Rosijoni, I’m glad you finally pointed out what everyone pointing fingers at JIB has been tiptoeing all along. 30th Street is the busiest north/south artery through North Park with thousands of cars and the #2 bus line navigating those two awkward intersections on a daily basis. Jack in the Box does not add to the traffic problems here. And now what is surely going to be a big sore thumb, the North Parker, is only going to add to the traffic problems at this intersection. I can only imagine what it will be like once it is finished, but it scares me to see what is happening on that construction site right now http://blog.architectasdeveloper.com/. What gall to actually put the “Do The Right Thing Jack” banner on the their fence! Hey Pot, Kettle calling. I’m sure Bluefoot is finally glad to have some of the heat taken away from them. I don’t think any JIB customers park their cars in front of the neighbor’s homes. JIB customers don’t throw up and urinate on peoples lawns or the alleys behind their homes. I wonder is the protests would be as loud if there were a brewery going in instead of Jack in the Box? I guess it’s fine as long as it doesn’t have a drive-thru.
I am actually quite happy with the way things are turning out. As a 15-year resident and homeowner, I find JIB having a drive-thru very convenient. This whole thing is about a game of "gotcha" you knocked down an extra wall. Technically, true, a minor violation, but in the end, the footprint is essentially the same, nothing more, nothing less. The fact is, 30th & Upas is one busy intersection that is about to get even busier, and it has nothing to do with JIB. Aside from being a major eyesore, North Parker is going to a much bigger neighborhood headache than JIB ever was or ever will be.
Is there anyone else sick of the traffic clusterf*#k cause by slow city development at Texas and El Cajon Blvd?? Come on already!Traffic is backed up all the way up Texas from Mission Valley EVERY DAY! Get a new Mayor already and pay attention to business!

The owners of the theatre would never allow that to happen. I see how much you sun-baked locals have done to support The Ken. Do you think there'd be talk of closure on the 27th if business was good? Add don't s*it on Illinois: one of its fallen sons is swinging his heart out to keep this lovely theatre alive. If it does close -- and I don't think it will -- don't blame the owners or Landmark for its fall. Blame yourselves.
North Park Night Shoot right outside West Coast Tavern.
Anyone who thinks San Diego and surrounding cities are safe or safer is delusional. The next terrorist attack will happen and it will be from the very communities that abound in the San Diego area. The border is wide open and the waterfront is easy to get to. We have huge populations of the very people who share the same belief system as the ISIS folks. It should not surprise anyone when a terrorist, organized or self radicalized rises up and strikes right here in San Diego.
The real warmongers are making a lot more money than Poor Obama. Perhaps he can build a coalition of free democratic countries to put terrorists out of commision. For decades, what has happened to our veterans is inexcusable. Atrocious Injury in war and lack of care at home. Those battle loving buckaroos Cheney and Bush should cough up the big bucks they got. Split that with the vets for doing their grunt work.
