The Mayor's Analyst: A Psychoanalysis of Villaraigosa's Confabulations
If you're at all interested in L.A. politics, you must read this article: http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_4686542 .
There was a story -- how long ago was it? maybe eight years ago? -- about a federal judge in San Jose, Judge James Ware, who routinely lied about his childhood to make it more dramatic and colorful. Reading about Villaraigosa and his accounts of his childhood reminded me of Ware and Ware's revisionist history.
I almost feel sorry for the Mayor after reading the story, but not quite. You get to choose whether to tell the truth about your life. If you choose to lie about it for political gain, well, I guess you can't legitimately complain if a journalist calls you on it.
