Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Tuesday

Zuma Dogg will have an on the scene report later but Tuesday a big battle is brewing between Mayor Villaraigosa's bought and paid for school board members and the UTLA - a vote will be taken on whether or not to transform troubled Locke High School into a cluster of ten autonomous charter schools under the successful Green Dot banner. The battle gets interesting as Mayoral buddy and fellow Mirthala banger Fabian Nunez has declared a mini-war on charter schools which really aren't supported by his union buddies.

Media Daily News reports that despite the telenovela aspects of the VillarSalinas affair, the sordid tale is part of the growing influence of the Hispanic media. On the other hand the stinky mess has probably inflicted some battle damage on Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The Lofts at Cunard? Could be. An investor group has bought the rights to operate the Queen Mary and develop the watefront around it for $43 million. Well actually they plan to add hotels, shops and restaurants. But condos could be a cool addition!

Zev's Orange Line in the Valley is going to get some double-double buses that with seating for up to 100 passengers rivals some commuter airlines. How about stop screwing around with the bus and converting the damn thing to light rail. Better yet technology exists to run the Red Line up from below NoHo and down the Orange Line's right of way, creating seamless transportation from Downtown LA to the West Valley. Anyone want to step up? Nah, a good idea is too hard to implement.

And finally yet another politician has been arrested for being Gay while Republican. This time reports allege that Idaho Senator Larry Craig was trolling for penis in a Minnesota bathroom when police caught him. I'm with Tammy Bruce that these closeted cavemen who hate on gay people (and make it harder to make the GOP a big tent) should put up or shut up and that just because they're gay doesn't mean they have to sign on to ridiculous hate crime laws.

Sure, go ahead and make the Orange line a light rail, but you pay for it.
Yeah, I'm up at 3:25, but it's okay, I'm watching the lunar eclipse.

I'm also up watching and photographing the Lunar Eclipse. This science nerd is using his new telescope and new zoom lenses for his camera. Most people who aren’t into astronomy or science aren’t aware that today is the only total Lunar Eclipse of 2007, and probably think we are nuts.

HOw embarrassing now that Antonio spent all that money to get controll of lAUSD he will only have 2 schools. No wonder he's become a joke.
....The partnership falls short of Villaraigosa's initial goals of having a key role in running the nation's second-largest school district with direct control of three clusters of schools.

The mayor got state legislators to pass a law supporting his plans, but it was ultimately thrown out in the courts. Still, the partnership marks an end to two years of fighting and lawsuits - a period when Villaraigosa poured millions of dollars in contributors' money into the effort as well as getting a school majority elected that supports his goals

It's amazing to watch the midget mayor turning into the incredible shrinking man (mayor)!!! He is spiraling into oblivion!

Yesterday he looked like such a fool strutting around the freaky new 65' bus! I couldn't stop laughing!

I wonder if Tony even realizes everyone is shunning him????

Last week he said he was going to call his amigo, AG Alberto Gonzales, and ask him to remove Jim Hayes (the ICE agent who deported Elvira) from Los Angeles!!! I'm LMAO...his amigo is GONE! No more Mexicans in Washington, Tony! Guess what Tony, you will be the next Mexican to bite the dust!!!

BTW, methinks the 'mayor' is on drugs! Keep an eye on his speech pattern and his spaced out demeanor!!! You heard it here...first!

"Fellow Mirthala banger"?

Remember the the tape of the Howard Cosell imitator on the Jim Healy Show, who used to say "Jim Healy, that's your lowest shot ever"?

Of course, Jim used to cue the tape when he wanted to congratulate himself for a particularly biting comment.

"Mayor Sam, that's your lowest shot ever".

I had to agree with your recent comments on the average daily news content of the Daily Breeze.

On the other hand, they have scored pretty well recently with their editorial pages.

Note yesterday's editorial, "Budget deal siphons off gas-tax funds", and Tom Elias' column, "Bonds guarantee worse budget hassle next year".

Too bloody right.

7:12 - The mayor isn't on drugs, the mayor is drinking too much alcohol and San Onofre "drinking" water...

Actually, now that you mention it, Tony does look a bit chemically altered from time to time.

I'm no expert, but it looks more like some kind of "upper" than alcohol or San Onofre water to me.

I do notice the sort of haunted look on his face in between the normal manic smiles.

Or maybe it's just when he sees Mayor Sam or Dave Z. coming.

Don't think so. He's too consumed with himself to see the world around him.

DO NOT use the name of the great Jim Healy for any manner of support for Tony Villar or his buddies (or other fellow Mirthala bangers as Sam says).

Jim was a real American who stood for something. Tony Villar stands for himself and himself only.

Thank you.

the LAUSD board is now just a big ole catfight.
its unbelievable.
the mayor's trolls are steamrolling the issues.

poor Julie Korenstein and Marlene Canter. asking the valid questions, getting told that 2 hours is long enough discussion so the board is pushing through a health care issue that costs 35m yet they don't got the money.

and wow, Tamar galatzen just went against Flores Aguilar and Garcia.


so much contempt though that all these women have for each other.

It was only a matter of time before Tamar had to make a show of independence. But hey - she is neighbors with Mirthala right?
