Peggy Pico by her demeanor and what she said seemed determined to minimize the validity and the strength of the opposition to the Jacobs plan for Balboa Park. She seemed to want to focus on the performance of Bob Filner at the City Council hearing. Of course, she got her disclaimer in there that the station was a recipient of Jacobs donations (what entity in this town is not a recipient??). But she clearly was biased. Toward the end of the segment, she pressed Roger Showley to validate her belief that once construction started, the opposition would just fall in line and accept the alteration of the Park. But it was funny that Showley didn't disagree with her, and said that eventually people would accept it, but it would take 10 years to happen!!!
This opposition is not going to go away until the Jacobs plan is dropped. I'm sure the lawyer representing the opposition will file for a restraining order to prevent work from going forward until the case works its way through the legal system.
