Seems this article is a little one-sided - and honestly - should belong in the tabloids instead of a "news"paper.

This article seems to be a tell-all article of ones financial troubles. It carries no value except to try and hurt and/or embarress.

I cleary hope this is not the writers best work.

A tabloid-oriented article? I think not, but rather a report of business and fiscal current standings of two major business Bay Area individuals, one of whom being a prominent political figure. Written to embarrass or hurt them? Only in so much as the Koellings’ own actions have led to their fiscal downfall. It is the ramifications of their own personal actions and subsequent enabling have now spilled over into their financial sectors, and now inevitably, their public personas.

Apparently a comment about students directed to drop out was "so what", that was years ago. The issue of ''I'' and so what if parents sell the house, or ''so what''. I paid for my older sisters 2 year college books, she complained when I cant babysit her children after her divorce, she wants UC for her child. Teh child said 'so what about your job', I want to go out with sisters' friend, why I spend so much on groceries and blockbuster weekends, but I am at work Monday - Friday.
