Darren: Mayor Mo and Hedgecock were not friends, understandably. Mo and Golding thought little of each other, too. Of the three, Mo was by far the best mayor. Murphy and Sanders were at the bottom of the barrel. It looks like Filner will be a good mayor. He is on the right side of the most important issues and is standing up to the downtown overlords. Best, Don Bauder

SurfPup: He is inactive. I do not believe he should practice law. You and I have been through this before. Best, Don Bauder

Darren: Is Roger really that successful now? I just don't know. In any case, his mentality hasn't changed. According to Daily Kos, on a KFMB show Jan. 29, Hedgecock said Hiroshima and Chernobyl really weren't so bad; "hysteria" from "anti-war, anti-nuke folks" makes those two disasters seem destructive. "Hiroshima is one of the most modern cities because it had an instant redevelopment plan," quoth Hedgecock. Before the World War II explosion, the city was "a rabbit warren of medieval streets." There has been a "surge in wildlife" in Chernobyl. "The dirtiest radioactive site in Europe has become the continent's biggest animal sanctuary. So much for the hysteria." Sounds like the road to economic revival requires being nuked first. As I said, Roger hasn't changed. Best, Don Bauder

califcomedy: The trouble with Hedgecock's claim that he hasn't changed, but the conditions have changed, is that the conditions would have had to change in one helluva hurry, since he began conservative talk radio four days after leaving the mayor's office. Best, Don Bauder

Darren: I'm not sure anyone, including Hedgecock, would say he is saintly. He is doing very well financially while being a second- or third-tier talk show host, depending on how you define it. He takes a lot of money from an arch-conservative nonprofit that professes to be nonpartisan, but that doesn't appear to be a sin. Best, Don Bauder

Darren: Good point. My bet is that Hedgecock will not mention that report, which showed the futility of the Iraq war, in case there is anyone who doesn't already know. I doubt that Hedgecock will talk about the fact -- and it is a fact -- that the White House deliberately lied to convince the public that it was necessary to go into that war, claiming that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction without any knowledge to back that up. It wasn't an error; it was a lie. What has always fascinated (and repulsed) me is how hard Cheney fought to make sure that what was said in his meeting with the oil industry was never made public. That's because, in my opinion, the oil industry, with Cheney moderating the discussion, was carving up Iraq assets even before we went into that war. Best, Don Bauder

Darren G. Sarvis: Southern California media such as LA Oberved are reporting that Bree Walker, former anchor in San Diego (Channel 10) and Los Angeles, was arrest on a DUI in Anaheim. She was released after promising to appear in court. She apparently ran a red light and failed a field sobriety test. Best, Don Bauder

Darren: According to LA Observed, quoting other media, she was treated several years ago for alcohol abuse. This is very sad. Best, Don Bauder

Darren: With the water, pension, and infrastructure crises as bad as they are, anyone would be crazy to want taxpayer money spent on a Chargers stadium. Prediction: the majority of the council, along with the new mayor, will prove to be thoroughly crazy. Best, Don bauder
