Parking Politics

Every nation has the government it deserves – Joseph de Maistre

Maybe we Angelenos deserve to be lorded over by bar exam flunkees who couldn’t govern their way out of a wet paper bag.  We vote them into office time and again either because they stamp the right party affiliation next to their name or because their skin is the right color.  These fools can’t find budget fat to trim in a city where rookie firefighters average $80,000-$100,000 a year, but they have managed to symbolically ban bad words,  build a rail network that ignores the worst traffic congestion in the nation, and criminalize taco trucks. (Actually, I suppose they failed at even that.)  The latest example of bureaucratic stupidity is in our neighborhood’s public parking.  No, not the quadrupling of parking rates, but instead the closure of lots at midnight.  Specifically, the lot on Lincoln between avenues 50 and 51.  A new sign now threatens to tow those parked after midnight.  This wouldn’t seem to be a problem until you consider the nascent night-life at Johnny’s and The York, where some people like to drink even after their coachman has transformed back into a mouse.  I guess we’ll all have to pay for the valet at Marty’s if we want to stay out past our bedtime now…
