Crazy but true story: years ago, a source approached me about all sorts of alleged insanity regarding the Great Park, Larry Agran, and his cronies. The editor at the time was thrilled at the story–then promptly took me off the story and gave it to Schou. Schou was thrilled to get on the story–then promptly took him off it, and gave the story to Moxley. Mox, of course has killed in the decade since that bout of musical chairs occurred, but I always wonder how the Weekly's coverage of that orange-balloon place would've differed if Nick or I would've taken it on.
The recent disposal of Agran's regime was the subject yesterday in my latest "Orange County Line" commentary for KCRW-FM 89.9.
In all fairness to Agran, a dirty politician par none, I told KCRW anchor Steve Chiotakis that Agran crony Beth Krom's assertion that what the new Irvine council majority did to essentially dismantle the Great Park Board of Directors reeked of a vendetta is correct–but councilman Jeff Lalloway and his crew are merely following in the footsteps of Agran, for whom vendetta is as essential to life as his morning coffee at that coffee shop in the shopping plaza that hosts Wholesome Choice. Enjoy!
