A day in the life of a pair of giant scissors

The Not-So-Secret Life of Scissors


Twenty years ago, Los Angeles County had six giant pairs of scissors for ribbon cutting ceremonies. Four disappeared. The remaining two are closely guarded. This is a day in their life.

LA County continues to struggle with deficit issues. With cuts left and right, one thing they're not getting rid of is the giant pair of ribbon cutting scissors that they hold near and dear.
