** We are often accuse by those (mostly "Huizzynistas") of keyboarding a constant negative narrative regarding the actions of the "Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee (that is called Satire)". But pardon the momentary straying from our normal sardonic mindset as we heap positive praise on the level-heading reasoning, via CD 13 City Councilman Mitch O'Farrell, regarding the proposed scheme to convert a diesel-soiled, Inter-modal Rail Yard, into the possible, 2024 Olympic Athletes Village.
When the proponents/supporters of Los Angeles bid to host the 2024 Olympics disclosed the details behind their bid to host the Games, the most audacious (and expensive) part of the proposal, was the obvious, LA River Restoration-inspired Olympic Village scheme.
But while most local Officeholders remain silent regarding the proposed Olympic Village location, Councilman O'Farrell last week, stated the following ........, "I do not see a pathway for using the ... yard" for the 2024 Games .........., and the background for his comments. Councilman Mitch O'Farrell told a City Council committee Wednesday that it could cost up to $2 billion to buy the rail site, conduct an environmental cleanup and relocate the yard — even before any construction would begin. According to his estimate, that could triple the projected cost.
** We are less than 48 hours away from our appointed time of giving Thanks to those who we truly cherish. In that spirit, we would be remiss in not noting humorist musings of Downtown News Editor and "Scribe of Wit" Jon Regardie, who again, keyboards a main course of wit, and side dishes of satire in his latest .........., "The Best # MayoralThanksgivingEver"
