L.A.'s Top Two Stories: Mayor Approves $29 Million For Homeless AND Zuma Dogg Show, Tonight at 5:30pm on Time Warner/Hollywood
And, since the Mayor keeps getting pissed off at his staff, cause ZD keeps stealing his thunder, with breaking news stories that superceed the stories he WANTS you to hear about...and I've been kinda hard on the guy, for the past few months, ONLY BECAUSE OF WHAT I AM HEARING AND SEEING. So here's something that sounds pretty good for the City (conceptually), because the City DOES have to address this problem in a very real way, because it's the big painted elephant standing in the art gallery, that no one has taken seriously. So thank you Mayor for what seems like a good start to me. Sorry confused ZD fans. I don't only report one side of things, it just looks that way, cause City Hall is so messed up. But when I hear good things happening in the City, I'll report that, too. Otherwise, it gets boring.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD - More than 2,000 homeless people will receive financial help to find permanent housing under a $29 million expansion of the Section 8 rental-subsidy program, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced Monday.
The program will fund shelter as well as social services for the homeless residents. The city already has 51,000 families receiving Section 8 subsidies.
"Every night in Los Angeles, there are 45,000 people sleeping on the streets," Villaraigosa said, standing in front of a new six-unit apartment complex of two- and three-bedroom units. "One-fourth of those are women with children who have no place to go because the shelters are full. This is a way to give them a chance."
Now, I'm sure the critics will post the problems below, that ZD is naive to. That's how these things are always uncovered. Like Mr. KABC told me on-the-air, he thinks it's too expensive, why don't we just hand the money over to the homeless, it'd be waaaay cheaper. So, maybe some people who know more about it can post how this thing works and the kind of things the money is spent for. AND PLEASE, DON'T DO TO THE MAYOR WHAT HIS SUPPORTERS ARE DOING TO ME. DON'T JUST BASH THE MAYOR. Try and explain what's up, and if there are legitimate beefs; do I want to hear them? Hell Yeah! But keep it real.
More importantly, remember to watch, "Zuma Dogg Fights City Hall" (it's a good one, and not TOO anti-City Hall...it's the one where the LA Times sends a photographer to cover me, but I didn't know at first.) Tonight 5:30pm, Time Warner/Hollywood system, Public Access Channel. And 10am,7:30pm & 12mid on TV 35, yeah, yeah!
