It had to kill The Los Angeles Wave, the pit where Ugly Betty Pleasant wallows in her mud, to report that the District Attorney's office cleared Councilman Bernard Parks of bogus charges he had pulled a Richard Alarcon and wasn't living in his District. The DA's Public Integrity Unit said it found no merit in the claims that Parks had filed fraudulent voter registration affidavits. I bet Betty is wetting her pants just about now she's so damn mad at that awful racist cracker District Attorney! Doesn't he know she OWNS the Black Community? Anyway speaking of Ugly Betty next week we'll have some stories about some friends she has praised that previously published reports so that they are not so praiseworthy. And if Betty doesn't like it she kiss my enormous but shrinking white ass. And sadly it's not just Betty; the LA Weekly is going to owe Bernie an apology too.
The Mayor is back to his hob-nobbing ways. He's going to be hosting a big fashion hoo-haw at The Beverly Center along with Vogue magazine. Villareventsa will have access to as much pollo, vino and fashion models as he can get his hands on. But do not fret - the Mayor says this is to stimulate the economy. Not sure about that but it is a stimulus of one sort or another.
Speaking of the Mayor he got some good news. His Partnership for LA Schools is going to receive $27 million in Federal funds. Now here's the question: will it go to teachers or will it go for bullshit?
The City Council is being recalled! Well it's not this recall but a real one in the City of Bell where residents are saying BASTA to the free spending City Council there.

The MTA Library Blog marks the 50th anniversary of the development of the Metro System. Though the system took thirty years before even one train rolled, the original plan would have had a 150 miles of track built and complete by 1980 at a cost of $500 million. Lots of pictures and docs here.
Speaking of Metro the folks at Metroblogging have a snarky response to MTA's tweet on how to open a closed train door (which are being kept closed while waiting at the station to keep heat out).
