Jury Deliberations Begin In Sidewalk Chalk Vandalism Case

A former B of A employee recently revealed how they were instructe4d to lie and mislead customers for loans, among other things. None of the CEOs of financial companies which committed illegalities contributing to the latest "bubble" crash has been prosecuted. Something is seriously wrong with Goldsmith's protecting banks from hurt feelings. San Diego needs more Filners and fewer Goldsmiths.

City Considers Taxi Industry Overhaul Amid Reports Of Low Wages And Unsafe Cabs

I suspect most of those who say "They don't HAVE to work for those wages!" also would be angry if they didn't work and got food stamps and other poverty benefits. The complainers seem to live in a bubble, and don't see the homeless sleeping on the streets, the fathers and mothers begging at traffic corners, the 20% unemployed (true number, not government, and it may be higher), the dwindling middle class, the thousands who line up when Wal-Mart has 50 jobs available. Meanwhile, U.S. banks just had the most profitable quarter in history, corporations avoid hundred of millions in taxes, as do the "1%."
Another reason taxi drivers prefer not to accept credit cards is that they must pay the cab owners (the real culprits behind unsafe cabs) in cash, weekly, and credit card payments may not be credited to the drivers in time.

New City Hall On Manchester's Waterfront Could Gain Traction

JohnAGordon hit the target dead center. Developers have run San Diego for far too long. In a review of the book Armed Madhouse--about political corruption--a political scientist named San Diego the most corrupt city of its size in the U.S.
This from the article says it all:
"Councilman Carl DeMaio has financial and political ties to Manchester that date back to 2003, not long after DeMaio arrived in San Diego. Manchester’s U-T San Diego endorsed DeMaio on the front page, and the newspaper owner gave DeMaio’s political action committee $49,000 in the last reporting cycle.
DeMaio strongly supports Manchester’s Navy Broadway development project." (As my granddaughter might put it, "Duh!")

Poll Shows Prop 30 Could Get Support It Needs

Did those who say Prop 30 will not help education, this from the Legislative Analyst:
■Fiscal Impact:In 2012-13, planned spending reductions, PRIMARILY TO EDUCATION PROGRAMS WOULD NOT OCCUR.
The state would increase personal income taxes on HIGH INCOME taxpayers for seven years and sales taxes for four years. The new tax revenues would be available to fund programs in the state budget.

A NO vote on this measure means: The state would not increase personal income taxes or sales taxes. State SPENDING REDUCTIONS, PRIMARILY TO EDUCATION PROGRAMS WOULD TAKE EFFECT in 2012-13.
(Upper case added for clarity.)

Poll Shows Prop 30 Could Get Support It Needs

Rather than accepting CalDefender's points on faith, it's best to read the info pamphlets about the election. I have, and I'm voting Yes on 30. (I'm not starting a Comments debate with CalD. Just suggesting you look further.)
