Voting can be fun

Go ahead and vote.
Go ahead and vote.

If Christine Essel or Paul Krekorian call me one more time, I’m giving them a lump of coal for Hanukkah and Christmas. Yesterday, Wendy Greuel and Ed Begley Jr. called me, too, and I wanted to talk to them because I hadn’t talked to another adult in awhile but they just kept blathering on about Christine and Paul and I couldn’t get a word in edgewise. I thought they were being rude so I hung up.

If you live in Los Angeles Council District 2, you know by now that you could probably build a piece of eco furniture out of the mailers you’ve received from Essel and Krekorian. They’re running for the City Council position vacated when Wendy Greuel left to become our City Controller. It must be a really comfy seat that Wendy left nice and warm because both of these individuals want it badly. According to Christine Essel, she’s the best person for the job and Krekorian is so awful that people turn and walk the other way when he approaches. Surprisingly, Paul Krekorian believes he’s the one you should vote for and that Essel needs to stop smiling and just go home. You gotta love politics.

If you're in District 2, a wacky area that encompasses neighborhoods from La Tuna Canyon to Studio City, please go and vote and wear the sticker proudly after you do. I’d hate to think these individuals bothered us in vain, or worse yet, think we don’t care. Government/politics that affect us on a daily basis are neither the kerfuffle in East Timor nor the donnybrook in Iran, but what’s happening in our own backyards. And let’s remember that President Obama started out as a community organizer and Sarah Palin was the mayor of a town in Alaska so small we would barely consider it a neighborhood here. How you vote today could affect how these individuals feel about their chances for higher office in the future.

Get a look at the snow on the mountains today while you’re out voting.

    You must have a "sperm killer" in Mill Valley because we're not getting the same "related article" down here. There are no sperm killers in Los Angeles.
