Q: How many existentialists does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Two. One to screw it in, and one to observe how the light bulb itself symbolizes a single incandescent beacon of subjective reality in a netherworld of endless absurdity reaching out towards a cosmos of nothingness.

The guy is a retired phone company technician. Probably built it using the knowledge he gained putting up telephone poles or something.

And from the sounds of it, it was built on his own property, and they just decided to kick up a fuss about permits to tear it down.

Acton does get burned over every couple of years. The people of Acton & Agua Dulce are pit vipers when it comes to 'protecting' their land from 'encroachment.'.

With LA County struggling financially, I wonder how many more building permits will get 'lost'.

/Why no, I don't trust our fair county. What makes you ask?

Because, for 10 million people, we have a mere 5 Supervisors, each representing more than many governors or US senators and representatives, and somehow expected to respond to all of them? Oh, and that the Board of Supes is filled with the likes of Yaroslavsky, Antonovich, and Molina? I dunno, WHY? Tell me! TELL ME!

To be fair, I doubt this shiat was anything near to safe. But I mean... what the hell, the only person likely to be hurt by it if it fell down was this old retired guy. So... why not? Why not let him? I don't know if Watts is unincorporated (it might be, but I doubt it) but if it is, and these rules had been enforced, Watts Towers wouldn't exist. And now it's a tourist attraction, of sorts.
