Legendary...The opportunity for a teachable moment has been squandered? Are you serious? Since when does someone in the public eye have an obligation to make their crisis a lesson for others, immediately or ever?
Gosh, we've become so enamored with everyone airing all things private, we can't respect a family dealing with an intimate, possibly life-threatening time for one of its members without demanding real time tweets and Facebook updates, and a new bracelet, public awareness campaign and non-profit. Take a breath folks, it's been 24 hours!

On Orange You Going to Say Goodbye?

Oh man. I imagine this maybe happens a lot more than we think. Single mom can't afford child care, thinks it is safe in a quiet neighborhood where she can see the car from the house where she is working...doesn't think a 2-year old can get loose, and is supposed to be sleeping. Or, the baby was crying and she had to get it away from house?
Real sickening, no matter what the reasons.

On Young Child Severely Burned in Car Fire

It sounds pleasant and creative, but it's hard to imagine young punks who join gangs sitting around and feeling their way to being law-abiding. Do we really need another program in Santa Barbara? Seems like we are always getting programs for homeless and mentally ill people, and we have more than ever.
The use of the word "sententious" is funny. How many people even know what that is?The adjective name idea is a little too much like the gang names they already give each other.
Oh well, everyone is entitled to their idealistic thinking, as long as I have a choice on whether to pay for it.

On Alternative to Violence Program Gaining Traction in S.B.

Seriously, only a tiny fraction of smugglers caught so far are even prosecuted, and the two who were got less than a year?? Imagine what that was cut down to with overcrowding. And then are they escorted to the border, so they can find a boat and start right back up?

On SPECIAL REPORT: Details Revealed in Coast Guard Officer's Death

I hate to rock Lodge's world, or the other arts supporters' dreams, but all that matters right now is ascertaining which will is the legal one. A will expresses a decedent's last wishes. This is not about what Santa Barbara wants for the property, it's about what Miss Clark wanted.
It's extremely greedy, self-serving and premature to form a committee now. Let the process play out to see which will prevails, then jump in and make your wishes known to the trustee.

It would be nice to hear a bit about her dogs, since it is part of the story, and they were no doubt dear to her (and probably so freaked out). Hope they have someone to care for them, for her sake and theirs.

So, wait, there is a level of meth that is NOT considered enough to impair driving?!?

On Driver Killed in Crash with Maldonado's Wife Was on Meth

The victims and their families are first and foremost on my mind. No one comes along ten years later to "free" them from the loss of their child or their permanent injuries or emotional trauma. What sort of system lets the sick perpetrator enjoy the most trouble free aftermath of such a horrific event?
I am also offended at a relatively minor issue. What judge issues a decision so riddled with typos and grammatical errors? There are several items even spell check would have found.
A high school teacher would not have given this a passing grade, and yet it is the document that effectively sets the wheels in motion to free a killer. The whole process is appalling.

On Conditional Release for David Attias

THOUSANDS of clients? Please! I agree it's terrible this has happened to the employees, and they are entitled to their salaries and an apology, but everyone else will somehow survive the abrupt departure of their apricot scrub mask and cucumber lemon facial wrap outlet. It's not like there aren't a zillion other day spas in this town.
