The seats are terrifically comfortable - and there is plenty of room between the rows for crossing legs, for long-legged folks, etc.
The Ensemble is having a number of tours for folks to see the New Vic and the insides of the theater - call them and come visit!
Remember the single bathrooms in the Alhecama? No more!!
And the same design firm that did the New ViIc also did the redone Hahn Hall - an excellent facility! And the New Vic cost so much less than the Granada!
Kudos to Johnathan Fox. Derek Westen, and all the many people who helped bring the New Vic to a reality for the next generation of theater goers!

How could you possibly print this with a straight face and not include Toma? Toma is the best new restaurant to arrive on the Santa Barbara scene in years!

Hmm - you must be seeing the wrong doctors. My wife and I have seen three new doctors this year, and all have accepted our Medicare without question. Note that if you decide to drop Part B, you will not be able to re-enroll until the next general enrollment period, and you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty to boot.

There were more than a few of us who walked out of this film because it was totally unintelligible. With such a heavy dialect, why were there no subtitles? Even "Downton Abbey" CD's have subtitles!

I recommend this speaker. His message is vitally important and is independent of religious bias. Hope to see you there!

Having been in the new section for two days in the last few weeks, I can tell you that it is nicely done, and a major improvement from the patients' point of view. But the nurses do complain - rightly or otherwise. They complain that it takes a long time to get certain equipment, as they are stored a long way from the patient wings. They complain that they were not consulted in the architectural layout (what should be close to what). Perhaps they just like to complain - perhaps we just got some chronic complainers, or perhaps their complaints have some substance. But the care you get is still excellent, IMHO.

Why have a recall? Isn't that what regular elections are for?
When one compares Serban to McDougall, there is no comparison.

Regarding Obama's grades. Doesn't "magna cum laude" from Harvard Law School mean anything?

OK, kids - time for some facts.
Regarding Obama's promises: Politifact, the Pulitzer-Prize winning fact checking web site, has been keeping track of more than 500 promises of Obama's. As shown here http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-met... the current total is 134 promises kept; 218 "in the works"; 40 "compromise"; 42 "broken" and 70 "stalled".
I'd consider that a pretty good record, in view of the continual harassment at every turn, and the fact that the president can only "propose" and the COngress "disposes."
Regarding the birth certificate brouhaha, I would emphasize "ha-ha." It seems that the White House has pulled off a classic "rope-a-dope" making Palin, Trump, et al look like village idiots.
