For Rodericks Pleasure

Knowing you'll all talk about it anyways, here you go...

"Hertzberg's embarrassment: While we're rehashing, this is kind of amusing. You might remember last week's five-liner about CityBeat's story on animal rights fanatics. About as routine as they come. CityBeat sends a pointer, the story looks interesting, I link to it and move on. Some days later, friends alerted me that former mayoral candidate Bob Hertzberg's personal blogger, Brian Hay, posted a strange adolescent tantrum because I didn't include a link to his link of a wire story at Mayor Sam's Sister City—an entry I had never seen. I clicked over and, sure enough, the kid was good for an unintended laugh. He ranted that I was "stealing his shit," unimaginatively trotted out "Roderdick" (hadn't heard that since Holmes Junior High), then actually typed—yes—a fart reference including that pearl of school playground repartee: "whoever smelt it, dealt it." Hay has struck me before as the more juvenile and least professional of the Sister City bloggers, and he seems especially bitter about LA Observed. But good lord man, have some standards and take a look around here. My little one-person blogging operation can be criticized on lots of counts, but somehow I don't think a surfeit of links to stories and reputable bloggers is one of my flaws."

You see, I can take criticism. Let's see him open himself up. And just for notation sake, it was a Friday fun post. So much for the sense of humor! Blog Away!

Maybe I should go join a gang for my protection (note: more humor)

He called you out. BAD.

This site has seriously taken a dive since you all "came out" and the rest of you quit.

Your pissing contest with Roderick was quite childish.

Yet another example of how Roderick will slime any blog that doesn't kiss his ass.

MF (Mayor Frank), actually I thought you criticized him for excluding sources that wrote on it earlier than the more obscure City Beat, LIKE THE LA TIMES.

I noticed he left that part out.

Frank L. Shaw (1887—1957) was an American politician that served as Chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the mayor of Los Angeles, California from July 1933 to September 1938. He has the dubious distinction of being the first mayor in the U.S. to be ousted by a recall; the intrigue and scandals surrounding his administration were dramatized (albeit in a 1950s setting) in the film L.A. Confidential. Today, his administration is generally considered to be the most corrupt in the history of Los Angeles. In addition to the recall, Shaw is perhaps best remembered for addressing the nation by radio during the catastrophic Southern California floods of February 1938 and declaring that "the sun is shining in Southern California and all is well," even as thousands lost their homes, and dozens their lives, to the raging waters of the Los Angeles River. His callous response is often credited with providing the initial spark to the recall effort that ultimately unseated him.

roderick is not a blog.

A blog has opinions.

NOt a regurgitation of news stories.

The problem is that Roderick wants to porove he is an objective reporter and journalist. So as far as rodericks blog it is just another newspaper.

Mailander has a blog and has opinions and makes room for other peoples opinion.

So I don't understand why Joseph mailander or anyone shjould even be worried about Roderick or even speak of him . His is not bloggin , his is reporting and just referencing articles in newspapers.

Roderick has the scoop on why these three fools (2mayors+1Chief) took the fall for Villaraigosa, Hertzberg, & Skelton.

He knows the truth.

who took a fall? Villaraigosa hates this blog. Hertzberg does love it. That's because unlike Tony, Bob knows the difference between a computer mouse and mickey Mouse.

When did he ban them? Did his staff member participate before during and after the election?

That is too bad he is banning them from this site, someone has to tell Tony the same thing too.

To the original poster? What year did you graduate (do you really "graduate" from jr. high????)

What happened to Mike Trujillo? Was that his name? The other posterfrom the Villaraigosa staff?

It's funny seeing the Mayor's staff run around like chicken without heads. A few of the new deputies look a little razzled. Can't they even comb their hair?

There appears to be a method to the madness in Room 303.
