It sure would be nice to know what the city council is discussing when watching on TV. No longer putting agenda item/description on screen.

Zuma Dogg Friday Morning Thoughts (Pretty Cranky, but not as bad as you'd think!)
[Pictured: Bitter and cranky in ANY setting, just the way you like it.]
Not trying to be difficult when I say I can't really crank out the new LIVE ZD web show and blog posts when flat broke. $5 bucks is enough. RELEASE THE BRAKE: ZD feels like a sports car, ready to open up on the autobahn today, but the emergency brake is on. $5 can release brake! I WOULD LOVE TO: A song on the jukebox costs a buck. Wind up the @ZumaDogg toy for $5 bucks and I'll rant like crazy on LIVE webcam show. NEW COUNCIL BAMBOOZLE: During broadcast of meeting, no longer putting agenda item description on screen. You don't know what item is about. FOR THE RECORD: I notified @EricGarcetti's office MONTHS AGO of jobless construction workers loitering in Sliverlake area CAUSING PROBLEMS! Seems strange a municipality can put moratorium on rent increases? How about preventing restaurants from raising menu prices? I want to tweet about some other things besides L.A. City Hall. When I return, hopefully I will be doing that. TIME FOR SOME POP CULTURE! The little agenda game I just saw Jan Perry & Eric Garcetti pull reminded me of that little shell game I used to see on NYC streets. Bmbzl. ERIC GARCETTI, so nervous at today's council meeting he's chewing gum like a cow on speed. SLOW DOWN, Bro! What are you so nervous about? When Jan Perry says, "Can we forego the reading of the item by the city clerk in the interest of time..." SOMETHING VERY SHADY IS HAPPENING! My deepest sympathy and regrets to those across the city who are forced to have to sit and discuss city business with Janice Hahn. Sorry! I am simply enjoying the final moments before the inevitable: Complete ZD meltdown over being stuck without $10 to make it through day. UGH! AND NOW, on with the countdown: It's Friday - a beautiful day at Venice Beach...'m not gonna sit here all day and Tweet about L.A. politics. PLEASE ASK CITY ATTORNEY CARMEN TRUTANICH about the Wall St "alternative investment" bamboozle. HE FILED ANTI-TRUST LAWSUIT! (Stay ignorant) Until I hear another activist use the term"alternative investments" as a BIG City Hall issue to be addressed, you are simply a clown to me. The PENSION REFORM ZUMA DOGG is talking about is NOT STRUCTURAL! YOU SIMPLY WANT TO CONTINUE TO IGNORE WHAT LACERS SAID CAUSED BUDGET MESS. Someone said, "The pension problem is not unique to L.A." THE WAY VILLAR'S CRONIES FUNNELED MONEY INTO "ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS" IS, THOUGH! Some activists want to DENY LACERS "alternative investments" as to what put us in this crisis, it's almost like you have motive to deny it. If you didn't catch/see something at a council meeting, and you missed the most critical information, just pretend it's not really a factor. YOU WEREN'T FOLLOWING LACERS THEN: When I say something based on facts presented by LACERS PLEASE do not embarrass yourself by disputing ZD. Wish I could do something today. Kinda on a short leash. People are busy. Besides money, need someone to work on stuff with.
