well over at the Montecito Village of the Damned Journal they hope to Restore America's Promise by getting Chris Mitchum in office to replace Lois Capps who was damaged by the Raymond Morua incident...Chris is distancing hisself from the Tea Party but I recall he attending a Teabagger rally in Santa Barbara by the Courthouse...they was protesting something....tons of American flags and culpeppers...false patriots=scoundrels...if you write my name in, I'll serve
then of course there's the constant references to the founding fathers but some of the fathers were crazy..had duels and killed each other...maybe Chris and Lois could duel!!
now I got no prob with Voter ID laws..I got my library card, my driver's license and my KKK membership card to prove I is a proud American!!
well like a I told ya I was riding around Santa Claus Lane and down to Padaro...there's lots of development going down and the old hippie clothing place on Santa Claus Lane was razed..some condos and stores are going up...no more Surf Camp there
and years ago I hated that Solvang-by-the Sea monstrosity built by prominent local builder/contractor Paul Franz who gets all the high--end jobs from the newby rich on Padaro and the Lane...he is homogenizing all the cool old estates over there!
Franz was one of the guys who wanted to get rid of Santa and turn SCL into a Cape Cod themed village...Village of the Damned ...didn't happen thankfully..he operates the construction biz from the Santa Claus Lane building...
and I think Franz bought the old Big Yellow House and painted it a pale sick yellow and now can't get anyone to lease there....he worked on Oprah's estate $50,000,000 renovation

goddammit.... I ride my bike on SCL all the time! what is up with these allegedly boozed up drivers???
