Twitter Suspends Accounts Of San Diego GOP Members

The fake twitter impersonations represent the worst type of underhanded politicking. We already get more false accusations, bias, and untruths than we can possibly filter. This must be stopped now - is there no integrity left anywhere????

Will The Arts Save The Embarcadero?

Re the plans for the embarcadero/waterfront park at the foot of Broadway:
I applaud the Calif Coastal Commission for taking a strong stand in favor of the park that was originally conceived for that area. What the developers and the media do not consider is the effect on the people who live in San Diego and the quality of life here. We must conserve the beauty, keep some open space, and preserve the few remaining views of the ocean and bay.
The primary emphasis is always centered on the amount of money that a project will bring to the SD economy! The citizens of San Diego will not directly benefit much from having thousands of tourists pouring off of cruise ships and inundating the city and it's surrounds. This will exacerbate an already crowded city, and it's attractions such as Old town, the Zoo, Balboa Park, etc. Where can the residents go for a little serenity where we don't have to stand in line, fight for parking spaces, wait an hour for a dinner reservation, or find a shade tree or an unoccupied bench.
America's finest city should be an assessment based on how it supports and provides for it's residents, and how it preserves it's beauty and culture -- not on a rating from some convention delegation, or some tourist organization who's objectives are how many people they can stuff in and the amount of money that represents.
