Gustavo's Latest KCRW "OC Line": On Huntington Beach's Plastic-Bag Ban Wars!
Ban bag battle royale

If you've been paying attention to local politics at all, you'll know that Huntington Beach is currently run by a cabal of lunatics--I mean, more lunatic than usual. They're the people who saw a previous, more-liberal City Council's ban on plastic bags in the city as the greatest government overreach since King George...and, of course, did government overreach in overturning the bag ban.
Now, add another government layer to the battle, as three environmentalist groups sued Surf City last week over the repeal of the ban. That was the subject of my weekly KCRW-FM 89.9 commentary yesterday.
As usual, you'll have to go to KCRW's website to listen to my commentary. Enjoy!
