"Figueroa said it is imperative that people in the Isla Vista community have easier access to fruits and vegetables at reasonable prices. " I am all for access to fresh produce and fighting obesity, but come on Rosalinda, the IV Food Coop is open 7 days a week and stocks all kinds of health foods at reasonable prices. And if you want a real supermarket or a farmers market, the Camino Real Marketplace is only about a mile away. Even if you don't have a car, how hard is it to walk a mile? It might actually help you lose those extra pounds. Stop treating the poor like they are helpless infants. They need to be taught to make better choices, but they don't need to be mollycoddled.

If you can afford the attorney, you probably can also afford to pay back the loan. Conversely, if you can't afford to repay the loan, you also won't be able to afford the attorney who would help you get out of debt. Sounds like catch 22 to me.

Maybe sensors that trigger flashing lights and a loud alarm blaring "step back from the cliff"? Of course, the neighbors would hate it, but it should work.

Well said Bill. Religion is being used to manipulate angry people and cause them to commit murder. Muslims do not hold exclusivity on this horror. Right now Islam is the religion that is being corrupted for political ends, but Christianity was once promoted at the point of the sword too. I like polytheism best, because it's like an open marriage, you can date any other god or goddess that looks good to you.

We need to make police brutality in this town an issue in the upcoming City Council elections. And I sure hope that Jerry Cox sues the SBPD.

That makes sense EastBeach. Until we get a ban, I think retailers should charge for the single use bags. They do in Europe, and it really helps folks remember to bring a reusable bag along.
Also, since the bags are number 2 plastic, why not allow people to put them in their recycling bins? Are they too much trouble for the recycling company to deal with?

Yes, 40% of the dogs in shelters are Chihuahuas, and the rest are overwhelmingly Pit Bull mixes. Is there a cultural issue at play here? Please people, neuter your dogs!! Neutered dogs make far better pets, they don't run away, they don't fight with other dogs, they don't hump your leg, and they don't mark their territory all over your furniture. Stop projecting your sexual identity onto your dog. Dogs are much happier just being friends with other dogs than being led astray by sexual instincts they cannot control. Of course, that could be said of a lot of humans, too.

I confess to not fully understanding the environmental point of the bag bans as they have been enacted so far. In Santa Monica for example, you can no longer get a plastic bag with handles (A.K.A. T-shirt bag) at the Farmers Market or at most stores, but you can get as many plastic bags without handles as you want. So what exactly is the point?? Why not instead demand that all single use bags be made of compostable plastic derived from plant sources, and charge 10 cents for each single use bag? This would encourage people to reuse, while making the bags more digestible.
