HG - I hope your kid dies and some callous @hole tells you to get over your grief.

I always thought Lou Gehrig's Disease was known as ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)

Maybe SMA is is the new terminology. Either way, it's a disease with no cure. The average life expectancy once diagnosed is about 4 years. She has already survived 6 years. My hats off to the Strongs for their love and perseverance in keeping their child in good physical and mental health. Caring for an ALS sufferer is an awesome task.

Maybe Loon, but the government is elected by us to do so. We own that. These guys are just using violence or the threat of violence to extort money from honest citizens. The "benefit" they get from paying the extortion is to avoid further violence from the gang extorting money from them/

Are you for real Loon? Protection services? The only thing they needed protection from is the gang if they didn't pay up.

Gosh Kenn - Does mis-spelling someone's name make a person not credible?

Well, you certainly hold grudges a long time seven. I was around for the '69 spill and it was a stinking mess. I don appreciate your honesty. You hate the industry and you want it out of the county. Understood. At least that's more honest than the backers of measure P that state it won't affect current drilling operations. It does and it will. Measure P will given seven dolphins his wish and ban drilling from the county. But that will happen in slow motion as new permits need to be obtained to preserve existing operations. But of course the permits will be denied and drilling in the county will gradually come to an end.

How about we turn IV into a padded cell so people can walk around aimlessly in a drunken stupor without risk of hurting themselves. We should turn the police into "vomit patrols" who will hunt for piles of drunken vomit that people might slip on and clean it up as to avoid being a hazard to other drunks.

The funny thing is that the price of oil is dropping so fast, it may make Measure P irrelevant. If prices keep dropping, any drilling techniques that are not cost-effective, will be curtailed.

We're now below $3.50 a gallon here and the price is likely to drop further. Of course when prices are rising, many will say that it's all the fault of oil companies and speculators. Those whiners are now quiet because the price is going in the direction they want. Of course, at some point prices will rise again and the whiners will come out of the woodwork to complain about evil oil companies and speculators. Supply and demand dictate price, but there will always be some that see conspiracy when there is none. But we can thank tracking and other intensive extraction techniques for contributing to the current abundance of oil and the price drops that have gone with it. If you vote yes on P, drilling in the county will gradually disappear. If you vote no, nothing will change here.
