Introducing Today’s Guest Writer: Angela Serratore

I thought today we'd try something a little different.  There are a lot of issues related to the transportation and the quest to make Los Angeles' streets more livable, sustainable and environmentally friendly.  Unfortunately, I sometimes neglect some of those related issues when racing to the next "breaking news" story.  One of the major issues that doesn't get a lot of ink here is historic preservation.

Today's writer, Angela Serratore, is a freelance writer focusing on urban historic preservation and related issues.  After four years in Western Massachusetts and one in the District of Columbia, she returned to her ancestral homeland of Sherman Oaks to apply to graduate school and pester her elected officials about pedestrian-unsafe intersections. Her favorite Los Angeles transit resource is the DASH, and willingly admits that she does not know how to ride a bicycle.
