Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Wednesday

Jim Alger has announced he will not be seeking the 12th District Council seat of Greig Smith. He can quietly go back to sleep (Greig that is, not Alger). Some suggested sending Listerine strips to Mayor Villaraigosa, I recommend you gift Councilman Smith with gift cards for Starbucks.

The Zuma Dogg Summer continues, the revolution of 2006 presses on. This time, Zuma Dogg is kicked out of City Hall while his mother makes her first public comment. Also, LA Voice picks up on the Z Dogg phenomenon.

Martini Republic takes to task local papers who don't make the effort to research what is actually happening when it comes to housing, as opposed to relying solely on real estate pundits from local universities.

Here in Van Nuys shows a filthy mini-mall that has escaped City attention. While the Council is dealing with global warming and fighting the war in Iraq, local problems go untouched. Here is a list of the suspects responsible for this mess.

Straight Democrats are rallying around openly gay Republican Assembly candidate Steve Sion. A candidate meet and greet is planned for August 24th in WeHo.

Wikipedia has an interesting article about the O-Bahn Busway in Adelaide, Australia. The similarities between the Orange Line and transit in the San Fernando Valley are interesting and could certainly provoke some discussion on transit.

Mayor Villaraigosa will be joined Wednesday by religious leaders who will announce their support for legislation that would give him control over the LAUSD.

Doug McIntyre of KABC will be running a segment with new information about Academia Semillas del Pueblo Wednesday morning.

Chief Bratton will appear on Patt Morrison's KPCC radio program Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Your phone calls are welcome.

Zuma Dogg's mom did a great job and made many valid points. This CC is arrogant and out of control.

Mayor Sam,

Did you actually LOOK at the video?

This idiot screaming obcenities from the sidewalk into City Hall is a vivid demonstration of what we DON'T need in this city.

Decorum ZD - Look it up.

I am not gifting Clowncilman Smith with anything but my promise to aggressively campaign for whoever opposes him at election time. If I have to write in Alger, then I can do that also.

Do you REALLY think ANY Republican will win the 42nd? Come on now...don't be that naive.

Someone tell the "Dogg" that we have a "Parke" for folks like him, near where I live. He just has to remember to "scoop" afterwards.

But hey, I'll take that campaign - disorderly conduct or no - especially if he's got a cool half million or so stuffed into that Goodwill divan sitting out in the back yard.

Could be a new challenge. I don't think I've yet represented a whining Whigger in a run for public office, especially such an overaged one.

And, if he's gay (or willing to say he is for a few months), I've got some old dusty message points I can drag out and reuse. .. maybe save him 100 thou or so on slick mailer copy.

Or, he can go "grass roots" but that's REALLY barking up the wrong tree.

If you are trying to keep the clown troop out of the Council, do not write in Alger's name. He is the biggest clown of them all.

Is Toilet Guy going to wash some more feet? Or do we have to wait until next Good Friday?

1:23,

Doug said that he had requested some records from the LAUSD and from the school itself (under the CA Public Records Act) on the school's operations, but some law firm hired by the school had responded to the request, two weeks past the mandated deadline, to say that they were not able to but were trying to locate the requested records. Then, another law firm sent a letter to the station demanding that the station correct "slanderous" statements they made about the Cesspool.

Just your typical Aztec gayness.
