  1. Bengal cat. Would love to have one but am afraid of thievery.

  2. I hate those Tree-of-Heaven that are growing behind the sign. They are invasive and nearly impossible to stop. They’re spreading all over my neighborhood in Highland Park and I spend every other weekend pulling rapidly growing 12-inch seedlings out of my yard. They’re ruining Northeast LA’s natural vegetation.
