While the battle between Carmen Trutanich, Jan Perry and AEG over the expense of the City for the memorial service for Michael Jackson continues one Los Angeles resident has stepped up in a unique way
. Jose F. Vallejo has filed a $3.3 million lawsuit against the Jackson estate claiming as a taxpayer he has standing to make the case. Should Vallejo be successful any judgment awarded by the Court would go to the City general fund.
Here's yet another boondoggle the City is considering - putting a park over the 101 Freeway through Hollywood
. Just to speak to the cost is one thing, the safety is a bigger issue. If the park goes Nimitz Freeway in the next big earthquake or little kids get cancer from diesel fumes who is going to pay?
Here's yet another rumor from an extremely reliable source. Southern California ICE spokesflack Virginia Kice allegedly employed an illegal immigrant for years but fired her upon getting the ICE job. Shades of the Clinton cabinet!
Jay Leno may be coming back to late night
, perhaps even to the Tonight Show. With Leno's 10 pm show performing poorly in ratings, as well as the Conan O'Brien Tonight Show, NBC TV affiliates are screaming bloody murder. Daily Variety reports NBC has confirmed that Leno has been offered either a half hour show at 11:35 daily or to just take the Tonight Show back.
