At least Brucie had a good game, so to speak.

There was a time when episodes of The Twilight Zone seemed fantastical. Now real life has caught up, overtaken, and left that show flailing around the wind.

Not if there isn't one.

Chump was in town, he was saying mexicans could climb over some walls, but not the prototypes we're paying 20$ million locally, just to defend. Let me repeat that, we're not paying that to defend the border, we're paying that to protect mock ups, and kids can't even play handball off the damn' things.

It sounded like he was saying "I like hearing good things, not bad things. If people tell me bad things, I fire them".

There used to be a three part restaurant by the airport that was easy to take family and visitors to, but that wasn't good enough for the city, so they bulldozed it, it's like a hole in my heart.

But I'm happy, because the developer naffs found a fault line and can't build the poo they wanted to. Plus they found underground sewer lines from Coronado Island and it's not like the Navy will let them golly with those.

 Their proposal still looks like garbage and rips the entire area apart. They claim they want to make the waterfront look like Barcelona. Good for them, I hope they golly off to barcelona.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

It sounds like they need to disinfect San Diego.

Everything I hear about Trump makes steam come out of my ears.  What an arrogant, stupid, morally bankrupt excuse for a human being.  Of course he has to pay people to have sex with him.  That border wall is one colossal waste of money.  We could repair countless potholes, bridges, and repair all kinds of aging infrastructure with that money. 

I'm glad to hear about the developer losing his shirt on his speculative deal that resulted in the demise of your restaurant.

They showed it being ripped apart on the local news.

The city could use dis infect ant anyway, with the hepatitis outbreak. The solution was shuffling the homeless out of tourist areas. Back in the 90's letterman joked about the scent of piss in the air before Juliani liquidated the homeless. A lot of them ended up in Chula vista, my neighboring city. That is to say, San Diego homeless and the piss smell, not the homeless Juliani liquidated.

I've been in the city, NYC, before and after that, and it's like they're aiming for a concrete soulless disneyland. There were laws against buildings blocking out blocks from the sun before bush. They got around them with corporate parks in the footprint of buildings. Imagine two benches in an L pattern around a sole, sad, stunted tree. Oh, and no one is allowed to sit there.

I don't like this future, I don't like it at all. Please get me a ticket to the reality where Bush was prosecuted and Gore won.

Yeah.  That was a 1961 zoning ordinance that allowed for unlimited height for office buildings as long as there were public amenities such as plazas in front of the buildings.  We got some nice sterile fountains with uncomfortable stone benches.  The real estate is so costly there that you have to be an investment banker to live there now.  The end result is the lower East side is being redeveloped as a disneyland for hipsters.

So a long while ago i posted this, glad to say that they are still going strong and have adapted uring these hard times to take away only ATM.
The cider maker is constantly planting new trees and keeping local land away from developers (although to be honest the land cannot be used for houses, but he does what he can to keep the area green).
And yes I do still go there more than anywhere else, great bunch of people.

So son had his graduation last night via a Zoom call
They were all dressed up (well top half was) with his Chemical Engineering mates.
My beer was hammered and sounded like fun to the early hours.
Pretty sad for them but save is not sorry.
