Meetings Are Running Right Off Schedule

Steve Hymon over at the LA Times provides us his humor column for the week. This week's targets:
  1. Q: How long did the council's newfound discipline last? Answer: Six whole days!
  2. Q: What in tarnation is "Alger gear?" Answer: To help finance his state Assembly campaign, Jim Alger is selling 32 types of "Alger gear" on his website, http://www.votealger.com , to raise money for his campaign.
  3. Q: How did Los Angeles' float fare in the Rose Parade? Answer: Not so well. But at least it didn't break down.
  4. Q: Will the San Diego Chargers be moving to L.A. anytime soon? Answer: The Chargers announced last week that they wouldn't put a proposal for a new stadium on the November ballot because they couldn't find a development partner for a new ballpark.
  5. Q: If you are standing on the curb at Terminal One at LAX, what are the chances that 30 minutes will pass before a shuttle bus to Parking Lot C arrives? Answer: In a 30-minute span at midday on Dec. 19, the airport parking and terminal shuttles appeared in the following order: B, B, A, B, G, A, B and A.
  6. Q: Where does Councilman Dennis Zine like to strap on the feedbag in his district? Answer: One of the problems with working all the time in City Hall is that it's easy to sometimes forget there is a city outside.
How often do you get to use the term "feedbag" and "Councilman" in the same sentence?

I used to use councilman and SLEAZEbage in the same sentence all the time (not so much since he became mayor).

One of the great mysteries of the universe is what happens to all of the Lot C buses from when they go from the Departures level down to the Arrivals level?

I have been riding the Lot C bus for 20 years- and it's no joke- one will find more Lot B and Airline Connections buses than Lot C buses on the Arrivals level.

Lot C sucks. I almost missed a meeting because of their lack of busses. And I think I waited more than a 1/2 hour, on a Sunday afternoon! AND, I believe Lot B is SMALLER than lot C
