Supporting A Politician Through Scandal

How much are people willing to overlook in their elected officials? Plenty. But not this much. Filner has to go, for the good of all.

Filner: 'A Fair, Independent Investigation Will Support My Innocence'

Mayor Filner can't attend a Pride parade, because his presence will be too "distracting," but he somehow thinks he can govern elected officials, staff and a public that have no confidence in or respect for him. Astounding chutzpah.

Jung-Ho Pak Talks About Resigning From Orchestra Nova

Pak's comments really drive home the conclusion that he bears sole responsibility for the destruction of this orchestra. Put simply, when he couldn't get his way, he picked up his ball and ran home. His way was insisting on the right to hire and fire players based on how much they moved on stage. As he summed it up: "It’s not that I ever fired or hired a musician based on how much they move or based on their facial expression. But if a player simply doesn’t buy into this strategy of reaching out into an audience and risking - and that risk can be more than just emotion. It could be, 'Let’s try moving on stage for this one piece.' If a player doesn’t want to do that, what options are there for that organization?" Well Maestro, there were plenty of other options. Chief among them was valuing and protecting musicians for the music, because their PLAYING merited retention. Here's another: giving the audience credit for discerning fine music, as opposed to cheap theatrics. The Maestro's childish insistence on creating visual theatrics at the expense of musicianship and musicians is appalling. His denial or responsibility for killing this orchestra is too. Good riddance, Maestro.

Manchester's Foray Into Journalism Elicits Praise And Worry

Hilarious. The comments of Manchester reflect a mentality (if it even rises to that level of sentient thought) that is infantile. And kudos to KPBS for getting disgraced developer David Malcom, who pled guilty to conflict of interest violations, to endorse the journalistic approach. This paper is an embarrassment to San Diego.

Sanders Rips Into DeMaio At Budget Press Conference

It is nice to hear a respected, thoughtful, intelligent, honest, pragmatic elected official with nothing to gain concisely articulate what should be glaringly obvious to anyone with a modicum of intelligence: Carl DeMaio is a big stupid buffoon.
