Ran across a pretty good – and telling quote: “The Ten Commandments contain 297 words, the Bill of Rights 463 words, and Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address 266 words. A recent federal directive regulating the price of cabbage contains 26,911 words.” That from an unknown author who would appreciate the absurdity of a 2,000-plus-page document seemingly destined to govern land use in Santa Clara County, the Habitat Conservation Plan. Years of meetings, millions of dollars, a plethora of government agencies ... and what do you get? A 2,000-plus-page document that nobody truly understands.
New Year's Day in Gilroy 72 degrees ... so strange, next thing you know I'll start to like rap music or, heaven forbid, duh Raiders. Naw. Weird weather, though, freezing nights - like 25 degrees on the westside for nights in a row - and zippo on the December rain meter. And on the horizon 'tis clear skies. Good for golf tee times, but lousy for ski resorts.
