We visited historic Jerome, AZ, where everything is reputed to be haunted, even the hamburger joint.
And we hit the trails to enjoy the local beauty of Sedona, AZ.
And didn't neglect man-made pleasures either. Famous Pizza had great pizza and craft beer on tap including quite a few San Diego offerings.
In the meantime other San Diegans kept up the good work on keeping tabs on our state and local government.
- Dean posted his latest entry in the long running saga of the California high speed rail debacle. Was Judge Kenney's ruling that funding must halt and that the High-Speed Rail Authority had abused its discretion a death blow? Read and judge for yourself. The U-T has the full story.
- Felipe Monroig, president of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association, has done a public service by pointing out that the so-called linkage fee revenue isn't spent on affordable housing for the working poor, as the council debate would lead you to believe. The Voice of San Diego's in depth analysis of the issue is also a public service. Bottom line, most of the money goes to the homeless, not affordable housing for the working poor.
- The U-T reports that San Diego home prices increases are slowing. This is good news. All of the conditions that caused the housing bubble and subsequent collapse in 2008 are still present. Artificially high housing prices are not healthy for the economy.
- College Insurrection reports on how the ACA is affecting students at SDSU, bottom line:
unintended consequences not making health care more affordable.
