    This year I might ditch the scary movies altogether, because there’s something even scarier happening right before our eyes – a proposal to create a municipal “Bank of Los Angeles” that will expose the city of Los Angeles to an enormous amount of cost and risk. Read more

You see these around the San Fernando Valley pretty often, and every time I see one, I think through the possibilities for this unused land.
