The city of Los Angeles is considering an ordinance that would prohibit members of the public from testifying before the council wearing a mask. Huh?
Its true, The Daily News' Rick Orlov covers the story. It's related to another story we covered here at CCN where the city outlawed the use of the n-word. Apparently, one member of the public, an African-American gentleman donned a KuKluxKlan costume complete with headress to make his feelings about the n-word and how the city of LA made him feel known.
Frequent readers of California City News know we do our best to make sure that all of our "Gadfly Hall Of Fame" honorees are unmasked - though we have included hand puppets and red berets as part of our coverage. We mention this so that we're not to blame - although a gadfly costume contest might have some appeal.
