If you're reading this blog, there's a solid chance you already read R.I.P. Los Angeles.
The last survivor, 1346 North Fairfax Avenue, was left empty and boarded up. It burned down just last night. Original owner Jack Mulhall was an actor and SAG negotiator.
I must be getting REALLY tired of this, since I would normally insert a razor-sharp rant here, yet all I can muster at the moment is a very heavy sigh.
These fires have consequences. They pose a danger to neighboring homes (fires spread far too easily), they pollute, they can kill or severely injure someone, and I for one don't think it's right for owners of empty buildings to have them knocked down on the taxpayers' dime (whether that is ever their intention or not).
I'm going to bed. But don't worry about me; I'll be back in a day or two with some utterly horrifying dirt on the property management company from hell.
