Re: “Week in Weed

Talk about too little, too late. By this time next year pot will be legalized in California and anyone will be able to buy weed at the corner grocery store. The entire "medical marijuana" industry will cease to exist once anyone can buy it over the counter without a prescription.

Re: “HumCPR and Betty Chinn Pitch Shipping Container Village for Palco Marshers

So, the city can exempt themselves from building codes, fire codes, health codes and somehow be exempt from all legal and financial liability? At the very least, isn't that discrimination against those who have to abide by these codes in the way of selective enforcement? What insurance company in their right mind would cover the city's possible civil liabilities in the event that someone gets hurt due to the city violating its own safety codes? If things like health and safety codes are so meaningless that the city can just blow them off whenever they feel like it, what is the point of even having them (besides making money on fines and permits)? Has the city attorney really thought this thing through?

Re: “On the Heels of Blackouts, AT&T Promises Upgrades

I hate to be the one to point out the obvious, but none of this will do any good unless AT&T leases, buys or constructs additional fiber routes linking us to the outside world. Software and hardware for automatically switching between redundant networks during an outage is a great idea, but unless you actually have those additional networks to switch between the end result is exactly the same. The fact that they do not mention building a single inch of new fiber lines, leasing fiber capacity from another provider or buying some existing network already out there is incredibly telling. All of the hardware/software upgrades in the world are useless if they are not going to add any diversity to their existing network.

Re: “Mall Cops

I don't think that they can cut the brush due to the Coastal Commission requiring an incredibly expensive environmental impact report and all types of permits. It would take years and probably a million dollars to get clearance for something like that. They are a PITA to deal with.

Re: “Anchors Aweigh!

Looked pretty slick. Doesn't have quite the home-towny charm of Channel 3 though. BTW, shouldn't the ABC station in Redding be KRCR, not KCRC?
