The "affordable" studios over look the Salvation Army parking lot and daily soup lines. Somebody has to live on that side of the building. But 450 sq feet for $167,000 is as good as you are going to get. Go for it, and stop complaining you can't afford to live in Santa Barbara because this puts you in a prime location and a heck of a good place to call home.

All Bush and Cheney needed was the approval of the majority of Democrats in the Congress, and they got it. Don't try an rewrite history for your own personal agenda, DD.

Good grief! How much more gangsta chic is this college town going to tolerate.

See something, say something.
Or was it too un-PC to call someone a disturbed nut case.

Random, you might want to look into the effectiveness of the current DARE program for young people and behavior modification efforts. Why is automatically this a role for more government workers to solve?
On Isla Vista Memorial Shouts “Not One More”

Since DD and Validated do not read widely, let me pass on another Sacramento pundit who also shares the conclusion public sector employee unions and their now exposed string of excesses will be in for a rough ride:
Dan Walters take on union politics, CalTrans and the 3500 jobs feather-bedding. It is happening all over this state and up and down the state budget and in every aspect of government employment.
On Does the county need Measure M?

BTW: Excellent letter from the mayor of Solvang who supports Measure M, stating the "sky will not fall" if Measure M passes - he makes very valid points as he defangs the opposition, point by point:
If you have not made up your mind about Measure M yet, be sure to read his letter in support of Measure M.

Just mailed in my ballot, DD. Yes on M - it was so easy to do, and the proposition reads like a no-brainer to support.

As they say, Evil is Live backwards.
It does lurk any time human beings or any other biological group comes together. Many glorify it in movies, fantasies and video games and all are satisfied when it is vanquished. Even if momentarily. It exists in every human archetype ever devised within every culture.
Much of great literature and drama acts out the tension that always exists between the forces of Good and forces of Evil.
If anything we are closer to Nirvanah in Western Society than any prior culture in the history of mankind. Which is an odd combination of words in the first place because man is often not kind.
Even our constitution was written with checks and balances because our Founders also knew evil can and will lurk within any institution of Man.
Is not the deeper issue the randomness of life and death, because more deaths occur in Stockton on a routine basis than the occasional acts of horror in IV.
Cause, not means. And time to also explore the cause of our own sense of shock and bewilderment is also in order. As if this helps, which of course it does not. But just saying, as they say.

Oooowww, seeds of a witch hunt. Is that what you have in mind, Validated. Trying to inside e-mob violence with rumor and innuendo?
Stick with the ideas and the principles and you will do okay.
