    Yay, LA river! It certainly looks navigable in Long Beach this time of year, with at least a couple feet of fast-flowing water in the center channel.

    Perhaps we could get a downtown river “lake” like Tempe AZ, with ferries!

    Or we could start an LA river kayak sharing program. The tourists loves the Kayak rentals in Belmont Shore.

    Gondola rides? Starchy (laist.com commenter) would be happy. ;-)
