What's the Haps, Man?
Anyone that's a regular Mayor Sam reader knows the Los Angeles Times is running an experimental column inviting critics to take their best shot at the city "self styled" heaviest newspaper. Mickey Kaus believes the Times should print more gossip, thereby making politics more entertaining and politicians more human to voters. The Mayor has kept me busy writing this week, with his housing proposal meant to benefit police without actually providing the city more of them, his legal defense fund to fight allegedly, supposedly false corruption charges, his turn as a pothole filler, and his loss of the county D.N.C's endorsement. Antonio has also maintained a busy schedule, fighting with his colleague Tony Cardenas over which one of them wants to turn El Toro Marine Airport into a commercial airport more, also losing the county D.N.C. endorsement, and proposing a housing initiative I still can't decipher. I'm tired of writing about shady dealings and lame proposals, I need a break.
Let's take a tip from Mickey, but write about actual gossip. Anyone have the inside tip as to why Brad and Jen split up? Anyone have good gossip from the Golden Globes? On a lighter, but more substantive note, anyone have a good movie tip? What's the best place to see and be seen this weekend? Anyone know of any good concerts, shows, museum exhibits, or free events? What's the best way to enjoy the weather this weekend?
