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. Los Angeles Backpedals on Downtown, Says Lower Your Expectations: "Actually a less frenzied and less expensive phase for downtown living will help tremendously to get a critical mass of people - and one that is more interesting and mixed income. The pause in top down development will give residents and smaller business owners a chance develop things organically in store fronts- which will make downtown even better. Just wait another 5 years for the economy to regroup and there will be another significant boom."

2. Morphosis's Epic New Astronomy and Astrophysics Center "I like this too, but for one detail: if I were conjuring the 'epic tumult of space', I would maybe clad the building in some dark shiny aggregate; black with agate in it or something. Not some scheissbraun crockery shards."

3. That's Rather Hideous: Where the 1970s Went to Die: Don't hate the double wide! "Pre-Fab" is just a fancier name for what is some of the most utilitarian housing around. See how much technology has you can charge exorbitant sums for these things in Malibu (Pt. Dume Club & Paradise Cove). BTW, just rip off the paneling and you can dry wall. You can also rip up the carpet and lay down any flooring you want. With a few grand you can have the modern, eco-friendly, bamboo floored, Ikea kitchened pad you've always dreamed of. You just have to have, "like vision maaaan!"
