Tuesday, May 03, 2005 | Voice Peanut Gallery Review is an informal compilation of the thoughts and opinions of a cross section of San Diego political pundits and citizens.
San Diego City Councilmen Ralph Inzunza and Michael Zucchet: Corruption trial starts today. Outcome could determine their political future.
San Diego City Councilman Scott Peters: Decision not to be reappointed to the California Coastal Commission and not run for mayor allows him to focus on city council issues.
Amylin Pharmaceuticals: Receives government approval to sell new diabetes drug produced from the spit of the poisonous Gila monster lizard.
San Diego Padres: Tough road trip followed by winning two out of three against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Pitching and hitting erratic in key spots.
Alan Bersin: Dodges the unemployment line. Appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to two state posts – Secretary for Education and a trustee for the state Board of Education.
