No bullshit from this guy. And he kicked ass in Oakland. And he has a strength of character that makes him trustworthy.
AND I totally don't get why some people reject someone who's made a career out of politics from running government. IF THEY'RE SMART THAT MEANS THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
This whole idea of having Joe Schmoe - or even worse rich figures from the corporate world - step in is moronic. California is in the toilet and turning it over to corporate mindset would be a segue toward further disaster... perhaps irredeemable.
And maybe I'm mad as hell and don't want to take it anymore.
I just found out the Scotch 'n Sirloin at the Ventura Harbor is closing. Kinda sad... a lot of memories over the years connected with it. (But), it was never about the food, it wasn't that memorable.
It was the kick-ass setting.
Hopefully it'll reopen with a top-notch chef and updated menu. And a decent wine list. The last time I ordered wine by the glass I sent it back... they'd merely stick the cork back in the bottle to store it. Yuck.
