Yucca Valley, Ca.,- One of Yucca Valley’s Appointed Planning Commissioners, a Town Official, hijacked the comments section with his issue regarding a name used in a story which exposed a Council member voting with a Conflict of Interest. Story>>> link. The issues raised while posing as “Commissioner Gordon” and stating he has “Bat Business” has me wondering why I even bother to continue the discussion with him while he gives the impression he is unable or unwilling to use his real name and leave Gotham City. (For the record, he is Councilman’s George Huntington’s appointment.)
Not wanting to learn about any comic strips or discuss the pros and cons of Batman, I have chosen to offer this artwork as my Christmas present to this story with the Batman theme by the designer clothing company named “Lazy Oaf.”

“I know the website as a whole is not yours but the owner gives you permission to write this blog. Your name calling detracts from your point in my opinion. We all know people with goofy endearing names, I have several for myself that people call me for fun and some are based on the loss of my arm, I approve of them BUT “Lazy Lombardo” is not endearing and I am sure he does not approve. Your argument still makes me feel like I am arguing with a stubborn teenager that will not give in. If you don’t know the difference between calling someone Fatty or Scooter, Fatty can drive a kid to suicide and Scooter probably wont, if you think both are affectionate then I guess my posts are done.. I have “Bat Business” to attend to anyway, adios.”
There are 7 Daves in our lives now, my husband and I sort them out by calling them: Erica’s Dave, Cheap Dave, Big Dave,Goofy Dave,Indian Dave, Biker Dave and Tweeker Dave. I don’t know their last names but this works for us and they are fine with their nicknames too! If you grew up in a neighborhood where the kids did not have nick names then you will never “get it.” Our Generation wore their nicknames with pride. For fun, ask your Mom and Dad what were some of the nicknames used when they were growing up and look for that twinkle in their eye.
L-A-Z-Y: Lazy River, Lazy People, Lazy Bum, Lazy Bones, Lazy Eight, Lazy Song, Lazy Comic……Wikipedia anyone?
For the record, I do not want to cause any hurt feelings or cause any kid to contemplate suicide by using the word “lazy.” I was specific to describe an ADULT elected official NOT reading and comprehending the full packet agendas. Per your suggestion, I will take the “Journalistic Blogger High Road” and use the most commonly accepted journalistic word of “Incompetent” instead of “Lazy.”
@Jeff, are you happy now?
