  • Those two Daily Press articles reveal two very different Santa Monicas. One shows a green, transit-friendly city and the other is represented by Bill Bauer, in his constant anti-transit, anti-pedestrian, rants.

    Bill Bauer still lives under the delusion that Santa Monica is a suburb like Carpenteria and a quaint, little beach town like Pismo Beach, rather than a sub-regional job center in its own right. Fortunately, his viewpoint is not a majority one as shown by the rejection of Measure T by Santa Monica voters last November.

  • It’s good to see Mixed-Use development in Marina Del Rey, but you better live walking distance to a Big Blue Blus stop if you want transit. Don’t even think of depending on the 108 Metro Bus if you want your sanity in tact.
