Hefner, his bunnies and the basement of LA’s First Congregational
Kevin Roderick at LAObserved has an interesting post about Hugh Hefner, who made an appearance tonight in the basement of the First Congregational Church on Commonwealth in LA. Pretty sure that’s a historical building, though it’s hard to imagine it’s as old as ol’ Hugh.
And, no, he wasn’t there to praise the Lord. Hef was there to be praised.
No, not for founding Playboy (though they didn’t hate the playa). He was praised by LA Councilman and regular cheerleader Tom LaBonge for helping save the Hollywood sign and the open space around it. Kevin wrote:
I should also thank Hef. On clear, cool days, the Hollywood sign is one of the first things when I reach the top of the hill above my apartment some 30 miles away in the South Bay. When it’s visible, it provides a great start to my day.
