Friday Free for All: Carmageddon Edition

Tips for surviving the mess courtesy of the folks at CurbedLA. I did not know that Sepulveda Blvd. will be open to locals only. And the boys at Live LA Saturday Night need to take note: Ventura Blvd. may be a nightmare.

The LA Times reports that to helm the Mulholland Bridge demolition project, a "steady hand" is needed.  Project Manager Mike Barbour is a veteran of the Marines, Navy and Caltrans with decades of engineering experience and even did a stint in Iraq.

Mayor Villaraigosa will participate in a Times video chat to answer your questions Friday afternoon.

The Sherman Oaks Galleria is located right next door to ground zero for Carmageddon.  To lure patrons the shopping complex will offer free parking, air conditioned movies, drink specials and food samples.

Patch details some of the history, culture and lore of the Sepulveda Pass, including it's use in film and television.  An old story told reportedly told by Lucille Ball tells that then actor Ronald Reagan claimed to have an encounter with aliens on the 405 who told him to go into politics.

The 405 is scheduled to open back up at 6:00 a.m. Monday morning.  If all goes well, however, it could open back up even earlier than that.

And finally, I found a way to avoid the whole thing. I'll be here, far, far from it all.

"Mayor Villaraigosa" and "video chat" should NEVER be used in the same sentence.

Tony Villar will, more likely than not, be the next Senator from CA.
While everyone is getting ready to send him off, he's establishing national ties for himself and build a coalition. He's making sure his donor base will be large and strong to keep possible formidable challengers at bay.
Feinstein is polling in the low 40s and will be 79 in Nov. 2012. The party will softly push her out.
And with Newsome waiting to be anointed the next Governor, Villar will cake walk.

And lets not kid ourselves, the CA GOP is not going to win the seat because the party will only get behind a true conservative ideologue.

Point being here, Tony Villar is plotting this move and no one seems to care or notice.

Senator Villaraigosa. It has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

Let's see if we can get Mayor Sam, ZD and Phil to back his opponent; that will make him a shoo-in.

In fact, what a great opportunity for Wacky Walter to run against him; go for it, Whacko!

Once again, let me remind you all: "He's Mayor - You're not."

Bad news for 6:26 AM. Antonio Villaraigosa will never hold an elected position, again. That's just a plain and simple fact you will have to learn to accept. It's written in certain stone.

7:58... yes that is true. According to his divorce Villaraigosa will never hold an elected office again.
Antonio Villar... now that's another story.

Clearly you folks don't understand Economics 101.

Corina Villaraigosa will do anything she can to help her Ex be gainfully employed. After all, he makes support payments to her and also is the father of her two children, who he also supports.

Were he to be unemployed, they would all suffer.

Ergo, she will cooperate as much as she needs to, as long as he keeps the checks coming.

Since many of you have really not held a well paying job for a long time, (no names to protect the fools), perhaps you have trouble understanding this simple concept.

Cherchez l'argent.
