What financial benefit do the ships bring? The passengers have already paid for their food on the ship. They aren't staying in a hotel. They don't need to come to Santa Barbara to shop at Banana Republic, Forever 21, or Macy's. What do they spend money on?

I wish you required a login associated with an identity, like Facebook, Twitter, or Disqus. Once Gawker did that, comments there improved dramatically.

My in-laws in LA have chickens and ended up with some kind of mite attacking chickens and people alike. It was like a lice outbreak, where they had to clean everything in their house. Still, I'd try it if my better half would let me.

Did you really need to post their photos? What's the point of that? To shame them? It's like the Indy is making itself part of the criminal-justice system by punishing them.

I love that this kind of article and dialogue appears in the Santa Barbara Independent--or at least on the website.

"Joshua Lynn, the attorney for Adam and Joshua Webb, the attorney for Chet declined to comment following the arraignment."

I had to read that three times before I understood that Joshua Lynn isn't "the attorney for Adam and Joshua Webb."

With only one green item (broccoli) in the description, how, exactely, is this "healthy food"? Pastas and crêpes oozing with Nutella are the kind of carb-based dishes apt to put kids to sleep after lunch.

While I've heard many negative stories about pet insurance, and don't have insurance for my three pets, I do have one friend whose one-year-old dog required two surgeries costing about $2,000 each, and which were covered by insurance except for the $150 deductible. Since these surgeries happened when the dog was so young, the amount paid so far in premiums was far less than the cost of the surgeries. Presumably over the lifetime of the dog, the owner will pay in premiums more than the cost of the surgeries, but she was happy not to have to shell it out all at once. Since knowing of that experience, I've become open to the idea of insuring a new pet.

I wish there were a way to get a left turn lane without eliminating other lanes. But the left turn lane seems essential.

On Should Cliff Drive be reduced from 4 lanes to 3?
