Two-Town Transit Service Roiled by Racism Charges

There are 4 comments on the Beachcomber story from Jul 12, 2012, titled Two-Town Transit Service Roiled by Racism Charges. In it, Beachcomber reports that:

Nothing in a headline works like charges of racism. No doubt, that's why the L.A. Times used it in one article and the O.C. Register used it in two articles about an otherwise obscure route change in a Long Beach Transit schedule that those papers would never cover sans the brouhaha.

It's looking like Laurence W. Jackson is the Long Beach wing nut holding together this dramedy. Just another example illustrating racially-based hiring of people in official positions will usually wind up biting a city in the behind.

No big deal. The Times will do anything to keep the focus off their disasterios choice to back the union owned local and state democrats who have driven the State into Pension legacy Bankruptcy.

Mocking good people with good values is easy if you aren't a good person and have no values whatsoever. The Times has bee a weapon against CA for years.

As Seal Beach becomes more upscale, you can understand why they don't want Main Street invaded by those lower-class, brown-skinned, lip-pierced, skateboard-carrying bus riders from the mean barrios of Long Beach.
