La Jolla Cove Stinks. What Are The Options For Cleaning Up The Bluffs?

What are the options that are mentioned in the last paragraph? From what I have read in other articles, it would not be permissable to even wash it off with water. Of course, if there is a large rain storm, it would wash the area. The thinking is that if it is washed off, it would cause a lot of contamination of the ocean and shore. They should just bite the bullet one time and wash it off, then wash it frequently so that there is not as much material washed into the ocean. The bacteria level would not rise significantly on these frequent cleanings, and the area would be more pleasant.

Candy Sales Another Form of Human Trafficking

I've often seen children under 15 selling candy or other products to raise money for scholarships, educational trips and other activities. In the past, I have also seen kids selling items to help fund a youth sports team. What about Girl Scout Cookie sales in front of a store? So are these considered exploitation? The writer needs to give a little more explanation.

Civil Rights Group: Voter ID Laws Could Disenfranchise Minorities

I was absolutely shocked at how easy it would be for someone to vote several times. I lost my mail in ballot, and walked in the polling station, telling them what happened. I tried to show them my driver's license to prove who I was, and they told me specificaly to NOT show it to them. All someone would have to do is get a name and address, claim to be that person early in the morning, and vote. I do not believe the reports that voter fraud is almost non-existant. I saw an article that said in one congressional district or state, 15,000 votes were cast by dead people and people claiming that they lived at business addresses, vacant lots, and addresses that do not exist. As far as having a voter ID disinfranchising minority and low income voters, this is absolutely not true. People with low income manage to come up with ID for public assistance such as food stamps, and the statement about minorities is very racist. This statement implies that minorities are too stupid, or lazy to get an ID. This statement is the height of arragance! I think that Mexico has an excellent system to register voters. A voter needs 3 documents: Proof of citizenship such as a birth certificate, proof of residence such as a utility bill, and eligibility to vote. They then get a voter's card, and this card is often used for other ID because of the difficulty of faking it. I would be all for this system. The racist claim is always pulled out when someone has no proof to back up their claim. These are the people who have something to gain by pitting one segment of society against another.

San Diego To Sell Old Trolley Cars To Mendoza, Argentina

I understand that the new cars may be easier to enter and exit, and more comfortable. What I wonder is where the money is comming from? The city seems to be short of money, same with the state, and federal governments. They all need to learn how to budget. I think that it is interesting that a lot of the old Pacific Electric (Los Angeles) Trolley cars were shipped to South America, and I think Argentina when the line was closed in the early '60s.

Business Groups Protest California's Greenhouse Gas Law

Not only will AB32 put an unreasonable burden on businesses, but may drive even more businesses out of California and taking jobs with them. The surviving businesses will have to charge more for their products. All this hardship for nothing. The tiny amount of CO2 eliminated by this scheme will be insignificant globaly. What makes matters worse is that the entire claim that man made CO2 is changing the climate is completely false and all of this hardship will do nothing. I have read and researched the origonal reports, and they are based on false assumptions and corruption of data to fit the hypothesis. Even the Grandfather of all this, Roger Revelle, after decades of research came to the conclusion that man's activities has had a minimal effect on the climate. He also said that it would cause extreme hardship to the population of the earth to try to limit CO2 emissions- the consequences would far exceed any benefit.

70s Soul Superstars (MY MUSIC)

Wow!! What a line-up of stars! By the way, Patty La Belle's first hit record (reached 15 on Billboard's Hot 100) was recorded in 1962 "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman". Good early '60s doo-wop song, but it was a remake of the song, origionaly recorded in 1946.

Fewer Californians Like High Speed Rail or New Pension Law

I'm glad to see that people understand that bond money doesn't just appear out of air. It is like charging on a credit card- you have to pay it back. The other problem is that passenger rail rarely breaks even, much less makes a profit, so it will need government subsidies. If passenger train lines were profitable, Amtrac would not exist! BN, UP, and the other rail lines dumped money loosing passenger service on the government and said good riddence to bad rubbish. Both bond repayment money and subsidies could go to education instead. As it is, Governor Brown is holding a gun to the head of K-12 kids and saying that if we don't pass tax increases, there will be less funding for schools. So what is it going to be like having to throw money into the bottomless pit of the high speed rail line? Pull out the gun again and threaten children's education to get yet another tax increase. California needs to cut its losses and stop the highspeed rail.

Midnight Screening: 'Big Trouble In Little China"

I enjoy this film. The cliches are part of the fun. It is sort of John Wayne meets Bruce Lee.
