If you click on the map you'll see that Google Maps has fixed its misspelling of Sanford, but still insists it's a place on the L.A. streetscape rather than merely a post office name — albeit the one where Charles Bukowski worked. (I notice Google also calls Carthay Circle Theatre a place...but not Carthay Circle sans theater, which actually is a place. Go figure.) Meanwhile, reader Dana Gabbard notes that he was in the Bukowski post office at 6th and Harvard the other day to buy stamps. Guess what: the receipt still reads Sanford Station, six years after Congress changed the name to the Dosan Ahn Chang Ho Post Office.
By the way: In a rant in which Steve Lopez gets hip to some realities about the Westside subway extension — that it won't go to the beach, won't be done to the West LA VA stop until 2036 and isn't a universally popular project — the columnist stumbles on a key geographic coordinate. He proposes "congestion pricing on all the ridiculously traffic-snarled east-west corridors west of the 10 Freeway..." West of the 10? Let's hope he meant the 110.
