On the good side, the gridlock on Sunset as the hotels are being built, and once open for business, will making pedestrian crossing of Sunset Blvd safe. Cars will be at a total stanstill.

And at least today, nobody will get run over if the street is closed for a bomb scare.

And hasn’t there been a bomb scare recently on sunset?? LA is huge. Why weho?????

Someone hates this season’s fashions on Sunset Plaza designer stores?

Perfect timing to approve Monday’s city council ‘Camera’s in Public Areas” item. Public Safety is the overriding consideration in these times. Many objected to the cameras in the past due to privacy concerns. Let’s get these camera’s installed in the public areas. There have been dozens of times the cops have come to my store to review our videotapes…its often a process. We need cameras in the key points around the city. (not for ticketing but for security purposes only)
