Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Tuesday

I say he's running, he says he's not. The Times thinks that if Zev tells a bunch of reporters he's not running for Mayor in 2009, he's not running. Didn't Tony Villar say the same thing? Oh, and Bob Hertzberg's running too.

The No2HomeDepot website is reporting that massive stakeholder meetings will be held featuring "1000 or more residents and 100 facilitators" as part of the shady deal, uh, settlement worked out between the City and Home Depot in the hardware giant's effort to open a controversial branch in the rural community of Sunland-Tujunga. Other shady dealings reported on the No2HomeDepot site as well, check it out.

Team Clinton gets more desperate. Following the endorsement of Democrat Barack Obama by former candidate and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, perennial Clinton slimeball James Carville referred to Richardson - a longtime Clinton confidant - as "Judas." Latinopoliticsblog.com views Carville's and other Clintonista comments as anti-Latino and calls on Hispanic leaders who support Hillary Clinton such as Mayor Villaraigosa and Dolores Huerta to speak up. We saw how the Clintons have slimed Barack, its not surprising they'd attack another person of color to go against them.

If you want some entertaining reading check out the "talk" page for Mayor Villaraigosa's entry in Wikipedia. The discussion includes interesting debate among Wikipedia's volunteer editors and contributors about what should and shouldn't be said about Tony Villar (including "Should it be noted his birth name is Tony Villar?" Answer: yes).

City Controller Laura Chick has a plan to get more police officers on the street - get them away from working desk jobs that civilians could do. Makes sense to me.

And finally, for one there's a ballot measure that isn't a Tony Villar sham. The folks at Guiness sponsored a petition drive for Proposition 3-17, to get one million signatures by March 16th in order to call on Congress to declare St. Patrick's Day a national holiday. Looks like they fell fall short. I guess not enough people drink Irish beer.

Don Culo has lots of community value in Ramona Gardens. I'm sure there are many Don Culo's all over East Los Angeles and N.E. Los Angeles. Drew street in Glassel park has generations of Don Culos who blame the LAPD and gavachos for all the problems in the latino community.

Its pretty bad when they have to rip apartments down rather than allow honest, hardworking, law abiding citizens to live in peace and harmony.

Ramona Gardens is the next to get ripped down. Ask Huizar. Drew Street in Glassel Park will be cleaned up by the people who are sick of the problems in the area.

When is everyone going to realize that Home Depots are a front. They are not really a store for do-it-yourself home improvements, they are clandestine work force centers built to funnel illegals across the border for immediate work, so they can disappear into society, thus avoiding the need for immigration formalities. The retail store front is the largest people smuggling ruse ever concieved. Sordid reality..

One guy who you left out who is definitely running is Walter Moore. There is a little Moorementum right now and all the advisers are worried about the way it's going to affect the dynamics of the race.

Remember, Moore's vote total in the last election was almost precisely the count by which Tony displaced Bob. It has only grown since then; it's a bigger displacement factor.

It's the same deal as with S-T: right now they need not will, but money. All the goodwill in the City does not beat money. But a little money can beat a lot of money, if one of these two groups---the Moore base or the S-T base---suddenly gets stupid busy in the right way.

talk about "slimeballs," start with those who are hateful racists like Wright and backstabbers like Richardson. "I'm loyal to you and thank you for putting me on the national map with high-profile jobs, but I'm endorsing someone else because I don't like some of the people around you." Even Jay Leno made fun of him, as everyone does.
Except you because Villar supports the Clintons so you have to hate him.

Under Bill, our economy and international standing were strong, and they both have common sense and ability to navigate between polar opposites to get things done. Obama is pandering more than they ever did, and refused to distance himself from even Farrakhan until forced to by public opinion, let alone Wright. His comparing Wright to Ferraro -- no, making Ferraro out to be worse -- is a dangerous indication of how he's "lead" our country.

You're sounding dumb, Mayor Sam.

Mailander thinks Walter Moore is a factor? Hahahaha

Moore is the guy who jumped in early, thinking it would be so easy to raise $150,000 to get matching funds and into the debates...am I the only one who has noticed that almost a year later he is still $70,000 short?

"Moorementum" indeed. Joe, I don't work for the Mayor's office, I just know Moore's candidacy is a joke and always will be.

Poor old Walter Moore. He'll never be the mayor of our city. But he can keep trying. He doesn't even have great ideas. He's just power trippy. He has none and wants some. Sad sack.
