Rick Newcombe, founded Creator's Syndicate in Los Angeles in 1987, and is its President. On tooday's Wall Street Journal Editorial Page Mr. Newcombe relates how the anti-business climate created by the City Government's bureaucrats is driving his business out of the City. Some choice quotes:
"This city is fast becoming a job-killing machine. It's no accident the unemployment rate is a frightening 11.4% and climbing."
"The city's bureaucrats rival Stalin's apparatchiks in issuing decrees, rescinding them, and then punishing citizens for having followed them in the first place."
"As long as City Hall operates like a banana republic, why is anyone surprised that jobs have left the city in droves and Los Angeles is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy?"
