Sorry Slosh, but $900 bucks for a bed is actually market rate or cheaper for IV. When you're paying $1,000 to share a room on Del Playa, I'd take this any day of the week. At least it wouldn't smell like mold and weed (not yet anyway).

That headline had me confused. I thought the city council was going to table Chick-fil-A, not throw out the members of the ABR that screwed the pooch. Good on Rowse and Hotchkiss; if you can't make a design decision objectively, you don't belong on the ABR.

Of the known faults in and around Diablo Canyon, based on their seismic "speed limits" they hardly have the potential to generate an earthquake greater than what the station was built to withstand. I get the precautionary measures, but Diablo Canyon is by no means "unsafe".

This is unfortunately environmentalism at its best. What's ironic is that the testing demanded by those environmentalist also raise their ire with respect to marine animals. So you're damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

Perhaps we should build four more coal, oil, or natural gas plants to replace Diablo Canyon, thereby quadrupling the greenhouse gas emissions the plant doesn't produce?

Bottom line, if you're going to defend the Constitution, defend all of it. If you're pushing equal rights for all as guaranteed by the Constitution, remember that it comes along with freedom of religion and freedom of speech.

Meanwhile, the ABR has embarassed themselves and the spirit/purpose of the ABR, and should be ashamed. Politics have no place in their decisions, and those that abstained for "political reasons" should be forced to resign. Despicable.

Just enough information for it to be inflammatory, and not enough information to actually know the whole story. I'm going to lean heavily on the law of averages and say that if one person decided it was a good idea to run from the cops, chances are the rest of the back stories are proably about stupid people doing stupid things.

Yes, bravo to the artist. For encouraging anarchy through FUD. Bravo indeed.

Seriously Horseswagled? Get a hobby. The government is not responsible for us from birth until death. If you can't learn to take care of yourself between the times when the government is coddling you, you've got no place in society and perhaps the government didn't do you any favors.

A six year old knows better than to answer the door for a stranger, to look before crossing the street, and to NOT WALK ON RAILROAD TRACKS.

So we're going to name the airport terminal after a man who annexed ocean water to keep the airport within the City of Santa Barbaray, which resulted in the state legislature writing law to ban any and all annexations "under" bodies of water so that other examples of that kind of questionable shennanigans never happened again?

Sounds perfectly illegitimate to me.

Glad to see Capps is doing everything she can . . . but balancing the budget. Way to keep yourself elected.

@LegendaryYeti, people are booked into county jail for lesser offenses, including drunk in public. The "sobering center" is special treatment at its best.

About the only thing I read on the Daily Sound is the crime blotter. Otherwise, that frightening-looking "Kitty in the City" and various other Op-Ed writers scare me away.

Much as it is with radio, the author does not need to be seen. Otherwise, they'd be in broadcast journalism.
