The link above is very interesting for readers who want to read about the effects of fracking. You can also google the October 2013 report direct: "Fracking by the Numbers": 280 Billion gallons of toxic waste water generated in 2012; 450,000 Billion tons of air pollution produced in one year; 250 Billion gallons of fresh water used since 2005. I've also read elsewhere that it takes one million gallons of water per year PER WELL to frack - a resource we can't afford in our county. Readers might also want to google earthquakes and fracking - something we do not want to chance in our area.

I found this film to be much better than the reviewer did; and better than the preview indicated it would be. Fiennes' direction was original and Jones' acting was breathtaking.

I agree with the writer's three main points. There SHOULD be snacks - and especially water available. Also an ATM. They have portable ones - I've seen them at temporary festivals. Advertising also makes sense. Tack it on to whatever other tourism ads the city subsidizes. I might even walk along there more often if I knew I could buy a churro (or something) midway.

Scoop 9324 - a work year at the government agency I worked for (not city or county) was 2080 hours. Don't know how many hours of sick leave this person got a year - but 20 years without using SL at 104 hours of sick leave given a year (what we got) is 2080 hours. I knew MANY people, including myself, who retired after 30 years with over 2080 hours of Sick Leave. However, our agency did not give you cash, only counted it as time worked. So their retirement would be paid as if they worked 31 years instead of 30.

I live in the area. One of the biggest problems is that people going up Mission Cyn. towards Foothill tailgate and go way too fast. Slow DOWN.

Wow - some angry people out there today.....I've got mine....forget about getting yours. Are you ready to go pick strawberries for ten hours a day, six days a wekk? And yes, it sounds like the laws ARE being enforced - with 400,000 deportations per year! My friend lives near San Diego and has light blonde hair. She used to ride the bus to work and the border patrol would come on and randomly pick brown skinned people to check for "illegal aliens". She would stand up and say "Why aren't you picking me - I could be here illegally from Holland!". She is my hero.
