Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Monday

Advertising Age points out that the VillarSalinas scandal has not exactly hurt Telemundo. Ever since it was disclosed the Mayor was boinking one of their star reporters, ratings have gone up. Yea, same for us but is this a good way to do it?

In light of the bridge collapse in Minneapolis last week both the City and County of Los Angeles has ordered various bridges to be inspected to ensure something like that doesn't happen here. I'm glad they're doing it, but why does it take a tragedy to move us to action?

LA CityWatch reports that organizers of the effort to recall Councilman Jack Weiss are using Zev's mayoral campaign stump speech as well as recent comments by City Planning Director Gail Goldberg to bolster their case against Wacko Jacko.

It's not a new situation but looks like the San Fernando Valley is not getting its fair share of police resources. So much so that five of the six City Council members who represent the Valley have asked for a report from the LAPD on how many officers actually serve the area. Hmmm, time to get secession brewing again?

As Joseph Mailander has pointed out, there are some innovative market based strategies for providing affordable housing. The Whittier Daily News reports that the City of LA and other municipalities are considering encouraging pocket sized condos and apartments that could be sold at a low price point. This is excellent news.

I mentioned it briefly in this post here, but for some time now I've been quietly working on a new blog project, that is a neighborhood blog for the NoHo Arts District. Writing under my own real nom de plume of Michael Higby with no vestiges of the old, dead Republican Mayor, the blog covers what's going on here in our village as well as what I think of it (as if you care). So far joining me is NoHo native Video Louis Elovitz with stories of NoHo history and things to be. Check out Downtown NoHo Times at http://downtownnoho.blogspot.com/

And finally, apparently Al Sharpton can't get any traction in New York, so he may be moving to Chicago to run for Mayor of the Windy City. What's next? Jesse Jackson running for Governor of California or Newt Gingrich as Mayor of LA?

uH, DUH! I predicted on this very blog, but won't go back and repaste, that she'll be a curiosity factor for some time. Of course, both Telemundo exes and reporters and -- with help from the little Unger woman -- have also shown what the Mexican public knew all along: the very idea of objectivity is a sham.

BUT don't dump this all on the Mayor WHO IS NOT MY GUY TRUST ME but on the whole scam of Mexican media, and how the fool the poor illiterate and largely illegal,public.

If Telemundo put out the press release that their ratings have gone up I wouldn't believe them.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen (Tips hat and bows low):

Sots, what would you say if the Neighbourhood Councils all over the City of Los Angeles started advocating for Valley secession? After all, that's why NC's were created, savvy? But since the Powers That Be are hell bent on ignoring NC's, perhaps this might shake things up a bit. But let's talk about something else, shall we?

Today we have a luncheon date with Madame Wu, infamous City Hall keeper of many secrets, if you will, who wishes to discuss something with us. It appears that while many City Hall employees were told that there is no money to justify even a COL increase in their paychecks, there are rather substantial increases for certain folks who knew certain things about certain people (like affairs, bad behaviour by wives, etc.) and kept mum about it all...and were actually seen misleading other folks whose job it is to ask questions about that sort of thing. (Sighs) Loyalty has is rewards, savvy?

Madame Wu apparently has raw data, eye witnesses and bona fide evidence that she wishes to share. (Smiles at Madame Wu) So sots, what say you? (Whispers) It's in the tea leaves, savvy?

I seriously love Capt. Jack's posts. I love trying to figure them out. So I'm gonna guess it was Professor Plum with a Candlestick in the Library.

Good afternoon Zuma (sits in chair and puts napkin on lap as Madame Wu pours tea):

The parlour maid is not Madame Wu, but Madame Wu knows the parlour maid's secret(s). And that shoe, if you will, has been defying gravity for some time, savvy? (Smiles as Madame Wu hands Capt. Sparrow a cup of tea).

Madame Wu, what say you?

"我是誰, 您是? 吳女士肯定將做。客廳傭人我不是, 但是客廳傭人欠她的位置對sot".

(Takes cup of tea and sips. Smiles with satisfaction and whispers) Yes, the answer is in the tea leaves.

I can understand why Zuma would be waiting for that shoe to drop. My own dogs love rolling on smelly things.

No, Sir Jack... 'twas Col. Mustard with the lead pipe in the kitchen - or the butler did it mayhap, with the mayor as his accomplice?
