Todd Spitzer - Friend or Foe?

You didn't hear it here first. Too bad. What you will hear is that Todd is being played (and not very well) by his former boss and nemesis, Tony T-rack Rackaukus. As to why, is anyone's guess.... OK, I'll guess.....

I've already commented on the Voice of OC and the Register about this. Spitzer has probably never been on really good terms with T-rack. Face it, he wants the man's job, jumped the gun to vie for it and is now paying the price. Of course, you have to figure Susie girl Schroeder who is sunning herself in Hawaii right now, will probably try to run. At least, that is the rumor. Would she win?

Spitzer has:
  • $1 million in campaign funds already socked away
  • Huge name recognition in this county as a former member of the Gang of Five and State Assemblyman
  • Huge name recognition due to this fiasco that T-rack himself inaugurated (hmmmm, could Tony really be acting in Todd's best interest?)
  • A great reputation as a go-getter no-holds barred prosecutor who will not worry about party affiliation when it comes to digging up the dirt on corrupt politicians and businessmen
Susie girl has:
  • Her sugar daddy who runs the republican machine in OC
  • A reputation for being T-rack's lackey spokesperson who can't think for herself
  • Limited trial experience
  • Campaign funds - well, lets just say she is behind Spitzer on this one.
You decide who has the best chance now, or in the future. If there are other contenders out there, no one has heard from them. Wait..... is that Wally Wade I hear yelling from somewhere in south county?

wonderhere Norby went

So, ever wonder what happened to Chris Norby, OC's inveterate libertarian Supervisor? He's alive and, presumably well, up in Sacramento. In fact, he continues his" Norby Notes" from afar. In his latest diatribe he complains in an unlibertarian tone about how those darn gay people ursurped the American way of life by getting a judge to go along with their scheme to undermine the American way of life by getting him to strike down the anti-gay marriage prop 8. Hey, I'm as straight as Mongo (get it?) and I could care less. He should too. Norby should spend his time figuring out if, in the next 3 years, he will ever get a bill passed. So far he is 0 for 3.

Here is his latest at

Officer hurt in big fight at Juvenile Hall | garcia, juvenile, began - News - The Orange County Register

Here is the Register's story on the "big fight at juvenile hall". At least they were able to interview some of the officers involved. Maybe this will open the door on a department long kept purposely in the dark.

Officer hurt in big fight at Juvenile Hall | garcia, juvenile, began - News - The Orange County Register


The Voice of OC is staying on the story as the true facts come out. Seems there is more to this than the probation department spokesperson, Robert "I don't know what you are talking about" Rangel led the public to believe. Now, they have denied access to the tapes, even though they have the technology to redact the minors' faces so they can be released. You decide......


Now, this is more like it. I don't even have to write anything, just republish it from the Voice of OC. They ran down a story on a riot in juvenile hall that resulted in the hospitalization of one officer and the subsequent 4 day lockdown ( sort of) of the Hall. Ask and you shall receive.....
