The Roundtable: Occupy San Diego, Medical Marijuana, Tijuana's New Police Chief

What lessons did your reporters learn from Ken Burns' "Prohibition" that aired this past week regarding government, society and alcohol. Did we glean anything that applies to the current controversy over marijuana?

What's Best Way To Reduce Traffic Congestion On I-5?


You and your listeners sound close to finding a win-win proposal for these coastal communities. Creating a fixed rail corridor on the I-5 as part of the needed expansion. This alternative could be a means to elimination of the current rail corridor, that now slows users of local roads, because they must sit while trains pass by them.

City Considering Major Cuts To Eliminate $70 Million Budget Deficit

The Mayor and Council Members plans to shed cost of business may have overlooked an obvious solution. Downsizing is a practice familiar to the editors, and businesses everywhere during these belt tightening times. Significant portions of the city beg to be annexed to their sister cities, including Del Mar, Escondido, Poway, and Chula Vista, along with unincorporated areas of the County.
Sure there will be an associated loss of some business districts in these annexations, but these areas are primarily bedroom communities with marginal revenue generation. Downsizing would also permit closing several council districts and foregoing their associated costs. Not to mention the obvious benefits of making the council a more managable size, thereby enabling council members to come to consensus on serious decision making. The County Board of Supervisors seems to manage well with five elected members represention large districts and sizeable constituencies.

"Brownouts" Slow Fire Department Response To Choking Toddler

Rather than getting caught up in the labor relations agenda behind this incident, shouldn't our first priority be to equip everyone with basic life saving skills. The need to use them can come at any time, any where.

SD County Lost Jobs Opportunity

The tone set by our elected leaders starts with those our public elects to Washington DC. You will find many of them oppose public funding for assisting the unemployed. Many voted against the continuation of unemployment benefits just days ago.

Who Won And Who Lost In Tuesday's Primary Election

The race for sheriff was a walkover for Gore due to his command of the tragic murder in North County last year, that captivated not only San Diego voters, but also national media attention.
Your audio clip of one County supervisor last night suggests supervisors are in denial of their own track records, and want to write of their lack of supporters due to voters dismay of incumbents in general.

Ariz. Immigration Law Flares Debate In S.D.

Thank you, Scott. Please remind your listeners about California Proposition 187 (also known as the Save Our State initiative) was a 1994 ballot initiative designed to prohibit illegal immigrants from using social services, health care, and public education in the U.S. State of California. It was initially passed by the voters but later found unconstitutional by a federal court, with appeals against the judgement being halted by Governor Gray Davis in 1999.

Proposition 187 heated up the ongoing issue of illegal immigration into the United States and the state's large undocumented Latino population. It was viewed by opponents as based largely on xenophobia toward immigrants of Hispanic origin but supporters insisted that their concerns were entirely economic.

Proposition 187 included the following key element:

All law enforcement agents who suspect that a person who has been arrested is in violation of immigration laws must investigate the detainee's immigration status, and if they find evidence of illegality they must report it to the attorney general of California, and to the federal Immigration and Naturalization Service

Along with the rapid increase in the Latino population in California, some analysts cite Governor Wilson's and the Republican Party's embrace of Proposition 187 as a cause of the rapid decline in the ability of the party to win statewide elections. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is the only Republican to win a California gubernatorial, senatorial, or presidential election since 1994.

The measure prompted support for similar bills and state laws since 1995 in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma and Texas.
