So what's Mayor Villaraiogsa going to do now that he's a lame duck? Run for US Senate in 2012, at least that's what the LA Weekly is reporting pundit Charles Feldman is positing. It's a good landing place and helps the Mayor keep his track record of never finishing one job before running for another. And I think Betty LuParker would make a great DC social hostess! (But keep her away from Tiger Woods!)
Phil Jennerhan handicaps the 2013 Mayoral race. Phil doesn't include himself or Walter Moore but gives odds-on favorite to City Council President Eric Garcetti. That's correct, for now Garcetti is the front runner until something better comes along.
Betty Pleasant, who always stays classy, is at it again. She has a disease called PDS which stands for Parks Derangement Syndrome. She is obsessed with Bernard Parks and is already accusing him of abusing new LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.
Sandy Sand writing in the LA Daily News hits local pols for excessive travel. Just after getting back from a trip to a city sponsored book fair in Mexico, Mayor Villaraigosa was off to Coppenhagen for the phony Climate Change Conference (complete with free hookers). Councilmember Dennis Zine wants to put the squeeze on such travel however Dennis is known for his own junkets such as a recent trip to Israel to "study" water conservation.
In case you were keeping track we had another water main break. Put a pin in the map in Baldwin Hills.
Not that I'm against medical marijuana but while the City of Los Angeles seems paralyzed on how to deal with the issue other agencies have no problems. The County moved fast to shut down an illegal dispensary in Whittier Thursday.
