Aztec Basketball League Is Back!
Well, well, well.... it seems that the Aztec Basketball League is back!
At their meeting on May 24th the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission will, once again, be requested to consider granting a permit to the Aztec Basketball League to use the Downtown Recreation Center each Sunday beginning June 20th.
GOOD FISCAL TRADE-OFF
If granted, they would displace fewer than two dozen casual, walk-in participants who use the facility for pick-up volleyball and basketball games. The city would lose roughly $3,430 in fees from that use and would, in exchange, be paid an annual revenue of $43,000 - actually, the city would realize just over $20,000 for the initial 6-month period that is being recommended - by the Aztec Basketball League.
FOUR LUMPS OF STONE
Some will recall that, at their previous meeting, the commission completely botched this issue. When Chair Kurt Galitski recommended approval the other four commissioners turned to stone - not a second to his motion, no discussion, not a mutter, not a substitute motion - nothing! The proposal died.
"THE MOUTH" AS SHEPHERD
Interestingly, this stony silence came in the wake of one Costa Mesa resident speaking on this subject - our old grumpy buddy, The Mouth From Mesa North. He - internationally notorious racist that he is - jumped to the speaker's podium and raised the specter of ex-convicts and pedophiles invading our city on Sundays under the guise of playing basketball and molesting our children. Apparently, the sheep on the Parks and Recreation Commission fell for his tripe.
ONE MORE TIME...
So, now we get a second shot of providing another revenue source for our city in these trying times. It will be very interesting to see if The Mouth gives an encore performance at Wednesday's meeting, and whether any other resident of this city stands to recommend the plan....
ALWAYS AN ADVENTURE
One thing is for sure - it's never a dull meeting when The Mouth tries to overlay his racial views on activities in our city.
"THE MOUTH" - AN EXAMPLE OF A WASTED LIFE
And, speaking of The Mouth, he took the opportunity on Father's Day to post on his blog a peculiar self-assessment of his own failures as one. Since he's been looking a little sickly of late, and because he seems now to have only fleeting interest in local events - choosing, instead, to sprinkle his pathetic blog with his views of international events and his warped views on race and the purity thereof - I suspect he might be more than slightly off his game. Who knows, this may be signs of early onset dementia. That, of course, is very good news for the rest of us who would prefer our city not be guided by the ravings of a racist loser. Perhaps he's finally stepped back and looked at his life and now realizes that he has managed to squander his prodigious intellect on hopeless racial rants instead of actually using it to make the life of those around him better. How very sad for him - and them.
