L.A. River Day

The Los Angeles City Council proclaimed today as L.A. River Day to raise awareness about the urban waterway.

Stu Pitt says:

Huh? What? A 2-foot-wide river gets a "Day"?

Doesn't the Los Angeles City Council have anything better to do, like alleviate the worst traffic congestion in the nation, fix hundreds of thousands of potholes, and create a couple million new jobs?

L.A. River Day? Really?
