France's bold foray

~
France's Consul General, former Sarkozy aide, and newlywed David Martinon has a blog.

The city's Spanish, English, German, and Mexican consulates do not. They do, however, advise you to call the tourist office if you have questions about the way their countries do business here.

Nor does our own Mayor's office does not have a blog. Nor do Ace Smith, nor does Parke Skelton, nor does Robin Kramer, and nor do Mariel Garza or Jim Newton. There is no direct or indirect path to communicate with the leadership of Los Angeles, or even their flacks, if you are a citizen here.

Yes, that's right---in Los Angeles, you matter more to the President of France than you do to the Mayor of Los Angeles.

By the way, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has been to China, Latin America, Israel, and Ireland---but never to continental Europe.
