L.A. City Councilman Eric Garcetti is a busy, busy man ó seriously. He definitely has more pressing things to think about than stuff like his blog’s banner graphic, which is still urging his consituency to “re-elect” him:
Being one of those proud and staunch constituents, I did exactly as he had requested, but ya know… that vote was way the hell back in March (and did I mention Garcetti was running unopposed?). So when the councilman began posting to his blog again after last week’s mayoral election, he made mention of being officially sworn in to another term and I chimed in with a good natured comment inquirying if the time might finally be right to retire the “re-elect” from the top of his page. True to form, good-humored Garcetti commented back that just such a change was in the works and thanks for all the fish!
But four days later, nothing. Now, before any of you get all huffy and post comments that I absolutely have no right to be concerned with such insignifica and that I definitely shouldn’t expect such a minor fix in such a short time, go re-read my first sentence: I know Garcetti’s a busy dude, especially during this mayoral transition and all. So in the interest of pitching in and serving my favorite public servant, I decided to click-and-save the over-aged section of the banner in question (below, on the left), throw it into Photoshop and with the help of my mad erase skills serve up ó tada! ó a freshly updated version (on the right) that all he (or his webguy) has to do is click and save, then drop into the images folder on the blog’s server. Should only take a second. Or so.
Happy to be of assistance Councilman.
