This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.

HONEY, I’M HOME! (Thanks to the leadership of the African-American-governed City of Inglewood)— You know what else needs to be boycotted? The returning Los Angeles Rams (What about protesting the return of the Raiders Fan Base via AB 109 and Prop 47?). For some unknown reason, the Rams left us 20 years ago and settled into a new life in St. Louis (Via a Gold-digging Widow, married for the Eight Time) . I’m wholeheartedly in support of having a football team in Los Angeles, but I want it to be any team except the Rams (The rant of a Raider Lover?). The Rams is like a wayward husband who leaves his wife and moves in with another woman and then decides 20 years later to return to his wife (Wrong analogy Betty, it was a Gold-digging ex, who's husband went for a swim ......., and she becomes a LA-hating NFL Owner)! So how do the jilted residents of Los Angeles react to this? Like, crazy people! (Have you been to the Black Hole lately, Betty?) They’re happy and are welcoming the Rams “home” with open arms. That’s unnatural (what has become "natural" is losing records for the Raiders ......, and shorter incarceration times for its fans). Think about it. Is there any woman alive whose husband up and left her, moved in with another woman, and decided 20 years later to leave his woman and return to his wife, who eagerly welcomes him back! (Betty, how many Olympic-caliber swimmers such as Carroll Rosenbloom, drown in shallow waters ......., and then have their wife inherit a NFL Team?) No such sane woman exists (But Inglewood was inviting). I hate the Rams and I hope they lose every game they play (and may you enjoy the return of a fan base ......, without a team).

Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-CA) appears to be spending a lot of time with his lawyers lately. In the last three months, his campaign committee spent $131,470 on “legal services” with five separate law firms, according to new campaign finance records. The legal expenses, which are more than Rep. Cárdenas’ campaign spent in the three previous quarters combined, suggest that a federal investigation involving one of his aides has intensified.
In April 2015, Gabriela Marquez, the top staffer in Rep. Cárdenas’ district office, informed the House of Representatives that she had been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury. Roll Call reported at the time that Marquez had been questioned about whether staffers in Rep. Cárdenas office did campaign work on official time. Politico reported that the FBI was focusing on work Marquez did for other campaigns, not for Rep. Cárdenas.
“If a person moved to the city now and heard Mayor Eric Garcetti talk, they’d assume he’s a member of the Tea Party,” Riordan said in a statement. “He isn’t doing anything for the poor but helping the rich get richer -- through these zoning deals on land development.”
To respond to your criticism of Councilman Cedillo creating a parking area for Plaza de la Raza. What’s wrong with that? I am a long time resident and community advocate who still resides in the area around Lincoln Park, Hazard Park, and El Sereno and I’ve been around long enough to see both the good and the bad in our community. This parking area is a good thing for OUR COMMUNITY. It provides our community with a whole variety of programs in the arts that would otherwise not be available to our residents. We loved our old Boat House but if it were to be used for something else, Plaza fulfills it in a very positive manner. The video that you showed is so misleading to viewers about all the free parking space around the park. The truth is that there is little community parking on most days, especially weekdays. Between the DMV, Forever 21, and USC Health Science using up all the community parking and access to the park, their leaves no parking for the residents until after 6pm weekdays. So the loss of a little green space is certainly alright with me. Leave the few positive aspects of our community in peace. If you want to use your blog constructively, look at the other side of the park where all the community parking to access the Lincoln Park is being taken up daily by USC employees/students for free.

Raymond Rios,Proving you wrong about “the lack of parking” is already done – I’ve filmed, photographed, and documented the open parking in numerous free lots and on the surrounding streets around Lincoln Park.The question I have for you: how many folklorico classes do I have to teach before I can drive into the middle of a public park?Why can’t people in wheelchairs have the $5,000 needed to bring access to the park up to the bare minimum of access standards?The users of the Plaza are a nasty, entitled, group of snobs when it comes to their place in this community. You teach culture and the arts? Great! Please stop ruining the park grounds!!!\
This week, California Department of Motor Vehicles officials released Assembly Bill 60 statistics for the month of November, as well as totals since the program was implemented on January 2, 2015. The program has been very successful. In November alone, 26,000 AB 60 driver licenses were issued. And from January 2 to November 30, 574,000 AB 60 driver licenses have been issued. A license is not issued until the applicant proves identity and residency with qualifying documents or through secondary review, passes a written knowledge exam, and completes a behind-the-wheel drive exam.
