Los Angeles Opera asked for and received a $14-million emergency loan from Los Angeles County on Tuesday to keep it afloat through the middle of next year.
I'M NOT POSTING THE REST OF THE STORY, OR LINKING TO IT. BECAUSE THAT'S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW:
BECAUSE THE WORDS "OPERA" AND "EMERGENCY" NEVER HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN EMERGENCY WHEN THE ISSUE IS OPERA!!! AND THANK GOODNESS IT'S $14 MILLION FOR THE OPERA AND NOT SOME MINORITY MUSIC PROGRAM OR I WOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO SAY ANYTHING. BUT OPERA IS UPSCALE AND WHITE, SO I'M SURE WE'RE ALL IN AGREEMENT HERE!
ZEV YARSLOBSKY, MARK RIDLEY-ALLEN RIPPLE, GLORIA DUMLINA, DON "OBE-DUMB" KNABE APPROVED THIS. I DIDN'T READ THE REST, BUT I'M SURE MIKE ANTONOVICH HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS.
So to Zev the Bumbling Idiot, Gloria, Mark, Don and any other now un-electable clown who voted "yes" on this...I HOPE YOU AND ALL OF YOURS SUFFER HARDSHIP IN THE HOLIDAY SEASON AND HAVE ALL KINDS OF PERSONAL PROBLEMS IN THE NEW YEAR. (I know your problems will NEVER be financial cause you're a bunch of shady, greedy, grubby-fingered mutherfuckers...so your hardships will have to be something else. HERE'S TO YOU HAVING THEM!"
