As the battle heats up over who should foot the bill for the Michael Jackson memorial held last week at the Staples Center, the Mayor returned from vacation to throw in his 2 cents.
Today, he spoke with reporters, while his press secretary, Angry Matt Szabo, tweeted from the sidelines:
Mayor just told reporters he will not ask AEG or the Jackson family to cover city expenses for Michael Jackson memorial.
Mayor: Los Angeles is a “world class city.” Providing police and fire protection is “what we do.”
Good to know.
Should a member of your family pass on, rest assured that the LAPD will clear a lane on the freeway for your procession – free of charge.
