I am very much anti-death penalty, but I would lobby for an exception in this case. They should kill the bastard twice.


Mindy Ross June 12, 2012 @ 8:42 p.m.

I'm for the death penalty if it's obvious the party is guilty. I'd pull the switch on those two guys that raped and murdered the doctor's wife and daughters on the east coast. But too many black men are wrongly accused. White people particularly can't tell them apart, and for that reason, I do not think we should have a death penalty.

It is so slanted that the headlines and story text should be in italics!


Jimgee June 12, 2012 @ 7:07 p.m.

The UT has been so utterly biased for so long that readers might not even see the new level of slant.

Sempra probably wants to profit from float: the delay between the date the customer makes a deposit to the household account and the date the bill is debited to the account. By forcing ratepayers to pay their bills in advance, Sempra could accumulate a $300 million or more permanent float and use it to invest in the stock market or loan money to credit card companies. This is a scheme for Sempra to obtain interest free money from ratepayers to invest in derivatives or other financial products.

Why would anyone want to pay to get to somewhere that they can get to by the FREEway?

Kima is more beautiful than the beautiful people she is photo'd with. Best, Don Bauder


Burwell June 11, 2012 @ 9:37 p.m.

The Beautiful People are under severe financial stress, no doubt about it. As an example, prospective debutantes are no longer being tested for purity during the vetting process due to a shortage of funds.

And how about a happy birthday to Bauder? Turns 76 on May 28. Best, Don Bauder

Don Bauder May 25, 2012 @ 12:36 p.m.

I do love chocolate but can't accept gifts for ethical reasons. So just have a piece of chocolate on me. Thanks for the thought. Best, Don Bauder

No, No, No a thousand times No. I travel for a living. Like the airlines, the hotels rely on business travellers for a large chunk of their income. Such a tax on hotel stays would be the highest I've seen, and I've been in hotels in all 50 states. Business travellers don't use the amenities these taxes supposedly improve. Our hotel tax is fair, in comparison to other cities. Let's keep it that way.

Football is immoral.

That's fine with me. Anyone who wants to engage in immoral acts, like prostitution, or smoking pot, or playing football...can go right ahead. It doesn't hurt me or anyone else who's not a willing participant.

I just don't want any public tax dollars to finance your brothels, smoking clubs, or football stadiums.

Is that too much to ask when the economy is in the toilet?

...and actually, if San Diego invested in brothels at least you'd see some TOT revenues. Or if you legalized pot, you'd be able to fire half the police force and not pay those outrageous pensions...hmmmm.

Seems like the only bad investment is football. Wonder why that's the one the politicians are so eager to spend your money on, while publicly opposing prostitution and pot.

Guess it's got something to do with morality...

"In the extreme case, as the public learns more about combat risks, the military may not be able to recruit enough personnel to fight the kinds of wars it now rushes into." Don, I don't think you meant that remark quite the way you said it. I certainly hope you didn't. Our military services don't choose the wars they fight, and if there's any rushing into them it is because our politicians oblige a rush. And I can safely say that most of the military personnel would prefer peacetime to wartime (there is a minority who get a big rush from combat, but they are just that, a minority) when they can hone their skills and go home to hearth and home at night.

As to the general thrust of your comment, with all the risks involved, including sudden death, I doubt that one more category of war injury or war-related illness is going to change the willingness of some to serve by much.

Eventually San Diego.will default (Like Greece,Iceland,GM,Chrysler,the Post Office, Harrisburg, Pa.,Jefferson County, Alabama,Stockton) In the year of the lord 2011 The city of San Diego borrowed 100 million The city of LA borrowed 1 billion The state of Calif borrowed 7 billion The feds borrowed 3 trillion

In the year 2012 the feds increased the budget deficit by 1.2 trillion. The city of San Diego borrowed 83 million and cut 200 million from its' infrastructure budget,

The state of Calif passed a balanced budget which in several months because of missed revenue projection has a 3.5 billion deficit. If a car or home owner or renter defaults then they lose their car, house or apartment. If the San Diego defaults they lose nothing. Thus, why not default on as large a sum as possible which I believe is the directions the city of San Diego, the state of Calif and the post office are going.

My doc wants me to get a colonoscopy. I should have asked him if I could instead get a semicolonoscopy.
