When you learn that the people who clearcut 80 trees and several acres of shrubs at Mar Vista were only slapped on the wrist with a $3,000 fine you get angry.
When you get angry you decide to go swim with the orcas;
When you swim with the orcas you get hyperthermia;
When you get hyperthermia they take you to Peace Health;
When you go to Peace Health you want to die;
When you want to die, at Peace Health, they refuse your end of life request;
When Peace Health won’t let you die you open a Subway sandwich shop on Spring Street;
When you open a Subway on Spring Street islanders run you out of town on a rail;
Don’t get run out of town on a rail. Demand that substantial fines and penalties’ for such egregious violations of shoreline regulations be enacted.
