A cabbie’s life, treacherous bike riding, RVs are some people’s heaven, the trolley at night, big rigs near Rosecrans, why we drive freeways, a bus driver’s day, and this skateboarder knows San Diego

UT-TV announcer Roger Hedgecock has interviewed one Trent Seibert, an on-air and in-print reporter for the UT purported Watchdog section. Both Hedgecock and Seibert lament the cost of public art placed by the Port District. But neither gives any perspective. Seibert says the Port's art budget has grown to $1.2 million. All told, the Port has placed 100 pieces of art worth $8 million. But the U-T championed the Petco Park subsidy to the tune of $300 million of taxpayer money. And if a football stadium with a retractable roof is placed downtown, as the U-T so passionately desires, the cost to taxpayers would be at least $600 million, and realistically closer to $800 million.
