Your three reporters who oppose the Indy endorsement of NO on P need to consider where they are getting their information. They mention "where is our Manhattan project?". As a scientist who was mentored by scientists from the Manhattan project I urge you to solicit the opinions from our UC Nobel laureates who surely have concern for these issues and are well informed. Why do I continually read "expert" opinions from those with superficial scientific information and no real scientific judgement? Call on the Nobel experts!

I think this may be the same women who without valid scientific evidence told us vaccines cause autism. Now we have a whooping cough epidemic in Goleta. Science and medicine must be taken seriously!

We all need to be thankful that Nick and the Indy editorial committee do in depth studies of issues like prop. P. I am an engineer/scientist and have followed fracking issues and can assure you we should have no fears -- except possibly from local politicians like Capps and Williams who apparently rely on superficial opinions on these issues. Fearful housewives in pinafores are trying to set county policy without any serious study! Where would we be without the Indy???

The salt air environment at the Clark estate will destroy art works or rare books in short order, especially when direction is from a board of deep pocket airheads with no real culture! Bad taste will prevail. And another doll collection to add to our Schott and Trenwith bequests!

This is great in depth reporting with respect for REAL science and not based on the "sky is falling" silly experts! Perhaps we need a genuine scientific evaluation of Diablo Canyon; I expect it is safer than most everyday risks we take. There are people out there who think the iodine in iodized salt is a major threat to life on Earth! Don't forget it was our city council that refused state mandated fluoridation of SB water in a lunatic fringe rant session years ago!

Sunday SBNP: no mention of Biden! Do we have any reporters??

Now he's been here and gone and we still don't know with whom he met or where or where he stayed! A tourist photographed him having breakfast at the Biltmore; someone reported he was at El Encanto. Where were all our journalists the past 24 hours - and who cares what he was doing 10 years ago?

This woman is not a science writer, she is a sensational journalist without ANY science training! I brought a 100 million$ scientific instrument to SB. What have you accomplished? Get serious about science! Silly people screaming about science are a disaster! Science deserves respect, ask someone with a serious scientific background! Ask any of our UC Nobel laureates! Or do you know what that means???

I am offended at being smeared by know-nothings who follow a sensational journalist who also has no scientific education and is proud of it!

She says she has NO SCIENCE BACKGROUND and that makes her perfect for interpreting science/technology to the common man. Like asking the buss boy to explain a gourmet dinner - or having Geo Bush2 in Washington. Science is serious business with rules and discipline. Science won WWII. Capricious interpretations by unqualified people can bring disaster. This woman is PROUD that she has no science training. She should learn to sew!
