There's a children's show on public television called "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" It's a geography detective show in which contestants follow clues and try to pin down the ever elusive Carmen. City Hall appears to have its own version of this game, only with Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alatorre as the star. Alatorre is not only a powerful member of the council but a key board member of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
