Shire's home

Cluck! It slipped past Chicken Corner yesterday: three-quarters of the front page of the LA Times Home section and two full pages after the jump -- a massive outlay of newspaper space, the likes of which usually is given to major fires and other disasters. The subject? The brightly colored home of Echo Park resident Peter Shire, a sculptor and ceramicist who seems to know personally two-thirds of the neighborhood. The story was written by Echo Park-er David Keeps.
