A Growing Number Of Preschoolers Have Extensive Tooth Decay

"Free emergency room dental care"?! I defy you to name ONE E.R. in San Diego County that provides dental care, "free" or not...

Are TV Ads About Proposition 29 To Increase Cigarette Taxes Accurate?

As "addicts" (as ^ "Mmikey" ^ calls us), smokers are going to smoke, regardless of cost. The Yes On 29 commercial that gave a specific percentage of people that would quit was just as nonsensical as Ms. Smokey up there in the clip. How on Earth can they possibly give an exact number? If high costs were a deterrent, people wouldn't take heroin and cocaine. It's an addiction!

A point that I wish the "No On 29"ers would have made: This will be a regressive tax, affecting the poor-to-working class Californians far more than the middle-to-uppers. Over the last 30 years or so, the smoking rates have dropped sharply among the richer, more well-educated folks; Not so much down here among us dregs.

New Year To Bring New Laws To San Diego

All they have to do is read a sentence or two; It's not gonna push your precious white people out. (Roy Cohn? The guy was a creep!)

A Growing Number Of Preschoolers Have Extensive Tooth Decay

I'd be happy to translate "Dothscribble" for you, "JeanMarc"-- Here goes:

"I suffer from paranoid schizophrenia, dropped out of school in 8th grade, and have an illogical fear and hatred of not only Latinos, but blacks as well: Hey, I kick it old-school!"

A Local Hoarder Tries To Change His Ways

"It's no wonder we hide." Yes, you are so right. Me too.

San Diego Searches For Ways To Deal With Hoarders

Boy, ol' Fire Marshall Bill, er, Chuck Strickland, must be one of those "compassionate conservatives" I keep hearing about, though they don't actually exist--It really seems as if he is advising members of the community NOT to try to help hoarding sufferers to clean up their messes in order to comply with code. Ahh, they'll just do it again, hopeless cases, blah blah blah, seems to be his message here.

So what does he propose should be done with hoarders? Everyone needs to live SOMEwhere; Does he think they should all be evicted, forced to live out of over-packed shopping carts on the streets? Jail? Or perhaps we could just round 'em all up and shoot 'em!
