Evidence suggests that builders have been working overtime to complete work on the Infamous Monstrosity under construction at 7th and San Vicente. While the Good News is that they've erected a scaffold in front of the building, the Bad News is that it appears unlikely they'll be using it to execute the architect.

Much to my surprise, at least one "local" appears to admire the building. "Looks like they're building a nice, new house," said an Anonymous Nincompoop in an obvious effort at making small talk. "Nice?," I replied, incredulously. "NICE?!!? The only thing NICE about it is that it stands as a NICE, big monument to colossal, bad taste ...!"
