I don't think anyone would be able to understand Bob Dylan if he started complaining about the smell.

i am sure the property owners think they own the beach, so they own the rotting carcass. handle it property owners.

Look, douchebags, remove the whale, THEN argue over who is responsible for it. If it was my house, I'd hire someone with a front loader to bury the damn thing, then sue the city, state, county, whoever, at my leisure, AFTER the goddamn thing was gone and I didn't have to smell it any more. There are times to stand on principle, and times to get a rotting whale carcass underground.

Like hippy with a hint of rotting whale.

FTA: "It's on a private beach" controlled by homeowners down to the high tide line and the state is responsible for the tidelands, Baker said.

Seems like a cut and dried case to me. If they have the right to keep the public off their beach, they have the right to remove their own whale carcasses. Same principle as applies to the yard waste I pile on the curb every fall.

I have a piece of popcorn shell stuck in the roof of my mouth. I would trade it for a rotting whale outside my window right now.

They can't keep the public off the beach, David Geffen and other residents have been forced since 2005 to grant public access as they lost their court cases. The coast belongs to the public up to and including the mean high tide line, or where it would be if sea walls and levees had not been built. I would take this as meaning that it is the city of Malibu that should be disposing of the whale carcass, and besides that 40,00lbs is in and around open water is a public health problem.

Did someone at least sweep up the shattered bowl of petunias that was found near by?

I'd be happy to let the topless Russian model inspect my pistol.



Obscure?

Guess his 115th dream has arrived (hard to forget this particular whale I'll bet).
