¡Buenos dias, mis amigos!
My goal for today is to see "The Post" because so many of you in my Twitterverse are singing its praises. As the Southern California News Group (OC Register, Los Angeles Daily News, San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Daily Breeze etc.) announces another round of layoffs, respect for the media is needed more than ever.
In political coverage, OCR's Martin Wisckol and PE's Jeff Horseman are beyond reproach. They better not be affected.
Media is dying in California. I witness it every day. I love the work being done by about a dozen writers, but the number keeps dwindling. We are responsible as we get rid of paper subscriptions and don't subscribe electronically. Advertising is dead in print. I subscribe to 12 papers electronically because of The Nooner, but as you know, I am strange. Like you, I don't want a paper delivered to me each day. I live in an apartment these days and walking 100 feet outside to fetch a paper with stories I've already read is so 1999.
Of course, I encourage you to subscribe to The Nooner, but I hope you also subscribe to the newspapers you read. The failure of newspaper reporting is a disaster--a s*house if you will--for California.
TONIGHT: Generation Change is hosting a back to session "Tapas Tuesday" event from 5:30-7:30pm at Mayahuel. I plan to be there to get my tapas on. Because, after all...the word tapas tickles my fancy like no other. Tickets for the event by the organization focused on electing more millenials are $100 ($30 for Young Dems) and sponsorships are available. Hosts include speaker Anthony Rendon, Treasurer candidate Fiona Ma and many others.
SAY IT AIN'T SO: Simon's, the famous watering hole and Chinese restaurant on 16th where BOE member and Treasurer candidate Fiona Ma lights up her vocal cords for her occasional karaoke nights, has been closed by the health department for insect/rodent violations. It's not the first threat to Simon's, as fans have long feared it would be razed for new development in a hot spot in midtown. For those of us who live around here, it's day-by-day for the future of midtown businesses and housing.
DACA: Today, California congressman Pete Aguilar is dropping a bill ("dropping" means filing in Congress) with Texas Republican Will Hurd on a DACA compromise. It doesn't go as far as liberals would like nor as restrictive as some conservatives prefer. Believe it or not, there is some bipartisan work happening in DC, even as the federal budget expires on Friday.
MONEY MATTERS: The Legislative Analyst's Office has released its overview of the governor's proposed budget.
YOU MUST BE KIDDING: San Diego community El Cajon is arresting civilians sharing food with homeless people.
