The Valley has seen its fair share of crime during the current recession. Car break-ins. Knock-knock bandits. And now, armed robbery with semi-automatic weapons.
Just last night, a woman was robbed at one of the busiest and most public intersections in the Valley, at Ventura Boulevard and Laurel Canyon. At 9:30.
Are you paying attention, Mr. Mayor? While you continue to play coy about your intentions to run for Governor, the city of Los Angeles is spiraling out of control. Do something, before citizens begin arming themselves for their own protection.
Once upon a time, there was a lovely green park with cottages at its edge. Birds sang, dogs romped, lovers swooned & children played.
The fable goes on to list the ways in which these things shall be destroyed. By towers, digital billboards, and construction dirt. It boasts that “local champions” Tom LaBonge and Zev Yaroslavksy warned us of the imminent danger to birds, dogs, lovers, and children, but that we did not listen.
So, Communities United for Smart Growth is holding a town hall meeting to re-write the fable. How can we ignore the needs of rompers and swooners?

That is why NBC needs to push for a Ventura Boulevard subway.
6 out of 14 households on FMM’s block represent alternative lifestyles of the rich and possibly famous. And she finds them to be very nice people. Will this lead to the inevitable GoogleGay from GoogleEarth?
