LA City Parks Dept had a meeting to draft or discuss a new ordinance about changing the crass commercial junk being sold on Venice Beach. But who could find out where or when the meeting was held ? Could it be intentional that the outreach was limited or non existent even to those who WANTED to attend, to comment, to question their tax-paid decision-makers?
Venice Boardwalk ordinance draft looks like it's going to fail it's duties (tags)
Venice Boardwalk has been a big loss to the City- how it is seen by Los Angeles' tourist crowds, and to LA's own image as an artistic or art-supportive environment. Commercial vending of cheap re-sale-mdse. bought at any local wholesaler while using City sidewalk free spaces ruins any art scene. City Council doing a draft that looks bad so far.

Bill Rosendahl has brought a special squad of 21 LAPD officers into Venice, CA . Now that most of the Homeless Living in their cars and moterhomes have lost their vehicles...

I suspect these include Farmers, Raw foodists, Artists, Musicians, or any alternative or creative types.

While he owned a convenience store in Venice,Florida and was a friend to Mohamed Atta he disappeared immediately after 9/11 or so we thought.As it turned out he did NOT seek refuge in the enemy states of Afghanistan under the Taliban or in Saddam's Iraq.No.Although of Lebanese birth,he took refuge with W Bush's allies in Saudi Arabia where he was and presumeably is protected and was employed by the U.S. military-industrial corp whore Titan, presumably using his 'good works' in Venice,Florida with Mohamed Atta et.al.,as part of his resume..
