As far as my views on San Francisco are concerned- this discussion has nothing to do with that. I'm sure it's a great place- I've never, unfortunately, had the privilege of going there and I envy you. So there, I said it.

Cambridge- You still haven't answered my question. Can you lead me to the thread in question so I can read the ENTIRE COMMENT and not just your EDITED VERSION

I just wish Walt would get on and talk about this. I can't believe he actually said that. Cambridge's 'paraphrasing" reminds me of Big Daddy Pollits in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"- he came out and he said he smelled deceit and Bullsh-t and he said: "I smell Mendacity! There's Mendacity in this Room!"
Well, there's Mendacity on this Thread- and guess where it's coming from? Northern California- Frisco- Mendacity!

Look, Cambridge, I don't give a rat's ass about Frisco. I'm sure its a great place and you sound like you're really happy there. Good for you. Just do me a favor- stop "bobbing and weaving" and be direct- just lead me to the thread- or "copy and paste"- so I can read for my little itsy-bitsy self what Walt actually said. Ok, is that too much to ask? I Don't want your "paraphrases"- I want to read what the man actually said, OK?

Ok, Cambridge, I read those posts- only 69 was by Walt- the rest by other people. You said: "in a previous thread walt stated that if too many solar panels were installed that they would use up all the energy from the sun." I asked: please lead me to that thread or "copy and paste" so I can read it for myself. So far you haven't done so. I mean, what's up dude? Too busy soaking up the Frisco rays to bother- or maybe had a bit too much of the (medicinal, ha. ha.) Pot?
Walts Comment made good sense- talked about different building standards in your lovely state- sitting on a major seismic fault- and Ohio a far more stable region. Only makes sense to liberal-loony birds to put up buildings the same way in both states.

This is all a joke- a very expensive one for the taxpayers and students footing the bill. They brought Dunn in to "increase enrollment and raise academic standards" despite the fact he was being let go at his last cushy assignment for NOT being able to do precisely that- yet, they hired him anyway. It's bizarre- most major corporations- auto makers for instance- routinely elevate someone to the top post who worked his or her way up in the organization and knows it- as well as having loyalty to it. Why are Universities any different? I'm sure there has to be many experienced people down there with the ability to run the place- but the BOT doesn't give them a chance- they prefer Carpetbaggers and Over-paid Half-baked Flunkies instead. For Shame (Garg is an Oncologist- a Cancer Specialist- maybe he ought to have his own head examined- there might be something growing up there addling his judgment. Time to retire to Fort Myers, Doc.).
As I've said many times before: "It's just a Dog and Pony Show"- Nothing More.

Huntsman. Is she Mormon? I would guess so. Suggests that when a religion pushes people- women in the case of Mormons (not far behind Islamic's in that regard)- they snap.

Cambridge, are you sure you're not misrepresenting or misquoting Walt here? Could you name the thread or do a "cut and paste" and supply the entire comment, so I can read for myself?
Actually, I like the concept- using up the Sun with oversized Panels- sounds like the kind of thing I might say in jest- Mad Magazine Stuff.

"Almost every comment on this thread is pure conjecture by rank amateurs who have very little technical or scientific knowledge- which includes anything I might have to say which is why I won't say anything- Only exception to above is Walts Comment- coming from somebody with an Engineering Background- what he says Is Persuasive. Everything else reminds me of the kind of stuff you hear in Barbershops- Bullsh-t and Blather".
Nothing has changed since I first said above, sad to say. It's all junk. Walt talked about specifics coming from a scientific background. I like Barbershop Bull same as anyone, but enough's enough!

It's all a front. Left-over Hippies like Bobby Hagan trying to rehabilitate themselves with half-baked science and bring Pot into the mainstream- if there's something in Pot good for certain people- and there isn't much evidence for that- let physicians make that decision. I'm sure the chemical in question can be obtained- like other drugs from plants- and quality controlled by the Pharmaceutical Industry and made available to Physicians. But, there isn't much call for that from mainstream circles- It's only the "tie dyed" ones- geriatric Hippies like Bobbie trying, once again as they did in the sixties, to hornswaggle the public with self-serving Horsesh-t.
