Coffee, Computer and Coyote Craziness

Egads, Another Coffee House In Montrose

How much coffee do we really need?  The idea of Starbucks wanting to add a location on the corner of Ocean View and Honolulu is simply ridiculous.  Not only is there the well established business of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf directly across the street, but there is also Black Cow, City Hall, and Java Brew.  All of these businesses are within the few short blocks of the Montrose Shopping Park.  Next thing you know they’ll be wanting to add another sushi bar.

Computers Stolen From Freemont

When a common thief doesn’t even have the decency to refrain from burglarizing and elementary school he/she crosses over in to the realm of completely repulsive professions.  Unless they have been living in a bubble, in which case they probably wouldn’t need all of the ten computers they stole and most likely won’t be able to acquire a wifi signal, they have to know that our schools have already been hit hard enough by continual government cutbacks.  Yes, insurance will cover the replacement costs, but it will do nothing to keep us from feeling that our children’s educations have been violated yet again … but on a whole new level.

County Coyote Killings

Los Angeles County has rationalized that a pack of coyotes who took up residence in a burned out home in the foothills will be euthanized.  They have decided that this is more humane than relocating them.  (I don’t get it either)  But first they are allowing a media circus to take place on the street in front of the home.  I’m hoping the coyotes decide to flee from the glare of the paparazzi’s lights and cameras, as so many celebrities usually do, before the County gets a chance to carry out their death sentence.

Coyote Update:  A Reprieve

Plan A was to trap the coyotes, euthanize them, and then tear down the house.  Now, after many many complaints, the County is moving forward with Plan B.  They will tear down the house and encourage the coyotes to relocate.

And why didn’t they try this more logical plan in the first place?

    Re Starbucks: Actually, I am glad to hear about another Starbucks in the ‘hood. The one I got to, on N. Verdugo Rd. under the 2 freeway overpass, is always jammed, with lines out the door sometimes. I’ve been telling them for years they need to open another one. But I was hoping it would be farther south, near Verdugo Woodlands or GCC. Right now, there are none between downtown Glendale (@Wilson and Glendale Ave) and La Canada. Well, at least we have Leon now.
