Wow, Mayor Sammie's has gone dark, and mid-week. Maybe the death knell finally sounded.

There hasn't been anyone with any real "inside" track on the city blogging here for years, just angry misinformed gadgnats (not big enough to even be gadflies).

It had to happen.

Now, you "moved" that comment posted at 11:48 just to "in your face" the poster.

Is that ethical??

That would be a major mistake. I see he's back from a purported trip to the East, already spewing his classic, snide, omnipotent venom. What a toad!.

The hiatus from his wisdom was exhilerating.

Hmmm, the more names that are added to the 'contributors' list, the smaller amount of threads actually appear. Someone should chart that phenom mathematically, and write a thesis on it.

Is this "big news" in the Mayor Sam world, or something that is REALLY relevant, as the previous poster suggested, like Mirthala.

Of course, Villar would be relevant provided that it's HIM rather than scumbag Matt Szabo or others of his ilk.

PLEASE SPARE US IF IT'S, LIKE, THAT SOCCER MOM'S KID OR SOMETHING.

That tiresome MeCHA apologist at 11:48 is always saying how there's nothing of interest and no one knows nothing, jumps all over anyone about the illegal issue, but note how he's always here, either first or right on the dime when it comes to mention about illegals and how they've sunk the city. His bosses on the Eastside must be very worried that the poeple have finally stopped being the silent majority. Let's see how long it takes him to jump on this again.

Here's two hints...

1) The person has not written for the blog before

2) It is a well known name in LA, in fact becoming so nationally

Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen (extends middle finger to 12:09pm):

We always thought you were a bit fishy, however, you, if you will, have now given the world at large concrete evidence that you are more than a bit fishy. (Whispers) You're rather fishy and most certainly out of water, savvy?

"It is a well known name in LA, in fact becoming so nationally."

Half of L.A./tinseltown is a demi-celebrity somewhere, or else think they are.

That's not a lot of help!

With this kind of hype, you're probably setting yourself up for a major jeer if this turns out to be a real nobody.

The Shaw family has asked me to forward this CORRECTED version of their prior message about their plan to attend the County Board of Supervisors' Meeting on May 27, 2008. They have learned that the meeting will be at 1:00 p.m., not 9:00 a.m.:


TO ALL CONCERNED:

According to a Lieutenant at the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department, 1,000 men are being released back into our communities every day! No one is checking the immigration status of these 1,000 men. NOT the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department and NOT the Los Angeles Police Department.

Please join with The Shaw Family and Concerned Citizens in the Communities, at the Board of Supervisors during General Comments on, May 27, 2008 at 1:00pm. Let's meet together in front of The Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration Building at 12:30pm.

Our focus will be on the 1,000 men being released into our communities each day and why the Board of Supervisors should support Jamiel's Law!

The Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration Building
500 W. Temple Street (The Corner of Temple & Grand)
Los Angeles, CA 90012

I like that, may use it:

Bongwater Kim

- He was confirmed by City Council, you know, as GM the other day, even after his staff gave him a huge vote of no-confidence as reported here earlier I think.

My guess is the only other people that want that job are the Van Nuys public-comment gadflies themselves. They'd finally get to talk more than two minutes, per item.

You know if you add up the wasted 2-minute increments used by all them and Zuma Dogg together, agenda item after item, it probably adds an extra 45 mins. to an hour a day to council meetings.

Times 15 councilmembers, plus staff, etc. (hmmm, carry the six, divide by 2).

Hell, Sharon Brewer alone's costing the city a thousand bucks a week in the collective time of elected officials and city employee's just listening to her. That's as much as some of the fee waivers she's barking about.

I think I just solved the budget shortfall in L.A. Cut everyone's salary downtown, but give them the perk of not having to listen to the crazies at public comment.

Greg Nelson DESERVES to stranded be on Mayor Sam's deserted island, but since I'm obsessed with checking in a couple times a day myself I think I'll just slit my wrists now, if it is him.

The Pope of Pablum, right here - every day, giving inane "top 10" lists of how he'd fix the city if he was god.

The High Priest of Hypocrisy, carping about city officials pulling the same kind of hijinks he did in bucketloads when he was on the payroll.

The of Soothsayer of Sour Grapes who suddenly discovered that democracy and self determination were "pretty cool" -- just ONE DAY after he was kicked out of city government.

I'm gonna have to get an Rx for of OCD meds myself.

(PLEASE Mayor Sam, I've sent you a couple REAL good tips in the past anonymously. If it is Greg Nelson, it's not too late to turn back - before all hope is lost!)

This place is a blazing inferno compared to CityWatch. Mayor Sam would have to "double bag" the comment moderation just to keep stage-mommie Greg from wilting into a puddle of goo every day.

A couple hundred city employees are going to looking for jobs in a few weeks, right Mayor V?

Ah, just think of all the juicy gossip that can come out of that, and maybe make it's way here.

You should put out some feelers, Mayor Sam. The dirt could flow like candy out of a Villaraigosa-shaped pinata once the pink slips hit the pay envelopes. For that matter, enterprising news reporters should be waiting in the parking lot that Friday they're cut loose.

Let that be a lesson when selecting which underlings to fire, city managers. If anyone knows where your department's bodies are buried, it's probably worth hanging on to them to keep them quiet.

(That's a HINT, boss! You don't pay me for all this spin blogging here.)

He's got thinner skin that Greg Nelson. He makes Zuma's hide look like 100 rhino leather.

He'd never show his turtle-necked profile here again. That's why he wore that in his photo, you know - to duck back in what things got to dicey, like a turtle.
