In praise of food trucks

Recently, there was an interesting confluence of stories in the paper. Though probably unintended, a story about the new future tenants at Burbank’s The Pointe office building (“KCET, DC Comics move in to area, June 25) was followed the next day by a dining review of the Clean Street Food truck (“Simple, fresh food from a truck,” June 26).

First of all, I’d like to express how refreshing it is to see a food truck reviewed, as they have become incredibly prevalent over the last couple of years, and many have excellent servings that deserve more attention.

Next, I’d like to point out (no pun intended) that The Pointe building on 2900 Alameda, in spite of being mostly empty on the inside, has become quite the popular gathering place. Every weekday, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., one can find as many as three different food trucks on an area on the building’s Alameda side.

Besides more literal fodder for future Leader/News-Press food reviews, it’s interesting to know that KCET employees might have diverse lunch breaks to look forward to.

No Native Americans, no worries


Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) is grandstanding for votes, which he does often (“Grandstanding political weasels,” June 24). Why else would he fake concern and use our time on an event that didn’t take place in our country and an event Turkey denies?

There is no Native American voting bloc in his district, so why bother with their problems?
