Blue Line Ventura

I received this from a reader in Ventura...I wasn't for or against the blue line here but perhaps now the word will get out. If there really was only two days notice -- that's bothersome no matter where you stand. -- Sara


I am looking for support from our neighbors to the north. The city of Ventura has just allowed a group to post global warming poles along the ocean front promenade and they painted a blue wave on the city owned parking structure.

The only notice the public received about this was 2 days before they were installed on public property and using public staff time.

Sara, here is the posting in "Light Blug Blog" about it:

I was amused by the part that said: "Unlike Santa Barbara, Ventura does not have to deal with a self-appointed media bully masquerading as a newspaper. So the entire public information/art project was performed without lawyers and vitriolic invective against the volunteer artists."

I just feel so sorry for those people in Ventura.

Now for sure or God strike us dead we all know that the property values for coastal real estate in Ventura will be going down, just because of this public art project.

Thankfully, the smart opinion leaders of Santa Barbara saved us earlier from this plague that now has afflicted Ventura!

I cannot wait for the first lack of "disclosure" lawsuit to hit Beaver and Company.

Did anyone notice that the parallel between housing prices and the light blue line?

In Ventura, both are lower than in Santa Barbara!
