    He has nominated 2 of his band mates.
    His drummer and back up vocalist.
    Since they can’t pack a bar like they used to or a bowl, he has to give them something to live on.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The city of Los Angeles will no longer hire Standard & Poor’s to rate its $7 billion general investment pool because the firm recently downgraded the city’s portfolio from AAA to AA.

    Interim Treasurer Steve Ongele says the city has lost faith in S&P’s judgment.

    The Los Angeles Times ( reports Ongele told the City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee this week that the city should be proud for cutting ties with S&P.

    He notes the market crash that came with the real estate debacle occurred because rating agencies like S&P gave unworthy corporations AAA ratings.
