A small town in Sonoma County, California, population of about 8,000. I used to work there while living in Santa Rosa. I'm sure it has some nice people in it, but all the kooks and assholes there are very conspicuous. One of the most unique things about Sebastopol is the huge involvement of the populace in its city government. Every city council meeting seems to have more than the usual amount of wackos, they seem to have gathered and conspired, it seems, and everyone else is an evil fuck. A meeting can rarely get anywhere because some sidewalk lunatic has to be heard. It has recently been known as Ban Town because it has set out to ban just about everything despite that its pseudo-liberals wants the town to be known for its tolerance of all people. Some of its citizens want to ban WIFI and Smart Meters (PG&E's radio-controlled utility meters) because they think it is very harmful to your health. Other cities call them the tinfoil-hatted. They freak out because the radio towers here are made to look like trees and old water towers on a farm; it must be a secret conspiracy planting all those hidden towers; they want the shitty towers more obvious? It has banned public drinking due mostly to the increasing incidents of drunk teen-aged assholes causing problems. It is now up in arms over leaf blowers; I hate leaf blowers, but you'd think this was the most important issue for the town since the skate park with how much press it gets.
Dude A: Dude, let's head over to Sebastopol and have some fun with them hippie chicks.
Dude B: Nah, can't! Don't ya remember they banned our ass, man!
