I went for a little walk to the corner store Sunday Morning, when I got to the corner I pushed the button on the light pole so the light would change.
A car stopped, a bicyclist slowed down but kept going when he saw there was no traffic. What an IDIOT! I thought. He just ran the light like he didn't have a care in the world. Those jerks ruin it for everyone else. I continued on my way across the street into the store where I picked up dish soap and gum. I got my change and left still thinking about the IDIOT on the bicycle. Suddenly I heard someone yelling," You're going to get a ticket walking against the light like that." They were yelling at me. I was standing in the middle of Milpas street. I was so angry and obsessed with the bicyclist I jaywalked against the light at Cacique and Milpas, had a vehicle hit me I would have been splattered road kill all over the intersection in my Sunday clothes. I felt like a total IDIOT. Happy Monday - I hope you all had a great weekend.

I got a kick outta someone axing me what streets are worse State Street or Milpas Street? What are we writing an article? I thought about it for a while and I think San Pasqual is pretty bad too. Of course there are about a hundred otter streets that can get pretty bad from time to time. Someone requested that I write something about the worse streets or neighborHOODS, in Santa Barbara. I felt like I was having an NBD I had to stop. It was freaking me out. Anytime anywhere something could happen. I could not seem to honestly write an article about the worse area in town when the same crimes are going on all over town on a smaller scale. Not only that; offenders live all over town. Not just on the East Side or the West Side or in the shelter, or in the bushes. They live all over town and some of them live in Hope Ranch, Montecito, too confusing for me.

Transient refusing to leave the Dorm at the Cacique Street Shelter, Saturday being the day that the Winter Shelter is now closed. Many people will no longer have a place to call home well at least not until next winter. Please try not to get too mad when you trip over someone sleeping in your yard. Or if you should catch someone doing pee pee or poo poo, they are really helping to fertilize your yard. Instead invite them into your home, feed them, and clothe them.
