RHS, your suggestion to stop granting new building permits is eerily reminiscent of the water moratorium of the 1970s that sent rents and real estate prices into the stratosphere and forced many iof us out of the hiome we knew growing up. Can Santa Barbara really afford a repeat of past mistakes?

Why on earth should anyone here illegally be entitled to in-state tuition?

The murder of these innocent animals is horrifying. Yes, Ebola is a terrifying disease, but at least the virus kills without malice, unlike the "authorities":who executed innocent animals based on ignorance and hatred. I find them a bigger threat than Ebola.

While I feel for human tragedy, there is something especially awful about the unnecessary death of an innocent animal. The dog's guardian entruated her care to the animal shelter in the reasonable expectation that her safety would be ensured. That truat was betrayed.

If the system provided as many false positive warnings as the tornado warnings provided by the National Weather Service it would be worse than useless.

Billclausen, I think you missed the point. Sometimes women bring a different energy to a situation. We're more emotional, less strategic. And maybe sometimes even tough guys need a hug from grandma.

While I have an issue with any program that rewards or encourages illegal activity, my real problem was this article's suggestion that Julia, who grew up prior to the DREAM Act, was somehow cheated by going to SBCC rather than directly entering a four-year university. I couldn't afford UC tuition either and began my copllege education at SBCC. From there I transfered to UCSB, having earned a full scholarship and went on to do my graduate work (law and business) at a prestigious private university in the midwest. But at no time did I feel the quality of my SBCC education was anything less than the very best. So I find it hard to drum up much sympathy for someone here illegally who managed to get a first-rate education while living in paradise.
