Grading the neighborhood

Spotted in the places where it gets steep this weekend: my friend Chris Nichols and his fiancee. Chris was equipped with a plastic protractor and a bucket of inspiration. They saw him on Lucretia. He was seeking truth. The author recently of The Leisure Architecture of Wayne McAllister Chris is now out to find out which street really is the steepest in Los Angeles. Why, Chris? Everyone knows that Fargo in Echo Park is not only the steepest in LA but in Cali-whole, and that includes San Francisco. Well, Mr. Chris isn't satisfied. So he's been goin' round. Not just to Echo Park, but San Pedro, Highland Park. And he claims he's found something. Me thinks this truly fine but perhaps deluded soul needs a better protractor. Made of metal, at least!
