Score another major endorsement (if tepid) for San Pedro's LAPD Senior Lead Officer Joe Buscaino as the Los Angeles Times Editorial Board graced the first time political aspirant with its nod of approval
to replace now Congresswoman Janice Hahn as CD 15's City Council rep. But lets make no false allusions about the insular elites that comprise the Old Gray Hag on Spring Street's Editorial Board, being enamour with Buscaino's grasps of the issues. Far from it, the Times scribes took both Buscaino and Assembly Warren Furutani to task for not being specific in regards to their stated questions. But in hindsight, the Times in endorsing Buscaino, with its journalistic story budget of dialog as documentation, can create a template that holds all officeholders accountable in the future, something that is six year and two mayoral elections overdue in Los Angeles print media.
