Like This -- It Brings Us Back to Blogging

We found something we want to blog sue us! The Los Angeles Times, reeling from yesterday's mini-scandal over it's North Korea puff piece, puts its foot in its mouth again Friday in an article about imcumbent mayor James Hahn, who might not get enough votes in next week's election to make the May run-off between the two highest vote getters. Not only does the Times seem to dismiss the idea that Hahn's poor numbers have anything to do with his, uh, poor performance as mayor, they take an awkward (and obvious) pot-shot at former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani too.
On rare occasions, a Los Angeles mayor might have the opportunity to preside over some great character-defining crisis. It doesn't have to come on an epic scale like 9/11, which turned New York City's Rudy Giuliani from a term-limited crank into a national hero.
This kind of stuff belongs in the LA Weekly, not the LA Times.
