AIDS Walk Los Angeles, as you know, was a great success. It drew 30,000 people and raised about $3,005,014.

There to help kick the festivities into gear was Mayor Antonio VIllaraigosa, and according to West Hollywood Patch, he had some inspiring words for walkers:

Dignitaries and celebrity guests were on hand to give opening speeches before the thousands of walkers departed from the intersection of San Vicente and Santa Monica Boulevard. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, trying to get the crowd roused, commented that the men of West Hollywood were “hot.”

I don't think anybody is arguing with that.
