PLAYA – R.I.P.:

Playa Vista’s Jeff Wald, who served as a manager for Helen Reddy, Sylvester Stallone, and George Carlin, has died. He was 77. Wald’s daughter, Traci Wald, confirmed his passing. No cause of death was available. “To the very end, he was laughing and fighting for the life he lived with epic proportions in every way,” Wald said in a statement provided. “He was surrounded by the family he loved so much and the music that was the soundtrack to his life of eternal optimism. We are heartbroken by the loss of our husband, father, friend, and fierce advocate for women’s rights and justice for all.”

Group Says it Has Enough Signatures to Force Mike Bonin Recall Vote:

A group looking to oust Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin said Wednesday it has submitted more than 39,000 signatures in support of a recall measure – a number organizers believe will be enough to qualify it for the ballot. More than 27,000 valid signatures from registered voters in Bonin’s coastal district are needed. The recall effort could be the most potent sign yet of public dissatisfaction over L.A.’s homelessness crisis. “Bonin has been an absolute disaster for the community,” said long-time Marina del Rey homeowner Alice M. “Removing him immediately from office should be the priority of every area resident.”

** Why the f—k are some retail stores already playing putrid Christmas music before Thanksgiving?

** Note to the world: If you buy your pet a birthday present, you need to see a psychiatrist immediately!

** Some people say heaven is the place where you are reunited with all the dogs you have lost. If you are spending time thinking about heaven and dogs simultaneously you really are screwed up in the head, which of course describes many people in our area.

PLAYA – BULLETIN BOARD:


1. ** THE ANTI-RECALL PEOPLE HAVE GOTTEN CREEPY. Today an anti-recall person knocked on my door and offered me compensation if I didn’t sign the recall. Said, “Mike will personally have dinner with you.” Then they wrote down my license plates, took photos of my dog. 7300-7310 Vista del Mar, Playa del Rey, CA —- Justin Purser, Playa del Rey

2. ** I dig Angry Angie. Cool chic! —- Ramon N., Westchester

3. ** Joe Buscaino Moves To Reinstate RV Dweller Limitations. I was so pissed when the city let LAMC 85.02 sunset in January 2020 and then we all got distracted with the pandemic. Buscaino’s current motion to reinstate is better. He is proposing registration and permitting to limit how many RVs end up in any particular community, plus a way to track RV dwellers and make sure they are connected with services. —- Tracy Thrower Conyers, Westchester

4. ** I’m told by a friend who works for the Santa Monica police that they are budgeted for 215 officers and are now down to 160 with many continuing to leave. Perhaps this explains the nightmarish crime rate in the once great city of Santa Monica. —- Victor P., Marina del Rey

5. ** My neighbor Reggie is a drunken, brawling, perilous churl. And ugly to boot. Beware. —- Annabelle T., Culver City

6. ** As data showing the effects of sugar on the human body becomes more well known, future generations will look back with horror on our practice of sending children out to trick-or-treat. —- Abby W., Playa del Rey

7. ** “Truth is the only safe ground to stand upon.” —- www.LBNExaminer.com

8. ** A sad day in Westchester! Well…I was wondering when it was going to happen…today was the day! The dreaded car backups of pre-pandemic lore are officially back! If there is one thing I really enjoyed about the pandemic, it was the lack of traffic in our neighborhood and around town in general. —- Scott Henry, Westchester

9. ** I caught a glimpse of the clean-up in the park today. It may sound corny, but I was actually thrilled. Thank you to all our wonderful neighbors who made this possible, especially Robert Hansen. #WestchesterPark, 7090-7100 West Manchester Avenue, Los Angeles, CA —- Trudi Devine, Westchester

10. ** Someone tried to access my house on both sides…rang the doorbell. I heard branches scratching my window on one side of my house, then a minute or so later my dog started barking and looking very intently in the backyard. 6420-6430 West 83rd Street, Los Angeles, CA —- Britt Morrissey, Westchester

11. ** I know I don’t have to tell you that Critical Race Theory is bad. But as a former communist, that was deep in the trenches of the radical Left. I’ve had an inside look that most conservatives never had – and I can tell you that while most of the American people don’t like CRT, most of us don’t understand how serious this really is. —- Dr. William H., Marina del Rey

12. ** I recently moved here from NYC. Originally from France where I studied and practiced hairstyling before moving to work at a top-level salon. I have been in this industry for more than 10 years and I am here to offer you my services. I am happy to help with haircuts (all ages, genders, etc.), colors, balayage, and anything you’d need. I most likely will be able to help you with or at least direct you to your best hairstyle. I do house calls for a fee or you can also visit me. —- Marie Cosseron, e-mail: cdvmarine@gmail.com

13. ** Bonin Recall Numbers. Needed 27,000 collected 39,000. He’s gone thank you all. —- Robert Hansen, Westchester

14. ** I just don’t like LeBron James’ style. —- Kevin K., Playa Vista
