People are leaving Venice, and nobody knows why.
I used to live out near Venice--before I moved back east into West Hollywood--so I am uniquely equipped to offer a theory:
Homeless people. They smell, and they make me feel bad for owning a dope-ass flat screen.
If the people of Venice kick enough homeless people out in time, they--in turn--will not be forced to relocate...thus retaining their homes (and, resultantly, their balls-to-the-wall home entertainment systems outputting at HD-1080p).
In which case...you're welcome, America.
