" The Great Hall of Political Dysfunction on Spring Street"
Los Angeles various "scribin observers" of all thing radiating from 200 Spring Street these recent weeks, were busy penning, and in a couple of cases, "pawing their musings" on the dysfunctional state of affairs at City Hall.
Here is an aggregated assortment of just some of the creative missives, penned in the recent days. Enjoy or weep, which ever comes first.
** Lets call these the dueling "Cirque du Missives".
Ken Draper at City Watch has "Cirque du City Hall",
meanwhile Los Angeles Times Scribe Steve Lopez pens "Cirque du L.A.".
If someone acts quickly, they can copyright the "Cirque du ......." and make some quick bucks.
I don’t want to single out Villaraigosa in this. No wait, I do. He’s the guy who wanted to be mayor then governor then president then whatever comes after that (guy who gets to date all the TV ladies around the world?). If Toyota President Akio Toyoda ultimately gets the blame for all those sticky gas pedals, then L.A.’s sticky deficit ends up the responsibility of the man elected to lead the city, the man who appoints the DWP Commission and pulls their strings.
Over at Ron Kaye's Blog, "Bruno the Watchdag" raises his mug from some kibble and bits "Nazi-like contraption" and paws away these canine musings.
Even Bruno in his advance canine age, can discern and chew on the "Cirque de ........" bone. Wonder if "kibble and bits" are "legal doggy tender" for incoporating the copyrighted "Cirque du ........" brand?
Meanwhile for me, its back to the "Cirque du Lakers".
