Rant with Randi: The Evolution of Prejudice

Randi Crawford

We have lost the opportunity to be a great individual in this country and I’m going to use a recent example to make my point. It used to be that you hated me for my color, religion, gender or sexual preference. Today, you love me and show deference for the same reason. Whatever happened to letting me be me and you liking or hating me because of me? I believe that we’ve overcorrected for our sins of the past.

San Diego Mayor’s Update

Thank you to all who joined me last month when I presented the annual State of the City Address. When I walked on stage and looked out to the audience assembled in the historic Balboa Theatre, I was again humbled by the support shown by San Diegans.

I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”

San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update

Rick Scmitt

With the release of Gov. Jerry Brown’s budget proposal for the 2014-15 school year, I thought this would be a good time to give an update on our current budget and an early outlook for the next year.

Stuck in the middle

I have been reading with earnest the numerous Letters to the Editor published in your newspaper the past month which either strongly support or strongly oppose Proposition B.  Almost all have been sharply worded and accuse the other side of deception, misleading information and lies.  My guess is that despite all the tough talk and [...]

Scratch below the Prop B surface

The little blue house perched on a Solana Beach bluff top awaits its February fate via a vote of its people.  Its glass doors stretch open to the roar of the ocean waves crashing below, welcoming sea mist floating on air.  But, despite proponents’ proclamation to “protect your right to use and enjoy your community [...]
