While lobbyists from the ag and auto industries spent the week fighting California's efforts to address smog and global warming, hell's demons used enhance interrogation techniques on Jerry Falwell's eternal soul. Meanwhile, I was back in Los Altos, catching up on the news:
The members of the Los Altos School District board is in trouble for using "reply-all" in their responses to Amanda Aaronson's concerns that the plan to redraw school assignment boundaries will screw over Mountain View residents. This is what you people get for not voting for my dad.
The Mountain View City Council appears to be at least considering a plan to preserve a portion of the Grant Road farm. Council member Matt Pear is not happy about this, telling the Voice's Daniel Debolt, "It's an eminent domain action cloaked in a rezoning verbiage. That sums it up I think."

Finally, Los Altos High has replaced its marquee with an electronic billboard. Sorry Craig.
