Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Wednesday

He sleeps while the Valley stinks.
The union that represents the Engineers and Architects who work for the city, traditionally one of the more responsible and least greedy of LA's public employee unions, is the first such to make a deal with the City to share in expenses for their health care. The move will allow the City to effect millions in much needed savings and put pressure on the rest of the unions to step up to the plate.

Looks like the once storied Sunset Junction Festival was FUBAR. Employees of businesses along the route were forced to pay the entry fee to get through the barricades and to work, the event owes the city a quarter of mil for services and a massive amount of trash was left behind. Suffice it to say everyone involved is pissed.

LA Fire Department HazMat crews responded to a strange chemical odor inside a Panorama City apartment complex on Monday. Fortunately LAFD personnel were able to treat and assist several residents who suffered ill effects of the unknown chemical. Too bad the LA City Council is cutting the Valley's only HazMat crew. Blogger Daniel Kroop reports that it's none other than Sleeping Greig Smith who wants to cut the Valley crews, much to the displeasure of LA's last decent Council Member, Paul Krekorian. Kroop correctly asks Sleepy's heir apparent, Mitchell Englander his view on his boss giving the middle finger to the Valley (who ran on the meme "It's about the Valley.")

It's Red Spot bloggin' back and fine after am take a very made hiatus in Summer. THE BLOGGER FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE BLOGGIN' MARTINI BRACING GODFATHER, Mailander Terrace however could not resisted when composing a true cut and paste LosFelizObserving well known impersonation of the matter subject previously discussed (pasted).

Congressional candidate Mattie Fein is seeking to oust entrenched multi-millionaire candidate Jame Harman who never met a Ahmadinejad she didn't like. Fein has set the internets abuzz with a brilliant online ad that's a well done parody of Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. The bloggin' Young SFV Democrat formerly known as SHERMAN OAKS CITY NERD GUY (sorry still had a little residual Red Spot after that last one) calls the Republican ad "silly" but admits it could be effective in getting attention.

Why LA is going to hell - hedonistic, narcissistic, brain dead young people engage in self-aggrandizing stupid events.

And finally, no one (or is it noone?) cares.

Christ Almight, Mayor Sam,

What kind of a Republican would not mention that William Saxbe died.

I understand that you like to present yourself as a Republican, and that may or may not be true. But as someone who is supposed to be tuned into news, Saxbe's passing should be a no brainer for you.

Work harder at getting better.

The vast majority of people that live in the immediate area of Sunset Junction do not like or want the festival. The organizer Michael McKinley is a certified jerk. It is all about money for him. Lots of bands would play for a fraction of what he pays and the cost to vendors to partake is high. That $20 entry fee sucks.

I'll go anywhere in the city and sign any petition, sight unseen, to get Phil J. on the ballot for some position, somewhere -- so he'll have LESS time to hang around this blog and weigh in on every G-D subject here.

Geez, on one recent thread he wrote EVERY OTHER POST -- all of them 3-times the size of the ones he was responding to. (In fact I think one time he was having a debate with himself . . . and LOSING -- sadly enough, but that's to be expected).

Mayor Sam I would PAY MONEY to have a t-shirt with that photo of Smith with the words "He Sleeps While the Valley Stinks"

The picture of Sleeping Smith won't be made into a tee shirt because Mayor Sam didn't take the picture.

Actually, considring I have my master's degree, a successful blog and a great career at a Fortune 100company, I'd describe myself as a hedonistic, narcissistic, OVER EDUCATED young person engaging in self-aggrandizing stupid events. The rest of the people at the Hollywood party though were the professional party set, so I cannot speak for them on whether or not their brains are dead, lol. Either way, thanks for the link as it appears a lot of your readers were curious to read about such goings on.

Time to photo-shop that picture and give credit to Smith. Wonder how many people realize that isn't Rosendal sleeping on the job.
