You’ll be disappointed to learn that this poll concludes round one of the 64 Worst Things In Los Angeles. On Monday we’ll begin the second leg with a series of “speed rounds” to narrow the list down from 32 to 16 of the worst things about Los Angeles. Until then, a few polls remain open – teacup dogs vs. hipsters, the 405 vs. the LA River, neighborhood film shoots vs. gang violence, drivers who block intersections vs. gang violence, and Kobe vs. Dr. Phil. And now, here are items #63 and #64:
Morning radio hosts. Kevin & Bean. Joe Escalante. Valentine. Steve Harvey. Ryan Seacrest. Mark & Brian. Rick Dees. Big Boy. Take your pick, or leave a comment adding to the list.
Between McMansionization, urban density, eminent domain, and redevelopment, landmark properties are frequently torn down or key aspects renovated beyond recognition while investors await a hefty return, never once concerned about the cultural impact. L.A.’s rich history is rarely respected, and largely unknown. For example, most Angelenos, especially those pesky transplants, unaware that until 1847 L.A. was part of Mexico. (a big exception goes out to the L.A. blogging community, which ise full of writers and readers with an appreciation and curiosity of the city’s history… nerds!)
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
Poll closes Sunday afternoon.
