Evil may wear a suit and hire an attorney, but I don't see why this guy is walking the streets. No bail. Lock him up and throw away the key.

On Higher Bail Denied for Man Charged with Beating Girlfriend and Puppy

Reason number 1 why you should try El Bajio: the food is tasty, and the owners are good people. They first opened in the mid nineties, a hard working immigrant family, so they are hardly part of a "gentrification" movement. All of you whining about taxation, at an average of $250/year, that's about $21 per month per business, well worth it, and the businesses would get that back many folds if customers felt safe and enticed to patronize Milpas. However, I do share concerns about seeing Milpas turn into the cultural yawn that State Street has become.

Please leave the weeds in your lawn, learn to love an occasional dandelion, read the labels before buying pest controls, and never use chemical fertilizers nor pesticides before a rain event. Really, unless you are a commercial grower subject to financial pressures and would otherwise lose your crop, stop buying chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers.
Your garden will look just as nice without them, though you may have to switch to hardier plant varieties in some cases.

Either way, the joke was in poor taste.

Ms Kreis should never be allowed to drive again. How she can be categorized as a non-violent offender while operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, with a history of felonies spanning 20 years is beyond me. 5 years in prison, 2000 hours of community service, and lifelong revocation of the right to drive would seem a more appropriate minimum sentence. I guess it helps to be white and female.

I saw a shiny car with a douche bag (still in the box, fresh from the store) on the hood the other day. Maybe it was Barry Capello's car?

On Jury Deliberating Over Cab Company’s Role in Fatal Hit-and-Run

I really don't see how the cab driver or the cab company are at fault in any way. Chavez got so drunk that he couldn't tell he had walked onto the freeway? How is that anyone's fault but his own, and perhaps that of whoever poured him drinks after he was obviously past the legal limit, unless he drank alone? The cab driver did what he could. Once Chavez stepped out and waived him off, what was the cab driver supposed to do? Babysit Chavez for the rest of the night? Tragic as the story is, this suit should have been thrown out of court a long time ago.

Taste of Milpas is great, some of the best and most affordable food in town is in the Milpas neighborhood.

Maybe instead of a giant new jail, we should have built a good mental health facility. Over 50% of criminals have some mental issues anyway, and it sounds as though some of our local officials might also benefit from a stay.

Smoking bans don't apply in Chumash sovereign territory, so the casino reeks of tobacco. Nice for the workers, isn't it?
