Villaraigosa a no-show at Palisades parade


LA's philandering and ethics-flaunting mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was scheduled to appear in the Pacific Palisades Fourth of July parade today-- but to the surprise of few, didn't show up. "He was... busy!" laughed a parade organizer.

Today's parade lacked the political controversy of last year's march, when the racist Minuteman brigade marched to protests and their promoter, John of the John & Ken radio show rode the parade route to jeers and catcalls (the hate radio slug apparently wasn't invited back this year). Instead, it provided a bizarre trip to earlier years with parade grand marshal Pat Boone, a right wing Christian compatriot of Palisades honorary mayor Gavin MacLeod-- and Brady Bunch star Barry Williams.

(And while no one expected Villaraigosa gapal Mirthala Salinas to show up in public today, Brigadier General Angela Salinas did ride along the route.)
