Today, as we're sure you know, is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Perhaps his "I Have a Dream" speech is what inspired the LA Times to ask a bunch of local activists and entertainers what they would dream up for an imagined Los Angeles. To our surprise, nobody invoked Blade Runner. Instead, people are thinking along the lines of transportation (TC Boyle, Mike Watt) and graffitti (Robbie Conal).

So we put the question to you: How would you reimagine Los Angeles? Solar panels on all schools? Tear down every AM/PM and replace them with parks? Return water to the canals of Venice? Go on - dream big.
