By definition, this blog focuses on socio-political commentary in the City of Carson. However, today I want to celebrate the sense of love, family, and commitment to growth that are not only cornerstones of this great city, but richly embodied in two of its citizens: Rudy and Tessa Mageo.
For the majority of the 18 years that Rudy and Tessa have been a couple, they have lived and loved in Carson, CA, recently purchasing their first home here. A self-proclaimed “Carson Girl,” Tessa, along with Rudy, have been a dedicated team providing encouragement and support to the children at Scott Park- where their children, Isaiah, Elia, and Rudi, participate in activities.

By this point, everyone is familiar with the Deepwater Horizon Crisis continuing as we speak in the Gulf of Mexico, so I will not rehash all the details. However, there are a few points that this Unbiased Observer would like to make:
1.) The Deepwater Horizon Crisis is not President Obama’s Hurricane Katrina.
People were starving in the streets, children were going for weeks in dirty pampers, elderly people were cut off from life-saving treatments, the NOPD turned into vigilantes and wreaked havoc on an already tumultuous situation. With all the aforementioned things occurring, then President George Bush simply flew in a helicopter overhead, and paused long enough for the “poignant” image of him surveying the damage to be captured as people fought for their lives on the rooftops of the 9th Ward.

An Administration Shakedown?
Just when I think the GOP members can sink no further, Rep. Joe Barton, (R-TX), proves me wrong. He decided to apologize to British Petroleum CEO Tony Hayward- on Capitol Hill today to explain BP’s role in this crisis- with this shameful statement: “I apologize,” Barton told Hayward. “I do not want to live in a country where any time a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong is subject to some sort of political pressure that is — again, in my words, amounts to a shakedown. So I apologize.“ Continue reading
Looking forward to Lakers v Celtics!
On August 14th, 2010, after much hard work on behalf of the people who love them most, Mr. and Mrs. Mageo were celebrated in an unforgettable ceremony that was a testament to the impact they have had on the lives of others.’
It is not often that one stands in the presence of love and recognizes it by name. However, to know Rudy and Tessa is to be one of those of fortunate people. Their love is a quiet one, made even more special by its lack of ostentation and grandiosity. It is dependable, strong, and one knows that when all else fades away, it will still be standing- made stronger simply by the very fact that it continues to exist. Continue reading
Should be a good game.
Returning to California in 1973, Attorney Donoghue’s next career move was with the California Judiciary Council. Eventually, he began a long and rewarding career with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office where he put himself on the frontlines of justice for 25 years. His primary focus was removing criminals from the streets of Los Angeles who were a danger to society, and for four years he served as a Child Sexual Abuse Specialist. During this time the only emotion that matched the heartache of looking into the eyes of traumatized children was the satisfaction of ensuring that the perpetrators of these heinous crimes spent significant time behind bars.
