The Muslim religion and practice devaluates women. Muslim women are property. They have no rights and must be subservient to their husbands. Failure to measure up to standards may result in an honor killing. Wives and daughters are in great peril if they become to 'American'.

Oh good grief. We know many of these people lie on their amnesty applications and then commit welfare fraud here. After he has served his sentence he should be deported as the law specifies for immigrants who commit felonies.

Is the $1 million needed by May 19th in addition to the $1 million Carol Lazier pledged--?

I am thinking it must be. I did read that part of that pledged $1 million went to create the OperaAmerica plan to save SD Opera.

This is good news, and I hope that the fundraising efforts will work.

Another thing that works at Nati's? Strong and stiff Puerto Vallerta margarita's! Sipped on the outdoor patio with a sea breeze coming off the beach! Paradise!

Bonnie Dumanis is the worst District Attorney San Diego has ever had. Every move her office has made has been politically driven rather then driven by the interests of public safety. She should immediately drop out of the Mayoral race as well as resign as DA and spare more suffering of innocent victims under her reign.

And yet they continue to spend hundreds of millions of dollars for a downtown airport when there are several area air fields within 20 miles that aren't in the middle of the highest density population in the city. Sheesh.

Dumanis stated AG Harris agreed that she does not have a conflict because she endorsed DeMaio but her opinion shouldn't count because Harris endorsed Dumanis. And we know we can't count on the Feds because US Attorney Duffy has declared a conflict but won't tell us why but she endorsed DeMaio also.

Cheryl has done her bit now it is time to retire. She has failed to honor many of her promises and the glut of condos out east is just one of them. What about the college what happened to that. That automatic call may have been the torpedo that is going to sink Kevin's ship. I want fresh blood running the school districts Cheryl and Kevin may have a plan to put her in charge but that plan isn't going to work.

Kevin O'Neill is a chameleon. Not so long ago he was a strident opponent of Jim Pieri at Mountain West Realty. He helped to gather signatures against Pieri's 'Espanada' project. In the past few years he worked for Pieri moving a group of duplexes from Pieri's H Street property to Roosevelt Street. Now he is firmly in bed with Jim Pieri aiming to develop 97 residential units on Main Street near Hilltop. My point is you never know which Kevin O'Neill you are looking at. Mostly I think it comes down to "just follow the money." His alliance with Cheryl Cox and David Malcolm make him a poor choice for the SUHSD Board, and its desperate need to curb the corruption.

Sounds as tho her honor Cox has had much of the kool aid many public officials drink....what an obnoxious and revealing remark.

Elected officials should remember they are just that...more on the 'elected' part and not expect to be bowed and catered to 'just because'.

Unfortunately, for many, the lure of being 'someone special' is just too much to ignore and we end up with insufferable, pompous, self-absorbed boors.

Looks like we almost were ready to trade one group of thieves in for another. This bunch makes the old bunch look like a freshman team of a bad guys. Heads up came just in time. Have to rethink my vote.


AlexClarke Oct. 22, 2014 @ 7:38 a.m.

No matter what anyone says the voters have reelected these folks over and over so the voters are to blame. I vote for the reason the it gives me the right to complain. If you did not participate in the voting process the do not comment. We get the government we vote for. I am glad that I don't live in Chula Juana.


AlexClarke Oct. 22, 2014 @ 4:02 p.m.

I don't think the feelings were hidden but more of a throwback to the days of "Nasty City" "CJ" "San Yskidrow" and "Venereal Beach". I did live and work in the South Bay for many years and I really do know better.

This is exactly the sort of thing that has society holding lawyers in such low esteem. The plaintiff would not be filing these suits, not any of them, if it were not for that "law" firm. It is a shakedown vehicle, plain and simple, and is being flagrantly abused by Potter and his gang. I feel for those struggling businesses that end up on the receiving end of such lawsuits.

Gail Powell: Joan Kroc was close to Maureen O'Connor and Helen Copley. They had lots of power in San Diego, but didn't throw it around. All three had faults, but could qualify as saints, in my opinion. Best, Don Bauder
