Something in the Air?

Breaking odor news from Hollywood! Writes a reader:

"Just getting back to my office at Sunset and Highland from my Tuesday Famima sushi lunch. As soon as we walked out to Highland up to Hollywood the air was rich with the stench of well...sewer. As we waited at the corner you could see dozens of people checking their shoes for an unwelcome surprise. One guy was even sniffing his backpack. For a nice change of pace, strangers were even TALKING to each other about the smell. Looking up and down Hollywood yielded no answers to the aroma. Has anyone else commented on this?"

Anyone? Did they find sewer in the guy's backpack? Que pasa?
UPDATE: A spokeswoman for the LA Fire Dept. tells us she doesn't know anything about the smell, nor have any trucks been dispatched.
