Symposium: Rebooting California

Full disclosure: we like anything that’s called “symposium.”

REBOOTING CALIFORNIA: a symposium

Be better equipped to cover California Politics – enjoy a full day of informative panels at Loyola Law School on Friday, September 24th. Experts explore how to fix what’s wrong with the Golden State.

Again California finds itself in paralysis: No budget. A divided legislature. Initiative measures that cost taxpayers millions.
The Los Angeles Press Club is proud to co-sponsor a free, Loyola Law School all-day symposium that seeks answers: “Rebooting California: Initiatives, Conventions & Government Reform.”

Panelists are also expected to explore a possible constitutional convention.

Participants include Robert Hertzberg, Shiela Kuehl, Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, Raphael Sonenshein and former Gov. Gray Davis. Moderastors include KCRW’s Warren Olney, Sacramento Bee’s Dan Walters and NPR’s Karen Grigsby Bates

Loyola Law School, this Fri. Sept. 24, 9a-5:45pm. FREE.

“What is Your Self-Worth?” Book Party Part Two: Sightings

Pictured is your humble FBLA editors, Pandora Young and Tina Dupuy, with Bai Ling (also known as that chick from The Crow). Former nanny, Fran Drescher was in the crowd. Her assistant was handing out CD’s titled Cancer Schmancer. We also saw Jackie Collins scurry by.

The most shocking sighting all night was Gray Davis – former governor of California – recalled by the Terminator – Gray Davis. We actually blurted out loud, “Woah?!” When we saw him. His wife is somehow connected to Cheryl Saban, the author of the evening. Gray Davis, what a tragic political figure – he’s like Richard Nixon after he was VP for two terms, after he lost a presidential AND a gubernatorial bid – when there was all the bitter and list-making with none of the power to be the Nixonian crook we’ve all grown to love. Poor, Davis. We’ve had some bad nights and even been booed off stage – but not on that big of scale. Eep.
