I stand corrected.
Very corrected. Holy pants, but that’s a hell of a margin. V-dog stomped Slim Jim.
Though I think I was right on one prediction: apathy did rule. Turnout in the ’01 election was 37.67%; this time out only 30.3% did their civic duty. Negative ads work.
My one request for the new mayor of Los Angeles: ride the bus, dude. Ride it every damn day. Take a security detail with you, but get on the bus, the subway, whatever. The entire LA Metro area needs serious leadership to get us off our car habit, and what better way to show that leadership than by using public transit?
