Friday random thoughts ...

• But when will they come over the hill? Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, has secured federal funds for a public bus system between the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station.

• Because you can't keep a conniving strategist down: Karl Rove, still plying his trade, still trying to sink the Democrats.

• Because you can't keep a councilwoman from trying to keep out the middle class riff-raff: Councilwoman Suzanne Tucker, for voting against a city program to give developers incentive to build more affordable housing. (The measure passed 3-1.)

• Someone had to state the obvious, because those knuckleheads sure weren't figuring it out themselves: President Bush, telling Israeli and Palestinian leaders that both sides will have to make concessions to reach a peace agreement.

• Since they've actually got a plan, maybe we should see if it works: Councilman Steve Abercrombie, mayoral candidate Celeste Garamendi, and local sports guy Karl Enzmann have laid out the rough skeleton for meeting local youth sports needs.

Thank the snow gods by skiing! After quite the dry 2006-07, the Sierra snowpack is currently at about 110 percent of its to-date annual depth.
