“We’ve made huge strides in controlling pollution from pipes, but toxic runoff from agriculture operations, the urban landscape and industrial facilities still plagues our coasts, bays, and rivers,” said Aminzadeh. “It is a low profile, high-impact problem that degrades the California way of life and our state’s ocean and tourist-based economy.”

Death culture invades bookstore - by Kap Fulton
If America is, in fact, the overwhelming favorite (the New York Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, and Los Angeles Lakers combined) –then who is the other side? And why are they winning? We are one people. Earth people. In fact, we don’t seek victory or control. We seek only unity.

Why Marine Protected Areas? - by David Gurney
In California's Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) "Initiative," the president of the Western States Petroleum Association sat as a top ranking board member throughout the statewide undertaking. Real estate and marina developers, corporate aquariums, contracted monitoring and scientific services, universities and state agencies - all stood in line for their share of the ocean resource pie, that the MLPAI's new closed areas would provide them, once enacted.

Scripps study: Two key southern California fisheries collapse - by CalOceans
A new Scripps study has found that two key Southern California fisheries--kelp bass and barred sand bass--have declined by 90% in the past 20 years, continuing an alarming trend that has seen other targeted species like cowcod, sheepshead and halibut dwindling in the region. One proven way to rebuild fisheries is protecting the places where fish feed and breed, and California is working to do just that through the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA).

Five Minutes of Geography … - by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The late Lenny Bruce once joked that the radical Right's fears about — shock! — sex education in the public schools were unfounded because schoolkids weren't going to come home and tell their parents, "Today at school we learned five minutes of geography and ten minutes of cocksucking." The modern-day radical Right's campaign to get rid of SB 48, a bill recently passed by the California legislature to require middle and high schools to teach the role and contributions of Queer Americans (...

Members of the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice and the San Diego Veterans for Peace (SDVFP) staged an alternative commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in Balboa Park, at which SDVFP solicited donations for their "Compassion Campaign."

They've already helped out 700 people, many of them veterans, and need your help to do more.

Labor/Progressive Coalition in San Diego ? Will It Change a Damn Thing? - by Rocky Neptun
I have watched power liberals, strut, posture and be awash in their aura as “the loyal opposition.” Their hierarchical, self-serving, activism (many are paid professionals) has long ago abandoned organizing in the neighborhoods, the hoods and barrios. Their liberalism, weak, shallow; it tinkers rather than confronts, compromises rather than challenges, sends you to “break-out sessions” rather than to the streets.

Tea Party America and How to Fight It - by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The recent debate in Washington, D.C. over raising the debt ceiling has underscored just how totally the radical Right in general and the "Tea Party" in particular have taken over America's political debate and the economic and social consciousness of a majority of Americans. The remnant of a Left that still survives in America can only fight back if it first realizes, like a rehab patient, that we've "hit bottom" and then musters the kind of internal and external discipline it will take to m...

The Debt Ceilling: Where Are the Grownups? - by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The fact that the ruling elites haven't stepped in and forced the President and Congress to raise the debt ceiling, the way they did in October 2008 to push through the TARP big-bank bailout, suggests either that the corporate ruling class likes the "shock treatment" agenda being pushed by the Tea Party -- force a default on U.S. debt so the President and Congress will have to eliminate the welfare state virtually overnight -- or that the Tea Party has become the ruling class's Frankenstein, ...

The Marriage Vow(s) - by Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
The vote of the New York legislature to legally recognize same-sex marriage has produced a backlash of unexpected ferocity and scope. It comes from an Iowa-based organization called THE FAMiLY LEADER (that's the way it's printed on their logo) and it's called "The Marriage Vow." It's a far-reaching set of principles that goes beyond attacking same-sex marriage and supporting a Federal Marriage Amendment to ban it nationwide. It targets African-Americans in particular and says Black children b...

Obama's National Ocean Council "Listening Session," Part 2 - by David Gurney
Natural Resources Secretary John Laird dismissed as a "conspiracy" the many local complaints of citizens and news reporters about conflicts of interest rampant in the MLPA "Initiative." He mouthed the mantra heard again and again from MLPAI officials - of an "open, transparent process," that "reached out to tribes" and achieved a "non-divisive unified proposal…."
