Gluteus Minimus! ... nonsense. A gun in his pocket would not have helped him. Just read if you can: "... a 63-year-old man was walking to his car from the casino when he was attacked from behind. He was reportedly knocked unconscious ..."

I have observed the same thing several times and our niece from Paris, France — who is 25 years old and went to school here for three months — ran into the same problem at Ralph's downtown. It is so ridiculous and stupid — what better ID can you have than a passport, which brings you through all check points of homeland security and INS.
Santa Barbara's economy depends very much on tourism — and we drive the tourists away with stupidity and ignorance?These stories will go around in Europe and other countries...
Well, good luck then for the future.

Stupidity all over (aside from the viewpoint of crime): The kids stealing cars and driving around in the same neighborhood and the owners leaving cars unlocked, keys in. I know European countries where a car owner would be ticketed for leaving his car unlocked (which includes leaving the windows open when you leave) for provoking theft and also the insurance wouldn’t pay in such cases, because the car owner didn’t follow up with his part of doing everything possible and reasonable to avoid the theft. Which makes a lot of sense.

So true, still corporate greed trumps all. But if a real accident happens and the population here gets wiped out or hopefully escapes in time, nobody will be left to buy their electricity and pay their rates. The usual picture of greed and political shortsightedness. — And their own families? Who cares, money makes the world go ’round...

To local_sb: That is all nonsense, Social security does not cost taxpayer’s or government’s money, it is funded by what we put in there. It is not even flawed or in trouble — don't fall for GOP and Tea Party propaganda slogans. The system is not flawed or endangered, it is only that these guys want to borrow that money (and hardly ever give it back) or make some insurance companies happy, so their CEOs can add a few millions to their income. I call that stealing from us, who paid that money, you (?) and me.

Isn't there a city law (ordinance, decision....) about Santa Barbara being a nuclear free zone? How can this work together?

Do guns cause violence?
A gun locked up doesn't do anything until it is used (the same with drugs, and these are illegal, which is a good thing). It is always the people using them, carrying them around, proclaiming that they are only free if they can bear arms everywhere and anywhere.
A gun in the house of ordinary people doesn't protect. Guns are just tools to escalate violence, conflict injury and death — intended or not. 30,000 deaths by gunshots every year (that's what I've heard) from robberies, gang fights, neighbor disputes and domestic violence — yeah, why not make it a law that everyone has to own and carry one and we will be safe... what an oxymoron to think the more guns are out there the safer it gets.

When the contracts are so rich in money that they want to pay back with big donations, why don't they offer lower prices in the beginning? It only proves that we have been extremely overcharged, probably for the last 37 years.

$45,000 per prisoner per year? If we’d spend that amount on education or better paid jobs, many of them probably would not have ended up there, thus saving us the need for more prisons.Average educated, working people have a hard time making that much money, health care included... something is wrong here.
