Chalk another one to memory

9:43 a.m.: According to numerous emails, a bulldozer showed up at about 7 a.m. this morning at Chicken Corner. The Delta Avenue bungalow was being demolished -- despite about three years of serious effort by Kevin Kuzma, president of the Echo Park Historical Society, and several other individuals, to re-home the home. The bungalow doesn't/didn't look like much on the outside, but indoors it was intact, a good example of its historical type. It sits/sat in a corner of the large, empty lot that once was an urban mini-ranch and gave Chicken Corner its name even before the mural by Aaron Donovan. Recently, a taker who owned an empty lot about 16th of a mile from Chicken Corner tried to move the bungalow to his property but got tangled up in city tape. They don't make it easy, and now this one is gone. Still, the condo people got their permissions for Chicken Corner, and now we have those to look forward to.
