***Special Order 40 lives on to "protect" a growing
underclass of people in the City of Los Angeles.Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Rolf M. Treu, granting a motion from the city and the American Civil Liberties Union, said Harold Sturgeon failed to prove that "Special Order 40" was in conflict with federal and state laws that dictate the flow of information between local and federal agencies regarding people's immigration status. as excerpted from the Los Angeles Times.
No shortage of comments on this issue for sure.

***Call this a "Bloggin Pile On", DWP General Manager H. David Nahai in his brief reign as the "Shah of Water and Power" has quickly become the "Poster Boy" of what a Department Head should not be in the City of Los Angeles.
Arrogant, Self Center, Aloof and Politically Asute is not the way to endear yourself to the taypayers who pay your $300,000 + salary. So with thanks to "Westchester Parents"
and Ron Kaye's Blog
we join the party in exposing H. David Nahai as the "Shah of Water Waste" for Public Official in the City of Los Angeles.
But shouldn't Nahai be forgiven for generously opening his home and his water usage to the public - a commitment to model good conservationist behavior?
Certainly, if that were the whole story.
The story behind that story, in fact, shows more political calculation than chagrin. Nahai's offer to the Daily News was nothing more than a clever pre-emptive strike against another reporter he considered a bother. For weeks Nahai had resisted requests from independent journalist, blogger and all-around muckraker Alan Mittelstaedt to turn over his water bills.
It was a reasonable request. The man who was resurrecting the water police and
portraying himself as a conservationist ought to be willing to be an example.
Nahai was annoyed by the request and the persistence of this journalist, and knew he would have to give up his wasting ways sooner or later. So he used a tactic common to clever public figures: He took his story elsewhere. Hah. Take that nosy Nelson!

Taxpayers need to give Alan Mittelstaedt
thanks for taking on the "Shah of Water and Power" and exposing his hypocritical actions.
***LAPD, General Services, and Private Security will provide on-site security at the City of Los Angeles 109th Street Pool, located
in the "No-Man's Land" between the Nickerson Gardens and Jordan Downs Housing Projects. This pool was the scene of a rampage last weekend where pool staff came under assualt.
***........and this from a source in CD 14. A official from CalTrans who oversees State owned properties in El Sereno, South Pasadena, and Pasadena, quickly departed a meeting when informed that an "certain person" was invited. Apparently threats has been made against this official by a person with interest in CalTrans properties.
