Nov. 21, 1960: Matt Weinstock notes that the fire hydrant outside the new state building at 2nd and Hill streets is in the gutter because the street was widened during construction and nobody can agree on who should pay for moving it to the sidewalk. (Yes this is the Cold War monstrosity that was finally torn down after being damaged in the Northridge earthquake. The site is currently occupied by a vacant pit that grows weeds and collects water whenever it rains).

DEAR ABBY: I am a 55-year-old spinster and I want to buy me a husband ... I am not bad looking. I can give him a car of his own... a good allowance to do as he pleases and no questions asked. I want a man between 20 and 40 who doesn't drink. I own 4 houses and a drive-in and have money in the bank ... There is nothing wrong with me ... and he can sleep as late as he pleases. I am sick of playing hard to get. I believe in putting all my cards on the table and I want a man who will do the same.
