Mark commented on enhager's blog post Helicopter Hella Loud, Part 1: A Look into the Noise Above Angelenos
"I blogged about this a few days ago, and no one replied, so I thought I was the only one that was bothered by it.  I've lived in LP since November but this only amped up in the past month. Other than the whirly bird ... WHAT'S UP?"

Police Copters

What is up with the police helicopters flying over the mall every night between 8 and 9? They fly so low some nights they shake the house. They circle with their bright light and then they fly away.  That does not happen on the westside. Why here?  There can't possibly be that much crime activity the same time every night. Is this something that community leaders asked for? I'm new so enlighten me.See More

"Hi, HP. Looking forward to catching up with you. Will have to be on the weekend, though. The longer commute cuts into my spare time during the week and work is good  but takes a lot of time. I know you're in touch with that emotion.;)"

It is weird that Mayor Eric Garcetti has office hours and that he's reaching out, waiting to hear from you. But it shouldn't be. Give it a shot and see if he listens.
