San Diego County Turnout Just 20 Percent

We really need to ballot initiative reform....starting with quorum requirements. It's absurd that something like only 13% of eligible voters show up (or 87% of people can stay home) and yet make major decisions, like overturning the Barrio Logan community plan. It's like one member of the City Council showing up for a meeting and passing whatever laws s/he feels like because nobody else is there. And it makes it possible for special interests like industry to just buy whatever laws they want. Ridiculous.

What Do You Think Of Proposed Wings For Navy Pier?

I agree with heteromeles. Iconic architecture should be part of the overall aesthetic and function of the place -- integrated into its use(s) for the benefit of the public. This thing is just another (giant) "sore thumb" piece of public art, cluttering up the waterfront. Why can't we have art/architecture that is complimentary with the landscape and the surroundings, rather than junking it up?
