The LA River Can Be Navigated!

We mentioned yesterday that the LA River goofballs want to turn the storm channel into one of the world's great rivers and to do so they must prove to the Army Corps of Engineers that it can be navigated.  One of our readers has found the proof that you can pilot the LA!

Ironically as I type an episode of The Beverly Hillbillies is airing on TV Land.  The Hillbillies took a visit to the Los Angeles River to go fishing.  Jed and Granny found the river "just awful" and "pitiful." Granny said that Los Angeles was so ashamed of it's river they "went and poured concrete all around it!"

Phil Hendrie had put together a bit with one of his characters describing plans for approval of a white water rapids ride he thought would be commercially successful. This was back many years ago during a rainy year when the river really flowed. He had a lot of callers falling for it, as usual with his wacky scenarios.

At least they didn't photograph the Titanic navigating the L.A. River!

I heard the canoes of the environmentalists "navigating" the LA River have roller skates welded to the bottom side to avoid the appearance that the "water" is not deep enough to "navigate." Good luck boys! Let's have a little Roller Disco music as the theme song.

i heard those goofballs actually did the whole river. is that true? that's pretty awesome -- as long as they don't think it can exist in this day and age as a completely natural river. improving water quality couldn't hurt though. i heard that because the USACE didn't want them to use boats, that they had to walk on water to complete the less-shallow sections of the river!
