Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Tuesday

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.  Community activist Najee Ali who orignally supported the family of murdered teenager Jamiel Shaw, Jr. in their quest for justice and then later turned on them by claiming that Jamiel was murdered because he was a gangbanger is going to jail himself.  The LA Times reported that Ali plead guilty to charges of attempting to bribe a witness in a criminal case. Ali was sentenced to four years in prison.

City Controller Laura Chick will release her performance audit of the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services' Spay and Neuter Program Tuesday. Earlier this year, the Los angeles City Council adopted a mandatory spay and neuter ordinance which will go into effect in October.

The Daily News reports how local City elected officials are footing the bill for their travel to the Democratic National Convention in Denver.  Wendy Greuel and Bernard Parks are paying their own way. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Controller Laura Chick and City Council members Eric Garcetti and Janice Hahn have their supporters up for some "PayPal love."  Council Republicans Dennis Zine and Greig Smith do not plan to attend the Republican National Convention; with Smith telling the News one of the truest statements to come out of his mouth in some time, "that most in the GOP consider him a "RINO" - Republican in Name Only."

The National Black Republican Associationclaims that civil rights leader Martin Luther King was a Republican.  The organization has been putting up billboards around the country stating this claim and has plans to put up 50 such billboards around Denver during the Democratic convention.

This is a few days late thanks to Google but City Councilmen Bernard Parks and Tom LaBonge held a press conference at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to salute the Olympic Games in Beijing.  What the hell? Do they not have pressing issues in their community? Hey LeBong - you're my Clowncilman come on over here I'll show you several blocks overgrown with weeds and trash that you need to clean up.  Trust me, you're not in need of trying to find things to keep you busy.

Congrats to comedian Ellen DeGeneres to finding a young hot chick to marry.  The 50 year old former sitcom and current daytime talk star legally tied the knot with her longtime galpal, actress 35 year old Portia DeRossi at a ceremony at their Los Angeles home.

Wonder where they got the money $$$$$$$ to send these kids to China????

(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) August 4, 2008 - Today students from the entering ninth grade class of Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory High School ("Anahuacalmecac" ), a public charter high school opening this September in East Los Angeles,
arrived from participating in the first student cultural exchange delegation between Los Angeles and China sister schools in history.
Thirteen Anahuacalmecac students and several teachers visited sister school, Guangqumen Middle School, one of the top middle schools in Beijing, to deliver
L.A.U.S.D.'s recognition of the sister school relationship and finally meet Chinese students they
corresponded with throughout the school year while attending Anahuacalmecac' s middle school complement, Academia Semillas del Pueblo ("Semillas") , a successful
and highly innovative community-based k - 8th grade public
charter school in East Los Angeles.

"What fascinates us most about China is what we see of
ourselves in Chinese culture, people and places. Our
delegation has opened up a window through which our
students can better understand the world and their own
place in it," said Marcos Aguilar, Executive Director of
Semillas Sociedad Civil, a public non-profit and parent
organization to Semillas and Anahuacalmecac.

This really pisses me off! Taxpayers - REVOLT! This is not a 'school'...it's an indoctrination center for illegal alien Mechista Reconquistas! This is a prime example of why we should ban charter schools! They have their own communist agenda with NO oversight or supervision!

Communist China is a great place for them...LEAVE THEM THERE!!!!

The China visit should have opened their eyes to the reality of politics and life in a totalitarian state.

Would their brand of ideas on education- had they originally been members of the Chinese public instead of being in the United States- even be considered there?

The various freedoms that we have in the U.S. are not truly appreciated. Much of what is taken for granted by opponents of U.S. culture and politics would not be tolerated in other countries and could lead to imprisonment or worse.

The conditions that enable these people to even accomplish what they are doing and to voice their criticisms are uniquely part of the operation of the society that many of them clearly despise.
