MOrning Report

  • A city survey of historic buildings and sites associated with L.A.’s Jewish community was prompted by the demolition a decade ago of the Soto-Michigan Jewish Community Center in Boyle Heights Jewish Journal
  • The L.A. Animal Services Department has allocated $800,000 to study the environmental impact of feral cats and city policies regarding the animals. The study, prompted by a legal action, comes as the department spends about $500,000 annually to handle feral cats at animal shelters.  The estimates of the city’s feral cat population range from 1 million to 3 million.

  1. Don’t publicize the lengthy history of Eastern European Jews in Boyle Heights too much ,that would destroy the Defend Boyle Heights and Brown Beret’s narrative of Boyles Heights being solely for La Raza.

    • I wouldn’t worry about Defend or Brown Berets – The BB have been around forever and no one gives a flying fig about what they think or have to say. The same five guys have been showing up for years every time there is a police shooting in East L.A. to squawk about police brutality. The whole anti-gentrification deal has just given them another excuse to dress up and pretend to be Revolutionaries. Defend types are just the kind of put upon, faux oppressed, suffering types liberals like to rally behind, but they are so racist and xenophobic that they will never gain traction or become a legitimate “movement” because they are flat out advocating for the removal of white people from E.L.A. (something that isn’t even legal). At best, they are minor annoyances – like peach pits.

  2. Wait…I’m confused…I thought it was ALWAYS their neighborhood?!
