Friday random thoughts...

• Yet another benefit of living downtown: Walking the Tracy trifecta of Ralph's, The Great Plate, and The Shamrock. In one night.

• Why the Central Valley will never meet strict air pollution control standards:
Windy days like Wednesday and Thursday.

• Quote of the week: "I think what this clearly shows is that they can even screw up spending the taxpayers' money unwisely," from White House spokeswoman Dana Perino, on a farm bill gaffe by the Democratic Congress.

• Straight Talk Express meets Quickest Developer in the West: Sen. John McCain, and his fundraiser stop with tycoon Alex Spanos.

• Hope we won't miss them while they're gone: Four wildland firefighters from Tracy are battling the Santa Cruz County blaze.

• Calvin and Hobbes quote of the week: "Why don't superheroes go after more subtle, realistic bad guys?" "Yeah, the superhero could attend council meetings and write letters to the editor and stuff."
