Rumblings & Bumblings: Columbus Day Hangover

Happy belated Columbus Day. Feliz Día de la Raza. For our Venezuelan peeps, we mean Día de la Resistencia Indígena. Whatever you were busy celebrating yesterday, you seem to have forgotten about our weekly Rumblings & Bumblings. We have just two questions this week, so make them count. Send us answers and questions for next week here.

1) Downtown: Forgive me if you've covered this before, but i just started driving into downtown from the westside again after about a three-year break. taking the 4th street exit off the 110, i was a bit stunned to see the words 'TOLL PLAZA' (not pictured above) and some other signage before olive street, making it appear as if it will now cost some dollars to enter downtown in the near future.

Is this what is happening? are toll plazas going up on other streets? i'm quite perplexed.

2) Hollywood: What's planned for the recently sold lot at the corner of Hollywood and Van Ness? its just an ugly weed infested lot now with a chain link fence.
