Thanks for the notice. Best bet is just to stay home. I feel sorry for people who rely on publicRead More transportation and need to get through these areas.

Eric Garcetti's big priority is aiding and abetting illegal invaders of the US. He does thatRead More effectively. If you think rails matter to him, just look at the "Subway to the Sea". How much did that cost, and how did that work out? I'd love to hear his response, but I've heard his foul mouth. So I'd rather not hear anything from him.

I'm surprised he didn't bow down to taxi drivers like the previous mayors that didn't build a railRead More system to the airport. That should have been the very first rail we had. Opening every lane on the freeways would probably solve most congestion issues we have but then the politicians would have to give up federal funding. Now we have to live with bike lanes that cause more traffic cause they wanted the federal funds that came with that project so I don't think any of these projects are gonna lessen traffic their just big projects to keeptheir donors in business.

Fernando, you never did look at the quiet sign inside the walls of the bus station at Ave 26 whereRead More the buses pull out. You also never talked to Rudy like you said you would. You also know nothing about the Saturday night like program at Cypress Park like you claim to know about. There was hardly a few people there any given night. Especially after the free food ran out. You don't know the neighborhood now. Maybe you did at one time but you don't know Cypress Park anymore. If you really live in Cypress Park post what is written on the quiet sign inside the bus station. I challenge you. Let's see if you come through.

I don't need to talk to Rudy. He knows. I see him all the time. What happen what the Hell do I lookRead More like a news reporter..lol your name should be noisy not nonoise.

N is about the smartest person here.... Yes, why aren't grey water and rainwater systems requiredRead More for ALL new construction? What don't I understand? I've put this question out to various water agencies including the MWD with no reply.
DR July 9, 2014 at 03:20 pm
If things are that bad, why not stop building new homes, businesses for awhile until we get someRead More substantial rainfall?This is a short-term contribution, I realize, and affects more than just water, but then also do what the others have suggested and institute the grey water/rainwater systems in the future. It's just ridiculous that we are told to conserve, conserve, conserve everything and then all that does is drive costs up. And, building continues so demand increases, etc. Darned if you do, darned if you don't.

Attn: Mr. R. Terry Date: Monday June 09, 2014 It is because of gamblingRead More that some horses and bulls lose their lives. When horses continue to have a losing streak the owner is not making any cash off that horse, it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. If a horse breaks it's leg in the race it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. Bulls will die automatically in a Bull Fight after the Matador sticks both swords in the bull's throat from the left and right side of the bull. So don't tell me gambling has nothing to do with your comment. I understood what you were saying. But these animals are going to be killed if there is no money to be made that is all there is to it. I don't like it anymore than you do. But it seems that way the ball bounces and one of us is going to have to catch and stop that ball from bouncing. The best.

The Pride Parade is coming.
Val Streit June 7, 2014 at 07:40 pm
WTF? You go against your own community and sound like FOX News with the whole "lifestyle"Read More comment. No one that I know in the LGBT community makes statements like that against their own. For you to even think it is a lifestyle tells me that you have some issues being gay. We (true LGBT) were born this way and because we want the same rights, you think we are forcing our "lifestyle"? Something tells me that you have issues with your own sexuality. It's plain horrible that you diss your own people. Happy Pride everyone.
George June 7, 2014 at 11:33 pm
I beg to differ with you but it is a lifestyle. You don't know if you were born gay. No one knowsRead More why there are gay people. Could be up bring or hereditary? The gay pride parade does a disservice to normal gay men & women who don't act a fool parading around half naked in God awful clothing or costuming. Muscular men dressed in ridiculous attire and/or drag.... Te whole thing is worth ignoring which s exactly what I plan to do. Suppose to be a beautiful day at the beach and that will be VERY nice. Naturally the militant gay will continue to stir the pot and that's their right but this gay man who came out when he was 15 in the early 80's has never been discriminated against and has for the most part enjoyed immensely being different then straight people. At the same time I never felt cramming my lifestyle down the throats of people who will never, ever understand gay people was away to gain acceptance. I really do not care if they accept me. Who cares. I am sure a lot of gay men and women feel the same as I do but feel since the gay community leader are pushing this whole militant gay issue that they should be involved because they are gay. I am the first to stand up for something when I feel slighted but that is not the case here. It is a manufactured issue that these gay community organizers are pushing and have been for a long, long time. When I was younger they were doing the same sh_t but the gays back then saw through there BS and waved em off. Back then ONLY the drag queens were the militant gays. That has all changed and it a crying share people can't see what is REALLY going on here.
Val Streit June 8, 2014 at 11:27 am
You really aren't comfortable in your own skin. Being that there are other gay people in my familyRead More that leads to genetics. Go lay on the beach and be an angry "gay man" who hates his own community of people. I pity you.

If history provides any lessons, the city will screw this up completely and the citizens will getRead More the shaft. Look at Rio de Los Angeles State Park, only recognizable as being different from a vacant lot by the sports fields. It is a terrible design by ecological ideologues at North East Trees that never had the budget to properly maintain it. Now it is an ugly field filled with dead trees and invasive weeds choking out what is left of an ill considered native planting. Then there is the giant bait and switch that is the Los Angeles State Historic Park. The city held a design competition for the park and Hargreaves and Assoc. won. Now I am not a huge fan of their outdated modernist landscapes but at least they are competent. Once the public got on board thinking they were getting some world class design, the commission is pulled from Hargreaves and given to a banal firm in San Diego that would then produce a sad and pathetic design not worthy of a world class city. Look at the pocket parks around the river. Most are so badly infected with the restoration meme that they require signs to inform people that they should not be viewed as a weedy mess. The people of Los Angeles deserve better. They deserve parks like the Highline, but instead get treated like beggars thankful for any scrap of trash.
