L.A. City News ONLINE NEWSPAPER EDITION [L.A. Council Declares, "CRA/LA IS DEAD!" - Read Mainstream News Coverage & Watch ENTIRE Item ONLINE, HERE! Cued Up To Exact Starting Point!] - via LACityNews.com
Here is ITEM #13 for L.A. City Council Agenda for 01/12/12. Aka: Best Agenda Item EVER! "The CRA is DEAD," to quote L.A. Council President Herb Wesson. Now that, "Ding-Dong, the wicked witch is dead" (No pun/no offense, Chris Essel), maybe the money will be spent on people, instead of building. Maybe some will be spent on services like trash removal and street repairs, instead of to billionaire's crony projects. I guess we'll just have to live with Downtown and Garcetti's district with the CURRENT buildings we have. CUED UP TO THE ITEM. As Steve Tyler once said, "Just Press Play." I DID notice, Council President Herb Wesson said they moved the item from committee to the main council floor for discussion. But, when members of the public asked about, "public comment," after council had wrapped THEIR discussion, the President (Tom LaBong, sitting in as 3rd Stooge in line) said public comment had already been held in committee. (You mean the committee Wesson just admitted on TV was moved to the floor, that you just said they already had upstairs, already? FORGIVE ME IF I'M CONFUSED AND IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU DIDN'T TAKE PUBLIC COMMENT.) CLICK "Zuma Dogg - LA City News" link for FULL newspaper format.
