Very impressive! Keep it up. Looks like July will go through the roof.
Yes Sara..you're a big deal now! When are you gonna reveal your true ID? (no pun intended!)
Mike Pinto says...While most of the posters to this blog are angry reactionaries, some progressive comment does seep thru. Alas, now that Joe G. has lost you will lose his two supporters.

Hey Mikey...The Guzz has several thousand supporters, inlcuding yours truly. And, in case you forgot, your buddy Das lost too. So much for his bid for the White House.
The Kid says...Keep up the good work. I guess the News-Press mess has done for Sara what Hurricane Katrina did for Anderson Cooper. The way the news works, baby. -The Kid
[By the way, has anybody looked into the strategic and financial connections between Rob Lowe, a small cadre of wealthy Montecitans, a certain Coalition for Sensible Planning (CPS) and The Wendy? Could be a juicy story here. I heard a wild rumor once that Rob Lowe considers Gary Earle of CSP to be his ‘attack dog’. Indy are you listening?]
Gary Earle's response.. "ruff, ruff..ruff!!"
(NOTE to Sara: please post this, it addresses a post that came up in two threads)To 5:07pm, [following your lead of posting this twice....]What's the problem? In your world of classism, is it not palatable to have "wealthy Montecitans" in support of people in "more affordable" areas like Noleta? It's no wild rumor, but a known fact that Lowe was affliated with a group that supports the same principles as CSP.I know Gary Earle personally, and he exemplifies integrity in every way. If you disagree, then it goes without saying that you don't know Gary Earle at all.As for CSP and all of its supporters, their priority is the QUALITY OF LIFE in their neighborhoods and all of South Coast Santa Barbara. It is an ideal that any true fan of Santa Barbara should respect.
I understand why and support you on that and I am trying not to have posts posted twice -- it's usually a mistake on my part when I am dealing with dozens a day. I also can't edit your comments so "Notes" of that nature are fine - but they will show up.Thanks for explaining though...
Press Conference Thursday, noon, at DLG. Be there! Support restoring fair and unbiased journalism to the News-Press and the Santa Barbara community!
Looks like the spike in May was from Travis' drunk driving episode...Congrats, Sara, for successfully providing a forum for such a wide variety of personalities to express their viewpoints and doing it gracefully.
Hey Mikey...The Guzz has several thousand supporters, inlcuding yours truly. And, in case you forgot, your buddy Das lost too. So much for his bid for the White House.Hey Bill,What are you so angry about? Everything you post has a nasty edge to it. I realize there's passionate discussion going on here at BB, but wouldn't it serve you better to make your points calmly and respectfully? If you want people to actually listen to what you have to say and respect you instead of tuning you out, you might consider it....
The best way to improve the quality of life in Santa Barbara would be for everyone to minimize the use of their car.Less pollution, less global warming, less traffic, less need for environmental destruction in places like Nigeria and Ecuador caused by oil extraction.Less influence of the politically unstable Mideast as well.According to census data, Santa Barbara are resident drive way more per capita than other suburban areas. And then we complain about traffic.Most of the no-growthers really are just angry about traffic... if they got out of their car and on to the bus or on their bike, they'd be a lot happier.Resources like water and sewage capacity are totally artificial here anyway. We can choose to have as much as we want by infrastructure development.
Mike Pinto says...I know Bill bothers most people but not me. I thrive on reactionaries attacking the agenda of the people.
Dear Diva,Sorry that you feel that talking about Das and his loss on November 6th is "nasty". I guess your ultrasensitivity might be tied to having to watch your leader fall from grace so publicly.Please allow me to calmly and repectively apologize for using nasty words like "buddy", "lost", or "White House". My goodness, what was I thinking.Hugs and kisses,Bill
To 8:56 am--No, it's not just about traffic. Check the thread on "Was DLG Rally a success?" to see the discussion on the impacts of development, and how/when to determine build-out.(The thread got going in two places, and it seems to be continuing there.)
As one of the brand new 13,000 visitors, congratulations on a very exciting site--it's really fun to follow the numerous and various opinions of SB bloggers and I think you lead well by sorting issues into interesting threads..I'm hooked and I'll be back...though cloaked in a veil of anonymity...
