Cal Worthington de sanTana Rifa ... (listening to What's The New Mary Jane)

Pues ... if you're one of those RAZA gente that lives in a 99.9% gabacho barrio (you being the 0.1% OTRO) ... pues there's firme noticias ... simon ... you could be a LOCAL STORY en the LA TIMES ... simon ... just call that mensa LA Times reporter Jennifer Delson ...

Simon ... after all, the mensa wrote a wacky story ayer ... about a 51 year old gabacho who is stranded en the barrio ... the vato couldn't afford to live an OC's REALTOR'S VIDA ... simon, he's a real estate agent ... pues who isn't ... anyways ... the vato bought on BROADWAY STREET ... aqui en the golden city ... eses ... that's pretty bad ... I mean if I was going in with four outher familias to buy a casita for half a million en sanTana ... it wouldn't be on CALLE BROADWAY ... that's asking for it ... chale ... I'd buy one block away from CALLE BROADWAY ... in either direction ... just not CALLE BROADWAY ...

BUTT anyways ... Jennifer Delson writes how this gabacho has "upper-classed" out nuestra barrio ... "When Rush moved into his home, he brought the possessions of an upper-middle-class professional. Collections of cigarette lighters, cufflinks and walking sticks, cherry antique furniture, 2,500 books and 100 suits. He stuck a martini weathervane on the roof." .... ondale ... is she including yellow and white pages in the 2,500 cuenta ... and do plaid shorts with plaid camisas count as suits ... and walking sticks ... no saben ... every pair of Dickey pants purchased en sanTana includes one walking stick ...

Anyways ... the vato tambien brought booze and second hand smoke to nuestra barrio ... AND the vato squeals like a PUTA ... 'For more than a year, Rush had regularly complained to city officials about problem neighbors, particularly Pedro Reyes Rios, whom he nicknamed the "Cal Worthington of South Broadway." Reyes was selling cars parked on the street and in his yard.'

Pues ... how else do gente sell personal items ...

The stranded gabacho continues ... "A man's home is his castle," said Rush, 51. "I shouldn't have to be infringed upon by people selling cars, refrigerators and corn on the cob, plus people playing ranchera music at all hours of the day." ... ummm puessss .... if you move into a GOLDEN CIUDAD, you'll encounter GOLDEN MOMENTOS ... as in vendors and firme musica ... that's what makes a ciudad ... not tidy seaport neighbors or another puta galleria ... I mean ... Rush doesn't even have association pagos ... and he has the pinche audacity to fregar and shittttt ...

And it gets worse ... as Delson writes ... "Often, he would call police about noise late at night, as he stood on his porch having a cigar and a glass of Johnnie Walker Black Label."

BUTT there's a homie for the stranded gabacho ... simon ... a stranded gabacha ... Kathi Lapworth ... dice la Lapworth ... "Rush didn't understand that this section of Santa Ana would never look like Irvine, a master-planned community. I don't dislike him, but he just doesn't understand," she said. "He's one guy living in a house, and he doesn't seem to get the fact that there are houses here with more than one family living in them. That changes a lot of things about parking and the way a neighborhood is."

And he claims his actions are only to help improve and raise the property values aqui ... ese ... we have our own way of raising property values without ratting ... simon ... we sell to mensos ....

Our friend is a big shot with the SA Hist Preservation society. He "saved the clock tower." No kidding.

My neighborhood Assoc., Artesia-Pilar usually has only a handful of people showing up to the meetings. Sad as they are interesting. In the past 9 months, some of our anglo neighbors have (finally) been attending and at first were complainers (tagging, traffic, etc.) but now are involved which is cool. SanTana is a unique city and our neighborhoods reflect that--Not that I want to live next to CalW either, but at the point it is the City who should be enforcing its laws. We can only live together if we understand each other rather then just moving in (he should have known the demographics if he is a realtor) and demanding change.

Residents also have a say in what is ciudad status quo... afterall it is us who are footing the mortagage, utils ETC ... and we do ... I mean, overtime, we've developed additional storage space on roofs which are common ... and accepted by codo enforcement ...
