Apparently, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was booed at when he was introduced at last night's Dodgers pregame ceremony, according to the LA Times. And maybe rightfully so, but considering his latest promises for the next four years, we think he deserves a second chance in his new term. That chance won't last forever by any means, but if he does what he says he's going to do--major rail infrastructure being a sexy one--you know he then will have a guaranteed job as Governor down the line. He promises to track results online, so we'll see about that, too. Because, hey, whatever happened to the promises of citywide Wifi by this year? Will it actually happen by the end of 2009? Tracking those results cannot be easily found on the Mayor's website.
