Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Friday

Joseph Mailander writing over at Martini Republic has a review of PBS' "The New Los Angeles." Though Mailander counts himself among the "leftie labor leaners," he finds the documentary's strong pro-labor union stance leading it to distort the facts. Check out Mailander's review here.

LA City Nerd has proposed an anti-graffiti plan for the city. While some of the things are stuff that is already being done or has been tried, he brings some good ideas to the forefront. His greatest hope is to get a discussion going amongst blogs, and we're glad to oblige.

A number of Latino owned businesses and businesses that primarily cater to Latinos plan to close or not buy or sell goods for this coming Monday's "Great American Boycott." On the other hand, a number of workers and business owners say they can't afford to participate in the boycott.

"At the same time, the politics surrounding the budget heated up as word spread in City Hall that Villaraigosa planned to endorse Assemblywoman Cindy MontaƱez (D-San Fernando) over Councilman Alex Padilla in the race for the state Senate's 20th District seat in the San Fernando Valley.
