In ex-City Councilman Hal Bernson's day, Los Angeles was a leader in preparing for the Big One, the 7 magnitude or greater earthquake that geologists say is inevitable and overdue - and will be unleashed upon Los Angeles by the San Andreas, Hollywood, Puente Hills, Santa Monica or Newport-Inglewood fault.

LA officials doing nothing? Well, obviously we need to all reduce our carbon footprint and grant amnesty to illegal aliens. That ought to take care of the problem.

In 2009, Adelman was forced to resign by Villaraigosa amidst a lurid scandal after a city consultant alleged that she had blacked out during a lighthearted downtown “bar crawl” with city employees, including Adelman - and awoke hours later in his bedroom, where he was vaginally and anally raping her with multiple dildos while porn played on a big-screen TV. After the story surfaced in the media, she refused to go public and the district attorney announced he lacked sufficient evidence to prosecute.


I remember john and ken talking about this bar crawl but I don’t think they had all these lurid details. Eek.

Basically, yes. We can’t afford to make our buildings safe because we are taking such good care of Central America. We just can’t afford anything else.

Well, we demand that the L.A. Leaders take immediate action to outlaw earthquakes!

In the next paragraph (discussing how city officials are trained):

"One of the things we teach in public policy is, pounce when you get an opening."

Sounds like Adelman was just walking the talk.

Earthquakes are a direct result of sucking too much oil out of the ground. The earth is shrinking, and that’s causing cracks.

So, earthquakes are not a direct result of global warming.

But earthquakes and global warming are both the result of a single root cause...

Bush and his oil cronies.

I can see it now, “excuse me mister disaster relief person but that pile of rubble over there is smoking. I demand that you make it stop. Never mind the dead and wounded, this is serious.”

years ago I worked at Downtown L.A. Datsun.
I left shortly after the L.A. County Sheriff started having practice drills for food control riots.
Least here in Floriduh I get a weeks notice prior to a hurricane.

What are they supposed to do? Typical nanny-staters waiting for the government to take care of them.

The Newport-Inglewood fault also runs through the more conservative Orange County so let’s hope it’s not that one. San Andreas and/or Hollywood faults would be preferred, from my selfish perspective. And only if it happens while Motorhead is out on tour so Lemmy doesn’t get injured by the shaking and destruction.
