Circling the wagons in Studio City
Mercury's still in retrograde, and it's a bad one. That's the only thing that explains three top local Anglo politicians descending on Studio City Neighborhood Council last night. But Zev Yaroslavsky and Carmen Trutanich both indeed did show, unexpectedly, according to Studio City Patch. They dropped in on Paul Krekorian, also there, who had been on the bill for weeks to address a planning issue.
The NC has long been Nuch's community group of choice, a dependably lite-right, dependably docile community group to whom Nuch (or anyone) can assure "We're doing the right things for the right reasons" and get away with it.
The two interlopers, Zev and Nuch, were largely there to note that Studio City under the Latino-dominated County redistricting plan is, like Gaul, slated to be divided into three parts.
In the spirit of troika, the pols all posed for three-quarters of a Mt. Rushmore-like photo. That's Zev rocking the Jerry Garcia tie; the other two opted for repps.
"I have no idea why Nuch was there," added one City Hall denizen.
