...and another chance to fix what was ignored last year.
Woo-hoo. We're heading into election season. Be afraid...very afraid! California is experimenting with an open primary and there are clients for every taste...as long as you're not looking for an experienced, pragmatic, fiscally-savvy, business-friendly realist. Oh, wait, that's right, this is California. What was I thinking?
Petaluma rejoices in the antics of its own, locally-grown, Three (Progressive) Stooges. This trio of lovable loons continually entertains a gullible constituency with fiscally insolvent fantasies of no-growth, anti-big-box, impossible-to-sustain, fair trade, living wage Utopianism.
When the issue of the Keller street garage's plague of flying rats (aka, the dove of peace, squab, pigeons) resurfaced, hizzoner was contacted to comment.

Were the situation in this cartoon to become the case, I'm pretty sure that PETA would provide the perps with free legal support.

So an EIR projects that local air pollution will increase if Friedman's Home Improvement comes to town. However, the scope of the report is so narrow that it doesn't include the drop in pollution that would result from all the cars not driving to Rohnert Park for their home improvement [...]
Petaluma's coffers are so empty that the City has no money to maintain the ambulances. Yet, the City does have money to perpetuate the lawsuit against the proposed Asphalt plant because the location of said plant is on the other side of the Petaluma river from a river-dredge-spoils dumping site. [...]
If you want to make sure that your town stays mired in the past, there's no better place from which to foist your vision of petrification than a seat on the Planning Commission. Apparently such is Petaluma's lot, give the Planning Commission's recent flanking movement on the Deer Creek Development. [...]
So... Last time the turning basin was dredged was after the 2006 rains. However, the project NOT only dragged on for two years, it was NEVER completed, because some meddling bureaucrats complained that dumping the dredge spoils in the place SPECIFICALLY set aside FOR the dumping the Petaluma River dredge [...]
