The ruckus over the seemingly insurmountable budget shortfall for the upcoming fiscal year for the City of Los Angeles looks to be somewhat unjustified in my opinion, a statement which I base upon the 2009 - 2010 Budget Summary from the Mayor’s Office. A reported two-hundred million dollars ($200,000,000) deficit for the upcoming fiscal year seems like a ‘no-brainer’ as to how to fairly distribute such a shortfall – especially in light of six or seven billion dollars of approximate city revenues ($7,000,000,000) and despite the absurdity of the amounts in which we speak.
Anyway, not to demean the issue, but a solution doesn’t really seem all that difficult to see – again, in my opinion. To begin with, where did the one and a half billion dollars ($1,500.000.000 - or bond) come from for the recent and on-going upgrades to the LAX Airport?

PS. For your information, I am available for consulting on a contract basis, btw. I’m not suspect to the typical paradigms which appear to afflict so many in your field. Hiring me would be worth every penny – if I were to even require any pay.
