? Just curious.

Key pieces of information are missing from this piece: Who are the owners? To whom are they selling the building? For how much? Was Frank Goss offered the chance to purchase it? Why does the sale of the building mean the end of Arts & Letters Cafe (the new owners could have renewed the lease)?
Where are we to go for a lovely lunch at a reasonable price once Arts & Letters closes? When are they closing?

I would have voted for Justin Fareed, but no way I would ever vote for Mitchum. As for Capps, she is a snooze, but I voted for her because Mitchum is repellent.
Too bad Kashkari didn't win, we could use a smart young Governor in Sacramento.

Thank you Peter Adam for the injection of sanity. I love dogs, but come on, there are enough good dogs who need homes to waste time and resources on dangerous ones.

We need a diversified approach that includes water conservation, water capture, storage, and possibly the desalination plant.
All new construction and major remodels should include grey water systems, rain catching cisterns, and drought tolerant landscaping.
Replace impermeable paving with permeable paving systems on sidewalks, bike paths, and other lightly traveled roadways.
We reduced water use by 60% at our house this year by letting the lawn die, buying a high efficiency washing machine, putting a bucket in the shower to catch water that we then use on plants, and just being mindful whenever we turn on a faucet.
Still, it would be nice if it rained.

The root cause is not unmarried parenting. The root cause is too many men's view of women as personal possessions rather than as independent human beings.
