To Rational Approach:
Rossie has a point. The town has once again embarrassed itself.

The "Decent "society"" you mention cares for others especially those less fortunate. Noblesse oblige my dear. Perhaps you have not heard of it amongst those you "associate" with, but then again you are busy pretending to be high end and would not understand.

First, Rossie, NOBODY said ANYTHING about skin color. As even Kanye West said recently, everybody is just too eager to play the race card. Put it away.
Second, people are allowed to associate with whom they choose. You don't get to tell people who their friends and associates are--they get to pick them.
Third, it is perfectly within any town's right to refuse a license for anyone to operate a hotel, particularly if they plan to do it in a building totally lacking normal hotel facilities.
Fourth, learn what it's like to live within decent society and follow the rules. Your attitude of "I want it my way now, and anyone who doesn't want to just give it to me must be racist" is simply childish. Grow up.
I'm pretty sure i didn't call anyone a racist. If you come on down to Ross, you will in fact see that except for a handful of something else, everyone is in fact rich and white. Noone was asking these people to associate with the homeless. The church wants to be able to do what they want to do...help others. Don't they have the opportunity to associate with whom they choose? AndI haven't heard any complaints about a lack of hotel facilities. Only outlandish self-centered fear mongering bs.

Well, if your earlier quote, "an attempt to once again keep anyone unlike themselves (ie rich and white) out of our town borders," isn't an attempt to call them racist, I don't know what it was.

Well, to be blunt, Elizabeth, your comment would sound a whole lot less hollow if you lived in the Canal instead of Mill Valley. Mill Valley is the town full of people "pretending to be high end", not Ross.(Ross residents don't have to pretend, they are there.) For the record, I live in neither, but I support the right of people who do live there to keep their standards up and not let their town deteriorate into the sewer of tolerance for every addiction known to humankind that places like Fairfax and Bolinas have become, to say nothing of the similar problems facing larger cities.

Why, oh why, are so many people so eager to reward irresponsibility and punish those who believe in the standards of a decent society?
