...Bringing in a Couple of Keys

Arlo Guthrie said it so well:

Coming into Los Angeles
Bringing in a couple of keys
Don't touch my bags if you please
Mister Customs Man

This city council majority, Ellen Taylor, Linda Elderkin, and Sam Pedroza voted late Tuesday night to go forward with a marijuana dispensary in Claremont. To hear them on the live video was to be treated to an orchestra of sophistry, arrogance, and naivete. Nothing we can say here can approach it, so we won't even try.

It was amusing though that following this item, in the Council reports, someone emphasized the need to have "meaningful jobs" for kids in the community. Yeah, like runners and lookouts.
