All Mouth - No Ears
ALWAYS ON "SEND", NEVER ON "RECEIVE"
This morning in his daily rant in the CM Press, that yapping hyena, The Mouth From Mesa North, displayed for all who read his crap that he really doesn't care a whit what ANYONE else says or thinks.
As mentioned in my previous entry, at last night's brief Planning Commission meeting The Mouth must have dozed off in his seat in (appropriately) the far right rear corner of the room because he didn't jump up as usual when it was time for public comments. Instead, when he finally awoke from his stupor, he trundled on down to the speaker's podium and asked when they were going to hold public comments. What a schmuck!
Fellow "improver",Vice Chair (for two more weeks) Jim Fisler, re-opened public comments so this bozo could rant about his view of what the city should be. Here's a hint - it should be more white. He also scolded new commissioner-in-absentia Steve Mensinger for not attending his very first meeting.
FOOT IN MOUTH
This morning in his pathetic blog he again scolds Mensinger for not being there and speculates where he might have been. If he had been paying attention last night he would have heard his buddy - fellow Mesa North neighbor and also-newby - Colin McCarthy tell the assembled throng that he'd spoken with Mensinger, who was out of the country on a vacation planned long before his appointment to the Planning Commission. As I said, The Mouth doesn't listen.
This is typical of the kind of misinformation being foisted off on his readers and those members of the elected and appointed leadership who follow his lead on many items. The Mouth pretends to be a reporter because he played one (badly) in a truly terrible movie 35 years ago. Sadly for his readers, they don't know that he just makes up "facts" as he goes along.
YAPPING AND YAPPING AND YAPPING
The bias from the dais in his favor was evident last night when Fisler permitted him to go on and on - exceeding the 3 minute limit by nearly two minutes.
COFFEE WITH CASPA
On a happier note - one that is almost certain to make The Mouth apoplectic - I had a chance to visit with Humberto Caspa over coffee yesterday. Dr. Caspa has returned from his trip to his native Bolivia and will soon begin writing commentaries in local newspapers again. He's in the midst of researching a new project and will likely also be teaching at one of the local colleges, too.
You will recall that Caspa's book, "Terror in the Latino Barrio - The Rise of the New Right in Local Government", was published last year. It's a scathing indictment of the takeover of Costa Mesa government by right-wing factions who, according to Caspa, received their guidance from our old pal, The Mouth.
MAKING "THE MOUTH" SQUIRM
I suspect we'll see Dr. Caspa engaged in local issues once again. Did you hear that, Mouth? He's baaack!
