What's your strategy for finding a parking space in Downtown SLO?

Patience, patience, and if all else fails, the parking garage.
I know all the great spots, but I ain't telling.
Nowadays I usually shop elsewhere, and only go into the thick of it if I really, really need to.
I just steal the spots that say RESERVED, because, like, I'm going to be super quick so those rules don't apply to me, right?

Something odd has happened

San Luis Obispo

By David Torik

Isn't it odd that the first GMO plants were cultivated in 1996?

Isn't it odd that obesity was declared an epidemic in the United States in the year 1999?

Isn't it odd that when I drove around the Central Coast, all I saw was “vote yes on 37” signs and stickers?

Isn't it odd that when I drove to the Bay Area, all I saw were “yes on 37” signs and stickers?

Isn't it odd that the first thought that entered my mind when I found out that Proposition 37 did not pass, was it’s rigged!

Isn't it odd that there are only three reasons why this would not pass? 1. Propaganda was brainwashing and succeeded. 2. People do not care what they feed their kids. 3. The voting is rigged!

Isn't it odd that all three of those reasons are possible?
