Last year we held a Shifting Baselines Roundtable Evening at the Scripps Birch Aquarium. One of the members of the "roundtable" was San Diego City Councilwoman Donna Frye, who offered up a series of very savvy comments about the changes she and her famous surfer husband, Skip Frye, have seen in the coastal environment over the years. Now she is on the front page of USA Today because, having gotten fed up with the scandals of the current mayor, she is a write-in candidate for mayor who is caught up in a three way tie so close that the counting won't be finished until the end of the month, and it is seriously looking like she could win (even though she only started the effort a month ago when the level of local disgust reached a threshhold).
