You are mistaken and wrong, John Adams. You are misinformed and misleading others.
Since August 2011 at the business owners' discretion, dogs are allowed on outdoor patios.
New restaurant inspection criteria were put into place to guide restaurant owners and inspectors. The new policy governing animals in outdoor dining areas can be viewed at www.sbcphd.org/ehs.

You've completely missed the point, Botany and your logic is faulty.
Even though service dogs are specially trained they are dogs and sometimes they misbehave. That's my point.
The author of this letter finds any animal near her while she's in a coffee shop to be "uncouth," no matter if it's well behaved or not. She objects to the presence of the animal.
My point is that she is in the wrong and needs to modify her behavior if a dog is lawfully accompanying an owner in an eating establishment.
Have I explained that clearly enough for you Botany? No one is "trying to excuse" the bad behavior of a dog because it happens to be a service animal. A service dog's handler is the steward for the dog and responsible for its behavior.

1) If the establishment allows dogs on the patio and is not breaking Health Code then the person with the dog is within his rights to be there. If you don't like it, move or leave.
2) If animals are prohibited except for Service Animals and there's a service animal present, you're out of luck again. The disabled person has the right to have her specially trained service dog with her at all times, anywhere the public has access, including inside coffee shops and restaurants.
3) If it's posted "No dogs allowed expect for service animals" and someone has a pet dog there anyway, then ask the management to enforce the posted policy.
I'd hope that people with dogs are always good stewards of their animal and keep them well behaved, but that's not always so. They're animals.
Bottom line, if you don't want to eat or drink near someone's dog...a dog that is as entitled to be there as you are...then move or leave. Really. It's not the dog owner's responsibility to accommodate you if they are there lawfully.

He's disruptive and a distraction to city business. He needs to go.

He's still got a pretty quick wit that can be humorous no matter what you political leaning (bias). Not saying he's always on target but sometimes his spontaneous quips are hilarious and inspired!

jw, you talk alot but don't say anything worthwhile.
I really have no idea of what concept you are trying to express since you are doing a piss poor job of it. Triangles and basket balls? That's not how cannabinoid receptors work in the human body.
Ignorance and blow hardedness is all I read coming from you so I'm not going to waste my time with you verifying my credentials, experience and background. You are ignorant on the topic and the more you yak, the more it shows.

@jwI have a background in medicine, scientific thought, biochemistry, nutrition, organic chemistry. I have followed the literature on cannabinoid research for years.
I have no idea what you are trying to say on this topic. The terms you are using don't resemble anything used in actual, credible scientific communications. You are not expressing your concepts well if you do indeed know what you are trying to say here. You are completely ignorant on the topic of medical cannabis.

All rstein did (when the comment was still available) was to ask what many of us are thinking....why were these two going out in the dark at 2 am?
Bad judgement. And now they're dead.
Of course it's sad to lose two young men in such an accident.
Why is it okay for judgmental statements to be made by Murdoch as to praying for someone's "selfish and pitiful soul" simply because the poster wondered aloud why these men were out in the dark and not waiting for a safer time for a ride.
Sheesh. Pray for the dead men, not for a poster who simply asked a question....

Everyone has access to healthcare just as everyone has access to an attorney, an accountant or a hair dresser or nail technician.
Pay for those services.
How did medical care get carved out as something that people expect to get for free all the time?

Healthcare is NOT a "basic human right," Marshall.
No one has the right to goods and services that have to be provided by others. Everyone wants the best healthcare and services that other peoples' money can buy.
Sure there are those truly in need and the safety net helps them.
But there are those medi cal folks here in our own town who drive Cadillac Escalades and have the latest smart phones. They can pay their share of healthcare costs. Don't cry "woe is me, we're so poor." I call bull crap.
