Rumors that the Manson family hung out here in IV a bit... 1967 was chaotic. But they lived in SB.
Didn't `Your Muslim Bakery' start in SB too?

Sitiptip Terminal... that is the Barbareño name for the Goleta Slough.
Or, S'axpilil ... a bigger village than Syuxtun, was at Fairview and the 101.

Like the tortuous circumstances of Huttenback's decline, the thread that led to UCSB's involvement in the Higgs Boson discovery, surprisingly, is unrelated to the KITP and only a little to Huttenback. In fact for the KITP the Higgs Boson is ancient history, while the string theory the KITP embraces has so far been a dry hole at the LHC.
Nonetheless, Huttenback was much more responsible for the Nobels at UCSB than Yang.

Nope, AM, weapons research is not science, but technology development. Not to contradict you on the funding escalation, or, the priorities, but still, it isn't science, but engineering and technology development.

IV Drip in IV has handed out $2 billis (and $1, 50cent coins) for years. I think that is the largest source of $2 bills, not nudists.

I thought we all blamed Attias' behavior on the chaos of Isla Vista. If that is true, perhaps he should be released. If he is truly insane, I guess it isn't Isla Vista's fault.
Nick didn't even mention that the public defender argued for Attias.

I think you exaggerate a little, binky. The 1992 3rd District election was decided by a handful of votes. I never subscribed to the Pappas-Crawford-Hall concept of 1000 votes faked by 1000 individuals. Nevertheless, the idea that registerers recopy registration cards and re-sign, which I think might well have happened, is troubling.
However, the statistic, which I've never seen, is how many double votes occurred... that is, how frequently did someone seem to vote at a precinct, and then also have an absentee ballot submitted. If you know that number, I'd sure like to see it.

I largely agree with Eric Smith, except for one thing... the point was that paid registerers would substitute their own handwriting when they filed the cards, and then submitted votes that were ultimately recorded because the paid registerers' handwriting matched; if the real voter voted their vote would be thrown out because the handwriting didn't match.
Granted, Pappas never proved with names that idea. But it could be hard to prove.

A good thing about Steve Pappas: he got more votes in IV in 2008 than any other non-enviro-machine candidate in years, because he worked hard but wasn't very savvy.
Maybe you have to go back to the 1980's to find another vote-getter in IV who was not Bill Wallace, Gail Marshall, John Buttny, or Doreen Farr, and those vote-getters were local IV candidates.
Pappas' post-election behavior is bewildering, though
