San Diego Political Podcast

This time to record Bowler’s Desk Political Podcast Ric Epps and I met up over at Roucco Park.

It’s a nice park with some very cool modernist/minimalist flair. My only criticism is that the park doesn’t have any shade. While the park was named for a local Architect Lloyd Ruocco. The park is designed to honor Ruocco’s minimalist and modernist style.

However it is in desperate need of shade. There are benches that no one sits in unless they want to fry in San Diego’s famous sunshine.

OK now that’s off my chest.

For the podcast Ric and I talked about:

How Mayor Filner faced his third veto override in a row.

The Tourism Marketing District.

In January, Charlesworth’s ex-husband violated a restraining order by appearing on the school’s campus, putting the school to be locked-down.

“I left that afternoon, was told I was taking the week off and I haven’t been back since,” said Charlesworth.

Three months later, a letter from Holy Trinity to Charlesworth stated that her contract would not be renewed and she would not be allowed to teach at other Diocese of San Diego schools.

The letter said Charlesworth was not only a danger to herself and her kids, but also the students and staff at the school.  School administrators pointed…
