    The cornerstore at Robertson and Valence vanished the other day. Was it the thugs or the city? Who can tell?

    As they continue to tear down houses that are in “Eventual Danger of Collapse” they are missing houses all over that are in truly imminent danger. I drove past one at Galvez and Port yesterday. It is just waiting to squish someone. The other is at Daneel between Louisiana and Napolean. Someone has put some yellow tape up, but let me tell you, if this house did not collapse last night it will fall down today.
