Interview on radio news today with someone and they said it was actually
ILLEGAL to use the public money to build the new SFO terminal without
having the remainder of the expansion plans approved (i.e. a
controversial new runway)! Want to guess who paid good contributions to
some election campaigns?

5 minutes before I hear the developer financed San Jose political
machine encouraging water conservation measures since SJ is putting too
much fresh water (flushing) into the SF Bay. They want us all to
conserve so we can get more high density buildings added (more taxes and
more people on concested roads). Until we conserve our water, they say
a moritorium on new building permits will be put in place. Like I really
want more buildings and this benefits me to have the moritorium lifted?
PLEASE! I urge all to open their faucets and let er rip!

This is SILLY. There are TOO many people here and it is destroying the
quality of life I knew growing up here (Daly City - Class of 1975
Serramonte High, born in French Hospital in SF - Now Kaiser I believe).
We all have to fight it or it will look like Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipai,
or Singapore in a decade.

No-Growth Kirk out
