Mr. President: Send Funds to Silver Lake!

Val Zavala/SoCal Connected

KCET's SoCal Connected blogger Val Zavala shared this photo a couple of days ago, which spotlights a bizarre sight in our city. Says Zavala, of the mysterious floating telephone pole: "L.A. has some strange sights. But this one is a winner. I took this photograph in Silverlake on March 10th. My caption is attached, but I invite you all to add your own. (No, I did NOT photoshop it.)." The caption? A note to the man in Washington DC who is handing out money to help cities stay, er, afloat: "Dear Mr. President, We've got a little infrastructure problem here. Would you mind throwing a little stimulus money our way?" Anyone know what the deal with the pole is?
