Ho, Ho, Ho! Larry Block’s Poem Steals Monday’s WeHo Council Show

‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all thro’ the chamber,

Not a council member was stirring, as the public speakers got tamer;

Then Larry Block took the floor, to offer holiday wishes,

The WeHo council looked on,  most cold as fishes;

But Block provoked laughter as he began to opine,

With a holiday poem we’ve now posted online.

I’m sorry I left the meeting before the second comment session. I would have liked to have been there in person to see the individual Councilpersons faces while Larry read his poem. Very creative way to highlight their failings Larry!

A friend shared this with me and I was very impressed. The Creative City is being creative! I don’t attend the council meetings and am not familiar with all the issues but its very impressive to have someone care and challenge the status quo like this is a polite professional manner.

Mr. Romanoff, lets go to lunch on me. We have never met so not sure how you know my substance or what I think. I’m an open minded guy, not like the haters around here, and willing to engage people who disagree. I’ve also had an epic life, opened my store to have ‘something to do’ after losing my eyesight and ability to drive, and have lots of depth. So heres myself, man up and email me or call.. Unless your afraid to engage and have no substance. Alfredo, we are neighbors and share the same walls. I objected to… Read more »
