Venice is great BUT it is NOT "dogtown". Santa Monica was, is and always will be. Even though the city could care less about it's unique cultural past and is hell bent on turning it into some sanitized yuppie tourist trap!

Venice is still full of thugs , welfare kings and queens and idiotic losers with no talent and no brains who think they are artistic and creative . Venice has no culture to lose . Any change in demographics will be an improvement.

Simple arithmetic:

Whites=nice Venice
Non-Whites=bad Venice

This simple proven mathematical formula can be extrapolated to any location on the face of the earth.

I don't have a dog, so why should it matter to me? I don't think it is cool to have dogs running around and pooping all over beaches anyway.

LOL, if it had anything to do with dogs, I'd agree with you. Santa Monica's Ocean Park neighborhood got the nickname Dogtown from the skateboarders in the 70's who revolutionized the sport. There's a couple of films about it. Dogtown and the Z Boys is the best one.

LOL! OK, but my biggest complaint about Venice Beach is those damn illegal alien teenage hookers. They walk around dressed like total sluts, and charge guys only $25 for sex!
