Erection Dysfunction

  If someone takes the time to review the history of Fullerton over the past forty years, one thing becomes shockingly clear: when it comes to building things, maintaining things and planning for things, the City government just can’t do much of anything right. And yet over this long history, the City and the public […]

Return to the Pinewood Stairs

Follow us back, gentle Friends, as we revisit the construction horror show known as The Pinewood Stairs. It’s been a year-and-a-half since we frightened you with the design and construction fiasco of the Pinewood Stairs at Hillcrest Park. FFFF photo documented the sorry project even before the embarrassing party the city threw for itself since the […]

Suspect Apprehended by FPD

A notorious criminal was nabbed by FPD after giving chase up North Pomona Avenue yesterday afternoon. Reports had been received that Victor J. Testudines had been spotted in the neighborhood. Testudines was eventually apprehended by officers around 5:45pm by police after a lengthy foot pursuit. “We had to chase  him down and that really pisses us off” […]

Please Cap Pic

Someone sent in this image of  Fullerton City Councilman Doug “Bud” Chaffee and his mate Paulette Marshall. I’m not sure why. Maybe the friends can shed some illumination on this with a helpful caption.

An alert Friend sent in this image of a guy recognized as Orange County District Attorney investigator, Abraham Santos, at the scene of the Memorial Joe Felz Crash Site.

Thou verdant thing, thou honorable creature of God. Thou hast passed in the mere twinkling of an eye on a moon-dark night. We miss thee, O Sappy.  

A Brief Respite

In a campaign that has been long on issues and short on joy, I thought it would be hopeful to post a couple of the sweetest images I have seen in this campaign. Travis’ little girl, Selah, exalting in unbridled joy at the sight of her dada on a door hanger: and Sean Paden’s beautiful daughter sitting next to […]

Just A Matter of Time

IMPORTANT UPDATE: This post was published a little over a year ago. The title, “Just A Matter of Time” was spot on; another example of what happens when city funding for things like trees and such get diverted to things like public employee pensions and the obscene debts that they cause:  Original Post, September 8, […]

My New Vocation

Just when I thought it would be a good idea for me to hang it up from Fullerton politics, this sign showed up in and around Fullerton. Good grief! Someone really took the time to make and plant these comical things. And that got me to re-thinking my role in Fullerton. Geez, thinks I, if […]
