Finally Tearing Down Landmark Mall??

Does anyone know when/if they will finally tear down Landmark Mall? The mall is a traffic magnet and a highly innefficent use of space. Not to mention it has almost NO decent stores.

For at least two years there has been talk of developing "Landmark Town Center" or "Landmark Village" though I suspect that Mr. Bush's Economy has put a damper on getting the construction loans etc needed for development.


The Landmark Mall website is incredibly unhelpful -- It has had the same information for over a year (practically none). The mall development company basically returns all inquiries with form letters.

Anyone have any more recent information?

Michell Malkin comments on ACORN’s shakedown artists and thugs who occupied a public school board meeting room to prevent government educators from cutting costs, firing useless teachers, and dealing with financial realities.

This is now the second "civil disobedience" campaign waged by the entitlement-mongers.

Our Community Organizer-in-Chief, who spoke so voluminously yesterday about education reform, was unavailable for comment…

A school board meeting turned into a display of civil disobedience Tuesday as about 50 "educators" refused to leave, creating a brief standoff with police, who refused to make any arrests in the presence of media.

The members of ACORN and United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) -- all wearing bright "red" shirts -- entered the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education meeting on Tuesday afternoon, sat down and began chanting. The fist represents union, as "many weak fingers can come together to create a strong fist", and is also used to express solidarity, generally with oppressed peoples.

Police said the protesters were staging an illegal occupation of a public building. The district said no arrests would occur as long as members of media were in building.

UTLA President A.J. Duffy approached the speakers’ lectern and told the board, "You know why we’re here. You know I’m not leaving this rostrum. You know I’m going to keep talking."

As he spoke several teachers sat on the floor in front of the board and held up signs saying "Students lose when we lose teachers, No layoffs" as the crowd began chanting.

Board President Monica Garcia repeatedly asked Duffy to sit down, but he kept speaking. The microphone was turned off, but Duffy continued to speak and the chanting continued. Garcia then announced that the "disturbance has interrupted our meeting to the point where the orderly conduct of this meeting is not feasible."

WTF cares? A new hospital Alexandria doesn't even need won't revive this city at all. It's too far gone for anything.
