Los Angeles' most famous hot dog bun needs a roll. Trouble is, Tail O' the Pup owner Dennis Blake doesn't have a place to roll it to. The landmark hot dog stand that resembles a mustard-slathered wienie-in-a-bun -- featured in movies and music videos and considered an important piece of L.A. architecture -- has sat on wheels and been covered with a tarp in a Torrance warehouse since being evicted five years ago from its longtime home. Blake badly wants to return the Pup to its chowhound followers.

You recently reported about Brentwood and all the wonderful things Councilman Marvin Braude has done for San Vicente Boulevard. This is astounding to me, since Mr. Braude's district includes the area on Van Nuys Boulevard from Magnolia Boulevard up to Sherman Way, one of the most unsightly areas in the Valley. I have lived here for over 40 years and have done most of my shopping on Van Nuys Boulevard, until the last few years when the nice shops left and we have nothing but tacky stores with tacky signs and merchandise displayed on the sidewalks.
