  1. Reason.com/Reason Foundation is a right-wing/Libertarian organization, just to let you know; hence their angle and viewpoint in the article you posted. Just saying; Reason Foundation isn't exactly the most objective source you could post.
  2. And speaking of the Coliseum, looks like its renovation is wrapping up: https://app.oxblue.com/open/usc/lacoliseumrenovation
  3. I wasn't sure where to post this article, because it's not really LA2028-related, but I thought this was kind of a cool story, from the Los Angeles Times; my apologies if the formatting is all funky: It was the Coliseum’s mystery mural, until a teenage detective solved its 50-year puzzle By COLLEEN SHALBY JUL 12, 2019 | 5:00 AM Thanks to the work of a young sleuth, restoration artists Aneta Zebala, left, Suzanne Morris and Adam Romcio gained important information about the Coliseum's mural. (Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times) For decades, the
  4. What the heck are you talking about? Atlanta got bad treatment in the press because aside from the Olympic Park bombing, they were considered one of the more poorly run Olympics. I mean come ON, bus drivers there were getting lost taking athletes to their competitions. That's pretty bad! Let alone the crass commercialism that marred those Games, which the IOC was not happy with. Cheap facilities? Again, what are you talking about? UCLA housing the athletes, yeah, they're existing dorms, but they're not exactly mobile homes either. They're perfect for housing Olympic athletes, and
  5. This stadium is really starting to take shape now. From Urbanize Los Angeles: Swooping Roof Canopy Hoisted Into Place at the Inglewood NFL Stadium Link: https://urbanize.la/post/swooping-roof-canopy-hoisted-place-inglewood-nfl-stadium?fbclid=IwAR3PkiTFaFxq4FBt35RAJjz93MPmdno3i_YixoxHijcO4yLxwj-FbJo-QhU
  6. You're being sarcastic, right? But then again, in the US, a lot of conservatives were saying that it was government overreach when states started enacting mandatory seat belt wearing laws back in the 1980s. In Spain, I think carrying a yellow vest in your car is also mandatory; you're supposed to wear it when changing a flat tire or having to walk along the side of a highway or something. Also in Spain, it's mandatory to have warning triangles in your car, so that you can place them on the road when changing a flat tire or whatever. I see nothing wrong with that. How
  7. Congestion pricing already kind of exists in Los Angeles County, so it's really nothing new. For a number of years now, the 10 Freeway from El Monte to downtown LA, and the 110 Freeway from Harbor Gateway to downtown LA, has express toll lanes, with congestion pricing, and I thought the fees collected for use of the express toll lanes was supposed to help with public transit, but not to the extent of making public transit free. My only beef when they put in these express toll lanes was that they used to be HOV lanes, paid for by our tax money, and then they made it so that you had
  8. I believe that's outdated info regarding LA. I remember some time ago I read a news blurb somewhere that LA's GDP was over a trillion dollars. These sources also claim that: https://www.statista.com/statistics/183822/gdp-of-the-los-angeles-metro-area/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_by_GDP
  9. I drove by this site a few weeks ago. The stadium in Inglewood is really starting to take shape. Fresh Renderings and a 360-Degree Tour of the Hollywood Park Development https://urbanize.la/post/fresh-renderings-and-360-degree-tour-hollywood-park-development
  10. It never really had one per se, at least not in a very long time. But, when I was younger, certain stretches of Sunset Boulevard were known for prostitution (Hugh Grant back in the 1990s getting busted there). Santa Monica Boulevard east of West Hollywood also was known for where the rent boys hung out, and some of the tranny prostitutes. Nowadays, you don't really see prostitution on those streets. Maybe they've moved. Or maybe the internet has changed things. Or possibly, prostitutes hang out at bars and clubs now.
  11. A little news blurb regarding LA2028: From olympic.org: LA 2028 MOVES FORWARD WITH FOCUS ON PARTNERSHIP, LEGACY, INSPIRATION AND INNOVATION LA 2028 UPDATED REPRESENTATIVES OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC) AND INTERNATIONAL PARALYMPIC COMMITTEE (IPC) ON THEIR FIRST COORDINATED VISIT TO LOS ANGELES SINCE THE CITY WAS AWARDED THE OLYMPIC GAMES 2028 ON ITS VISION TO IMPLEMENT AN INNOVATIVE GAMES PLAN THAT WILL BENEFIT ANGELENOS FOR DECADES TO COME.

  12. An LA Metro video promoting the use of Metro Rail to get to the Banc of California Stadium, featuring Latif Blessing of the LAFC. It'd be great if Metro started promoting itself more and more and producing more of these kinds of videos to encourage residents and visitors to take public transportation to the Olympic venues come 2028. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V61dgYxgCE
  13. I'm looking forward to the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center and the new display for the Endeavour as well. I saw that model when I went to the California Science Center on Monday; I skipped work that day to go there, because one of my nephews, who is 14, had a science experiment entered into the California Science Fair, held at the Science Center, which took place April 23-24. I wanted to spend time with him and support him and his science exhibit. I didn't realize what a big deal that Science Fair is, students from the whole state participated, so Exposition Park had a lot going on; plus
  14. The current Los Angeles City Hall was dedicated 90 years ago today. Obviously, it'll be 100 years old when LA hosts the Olympics again. And at Exposition Park, adjacent to the Coliseum, construction on the Museum of Narrative Art is well underway. Hunter Kerhart Flickr
  15. The Banc of California Stadium is nearly finished. Is it me, or did this go up really fast?? The Coliseum renovation is moving right along... All images by STERLINGDAVISPHOTO.
