    i went to that article and the ad served to me was “would you give your job to an illegal alien”.

    i dont think even illegal aliens would do my job for more than a week. :(

    There’s a local gang with the name Shalimar in it. At least one that some of the high school kids are in. NOW I KNOW WHY, dar

    That’s terrible.

    Shalimar’s really spiraled out of control since the 80s.

    Ugh. This is only about 2.5 miles away from my home. That poor child. There is no way that, at 15, she could have understood the situation and the choices that resulted in a shotgun going off into her chest. At least she wasn’t killed.

    Growing up in Newport Beach, I was blissfully ignorant of “the tracks.” I remember the first time I was told that there were prostitutes on Harbor Blvd. I was so surprised! I’d seen them, but it never occurred to me that they could actually be prostitutes. I don’t know what I thought they were. Posers, I guess. Youth is so remarkably blind, and age so extremely careful to keep our chosen blinkers in place.

    Christ on a pogostick. I read the comments. Mistake. Big mistake.
    Poor kid.

    I had forgotten how much bile was forthcoming about folk with last names like Vasquez, or really anyone darker than a piece of toast….

    I wonder how many “small government” Republicans requesting ICE sweeps would appreciate comparable DEA attention during a coke & ungreased anal party on the yacht?

    Our label guy in Japan was telling us that The OC is hitting it big in Japan. ::slaps forehead:: I assured him of the facts you describe here. UGH!

    It’s nice to know the OC Register hasn’t changed. It is still the standard for right wing facism. Go Reg! And is there a single social or economic problem that conservative racist morons cannot blame on “illegal immigrants”. They are the new gay.

    I used to live in Costa Mesa (briefly) and I spent a fair amount of time there in the past. That street is less than a mile than the favorite bar of my youth, where I spent way too many evenings drinking Guinness and whiskey with Mojo and S9. Mojo used to live not far from there in fact. Damn, I used to work on the corner of Harbor and Adams at the old Cal Fed. I never, ever had a problem in Costa Mesa.

    I live across the street on Pomona Avenue. I have for 4 years now. Between the helicopters and random gunshots all night long, it’s a wonder the crime isn’t in the news 24/7. Actually the cops don’t use their sirens around here. They only use the lights and horn. We never know of these crimes unless we see them or read about them after the fact.

    The thing is- nothing ever happens on our side of the street and block. Everything happens in Shalimar. Costa Mesa cops, do your job and at least let the neighbors know what is going on 25 yards away for our safety. At least I see you guys randomly park in our garage area in the middle of the night-on surveillance or something. Next time I am calling Channel 7 for help.
