Expect more sausage

Sausage factory logoThe Daily News politics blog, mostly silent since March, has come back to life. Rick Orlov introduces himself from City Hall in today's Sausage Factory post. Excerpt:

In my real life, I am a reporter and columnist for the Daily News and have a weekly column of political odds and ends called Tipoffs, that runs on Mondays.

In today's column, I note that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has completed interviews with the three top candidates all women -- for executive director of the vast Los Angeles World Airports system and is expected to make an announcement soon on his choice.

What I didn't note _ and it struck me over the weekend _ is how far we have come in so short a period of time. When you think of the aviation industry, it's the Chuck Yeagers, John Glenns and Clark Gable movies from the 1930s that comes to mind.

Yet, here, all three finalists are women...

Changes and more frequent posts are reportedly on the way.
