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) Ask Curbed: How to Make My Street Permit Parking Only? "I think the first step toward making permit-only parking is to claim that local celebrity residents are being stalked by paparazzi. (Don't worry if there aren't any celebrities on your street; they're really not necessary. Just say the magic word - "paparazzi" - and the legal system will bend to your will.)"
2) Fido Is Gonna Get You Killed "It's even worse when the dog is using a cell phone. They really should require "paws-free" phones, especially for bitches that like to yap all day long."
3) What A Pro-Mylar Balloon Rally Looks Like "If you outlaw mylar balloons only outlaws will have balloons."
4) Neighborhood Council Dispatch: Cheviot Hills Fights The Expo Line: "Yeah. My parents told stories about how divided the Bay was about BART. BART barely passed by a narrow margin in the first place. Whats also funny as that BART cost 15 billion in todays dollars. People in LA constantly complain that subways are just too expensive to build today. It makes me laugh almost. The Bay Area had to build a massive tube underneath the bay, had to dig under urbanized mountains, and dig under HEAVILY developed urban areas with OLDER technology. The Bay Area was about 3 million people back then, while LA county is currently 10 million! I cant believe they beat the odds 3 decades ago and we cannot even finish the freakin redline! Anyhow, I know it will get built. The question is will it be done by 2020 or 2030?"
