Volume 43- No. 30
By Frederick Gomez Ever hear the expression when something flagrantly false is uttered about a deceased person that says, “They must be rolling over in their grave”? Well, with that in mind, Albert Einstein – if he had a grave (which he does not) -- would certainly be spinning in it. Einstein was aware of his remarks being scrutinized and, often, misquoted by the world at large. Two years prior to his death he intimated his concerns to a dear friend. “In the past it never occurred to me that every casual remark of mine would be snatched up and recorded. Otherwise I would have crept further into my shell.” (Letter to Carl Seelig, October 25, 1953.) The Paper - 760.747.7119
July 26, 2012
I first discovered Albert Einstein in library books at the tender age of nine. An Einstein buff at age nine made me, somewhat, a social pariah, that is, my contemporaries were busy playing computer games and thought of my readings as more than a bit strange. In short, I was not the most popular kid among my peers, but, my sense of humor eased any disassociation from friends, “I’m so popular that everybody hates me,” was a comical contradiction I used and which often evoked laughter from both adults as well as from my fairweather companions. But I was not about to jettison my intrigue with history’s greatest and most famous scientist. Due to my reading material, my vocabulary was a bit over-sized for a kid. Not
by design, but out of necessity I had to constantly look up words in the lexicon, er, sorry, I mean, the dictionary, in order to understand what the hell any Einstein biographer might be gibbering about. But I learned early on not to always correct my elders, in or out of the classroom, in regards to the German-born scientist. However, whenever I would hear a tidbit of information that was grossly inaccurate, I would try to rectify it with both aplomb and diplomacy. My playground consisted of Einstein archival material, courtesy of public libraries, and university scholars, whom I spoke with at great length, via our family telephone. Yes, I was a very strange, enchanted boy. Fast forward.
week I was driving home when I heard one of the nation’s most popular politically-conservative radio show hosts begin to talk about Albert Einstein. This particular talk show personality would, occasionally, read out of the Christian Old Testament (also known as the Jewish Torah). Then, he would supply listeners with ample commentary regarding this country’s deterioration of family values, principles, mores, and so on. In his attempts to buttress his argument, on this particular day, he spoke of how even the great Albert Einstein believed in God. The God of the Old Testament. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Normally, this particular individual is well-versed on his subject matter. And he

Page 2 - July 26, 2012 ‘The Real Albert Einstein’ Cont. from Page 1 normally delves in politics. But, on this occasion, I could scarcely believe my ears. I thought this issue had long been put to rest. It has not. Then, a short time later, a minister asked me if it was true that Albert Einstein said, “I want to know God’s thoughts, the rest are details.” (My research clearly shows this is, indeed, an accurate quote, as recorded by E. Salaman in “A Talk with Einstein,” Listener 54, 1955.) Anyway, my minister-friend wished to incorporate this majestic statement from Einstein into his sermon. A bit shaken, I delicately assured the pastor that, yes, Einstein uttered those words – more than once – but, an explanation was in order. The explanation deflated the well-intentioned Christian and he, wisely, elected to excise the Einstein remark from his Sunday sermon. Today, it has become abundantly clear that Einstein quotes – if not altogether false – are, sometimes, grossly misrepresented in their meaning. Back in his day, was Einstein

offended by such misrepresentations? The answer is a resounding ‘yes!’ His words did not pull any punches, “It was of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions; a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly.” (Albert Einstein, New Glimpses From His Archives, 1981. Hoffman & Dukas.) It should be added, however, that the misrepresentations were predicated on Einstein’s frequent references to God, and his use of the word ‘religious.’ But the great scientist tried to explain away this insidious mistake, “If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.” (Ibid, 1981.) Einstein’s use of the word ‘god’ was purely a metaphorical one. Nothing more. “I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings.” (New Glimpses "Honey Don't Go (Feed the cat first)" "She Wants Me Back (In Jail)" "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover (Just pick one and go already)" (Paul Simon threatened to sue me over this one.)

A Beautifully Touching Story The bishop decided that he would conduct the interviews personally and went up into the belfry to begin the screening process. After observing several applicants demonstrate their skills, he had decided to call it a day. Just then, an armless man approached him and announced that he was there to apply for the bell ringer's job. The bishop
From His Archives, Ibid.) Famed scientist, Niels Bohr, who pioneered quantum mechanics, once became overly angry at Einstein’s incessant usage of God in explaining his theoretical view of the universe, such as, “God does not play dice with the universe.” In mid-discussion with Einstein, an exasperated Bohr once castigated Einstein when Bohr suddenly blurted out, “Stop telling God what to do!” Bohr’s remark has since become a classic refutation, as well as a humble antithetical to Einstein’s supreme ego in regards to his scientific viewpoints. Einstein had a towering scientific ego, perhaps, even an arrogant one. His God remark in 1919 startled many, both within and outside the scientific world. When the 1919 solar eclipse ostensibly proved Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity (Einstein correctly calculated the value of light bending around the sun), it made world headlines. When Einstein was asked what his reaction would have been if his general relativity had not been confirmed by the solar eclipse’s scientific findings, Einstein remarked,
“Then I would feel sorry for the dear Lord. The theory is correct anyway.” (Subtle Is the Lord, by Abraham Pais, Oxford Univ. Press 1982). On the other side of the coin, perhaps Einstein’s supreme confidence echo’s what Leonardo da Vinci uttered, centuries before, “It is through wisdom that I know my worth, not vanity.” It is noteworthy to point out that Einstein was so selfassured, on a variety of fronts, that in his divorce from his first wife (the former Mileva Maric), he recorded as part of his settlement, an agreement to give her his Nobel Prize money, which he anticipated he would eventually win! And he did, a few years later. Was Einstein’s view of the Christian God a naïve one? Whether we agree or not with Einstein’s views on the JudeoChristian Godhead, Einstein’s stance on the socalled Prime Mover was not haphazardly arrived at. As in all things, Einstein would, habitually, come to his sum‘The Real Albert Einstein’ Cont. on Page 3

'You have no arms!'
The following day, despite the sadness that weighed heavily on his heart due to the unfortunate death of the armless bell ringer, the bishop continued his interviews for the bell ringer of Notre Dame.
'No matter,' said the man. 'Observe !' And he began striking the bells with his face, producing a beautiful melody on the carillon. The bishop listened in astonishment; convinced he had finally found a replacement for Quasimodo. But suddenly, as he rushed forward to strike the bell, the armless man tripped and plunged headlong out of the belfry window to his death in the street below. The stunned bishop rushed down two hundred and ninety five church steps, when he reached the street, a crowd had gathered around the fallen figure, drawn by the beautiful music they had heard only moments before.
The first man to approach him said, 'Your Excellency, I am the brother of the poor armless wretch that fell to his death from this very belfry yesterday. I pray that you honor his life by allowing me to replace him in this duty.' The bishop agreed to give the man an audition, and, as the armless man's brother stooped to pick up a mallet to strike the first bell, he groaned, clutched at his chest, twirled around, and died on the spot. Two monks, hearing the bishop's cries of grief at this second tragedy, rushed up the stairs to his side.
As they silently parted to let the bishop through, one of them asked,
'What has happened ? Who is this man ?' the first monk asked breathlessly.
'Bishop, who was this man?'
'I don't know his name,' sighed the distraught bishop, 'but....' (. . . Wait for it ....)

mations with careful and precise reasoning, at least from his bank of cognition. He was not naïve in the context that he only read scientific books. Quite the contrary, Einstein was a voracious, and eclectic, bibliophile.
Einstein passed away at age 76 at Princeton Hospital, on Monday, April 18, 1955. His death was ascribed to an aneurysm, an enlargement of the abdominal artery filled with blood, which burst. He bled to death internally. Did Einstein have any final words? Yes, he most certainly did. Before he ied in his sleep, Einstein uttered his last words to his attending nurse. Unfortunately, his final words were in his native German, which the nurse was unable to comprehend.
It is a matter of record that Einstein read many non-scientific books, including the Bible. A fact almost unknown to most is that Einstein had a phalanx of favorite authors and books, all non-scientific, such as: Miguel de Cervantes’ “Don Quixote,” as well as Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s “Brothers Karamazov,” to name just two examples. After the death of Israel’s first president, Chaim Weizmann, in November of 1952, Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, officially offered the famed scientist the post of President of Israel. Though Einstein declined the honor, the official offering, in and of itself, solidified in many minds that the great scientist ‘obviously’ believed in the Jewish God, the Christian God of the Old Testament. Such residual thinking is still with us today, as has been manifest in the print media, radio, television, as well as with some members of our clergy. Even in our 2012 world, many religious theists still cite Einstein as one of them. And they do so most emphatically, buzzing around the world’s computer internet, referring to him as a “smart scientist.” In this regard, they refer to Einstein as a link between spiritual and scientific thinking, thus attempting to merge the two factions in complementary fashion, as one theist website explains: “Einstein’s belief in God rebuts the idea that science conflicts with religion or that science is atheistic.” Einstein, today, would be furious. In a letter to philosopher, Eric Gutkind, on January 3, 1954, Einstein fired an invective cannonball, “The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honourable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter
We all know about the removal of his brain for study, his schizophrenic son, and his subsequent cremation. What did not die with Einstein were the countless myths, which prevail to this very day. Einstein believed that education should be made exhilarating, imaginative, and fun. He was fond of saying, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” So, in the spirit of what Einstein advocated, I have created a fun Einstein quiz; portions of which may explode some popular Einstein myths along the way. Such a quiz may show just how much we really know, or do not know, of the real Albert Einstein. Please take the quiz with an open mind and, regardless of your score, just have fun! TRUE OR FALSE: Einstein did not learn to speak until the age of three. This is, arguably, the most popular of all Albert Einstein myths. So prevalent is this misconception that it is still omnipresent on the worldwide web, today! As such, it is, perhaps, the most difficult of Einstein myths to dismiss, primarily because it is the one most often repeated. As war propagandists long learned, if you tell a lie often enough, it becomes fact in the minds of many. Hitler was very much aware that they are not the small lies that gain credence, they are the big ones! This one is a big myth. Some sources on the worldwide web, as well as in some books, go so far as to assert that Einstein did not begin speaking till the age of five! The most respected and quali-
fied Einstein biographers, as well as the archival notes and diary information by Einstein’s sister, Maja, all clearly tell the truth. While Einstein may have begun “babbling” at a much younger age, he is said – by qualified sources – to have commenced speaking after the age of two (which is, admittedly, still below the norm). According to his younger sister, Maja, “He had such difficulty with language that those around him feared he would never learn.” In short, he was, with some concern, suspected of being, possibly, retarded. Though he was a late bloomer, Einstein was, definitely, speaking before the age of three. And most certainly before the age of five! Einstein’s lack of verbosity until after the age of two may be the root of this popular myth. Nevertheless, the correct answer to this first query is ‘false.’ EINSTEIN WON THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR: A. Special Theory of Relativity. B. General Theory of Relativity. C. Photoelectric Effect. D. Theory of Time Travel This is a most popular misconception, so don’t feel bad if you miss this one, most people do – including teachers! Most select either A or B, as these two theories were historical landmarks in science and, by far, the most popular in the public’s mind, and in school text books. But, if you selected C above, you truly deserve a pat on the back! Albert Einstein was given the 1921 Nobel Prize in physics for his discovery of the law of photoelectric relativity. EINSTEIN INVENTED: A. New comfort slippers. B. Pipe smoking holder. C. Unique refrigerator. D. New violin case. You better sit down. Because, this could be the biggest shocker of all, so if you got this one right, well, you’re a real genius, yourself. This is a very, very little known fact about the great scientist, but a noteworthy one, nevertheless. Just when most of the world thought they knew some of the most popular, mainstream facts about Einstein – well, this catches 99% of them off guard! Correct answer above is C. Over two decades after writing his Special
Theory of Relativity, the great scientist invented a refrigerator that operated on alcohol gas. Paper trail shows it was even patented in 1926 but never made its way to final production. Why? Because innovative technology at the time rendered Einstein’s refrigerator unnecessary. The motive for Einstein trying to invent his refrigerator was after he read about a family that was poisoned from a sulphur dioxideemitting refrigerator. EINSTEIN WAS MARRIED TO HIS: A First cousin. B Second cousin. C Niece. D Both A and B. This is a common question and, often, a muddled one. But, it you selected D above, you are right! Though most primary Einstein sources are partially correct in stating that he married his first cousin, Elsa Lowenthal, genealogical experts are more ‘comprehensively correct’ in stating that Elsa and Albert were first cousins maternally, and second cousin, paternally. Propinquity experts explain the first-and-second cousin scenario thusly: Elsa’s and Albert’s mothers were sisters, which made Elsa and Albert first cousins; however, both their respective fathers were first cousins, thus making both Elsa and Albert second cousins, on their paternal side. Simply phrased: second cousins are the children of first cousins. On a separate note, it is interesting to point out that Elsa Einstein (her actual birth surname) took the last name of her first huband, Max Lowenthal, becoming Elsa Lowenthal. Upon marrying her cousin, Albert Einstein, in 1919, she reverted to his, as well as her own, original surname of Einstein. She was a German cousin and second wife of Albert Einstein. WHICH EINSTEIN STATEMENT IS TRUE? A He had a daughter born out of wedlock. B He visited San Diego. C He never drank liquor. D He spoke 5 languages. If you selected A, you are correct. Scholars only recently discovered that Albert Einstein had a daughter, born out of wedlock.

Page 4 - July 26, 2012 Escondido Man Kidnaps Girlfriend On Thursday, July 19th, at approximately 12:54 PM, the Escondido Police Communications Division received an emergency call from a female reporting a kidnapping that had just occurred. Officers responded to the area of South Centre City Parkway and Town Center Avenue and met with the woman. The woman stated that her son, Emmanuel Sedano, 29years-old of Escondido, had come to her residence earlier in the day and made threats against her and Emmanuel’s girlfriend. He left the house after a verbal dispute. Emmanuel Sedano returned several hours later and created another disturbance. This time, Sedano choked his mother and forced both his mother and girlfriend into a vehicle. He made his mother drive. As the trio was traveling north on Centre City
Local News Parkway, Sedano’s mother stalled the vehicle and fled the area. Sedano jumped into the driver’s seat and drove away with his girlfriend.
Sedano, an Escondido parolee was was taken into custody just after 6:30 p.m. that same day (Thursday), and his girlfriend was found unharmed, more than five hours later. As police reconstructed the event, Sedano had forced his mother and girl friend into a Nissan Pathfinder, according to police spokesman, Lt. Chris Wynn. Wynn said. Sedano made his mother drive the SUV. After escaping from the SUV his mother called police, who met up with her near Town Center fine human being and good friend. ••••• Went to a wedding Saturday.

After police chased him for several minutes, Sedano stopped the SUV at Seventh Avenue and Hickory Street, were he gave up without further incident, the lieutenant said. His girlfriend was still with him in the car. Sedano, 29, was booked into the Vista jail, where he was being held on multiple charges, including kidnapping, burglary, battery and evading police, according to the Sheriff's Department jail website. He was being held on $100,000 bail. He was scheduled for arraignment on Monday.

I speak halfway decent 'gringo Spanish' so was only able to understand about 3040% of the words . . . but it was still beautiful. When it came to the point where they exchanged their vows, damned if my eyes didn't fill with tears. That had never happened before. I must be getting old and sentimental.
Decided to let others continue saving the world. I still see some of the "kids" from time to time . . . usually, they'll walk up to me, greet me with . . . "Hi, Mr. Davis. I'm Humberto. Remember me? I'd like you to meet my wife and two kids." I look at Evelyn, she looks at me, and we both think at the same time, "we did something right!" These kids have all turned out just fine and have made Evelyn and me very proud.

The forming of the organization came about because of two fatal drive-by shootings. I remember I got upset at the first youth that was killed . . but about two weeks later little five year old Ricky Cardenas was also killed. It was a drive-by shooting and the bullet missed its intended target and hit and killed the little boy. That's when I really got angry and said, "someone has to do something about this." So, I did.
You're not supposed to have favorites when dealing with youth associations, but the Morales family was one of my two favorite families. Loved all the kids . . . but these two families were special. Very proud of them. Evelyn and I retired from Los Cablleros after six years.

hearts went away together for a romantic tryst at Lake Como, Italy, in 1901. Months later, Maric found herself to be pregnant. Einstein was in a dilemma. He had no monetary resources to support a wife and child, and yet, his out-of-wedlock child would most certainly be ridiculed and ostracized by segments of society. So as not to tarnish Einstein’s reputation – as well as her own – Maric returned to her family and secretly gave birth to a baby girl, whom she name Lieserl. Both Maric and Einstein kept their secret these many, long years. Even Einstein archives reveal little about their little daughter, Lieserl. There are just a few brief references of Lieserl in Einstein’s personal letters, with the last entry made on September of 1903. It is a most sad saga, with the fate of the baby girl uncertain. Some conjecture that their daughter, Lieserl, died early Other from scarlet fever. sources contend that she may have been given up for adoption. No one knows for sure. Einstein revisionists believe it was a heartless and expedient
decision, by both Einstein and Maric, to forsake the baby girl in such a manner (leaving her only with her mother). Contention being, if the parents chose not to wed, they should have, at least, intended on being together – in good faith – to afford the infant, Lieserl, a feeling of parenthood. WHICH EINSTEIN STATEMENT IS TRUE? A Einstein met Hitler. B Einstein visited Disneyland. C Einstein was NAACP member. D Einstein was not Jewish. This one may, or may not, surprise you. Most know of Einstein’s pacifist stance on worldwide issues. So, if you selected C above, well, you are at the top of your game. Einstein was a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) while at Princeton and actively campaigned for African American civil rights.

‘The Real Albert Einstein’ Cont. from Page 5 called America’s racism, “The worst disease.” Einstein proved to be history’s first scientist to attain status as a ‘pop’ icon. His disheveled hair and rebellious nature made him, to this day, the most famous and popular scientist in world history. That he was the greatest scientist of the twentieth century is beyond dispute. Some academicians proclaim him the greatest that ever lived. Scholars of science can scarcely believe how he – or anyone – could possibly have conceived of his E=MC2 equation (energy equals mass times a constant (speed of light) squared). An imagining so stupendous as to be referred to as the single, greatest thought in all of humankind. Even famed theoretical physicist, Richard Feyman, recipient of the Nobel Prize in physics, and who assisted in the development of the atomic bomb, said of Einstein’s celebrated equation, “I still can’t see how he ever thought of it.” Mighty powerful words from Feyman, who, in a worldwide

Thomas Edison, but, Albert Einstein – the bespectacled absent-minded professor in baggy pants and wild wooly hair -- well, his name has become synonymous with the word ‘genius.’
One need not comprehend Einstein’s formulas and abstract calculations to be awestruck. It is enough to know that his influence, like Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, et al, reverberated beyond science, influencing our world as never before. Changing our text books, our lives, and our worldly outlook, forever. It is amusing that, initially, many stellar scientists, themselves, did not fully grasp Einstein’s relativity in its quintessential and purest form. Amusing in that when a reporter once asked the illustrious British astrophysicist, Sir Arthur Eddington, if it were true that only three people in the world truly understood relativity, the witty Eddington, after a short pause, replied, “Hmm, I’m trying to think who the third person is.” Most school children may not recognize photos of Socrates, Shakespeare, Freud, or

Not so here mean ol’ husband, Tim. He spilled the beans to folks on Facebook. I, on the other paw, intend to keep Marie’s age a secret.

President Theodore Roosevelt 'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

Page 10 - July 26, 2012 ‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 Oceanside Police Department, which typically responds to calls off the coast stretching from Mission Bay to the south and Dana Point to the north, the powerful vessel fills a niche. The new boat will move twice as fast, perform more comfortably in bad weather and work more efficiently in the dark because of the closed cabin and infrared. Thanks to a $737,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as part of Operation Stonegarden, which aims to improve border security and enhance cooperation between local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, the department was able to acquire the boat. Of the total grant, about $460,000 was set aside to buy the boat, which police officials said arrived in January, with thousands more allocated for items like foul weather gear, encrypted radios, searchlights, overtime enforcement, fuel and maintenance. The new boat doesn’t replace the old ones, which are still .. Two of the Harbor Unit’s boats are about 20 years old, and are capable of pumping saltwater out of a hose to fight fires. The new boat doesn’t have a hose. The older watercraft also are more useful in the surf but not nearly as fast. Oceanside’s Harbor Unit recently took the boat on a call offshore of the power plant in Carlsbad where a man had been stung by a poisonous sculpin fish. “Within a couple minutes (we were able to) get to where the patient was and within a few minutes get him back to the patrol dock and get him medical aid,” according to police officials. The old boats run about 25 knots, or 29 mph, whereas the 900 horsepower watercraft gets up to 45 knots, roughly 52 mph. As of Monday, the vessel had yet to intercept human or drug smugglers, but had uncovered several bales of marijuana in its months of operation.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Last week I announced that the City of San Diego expects to significantly reduce landfill operation costs, following the city’s most recent round of managed competition. The winning proposal, submitted by the city’s employees, will save at least $2.7 million annually and $14.4 million over the next five years. By reducing equipment and position costs, city employees won their bid to continue all landfill, weigh-in facility and green operations at the Miramar Landfill, as well as monitoring of the city’s
10 closed landfills, including two burn sites. This is the fourth city function that has gone out to bid through managed competition. Combined with $1 million in savings from publishing services, $4.2 million from fleet maintenance and $560,000 from street sweeping, managed competition is now saving the city $8.4 million annually. I also announced that the next city service to go through the process will be trash collection. I believe trash collection could also be done more efficiently and at a substantial cost savings to taxpayers, and I look forward to seeing the proposals.

Page 12 - July 26, 2012 practice represent a violation of equal treatment under the law? Is it an anachronism culled from the dustbin of outmoded chivalry or could it be that modern toilet seat protocol actually has a rational basis? I decided to find out.
Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Men, No More Toilet Seat Guilt! Occasionally some new finding rises to a level of importance far above day-to-day computer issues. Today we discuss one of them.
I Googled and found that a UC Berkley researcher named Iva Haddit had done extensive work on toilet seat etiquette for a federal grant in 2011. The findings were never published. I “Facebooked” Iva and found him working as a tutor for a nearby charter school. He agreed to discuss his research findings with me.
As a courtesy men are expected to put the toilet seat down when they finish doing their stand-up routine in order to accommodate the possibility that the next user might be a woman who will wish to use the facility in the seated position. Do women offer the same courtesy by elevating the seat to accommodate the possibility that the next user is male? Not a chance.
Apparently NOW (National Association for Women) asked the Obama administration for a law making failure to lower a toilet seat a federal crime punishable by fines and imprisonment. NOW is a powerful contributor to DNC coffers so the President quickly arranged research grants to support NOW’s legislative request. Naturally Obama chose UC Berkeley to conduct the study. As the junior research associate in the Environmental and Cultural Sensitivity Dept, Iva Haddit got the job.
Today women are regarded as the complete equal of men. Does this
I asked Iva about the results of his research.
Let’s Reduce High School Dropout Rates
classes, but classes in drafting, metal and wood shop, agriculture, or office management work. Those students made important contributions to the school and not only graduated, but were able to get jobs and become successful citizens.
Among California’s challenges, there are an enormous number of students who drop out of high school. In some of California’s largest school districts the percentage approaches 50%! These drop outs typically can’t read well, do basic arithmetic, or get jobs. They are more likely to be on welfare, and many are unable to contribute to our state’s future. I have proposed two actions to help solve this problem: 1. Each student must read reasonably well, including those who struggle with English; and 2. Bring back vocational education. When I went to Escondido High School, there were many choices for students. They could take not just the standby auto shop
Let’s adopt this common-sense approach to keeping kids in school, making their lives better, and reducing the possible costs to California of their leaving school early with no skills. Senator Mark Wyland represents the people of the 38th Senate District, which includes San Diego (Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Valley) and Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, San Marcos, Escondido, Vista the south Orange County cities of San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.
Here is what he told me. “The raising and lowering toilet seats requires energy. Energy conservation is “green” and always an important legislative consideration, so I ran the numbers. I found that if men are required to lower the seat after each use instead of leaving it the upright position it would result in 34.6% increase in toilet seat position changes simply because 50% of the time the next user would be a man and would have to raise the seat. That would result in a completely unnecessary round trip for the toilet seat.” “Wow,” I said, “Wasting energy certainly is not “green.” “Exactly, and then there is the hygiene factor. 34.6% more touches mean more bacterial and virus transfers from the seat to the hands. It’s a serious health problem.” “So the study recommended against enacting a toilet seat law?” I asked.
Once Again, Del Mar Proves its Worth
Opening day at the world famous Del Mar race track surpassed all expectations with a record breaking crowd of 47,339, a fabulous spectacle of thoroughbred racing, star sightings, big hats plus a healthy boost to California economy. Hall of Fame horse trainer Bob Baffert was quoted as saying, “It goes to show that racing is alive and well in California." As an avid horseman and racing fan, I believe that the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club represents what is truly great about the sport. Del Mar is not only one of a handful of race tracks left in
“Not entirely, I recommended the law penalize men who do put the toilet seat down after use, it’s irrational, wasteful and unhygienic.” “So what happened to the study and your recommendations”? Iva sighed. “They buried the study and fired me. But it got me started on researching the negative impact of chivalry on present day society. For example the “women and children first” rule on the Titanic wiped out a generation of inventors and entrepreneurs to save a bunch of airhead trophy wives and hundreds of wealthy spoiled brats.” “How does your wife feel about your research, Iva?” I asked. “I don’t know,” he shrugged, “She got up to go to the bathroom one night, I heard a splash and a scream and the next morning she was gone.”
California but is also one of the few in the country that remain profitable. During my tenure in Legislature I have worked to promote racing in our state and increase the viability of the industry. Despite the success of Del Mar, there was legislation calling for the sale of the fairgrounds. Not only would that be a colossal mistake, it would take away a major economic engine in our region and remove an event that has become uniquely San Diego along with the estimated $90 million economic boost to our region. For these reason, I will continue to support this regional treasure where the surf meets the turf.

Letters to the Editor The Michael Yon Dispatches - “A War Correspondent’s Journal” 7/12/2012 edition Dear Editor: Thank you for your coverage of the two wars we are in. It was interesting and informative. Perhaps, if you don't mind my suggesting this, the subject of a future edition could be that the two wars were unnecessary. In the case of Afghanistan, that could have been a police action with UN forces seeking out the masterminds of 9/11. Iraq, in my view, is particularly frustrating. We have gained zilch in all our years there. The major tribes have been warring for many years. When we finally pull out of
As a war correspondent you must have been aware of the US Army's deceit and abhorred its stupid and gruesome body count. War, I believe, is never the answer. Always we find "good reasons" to slaughter each other. I think we should stay home and take care of our myriad problems. Name withheld by request. Escondido, CA. Also on the Michael Yon Dispatches . . . Great as far as it went but it is only a piece of the problem. The real problem isn't Army bureaucracy. This isn't a single incident of cover up like the Tillman incident. A fish stinks from the head. The big story is the pervasive war on our military forces waged by a commander in chief who despises the military and thinks it more important to appease the leftist international community than to protect American lives. Obama's insane "rules of engagement" are murdering our soldiers and causing our military to fight battles with one hand tied behind their backs. Military leaders dare not speak out against the commander and chief. Sickening. Name withheld by request. San Marcos, CA.

People who are on the edge may see the fake violence as being "normal" and perpetrate that violence. Note that the shooter in Aurora had Joker orange hair. Maybe our priorities are out of wack. I think violence is more harmful for young people to see than anything else.
It desensitizes our young people to violence. Shame on Hollywood for their violent movies, and to the people who make it profitable, namely those who buy tickets to see those movies. Isn't it ironic that the shooting began when there was shooting in the movie? When we boycott violent movies, Hollywood will stop making them. /s/Donna Davis Escondido, CA. The Second Amendment I have no quarrel with the second amendment to our Constitution. That’s the one that I’m told “guarantees our right as individual citizens to bear arms”. However, I do have some questions as to the amendments precise meaning. For example: As passed by the Congress: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. Perhaps I’m naïve, but it would seem that a well-organized militia might in this day and time be taken to mean the California National Guard. In spite of the National Rifle Association’s perceptions to the contrary, I see no language suggesting I might individually prepare for personal warfare. Even so, I accept the 2nd amendment’s inferred right for me to “bear arms.” The presumption being that I may purchase, keep and, under appropriate conditions, actually use a firearm. All that being said, my concerns with the 2nd amendment is in the degree to which this sacrosanct liberty is applied to the extremes of supposedly conferring upon an individual the right to possess military weaponry provably capable of conducting warfare against our own citizenry. My concern is not based in some fearful fantasy, but rather is based in the fact that several times a year
heinous slaughter with guns does indeed take place in America, Land of the Free. However, apparently not “free” from this form of depravation. “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people” is a popular claim by gun manufacturers and parroted by gun owners associations. However, “People with guns kill people” and they do it quite often and not very often in the act of protecting life & limb or their property. Thus, an enlightened citizenry wishing to avail themselves of rights conferred under the second amendment should at least limit gun ownership to those for which they have some reasonable expectation of use. If you just have to have a gun I approve of appropriate firearms if to shoot skeet or at targets for sport, or to hunt or, with these same guns if needed, to possibly protect yourself during a home invasion. Gun ownership beyond those limits, is in my opinion, insane to permit. I willingly place my personal safety in the hands of qualified law enforcement personnel. That’s a big statement for a former Marine. /s/Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.

During these serious and trying times, people of all faiths should remember these four great religious truths: 1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God’s chosen people. 2. Jews do not recognize Christ as the Messiah. 3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world. 4. Mormons do not recognize each other at Mesquite, Las Vegas, Hooters, or the Liquor Store. Lookin’ Good! A 54 year old woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital.

path of the ambulance?" God replied: "Dang! I didn't recognize you!” This is True! Really! An American went to India on business. While there, he met many people. In fact he met a man who was a native from the back country of India. This new friend offered to take him to his remote village, which he accepted. When they arrived the men of the village (more than 500) were dancing around in a circle. As the dance went on, the men turned to running around in the circle. Amazing! Then even more amazing, the American businessman noticed that all the bare chested men did not have any nipples on their chests. He really didn’t understand what was going on in the dance, so he asked his new friend what it was all about. His new friend responded.. “ "Don’t you know.... this is the Indian Nipple less 500.” ••••• ABBY ADMITTED SHE WAS AT A LOSS TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING:
God said, "No, you have another 43 years, 2 months, and 8 days to live."
Dear Abby, I was married to Bill for three months and I didn't know he drank until one night he came home sober.
Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital face-lift, liposucand have a tion, breast implants, and a tummy tuck.
Dear Abby, My mother is mean and short tempered I think she is going through mental pause.
She even had someone come in and change her hair color and brighten her teeth! Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well make the most of it.
Dear Abby, You told some woman whose husband had lost all interest in sex to send him to a doctor. Well, my husband lost all interest in sex and he is a doctor. Now what do I do?
After her last operation, she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance.
Dear Abby, A couple of women moved in across the hall from me. One is a middle-aged gym teacher and the other is a social worker in her mid twenties. These two women go everywhere together and I've never seen a man go into or leave their apartment. Do you think they could be Lebanese?
Arriving in front of God, she demanded, "I thought you said I had another 43 years? Why didn't you pull me from out of the
