I’ve been super busy lately, so my list of “things to post to bLA” is getting long. But I wanted to note this briefly before I forgot. As I’ve mentioned previously, I just moved into a new neighborhood. Mondays and Tuesdays are alternate No Parking/street sweeping days. The whole city’s covered in them, so I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. In my old pad, these things were the bane of everyone. I don’t think there was one person in my complex that hadn’t been ticketed at least once for forgetting to move thier car. In my new ‘hood, however, things are a bit different. I had been trying to figure out who in the hell was pulling up outside and honking their horn at the beginning of every week. This morning I finally realized, the parking officers in my neighborhood actually honk in front of the houses that still have cars parked out front at street sweeping time. So you can come out and move it before they write you a ticket. Now that’s public service.
