It’s so wonderful that we are all supporting our local Palisades restaurants by ordering take-out. However, let’s all please ask them to use paper containers rather than plastic as this virus will come to an end someday but the plastic will be here forever!
Long-time Palisadians will remember that three lanes were allowed to turn left legally at Temescal and Pacific Coast Highway up until 10 or 15 years ago. Why they changed it, I don’t know. Having a single lane just to go into beach parking, which is rarely used to go straight ahead, that third lane is crazy and they should change the law back so you don’t have to be a scofflaw to make a left turn there.
Since I was born on April 19 I always said it as a child that I had a special birthday because it was the day the redcoats marched into Lexington, Massachusetts. So in your May 21 issue, there was a great guest editorial by Jeff Lantos regarding Paul Revere. It was very interesting, very well written and like so many special people, he was not acknowledged until 50 years after his death, so it was great to read and very full of good information. Thanks so much for including it.
The photograph in the May 21 issue, “Her Light” taken by Palisades High junior Maxine Eschger is so beautiful—makes me think of the Georges de La Tour painting “Magdalene with the Smoking Flame” at LACMA. Serene and hopeful in a stressful time.
Thank you, Dr. Raskin, for your thoughtful input about masks, which decrease transmission by 50%. I appreciate the excellent explanation.
