"Mountain View Voice"

Rex: Good question, but the reference to "Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto" in the lead sentence would seem to settle it. (I called KGO Radio news this morning to ask them to repeat the mention of "which city" the "south bay bureau" reported had voted to outlaw dog leashes longer than 6 ft... The story had apparently begun with the words San Jose but that was before it caught my attention. This context-first journalistic tradition is more of a problem on radio.)
