Asthma Vapineze sign lit up.
At least one Southern California man dedicates his days to uncovering the truth behind strange LA landmarks. Last time we caught up Chris Nichols, he had been shimmying along barbed wire next to the Pasadena Freeway. This time the writer behind the Ask Chris column in Los Angeles Magazine tells us why the coyotes are looking emaciated and poses two stumpers. First, who wrote the poem that helps school kids remember the streets in Downtown Los Angeles? And what's the deal with that neon sign, "Asthma Vapineze" hanging over a vacant midcity storefront?
From Main we

O, wouldn't it be Grand
