City Attorney and Lawyers from Jack in the Box say Mayor Filner's objections to North Park restaurant rebuild a ploy to divert attention from harassment scandalWhat is the point of a trial date on September 13? That restaurant will be open and operating by then. What do these people expect will happen? Jack in the Box will demolish their brand new restaurant and turn it into a park?!

Lawsuit filed against City of San Diego for allowing fast-food chain Jack in the Box to remodel North Park restaurantYankeedoodle: I was 11 years old in 1961, the year this restaurant was built. Now, I suppose there may be a FEW people who bought a house in that immediate neighborhood before 1961, maybe a young couple in their early 20's, who are still living there? But to say that is a mandate of the families who are most up in arms over this - I've read the articles, seen the pictures, and I'd bet these families are probably 10-20 years younger than I am right now. That argument, sorry to say, just does not fly. I'd have to see a lot of proof that these are old folks who are out on the corner, protesting, or these are old folks who have hired a law firm to represent their interests. Honestly, I can't even feel sorry for people who knowingly bought homes in the immediate vicinity of a fast-food restaurant, a bar, and a disintegrating building (which was the case where the condo complex is now being built). What, were they hoping JIB would quietly go away, and that parcel of land would become a green park for their children to play in? C'mon...let's get real. And seriously, where's the uproar about the Bluefoot Bar across the street? I'd be more upset about that, drunks in my yard, urinating and vomiting at 2:00 AM, than I would be about someone ordering tacos at 10:00 PM.

Lawsuit filed against City of San Diego for allowing fast-food chain Jack in the Box to remodel North Park restaurantJust my opinion...but if these neighbors don't want to live near the Jack in the Box, let 'em move. Didn't they all buy their homes with the full knowledge the restaurant was already there? Why don't they complain about the HUGE condominium complex going up across the street? Or the bar that's already there? Oh, yeah....what's it called? NIMBY!
