i was up early this morning so i could hit the road in order to beat the traffic. the deal is i was reading a new home magazine while in the reading stall downstairs. i’m sorta bummed out about what i read. however, i’m old enough that stuff like that shouldn’t bother me anymore but it does. seems like, well not seems, they are building million dollar homes right next to the bolsa chica wetlands down in huntington beach, ca. that staggers the imagination and senses.
i don’t understand the mentality of the coastal commission here in california. they are supposed to be looking out for every ones best interests. the california coast in particular. apparently they aren’t. just the developers, when the price is right and the hands get properly greased. the pristine wetlands will now have homes and trash and everything else associated with humanity right next door to it.
yes, of course, huntington beach is a far cry from what it was when i was a kid. yes, there was the sewer pipe that drained right into the water at bolsa chica beach. it stuck out from the cliff. thankfully, it disappeared long ago. drifting. the last bit of open space should have been left that way for our feathered friends and the other friends that live under the water. is there nothing left that’s sacred? what gets me is the coastal commission gets their panties all tied up in knots over stuff that’s really odd and or stupid. then they let something like this go down. greed wins out. i guess that’s why i gave up on voting and politics as well. it’s all a crock.
added 12-13-07: i used to vote. i don’t anymore. i’m not even registered. it’s a total waste of time. if you think anyone is actually going to change anything you are delusional and probably insane. lady machill? mayor rudy? or any of the rest of the lot. no, sadly, it’s over, johnny.
