How Entertainment Works on You

PGStomberg I am confused with your comments about your defenition of entertainment. You were correct in assuming that I meant entertainment such as "stories and games" and I assumed you also defined entertainment is a similar fasion due to your comments during the show; "You know, it’s 1:00 a.m. and you need to go to bed but you just have to finish the murder mystery and find out who did it."

So I think I may have missed the point a little when listening to the show and making my comments.To clear it up bit; I don't think that entertainment isn't a big part of people's lives. I just don't think it is the cause of people not achieving their goals, I believe it goes much deeper than the availability of entertainment.

How Entertainment Works on You

Historic records show that entertainment has always been a large part of human lives. So I don't think it is a big issue; however, it always gets more accessable so there are more distractions, it is just our responsibility to not let these distractions get in the way of our ambitions. I think most people are intelligent enough to know and deal with this issue so it is not a problem.

Sports Update: Chargers Camp, Padres Losses, Aztecs Football

I 100% agree with Lee "Hacksaw" Hamilton's comments about LT and the Chargers in general.

I would like to know how the CSU system's budget is going to effect the Aztecs sporting success this year. I currently attend SDSU and there are many cuts due to the CA budget cuts and would assume similar things are happening to the Aztecs sporting program.

Is Local Government Transparent Enough?

Also, to answer Pudgil, yes the taxpayer (ie the government agency involved) should have to plan this into their budget. If they have responsbility enforced by law, why should another party have to pay for their responsibilty?

How is 63 requests in 6 months considered high demand?

Is Local Government Transparent Enough?

Shouldn't there be some punishment in place if records are not produced as demanded by the law? If this was a private company, there would be all kinds of fines involved.

Controversial Plan to Disperse Seals from Children's Pool

My support leans a little toward the children, since that is what the area was intended for in the first place and the city has never kept its side of the deal by keeping the beach clean for the children.

But my question is directed to the environmentalist (of which I consider myself to be) that support the seals; why are you not pushing for the wall to be knocked down and the area returned to its original state? This artificial cove is supporting the highest level predator in the area (besides humans), which in turn destroys the marine ecosystem in the area; first by their overeating of their prey, which is just about anything in the ocean, and second by bacteria levels due to high concentration of the seal waste. So if you were really an environmentalist you would be pushing to get the wall knocked down and have the marine ecosystem restored to a more natural state.

I personally believe that the seals would not be harmed just because they are "shoo'd" away. They would probably be better off. It like letting your children lay around the house all day rather than get out and do something with theirselves, they may not want to get out of the house, but you know it is better for them.
