Vintage tack.
 
 

 
 
We once submerged an aluminum canoe right up the bend from there.

This same guy once wrote a book on the importance of marriage in building character, even though he’d been divorced

 
Twice in fact, eventually.

You can’t make this stuff up.

 
 

 
 
Remember Sid Kolpas, the old math teacher at Burroughs who later went on to Glendale College, and is now back east in Maryland or somewhere?

Kolpas used to xerox the back of his GCC class syllabi with excerpts from this dude’s proclamations on character building and marriage. Whole paragraphs in fact.

For real. It was the damndest thing.

Apparently Kolpas thought these words of wisdom from Dennis Prager had something to do with creating personal discipline or whatever. Needless to say, we didn’t make ourselves very popular with the math department or Kolpas when we pointed out that not only was such non-math material bizarrely absurd and irrelevant to a math class — if not incredibly inappropriate — but the guy who wrote it was divorced.

Glendale College. Now there was a weird place. We helped nail them a few years ago.

Hear this all the time now

 

Sad but true. The same response to black and white.

Wonder what lonely ex-boyfriend came up with this…
 
 

 
 

Deal breaker, bigtime.

Remember the old days when there were great women at this age? The ones who made an effort to include things in, and actually liked doing so?

Especially old stuff. They weren’t turned off and offended by everything.

We’ve said this before and it’s true. Most of these kids now are such fucking stiffs. And this isn’t just old fogey talk, it’s what we’ve been hearing from the age groups right above them. People in their 40s and 50s are being directly impacted by this crowd both career- and life-wise.

Thank god we grew up in richer, livelier times. Funnier, too. What are they gonna do when we’re gone? All kill each other?

They have such a repressive, life-denying response to everything that it’s inevitable. No sense of delight anywhere.

Aren’t there pictures of her with Roger Stone in D.C. when he said he wasn’t there?

 

Another sad local nutcase.

There are a lot of them in Burbank now — it must have been all that Lockheed well water finally catching up.
 
 

 

Yep. January 6th.

 

 
Oh boy. Nailed.
 

…Stone has maintained that he played “no role whatsoever in the Jan. 6 events” and has repeatedly said that he “never left the site of my hotel until leaving for Dulles Airport” that afternoon. He has also decried attempts to ascribe to him the motives of the people around him.”

Wouldn’t Qanon folks think that eating a Qanon burger was taking a big chance?

At least it’s not pizza.
 

 
 
These people need to go. It’s all become more than wearying, the lunacy.

They all lie

 
Some national right-wing rag with real authentic “John Birch Society” ads makes it perfectly clear why you can’t deal with these people ever.

They always lie.
 

…At dawn on April 10, Burbank city officials erected a 10-foot-high fence extending beyond the restaurant property to the city sidewalk. The fencing material was compared to that of a steel door by protesters who gathered in support of the eatery on Saturday.

Yvet Chambers, a volunteer and member of the nonprofit BRAVE (Businesses Revolutionizing American Values & Enterprises), told The New American that “after initial complaints came through to the health department, it was a matter of two weeks before the city shut off the electricity, padlocked the doors, and fenced the property. It was a straight shot bypassing all due process.”

 
Ha. It was more like four months. The initial complaints came in November/early December, and Burbank made no real effort at enforcement until early April.

Burbank Bigots has the lowdown on one of the main crazies. Apparently this is the same chick who was trying to pull off masks at Whole Foods in that video.
 
 

 
 
They’re amongst us.

What’s the difference between non-binary and unspecified?

 
Yes, and the fact that we don’t know makes us deeply offensive, right.

This actually violates the rules, btw. The individual council members can’t get personally involved in departmental operations or duties. They can only pass along suggestions or requests through the city manager.

Why is it important for us to mention this fact now?

It’s because when people want them to involve themselves in a specific city task or function, they always say they can’t !

 
 

 
 
Is this really that important or necessary? How many people are affected by this change? Do federal rules require such categories now, and if so, why was any outside council help necessary?

Do-goodism busyness is what this sounds like. Silly priorities, really.

Why?

 

 
 

Oh boy. The Gateway to the Redwood Empire.

Give it about six months. Is there that much animation money going around now clamoring for a Calistoga getaway?
 

 

 

Only a true Santa Rosan would remember that old motto.

Biography

 
Some people would disagree and say he led the way to corporatize it instead, but interesting guy. An institutionalist.
 

 
 
Fifty years ago this was trite. Now it’s revolutionary.

Yeah, we get kind of sentimental too thinking about that old Penney’s, Robinson’s, Broadway, and Nordstrom

 
Ah, the memories.
 
 

 
 
Burbank always gets sold a bill of goods. It couldn’t even re-get a Penney’s.

While MyBurbank keeps writing their blowjob articles about the Cusumano’s charitable giving…

 
…the company’s Facebook page says a much different thing.

Just so we don’t forget, they were her No. 1 campaign contributor.
 
 

 
 

Too funny.

Her response to the Fedex shooting? This just in:

 

 

 .
What a sweetheart.
 

 
 

 
 
You know what?

Fuck those horrid, tacky, loathsome Cusumanos, fuck MyBurbank, and fuck the city itself for allowing in so many gun stores.

The East Coast has a real obsession with elite private colleges

 
The idea of having to go to one is very important to many people there. An odd and misguided value system we think, and one that creates a boatland of arrogant mediocrities and institutional game-players. They’re all over the place.

Makes you glad you grew up in California.
 

 
The smartest and most intellectually engaged people we’ve ever known went to the California State College System btw. Not UCs.

The Burbank City Attorney has been successfully whittling down both public comment and the ability and willingness of the council to respond.

Someone just tipped us off about this

 
Jesus. This is though part of an obvious political strategy.

Two years from now, when COVID has receded and people start to forget, the Democrats will be (successfully) blamed for making much ado about nothing. They hurt the country they did.

More proof that this country is hopeless

 
And these are the ones who are more likely to be union members!
 

 
Better? Black and Hispanic respondents?

Fuck ’em. People deserve everything they get.
