MORE ON THE GROSSLY OVERPAID PLANNING COMMISSIONERS
Some Commissioners say that they spend lots of time driving around checking on projects so they deserve the $ 400 per month that the City pays them.

Baloney!

If the City didn't pay one cent to commissioners, there would still be a line of highly qualified applicants out the door trying to get on the commission.

There is no reason in hell why Costa Mesa Planning Commissioners should be paid $ 400 per month, when cities two and three times our size pay much, much less to their commissioners.

As we wrote before, Huntington Beach, which is twice the size of Costa Mesa, only pays $50 per meeting to its commissioners for three meetings a month=$150 each.

And, why in the hell does the City keep the stupid Parks and Recreation Commission? Its duties should be taken over by the underworked Planning Commissioners.

TIME TO INVADE MEXICO?
This guy thinks so.

WHERE'S JOHN MOORLACH?
Supervisor Moorlach still hasn't answered our July 28 email asking about updates on the Ladera Ranch hate crime, which many people think was a hoax.

Maybe John's just too busy to answer a constituent.

Funny, when he ran for supervisor he was never too busy to send us fund raising letters.

And, what's with this photo? Is he striking a pensive pose or is he about to pick his nose?
