Re: “Bus Stop

Veolia provides essential human services to both Israelis and Palestinians. I traveled on the light rail, as it twisted through Arab and Jewish neighborhoods. It was filled with all sorts of people, It was lovely, efficient, affordable. Just what you'd want people-movers to be.

I hope that ultimately, our elected officials make their decision based on whats good for Sonoma county- not on some conflict thousands of miles away.

Re: “Chainsaw Wine

There is NOT one original Oak left in Oakland California. For 75 years we have been destroying our forests instead of growing hemp. How many golf courses and 'vineries' full of pesticides and harmful chemicals do we need?

Re: “Chainsaw Wine

Artesa would clear-cut 1.25 million board-feet of redwood and douglas fir at the site, based on 2004 inventory, according to what the project description in the EIR says would be logged. That sure sounds more like a "forest" than "agriculture", unless you define "forest" as "tree farming"....except that it's a final harvest forever -- converted to monoculture vineyards, not regenerating young forest after clear-cut.

Re: “Rush to War

Interesting article, and some good points. Also interesting that now the liberal left and Sarah Palin essentially agree that the US should not become more involved in this ... "Let Allah sort it out." While I understand the resistance to military action, it is clear that more discussion doesn't get anywhere: we simply have to stop assuming that everyone on the world thinks and reasons the same as we do. Our logic and arguments don't work with many of the leaders in other countries. But military action generally includes innocent civilians (and children) who become "collateral damage", which is little different than their killing by corrupt regimes. Clearly this is not an easy choice, and people will not agree on whatever outcome is finally implemented. And another sad result is that we will never know which option is the path to quickest solution (end to the innocent deaths of people who happen to live in harms way.) Do you believe that the rebels/resistance would massacre their own people and their own children with poison gas? Do you believe that lower level military people in Assad's forces has the ability to launch an attack without Assad's knowledge? Do you believe that anyone else in the free world would assume the responsibility for responding to the situation instead of the United States? If no one responded, what do you think will happen? These are not meant to be flippant questions, but serious long-term thought about options and alternatives. What alternatives are there that would engage ALL the parties in this fiasco?

Re: “Rush to War

Good article, raises questions many of us have. The current "debate" dramatically illustrates how political, inconsistent, and incoherent the debate has become. E.g., Iraq opponents who have shouted the "no WMDs" for years now criticize Assad for his WMDs/sarin. Of course the irony is that CIA reports suggest strongly that Assad got his sarin from Iraq.

The article is correct that there are too many uncertainties to justify the proposed strike. Iraq exposed the fallability of our intelligence. Finally, even if there is a need for action, is it not about time that someone other than the U.S. takes that action?

Re: “Back at It

I had the pleasure of working with Rick at Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. He's professional, fun and knows how to treat an artist! He also understands the finer points of working for a non-profit, marketing and balancing it all with the cost of big name celebrities. Congratulations to the Green Music Center--they are lucky to have Rick!

Re: “Back at It

Looking forward to many nights of great programming at GMC and SSU. Rick is a world-class programmer/booker/marketer whose presence is Sonoma County has been missed since WFC decided they didn't need him. It is wonderful that Rick will now have a world-class facility to present world-class talent at.

Re: “Back at It

Congratulations to Rick, and to the Green Music Center for acquiring this rare gem. Rick's professionalism, dedication, creativity and talent for choosing the right artist for the right venue are insurmountable. I have known Rick for 29 years, he is one of the most giving people I have ever met, truly an inspiration. His work ethic, knowledge of the business and passion for his work aer extraordinary. Without a doubt, the most memorable concerts I have experienced have been Rick's. I am looking forward to many more thanks to him. Bravo!

Re: “Back at It

Congratulations Rick and to the GMC. What a great move for both. I have had the pleasure of working with Rick for over 5 years and love his style. He is dynamic at what he does. His attention to detail is second to none and in the Entertainment Industry it is a necessity. I am excited to see what entertainers come through. Kudos to Rick and great choice for the GMC.

Re: “Honoring Heritage

As a person of mixed heretige, white and native american, I can identify with your intervussies.I was raised to be an all white kid, even though I was kinda "Tan".I always believed I was different.I am now 57, and have finaly realized a commitment to mother earth,as my native american people always have. Having to choose between different cultures, espessialy these days, can mess a person up.
