When I compared the work of the City Council Redistricting Commission to how the Allies created Yugoslavia after the First World War, little did I realize the post would attract a modest but steady stream of views from that part of the world.
At least some people from the states once part of the most poorly defined nation ever created are now aware of the contrived process that shapes boundaries here in Los Angeles.
I wonder what kind of traffic I can generate by drawing a parallel between corruption in Los Angeles under Mayor Villaraigosa with corruption in Russia under Vladimir Putin? Let me tell you, at least the Russian people know how to protest against crooked leaders. None of that camping in the park stuff of the Occupy Movement for them. And they do it in the middle of the winter, too!
In the meantime, the dispute over the breakaway community of Toluca Lake goes on.
It may be time to call in a NATO peacekeeping force.
