San Diego Student Robots Launch Balls, Careers

MANY, many thanks to the corporate sponsors of all of the robotics teams AND to their "mentors" -- adults who donate significant amounts of time and energy to guide each team. "Build season" requires a big commitment and all kinds of time. Good luck to all of the teams!

Developer Fee Rescinded By San Diego City Council

"The business community will work with the city to find another solution" -- oh, man. More of the same. Affordable housing? WE DON'T NEED ANY STEEEEKIN POOR PEOPLE IN THIS CITY, is that the idea? Let them ride a bus for two hours each way to work at minimum wage jobs?

Marijuana May Hurt The Developing Teen Brain

Ah, ad hominem attacks from the backwater population. Enjoy the ride, kids. Rub both brain cells together for warmth if need be.

Marijuana May Hurt The Developing Teen Brain

This story is torn from the headlines of 1970. It was ridiculed on the NPR website.

San Diego Moving Ahead With 2024 Summer Olympic Bid

Is today April 1st? Did someone think they saw a sign pasted on San Diego that reads "SUCKER"? Hosting the Olympics DOES NOT turn a profit. No more than building an NFL team a new stadium, if that rings any bells.

I just cannot believe that I'm hearing this on KPBS. This is beyond belief. Is there really a soul that feels our little border town is so fast asleep that we can be hoodwinked into hosting the Olympics?? This is maddening.

San Diego City Council Passes Medical Marijuana Regulations

Odd that KPBS would not include any comments from MMJ advocates. Kind of telling, actually. And no MMJ dispensary in Hillcrest? Really?

Steampunk Carousel Outing Cut Short By Security Guards

I do not believe that it has ever been claimed that mall cops have more than double-digit IQs. Look at that photo -- how much time and care went into those costumes? Steampunk overall is a fascinating, original and WEIRD subculture which threatens no one whatsoever. Why Westfield mall wouldn't embrace and publicize this gathering is curious at best. Was imagination outlawed when I wasn't looking? These people are far from wannabe gang members or skate punks.

Kind of story that makes me glad to see shopping malls suffer massively from Internet shopping. Idiocy deserves to be rewarded.

San Diego Researcher Reacts To Damning North Korea Report

@jeanmarc -- xwagner why don't you move to North Korea since you seem to think it is a bastion of liberty and freedom compared to the US?

I didn't say anything about North Korea not being some kind of hellhole -- have you ever seen that YouTube video of very young North Korean kids playing guitar on stage with terrifying fixed smiles? My comment had far more to do with the UN somehow perpetually overlooking the habit of the US to invade or attack other countries. The list is quite long, and that's just since 1980. With 9/11/01 as an excuse, that famous painting of Jupiter eating his children comes to mind. The notion of complaining about a hundred-pound gorilla in the room when there's an eight-hundred-pound gorilla in the room seems... quite bizarre.

San Diego Researcher Reacts To Damning North Korea Report

Um... sure. Where's the UN report on US-caused deaths in Afghanistan and Pakistan? Glass houses and all that. Does North Korea have the largest prison population on Earth? No, wait, that's the US. I don't see North Korea flying Playstation drones over other countries and blowing up wedding parties at random. Are we certain this doesn't have more to do with the UN aching to get at North Korea's natural resources and the fact that North Korea doesn't enjoy a Rothschild-centric central bank? It's odd that our "enemies" have that feature in common: no central bank. Will the UN recommend humanitarian aerial bombing of civilian targets like they did in Libya?

Gloria sets ambitious agenda for San Diego one month before runoff election

Wasn't this guy supposed to hold the reins until the upcoming special election? Could someone throw a bucket of water on him?
