The city council in the city of Highland, CA in San Bernardino County called San Franciscans a bunch of “kooks and nuts” and castigated San Francisco supervisors for their “tomfoolery,” as they unanimously approved a resolution “prohibiting the expenditure of city funds for attending conferences, training seminars and/or workshops to be held in the City of San Francisco.” What started all this? A decision by San Francisco voters to pass an advisory measure banning military recruiters from schools in the last November election.

Are they serious, or are they trying to bring attention to their tiny little town of 50,000 that sports an old diner as their city center. Hey, it’s no Union Square maybe they need the publicity. Are they really that excited to have military recruiters at their schools, or are they just jealous of our fabulous city by the bay? Either way, the people that are going to miss out the most are the city employees of Highland, who won’t be able to enjoy San Francisco because of the actions of an ignorant few.
