Not "republished," but brought to the forefront because this site lists and highlights, by putting on the comment list, recent posts.
Ask Oliver Wood. Maybe someone who knows what's up with Mr. Robert's case will enlighten us. I too wondered, as I greet and honor Mr. Roberts from a distance, just another supporter.
On Shameless News-Press Breaks Out the Kiddie Porn
Posted on July 9 at 6:32 a.m.
DrDan, I do support public schools & school bonds. I get to take longer showers because I haven't added much to the burden on resources (only slightly kidding). Just in a black mood, but I knew as a pre-teen that I never wanted kids, and my mind never changed. Never found myself agreeing with you as much as I did this night/morning.
On Republicans Should Move to Center

Dewdly, you might want to read up on golden age Greece.

Shocked at Ebenstein's editorial, in a good way. But of course the Republican party was hijacked by the Tea Party and others who seek to control individuals, as do most if not all politicians, and now they're looking to gain supporters. I agree that politicians are power-hungry, money-wasting money grubbers, but will still vote Democrat nationally for the sake of a more liberal Supreme Court. No politician gives a damn about income inequality or their struggling constituents. Americans, even those in dying cities, and those dying in wars, don't care or disagree enough to protest. OTOH, protest makes no difference in the European countries where it is done, so why bother? I'm a total pessimist. I'll be relieved to be gone and not have left spawn behind.

Reading is so educational. I didn't realize I dreamed about search engines and links as a child, while I read the encyclopedia."Manif pour tous" The Protest for Everyone" How dare they speak for people! Can you imagine the Tea Party using this label?!

Loon Point: (I hope I'm not making a fool of myself by answering your question. I always assumed the poster's name referred to our local Loon Pt. We never had loons here though, did we? I've only heard them in British Columbia. Yeah, the Independent comments can play hard, AKA be nasty.)http://www.independent.com/news/2007/...Loon Point between Summerland and Carpinteria at the mouth of Toro Canyon Creek.
On Everyone Angry at Proposed Winery Rules

cartoonz, are you defending or criticizing groundwater pumping for wine grapes? I think criticizing... Not that I'm getting involved in water wars. (But I do believe local government should've put strict controls in place at least a year ago. Have had a rock "lawn" for about 20 years).

Left out the important part. Yes, something(s) specific happened in his life. I don't believe it was the gov't. Search his name, read some articles, or use the links already supplied. Sheesh, you must be good at googling.
On Montecito Man Arrested After Threatening to Blow Up Home
Posted on July 9 at 4:09 a.m.
Did anyone bother to read the article Ken posted?! I found it on my own that morning; I was curious. (Funny how anyone can do better research than any news source does for us.)He went crazy, was high, or lost it due to drug use, past or current. Or maybe he just got really, really mad. His threats are unacceptable, he should've taken himself out, but HE called 911, according to media reports. So he didn't mean it, and he didn't threaten suicide but an explosion. Crying out for attention, poor $&*. Hope he and we are kept safe. I pity the man, mostly, while I certainly don't want him living next to me. He caused havoc; hope he can in some way repay a little, literally and figuratively.
