Virtual Neighborhood Watch
Are these people trying to turn us into Soviet Russia? A blanket of CCTV cameras watching us all the time we walk our dogs? It is just too creepy. I have a better idea—lock your car door, you idiots, and cut crime that way.
Cell Phone, Hell Phone
I have seen cell phone arrays around Los Angeles, so I can tell your readers that the picture you printed last week (“Small Cell Phone Tower Issue Grows in Palisades”) is far from typical. That is twice as big as any I have seen. So, stop trying to scare the neighborhood about yet another environmental blight threat. Even if Sprint and Verizon do get permission to build their towers, it will be somewhere no one cares about and we will all have better phone coverage.
What’s up with the two-way stops at four-way intersections in the Huntington? I have almost been hit three times while turning left at Drummond and Toyopa by large SUVs barreling through the intersection. Slow down! When vehicles are parked on both sides of the road it makes it nearly impossible to see when another car is coming. Of course, after avoiding the near-collision, my racing heart is always met with jeers and hand gestures towards the stop sign. Thanks, I know it’s there, do you know where your brakes are?
It’s not the heat. It is the humidity. And we have all been very sticky. Why don’t people get that?
There is a head of steam building up for a dog park in the Palisades—except for those who might end up living next door to it: Imagine what it would smell like today. I have an alternative idea. A public swimming pool. Not everyone in the Palisades has a pool and it’s a great way to meet local families. Maybe at the Rec?
