Here we go again

The mayor of Los Angeles gets the award for the worst timing ever:

His proposal has no chance of success. Now if it were a "mixed use development" we could call it a catalyst. Then the measure of success wouldn't be, well, success.

Wow...sounds like Renaissance Pointe West...

Oh, wait, those homes HERE aren't all that "affordable", considering the nature of the "territory".

As long as it's housing for illegals, it'll be a smashing success!
