First, love the "not in my backyard" insensitivity. "Lets put it in Goleta so it wakes THEM up and not us!" The Hospital has been there for 124 years. Shouldn't you have considered a Helipad before you move into the neighborhood? There is one, and only one, thing to consider here: The Air-lifting saves lives. PERIOD Shame on anyone that complains about it. It saves lives! How anyone can be that Selfish is simply beyond me. The Helicopters should be able to land on your roof tops and perform the surgeries in your Living Room and your only response should be to thank God that a life was just saved. People think all sorts of things will be the end of Earth and the Human Race. Terrorism, Greed, Gay Marriage, etc. But what is going to do it is SELFISHNESS, plain and simple. IT SAVES LIVES!

If he is now deemed "Sane enough" then he should be moved to a Prison Facility to serve out the rest of his days, NOT be released. If a "Sane" person murdered four people and severely injured a fifth there is no way they would be released after only serving 11 years. If Attias is sane enough he should have to serve the remainder of what a sane person would have been sentenced to in Prison.

How dare people people complain about noise when people's lives are being saved. I get so angry with the "not in my backyard" crowd I could vomit. Selfish people are what's ruining this country. Put in some earplugs and lets move on to more important things !!

There is no controversy here. People's lives are being saved with the Helipad, which trumps any complaints about noise. How selfish is it to complain about a little noise when this is the case ?? I cant understand why people dont get how great this World could be if they only cared about other people more than themselves. And before the inevitable "You dont have to deal with it" comments start, I lived in Isla Vista for 6 years so I know a little about nightly noise.

It makes me laugh to hear Montecitoans get so upset about this issue over the years (@ Don McDermott). It's the classic "Not in my Backyard" cop-out. I dont recall a lot of argument from them when the 101 was widened from Milpas to Fairview, "stealing" property rights from the lower income families living next to the Freeway along there. You are not special because you are rich and get to live in a beautiful setting. And you are not going to get any sympathy from the 99% !!

I heard somewhere that Dave Mason will be performing on Sunday as part of the Moving Wall festivities. Is this true ??

Here's a way to help the Budget problems. If more than ten people see you do something and you are seen firing a weapon at Police Officers you aren't even eligible for a costly trial. Straight to jail (do not pass 'Go') !!!
