Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Monday

As the City of LA and AEG get more serious about demolishing a portion of the Los Angeles Convention Center to build an NFL stadium in Downtown LA, competing stadium builder Ed Roski is firing his local lobbying team.  It's a race to the finish to see which billionaire can lure an actual team to their site.

The LA Marathon continued on despite a massive downpour.  Thousands of runners were later treated for hypothermia and 25 were sent to local hospitals for additional care.

Unsuccessful CD4 candidate Stephen Box writing at Griffith Park Wayist is against NBC's expansion plans in Universal City while well known super-greenie Bill Haller is for it.  Incidentally, Haller has tossed out a potential platform for his own run for Mayor.

Census data out on LA will lead to some significant changes to the boundaries of LA's City Council districts.  Eric Garcetti's district sees a net loss of residents while Dennis Zine, Greig Smith and Richard Alarcon experienced growth (which is interesting because we know of at least one CD7 resident who apparently moved to CD2).

Yesterday's rain, and the weather still on it's way, may do more harm than what has been indicated so far. It was noted and broadcasted, how many suffered the chilly tempatures during the Marathon. Is there any good reason to be out in the rain, that possibly holds traces of radiation from the Japan incident?
I have not received any confirmation, but it only makes sense that the natural disaster that took place over a week ago in Japan, may hold stronger negative effects on our residents than we may think. To have hundreds, perhaps thousands of Citizens out in a contaminated down pour is much more than the hazard then 'being cold'.
Wait for a couple of weeks, closer to months and we may see that some of the Marathon runners will coomplain of symptoms that indicate that this weekends rain posed light but true health hazards, reflective of the incident that is taking place half way around the world. Any runner thinking they are doing this as a measure of 'Good Health', may realize that they have exposed themselves directly to unhealthy conditions that show no effects at this time.
To all those reading here, don't think that there will be no recorded impacts in Los Angeles realting to the disaster which took place in Japan. We need to be more aware of the potential dangers, and take actions that protect us, rather than thinking that everything is okay. If you feel that the negative impacts are minimal, you stand correct, but none the less, more than necessary.

Is there anything in the world that could convince you that you are unnecessarily concerned about the dangers from fallout?

What did you do this weekend, sit at home with tin foil on your head?

If you don't believe all the doctors who have been interviewed by the media, then go to www.epa.gov/radiation and look at the readings from the detectors yourself.

What does that have to do with the CLARTS fund in CD 14, or with Scott Johnson's Huizar fetish?

Oh, you allow other stuff on this board. OOPS!!

OK, I admit this is off topic, but a really interesting phenomena over at Ron Kaye LA's blog.


Ron posted an 'up piece' on the city attorney "An Hour With Carmen Trutanich" featuring a couple of videos of Trutanich at a recent meeting of the Sherman Oaks Homowners Association.

Well, first off, an hour with Trutanich? I'd rather have my fingernails pulled! But the interesting thing is the number of hugely negative comments that the once popular San Pedro lawyer got. Not a single favorable comment.

Time's achangin' ...

Thanks for the nod, Michael. I don't think my campaign for mayor is going very well. I did the whole textbook-announcement-on-the-front-lawn thing, but the neighborhood cat didn't seem too interested.
