Let me get this straight Sheldon, if I park somewhere, lock my car, leave some valuables inside, somehow I deserve to have my car broken into? Did you spend some time in the Soviet Union?

I assume your question regarding “I deserve” is rhetorical. You obviously don’t deserve to have your car broken into. In a perfect world you could even leave valuables in your unlocked car, banks could leave their doors open after they close, packages left on front porches wouldn’t get stolen. But, I’m afraid this very very far from being a perfect world. If it was people wouldn’t have stormed the capitol.

No, I have never spent time in the Soviet Union and not sure what that question even means (by the way the Soviet Union hasn’t existed since 1991). My grandparents were Russian Jews does that count?



Ventura Harbor experienced unpredictable currents and damaging surges following a massive undersea volcanic eruption near the Pacific Nation of Tonga on Saturday, January 15, 2022.

Daniel Wall, City Emergency Services Manager shared at the Ventura City Council Meeting of January 24, 2022 that he had received a call at 6:15am from the Office of Emergency Services advising him that Ventura would experience a 20 centimeter increase in water level at the Ventura Harbor and “we should be aware and let people be aware.

The event created a significant amount of damage: 24 residential docs were destroyed, a Harbor Master Patrol boat sank due to the tide and swift moving water. It presented itself as a mild event and turned into a pretty significant event”.

Mr. Wall proclaimed that this was considered a State of Emergency. It was shocking to also learn that Emergency Services found that “the Tsunami Monitor in the Harbor was not working and this will result in that being repaired, whatever that particularly means”.

Needless to say, this brought to mind the events of the Thomas Fire and what did not work during that catastrophic event.

I’m tired all this nonsense about beauty being only skin deep.
That’s deep enough. What do you want and adorable pancreas?
