Concerts Saved, Plus A Brace Of Buffoons
Here we are, in the starting blocks for a short week as we head for the July 4th Independence Day holiday next weekend, so I thought I'd give you a little summary of some things that made the local blogs over this past weekend.
FOLEY SAVES CONCERTS
First, Bill Lobdell over at the Daily Voice, first told us of Katrina Foley's announcement that she's managed to find some funding for the Concert in the Park series. You can read his entry and Foley's comments HERE. It's nice to know that not all of our council members approve of deleting all the family-oriented activities in our city. Let's hope the remainder see the light and vote to restore the concerts at the July 7th council meeting. Congrats to Foley and those organizations who stepped up to save the concerts.
ANOTHER VIEW OF MANSOOR
Then, over at the highly successful Orange Juice Blog, blogger Art Pedroza gave us his take on the announced candidacy of our young jailer (is he?)/mayor for Van Tran's 68th State Assembly seat. You can read that entry HERE. I think you'll find a couple of the comments appended to it to be especially interesting. Has anyone figured out whether Mansoor will have to abandon his job as jailer if he's elected to the Assembly? Wonder if his pension is vested...?
THE MOUTH AND THE AZTECS
Finally, we just can't begin this week without a comment on The Mouth From Mesa North... the poor deluded fellow just can't seem to get over the fact that the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission took up the issue of the Aztec Basketball League again, and passed it. I guess, upon reflection, the members decided that his rant at the previous meeting which seemed to polarize four of them, was just so much hot air - a commodity The Mouth has plenty of and which he spouts all too frequently. So, this weekend, he launched into yet another tirade on the subject - this time chiding the editors of the Daily Pilot for their stand on the issue.
SINKING INTO IRRELEVANCE
I'm afraid The Mouth is rapidly becoming irrelevant in our city. Perhaps we should see if Paul Salata, the creator of Irrelevant Week, to see if he can find a place for The Mouth in his event. The Mouth has decided to turn his previously locally-focused cesspool of a blog into an aggregator, folding in links to a bizarre collection of articles from around the world - most of which have absolutely nothing at all to do with life in Costa Mesa. Many do have relevance to his anti-anything-but-white position, however. I'm sure his Costa Mesa neighbors can hardly wait to read that tripe.
