A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Monday, July 25, 2005 San Diegans go to the polls: San Diegans will pick a new mayor in tomorrow's special election. It's highly unlikely that any candidate will top the 50 percent +1 threshold needed to win the race outright. Which means another election will be held a month from now.
San Diego's City Council is currently short 3 members -- the recently resigned Mayor Dick Murphy and two convicted councilmen gone -- and the city is facing a huge shortfall funding its pension system.
San Diego is probably the nation's most mismanaged city -- I encourage you to vote, but I'm skeptical that it will have any effect on the downward direction of "America's Finest City."
