Tweedledee and Tweedledummerers
First off, Cindy M. from Blogging LA reports that our old friend, "Hurricane" Jackie Goldberg was somewhat confused as to how young people commmunicate these days. During a speech at her alma matter, UC Berkeley, Hurricane told the students:
"They're worried about your generation, because you get your news from Comedy Central. And you blog, whatever that means."C'mon Jackie - its not 1967 anymore where you all got high off the fumes from the AB Dick (hmmm, interesting choice of a name considering) machine in the student union. Its all about communication. I wonder if she even knows that the successor to her LA City Council seat, Eric Garcetti has a blog?
From the ridiculous to the sublime, giving former traffic cop turned Councilman Dennis Zine a run for his money is his neighbor to the north, Councilman Greig Smith (where does he get the "i" in Greg anyway?). He flips, he flops, and amazingly, he flips again.
After supporting a new Wal-Mart in his district, apparently the other half of LA's version of "Starsky and Hutch" is now opposing the store. I'm not sure if the anti-WalMart folks ponied up a greater alleged slush fund than the alleged slush fund Wal-Mart gave up, but you never know.
Anyone know what Tom LaBonge is up to these days? It used to be he was the main source of humor around town, but not anymore. Way to go Hurricane and Gre(i)g.
