This mailer from the pro-Measure X group landed in mailboxes yesterday, paid for by your friendly neighborhood no-growthers at Newport Greenlight:
Who are these NIMBY control freaks? It's beyond me how any rationale person can write an incredibly detailed ordinance in the belief it can successfully, beneficently direct the minutiae of human activity for the next 20 years. The Soviets tried that approach for, oh, 74 years and never managed to get it right.
Listening to these Greenlight II fanatics, one gets the impression they really believe that unless Greenlight II passes and prevent these unpredictable free citizens doing whatever they want, Newport Beach will slide into a miasma of Soylent Greenish degradation.
