How about parents warning their kids about the dangers of caves?

The appeal of More Mesa is that (for however long it lasts) one can get away from the Busybodies/Nanny State of Santa Barbara and chill out.

I wonder if the author doesn't have ulterior motives:

I can't resist this one Davy: Could it be that "Obama is a Muslim"? (Note: I'm making fun of those who can't make up their minds if he's a Muslim, or a flaming Leftie--two things which are mutually exclusive).

"their" is the correct spelling.

Loonpt: In my household my dad and I didn't bond over football, we bonded over music and race car driving. I remember the Lanier incident very well because my dad told me all about it. At one point, he and I both could recite the names of every Indy 500 winner from 1911 on, (excepting the war years when the race was put on hold) so I know quite a bit about racing, the culture involved, and various personalities.

Having said all this, I think I can safely say that if smoking pot made one a better race driver, I would have heard something about it by now, and for what it's worth, Lanier, like John Paul Jr. and John Paul Sr. dealt in the business end of it, but did not use it to enhance their driving since concentration is what is needed when driving.

So back to my question which you didn't answer: How come race car drivers don't use pot to enhance their driving?

On DUI Arrests Down From Last Year

What if the victim is male?

Rape is against the law, let the cops deal with it. When you are raped, call the cops. If you can't get justice in the legal system, then the effort to obtain justice must be aimed at the legal system.

This is like the problem of violence among NFL players: The issue should be "How should the NFL deal with this?" but rather "Why isn't this guy in prison?"

Enforce the laws on the books.

On Crime on Campus

The point about Siegel is valid, as is the point about our jury/legal system being broken down, but the underlying issue is that Santa Barbara is overcrowded, and an economic dystopia which creates gang culture.

Until PODER is able to address the underlying "Elephant in the living room", they will simply continue to feel frustrated and angry.

Loonpt: If cannabis makes you a better driver, why is their no record of race car drivers getting stoned before getting in their cars and running inches apart from other drivers at 200+ miles per hour?

Is our society willing to confront the fact the many kids listen to Gansta Rap--which celebrates degradation of women?

How many who complain about our foreign policy are going to vote the status quo?
