LA dream

Shit's a poppin' this morning in the City of Bell where 8 City officials were actually arrested for their shenanigans.

Former Bell City Manager Robert Rizzo, former Assistant City Manager Angela Spaccia, Mayor Oscar Hernandez; Councilmembers Luis Artiga, Teresa Jacobo and George Mirabal, and former Councilmembers George Cole and Victor Bellowere arrested on warrants from the LA County DA's office.

Strangely enough, I had a similar dream last night. The beleaguered citizens of Los Angeles City itself finally rose up in protest against the mismanagement, abuse, and outright theft of their very quality of life.

In the dream, arrests were made. Different names, same high profile arrests:

Former Bell City Manager Robert Rizzo    David Freeman (DWP)
Former Assistant City Manager Angela Spaccia    Raj Raman (DWP)
Mayor Oscar Hernandez    Antonio Villaraigosa
Councilmember Luis Artiga    Richard Alarcon
Councilmember Teresa Jacobo    Jan Perry
Councilmember George Mirabal    Tom LaBonge
Former Councilmember George Cole    Jack Weiss

But alas, it was only a dream.
