@THE GUSS REPORT-Two things have noticeably reduced the usual squandered time and frivolity at LA City Council meetings in 2020.
RANTZ & RAVEZ-I will begin with the smooth-talking “do as I say and not as I do” Governor of California.
GUEST COMMENTARY-Six months ago, there was plenty of support for defunding the police.
LEANING RIGHT--It's been proclaimed, and hotly-debated, that too many Republicans, including the Orange Man presumably leaving the White House, don't care about people.
GELFAND’S WORLD--The frantic filing of lawsuits by Trump supporters in these, the last days of his presidency, reminds me of nothing so much as the frantic legal maneuvering that happens when a convict is facing the death penalty the next day.
VIEW FROM HERE-I am by no means a medical expert. And when it comes to disease control and public health measures, I automatically defer to Dr. Fauci and other scientists working on these enormous problems.
GUEST WORDS--If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that the unexpected can happen in a flash.
GELFAND’S WORLD-This is going to be an argument that at least one government agency here in Los Angeles have its budget cut, but it's not the LAPD.
EASTSIDER-While everyone seems surprised by Biden’s pick of Xavier Becerra to head the seriously messed up Department of Health and Human Services (thank you, Donald Trump), I think he’s a great choice.
LEANING RIGHT--Way to go, LA! You sure showed THOSE LAPD officers and County Sheriffs a thing or two! Or maybe even three or five!
VIEW FROM HERE--We’ve all heard about Trickle Down economics where the government gives millions, billions or even trillions of dollars to the wealthiest and then tells us that it is good for the little guy as enough edible scraps will fall from the banquet tables for the rest of us.
BREAKING--Just weeks away from relinquishing power to incoming President-elect Joe Biden, the Trump administration is quietly launching a last-minute assault on Social Security by rushing ahead with a rule that, if implemented, could deny critical benefits to hundreds of thousands of people with disabilities.
