"And Chancellor Henry T. Yang just increased the student body by 5000 for next year. Talk about throwing gas on the fire. The increased violence and need for County law enforcement rests with his overcrowding policy."

Nothing to add to this other than the fact that I agree with Georgy and it's nice to see logical posts where there is so much lack of common sense.

"Having the largest IQ in the room comes with its attendant burdens, don't you know . . . . that and the sharpest stick...."

...and, being the most humble. Don't get too haughty Drax, because even though you might have the largest IQ in the room, remember that some of the people you deal with have their IQ's set at room temperature.

What harm will come to us by having normalized relations with Cuba? Perhaps one of you can enlighten me, but it seems better to able to coexist with our neighbors.

RHS makes some excellent points but I would add--and this is not contradictory to his/her points--that extreme government regulation doesn't help. The simple act of jumping through government-imposed hoops in California drives businesses out of the state, while those businesses who are able to pay enough protection money to exist have to charge us more money in order to show any profit. (Thus, things cost more here)
By the way Jarvis, maybe you can find something for me to do for you for $20 per hour. That way, $3 per hour is being saved by eliminating the government Middle Man. Even if it's just hanging out with you and watching ESPN, I will be glad to keep you company, and maybe ETR and RHS can join me and that way you can stimulate the economy and we can all bond together.
Does this sound like a plan?

@Sevendolphins: Who is "Jake"?
As for the issue at hand, Solvang, once a laid-back place, has turned into a crowded, congested place under Richardson's watch. I'm not saying he caused it, but for day-to-day living, the place is much more like L.A. now that like the rural getaway it once was, not to mention his caving in to the wine bar culture with his comment "who among us is wise enough to craft an ordinance" (against the bars)
I'm not sure what Schneider's motives are, but either way, widening the freeway is only putting a Band-Aid on the fact that Santa Barbara has overbooked itself in terms of carrying capacity (much like Solvang) and perhaps Schneider sees the futility of it all, and if that's the case, more power to her.
KCET is running a show called "Borgen", and in this week's episode, the main protagonist, who is the former prime minister, resigns from her party and forms a new one. So perhaps for Schneider this is a case of one door closing and new one opening.
