Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Wednesday

Our Mayor and Police Chief have rolled over to the extremists at the ACLU and have created a homeless do what you want zone in Downtown Los Angeles (for more details, read Walter Moore's article or the LA Times article). The Mayor, the Chief, Councilman "Wacko Jacko" Weiss and others think its great. The thing is, the people who work, live and own businesses & property in the area don't think its that great. In New York, Mayor Rudy Giuliani addressed the homeless problem head on. Bratton's successor as Police Commissioner, Howard Safir joined the Mayor and did not give in to the ACLU. Of course, that was after Bratton was sort of run out of town on a rail for being a media hungry ho and always trying to steal the spotlight from Rudy. But that's another story. Jonathan Larson - the author of the great Broaway musical RENT - best asked a question that should be asked of Mayor V - "Do you really want a neighborhood where people piss on your stoop every night?"

In a related story, LA Voice reports on some guerilla protest "art" that went up in Skid Row, a street sign that says "ACLU CRACK HAVEN." The sign certainly makes the point that the settlement with the ACLU will certainly do nothing to assist police fight drugs in the area.

Mayor Villaraigosa will hold a press conference Wednesday to announce a series of international junkets he has coming up. Read a few more details at We Clean Your Toilets.

Maybe Zuma Dogg needs to go show the LA Neighborhood Council Congress a thing or two. Martini Republic reports that at a recent meeting LANC President Brady "I'm Don Garza's Favorite Guy" Westwater refused to allow opposition to the billion dollar homeless bond fraud, Proposition H, be heard, though he allowed Council President Eric Garcetti to drone on for 45 minutes. You know, the NC folks bitch because someone like Jackie Goldberg or Nate Holden get some kind of professional courtesy to speak before Council ad naueseum and they get 60 seconds. How about a little consistency here guys? Alger, can you explain this? Do I need to send Zuma down there to kick some butt?

The LAUSD announced Tuesday that Lawrence Manion has been named as the chief of their Police Department after serving in the position on an interim basis.

And finally, this is not good news for big box haters like Joe B., but a recall election that attempted to remove two pro-WalMart council members failed in Rosemead Tuesday. The reason? Well, because they approved a WalMart for their community. Maybe voters are starting to get a clue.

None of you have a clue. We are mad as Hell out here and we are not going to take it any more.

Its always stimulating talk on Mayor Sam but I do miss the way MS used to tackle corruption.

What can MS tell us about the rumors on the 4th floor.

Rumor has it there is one CM being investigated for corruption charges.

Hint: City contracts equals job security for family members.

"(From: Martini Republic) A yes vote on Proposition H will cost homeowners in the City of Los Angeles a billion dollars over ten years. No neighborhood council groups are recognizing opposition to the Bond, though many are happy to have bond proponents speak to their councils. "

The Martini Republic was wrong on the later part of this comment. Westchester's NC (6600 registered stakeholders) had voted to not support Prop H.

Clicks = $$ for Mayor Sam (not many, but then this isn't the main gig). Especially now that they're diverting readers off to commercial services. Plus the old dead mayor is bored with this site, has no real inside connection with which to create stuff for the blog, and never did pull the bulk of the weight here.

He's always relied on grandstanding morons, going all the way back to Villaraigosa shill "Chief Parker."

Rational, well-thought out threads on real issues pull 20 responses a day. Lunatics get 50 to 100.

What, no "strawman" thread from Councilman John today? It was like a bad soap opera. I was just sure we were going to finally find out if at least one of the neighborhood councils opposing Prop R had ever posted more than .01 turnout in a board election.

Mayor Sam did you read the whole story? Bratton had no choice because before this settlement the ACLU filed a lawsuit and LAPD couldn't do anything about the homeless living on the street. AT least now they can go after them between 6a-9p.

I saw Channel 35 last night and I use to be a big supporter of Zuma. But now he's too over the top and has lost my ears. He's become like Sadie Hawkins and the South LA Farmers. When to go everyday day and just rant and rave you become a joke and your message is lost. Zuma needs to get more serious cause he does have great issues he brings forth but his delivery sucks. I noticed no clowncil members in their chairs. Word is they're staying in their offices and voting from there.

While all your eyes are on "BIG TRIBUNE" in Chicago, your scribes were doing a good job reporting on "KOA ON SKID ROAD" matter. Great Op-Ed by Brady Westwater, proving that the "DGARZILA CREATURE" has not caught up to him yet. By the way, Did I read correctly that Brady and Don "broke bread together"?
The business community rightfully, is up in arms over the agreement between the city and the "ANTONIO CIVAL LIBERTY UNION". Where else in this country can one claim a 8x8 piece of concrete and have the ACLU call it your home? This problem is also spreading to other areas of the city, just maybe someone will take up "MAYOR SAM" on his idea and pitch a tent in front of Getty House.
Editor Baquet, is "HIS POLLONESS" allowing one of your scribes to travel with him on his junket, err, Business trip to England and Asia? Maybe, your Travel page editor will let him regale us on the "finer sites of his Journey".
To "EDITOR BAQUET", in closing, we the observer of the "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET", are keenly aware of the pressure that "BIG TRIBUNE" is asserting on the P.R., err, newsroom. Covering local news in a objective manner is a great counter to the suits in Chicago. Better though, would be bring more diverse local viewpoints to your pages. It would be a win win for you if you found a local conservative writer, or more, who could opin on local issues. this would also help you with the bottom line.

No, the Rosemead vote shows that WalMart finally won an election. This is a huge victory for them, albeit, it was in a small, insignificant suburb, not a large city. Still, for them, it's a start.

Rosemead is a city of nearly 60 thousand people, which makes it about twice as large as an area like Sunland-Tujunga, or similar places where they've fought "the box" within L.A. lately.

It's also a commercial hub for cities in the west San Gabriel Valley, East L.A. county territory and portions of the Eastside of the city of L.A. that line the 10 freeway.

L.A. residents will be shopping there from the Eastside in droves, and L.A. dollars will continue hemorraging out to big box businesses in other cities as a result.

There's no magical curtain around the city limits that keep people or their money in.

Wasn't that the argument for busting back the half-cent City cop tax that Hahn proposed more than a year ago -- that city dollars would go elsewhere to avoid it, especially outlying county areas and independent cities. Now the shoe is on the other foot.

WalMart and Rosemead was just a smoke screen for a simple grab for power. Couldn't will a majority in the last regular election using WalMart as a target. Couldn't overtake city hall with a recall "for the people" using Walmart. They even got the School district to sue the City over Walmart. Tax payer dollars paying both ends of city vs school board fight, all just for power on the city council and to propell one over ambitious former short term school board member now councilman who plans to replace Gloria Romero in the legislature. Yeh its about the people......not!

Good evening 6:09. Your post amuses me. I can take criticism, and did so on one of last evening's threads. I was called out and acknowledged the same in a gracious way. Unlike you. But then again, manners and graciousness are not hallmarks of a Clowncil sot, are they? So sayeth the Mayor of Fresno.

Bollocks, damn sot; the seas get rough and you react with personal attacks 'pon a man's package. Can you not do any better? At least add some character to it. And if you are short on character, then the clinical Latin names are always good form (i.e., labia majora). And NO, that is NOT the name of the island we dropped Ashburn, Runner and Mountjoy off at with two City Hall sots and NO RUM!

Methinks you are the cross-dresser from Piper Tech whose sweet nothings are used as a wind sock from time to time. Mind you, there is nothing wrong with cross-dressing in case any of the other sots decide to cry foul. Girdles hold more than just big fannies, savvy?

I don't engage in digs. I find that the foil and epee are much better for slicing one's ego to shreds. Oh, and the next time I get under your skin, don't let your Freudian slip show lest someone take it from you to use as a pirate flag.
