Carmen the Clown Clowned Again on Med420

A Superior Court has issued an injunction that sets Carmen the Clown back to square one, and the cat has got Jane Usher's ordinarily sassy tongue. Poor Jane, left wondering what to say on a Friday afternoon when her boss has already called it a day. You would have thought that the woman the LA Weekly named as one of the city's most interesting people of 2010 could have come up with something "arbitrary and capricious" at minimum.

Now if we could just migrate some of the Med420 advertisers from the Weekly to local blogs where they belong, and thereby whittle the perpetually Republican-hyping "indie" to under 100 pages, we would really see some tangible change in the way local issues are covered in the city of Los Angeles.
