o China Patte rns Wahso wrong about a lantern on Main Street? By Quentin Scott and Peter Barnes now «pale imitation of it’s advertised Dear Quentin, Before launching into my usual tirade’ against the tyrants of trivia and their. desire to control all aspects of our daily lives, I should explain that I am not a. happy man. As you know, a successful day cannot begin without a hearty breakfast, and by that I do not mean a bowl of sawdust.and chaff with non-fat milk. Last Sunday being Jeeves’ day off, I perused the kitchen in search of the butler’s pantry. Strangely, Olga and her famous sausages were nowhere to be found, and the simple decision was made to take a drive up to Stein’s for breakfast. 3 Without going into too many details l will say that my disappointment was profound. Predictably, the waitresses name ended in an “i,” and after ignoring me for forty minutes she appeared genuinely con-cerned over the fate of my missing — “Glitretind Breakfast.” Ten minutes later I finally received the remains of what once must have been a hearty meal, but was form. The staff grudgingly apologized and before disappearing for the last time explained that they were having trouble because their “computers were down.” Now call me old fashioned, but I have yet to be convinced of the gourmet benefits of the microwave oven, never mind the possibility of cooking on a computer. If I had seen any member of staff before leaving, I would have advised getting a more powerful unit if they intend to cook bacon and eggs on it. Alternatively, advertising a virtual breakfast would be more honest especially if it requires a processor rather than a chef. Sorry, you were asking ae where to spend the money. Build the ski br idge, close Park and Heber avenues to the south, buy the Bad Ass coffee shop parcel and create a public plaza incorporating the Kimball Art center, the former Watts resi- dence and all routes to the newly pedestrtanized Main Street. Of course, this would important vis-a-vis matters of global only work if we provided extra parking in Swede Alley, perhaps two or three levels with a public park on the upper surface and a few boutique retail units at strect level for those who cannot afford Main Street rents. Now, plans like this require imagination, energy, enthusiasm and knowledge in order to be implemented. Unfortunately, I believe a previous task force of petty obstructionists has already -sealed our fate, and it is not looking too importance. BeforeI lose my. train of thought in irrelevant xenophobic ee let me. get right to the point. The city staff on Sept. 5 recommended to the plan- — ning commission that the proprietor of the Wahso restaurant be forbidden from hanging Chinese lanterns outside his ethnic establishment, using the excuse that they were not appropriate within the Horrific District.
