Park stealers


Those Columbus Day fiends were at it again. This weekend, when they weren't even filming, they tried to tie up Echo Park Lake with cones and tape. They might have gagged it, too, if they thought they could get away with the deed. Fortunately, a concerned neighbor noticed this illegal blocking of the park -- it is public space, after all -- and was not about to tolerate efforts to keep the citizens of Echo Park and beyond from enjoying their own lake on such a beautiful day.

Reportedly, all it took was one angry call to Aric, a location manager, and the park-stealer elves came back out in force and took down the tape, and the cones went away too. Just like magic.
