In cross-appeal, Save Our Heritage Organisation rehashes fight over plan to remove traffic from Balboa Park's Plaza de PanamaTodd Gloria and Jan Goldsmith comments show a foregone predisposition to support the Plaza de Panama Committee that frustrates me as a Citizen of San Diego. Instead of being open to multiple inputs, they are open to the inputs that pay for their political campaigns. Ever seen the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" monkeys? They remind me of those every time someone attends a City Council meeting, where the Public Testimony is limited to 3 minutes or less - and they turn away to talk to their aids or someone else, ignoring the Public. No wonder the Public becomes disenchanted with its elected officials, including judges that advocate their personal opinions from the bench when making decisions on matters such as the SOHO lawsuit. These "public servants" are anything but - at least when it comes to preserving and enhancing a Public Park that was established in trust for future visitors and residents long before they came on the scene. Mayor Filner made a lot of promises on his campaign trail that people such as I believed. His actions since being elected speak much louder than his words, which today sound like hollow packages when shaken.
