David Alvarez Supporters Analyze Loss In San Diego Mayoral Runoff Election

Feeling the need to "approve" of an ethnic minority is just as misguided as disapproving of one. JM, I urge you not to go to Korea Town in LA. You won't like what you see and hear. They couldn't possibly care less about assimilating into American culture. Then again, not assimilating into American culture is now part of our culture. Strange, huh?

Ken Cinema Closing As A Landmark Theatre

Based on the quotes in the article, the theatre isn't being demolished. Someone with a better business model could save it. Mark Cuban's interest in theatres waned when HDNet and Magnolia Pictures failed to live up to his expectations. No surprise that one of his companies is negotiating roughly. He knows a teeny bit about business and didn't become a billionaire by cutting checks indiscriminately.

David Alvarez Supporters Analyze Loss In San Diego Mayoral Runoff Election

A post-election meeting to determine why a particular candidate lost is standard procedure. It's a stretch to call his supporters sore losers. Does anyone remember the RNC's meeting after Mitt Romney's defeat? Ironically enough for David Alvarez, the main topic at the RNC's meeting was how to broaden their appeal with Latino voters. The RNC had every right to have that meeting and discuss whatever they wanted. Alvarez' supporters have the same right, too.

Gasoline Prices Continue To Rise In San Diego County

It's weird that progressives and conservatives agree on this and don't view this issue through a partisan lens. It's even weirder that people aren't blaming this on Obama.

No Plans To Charge San Diego Family For Sea Rescue Of Baby

Parental decisions aside, the sea must be respected. Sailing is difficult enough without having to worry about the health of your crew.

Two Drug-Smuggling Tunnels Found In Otay Mesa; One Woman Arrested

Where are the kingpins on this side of the border? Oh, that's right. We're supposed to believe that the biggest business in the world is being operated by the guys who were regulars in Detention Class after school.

Petco Park 2014: More Than A Ballpark But Not All That Was Promised

We're talking about the same town which lost an NBA franchise at the dawn of the Jordan-era, right? One can only imagine what could have been in the Midway District had the Clippers not bolted. San Diego is a front-running town when it comes to baseball. Mediocre attendance for a mediocre team. A World Series or LCS appearance would easily push attendance past the 3-million mark, but the Padres will never attract top-flight players.

No discussion on Petco Park is complete without referencing the Lucchino/Moores/JMI Realty plan for building the team in time for Prop C. It was a textbook example of design and luck. It's not a coincidence that the Padres haven't been anywhere near the World Series since then.
