It's All A Gag

I was really getting scared there for a while but eventually a few of you figured it out. Happy April Fools Day dum dums. We set this up for days and only at the last minute did anyone figure it out. We're even surprised some folks took the bait but some folks smartly hedged their bets.

Oh - and by the way we never lied. We promised a major change and said that this blog is history. Indeed, both are right (well the TEMPLATE is history). On Monday, we're debuting a new template (time for a change) and a few new writers are joining the blog. Come back Monday for all of that. In the meantime, enjoy Orville for the weekend.

Blog away dum dums!

I thought James Acevedo had closed you guys down given that you never followed up on the crap that went down in San Fernando

Humor - what a concept. When I first read that Mayor Sam was leaving us, I was bummed. Where was I going to get the real scoop on LA fun and games .. but then someone pointed out what day he was leaving on - too funny!!

I'm glad the city hall blog isn't going anywhere, but I still hate April Fool's Day.

If it was Trujillo's joke - F you 4:27.

I like Michael so I'll change my mind if it was his idea.

We were ready to start collecting funds to bail you out. The East San Fernando Valley enjoys this forum as one way to move us out of the Acevedo grip that has for years taken us down into the cesspool we're now in. Those days are over.
Need the jokes and laughs you provide, it keeps it all in perspective.

I here that Jane Harmon got a quite scare today from a group of organized grass roots Dems in the South Bay. Warren Furutani got a serious reality check too. This promises to be an unusual campaign season. It's a new day baby. No guarantees!!

Re: "Return to class, mayor advises" (March 28):
Actions taken now by Mayor Antonio “Photo-op" Villaraigosa, Police Chief William Bratton and Sheriff Lee Baca, to crack down on truant student protesters are too little, too late. For these students to not have been arrested and fined for truancy and breaking the law by impeding traffic and marching without proper permits was gross dereliction of duty. All three should be censured, recalled and thrown out of office. Compounding his unconscionable behavior, by standing on the steps of City Hall, condoning and approving illegal immigration and promoting L.A. as a sanctuary city, the mayor insulted every “legal" resident and once again proved why he failed the California State Bar Exam several times. He has no understanding of the difference between “illegal" and “legal."

Guess who Villaraigosa is serving best so far...Himself, that's who.
During his union-supported campaign for mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa promised to bring together and represent all the people, despite his Assembly history of representing primarily the unions, environmentalists, activists and Latinos...during his first eight months as mayor of the second largest city in the United States, he has mostly represented the unions, environmentalists, activists and the Latinos. His appointments to the too numerous city commissions, many of which are a waste of time and money, include a disproportionate number of union leaders, environmentalists, activists and liberal attorneys.
