LAUSD Superintendent DAVID BREWER Delivers Inspiring Leadership Speech At Annual Meeting (Passed ZD's "Deming Checklist" with an "A+")

Oh no...Zuma Dogg may now only be the #2 top Deming expert in the City after LAUSD Superintendent David Brewer, III delivered his (first) Annual Meeting speech to LAUSD educators, yesterday.

As skeptical as I am of the new mayoral-backed majority school board, I am here to say, if nothing else, Superintendent Brewer did what ZD has probably never actually seen delivered in a real life setting: An inspiring leadership speech that passed the Deming checklist flawlessly. For those of you who hear me speak about Deming, and how his methods need to be implemented and are maybe wondering what that means in the real world; start by watching Brewer's speech on this video and the entire speech is posted below:

And Superintendent Brewer, thank you so much for showin' suckaz how it's done!


Thank you fellow superintendent board members, my teammates. Thank you, Jack, for coming. And thank you all for being here.

ZD, I love ya baby, but read today's LA Slimes article about how UNINSPIRING the attendees found Brewers' schpiel. Villaraigosa loses again.

With all due respect Zuma .... after reading the LA Slimes today ....I don't think one speech is going to do much. With all the payroll problems that are still ongoing at LAUSD as well as the removal of Vince Carbino from Santee High, it seems that more than talk is needed to solve these LAUSD problems.

LAUSD will be running off the best teachers to other districts because of the payroll problems and they are firing a principal just before the school year starts. Not a good move. It looks like the new year will not be getting off to a good start.

It's like Villar hired a demographic instead of a problem solver. No disrespect to Mr. Brewer, but where are his qualifications in running a school district? He's as qualified as a former Governor. And we all know how that turned out. But this is what happens when your mayor is a cheatin' street thug in a suit.

These posts are so demonstrative of how the blind lead the blind around Zuma Dogg.

Not only did Antonio not hire Brewer, he was hired over the voiced objection of the Mayor by a School Board that had lost its majority and several members of which were leaving in a number to turn the survivors into the minority. It was the last act of a bunch of losers.

Zuma Dogg is blind leading the blind.

Zuma, you are too kind.

I try to follow yuor words and advice, and clearly yuour teaching me to understand the brilliant Professor Deming has made a huge inmpact on the LAUSD, the City of Los Angeles, The State of California, The United States of America, and the entire Northern Hemisphere.

Let me go on - I think your teachings have affected world wide communication, even perhaps intergalactic communication as well.

Man, you are the new Einstein!!

Thanks again for all your help and wisdom.

I didn't say Villaraigosa hired a demographic, I was referring to the school board. And, yes, I know they were "elected," although we all know that AV money was behind it.

It's not the blind leading the blind, you dope. It's us reading through the lines.

And while you're making such claims, how about backing it up by showing us some of Brewer's credentials for the job. As the kids in the LAUSD say, "he ain't got none relatable creds, yo."

Read the LA Slimes and see how he failed with the teachers. You know, the ones who aren't getting their PAYCHECKS. Word.

Speaking of LAT, while ZD is going after the Killer Whales and Big Sharks in affordable housing, LAT may be only going after the sardines. But these Killer Whales and Big Sharks like to have sardines for lunch too. These hungry big fish don’t want to miss anything. So as you find the sardines, you may accidentally expose these killer whales and big sharks.

Today’s LAT article (8/25/2007), “Housing agency fires auditor”, the electronic online version is now 3 paragraphs shorter than the printed version - missing the last 3 short paragraphs. 3 very short paragraphs missing. Wow!!! What is going on?

The online version:

One would think that it would be the other way around. A shorter version may be need to fit the printed page, and the electronic version would have no space limitation and can remain slightly longer. But, no, not here.

What is in the 3 missing paragraphs?


I am going to retype one missing paragraph (found in the printed paper):

“The Estrada Courts group, a nonprofit run out of an Eastside housing project, received four contracts collectively worth about $95,000. It has employed former City Councilman Richard Alatorre as a consultant.”

Richard Alatorre? The mentor and current senior advisor to Mayor V; and the mentor to and former boss of Robin K?

The remaining two paragrpahs named Gustavo Valdivia, the former staff member of current Councilman Jose Huizar; and also named former Councilman Nick Pacheco.

Did someone call LAT’s editor to remove those 3 paragraphs???

Perhaps the killer whales and big sharks are regarded as endangered species and need special protection? But we seem to have way too many of them in our waters already!

Brewer had nothing to do with the computer fiasco with the school. Ask Huizar who his friends were that got the contract? Ask Monica who her friends were? That problem began more than two years ago. Brewer is blamless. It is his job to clean up Huizar's mess.

6:12: You people blaming the Mayor for everything demonstrates your total ignorance as well as prejudice. Villar did NOT hire Brewer, the former school board did, particularly Marlene Kanter who said his strong personality and "charisma" would counterbalance the Mayor. So MAV is just stuck with him. This "charisma"
offensive without substance worked on ZD, anyway. But everyone has been saying the vacation is over, his lack experience is showing.

Soon this will pass; the bloggers here are tired of the fool, and the electeds are as well.

Wal-Mart threatens the wages, health-care, benefits, and livelihoods of workers across the country and around the world. Whether you work or shop at Wal-Mart, the giant retailer’s employment practices affect your wages. Wal-Mart leads the race to the bottom in wages and health-care. The company’s disregard for the law and systematic suppression of the basic democratic rights of workers is undermining fundamental American values.

Wal-Mart is so large and its market share is so huge that other retailers, especially grocers, use its competition as an excuse to try to match its below-market wages, bad benefits and lack of health care coverage.

Wal-Mart is also so large that it can dictate prices, and losses, to its suppliers, in turn driving those companies’ workers’ wages down, or driving the firms out of business.

This post by Zuma, is all about Zuma, as are the comments all about Zuma.


Because Zuma, his butt boy Matt and maybe one other fool are all egocentric fools.

We "haters" need to boycott his posts and teach him and Higby the lesson that really no one cares about the content of what he posts.

The Dogg beating needs to end; Mickael Vick is going to jail for it, so let's just abandon this mutt instead of drowning him each time.

Zuma Dogg, get a black Gucci head piece, a little expensive but you would look cool in it. Next wear a black long sleeve Armani light weight turtle neck over some Black Bijan jeans and finally some high-top Chanel black and white canvass sneakers - all the rage presently... on second thought, the hell with Rodeo Drive, park yourself in front of any Target store and save, not to many will be none the wiser.

What would be someone's motivation for claiming, falsely, that I am posting anonymous comments on this thread? I don't have the answer to that? But I can assure all readers that I have not posted anonymous comments here: I believe perhaps the person actually believes I am posting anonymously. That is even more sad. At least someone who knows it isn't me and lies about it is trying to be "strategic". This crybaby, loser, idiot is just plain pathetically wrong. You have no instincts loser...which is why you will never rise above this anonymous comment section.

With reference Brewer. He started as a swabbie in the U.S. Navy. He became an Admiral. That is the equilivant of running a very large 500 fortune comany. Please name anyone in LUSD, the City of Los Angeles administration etc, who have achieved as much?

Can Brewer solve the problems? If he can put the major fires out or quell them until a solution has been effected; he will survive. Think about the 8 points; its the receipe for success in any company IF PEOPLE FOLLOW IT.

Why don't you do something useful instead, like write long analysis of how you can help your new pal Zev fix the BOS and the County, or sell t-shirts to tourists. Chill.
