Edge Update

I've got a funny feeling that this fight isn't over, but the California Coastal Commission has made it official and formally nixed U2 guitarist David Evans, a middle aged multi millionaire who rather pathetically refers to himself as The Edge, plan to build five mega mansions on an environmentally sensitive ridge line over looking Malibu and the Pacific Ocean. As commissioner Peter Douglas remarked, "In my 38 years, I have never seen a project as environmentally devastating as this one. An environmentally sensitive person would never pick this site to develop." Law suits to follow.


Of course Evans could get back some of that Edge by donating the land to The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which might help get a Santa Monica Mountains National Park jump started, and in return, in addition to a hefty tax deduction, we can name the ridge line after him. The Edge Overlook. Now that's sharp.
