maryrose is right about CSU; it's always been a very diverse campus and definitely not all black. It used to look like nondescript garbage as a campus (think Depaul) but they've recently spruced the place up quite a bit and it looks presentable to a prospective student (the recruiting for the basketball team must have been brutal in the past unless you were a crack-addict lunatic like Kevin Mackey). My fellow NEOer is also correct on the value of the education you can receive there. I got my MBA at Case because I could stick the third rate utility with the bill but if had come out of my pocket, I'd have been very happy with CSU.

I live in a small town in Idaho where you have to bring your recyclables yourself to the community bins, and people really do do it religiously. Even during snowstorms you'll see one car after another pull into the lot to drop their recyclable trash off. The city counsel proposed adding $5 per month to the regular trash collection "fee" so that the city would collect the recyclables instead, but the voters here said, no thanks, we're managing to do it just fine on our own and we're taxed enough already.

I'd bet a lot of money that Obama had no idea why his "revenge" comment was so inappropriate. His legacy should be that of the "Revenge President" an an example of what America will never accept again.

FEMS's out of water--Non until Monday; long lines to get gas; looting; Bloomberg wouldn't let national guard into Brooklyn caused they were armed.
Whole towns are wiped out in the Midwest by tornados and within days people are begging the Lutheran Ladies Aid societies to stop with the food and clothing already--no bothering about FEMA, no threats of cannibalism, nothing..just everybody helping everyone else and working together. Lights go out for a day in progressiveland and they are looting, killing and starving. Curious.

What's happening in NJ? Most updates have been CT and NYC.

The TriC campus is the urban one.

That's the Tri-C metro campus which is located close to some housing projects. There are East and West campuses also located in Warrensville (I think; it may be located on a piece of land that the city used to have their workhouse located on) and Parma.

cc,

Most recycling is done mechanically and automatically. But I can bet that in heavily democratic urban areas those are patronage jobs at the local sanitary district (which if memory serves me correctly) are usually the most political of all agencies. Why is it that the guys hanging off the side of garbage trucks are usually of a certain tan?

When you look at why people of a certain tan vote democrat it has nothing to do with they believe in their hearts and minds but that they are recipients of patronage and old ward/precinct politics. This is why major urban cities are run by Dems and show the effect of that administration in depression era photos taken in 2012.

Then in Placer County, recycling should return a revenue neutral cost or privatize it:)

Is the water coming out of the tap in the worst hit places not potable? Because people won't be able to go all the way to Monday without water--they'll drink what they can find and if it's contaminated, there will be disease on top of everything else.

JiB,

Agreed! It is one of those things that I have always meant to look into, but I never seem to find the time. I'm not firend of the earth, it seems!

Visiting Idaho is on my bucket list along with Montana and Oregon. I like the idea of recycling your own stuff and taking it to a site. Currently Rocky River is flirting with the idea of outsourcing our plastic to Republic Recycling. We are fighting that idea at present because of the extra tax.

Drudge highlighting report that FEMA's run out of bottled water and didn't order more from private distributors until today with no delivery before Monday.

rse

ccal-I do not know what they do with recyclables now but for years they would pick it up separately curbside and then combine offsite to go into the same dumpsite.

People got to feel good. Costs were increased. No helpful enviro impact in reality.

But I will not let my kids litter and always made them clean up theirs and everyone else's fireworks on the beach.

And I do hate it when the to be recyled papers become windborne and go all over the neighborhood.

Love the north part of Idaho. Went Elk hunting in the Lochsau River valley near Salmon then drove down to White Bird (?). Is it the town you come down to via a twisting set of cutbacks?

"*FEMA's out of water--None until Monday"

There are things that are hard to solve, but I can't believe this is one of them. I'd be willing to bet that in some warehouse there is a bunch of water. I see that Bloomberg sent a million dollars to Fla to try to get some leftist elected. Seems like that money would have been better used to buy water and get it to where it was needed.

"WASHINGTON (AP) — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s political committee is making its biggest expenditure to date in this year’s congressional campaigns, spending $1.1 million for TV ads opposing the re-election of a freshman Florida Republican from the Orlando area."

John Nolte:

"Last night, in the cold and with long lines, 30,000 people showed up in Ohio to see Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. That same day, Obama attracted a meager 2,800. But enthusiasm for President FailureTeleprompter can be judged by more than comparisons with Romney. In 2008, at his last stop in Cleveland, a Democrat stronghold, Obama attracted 80,000 people. This morning, at his last 2012 stop in that same city, Obama could only attract 4,000."

Jack is Back

pagar,

I get those ads on TV every half hour. It is depressing since Webster is anything but a career politician and he is the guy who beat Grayson in '10. That alone should qualify him for a Presidential Medal of Freedom once Romney is elected. The Lady running against him is an EEO/AA police chief despised by her rank and file is totally committed to repealing the 2nd Amendment just like Bloomy. NRA is running pro-Webster ads but just not enough to keep up with Bloomy bucks.

Have a great evening and see you all tomorrow.

We moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Idaho two years ago--back home actually, since both Mr. derwill and myself grew up here. What a different world, as you can imagine! From deepest blue to deepest red state politics and world view, and from densely urban to the wide open rural spaces.

rse, the southern part of the state is deserty. Mr. derwill grew up in Boise, and I grew up in Moscow, which is in the northern panhandle, but now we live in McCall, which is in the central mountains on Payette Lake. Best powder skiing in the country.

Interesting in the new Tom Wolfe, they actually have a solid General Honore type as the police chief, and a marshmallow mayor

Pitts

rse - regarding Systems Thinking in the Tucson schools, I can't really speak to that, as they start using that approach in Middle School, and my kids aren't quite there yet. Looks like a lot of happy-talk buzzwords to me, though. Tucson's schools suffer from declining enrollment and wasteful spending in any event, and the admin is telling parents to vote for a permanent sales tax increase next Tuesday "for the children", so this may be but one symptom of a general decline in the system, and the city in general.

narciso

I say lazy, because he recites the bogus numbers on early voting, that hit has debunked.

JiB--White Bird it is. They've straightened out the road, though, and made it four lanes, so it's nothing like the death trap it was when I was going to the UofI (Sarah's alma mater) and we'd drive down to Boise for a game against BSU--which was a junior college way back then.

DebinNC

Repealing the 2nd Amendment? I'm not watching the Sandy coverage on tv, but Drudge has a slew of stuff on the Sandy caused anarchy featuring bands of looters, self-preservation with bows and arrows and machetes, etc. If anything, we may see a push to repeal the NYC gun ban laws.

Is the tv coverage as compelling as Katrina's? If so, the BOzo Killed Obama movie ratings tomorrow night may be far less than expected.

There's a lot of angst about polls and predictions regarding the election, but I just don't feel it. I'm more fatalistic about it this time around.

If Obama wins, this country isn't going to be saved, and probably isn't worth saving. If that's how the election turns out, it's every many for himself, and to hell with civics. Better off with tax dodges and ammunition.

The fact that so many people will vote for him is almost enough to conclude as much even if he loses a close race.

I'll only feel differently if Obama is utterly disgraced in a monumental landslide.

derwill

DrJ--We lived eight years in Tiburon, and 22 years in Mill Valley. We had a wonderful life there, but toward the end something indefinable was pulling us home. There were things (like the opera and shopping the sales at Saks) that I expected to miss a lot more than I do, but I don't regret the years we spent there at all. Rather the opposite. But it's a whole different world here, and we're having a blast in our retirement. Although most people would think we're crazy--instead of going south and downsizing, we went north up into the mountains and upsized from a third of an acre to 10 acres.

Lack of proper vetting. Illegally accepting donations from foreign nationals.

Nice towns you lived in here. The father of a friend lives in Tiburon; he has sweeping views of the Bay.

I find most of Marin county just too precious, and I understand the pull of a large parcel of land. Personally I doubt I could go back to city or even suburban life.

But life is long (with hope!) so who knows.

I have an iPhone app called Waze, which is a free "community-based traffic and navigation app." Using this app, people can report traffic jams, police checkpoints, and now they're reporting on gas stations on Staten Island, New Jersey and beyond - which ones are closed, which have gas, how long the lines are, etc.

Apparently, there are long lines as far away as Wappingers Falls, NY (where Al Sharpton achieved Tawana Brawley fame and fortune). The place is about 70 miles from NYC, and wasn't severely hit by the storm. Meaning, people are fanning out that far north in search of gas!

Jane,

Sun Valley is on the eastern side of the state. McCall is farther north and on the western side, not too far from the Oregon border. The Sawtooth mtns. are in between. Sun Valley is where all the rich easterners like John Kerry and the Hollywood crowd go to ski in Idaho. McCall actually has better skiing (or so we like to think) and a big lake to draw the summer tourists, but it only has a small airport, so to get here you have to fly into Boise and drive two hours on a twisty two lane mountain road. That's kept it from becoming the major tourist destination that Sun Valley is. Shortly before the 2008 real estate crash there was a big push to turn McCall into another Sun Valley, but that was met with considerable opposition from local ranchers and those who liked the place way it was--small and unpretentious.

I think this is what DoT was referring to regarding Rove.

But doesn't it all come down to the all-important Buckeye State? Here, too, the early voting news isn't encouraging for the president.

Adrian Gray, who oversaw the Bush 2004 voter-contact operation and is now a policy analyst for a New York investment firm, makes the point that as of Tuesday, 530,813 Ohio Democrats had voted early or had requested or cast an absentee ballot. That's down 181,275 from four years ago. But 448,357 Ohio Republicans had voted early or had requested or cast an absentee ballot, up 75,858 from the last presidential election.

That 257,133-vote swing almost wipes out Mr. Obama's 2008 Ohio victory margin of 262,224. Since most observers expect Republicans to win Election Day turnout, these early vote numbers point toward a Romney victory in Ohio. They are also evidence that Scott Jennings, my former White House colleague and now Romney Ohio campaign director, was accurate when he told me that the Buckeye GOP effort is larger than the massive Bush 2004 get-out-the-vote operation.

After failing to mention the Tea Party by name on the stump in 2012, President Barack Obama mentioned the movement during at least five stump speeches on Thursday and Friday.

Running against the Tea Party movement that successfully stymied his grassroots agenda and energized conservatives and independents to give Republicans in the House a majority, Obama said Mitt Romney would "rubber-stamp the Tea Party agenda in Congress."

Jenny Beth Martin, National Coordinator of Tea Party Patriots, said Obama was continuing to divide Americans by badmouthing "millions of grassroots" Tea Party activists across the nation.

"In a single speech today, our current President demonized Americans who have achieved the American Dream and badmouthed millions of grassroots Tea Party activists in every state in the nation," Martin said on Thursday. "If he spent as much time uniting Americans as he does dividing Americans and attacking them, his presidency might have been a success."
