Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Monday

Friday, Mayor Villaraigosa was selected to serve as the President of the US Conference of Mayors.  First perk, an appearance on Meet the Press.

In a move that would delight Ron Swanson of TV's Parks and Recreation, the City of Los Angeles is considering private management for the Los Angeles Zoo.  LA is the last of the big cities to manage a city zoo; and the costs are climbing too high for the cash strapped local government.

On the other hand, the Clowncil is advocating public ownership for the beleaguered Los Angeles Dodgers Major League Baseball team. The Daily Breeze editorializes the idea is a fantasy, indeed, it is.

Conan O'Brien is serious about renaming a run-down street in Van Nuys after himself.  Councilman Paul Krekorian, in whose district the street is in, has offered to work with the ginger headed TV comic.

If the Mayor was man enough to have been a Veteran of our Military he wouldn't be saying to get out of the War. Great, get out of the war so we can give terrorists an open invitation to strike the US. The Mayor is an idiot. He can't even take care of his own City and yet has the audacity to criticize Congress. He is the last person to be speaking about Weiner.

If Tony was a high school drop out in 1970 and a failing student some time later at UCLA, wouldn't that make him ellgible for the Vietnam draft? Weren't all draft boards notified of school drop outs? Did Tony pull a poor man's version of a George W. Bush here?
