San Diego County Turnout Just 20 Percent

"There was no high-ticket, sexy component to this race."

Since when does doing your civic duty require there to be a "sexy" component to voting!?

It's sad that our electorate is more interested in watching the inane ramblings of the Kardashians' than taking part in making this a better world.

San Diego Airport Seeking Public Opinion On Long-Term Plan

It seems that the NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) syndrome is strong here in San Diego. Not everything should go to a public vote, since we're not a pure democracy.

Sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the "greater good" and having better transportation options requires bold leaders to take charge and make these tough decisions.

After all, the motto for San Diego County is "The noblest motive is the public good."

PETA's Anti-SeaWorld Poster To Go Up At Lindbergh Field

I was somewhat conflicted on my stance on SeaWorld and the orcas situation. On the one hand, they're not beating the animals senseless like seals on the beach. And SeaWorld also generates several millions of dollars for the San Diego economy.

But on the other hand, it's 2014. The 21st century and we humans should be better evolved than getting enjoyment from animals held in captivity. If the tables were turned, how would we humans feel if our freedoms were taken away and we were kept in cages to be gawked at by animals?

So, I'm no longer liking what SeaWorld is doing by keeping these animals captive, simply for our entertainment.

There has to be a way to figure this out where it's a win-win for both humans and animals. I just don't know what that would be.

San Diego Judicial Candidate's Campaign Signs Called Misleading

Sneaky. Very, very sneaky. And he wants to be a judge!?

I don't think so!

No vote for you, Mr. Gosselin!

Bill Horn's Basic Faith

So, if I don't like paying my taxes (which I don't, but I still do it.), then it's fine for me to just ignore it and not pay the bill? And not suffer any penalties, because I "feel" that tax collecting is un-American?

Yeah, right. Good luck with that.

As Al Capone said "I've never heard of anyone getting more than five years for income tax evasion," said the man known as "Scarface." "It's a blow to the belt."

Bernardo Fire Evacuations, Street Closures

The "See, was that so hard?" was actually directed at KPBS news article writers. I should have been more clear.

Purple = Evacuation Notification Areas
Red = Fire Perimeter

See, was that so hard, KPBS news writers?
