The builders of the Monstrosity under construction at 7th and San Vicente stepped into the stratosphere of bad taste this morning with the addition of a lopsided stairway leading to nowhere. Evidently, the red metallic beams I thought were reinforcing the structure (God forbid) where actually meant to support a jaunty, outdoor stairway. Said one area resident, "I guess the architect is trying to make a statement." "Yes," I replied. "It's a cry for help ... someone get him into a '12-step' program before it's too late!"
