Over the years (self stylized community activist) Martha Bridges has sued this city repeatedly. She usually loses, and loses, but like the hack duffer that gets one birdie per round, she's been bolstered by the occasional win... but not this time.
Last month I traveled to Riverside to watch her attorney basically make a fool of himself in front of a three judge panel at the court of appeal, as he tried to argue that Wildomar doesn't have a general plan. Even though adoption of the plan that the county had in place for this area was done on day one of the city.
Today I got word that the lower court's ruling was upheld, which was in favor of the City of Wildomar. Which translates into a win for the tax payers of Wildomar too.
To read my recap of what I heard in court, follow this link, and go to the midpoint of the blog.
Now that this question has been answered... for the umpteenth time, it makes a person wonder what propels this wretched Wildomar woman's endless onslaught against the city?
No one knows for sure, but it's a pretty safe bet that at least part of it stems from her losses when she ran for city council in 2008 and again in 2010.
Yes, it's hard to fathom that someone would be that obstinate for so long, but since when does reason or logic enter the picture when payback is on someone's mind?
If I were a betting man, I wouldn't wager that we've heard the last lame lawsuit from "Martha Bridges et al". Stay buckled up, the year isn't even half over yet.
Now, time for some Fun With Specious Logic
====================================It's been pondered before, about destructive historical figures, and what would happen differently if you could change something in their past.
Would they still have been in the position to cause such damage to others?
It's been argued that two of the 20th century's greatest tyrants could have gone another way, had circumstances been different.
First is Mr. Nazi himself, Adolf Hitler. He was an artist at one point. Imagine if he had been able to sell his art instead of having it rejected as "grim."

The next infamous person in my example is Fidel Castro. He was reported to have been a baseball player; a pitcher I believe. Imagine if he'd actually signed the contract he was rumored to have been offered.
And now we have a twice rejected city council wannabe. I wonder how many fewer lawsuits the city would have had to deal with had we just elected her instead of rejecting her?
The world will never know
Oh, and for those of you with your mouth agape after that last bit of offhanded musing, asking, "Did he actually just compare some sue-happy old bitty to two of history's worst dictators?"
Looks like I did.
Fine, I win the Godwin Award for needlessly bringing in Hitler to make a weak point. But the point stands.

It has been said that we are prisoners in a dark closet, with small openings, that, on occasion, admit some light. Small wonder that the demons who lurk in the deepest corners, are more real to us than the sweet light of reason outside.– E.G. Marshall CBSRMT 1974
Wildomar Rap reminds you that the sweet light of reason is also sugar and gluten free.
