  1. Rudy vs. Jose………the problem with a mudfight is everyone ends up getting dirty……..The is a decades old tradition in the 14th district….does any one remember Art Snyder?……as my mother sez: He gets things done around here; he may be a crook, but at least he’s my crook!….and who could forget Mike Hernandez, snorting coke and while wearing woman’s panties (allegedly) at City Hall? Come on boys, can’t we all just get along?

  2. I’m curious why a photo of Angeleno Heights was used for the post about news east of the 5. It’s a beautiful photo, but it’s the wrong neighborhood.

  3. @Robert Rivera — I appreciate the historical references, but just for the record, Mike Hernandez represented CD 1 — not CD 14. I believe that Art Snyder was the councilmember for the 14th (even though he was way before my time). If you wanted to go for another drug-addled 14th Council politician, you could have gone with Richard Alatorre, who famously said that the cocaine on his nose was merely residue of his “Doritos.” He did eventually face drug-related charges.

  4. @ BrianM. That our photo of the day, which represent images from the neighborhoods The Eastsider follows – on both sides of the 5 Freeway.
