Tuesday's Headlines. No Surprises: Rudy's Piggy Bank
- Piggy Bank time! Rudy Giuliani will be in San Juan Capistrano this afternoon for private fund raiser (which his people tell us will be closed to the press). The Washington Post reports that Giuliani's OC trips have been happy ones thus far. He's picked up $98,250 from Newport Coast, $273,388 from Newport Beach, $109,277 from Irvine, $62,450 from Laguna Beach, $41,350 from Orange and then some.
- Sick Fuck: Both the Times and Register have the worst story of the day: Woman in her 20s crawls out of her car -rendered inoperable after hitting a barrier on the I-5 freeway shoulder near San Juan Capistrano. Woman calls a friend for help when a man pulls over and offers to help. She says no thanks. He throws her cellphone to the ground and rapes her, then drives off. How he got away with that on the heavily-trafficked freeway is beyond the sheriff's department.
- Can't please
everybodyanybody: The Daily Pilot talks to folks for and against rehab housing in Newport Beach, and neither side is pleased with the new rules the city is proposing to curb the spread of such facilities in the area. Anti-rehab home activists are threatening to sue the city for millions if more isn't done, while rehab home operators plan to put up a fight if the rules are implemented. The Reg detailed the rules last week.
- The things they carried...and lost: Ever wondered where the things left on OCTA buses end up? Here's an item we missed from yesterday's LAT.
