The Board of the Los Angeles Unified School District has named retired Vice Admiral David Brewer, III to be the next Superintendent.  Mayor Villaraigosa, who's on a trip to Asia, says he's "disappointed" he wasn't involved. One of his allies, Democratic Senator Gloria Romero, calls it "a complete mockery" of the Mayor and the legislature, which passed a law to give him a voice in the process.  But another Villagraigosa ally, the most recently elected board member, made the board's vote unanimous.
