Weekly Poll
Did you find the video that SLO city officials made joking about "hot," "shirtless" firefighters offensive?

Yes. It was sexist and demeaning to the brave members of the SLO fire department.
I was more offended by the terrible jokes and bad acting.
It was in poor taste, but the media is hyping it up way too much.
The video was good-natured self-deprecation This is political correctness run amok!

The jail was awfully busy on New Year's Eve

By NICK POWELL

Dozens of people in San Luis Obispo County welcomed 2013 from the cold concrete floors of jail cells and drunk-tanks. According to SLO Sheriff’s spokesperson Tony Cipolla, 31 people were booked into the county jail between the hours of 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 9 a.m. on Jan. 1 for a range of crimes that were “all over the place.”

For a comparison, there were just seven bookings during the same time period on the night of Dec. 17 and the following morning, the last non-holiday Monday/Tuesday.
