    Interesting but not nearly as egregious as when bel-air tech blocked Westwood Blvd. from Le Conte to Sunset – then again that was (1963) just before the morons in Westwood allowed the students to vote down (1966) that football stadium for the bel-airians.

    Hey how about an update on Jackie Robinson Field – any word on that ACLU-VA law suit – man when the ‘dawgs’ turn on each other it’s a show in itself.

    They tore out their tennis stadium which was actually pretty sweet – just far enough and steep enough in elevation to keep the “occupy Wall Street” down on the flatlands – a dorm or two sits there now.

    80 yd. practice field, a proposed athletic site with a faux front face and the de rigeur ‘socialist’ architectural design – best is the actual and promised $40 million needed to build that Gosplan mess.

    Come on Scott what next on the bel-airian horizon line?

      It was before the Martin architectural firm got their hooks into bldg. design i.e. check out the LADWP bldg. – boy the era of the Frank Lloyd Wright
      and his doyens – bean counters loved it because it was cheap to build and by the time the rebar began to rust well they’ve already turned to rust themselves.

      VKC – yeah man that is cutting edge almost as sterile as Wade Phillps

      I’m guessing martin’s ideas gave birth to all the CSU campuses – pick anyone save San Diego, SLO and San Jose and you won’t know one from the other.

      • Chug a lug, chug a lug makes CommieSUCC want to sing hi-dee- ho, I’m a ding a ling. CommieSUCC can you yodel one or two of your mania rants?

          • Yo, ho, ho and CommieSUCC is into the 151. Remember to lite the pipe only, so you doan’t set yourself on fire.

    A few years later and a 2 inch extension of the photo to the right and you can see my MGTD in front of Founders and my Man & Civ class.
