Friday random thoughts

• Anything that helps residents police their own neighborhoods gets two thumbs up around here: Tracy is now part of — go look for yourself and find out what's happening in your neighborhood.

• I guess they were serious about that "no confidence" vote: The teachers union at Delta College is recommending the ouster of all incumbents running for the board of trustees this election cycle.

Can't we all just get along? Guess not: The jousting continues between farmers and conservation groups over the future of Delta water exports.

• Can you say "using a crisis for political gain"? Considering John McCain has admitted he's not well-versed on the economy, his postpone-the-debate-to-help-the-economy move looked disingenuous on its own.

• Can you say "maybe they're working together on this"? But McCain's move looked downright craven coupled with the House Republicans' holdout, offering a convenient opportunity for McCain to "bridge" a gap that appeared almost overnight.

• See, West High-Tracy High really is a friendly rivalry: Lincoln and St. Mary's high students got into a fight over their schools' "rivalry." In an In-N-Out parking lot.

• Scary finance-realted thought: Your individual share of the national debt is approximately $27,000.
