Good morning,

In the midst of the worst drought ever here in LA, with more and more restrictions being placed on residential water use, the Dept of Water and Power blew over 10M gallons through UCLA yesterday and destroyed a chunk of Sunset Blvd in the process. And the fine on them will be????? Of course it’s all blamed on old infrastructure that they don’t have the money to replace, but whose fault is that?

Good to see you, Jerry; sorry to hear about the bad parts of your health concerns. Thoughts and prayers.

Another hot and muggy day today coming up. Lovely.

Happy “Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike” Day, GN!

Hai, Sven!

Nice sheepoodles, Mac.

Jerry --

Always nice to “see” ya. Glad some stuff’s improved, health-wise; bummer about the skin and heart carp. Know that we’re thinking good thoughts at you from CasaK.

I guess white privilege has its drawbacks.

Heh. Being rather pale-complected myself, I can relate. (I’ve often used Woody Allen’s old line, “I don’t tan, I stroke.”)

Oh, oh. I finally fixed the avatar problem. No, I didn’t kill James Cameron. Although I should.

That elicited an evil chuckle because “Titanic”.

Sven --

Read about the water main last evening and my first thought was,”how much will LADWP get fined?”

I’m pretty sure one of the reasons that actual critical infrastructure isn’t properly maintained or replaced is that doing so isn’t “sexy”; no real opportunity for polititools to pose with spray-painted shovels, hard hats and/or giant novelty scissors. But hey…high speed choo-choo!!1!1

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Sven and Fatwa!

The first condo association I was part of maintained a budget for replacement of infrastructure. They listed the expected lifespan, the cost to replace, and how much needed to be put away each year to reach that goal, so that when the time came, the money would be there to fund the replacement. This was all part of our monthly fee. One would expect that any well-run agency would do something similar, but then again, we are talking about public agencies.

Heya, Paddy!

…but then again, we are talking about public agencies.

Which are generally lacking in any sort of accountability to the folks they’re supposed to be working for (not to mention also funding their very nice salaries and benefits).

Because FY, TW.

Oh, just got a call from my Vet about my heart. A ventricular valve is calcified. It causes low energy. FINALLY, I have a good excuse for my laziness. Don’t think I’m not gonna milk this, ’cause I am! Effective immediately, all Wheel admins must sweep up teh shavings nightly and scrape and repaint teh cage annually. They’ll be more!

And now to close this segment, a word from Mika Brzezinski:

“Keep it right here on Morning Jew (as in damn dirty), er clue (as in we don’t got one), er coup (liberals’ favorite wet dream), er few (our viewers), er hue (as in MSNBC’s favorite hue -- pale white), er loo (where MSNBC ratings reside), er phew (smell the liberal!), er poo (what we spew), er, or through (the looking glass)”

You’re supposed to do that? How often is regularly?

Hi, Jerry!

Glad you enjoyed it, sir. Sorry for the delayed response; catching-up on my Twitter feed.

BK and I are doin’ okay, t’anks.

Now it looks like I have an atomic case of radioactive herpes.

Ooooh…maybe you’ll develop Jerry-appropriate super powers!!1!

BTW, groceries = booze.

Beer Booze is good food.

Ok, I just looked in the mirror. Not pretty. Two of the spots that were frozen were just at my upper lip line. Now it looks like I have an atomic case of radioactive herpes. I’m glad I got enough groceries on Monday to last the week. BTW, groceries = booze.

“Hillary Clinton” and “spread” ought never appear in the same sentence.
