Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Thursday
Happy Birthday wishes to CD 2 Councilman Paul Krekorian, from all of us here at Mayor Sam!
And Happy One Year Anniversary to the Health Care Reform Law! Still standing strong and fully funded!
SurveyLA is coming to North Hollywood! "SurveyLA has been conducting a citywide historical survey and is coming to North Hollywood and Toluca Lake soon. According to its website, it is looking for places that are important because of reasons such as architecture, city planning, landscape design, ethnic heritage, residential development, commerce or industry." Full story at North Hollywood-Toluca Lake Patch. No word yet if North Hollywood's Gateway Arch is considered significant, historical, or just embarrassing (see pic below).
|At least you can't miss it.|
Everyone's favorite predatory pricing, mom & pop shop destroying, vendor exploiting retailer, Wal-Mart, may soon face the largest sex discrimination lawsuit in U.S history! The decision to allow the class-action lawsuit to proceed is now in the hands of SCOTUS. If successful, the lawsuit could affect 2 million women and cost the big box billions of dollars!
Damn, why didn't I think of that? Sales of Emergency Bunkers are skyrocketing! From portable ones that run a few thousand to $20 million dollar "fit for a king" luxury hide-a-ways, the disaster protection business has never been better; "...U.S. companies selling doomsday bunkers are seeing sales skyrocket anywhere from 20% to 1,000%". And it's only March!
Finally, I hate sending people to this jerks blogsite but Phil Jennerjahn is in full homophobe/neanderthal mode today as he throws Republican Mayoral candidate Kevin James under the bus for simply supporting gay marriage and opposing the Mormon Prop 8 law.
Go witness the sputtering human trainwreck known as Phil "Dangerous Enemy of Brain Cells" Jennerjahn , but please don't do it if you just ate.
