West Nile Virus: San Onofre

West Nile Virus is the most prevalent mosquito-borne disease in the United States.

West Nile Virus is NOT going to magically pass over San Onofre. If you're planning on surfing, or being at, San Onofre near dawn or dust, your risk is much higher than at midday.

There is no time of day or night that is guaranteed to be safe. You should apply insect repellent containing DEET, Picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus AT ALL TIMES while at, or near, San Onofre. Apply it to all skin not covered by clothing. It can also be sprayed onto clothing for extra protection. Long sleeves and pants are strongly recommended. You are not in any way "safe" from mosquitoes when you are out in the water. The Great White Sharks at San Onofre don't scare away mosquitoes.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, people infected with WNV can develop a severe illness. Symptoms include: high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness and paralysis. Some people infected develop milder symptoms such as fever, headache and body aches, nausea, vomiting and sometimes swollen lymph glands or skin rash. Some will not have symptoms. West Nile Virus can be a life-altering and even fatal disease.

It is best to dump out water that has been sitting around in items such as buckets, tires, plant saucers, bird baths, pet water bowls and children’s pools. Mosquitoes only need a half inch of standing water to lay eggs. The eggs can hatch in as soon as two days!

Camp Pendleton officials are "taking measures to protect base occupants from WNV" by treating only large bodies of standing water, and they will do so on a 28-day cycle through October. If you take much comfort in this, you are not paying attention. Standing water by showers, bathrooms, drinking fountains, drainage pipes, ditches, etc., will not be treated. Mosquito eggs hatch in only two days, so that leaves about 26 days of virtually no protection, even around large bodies of water on the base.

I'm cautious not to tempt fate by saying "It can't get any worse a San Onofre," but you've got to wonder. And don't think you can hide from the mosquitoes. Most of then will be too small to see, only a few million will be as big as the San Onofre Mosquito (pictured).

"San Onofre Is 'Ground Zero' For Sharks" - O.C. Register, May 25, 2010

- "The bottom line is Trail One at San Onofre is ground Zero for these So Cal white sharks."

- "The 9-mile channel of San Onofre is the migration route for the big whites that go to Hawaii and Guadalupe Island from the Farallon Islands."

- "Keep your feet up."

All quotes from Orange County Register, May 25, 2010.

You'll Come Because Of The Apocalypse, You'll Stay For The Sloppy Joes

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth...And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. [Revelations 6:12-14]

If you have a fear, there will always be someone willing to take your money and promise to save you. These guys near Barstow, California, promise to save you and serve you a diet including Sloppy Joes. You don't want to try to survive the Apocalypse on a diet of cream cheese in rolled tortillas, do you?

Tide is turning

by Robert Robb, The Arizona Republic columnist - May. 15, 2010 05:33 PM

I sense that the tide is turning in terms of national reaction to Arizona's new immigration law.

When the law was passed, opponents reacted swiftly and fiercely and spun it as a civil-rights issue.

Opponents charged that Arizona was relegating Latinos to second-class status. The law was racist and xenophobic. Allusions to police states, the segregated South and even Nazi Germany abounded.

It's become clear, however, that most Americans see this principally as a law-enforcement issue. A steady stream of national polls consistently show the same thing: A solid majority of Americans (usually around 60 percent) believe that local law enforcement should be doing the kind of things the Arizona law provides. Moreover, a solid majority of Americans also believe that Arizona was right to take action on its own, rather than wait for the federal government.

That changes the game. It's easy for critics to depict a small state as a bunch of racist rubes. Harder to do that for the entire country.

• Attorney General Eric Holder's admission, in a House committee hearing, that he hasn't read the Arizona law is also likely to be a turning point.

Holder has denounced the Arizona law. He has said that the federal government would be closely watching its implementation and will consider suing to keep it from going into effect. All without actually reading the bill.

Holder's admission was both breathtaking and unsurprising.

Opponents of the bill routinely and grossly mischaracterize its provisions. Even national news accounts are far more often inaccurate than accurate in describing them.

I suspect that among those denouncing the law and Arizona, Holder is more the rule than the exception.

• Meanwhile, immigration-rights groups, whose top priority is legal status for those currently in the country illegally, are touting their own polls to encourage Democrats to get bold on immigration.

According to them, comprehensive immigration reform, including legalization, is an electoral winner. In fact, they claim that even legalization standing alone, not buried as part of ostensibly tough border and workplace enforcement, is a winner.

It's clear that Democratic politicians actually running for office don't believe this. Almost universally, their strategy is to allow as little daylight as possible between them and their Republican opponents on immigration.

Arizona's Democratic candidates are a good example. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, running for re-election in southern Arizona, is stressing her call to deploy the National Guard to the border. Ann Kirkpatrick, defending her seat in northern Arizona, has introduced a bill providing for an additional 3,500 border guards and denounced the calls to boycott Arizona because of the new state immigration law.

Harry Mitchell, running for re-election in the East Valley, will tell you he supports comprehensive immigration reform - if you ask. But what he voluntarily tells voters is all the enforcement stuff he favors. Jon Hulburd, the impressive Democratic candidate for John Shadegg's open seat, has a tough-as-nails statement on immigration on his website that doesn't even use the word "comprehensive" or refer to legalization at all. In fact, it flatly embraces the new John McCain position: "No discussion of immigration reform is possible without first addressing real border security."

Presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry Goddard is stressing his support for making illegal border crossings a federal felony.

This is all because Democratic politicians understand an electoral dynamic that the immigration-rights groups don't: What a majority thinks isn't as consequential as what a majority of those who care about the issue thinks. In American politics, intensity matters.

• Most of what is being discussed in the U.S. Senate won't really do much to protect taxpayers against future bailouts. An exception is an amendment offered last week by McCain.

It would have reinstated the $400 billion cap on taxpayer subsidies to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, eliminated their federal conservatorship in two years, and required them to be stand-alone entities without any implicit federal support within five years.

The taxpayers are already into Fannie and Freddie for $145 billion with no end in sight. The Obama administration lifted the $400 billion cap, clearly indicating an expectation to blow by it.

The amendment was defeated 56-43, with only two Democrats, Evan Bayh and Russ Feingold, voting for it.

I sometimes wonder how much different 2008 might have been if McCain had stuck with his anti-bailout instincts rather than succumbing to the apocalyptic warnings of Bush Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.
