Proposed Internet Rules Affect San Diego Consumers

It's a license to provide Cadillac service to only clients that pay extra while letting the broad base of internet service lag and flounder even more than ever. (we've already fallen far behind the performance of rest of the developed world at significantly greater consumer cost.)
In addition to increasingly inadequate service at increasing cost, we can enjoy the promise that the next greatest innovation on the internet will only be able to occur outside the US.
If the US internet services performed anywhere near the top compared to other countries with first rate service, carrying TV services on it wouldn't even be much of a burden and there would be no need for a 'fast lane'. ...almost as if it was let to lag so it would need an extra money fast lane.
Just sayin'

Filner Has New Plans For Plaza de Panama

I don't want to see vehicles removed from the Plaza, I like access the way it is. If changes must occur I would support only reducing _some_ parking in the plaza, perhaps by _expanding_ handicapped spaces, maintaining bus/delivery/service access and removing only valet & standard parking from the Plaza and expanding it into the proposed parking garage. I feel privileged to have been able to drive through the East El Prado since it's closed to normal access and i really don't want Plaza access to become only rare and historic privilege the same way. Just being able to give friends and family a 3-minute driving tour through the park and be able to drop people off in the center of the park is tremendously more valuable to me than trying to shuttle persons with restricted mobility no matter how good the shuttling service.

Removing vehicle access from the Plaza effectively removes many people with restricted mobility by making the barriers and efforts required to visit that much greater than their mobility issues already do.

Please preserve our access to the Plaza de Panama

Public Broadcasting Legend Huell Howser Dies

A truly warm and wonderful man, he will both be missed in person and enjoyed on video for many years to come. Many places he led me to in California over the years, and I often referred others to his shows in trying to explain how there's just so many things to see and do here in California for vacations and day trips that anyone can just go to without spending a fortune traveling. ...And, yes; I also daydreamed a few times about going on a weekend trip with him and my family to somewhere unknown and fascinating. Thank You Huell Howser.

Review: 'Lincoln'

Outstanding performances and a beautifully crafted movie, i loved it but its pace is necessarily thorough, careful and slow so its surely going to bore the action-film seeker.

U-T San Diego's Mayoral Poll Skewed Republican

A poll conducted the way this one appears to have been created and executed is factually worthless, it can only be of value to some agenda other than actually knowing the real state of the electorate.

This is just one more thing that confirms my decision to drop the paper. It may be that the BS on the polls is just one more example of Republicans lying to themselves to feel good or bandwagon-politics where they hope if they say they're going to win often enough, people will vote to join the perceived future winner; probably both. The UT isn't the only one guilty of it certainly; but the obvious slant and failure of the UT to be an unbiased source of information makes it completely unacceptable as a news source. So i do what i do with the other pitifully biased programs and reports that are just too much to accept without wearing waders, i go elsewhere.

Additionally, I see the logic of bandwagon-politics to be flawed anyway. If I was for example debating on whether I should bother to vote or skip it; I would be far more motivated to vote if I thought my preferred candidate were behind. A comfortable lead by the candidate means “he doesn’t really need my vote, he’ll win anyway”. The logic I see being used in the poll is that the bias was designed to manipulate voters that had decided to vote but just not for whom, in the hope they would jump on the bandwagon and join the winning team; even if that was a lie. Pretty sad tactics as well as debatable which effect would be more powerful.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Read this man's biography some time; even just hit the web. A truly admirable man, greatly treasured and greatly missed.

USD Cancels Visit Over Academic's Same-Sex Marriage Support

A deplorable decision.

The catholic church has already abdicated all authority to even express an opinion on same sex marriages now that vast amounts of CRIMINAL same sex relationships are being exposed within their ranks that were covered up as a matter of institutional policy; …relationships that have certainly been going on for centuries in absurd extreme opposite of their anti-gay teachings and persecutions.

For the college to extend that defective moral judgment to the extent that it would cancel Tina Beattie's presentation on an unrelated subject just because of her more progressive opinions on same sex marriage is overtly stupid and demonstrates again how the catholic church is completely out of touch with reality and fairness and propagates that foolishness down to disrupt other valuable educational opportunities because of its divisive teachings. A college of higher learning should be able to see the value of her presentation on its own merits; not cancel it because she wants the church to evolve and move forward instead of becoming completely obsolete.

San Diego Gas Price Drops Below $4

It's not gone without notice that the price spikes up instantly on the mere hint of any supply disruption, crude price change (up or down), or unrest in some part of the world (even if it's not a part of the world that supplies much oil)... then takes weeks to crawl back down long after whatever issue is long gone.

Where does all that money in between go before the actual production costs go up and where does it go after the production costs fall back down, and where does it go when the price spikes for reasons that don't even actually change the production costs. Considering recent history, it’s not going into additional safety or production capacity, maintenance or stability of the refineries which have a stunningly large number of catastrophic problems and critical unscheduled repairs (which also spike the gas price).

...And why does an industry that is completely capable of sustaining itself and routinely achieves world record profits... needs subsidies!?!?

U-T San Diego Circulation Drops 5 Percent In Last Year

The decision was simple... i voted with my dollars when DM bought the UT because i knew where he was going with it. The money that would have gone to Mr. Manchester now goes to KPBS.

I feel no need to pay to get his personal message and slant; if he wants my resources for that he needs to pay me instead.

Sadly, i do miss the paper in hand and the handy plastic bags but the paper has to be worthy and i can buy my own plastic bags. If he ever gets bored with his new toy and sells it to someone that restores it to something more reasonable i will reconsider, but i don't think there will be a 'paper' to subscribe to by then.
