The Jury Talks Back

Does a picture tell 1,000 lies?

God knows that the intersection of Olympic and Bundy in West LA is a nightmare for drivers during the evening commute.  There are lots of reasons to think that maybe a major new hospital complex at that location is not a good idea.  Since I drive past that point every day, I can understand the opposition. 

But there is no excuse for the enormous lie that graces the cover of the mass mailer that went out today:

Anyone looking at this flyer would think that this huge campus was being dropped into the middle of a residential district, surrounded by a sea of houses with swimming pools and, no doubt, small children and pets who would all be at risk.

In fact it is a run-down commercial/light industrial area with a number of vacant and/or foreclosed properties, and no houses for quite some ways.

The REAL Olympic & Bundy

Shame on the “Fight Bundy Village” folks. As Congressman Weiner demonstrated, lies never help, especially when the truth will serve as well.

  4. As a result of this ad, the project was pulled from the city’s agenda.

  5. Can’t argue with success, Kevin.

    Cali is also where that Janice Hahn video aired.

    Which I laughed a great deal about, but in my area, such an advertisement would have backfired.

  6. “High Noon Entertainment”? Why do I have a feeling that’s either a strip club or a porn producer?

  7. I’d be absolutely terrified of living near a hospital! Why, they treat sick people there!*

    *I live a block away from Kaiser Hospital in San Diego. The disadvantage of having a medical center close at hand somehow escapes me.

  9. I am just around a corner from a hospital. The paramedics who saved my life – I was on the brink when they arrived – said the nearness of the Emergency Room and quick treatment made all the difference. Who does not want quick access to a hospital in emergencies?

  10. A hospital called “Bundy??” Yikes. Reminds me of OJ and Ted Bundy. That’s worse than being in ICU bed #13 on the 13th floor, with a doctor of the last name Kevorkian.
