No one knows exactly when the earth was struck by a comet and that moon is indeed a piece of this planet? If this was a conspiracy then my dad was in on it. He helped build the guidance systems for Saturn and Apollo missions. The Van Allen belt problem for the Apollo navigators was solved by plotting a course through the thinnest parts of the belts and arranged for the spacecraft to pass through them quickly, limiting the exposure.
The fact that moon rocks were lost then recovered and then tested later shows a con here. Where are the real moon rocks?

I agree with curius1. I think that a furnace with a huge bag house and a smoke stack would look ugly to them. For get about function.
We are a throw away society. I think we need to adress that.
Landfills can be a treasure.

I never said it is out of scale. We, as a county, have half the population of Montana; one of the poorest states in the country. "The indigent in this town get EXCEPTIONAL care" they do; as everyone should. My first sentence was about the patient. As far as having a problem with "The indigent " we do in the city. They are a drain on more than the hospital. The police, fire deparment and AMR all have to respond many times a week, even a day, to an alcohol or drug related over doses. Pointing that out is accurate, not wrong or badly intended. I don't go to Cottage. The ER is very busy and our good doctors have been there for more than a decade.

I would agree with Jarvis. If you look at the forensic weather for Santa Barbara County and review the rain records you will see that the El Nino and La Nina waters have a direct effect on the fisheries in combination with fishing. Many of these Bass species thrive in kelp forests. Both of these currents affect the kelp forest differently; therefore there is a direct effect on the carrying capacity of our fishery that we cannot control.

I would believe that the problem begins in the home not in the hearts of administrators. Insecure parents create insecure children. These insecure children create children of entitlement, that generation elects insecure politicians who promise them the entitlements. This entitlements cause dependence on government to fix things. Therefore, creating a larger government, and then enslaving the people to it, leading people away from freedom; to socialism and tyranny in the end. This is not about race it is about socioeconomics, anthropology of street gangs and the dilapidated dangerous neighborhoods in which a school system is supposed to find a way to matriculate qualified high school students.
I am sure you have read THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE. It was a social commentary in 1955. This has been made into a movie several times and variations of it. The sitcom WELCOME BACK CARTER was theme based on the same social issues.
This is not about race it is about socioeconomics, anthropology of street gangs and the dilapidated dangerous neighborhoods in which a school system is supposed to find a way to matriculate qualified high school students. Who wants to teach kids whose parents no not hold them responsible, they hold you responsible for their kid?

How unfair to forget the patients that are in the hospital and the quality of their environment in healing or dying. As far as a medical facility goes it is indeed supreme and it may cost a lot to go there if you have poor insurance or none at all. You can move to Los Angeles or Fresno or any city that has more that 3 million residents and you will get competitive health care. This county has less than 500, 000 residents; the entire county. Be grateful that some hospital wants to be here and service the enormous transient population that gets transported by ambulance to the emergency room and who has to get medically cleared before they are booked into jail. The hospital does not get paid for that.
This is America everyone gets treated in Santa Barbara when they are sick. No insurance required . . . and if you are critically injured the policy is fix you first and ask questions about payment later.
So I would say, look at the bigger picture. We are a small town with great weather. We have international tourists and illegal tourists; we have interstate travelers that have no permanent residence.
Make the drive to Los Angeles if you can save so much money at Kaiser; USC doctor mill.

Now you know I like a good beer . . .
Yuengling was established in 1829 on they are the beer of their local distribution area and the beer is outstanding. The price of their beer can’t beer beat either; I wish 805 gave its loyal customers the same competitive prices as this fine American brewery. America’s oldest brewery could have raised its prices on the pure novelty of the product. Widmer Brothers in Oregon are making better beers at a better price than Firestone; sorry.

Bill,Pseudonym or not I think that you can smell a dairy farm a mile away.
Once again this discourse seems to have become aimless. However it has come full circle, that someone needs to be labeled, is maybe indeed Ken’s point. Whether it is by color or name there has to be an attachment to a prejudice.
I wish to remain anonymous in good deeds of charitable giving whenever possible as well. There is no shame in that.
The crack pots can give their opinions, we don’t have to accept them if we choose not to.
Free speech is good and I say amen to that!
The best thing of all is that here, we are not in a room interrupting each other, everyone gets a turn.

Why does it matter if “some blogger” wishes to remain anonymous? This is not about status or deference to rank in seeking approbation from others.
Posted on January 20 at 3:17 p.m.
A blog is not a publication. It is a public format for an exchange of opinions. Journals, Articles, Studies, and in some cases Master Thesis and PhD Doctoral papers are published for purchase. There are very few professional writers that do writing for free.
This format is engaging. Being anonymous allows the reader to check the veracity of the factual information on their own. Anyone that would follow the course of a professor without sifting out opinion from fact is a neophyte; or a regurgitation machine.
You can look up the information on the slant on incarcerated people in municipal jails, state prisons and federal penitentiaries. When it comes to juvenile criminal statistics it is much more difficult to measure because of their right to privacy and the willingness of the criminal justice system to try rehabilitation in a system that does not collect the offenses. Closed season juvenile court where other young adults, high school teens, are the jury. The offenses are expunged after community service or a fine for restitution.
