It seems that every "venture capitalist" is coming out of the woodwork (not Jackling house) to grab some free press for when future elections take place.
This is just nonsense at this point.
The differences in the quality of those homes in Santa Barbara and I believe Montecito, are almost laughable in the quality of work and detail. If this one were to be rebuilt next to one of those G.W. Smith designed, none of the elements are there which would make one dream the same architect was involved.
Mr.Smythe should have an architect take stickums or duct tape and mark all the tiles, faucets, toilets and bathtubs he would like to use in the rebuilding of the house, and play the organ at an opening night gala for this comical farce. This is like an Alec Guiness film of the 40's which is self-paroding.
Mr. Jobs, give the man his copper mailbox.
