MIRISCH ON POLITICS - Oscar Wilde once described a cynic as somebody who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. So what do you call someone who knows the purported "value" of something without discussing the price?
How about "an LA-area politician"? The LA-area politicians and political hacks who are shilling for Measure J are engaging in a cynical and deceptive campaign to sell the "benefits" of the measure to an unsuspecting public without giving a true picture of the price. Surprised?
