Aren’t they an endangered species?  Seriously,  I just heard a thing on the radio about the steelhead in LA River and how much money they are about to spend to try to replenish them and here you go, trotting down to the river for dinner?

Bill,

I should have known that if I said that we would get our first rain and that's what I woke up to this morning.

I am going to get my steelhead rod and go down to the banks of the Los Angeles River for some action after work.

Richard

Puleese, Richard.

 

Waterproofing isn’t a structural engineer’s responsibility unless there is no architect on the job.

 

You need to stop volunteering us for more responsibility than we already have.

Ralph,

Have you seen the Stata Center?  And, do you know of anything Gehry has done recently that was not screwed up?  And if a structural engineer doesn't know how to detail a building so it will be waterproof he/she should stick to southern California where it hasn't rained for over two years.
