Did candidate for Lt Governor Janice Hahn jump the gun in announcing that half the City Council has endorsed her bid for the seat? We found alerts in both Google Reader and Google Search with a list of Hahn endorsements but at press time the link to the post was now re-directing to the main campaign website and none of that content could be found. What gives? Did someone pull back an endorsement?
A Superior Court Judge ruled that the City Council violated the state's open meeting act when voting to turn the South Central Farm into a shopping center. The Clowncil should have given supporters of the farm, as well as the general public, 72 hours notice to mobilize and speak out. You may remember this was the farm that Councilman Dennis Zine showed up at in the dead of the night wearing his LAPD uniform and scared the crap out of the farmers.
Secession from the Los Angeles Unified School District is happening but one school at at time. Applications to take over thirty LAUSD schools by various outside organizations were flowing into the District before a deadline of Midnight Monday evening. Even the UTLA has applied to take over the schools which is like your abusive spouse buying you an engagement ring as the divorce becomes final.
Paul Krekorian continues to keep campaign promises as he saved some at-risk trees in Sunland-Tujunga which also saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary assessments for property owners. Yet blogger and former Mayoral candidate Phil Jennerjahn continues to bizarrely tag Krekorian as a Socialist.
Now that Jay Leno's 10:00 p.m. talk show on NBC is moving back to late night NBC has to find new programming to fill that hour. One of the options is yet another program in the "Law and Order" franchise based in LA. Yet producer Dick Wolf already tried this with the 2003 series "LA Dragnet" which featured Al Bundy as Joe Friday. Still if the Law and Order LA does come to fruition imagine all the fun cameos with folks like Mayor Villaraigosa, Tom LeBong and Phil Jennerjahn.
And finally for some reason once again a bunch of folks rode the LA Metro wearing no pants. Not sure anyone in LA even noticed.
