Arson Replacing Redevelopment Agencies in Hollywood

Since the courts have struck down Redevelopment Agencies in California, there's a new trend in redeveloping those run down neighborhoods - arson.  Arsonists are starting fires all over the Hollywood area, which led to a comical press conference today featuring what seemed like every political leader in Los Angeles, not to mention the fire and police departments involved.

There was some unintended truth offered at the news conference when both Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and West Hollywood Mayor John Duran described their neighborhoods as "dense".  Truer words were never spoken.

Duran even took it another step and in typical liberal fashion tried to reason with the arsonist via his news conference statement.  These people never figure out that you can't negotiate with evil.

It could be a hot holiday weekend in Hollywood.

I don't understand this one, Rick. I need more background, and you probably don't want to expand on this.

Just a question: Are the arsonists just people who like to burn stuff, or are the arsons being done for money to further some end?
