So what's your solution, Holly? As Hank often points out, quite well, there is a large difference between homeless, who do need programs and help, and bums who just want to pursue their lifestyle in a nice climate and target-rich destination for panhandling. The agencies seem to be making an industry out of that latter set, while the first group has serious trouble getting the help they need. Not because the services aren't there, but because the out-of-town set is using them. I am not sure why it's set up so you can take a bus from Texas to here, and be entitled to housing in Santa Barbara. But what solutions are you proposing?

The title is wrong. They approved flashing YELLOW lights, not red.

No offense taken. I reread that letter after your post, and realized I had internally corrected in my mind's eye 'assistant' in place of 'associate' when reading the darned thing. I have long struggled with intuiting what people want to say, and learned to overlook mistakes in what they actually said, or wrote, in this case.

Ken, you must not have ever worked on a film project with a decent-sized crew. AD positions have been around in Hollywood for years. They're basically assistants to the director, working the grunt and gritty details of shoots. They hope to be directors some day, but learn the ropes as an Assistant Director. None of that info legitimizes Mitchum as a candidate for Congress, however. He's still a poor choice, AD or not.

SBWPC is only interested in getting leftwing liberal Dems elected. Gender is secondary to their cause. I could not see them endorsing a decline-to-state or Republican female, even if she were pro-choice, if there was a liberal Dem male like Das or Grant in the same race.

'Fighting for women's issues'....Das???? Are you effin' kidding me? Only when, just like strip clubs, he can exploit them for gain. This is a total crack-up: let's tax a business that exploits women...and say we're helping women! From the SacBee (much better reporting on this than the recently lame Indy): "Men will continue to go to strip bars," he told the Bee. "And you know what? They'll feel better about it because they'll be funding a needed service for women." Totally. Tone. Deaf. Totally. I wonder how Susan Jordan and Janet Wolf feel about the way Das fights for women's issues.

On Man Arrested for Violent Attack on Transient

THIS is the most pressing problem California faces? Sugar drinks in schools? And schools are, what, powerless, to do something about it without the aid of SuperDas? The arguments for a part-time legislature are sure starting to look good...

An attack ON a transient is big news for the Indy. Multiple assaults BY transients on everyday citizens...cue the crickets.
