    California Town Votes to Love Nature

    BOLINAS, Calif. (AP) -- Residents of this quirky coastal town north of San Francisco decided overwhelmingly to declare their love of nature, skunks and a few other things perhaps not as easily understood.

    Sponsored by a local woman known for wearing hats made of tree bark and newspaper, Measure G won 314 to 152 in the town of 1,200, where residents are so protective of their isolated way of life that they regularly remove highway signs pointing into town.

    The text of the measure, in its entirety: "Vote for Bolinas to be a socially acknowledged nature-loving town because to like to drink the water out of the lakes to like to eat the blueberries to like the bears is not hatred to hotels and motor boats. Dakar. Temporary and way to save life, skunks and foxes (airplanes to go over the ocean) and to make it beautiful."

    Default Recruiting a Firefighter?

    I would love to see the criteria for joining the local fire brigade.

    Something along the lines of-- Vertically challenged, drug dependant, Ethnic minority, physically handicapped, tree hugging --Lesbian (or other) preferably a Pyromaniac,must be over 80- wanted.

    That seems to have covered all the PC bits--Ageism/sexism and all the other ism's.
    Any more for the list?
