|Sierra Madre Gothic|
Not coincidentally, Encinitas is currently under serious assault from various predatory development forces that would just love to cash the place in for some big time profits.
Does any of that sound familiar to you, Sierra Madre readers?
This news comes to us from our favorite Encinitas blog, the aptly titled Encinitas Undercover (link). A fine local Internet news source sharing that special kind of reverence for local pols we here at The Tattler also hold so near and dear to our hearts.
So to speak. Here is how they broke the big news:
Being the savvy folks they are, the Encinitas Undercover dudes saw this coming a long time ago. Which, in Joe Mosca city residency terms, is just a little under 2 years. With an assist from The Tattler, here is their spot-on call from February of 2015 (link).
Now I realize that by covering this story I will be subjected to the same Lady Wistaria-like criticisms that are usually directed at my esteemed self when I discuss the Sherman Oaks Carpetbagger. The main charge being that I am somehow obsessed with poor Joe and will not leave him alone so that he can continue his bottom feeder political career in peace.
I don't care. What makes this story newsworthy in my opinion is that it is very very funny. Why on God's sweet earth Mosca would want to repeat his unhappy Sierra Madre experiences down in Encinitas is far beyond my limited powers of comprehension. But I do laugh, and in these troubled times that is important.
A local Encinitas pulper, a weekly called The Coast News (link), has picked up on all of this excitement and expresses their interest in the following way.
So you know, our very own Tony Brandenburg, world-famed lead singer and lyricist for the punk rock band The Adolescents, remains in Sierra Madre. They're talking about a different guy here.
One more thing before I stop typing for the evening. By the time you read this there will be a lot of comments attached to that Encinitas Undercover article. Joe Mosca is a controversial figure wherever he pops up. But the first one is interesting, and it comes bearing some familiar video links.
The two videos referenced in the above comment are these. The bold legacy of Neuroblast Films lives on. The first is titled "Joe Mosca Flip Flop In 4 Minutes."
Special bonus points to anyone who can correctly count the number of times Joe uses the word "process" during his speech. So you know, I've lost count.
Here is the other video cited above. It is called "Mosca Meltdown."
Ah me, so much vibrant nostalgia. You must realize that if Joe does manage to finagle an appointment to that vacant Encinitas City Council seat, we'll have to start covering the affairs of that town as well. Meaning the list of Tattler afflicted villages will increase by one more.
Everybody have a great New Year's Eve. And please, do stay safe.
