Maybe the fan was high and imagined he was a player at a professional hockey or baseball game?

I don't believe any of the posts here denying or minimizing the ethnic violence in Burma/Myanmar.
Here's what the UN and BBC have to say:

@KV, I agree Fairview is the worst intersection in Goleta. That's why I wrote Storke is "one of" the worst (second worst in my opinion).
I think traffic will be getting worse @Storke soon. FLIR Systems purchased the old Delco mfg buildings next to Kmart and will be relocating staff who currently use the Fairview and Los Carneros intersections. When the Cabrillo Business Park completes its later phases. more companies will also be moving in. Also, there's that large housing development being built across from the north side of the Marketplace shopping center.
Many of the Cabrillo tenants will have workers who commute to/from Goleta every day. It's no wonder the fast food restaurants are eager to build new drive-thrus @Storke.
With the new McD's located near San Marcos High School, David Peterson's fast food empire continues to expand despite the Storke drive-thru denial.

I think that slope has already slid.
The Sonos building on Mason street just sold after being listed for $21.5 million. That same building sold for $9 million two years ago.

My take on the Marketplace drive-thru:
- New drive-thru's generate additional traffic (+ customers + profit).- The additional traffic would complicate what is one of the worst intersections in Goleta.- The traffic load will be increasing as more occupants inhabit the nearby Cabrillo Business Park.- Goleta City staff was willing to put up with the additional traffic load.- City Council was not.

"When you consider that a typical (Montecito) household will still be allowed to use 641 gallons a day for indoor use ..."
641 * 30 % 750 = 25.6 HCF per month
HCF's (Hundred Cubic Feet) are what shows up on our water bills.
That's a LOT of water for indoor use by one home. This makes me think the MWD isn't being serious about the drought.
That or there are an average of 8 live-in servants per Montecito home.

Readers should note the "allocation" numbers cited by Paudler reflect the new water rationing limits recently approved by MWD.
To compare Paudler's water use with your water bill, note there are ~750 gallons of water per HCF. So @3,000 gallons, his household is using 4 HCF's per month. Pretty darned good considering his situation.
And note he's using 30-times less water than his new ration limit!
Yet the water pigs in Montecito are crying:

^^^ On Rattlesnake? The one horse death I recall is Rocket, that was on Cold Springs ~2005.
Good to see discussion still going on. It seems like only yesterday when I was riding all over the front/back country with a copy of Ray's "Santa Barbara Mountain Bikes" in my Camelback.
I hike more than I bike now. But the last time I was on Romero (the "road", not the tree-shaded trail) had no problems with any bikers. They all had bells too. Not sure if the trail is problematic anymore, I like the views on the road better :)

As for Ebenstein, how could a staunch and outspoken Libertarian defender of personal responsibility, self-reliance (and selfishness) attempt the backside approach to Cathedral Peak with no water or food? Not to mention not carrying a spare set of glasses when he's highly dependent on them?
The fact Ebenstein's bacon was saved by the people & system he rails against is dripping with irony.

Kudos to Simon and Weitzman for their dedication and hard work. It must be satisfying looking back on the last 16 years to see what's been achieved.
It would be interesting for Ford to follow up with an update on how things have gone since the choppers from County Fire and the Sheriff's Dept. were merged. I recall it didn't start smoothly.
