As you read comments from those who don't want Costa Mesa improved, notice that the most rabid haters don't address the substance of my column but make ad hominem attacks that have nothing to do with my column.
Remember in November who these people are. Watch who they support for the city council and then be sure that you don't vote for those they support or you may see an end to improvement and an increase in crime, slums and other downscale conditions.
Since I don't use Facebook, I'll comment on the commenters over here on my blog. If any of them want to ping pong back this way, they can use the comment feature down below.
But, be sure to use your real names.

Billy Folsom · Top Commenter · Owner/Photographer at Dumb Biker Visions
And, Billy, why don't you want to see the Westside improved? Do you like gangs and crime and slums and schools that upwardly mobile parents refuse to send their kids to? Did the evil White man do something to you, Billy, to give you such an outlook on life?
Billy the Campaign Manager
Several years ago, Folsom was the campaign manager for Bill Perkins who was running for the city council in Costa Mesa. Now, Perkins was a good guy and he could have been elected had he run a better campaign and had he listened to the Improvers. Instead, he went off in a different direction and apparently listened to the wrong people, presumably got bad advice, and his campaign failed to take hold.
HERE AGAIN IS A LINK TO MY DAILY PILOT COLUMN (TURNED INTO A LETTER BY THE DAILY PILOT) ABOUT THE IMPROVEMENTS ON THE WESTSIDE
In my column, one of the subtler points I made was that the improvements are coming in by putting the pieces in place, one little one over here, one over there and so forth. The reason I made this point is because many of the haters, as I've said before, seem incapable of seeing the gestalt--the big picture--of what is going on. They fail to see patterns where they exist and imagine them where there are none.
Yes, not seeing the forest for the trees and not seeing the trees for the forest comes to mind.

THE WESTSIDE'S INCREASING DIVERSITY
I don't have any statistics on this yet, but from my personal observations and those of others, I can say that the Westside is starting to diversify.
There are Irish-American Whites, German-American Whites, English-American Whites, Swedish-American Whites, French-American Whites, Polish-American Whites, Italian-American Whites, Greek-American Whites and many more Whites with various European ancestries who are now moving to the Westside.
There are also young Whites, old Whites, middle-age Whites moving there. Blue eyed Whites, Hazel eyed Whites, Grey eyed Whites, Brown eyed Whites, Green eyed Whites, Blond haired Whites, Brown haired Whites, Grey haired Whites, White haired Whites, short Whites, tall Whites. Straight haired Whites, curly haired Whites, bald Whites.
I celebrate this wonderful new diversity.
The Westside will, as a result of this new diversity, see lower crime rates, higher property values, better schools and a higher quality of life.

MSM video (2:56 min.).
What is happening in Oakland is that Whites are moving into some neighborhoods and are making them trendy, and Blacks are now attacking the Whites, robbing the Whites and burglarizing White homes, in what might fairly be called a race war. The fact that the attacks also involve robberies, etc. does not mitigate the racial nature of the attacks.
And, this isn't just happening in Oakland, as you well know if you've been a regular reader of the CM PRESS.

NEW COMMENT AFTER MY COLUMN IN THE DAILY PILOT
Do be sure to follow the link given by this character. And, if you like what you read, you may also want to buy my books. If you don't like what you read, well, just don't read it. I write to be read, but I don't force anyone to read what I write. You have to intend to read it.

Is there a future in print?
Our present flatworlders seem incapable of understanding that the person one sees in the mirror is made by a DNA code that they inherited from their parents.
That DNA code contains 46 chromosomes and around 20,000 genes. That DNA code, taken as a whole, is the recipe to make you, you.
And, what effect is the environment on who you are? Well, continuing with the metaphor of the DNA code being a recipe, the environment might be thought of to be a little like an oven in which that recipe is baked.
The point is that genes are us. Understand the genes and you pretty much understand the organism.
And what of free will?
It is much overrated. I'm reminded of how some subjects of stage hypnotists are given post hypnotic suggestions to do something silly.
For example, they may be told that when the hypnotist says the word "Hello," the subjects will flap their arms and cluck like a chicken.
And, on cue, that is exactly what happens.
But, and here's the connection to free will. Most of these subjects that just flapped their arms and clucked like chickens will later say that they weren't hypnotized and they knew exactly what they were doing. "Why, I just felt like flapping my arms and clucking like a chicken. I wasn't hypnotized at all. It was my own free will decision to flap my arms and cluck. I just felit it was the right thing to do." But, of course, they had been hypnotized. That's just how it works.
