Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Monday

Dream with me!

Bloomberg profiles Villaraigosa hatchet man Austin Beutner who says that LA needs to "grow up and focus on things that matter." In the piece former Mayor Dick Riordan says Beutner could be a possible candidate for Mayor in 2013.  That probably won't sit well with Riordan's buddies at the Clean Sweep campaign. Oh, Eli Broad agrees too.

Jane the Joker on Clownman's jihad against pot shops: "We're trying to be proactive."

A bunch of NIMBYS and Dangerous Enemies of Freedom (and prosperity) in Stupido City have been fighting to block NBC from moving thousands of high paying entertainment jobs from Burbank to the City of Los Angeles at the Universal City Metro Station.  Their economic terrorism has resulted in a delay to the NBC project however the Conan O'Brien debacle is at least providing an opportunity for NBC to make a partial move. The studio created for the red headed comedian's version of the NBC at Universal Studios institution is being retrofitted for the KNBC local news operation to move over along with some of their tabloid entertainment news shows.  NBC has sold their historic Burbank facilities to developers and will eventually have to move out.

Betty Pleasant is finding picking friends based on their enmity to Bernard Parks isn't working out for her.

Emergency Preparedness Month kicked off last week.  The LA Fire Department Blog has good tips on being prepared for good sanitation and being safely and comfortably dressed in a disaster.

Michael you're still friends with Joe, Valley Doll and Trujillo?

You really should be a fly on the wall when we all go for drinks after the DPSFV monthly membership meeting.

I believe "Obese teabag" was the term used.

Higby you know nothing about the Universal Master Plan (or evolution or dream plan or whatever they spin it now.)

This would add 30,000 cars a day to the Valley. Do you want that?

Republican assholes like you shill for a right wing mega-corporation such as NBC like mice take to cheese.

This is a bad plan that creates zero jobs. We must and will stop it.

Thankfully Tom LeBonge is showing courage and leadership on this issue.

I told all of Los Angeles about the budget crisis two years ago!

While you're pondering that, go to the XYZ Cafe in Venice for pricey coffee and free WiFi, but only from 2am to 4am.

And now back to the reggae and ska!

NBC Universal is a disaster waiting to happen. It will require over 1,000 acre feet of potable water and around 600 acre feet of purple pipe water A YEAR! That's just the water end of it!That project will crush the infrastructure in that area and place more of a burden on the infrastructure for the rest of the City.

7:13am... If I were DPSFV member I'd want to remain anonymous too!

If you're going to call names have some guts and show who you are.

Speaking of dangerous NIMBYs, check out what a small mob of pitch-fork carrying NIMBY's - most of then also tree-hugging globalwarming alarmists and (not-so-)progressives are doing to a business that is moving ahead with legal solar panels on it's OWN private, barren property above Highland Park.

Green technologies are fine with them as long as they don't have to LOOK at them from their expensive hillside homes across the river in the PRMW (People's Repubic of Mt. Washington).

Suprise that Re Spot hasnot gotted into this debate?

There's a $10 word for that syndrome, it's called... H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y.

It goes way beyond NIMBY "not in my back yard" to not where I can see it, smell it, drive by it, or hear the wind whistle through it. Also, not here it might block my view of something I like to look at (that doesn't even belong to me), or require removing something I think belongs on someone else's property.

At some point, you start to wonder just what the point of having private property rights is anymore.
