Everett Freeman of Westwood deplores the 1980s as being totally without class. He means that nobody has it. "Class almost seems to have disappeared from our society. America had class once. People had class, music had class, movies had class. Cary Grant had class, Humphrey Bogart had class in his fashion; Ronald Colman and Sidney Howard and Franklin Roosevelt had class. . . . I can think of almost nobody today who has it. Notoriety, fame, fortune--but not class."

Glendale's housing manager was blunt with his concerns about giving a prominent developer $12.2 million to build low-income housing near the city's downtown. "I strongly recommend … not funding this project at anywhere near the level currently being requested," Mike Fortney wrote in an April 2008 letter to his boss. Glendale City Council members awarded the money anyway. The following year, they paid an additional $1.7 million for the project, dubbed Vassar City Lights, a five-story stucco building on San Fernando Road.
