Fair Deal Percolates & Other "Hairy" Issues

As the Fairgrounds issue continues to percolate with no news today, over at the Voice of OC, editor-in-chief Norberto Santana, Jr., has signed on with his take on the meeting last week at which the Sale agreement with the State and the Memorandum of Understanding with Facilities Management West were both approved by the City Council. He played a little loosey-goosey with some of the numbers, but generally got it right. You can read his report HERE.

And, the Voice of OC also includes a link to a nearly 10 minute video clip from KOCE, their news partner, in which moderator Rick Reiff presents video interviews with some of the main players in this drama - Jim Righeimer, Katrina Foley and Sandra Genis - and discusses the Fairgrounds plan with Santana, Nick Berardino, head of the Orange County Employees Association and Karen Lugo, a Constitutional Lawyer. You can watch this very interesting video clip HERE.

So, we really don't have any good news about the deal. I do know that the legislature is just about due to take it's summer break and the deal cannot be consummated unless and until it passes the necessary bills to facilitate the sale. More when we know more...


In the meantime, over at the CM Press, our old pal, The Mouth From Mesa North, continues to demonstrate signs of serious mental health issues. Apparently, as Costa Mesa's racist-laureate, he's decided to morph his pathetic blog into a aggregation and repository of incendiary racist articles and links. I mean, does he really think both of his Costa Mesa readers want to peruse the pages of Al Jazeera, for goodness sake?

And now the poor man seems to have developed a serious case of follicle envy. Yep, he clearly has a fixation on a full head of hair to the extent that he has decided to violate copyright laws using a protected image from my blog to illustrate the hair style he covets. I kinda want to help him out a little, I mean beyond him having that photo pasted to his mirror to admire each morning. Heck, we know he had flowing locks when he was in that awful movie, The Second Coming of Suzanne, for 19 seconds 35 years ago, as you can see here. I'm sure he could grow a nice mop of hair if he would just stop asking for that prison-style haircut when he sits down in the barber chair.

I suppose it could be worse, though... he could have an obsession about what's IN my head instead of what's ON it, right? Only kidding... we all know - because he reminds us of it frequently - that he's a Mensa member and the smartest guy in town. Come to think of it, we've not seem much of him lately. In the past he was a regular infestation at most city meetings. Perhaps he's staying home to grow some hair! We wish him well - but not too well. We really don't want him to come back to the meetings to hawk his books again, now, do we?

Wow sounds like you have a full blown obsession with Mr. Millard. Honestly, consider getting help before it becomes unhealthy.
