Friday, June 2, 2006 | Enough of the Cross. About 176,000 voted to keep the cross. The population of the city of San Diego is about 1,300,000. That’s 13.5 percent of the population. I had enough of the minority of people urged on by radio hacks looking for ratings. The majority either does not want it or simply does not care. Obey the law and stop wasting our taxpayers’ money.
