Weekly Poll
Do you support the SLO County Board of Supervisors electing John Peschong as chair over Adam Hill?

Yes, the new conservative majority has a right to flex its muscle.
No, the board broke a nonpartisan tradition of rotating the chair, and Hill was next in line.
It doesn't matter—the liberals are screwed either way.
I've stopped following this circus years ago.

The crystal-clear realization

Shell Beach

By D. Rudolph Georgi

Watching the presidential debate, I was enjoying Romney’s strategy of carefully rehearsed zingers. They were obviously the result of a large group of professionals and were worthy of sound bites by Jessie Jackson or Fox News.

About half hour into the debate, I found myself leaning toward Romney and noticed that his flag pin was much larger than Obama's. This increased my approval until, thanks to my high-def TV, I noticed something on his flag. I got a magnifying glass and was horrified to identify that he had placed, right on Old Glory, a mouse turd!

My outrage knew no bounds. What monster would deface our flag in such a blatant manner? I cannot support such anti-Americanism. No true American should ever vote for any Republican ever.
