AM news: $100 mil, Mayor V, the very smart and very dumb
Hooray for the homeless! The LA County Board of Supervisors has approved the $100 million plan to build 5 major homeless shelters and service centers at points around the county. This should relieve the concentration of homeless in downtown LA. Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky called the move "a historic investment."
What do you do to get the Mayor's attention when he's busy talking to national media on immigration? Disrupt the fluffy "Crash Day" ceremony in the City Council chambers and get yourself hauled away in handcuffs. At least that's what union officials from the Engineers and Architects Association tried yesterday.
The Pasadena Star-News writes up Stephen Hawking's lecture at CalTech yesterday.
Pop quiz: if you've got dormant ammo, should you bang it on your desk? A Ventura adult ed teacher failed that test yesterday when his paperweight exploded, injuring his hand.
