  1. Re the Los Globos lawsuit against the city, OK, this does it for me with Edelson. This guy has been steamrolling over Echo Park and Silver Lake for too long, and now he feels so damn entitled that the standard city rules, regulations, hearings and decisions aren’t allowed to apply to him.

    In the face of significant neighborhood complaints, he sues to force his desires — to hell with the people who live here who he’s imposing upon! Outrageous.

    I don’t like what he is doing to the owner of El Cid. I don’t like him swooping in and creating big, loud nightclubs all over everywhere, and to hell with the surrounding neighbors. He has been imposing on and exploiting this area for too long. And his clear feeling of entitlement to do any damn thing he wants is just plain disgusting.

    I’d really like to see someone run him out.

  2. Agree.
