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.

Kudos to CVS, which just got my business. My parents, too, were heavy smokers and utimately succumbed to smoking-related diseases. What a terrible waste of a wonderful generation due to Big Tobacco's greed. I'm so grateful that my children are growing up in a generation where smoking is definitely uncool. Maybe there's hope for the future.

THis is personal opinion but I've always thought golf courses to be one of the biggest wastes of water. I let my lawn and garden suffer so that sprinklers can run nonstop keeping golf courses green? Just an opinion, folks.

No televised special can compare with the magic of Christmas in Santa Barbara during the 60s and 79s. It's that reality I'm nostalgic for as I sit snowed in where I somehow managed to wind up "living". I wish you all the Merriest of Cristmases and a magical and happy New Year!

As an ex-pat Santa Barbaran living in Illinois, I can only say that the "fun" of winter sports is highly overrated.
