News from the Left Coast

My brother still lives in San Diego, just a quick jaunt to Camp Pendleton. (affectionately called by us locals for years as "the Jarhead Factory")

Yesterday he and a pal went up there to check out the protest for the Marines being unjustly held. He fired off this brief email to me:

"We hopped into dad's mighty Lincoln and blew up to Pendleton. The demonstrators were out in pretty good force. In front of the main gate
we were, with signs, babes, ABC news, CNN, snacks, lawn chairs,
sunblock. Flags. AND: you will recall that wonderful Star Trek chopper cycle
that has been here in town for eons. That baby is still rolling.

One of the national supporters, radio host
Michael Savage, has part of his website with pictures of the Pendleton
demonstration. This is what it looks like:

He also reports that it's a fair guess that about 85% of San Diegans are unspeakably pissed about this. There still is a very big military presence in that town and a huge majority of retired Marines and swabbies make that area home.
We gotta keep up the pressure!

Pat, I think my brother is fudging the numbers a bit. But considering that San Diego has such a huge military retiree population, they are the most conservative city in California. But considering that it is California, afterall, that's all relative. S.D. does have it's share of left coast looney tunes, it's just that rest of the folks keep them in check! : )
