HOLLYWOODHIGHLAND.ORG's GOAL FROM THE START OF MIKI'S AND MY OPERATION HAS BEEN TO BREAK A STORY OF NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL SCOPE WITH AN L.A. ORIGIN. THANKS TO A PUBLIC DISCUSSION DURING THE NOVEMBER METROLINK BOARD (SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA REGIONAL RAIL AUTHORITY} WHERE MATTERS REGARDING THE AGENCY'S LIABILITY EXPOSURE TO TERRORISTS' ACTS APPEARED OUTSIDE CLOSED SESSION FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE AMERICAN PUBLIC HAS RECEIVED A RARE  GLIMPSE INTO SO-CALLED "TERRORIST INSURANCE" AND HOW TAXPAYERS ARE PERHAPS BEING BILKED OUT OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN WORTHLESS INSURANCE PREMIUMS FORKED OVER BY STATE,COUNTY, REGIONAL AND CITY GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES.
    
EVERYTHING YOU SEE HERE IS FROM A PUBLIC DISCUSSION BY THE METROLINK RAIL BOARD. WALSH CONFIDENTIAL HAS NOT SPOKEN TO ANYONE PRIVATELY. IF CONFIDENTIALITY RULES HAVE BEEN BENDED OR BROKEN. METROLINK BOARD MEMBERS ARE TO BLAME FOR SPEAKING ABOUT TERRORISM INSURANCE OUTSIDE OF THE CLOSED SESSION PORTION OF THE NOV. MONTHLY MEETING.
BOGUS TERRORIST INSURANCE MAY BE COSTING AMERICAN TAXPAYERS HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS YEARLY. WILL INSURANCE COMPANIES PAY OUT ON "THE FORT HOOD MASSACRE"?

HERE'S THE NARRATIVE: GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE NO LONGER INCLUDES "ACTS OF TERRORISM". THAT DOOR WAS SHUT BY AMERICAN INSURANCE CORPORATIONS POST 9/11. THE INSURANCE AGAINST TERRORIST ACTS IS MARKEDLY DIFFERENT IN THE REST OF THE WORLD. BUT HERE IN AMERICA, SEPARATE TERRORIST INSURANCE MUST BE PURCHASED AT NEAR EXTORTION RATES OR ELSE A GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY "GOES BARE" MEANING IF AN ACT OF TERRORISM HAPPENS, SETTLEMENTS COME DIRECTLY OUT OF THE  LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY'S NOT THAT DEEP POCKETS.
    
BUT THE AMERICAN INSURANCE PROVIDERS HAVE A TRICK UP THEIR SLEEVES.(FACTS HERE COME FROM SCRRA BOARD MEMBER RICHARD KATZ AND SCRRA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR DAVID SOLOW). THE INSURANCE CONTRACTS DEFINE AN ACT OF TERRORISM AS PERFORMED "BY A CERTIFIED TERRORIST". WHAT IS A "CERTIFIED TERRORIST"? NOBODY KNOWS ACCORDING TO METROLINK'S TOP EXEC, DAVID SOLOW. WHICH BRINGS US TO FORD HOOD. WAS THAT AN ACT OF CERTIFIED TERRORISM? WHO IS THE CERTIFIER?

NOBODY KNOWS. FORT HOOD WAS THE SIZE OF A SMALL AMERICAN TOWN.  AS YOU READ THIS, MORE AND MORE INSURANCE CLAIMS ARE BEING FILED. IF THE INSURANCE COMPANIES REFUSE TO  PAY DAMAGES BECAUSE THEY JUDGE MAJOR HASAN NOT TO BE A "CERTIFIED TERRORIST" THIS MATTER MAY ULTIMATELY END UP ON THE U.S. SUPREME COURT. THE METROLINK BOARD MEMBERS WERE ARGUING OVER WHETHER TO AGREE TO PURCHASE TERRORIST INSURANCE THAT COVERED "$50 MILLION IN DAMAGES AT A  YEARLY PREMIUM OF $6 m. METROLINK HAS BETWEEN 40,000 AND 50,000 DAILY WEEKDAY BOARDINGS. BOARDMEMBER KATZ STATED THAT MTA WHICH OWNS THE HEAVY AND LIGHT RAIL IN L.A. COUNTY HAS $200 MILLION IN COVERAGE WITH ABOUT 300,000 DAILY WEEKDAY BOARDINGS. KATZ DID NOT OFFER THE PUBLIC THE MTA'S TERRORIST INSURANCE WEEKLY PREMIUM.

NO ACTION WAS TAKEN BY THE BOARD WHICH WAS SPLIT IN THEIR COMMENTS. ONE FACTION BELIEVED IT IS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. THE OTHER SIDE THOUGHT THE SEPARATE TERRORIST POLICY WAS A CORPORATE INSURANCE SCAM? THE WAY THE POLICY IS WRITTEN, THE INSURANCE COMPANIES WOULD NEVER HAVE TO PAY OUT ON CLAIMS BECAUSE OF "THE CERTIFIED TERRORIST'
PRISO IN THE CONTRACT LANGUAGE. WE HEARD FROM THE BOARD THAT THIS SCENARIO IS BEING PLAYED OUT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IN EXECUTIVE SESSION AT LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THROUGHOUT AMERICA. UNBEKNOWNST TO THE PRESS. METROLINK EXECUTIVE SOLOW AND BOARD MEMBERS SAID AT THE MEETING TWO FRIDAYS AGO, THAT THERE IS A PRONOUNCED SPLIT ACROSS THE UNITED STATES WITH SOME LOCAL AGENCIES PURCHASING THE WORTHLESS INSURANCE OUT OF FEAR THAT THEY WOULD BE CRUCIFIED IN THE MEDIA FOR NOT PURCHASING TERRORIST INSURANCE IF SUCH AN ACT DID OCCUR IN THE FUTURE. OTHER AGENCY BOARDS ARE FLAT OUT REFUSING TO BEND TO THIS CORPORATE SHAM BY THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY. THROW IN THE MIX, TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN INSURANCE BROKERS FEES FOR TERRORIST INDEMNIFICATION AWARDED IN SECRET THUS SKIRTING LOCAL SUNSHINE LAWS ACROSS AMERICA ALLOWING THOSE POLITICIANS SITTING ON WATER BOARDS, CITY COUNCILS,  COUNTY BOARDS, LEGISLATURES,ETC TO REWARD THEIR POLITICAL ALLIES WITH FAT INSURANCE BROKERAGE FEES IN SECRET. YOU READ IT HERE FIRST. AND WHAT I HAVE IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. AND THIS POLITICAL ICEBERG IS 2/3 SUBMERGED AND DESPITE GLOBAL WARMING GROWING DAILY.

STORY TWO WITH NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE BROKEN BY HOLLYWOODHIGHLANDS.ORG.

11 CITIES IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA WHERE TO STUFF HIS FEDERAL STIMULUS FUNDS. $10,053,973 GOES BEGGING. STIMULAS MONEY LOST THROUGH INCOMPETENCE SLOTH OR INDIFFERENCE BY CITY COUNCILS AND BUREAUCRACIES OF BELLFLOWER,,BURBANK, CERRITOS,COMP HERMOSA BEACH, HIDDEN HILLS, INGLEWOOD, LOMITA ROLLING HILLS, SOUTH PASADENA TORRANCE. THESE ARE TRANSPORTATION DOLLARS THAT COULD HAVE PUT SOME OF THE ONE MILLION RESIDENTS OF THIS CITY TO WORK. THE DEADLINE HAS PASSED. THE MONEY IS LOST FOREVER. COMPTON LOST ALMOST $3 MILLION. TORRANCE TURNED ITS NOSE UP AT $2,355.326. COMING IN AT THIRD PLACE IS SOUTH PASADENA WHICH STUFFED $761,360 DOWN THE CIVIC RAT HOLE. DON'T FORGET BURBANK THAT LOST $599,888 WHICH WAS THEIRS FOR THE TAKING. HIDDEN HILLS AND ROLLING HILLS DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO SUBMIT PROJECTS LOSING A COOL MILLION BETWEEN THEM.
NO STORY IN THE L.A. TIMES BECAUSE IT WOULD EMBARRASS THE COUNTY IN FRONT OF THE NATION. WHEN OTHER COUNTIES IN CALIFORNIA AND COMPETING STATES HERE OF THIS, THEY MIGHT GANG UP TO SEEK A SMALLER PIECE OF THE PIE FOR L.A. COUNTY IN THE INEVITABLE FEDERAL STIMULUS BILL 11. YOU READ IT HERE FIRST.
OUR MOST FAITHFUL READERS ARE THE SUB-EDITORS OF THE L.A.  TIMES. THE PSYCHOTIC RAVINGS CONTAINED HEREIN SOON TURN INTO CONVENTIONAL WISDOM. WITNESS SUNDAY'S L.A TIMES FRONT PAGE OF CALIFORNIA  SECTION:"LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL". A WELL-REPORTED RE-HASH OF THE STORY THAT WE BROKE A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO (AND WAS LATER PICKED UP BY THE LA WEEKLY) ABOUT SENATOR DANIEL INOUYE'S STRONG OPPOSITION TO LIGHT RAIL PLANS THAT WOULD HAVE NEGATIVELY IMPACTED L.A.'S LITTLE TOKYO. MTA'S RACIST PLANS HAVE BEEN ABORTED. NO THANKS TO THE L.A. TIMES. CHECK OUT THE ORIGINAL STORY IN OUR FILES. 

MEDICAL MARIJUANA UPDATE; HERE'S THE SH*T ON THE CONTROVERSY THAT YOU DIDN'T SEE IN THE MEDIA.
GOOD ADVICE; NEVER ATTACK THE OPPOSITION'S LOGIC. GO AFTER THE OPPOSITION'S  FALSE PREMISE.

HERE ARE THE THE WARRING FACTIONS; PWA's AND OTHER SERIOUSLY ILL PATIENTS WITH DOCTORS'PRESCRIPTIONS IN HAND WHO WILL ENDURE BOUTS OF NAUSEA WHEN ALL THE MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES ARE CLOSED BY EVIL REPUBLICANS D.A. COOLEY AND CITY ATTORNEY TRUTANICH. WRONG. DID YOU KNOW THAT MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS UNIVERSALLY AVAILABLE IN PILL FORM AT PRACTICALLY EVERY PHARMACY IN CALIFORNIA. UNDER THE DRUG NAME "MARINOL".

THIS HAS BEEN TRUE FOR MANY YEARS., THE .QUALITY OF MARINOL IS ASSURED BY THE FTA. THE COST IS A TINY FRACTION OF WHAT THE POT DISPENSARIES ARE CHARGING FOR THE VEGATATIVE VERSION. THE PSYCHOACTIVE COMPONENT IS THC--TETRHYDRA CANNABINOL IS CONTAINED IN THE PILLS. THEIR QUALITY IS ASSURED BY FDA, IF YOU BUY POT AT A DISPENSARY, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT POISONS HAVE BEEN SPRAYED ON THE CROP. IN FACT, MOST SERIOUSLY ILL PATIENTS TAKE THC BY THE PILL. 

MARIJUANA CLINICS ARE CHARGING $240 OR MORE FOR AN OUNCE OF WEED. PROFITEERS. AT THE CITY COUNCIL MEETING, MOST OF THOSE ATTENDING WERE SELLERS OF DISPENSARY POT ASKING TO BE INCLUDED IN THE SHORT LIST OF APPROVED OUTLETS UNDER THE ORDINANCE. THE HANDFUL OF PATIENTS IN CITY HALL CHAMBERS (WHICH WAS PACKED) ACTED AS IF THEY WOULD BE TOTALLY CUT OFF FROM THE BENEFITS OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA IF THERE FAVORITE CLINIC WAS SHUT DOWN. AS IF PHARMACIES AT THRIFTY'S RENAMED DON'T SELL MARINOL. WERE SOME OF THE THE CANNABIS PATIENTS WHO SPOKE BEFORE THE L.A. CITY COUNCIL PAID BY RECEIVING DISCOUNTS BY PROPRIETORS? JUST ASKING.

THE P.I.C. (POT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX) HOW DID MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES GET OUT OF CONTROL IN L.A. AND ONLY IN L.A. AMONG CALIFORNIA CITIES.

SHORT ANSWER; A VENAL CITY COUNCIL. A NEW DISPENSARY ORDINANCE WAS WORKED OUT BETWEEN THE L.A. CITY COUNCIL AND THE MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES WORKING GROUP A FEW MONTHS AGO. THESE MEETING WERE HELD IN SECRET . THE NAMES OF THE WORKING GROUP? COUNCIL PRESIDENT GARCETTI REFUSES TO MAKE THEM PUBLIC. WHEN AND WHERE DID THEY MEET?

WHAT COUNCIL MEMBERS AND STAFF ATTENDED? WHERE ARE THE MINUTES. THE DRAFT ORDINANCE WAS SH*TCANNED WHEN THE NEW YORK TIMES EXPOSE BY SOLOMON MOORE APPEARED MUCH TO THE EMBARRASSMENT OF L.A. POLITICIANS. SO BACK TO SQUARE ONE WITH POT DISPENSARIES GETTING A LOT LESS THAN SECRET BARGAINED BEFORE THE NEW YORK TIMES LET THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG. IF YOU ARE  INTERESTED IN DISCOVERING POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS BY THE POT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX BY VISIT LAMPLIGHT . COM. AT CITY COUNCIL'S FIRST HEARING ON THE DISPENSARY ORDINANCE, JANICE "MARY JANE" HAHN MADE A STIRRING SPEECH IN DEFENSE OF THE POOR, WRONGED PROPRIETORS. HER PLEA FOR POT WAS INTERRUPTED NUMEROUS TIMES BY APPLAUSE FROM THE LARGE CONTINGENT OF DISPENSARY PROPRIETORS AT CITY HALL. "MARY JANE" HAHN IS HARDLY KNOWN AS A WILD-EYED PROGRESSIVE. SHE WAS ELECTED BY OUT-REPUBLICAN'ING A REPUBLICAN IN A CONSERVATIVE SAN PEDRO CITY COUNCIL RACE. BUT "MARY JANE" IS RUNNING FOR LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR AND SHE NEEDS PLENTY OF CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS. THAT'S WHERE THE POT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX COMES IN. VISIT THE CITY COUNCIL WEBSITE IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE AND HEAR HER FIRST STUMP SPEECH OF THE LT. GOVERNOR'S RACE DELIVERED STANDING AT HER CITY COUNCIL SEAT. ANYBODY BUT "MARY JANE" FOR LT. GOVERNOR! 

AND ANOTHER THING. IN THE  MATTER OF FULL DISCLOSURE, DO ANY OF THE L.A. CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS HAVE A PRESCRIPTION FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA? CAN YOU GUESS WHICH TWO I WOULD AS FIRST? DO YOU BELIEVE THE L.A. TIMES WILL ASK THIS QUESTION? ANOTHER QUESTION:HOW MANY L.A. TIMES REPORTERS HAVE MEDICAL MARIJUANA PRESCRIPTIONS?

I AM ASKED IF I HAVE SMOKED MARIJUANA. THE ANSWER IS YES. IT WAS AT THE SAME PARTY YEARS AGO WHERE BILL CLINTON SMOKED MARIJUANA. AT THAT POT PARTY BILL, THE FUTURE PRESIDENT SAYS HE ONLYINHALED. REMEMBER? WELL,I ONLY EXHALED. I DID VOTE FOR THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA INITIATIVES. BOTH OF THEM. ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE PROVED TO BE FALSE-BOTTOMED PANDORA'S BOXES, I'D VOTE FOR THEM AGAIN. TO PROTECT MARINOL PATIENTS. 

NOW LET'S LOOK AT THE CONTROVERSY FROM THE REPUBLICAN PERSPECTIVE. COOLEY'S AND TRUTANICH'S, THEY SEE THE LAW AS GIVING THE RIGHT TO PRESCRIPTION HOLDERS OF GROWING THEIR OWN. NO MIDDLEPERSON. WHAT HAPPENS IF COOLEY FILES CHARGES AGAINST PROPRIETORS OF MED-MAR DISPENSARIES/ AUTOMATICALLY THE ARRESTS AND RAIDS ARE WORLD-WIDE STORIES. ONLY IN L.A.? WHAT'S THE REPERCUSSION? ATTORNEY GENERAL JERRY BROWN IS PLACED IN A NO-WIN POLITICAL CORNER. IF HE BACKS THE REPUBLICANS, COOLEY AND TRUTANICH, HE LOSES THE LEFT WING VOTE AND HEFTY CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS IN HIS RACE FOR GOVERNOR. IF HE TURNS HIS BACK ON THE CITY COUNCIL (13 TO 1 DEMOCRAT) THERE WILL BE REPERCUSSIONS FOR GOVERNOR MOONBEAM AS HE WAS ONCE CALLED. WHAT HAPPENS IF HE GOES WITH LITTLE RICKY, COUNCIL PRESIDENT GARCETTI AND THE POT INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX? THE EVENTUAL REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE WILL ATTACK HIM FOR BEING SOFT ON DRUGS AND HIS CAREFULLY ORCHESTRATED PLANS TO CAPTURE THE CENTER OF THE CALIFORNIA ELECTORATE GOES UP IN SMOKE...THE KIND THAT GIVES YOU A CONTACT HIGH. BUT DON'T GET ME WRONG. I LOVE L.A . JUST SOMETIMES THE SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES.

DON'T FORGET TO VISIT MIKI'S POINTED VIEW BLOG.

RECALL  A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO LAUSD IN THE PERSON OF RAMON CORTINES ROBBED SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS OF  THEIR SENIORITY, EFFECTIVELY THROWING US OUT OF WORK AND ROBBING US OF OUR SENIORITY. CORTINES TOLD THE L.A. TIMES THAT THERE WAS NO WAY HE WOULD CHANGE HIS MIND. THREE MAJOR DEMONSTRATIONS LATER, INCLUDING ONE SUBSTITUTE TEACHER ACTION THAT WAS COVERED LIVE COAST TO COAST BY SPANISH LANGUAGE TV NETWORK AND CORTINES CHANGED HIS MIND. LAUSD AND UTLA PRESIDENT DUFFY HAD TO EAT CROW. HE WHO SMIRKS LAST SMIRKS BEST.

THE DIE-IN IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOLBOARD DOORS WORKED BEAUTIFULLY. A TIP OF THE CAP TO THE ANTI-IRAQ WAR DEMONSTRATORS WHO DEVISED THIS TACTIC. ( MIKI'S NOTE-ACTUALLY IT WAS AIDS ACTIVISTS WHO TOOK IT ALL OVER THE COUNTRY BACK IN THE 80'S) SPEAKING OF DUFFY... YOU KNOW HOW I HATE TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO...OOPS! THAT'S A LIE. THE ONLY ONE IN THIS POST. I LOVE TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO. CHECK PAST POSTING. MY PSYCHOTIC RAVINGS THAT DUFFY AND OTHER UNION OFFICERS WERE SECRETLY PREPARING TO BID TAKEOVER OF LAUSD. WALSH CONFIDENTIAL PSYCHOTIC RAVINGS OF OCTOBER ARE CONVENTIONAL WISDOM OF NOVEMBER. FRONT PAGE OF DAILY NEWS; DUFFY IN CONCERT WITH LAUSD STAFF, IN OTHER WORDS:MANAGEMENT, ARE BIDDING TO TAKE OVER 35 LAUSD CAMPUSES. A COMBINATION OF LABOR AND MANAGEMENT; A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL. EVERYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF PRESIDENT A.A DUFFY IS A LIE. WHEN HE SPITS, IT'S A LIE. WHEN HE BREAKS WIND, IT'S A LIE. WHEN HE THROWS UP, IT'S A LIE. WHEN HE SWEATS, IT'S A LIE. AND ON AND ON.

COMMUNITY LEADER JOSE AGUILAR LEADS MEDIA TOUR OF GOLD LINE EXTENSION IN BOYLE HEIGHTS WARNING OF AUTO VS. TRAIN COLLISIONS ON THE ONLY LIGHT RAIL SYSTEM IN L.A. BUILT WITHOUT INTERSECTION GATES. JOSE WAS COVERED AT THE OPENING BY ABC TV KTLA TV AND KNX, AMONG OTHERS. HE'S A MEMBER OF TWO NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCILS AND AN OCCASIONAL SPEAKER IN FRONT OF THE CITY COUNCIL. 
google.com
THE BLUE LINE WAS OPENED WITH WOODEN GATES IN 1990 AND STEEL GATES WERE INSTALLED AFTER A SERIES OF AUTO TRAIN COLLISIONS ALONG THE LONG BEACH RIGHT OF WAY AND THE ORIGINAL GOLD LINE TO PASADENA OPENED WITH STEEL GATES. WHY ARE EASTSIDERS TREATED LIKE SECOND CLASS CITIZENS? ASKS MR. AGUILAR. SUPERVISOR GLORIA IS THE HERO HERE AND ZEV YAROSLAVSKY THE VILLAIN WHO ALLOWED THE STREET LEVEL SYSTEM TO DEBUT WITHOUT SAFETY GATES. THE ETHNIC STRIFE HERE IN L.A IS JEWS VS MEXICANS.

DID I MENTION THAT MY MATERNAL GRANDMOTHER WAS BORN BERTHA BERGER. MY GREAT-GRANDFATHER WAS AN HUNGARIAN JEWISH TAILOR FROM MANHATTAN'S MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS BY WAY OF BUDAPEST.

WHEN JOSE IS WEARING HIS SOCIAL CRITIC HAT,  HE MAKES INTERESTING OBSERVATIONS ABOUT THE CHANGING BOYLE HEIGHTS. JOSE NOTICES THAT GAY MALE COUPLES ARE BUYING HOMES IN BOYLE HEIGHTS. NO. NOT WHITE COUPLES. BUT LATINO-LATINO MALE COUPLES. AND IN BOYLE HEIGHTS, THERE IS AN ALL INCLUSIVE ATMOSPHERE NOT SEEN EVERYWHERE IN L.A. 

DOUGLAS RING; SUICIDE OR ACCIDENTAL DRUG OVERDOSE. THE L.A. TIMES COVERED HIS DEATH FROM THE ACCIDENTAL O.D. ANGLE WHILE THE DAILY NEWS LEANED TOWARD THE SUICIDE EXPLANATION.  WE ARE AWAITING THE CORONER'S AUTOPSY. MR. RING WAS ABSURDLY WEALTHY AND BELIEVED IN THE RIGHT OF THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE SOMEONE'S HOME AND/OR REAL ESTATE AND GIVE THAT TO A HUGE CORPORATION TO FOSTER OSTENSIBLE ECONOMIC GROWTH. DOUG PRACTICED WHAT HE PREACHED. FOR YEARS ON THE CRA BOARD WHICH HAD THE POWER OF EMINENT DOMAIN FOR CORPORATE GAIN. HE DIED A VERY RICH MAN. TO QUOTE A JESUS WHO WASN'T MEXICAN FROM A PERENNIAL BEST SELLER: "WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A MAN IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE WORLD BUT LOSES HIS SOUL". WHAT DO THEY SAY? THE ONE WITH THE MOST WARM BODIES AT HIS MEMORIAL WINS POSTHUMOUS BRAGGING RIGHTS.
SO LONG,DOUG? EVERY TIME I SEE A HOMELESS MINORITY WOMEN AND HER CHILDREN SLEEPING ON THE STREETS OF L.A., I'LL THINK OF YOU AND THE COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY.

HOLLYWOODHIGHLAND.ORG WOULDN'T BE ITSELF WITHOUT A BACKSTAGE PEEK AT THE SH*T HAPPENING ON SPRING STREET. HERE GOES:

JIM NEWTON PREVIOUSLY DEPOSED EDITOR OF THE L.A. TIMES EDITORIAL PAGES WALKS THE PLANK ONCE AGAIN. RIVERBOAT JIM AUTHOR OF AN ACCLAIMED BIOGRAPHY OF L.A. NATIVE CHIEF JUSTICE EARL WARREN DEMOTED TO EDITOR AT LARGE BY RUSS STANTON, L.A. TIMES, EDITOR AT SMALL. JIM WAS NEVER OVERTLY RACIST, ALTHOUGH HE HAD A STRICT POLICY OF NEVER HIRING MINORITY EDITORIAL WRITERS. I'M TRYING TO COMPILE A LIST OF AFRICAN AMERICAN WRITER/REPORTERS AT THE L.A. TIMES. LET'S SEE...THERE'S RON WHITE...THERE SANDY BANKS...WAIT!WAIT! DON'T TELL  ME! DID I MENTION RON WHITE? WHAT ABOUT SANDY BANKS? DOES SHE COUNT AS TWO AFRICAN AMERICANS BECAUSE SHE'S A REGULAR COLUMNIST?  YOU GET THE IDEA, IT'S SHAMEFUL OVER THERE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A MILDLY EMBARRASSING SITUATION OVER THERE IN 1950.

DID I TELL YOU WHY THERE ARE SO FEW BLACK FACES IN THE NEWSROOM? IT'S BECAUSE SAM ZELL IS A RACIST SWINE.  AND THE RACISM OVER THERE TRAVELS FROM SAM'S ANUS TO RUSS (OFFICE BOY) STANTON'S LIPS. NO SHIT! PERHAPS THE BIGGEST RACIST AT THE TIMES IS DAVAN(NO TALENT)MAHARAJ. IRONIC? NOT REALLY, OFTEN THE GREATEST CORPORATE RACISTS ARE MINORITIES EMPLOYED BY WHITE EXECUTIVES TO DO THEIR DIRTY WORK UNDER A GUISE OF POLITICAL HYPER.CORRECTNESS. 
   
NICK GOLDBERG IS A VIRULENT RACIST.
WHO IS MR. GOLDBERG. HE IS THE REPLACEMENT FOR JIM NEWTON. THE TIMES HAD TO ISSUE A CORRECTION ON HIS HIT PIECE EDITORIAL AIMED AT GLORIA MOLINA. THE CORRECTION WAS CARRIED IN THE EDITORIAL SPACE INSTEAD IN A CORNER OF A GENERAL NEWS PAGE. THIS WAS A FIRST. THE TIMES DIDN'T RETRACT ITS DESCRIPTION OF SUPERVISOR MOLINA AS "SCARRED". WOULD THE L.A. TIMES DESCEND TO NAME CALLING IF THE TARGETED POLITICIAN BELONGED TO ZEV YAROSLAVSKY'S ETHNIC GROUP? ONCE AGAIN JEWS VS. MEXICANS OR TO BE GENTLE ABOUT THE BITTER RIVALRY:WESTSIDERS VS. EASTSIDERS

IS ASSISTANT EDITOR DAVID LAUTER A RACIST? DOES HE DESERVE A FOLLOW-UP POSITION SOMEWHERE ELSE ONCE ZELL LOSES CONTROL OF THE TRIBUNE TO THE 5 BANKS AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS THAT LENT SAM THE  CAPITAL TO TAKE CONTROL  OF THE DYING CORPORATION THAT THE L.A. TIMES IS PART OF. SOON WE WILL BE EXAMINING MR. LAUTER IN DEPTH AND IMPARTIALLY. HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CALIFORNIA POLITICAL COVERAGE. HE REFUSES TO LOOK INTO CERTAIN STORIES. SUCH AS SCHOOL BOARD PRESIDENT MONICA GARCIA GIVEN LAUSD FUNDS TO HIRE JONES DAY LAW FIRM TO NEGOTIATE A PLEA BARGAIN AND AGREEMENT TO TURN STATE'S EVIDENCE AGAINST HER BOSS, THEN SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER JOSE HUIZAR WHO WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF A U.S. ATTORNEY CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION BY THOMAS O'BRIEN WHICH ENDED WHEN THIS U.S. ATTORNEY WAS BOOTED OUT BY BARACK OBAMA. EDITOR LAUTER, WHY NOT RE-UNITE RICH CONNEL AND ROBERT LOPEZ TO INVESTIGATE MONICA GARCIA. REMEMBER THEIR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING ENDED RICHARD ALATORRE'S CAREER AS AN OFFICE HOLDER. NOW HE'S PULLING STRINGS IN THE MAYOR'S BACK ROOM.

 MAYOR GIVES IN AT MTA COMMITTEE MEETING. OUTRAGED MINORITY CONTRACTORS FORCE MAYOR TO ORDER AN INVESTIGATION OF THE DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS PROGRAM WHERE THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN OBTAIN A CONTRACT IS TO PAY OFF POLITICIANS THROUGH CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS.

FILE UNDER: STORIES THAT MIGHT GET YOU KILLED
QUICK, IF YOU ARE AN ANGELENO WHAT IS THE FIRST THING THAT COMES INTO YOUR MIND WHEN I SAY: DID YOU THINK 'DONUT SHOP"? IS THERE SUCH A THING AS THE CAMBODIAN MOB? IF THEY ASK FOR PROTECTION MONEY AND THE CAMBODIAN DONUT
SHOP OWNER IS RELUCTANT, WILL THE OWNER FIND A BRICK THAT'S BEEN THROWN THROUGH THE STORE WINDOW? AND WILL THAT BROKEN WINDOW MAKE THE CAMBODIAN OWNER START PAYING FOR PROTECTION. AND ARE CAMBODIANS RELUCTANT TO GO TO THE POLICE? JUST ASKING. I DON'T WANT A ROCK THROWN THROUGH MY SKULL.

THEY ARE CALLING ME A GADFLY AGAIN. LOOK, A GADFLY IS AN ANNOYING MINIATURE FLY THAT GETS IN YOUR NOSE OR EARS. I'M NOT HERE TO PESTER ANYONE. I DO IDENTIFY WITH AN INSECT. THE SCORPION! WHEN I ARRIVED IN ETHIOPIA, THE PEACE CORPS WARNED US IF WE WORE BOOTS, SHAKE THEM OUT EVERY MORNING BECAUSE SCORPIONS LIKE TO CREEP INTO BOOTS TO ENJOY THE WARMTH AND SECURITY. LOOK BEFORE YOU SLIP ON YOUR FOOTWEAR.
WE POST EVERY OTHER TUESDAY. NEXT TIME WE POST IS DECEMBER FIRST. SO LITTLE TIME...SO MANY WINDMILLS.

DON'T FORGET. BELIEVE ONLY IN LIES. TRUST ONLY THE UN-TRUSTWORTHY. RELY ONLY ON THE UN-RELIABLE. TASTE ONLY THE  TASTELESS. SPREAD ONLY FALSE RUMORS. ATTACK ONLY THE TRUTH. DEFEND ONLY THE INDEFENSIBLE. AND ABOVE ALL: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED. THANKS TO ROALD DAHL...A VICTIM OF NEW YORK CITY TRAFFIC. KEEP SPINNING THOSE UNLOCKED SUBWAY GATES UNTIL JUNE WHEN METRO LOCKS THE FREE-SPINNING STATION FARE GATES AND THE HONOR SYSTEM DIES A TERRIBLE DEATH. AND SPEAK LOW. YOU DON'T WANT TO WAKE UP THE MAYOR. AND REMEMBER THE EPITAPH ON MY GRAVESTONE WILL READ; to those of you wasting  your time visiting this graveyard: allow me to assure you that we are not down here deep underground checking on who shows up with some damn flowers and who doesn't. We don't give a damn. Don't comeback. Spend your time living your life. it's shorter than you think. John Walsh (1943-2---). rest in turmoil,
