I read the article with a growing amount of distaste at what appeared to be a paid endorsement. But, you know, one of the things I've always liked about the Indy is its enthusiasm for local happenings.
I've got plenty of reservations about the plan, but the guy isn't asking much. He wants to try something new with his and his investors' dollars. He needs a few (apparently legal) zoning concessions in an area most people didn't know existed five years ago. Do we all want to continue crying about the days when SB was _________, or should we hope that someone comes along with ideas that allow us to keep some of the SB we love in the face of ever increasing property and rents?

Why does this have to be any more than a tragic accident? Because the driver happened to be high profile and young? We, as a society, have set an age that is appropriate to bring new drivers into the ranks, and he was of that age and presumably licensed. Even if he was breaking the very recent and minor law of carrying passengers without a 25 year old present, that is minor and no reason to assign blame. With the information I've been given I can't imagine blaming anyone for this sad event that the young man will carry with him the rest of his life.

@Billclausen - there is nothing "de rigeur" about this type of violence anywhere.

Another example of pigs violating the law and doing whatever they please to wipe their a$$ with your tax dollars. Since 2008 the entire dept has systematically broken the law and blown your loot, and the defense is "but it's more convenient." This cop worshiping culture makes me puke.

C'mon Ken--it's IV. My family's cars were routinely walked over by drunk students on an avg Friday in 1995, and stabbings have been a sad reality all over Santa Barbara, including at the iconic dolphin statue. If you want to talk about the ongoing social ills of IV, cool, but those have no direct correlation to this event.

To those bitching about cost to the county: Don't act like students don't provide a significant tax base for the county.
To those bitching about the havoc: Don't act like you've been to I.V., like, EVER. It doesn't affect you.
To those bitching about out-of-towners: You clearly don't understand the nature of I.V.
To those bitching about property damage: Have you seen the rents and deposits that these students pay??
To those bitching about disrespect for authority: Authority earns their own disrespect.
I grew up in Isla Vista. Lived there through all the Halloweens and the wet blankets authorities have tried to throw over the whatever the current annual I.V. party happens to be. Next time, cast your dragnet around the town and catch the DUI's spilling out, but leave the rest alone and, amazingly, the citation statistics will drop, alcohol poisoning cases will remain unchanged, and once in a while some idiot will fall off the bluffs. It happens. Get over it.

So terribly sad for a young man to go that way and at such a young age. The young lady must have been terrified and in unbearable pain or shock. Anyone who knows the trail has to be befuddled by the story, but unless it's alcohol they won't find anything in the tox report. Most psychedelics don't show up.
