TWEET DU JOUR: @VanessaCajina1: "Our #cabudget chair rocks a #wonderwoman shirt when presiding. How bout yours? @HollyJMitchell"

Happy Election Day (for CA34, that is).

Okay, today's suckage is the news that Dos Coyotes on R Street will close this month. That, along with Roxie's and Nido provide a collapse of the R Street restaurant scene. My college and law school life was Dos Coyotes in Davis. I got a BA in Political Science, a JD, and a MS in shrimp burrito science. I didn't even know there was one on R Street, near where I live.

Let's face it. The California Democratic Party is in complete disarray. The race between chair candidates "establishment" Eric Bauman and "Berniecrat" Kimberly Ellis found a Bauman win by 62 votes. But, Ellis is yet to concede and her supporters continue to ask for an independent forensic analysis of the election. I have no horse in the race, but the fight is bigger than Bush v. Gore and is literally tearing apart the party, with Ellis supporters threatening to leave if they aren't satisfied. Of course, ask irrelevant Ralph Nader how well that works.

The fight has now become over religion as the party's Saturday voting showcases a problem of delegates who or Orthodox Jews, which are not supposed to put pen to paper on the Sabbath.

Bauman has said he's staying away from the CDP office as the investigation continues. There is no real legal procedure, and the party can't afford another convention for a revote, nor would the big funders of the party want to be associated with one.

It's ugly. While I was a county Democratic party chair back in the day, Art Torres will tell you I was not a party guy as I fought against a regional district reshape that screwed Yolo County (Yolo won). That said, this divide is sad to see, and I would say the same if it was the Republican party. I wouldn't like to see either party under the clouds the CDP is under. We need parties that earn the trust of the voters, fight aggressively, raise money ethically, and win or lose accordingly.

Today, President Jerry Brown will sign a climate accord with China in Beijing. Meanwhile the guy with the nuclear "football" is on a tweetstorm today. "Sorry folks, but if I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH" 

You can disagree with WaPo and NYT opinion pages, but you can't ignore that American institutions that cannot be replaced. I don't always agree with the Wall Street Journal's opinion pages, but they are of a proud institution in America. CBS's Face The Nation with John Dickerson is outstanding. I start my Sundays with NBC's Meet the Press. Nobody covers the world like CNN's Fareed Zakaria. Oh, let's just upset the president more by citing AlJazeera America, considered in media circles as the best independent news source.

Small Business Day And Disgruntled Small Businesses :: Fox&hounds

The annual Small Business Day event hits Sacramento today with elected officials recognizing small businesses from their districts. All small business people are not alike in attitude and reaction to government requirements but you can take the temperature of small business attitudes when owners of small businesses gather together. So it was when I dropped in on a group of small business owners and executives in Los Angeles County last week. From this group the word expressing their experiences running a small business in California is: Disgruntled.

Big potential savings by moving staff out of S.F. Hall of Justice
sfgate.com
The potential savings, laid out in a budget and legislative analyst’s report released Monday, provides fuel for city officials who want to close the old building, which is in such poor shape that employees routinely deal with sewage leaks and rat infestations. “When inmates (in the seventh floor jail) throw stuff down the toilet, you have sewage leaking down onto the district attorney’s offices below,” City Administrator Naomi Kelly said Monday. Were rodents and sewage not bad enough, the hall also has lead and asbestos in its walls, and its rattletrap elevators break down often. he jails are “not up to modern design” standards, Kelly said. Kelly and other officials — including Supervisor Jeff Sheehy, who requested the budget and legislative analyst’s report — are pushing the city to lease property rather than wait to build new facilities for the district attorney’s office, adult probation department and police investigations unit. Sheehy said he has nauseating memories from his stint working in the hall between 1998 and 2000 as an advovcate for same-sex domestic violence survivors and hate crime victims under former District Attorney Terence Hallinan. Once a colleague left her coat on the back of a chair for a few hours, he said, and later found a dead mouse in one of the pockets. San Francisco’s Ten-Year Capital Plan proposed using $429 million in certificates of participation — debt secured by the city’s general fund — to build new facilities for the district attorney, medical examiner, police, sheriff and adult probation department, but the money would not be available until 2022.
