FLASH: Assembly Rejects THEN PASSES Villaraigosa's LAUSD Bill!
During the 6:00 p.m. news, NBC Channel 4 just reported Villaraigosa was 11 votes short, and apparently intends to keep trying -- tonight?
Too many Assembly Members apparently had this crazy idea that the people of L.A. itself, rather than legislators from around the state, should decide the fate of L.A.'s schools.
After hearing this report, I posted: "I gotta tell you: I didn't see this one coming. I thought it was a done deal."
As of 8:00 p.m., it turned out it WAS a done deal: the L.A. Times reports the Assembly subsequently passed the bill.
