So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish
Nor does it seem anything -- even reports in the national press about the City teetering on the brink of bankruptcy -- can make Los Angeles voters start paying attention.
Why, then, should you and I spend our valuable time trying to save this city? It's pointless. It's futile. We cannot save this city. We can only save ourselves, most likely by fleeing the jurisdiction.
So my plan now -- about which I may change my mind 10 minutes from now -- is to stop wasting my precious time documenting and commenting on Villaraigosa and the Spring Street Gang, and to focus instead on getting our house in condition to sell, and figuring out some other place to live.
If you still believe you can save this city, bless your heart, and best of luck. I hope you're right. But I'm not willing to devote any more time on that cause.
In the words of the dolphins fleeing Earth at the beginning of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe," let me end by saying, "So long, and thanks for all the fish."
