I wrote a letter in December 2014, about your “Surviving Santa Barbara” article in November, which was about the struggles it takes in live in Santa Barbara and why it is worth it to live in paradise. Some people wrote back that it was too expensive to live in “Paradise,” it took more than scenery and nice weather to be paradise, stores were crowded, decent and affordable housing was needed, and it was only paradise for those with lots of money.

Well, I have been here approximately two years now and still cannot find the paradise often referred to.
