Mid-Day Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Scene for Tuesday

"Old Gray Hag on Spring Street"
LA Weekly Blogger Dennis Romero is treading into LA Observed's Kevin "Westside White Guy" Roderick territory.
Normally anything that has to do with the LA Times, leaked emails, internal scribes doings and speculation on the ownership of LA's "Reigning Fishwrap of Record", is the bloggin domain of "Pulitzer".
But Romero somehow beat the "WWG" to this scoop via the Wall Street Journal (** direct links to the Wall Street Journal is a paid-for option).
Big question here if the speculation is true, who would want to purchase a "125 years + graying hag version of New York's Old Gray Lady"? Eli Broad? David Geffin? Fox? (the likes of Rutten, Skelton and the WWG cringe at that!).
But one way or another, late-life change is in the works for the "Old Gray Hag on Spring Street" 
Other News:
** We have a "bloggin fluff alert" via the "Stay at Home Blogger". The "Rodericklander of bloggin puff musings" that gave us the bloggin puff masterpiece "Jose Adelante", is back with "Like a River", a gushing (kinda like the increased 7-eleven beer and wine sales) profile of urban planning density guru CD 1 Councilman Ed Reyes.
** Advocates of "Corporate Welfareism" in Los Angeles and elsewhere have filed suit against "Governor Moonbeam II's" plan to use CRA money to fund essential services. Somewhere the likes of Eli Broad are smiling.
** Some 39 year old developer Matt Karatz is the replacement for Austin "Mini-Riordan II" Beutner as the Deputy Mayor for Economic Developement.
** Lastly, former CD 15 City Councilwoman Janice "Babs" Hahn becomes Congresswoman Janice "Babs" Hahn today.We will search to the far-reaches of the cybersphere to find commentary from Noel Weiss on this special occasion.

The Stay at home blogger is baffling. He writes a fluff piece on an idiot who has screwed the City on every planning issue whether it be SB1818, Marijuana or Billboards to mention a few. To call him a visionary and a planner is a disgrace. On the other hand the fool keeps writing about too much density and the homeowner/renter ratio in the city. Does he have a clue? Don't think so. Reyes is at the forefront of everything that is wrong with planning in the city, only nano seconds behind a bigger idiot - our Mayor. But, the Mayor never claimed to be a planner. Reyes is the only one who pretends to be one. He is neither a good politician or a planner. Just plain lucky.

Upon reflection, the safe course is not to engage in complete venacular white-washing of subject matter's political failings.

In LAUSD terms, terminate the ass-kissing.

6:42 AM, you must be new to this blog. This is how Red Spot always responds to his detractors. First he cobbles together a bunch of "big-sounding" words to form an incomprehensible sentence. When that doesn't work he insults your mom. Watch, it's coming next...
