Costa Mesa: Oh, Those Angry Birds!

Angry Birds

I am tempted to call the Costa City Council meeting this evening an on going soap opera, but that would be minimizing the horror of the destruction of our city by council members Jim Righeimer, Steve Mensinger and Gary Monahan. The gall of these men knows no bounds.

Yesterday came confirmation of what I have suspected for months; Costa Mesa Mayor Gary Monahan may actually be a moron.
