Giovanni's is phenomenal, I nostalgically remember eating pizza across from McKenzie Park after little league games, many decades ago. Enjoy the new location on the Mesa. Really wish they had a delivery service though.

Rusty's is the old (but greasy) standby and I also enjoy Paesano's Pizzeria, which has great dough.

I hear if you want a New York style slice (terrible service included,) you should try Rocco's on Lower State.

I am simply overwhelmed with sympathy for the Indoor Tanning Association. All these tears are making my spray tan wash right off.

Have we no compassion for the pigmentally-challenged?

You do realize that "Fight For Your Right to Party" was made to PARODY frat-boy party attitudes, right?

'Mike D commented that, "The only thing that upsets me is that we might have reinforced certain values of some people in our audience when our own values were actually totally different. There were tons of guys singing along to 'Fight for Your Right' who were oblivious to the fact it was a total goof on them." '

So... what's your suggestion, Chris?

Slaughter the otter? Send them back to Alaska?

This article reads like a bunch of whining coming from someone who feels more entitled to abalone than a mammal that actually lives in the ocean.

I'm pretty certain that bicycle helmets are not appropriate safety attire for trail maintenance.

Articles like this are why I don't bother with Ray Ford anymore. I got absolutely no value from reading the above.

The article has a misleading/ erroneous (decaf? bad taste? huh?) title: Ray likes the taste of the VIA just fine "it's really pretty good." He then proceeds to whine about the price without researching it at all - VIA can be bought at a steep discount at Costco and other retailers, bringing the cost way down.

For someone who claims to value coffee in the wilderness so much, Ray does not seem to be a very educated consumer.

Last time I bother to stop in, I promise.

No tears from these eyes... Surprised this wasn't done a long time ago.

I guess the Isla Vista community can directly blame the Floatopia organizers for this one... See, kids, your actions DO have consequences!

"... the freedom to post & hide behind a screen name such as you're more than likely doing"

You're a funny guy - were you planning on disclosing that you write for the Independent or were you going to continue to hide behind your screen name?

Apparently it's OK for you to have an opinion but not for anyone else, especially if they don't like your agenda. Looks like you might be the biggest hypocrite here.

Also, what's a 44-year old guy still doing on a BMX?
