    Villaraigosa a scandal waiting to happen. A minority at that.
    You need only been here in LA to have seen him dump his sweet wife for a woman affair newscaster.
    I love that he was an early advocate, that's about it.
    How he didn't screw up the democratic convention was a HUGE relief.
    I used to think that the media were showing his SMILE on purpose.
    I don't think he could buffer that smile at a funeral. It's like botoxed.
    I'd still have no problem with him except for one thing, that pisses me off.
    Here in LA, any event night or event, every Fri. Sat. Sun. you can not walk down Hollywood Blvd. or such, without every corner, with some SAME co.'s little hot dog carts that I'm sure would not pass an inspection. To go to a movie one has to be assaulted with a non stop onions & hot dog smell. The little pizza joints & eateries, with cash registers be damned.
    I'm a full fledged LIBERAL. I have no problem with immigration or prejudice.
    I just want to walk to a movie & not smell onions & hot dogs, block after block after block.
    I'm not Jewish but if I were it would offend me off even more.
    I keep thinking someone is going to get pushed onto one of those frying plates, burn themselves and who will pay?
    I want to take a simple refreshing walk to a movie.
    Villaraigosa after LaHood. I don't think so.

      The part that gets me is you don't live in LA, unless you are friends, love all people & races.
      Respect. Don't assault your different friends!

      •  Respect part II (0+ / 0-)

        You have no idea.
        The blvd. is crowded, you're walking around between tons of people, all of a sudden your face to face with a small rectangular frying plate of onions and hot dogs, block, between blocks, at every busy turn, at every corner.
        All owned by the same one person.
        Who that person is & why only they have the monopoly on hot dogs, Who knows?
        But I don't have any respect for Villaraigosa & wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him.
        You don't make friends that way. You don't garner respect that way.
        Don't chain me to your preferences & I won't call you a meathead!
        So beat me up. Murder me already. BRING IT ON!
