Cal Fire, Marine Corps, Navy Join Forces In San Diego County

"After five years they got assistance" ??? Give me a break. Either your reporter has a short memory or didn't know to look at the history.

Remember the 2003 Cedar Fire? Still the largest fire in the history of California? On the night it broke out, the military pilots asked over and over for permission to fly and fight the fire but oh, no, Cal Fire couldn't let that happen that night or for the duration. After all, military pilots aren't trained, according to Cal Fire, even though they put out fires all the time. So the fire that just might have been put out the first night while it was small grew because of a turf war. Fire victims screamed. The state said they would work something out. But Cal Fire drug its feet so badly that by the time the 2007 fire came, FOUR years later, it is as if the previous controversy never occured and once again, the military pilots offered to join the fight and once again, Cal Fire said no.

So to say they accepted "accepted assistance" too bad they didn't accept assistance on October 25, 2003. Maybe over 2500 homes would not have been destroyed and maybe 13 people would not have lost their lives due to a turf war.

San Diego's Airport Woes Have Long History

A neighbor had been part of one of the study committees. They looked at Brown Field, but they also looked at locations in East County including what is now Blossom Valley. Unfortunately, San Diegans are spoiled. We cannot conceive of a trip to the airport that is even half as far as other cities take for granted.

Putting ‘Canvass’ Claims To The Test

If I asked you a question and you came back with something I wasn't expecting, I would also repeat your question to make sure I heard it correctly. Most people just answer Yes or No or I am busy. You said something she wasn't expecting.

For you to make such a deal about it makes many of us wonder. What is your agenda?

She sounded very polite to me.

That is what you should have reported. You were not harrassed, as Target's lawsuit implied. No one prevented you from getting into the store or to your car. You went looking for a fight and didn't find one. Don't lie with implications. Just report the truth. The canvassing person was polite. End of story.
