U.S. Of Righteous Indignation

What happened on the national scene, since we stopped coverage? Politically speaking, we are doing… remarkably. We’ve had:

  • an official endorsement of white power
  • a nuclear threat
  • an accused sexual predator endorsing a child rapist for a political office
  • a historic “tax cut”
  • “Fire And Fury” by Michael Wolff
  • a new expression “s-hole countries”
  • and many other “gems” in-between

The majority of Americans (Angelenos included) are still waiting for the progress and final outcome of Robert Muller’s investigation of the so-called “Russian collusion” during the 2016 Presidential Election. So far, it didn’t prevent a “Very Stable Genius” from making America “great” or “white”. For now at least, we are the United States Of Righteous Indignation. In the meantime here in Los Angeles, we’re taking solace in our local leadership. It may not be totally “stable” or entirely “genius”, but – with an occasional exception – it continues to make us proud. Read more

California Still Stands, L.A. Trash Stinks

“RecycLA” with its poor service of trash pickup and very high cost went into effect in October 2017. Our initial reaction was that of disbelief. We were hoping that the disaster is a mistake, that the City will rush to correct it: after all, we elected them to protect Los Angeles residents. It didn’t take us long to realize that no one is coming to the rescue and we looked into opting out. Yeah right!

We are suffering today because “In 2014, the Los Angeles City Council voted to make private enterprise illegal in the in the business of trash-hauling.” This decision removed the option of opting-out of “RecycLA” and basically rendered us helpless to exploitation by “RecycLA”. “RecycLA” comes with a license to exploit us and we have no recourse.

When two people fall in love today, they often move in together before formally tying the knot. This “trial period” allows them to test their compatibility before entering into a long term union. “RecycLA” makes us wonder why our powers to be didn’t consider a test pilot program before outlawing other trash disposal options, and instead jumped head first into a 10 year long exclusive commitment….

Los Angeles’ Economic Boom

“We are powering Los Angeles’ economy to new heights every year, because we know that lasting prosperity means investing boldly in jobs, opportunity, and growth,” said Mayor Garcetti. “The expansion of our travel and tourism sector, and the success of our Port, tell the story of a city whose moment has arrived — and we will continue pushing forward as we expand our role on the world stage, and prepare to welcome the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2028.”

According to the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, the city welcomed 48.3 million visitors in 2017 — an increase of more than 2 percent over 2016, marking the seventh consecutive year of record-breaking tourism growth and moving L.A. closer to Mayor Garcetti’s goal of welcoming 50 million visitors a year by 2020.

“These latest numbers from the Port, LAX and LA Tourism show that Los Angeles is the premier gateway for worldwide trade and the hottest destination for travelers,” said Councilman Joe Buscaino, Chair of the Trade, Travel and Tourism Committee. “In the years to come those numbers will only continue to improve with the investment of billions of dollars into LAX, Metro, and numerous cultural, sports and entertainment venues, including the Lucas Museum, LAFC stadium and the LA Waterfront.” Read more

Elliot Trilogy Sets A Precedent

Los Angeles audiences will have the rare opportunity to follow Quiara Alegría Hudes’ Elliot Trilogy playing concurrently at theatres across the city in early 2018. Center Theatre Group’s production of Pulitzer finalist “Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue” (at the Kirk Douglas Theatre January 27 through February 25, 2018) and Pulitzer winner “Water by the Spoonful” (at the Mark Taper Forum January 31 through March 11) will be joined by Latino Theater Company’s production of the final installment of the trilogy “The Happiest Song Plays Last” (at the Los Angeles Theatre Center February 17 through March 19). It is the first time all three plays will run at the same time in one city.

“It’s really thrilling to get a chance to see the plays produced back to back for the first time in a single city,” said Hudes. “You see one play, and you get that beginning, middle, end—you get that story. But you see two, three of the plays, you get that sense of family all of a sudden. You’ve gone through it over time with this family. So I think the ending of the entire trilogy lands in a deeper way. The laughs get deeper, the pain gets more pronounced. Hopefully the plays are resonating off of each other in ways that will yield rewards.” Read more
