The City got off easy. Tudor is a brute and should be fired before he kills someone.

We don't have enough water to take long showers, and these guys want to use our aquifer for hydraulic fracturing? Oh, and then there is the small matter of increased earthquake activity. I like cheap energy as much as anyone else, but this is insane.

Something about this doesn't pass the smell test. What is the Navy hiding?

Let's mandate gray water systems and rain catching cisterns for all new construction and major remodels. Even if we get rain this winter, much of California is arid, and we need to accept that.

Go to the harbor on Saturday mornings, buy directly from the fishermen, get the freshest fish and shellfish, whole, and you won't need any government bureaucrats inspecting your plate.

Andrewbaker they don't grow rice in the San Joaquin Valley. They grow rice in the flood plain of the Sacramento River Delta. They grow cotton, almonds, pistachios, citrus, stone fruit, grapes, and some vegetables in San Joaquin Valley.

On City Customers Not Saving Water During Drought

How about mandating that all new construction and major remodels in California include a cistern to collect rainwater runoff from the roof, a grey water system, and solar panels? After all, if the State can impose indoor sprinkler systems of dubious usefulness for all new structures, why not mandate something that would actually help?
Time to stop hand-wringing and come up with solutions.

On Building Manager, Cops Shut Down Mural Event

"Expecting" decent behavior is not going to solve the problem. Telling them why you expect it, asking them why they are showing such disrespect for themselves and our community, treating them like people with the attendant rights and responsibilities would be more helpful.
We the citizens, not the cops or local officials are going to have to solve this. As for socialism, that has been tried and failed, but letting unfettered market forces turn our kids into indentured servants is clearly not working either. Let's set the labels aside and try to come up with common goals, shall we?
