Odds and Ends 52

I know I am tardy posting this Odds and Ends, but I feel it was well worth the procrastination.

You may want to take a look at:

It's the blog that shows a photo of Bob Bisno's Beverly Park North house....the one that is apparently in foreclosure.

Yup, you read the last word in the paragraph correctly. I wonder what Bob's response is going to be when questioned at the February 27 Wilmington Neighborhood Council meeting where he is going to try and get support from that group for his weapon of mass development?

It this just too rich, or what? I imagine the majority of us "ranting elitists" as Bob has called us, aren't in the foreclosure state that Bob is in.

Now, is this the same house Bob's neighbors sued him over because of some gate issues? I'll have to check my files to see if it was this house, or the house he used to own, in the same area.

The "Mardi-Gras" event held last weekend at the site apparently shed no new light, according to an attendee, on what we already know about Bob's current plans.

Anybody remember former L.A. City Councilman Rudy Svornich? Last year, according to City records, Bisno Development LLC paid Svornich and Associates over $152, 700.00 for their lobbying efforts on Bob's behalf.

It seems that after you are paid by L.A. City for being a "servant of the people" you get to spend the rest of your working life "serving up the people" to folks who are willing to pay for them.

We are still waiting for the Planning Department to reveal what they believe Bob could build at Ponte Vista.

Bisno in foreclosure? Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

On another note, looks like the big threat of being 'green' and getting LEEDs certified only if Bob gets to build his monster is going to be another big lie.
L.A. ready to enact tighter green building standards

Perhaps Bob is self destructing and collapsing from the weight of his oversized ego.
