The best posts usually originate in our comments. To give appreciation to our amazing (and sometimes angry) commenters we feature their broad strokes of wisdom in a tidy comment roundup.
1) Americana at Brand: The Final Push I walked through with my friend from Portland, who is not a planning/development nerd like the rest of us. The dancing fountain display was on full blast, with a throng of observers. When it was over, they erupted into applause. He turned to me increduously and said, "These people are applauding water hoses that are on timers. I'm scared. Can we leave?"
2) Neighborhood Council Dispatch: Silver Lake's Heron Debate "The herons were the first to realize that Silver Lake is sooo over."
3) Getty Goat Munch "Suggesting that goats (which you ignorantly confused with sheep, young goats are referred to as kids) should be slaughtered in such a cavalier manner bespeaks a distinct anti-goat bigotry that has no place on this website. Disgraceful. Get back to the usual thinly veiled race-baiting, and leave these speciesist comments out of the discussion."
4) Think Pink, Says Metro "By the time this subway is completed, there will be no more gays in West Hollywood anyway. The older ones are cashing out and moving to Palm Springs. The younger ones are all in Silver Lake and surrounding areas. So, Pink Line, no way."
