first_imgRICHARD Riordan, the colorful former L.A. mayor, joined Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa last week to blast the federal government and announce a local panel of terrorism advisers. “We’re fools if we think we can rely on Washington, D.C., to save us from terrorists in this city,” Riordan said, noting how L.A. officials didn’t find out about a plot to blow up a downtown building until six months after it was thwarted. The squads of federal screeners at the airports aside, he’s got a point.
