Homeless men who stay in a city parking lot across from the Venice library, put up a Christmas tree at the entrance. It is a lovely tree decorated with an assortment of found objects, fanciful trash, personal items, and 'borrowed' holiday trimmings. Pushed through the tree's branches are personal 'ornaments', two recent LAPD citations given out for possession of a stolen shopping cart and for having 'open alcoholic beverage' in public.
