(yes, I'm a native) in the pre-Sam Yorty years we used to separate the garbage (i.e. veggies and organics) from the trash. There was a special way of lining the small galvanized garbage can with newspaper. This was my job. My parents taught me to line the bottom of our ...
Note to my old friend, Keenan Warner: Do you honestly think anything, absolutely anything, could be worse than the last eight years of a secretive, dishonest (to put it politely), war-mongering, torture-sanctioning, divisive, hateful government the Bush administration has put this country through?

What justification is there for stopping over a thousand cars when there is absolutely no reasonable cause? Just because we have a federal grant, Do we have to spend taxpayer money to cite a single DUI? Some may argue that it takes just one drunk to run over a child, but I'd ask what percentage ...
