Barbara Venezia Signs In On "Wake" Cancellation

Daily Pilot columnist Barbara Venezia, who has been all over the story about Costa Mesa City Councilman Gary Monahan planning to hold a wake at his pub to "celebrate the life of Jay Pinson" - the guy who was a fugitive from two states for crimes that included penetration of a minor and who lost his life in a shoot-out with members of the Costa Mesa Police Department last month, has signed in on the story of the wake being canceled, HERE.

I'll not go into details of the column - you can read it for yourself - except to note that she and I shared some of the same sources when I wrote about the cancellation yesterday.  She had the story before me, but is hampered by the editorial process and the timing of getting the story up on the Daily Pilot.

So, if what we both have reported is true, there will NOT be a wake Wednesday afternoon at Skosh Monahan's.  And, there will also NOT be a demonstration at the same time across the street according to demonstration organizer Mary Spadoni as quoted in Venzezia's article.

I join others who have commented on Venezia's article in hoping Monahan is sincere in his offer to support a public safety appreciation event in the near future.  He has the chance to restore his legacy as the longest-serving council member by beginning to act like a statesman and not a politician.  We'll see how that goes.

I am sure Gary is sincere and truly wants to help Mary with her police-appreciation rally.

I am also sure Belichick knew nothing about the footballs.

I think it will be sunny and 72 in New York City tomorrow.

I believe pigs will fly.

I believe in redemption.
I just don't believe Monahan will ever redeem himself.

He married the Tea Party and welcomes every fascist within 50 miles of 92626.

Getting that rent for the upstairs room and all the other little perks conferred by his masters keeps him going.
