For that matter, there are some great places to eat in or near Malibu too.

That's the one thing I really miss about So. Cal is the restaurants.

I used to get into discussions with Burbank Karl regarding some of the really good places that were around in the 70-80's and are no longer there.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen Burbank Karl around here for a long time....hope all is well with him.

I’m not sure what happened to him.

With regard to the places that catered to the middle-class people who used to live here, their base now lives in points east. It’s with a great deal of sorrow that I view this place today. I remember what it used to be.

So do you.

I laugh when I think of American Graffiti.

If people could see the area that was filmed in today, they’d toss their cookies.

You can’t even hang out in much of that area after dark.

I went to a Sears on the corner of Van Nuy’s Boulevard and Roscoe about five years ago. The signage was in Hispanic lettering about 5” tall, with English subtitled below in about 1.5” lettering. One of the people who worked there, warned me not to remain there after dark. That is where Adrays used to be. It was a very busy middle-class store, doing a massive volume in sales.

Van Nuys Boulevard looks like you took modern buildings, moved out all Caucasians, and moved in the inhabitants of Tijuana, after issuing each of them a shopping basket they could stroll the streets with.

I use to cruise that boulevard in the evenings. Now it’s a source of deep sorrow even to think about.
