  Cold turkey on mayonnaise
June 26, 2009
No, that headline is not a misprint. I’m going cold turkey on mayonnaise. I’ve never really liked mayo. I’m not a fan of things that are rich just for the sake of being rich. Mayonnaise is so rich it kills the flavors of everything it touches, so I’ve decided to kick...

  Sold out
June 26, 2009
The Rohnert Park City Council meeting of May 26 reminded some of us more “mature seniors” of when Chamberlain of England “sold out” the Czech Republic to Hitler. Those wanting to “condo-ise” presented as poor a plan as could be made. No prices, what happenswhen one wants to sell, will...

  I was wrong
June 26, 2009
I supported George Barich’s campaign last fall and encouraged skeptical friends to give him a chance. I was wrong. He’s defensive, self-righteous and jumps to lawyers when he doesn’t get his way. Plus, his votes have consistently been wrong for Cotati. He voted against even trying to get a road...
