Rape is not sex. Rape is violent assault.

The man is a repulsive brute and a criminal, but his crimes have nothing to do with his national origin nor immigration status, so keep your racism to yourself, please. It only adds to the depressing image of human nature described in the article.

Whitecrow I think your math is off:
Assuming $5/hcf cost of desal water.
There are 43,560 HCFs in 1 acre/foot.
43,560 * $5 = $217,800.00 per acre/foot, not $2,178.00.
So at $5/HCF desal isn't 3 times more expensive than buying fresh water from Kern County at $700/acre/foot, it is 311 times more expensive. At $2/HCF it still would be $87,120 per acre foot, and 124 times more expensive than buying fresh water. Even for Montecito wallets, that's a lot more money, and all in all a stupid idea.

Some years ago a friend of mine with threatened with jail by a local Superior Court judge for refusing to allow her four year old daughter to get in the car when the child's father showed up visibly inebriated to pick up his daughter for his weekly visitation. I might add that the man had a history of violent abuse. Anyone wonder if this woman just felt she had no other choice but to disappear in order to protect her little girls?

It sounds as though no one locally has heard of the new State law Governor Jerry Brown signed this year, mandating sustainable management of groundwater resources. There is no legal definition to the term :sustainable", so that will have to be adjudicated, but the days of just drilling a well and pumping water from the aquifer no matter what the environmental consequences are soon to be over.
