My Tree is Bigger Than Your Tree

I think Steve Hymon from the LA Times is suffering from tree envy. Today he chronicled the height of LA's Christmas tree with those of other major cities. Leave it to a guy to get in a "my tree is bigger than your tree" pissing contest. Oh well. He needs to remember this old addage: "It isn't the size that matters. It is what you do with it"

Thank You Steve Hymon once again for giving us such a great laugh at our politicans.

This is how dumb Antonio's spokesperson is.

LA Times....Our tall trees are still in the ground, and during the mayor's tenure they will be joined by a million more," said Diana Rubio, the secretary who must have drawn the shortest straw.

She was referring to Villaraigosa's campaign pledge to plant 1 million trees to make Los Angeles even more beautiful.

This was news. Was the mayor secretly scheming to convert L.A. into the world's largest Christmas tree farm?

Rubio laughed politely. Reporters! Aren't they funny!

Did you note that short stubby little stiletto Roderick slipped Steve this morning: He calls the Grove 'the fake Italian village in the Fairfax district.'" No, probably not smart for a beat scribe to dis a big shopping mall. Where the hell are all those ads supposed to come from?

But while Hymon is stuck on the fluff beat, actual City Hall news is suffering a bit. Indeed, it took two scribes, including McGreevy's stabilizing hand, to put together the Four Dead on Skid Row story, which they only got straight from a Council meeting. Shaky goings on for a paper that said it wants to emphasize local news more.

I guess Hay and Igby still hold a grudge against Hymon for the outing article.

I don't think so, anonychump. I think anyone who's been called up by Steve Hymon and balled out for twenty minutes like it's your wife on the phone loses interest real fast.

Mailander, do people still read the LA Times? It's hard to take that paper seriously.

I like Steve Hymon because he's not afraid to report city hall shennigans. People do read LA Times including valley people. We don't have great choices here in LA but thanks to Hymon, Patrick Mcgreevy and David Z. we get stuff we normally wouldn't be getting. Thanks guys.
