  1. Maybe Los Angeles and Torrance should do something about the slumlords in those connecting communities that do everything to skirt local building codes, don’t get the proper permits to do construction on these residential units and stop these slumlords from doing work on Sunday afternoons to hide their illegal work from building inspectors.

    Just a thought.
