I was scrolling fast through Surf Santa Monica, when I saw an astonishing headline — City Council member Richard Bloom had apologiztd to the Coastal Commission.
As the Commission is charged with monitoring and controlling development in thr coastal zone, and Bloom’s pro-growth and development stance is well-known, such an apology would be altogether fitting. But, given Bloom’s general demeanor, it was also altogether unlikely.
I scrolled back to the headline. I’d misread it, of course. Bloom hadn’t apologized to the Commission, he’s been appointed to it.
Astonishing. And very depressing. d!
